Question about Hotpoint First Edition FEW12 Front Load Washer
Hi need some help with my washing machine. It fills with water and makes all correct noises but just won't spin at all. We have checked belt and that is still on and when turned will spin drum. Any ideas what else may be wrong with it and what we can do to fix it?
YEH WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS TAKE OFF THE MOTOR AND CHECK TO SEE IF THE CARBON BRUSHES ARE WORN OUT HAD THE SMAE PROBLEM TODAY WITH A MACHINE CAND THE IT WAS THE CARBON BRUSHES. THERE NOT VERY EXPENSIVE TO BUY AND VERY EASY TO FIT. tHE MOTOR IS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE DRUM AND IS ATTACHED BY TWO 13 MM BOLTS. UNDOO THEM CUT THE TIE CLIP WHICH IS CONNECTED TO THE MOTOR. UNSCREW THE TWO SCREWS EACH FOR BOTH BRUSHES. CHECK TO SEE HOW FAR THE STICK OUT FROM THEIR BALCK HOLDERS, IF THEY ONLY STICKING OUT A FEW MM THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO CHANGE THEM HOPEFULLY THAT WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. I RECONDTION HOPTPOINT MACHINES ALL DAY AND MOST LIKELY THIS IS YOUR PROBLEM.

Tips for a great answer:
If the cycle won't complete then either it's a problem with the timer or a cold-water supply problem:-
If your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water.
