Question about Creda W100FW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Did i fry the panel?

I have a front loading creda 1000 eco washing machine that will not spin at all. the timer seems to work fine, but the drum does not move at all through any of the cycles. the belt is in tact, but the motor isn't moving. last time i tried it, it was turning a for a little bit. again nothing. i don't know wether it may be the brushes or a balance sensor or what. Please Help!!!!!
Comment by credawash, posted on Jan 01, 2008 got the brushes in, and wow! things started going well. ran a couple of spin cycles as directed, and before i put the lid back on i dropped a tool into the machine. i was leaning over with my arm inside , and i guess my belt switched the machine on without knowing it, and must have moved the door release cable into contact with the motor and got a good spark that shot out of the bottom of the motor, now the motor isn't working again. might there be a fuse i could have blown? or did i toast the motor. was a really stupid thing to not have unplugged the machine. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!
Comment by credawash, posted on Jan 02, 2008 Ok, I think i judged where the spark came from. when looking down into the guts of the machine from the load side, there is a electrical board (the brains i would assume) on the right side. behind it i noticed that there is a burn mark on the sheet metal. I am sure this panel must have pushed up against the sheet metal when i was trying to retrieve my tool. Is the panel history? how spendy could it be?

    i have no idea how to identify the fuse on this thing. auto fuses sure, but on this thing, i am not at all familiar as to what i am looking for, nor where it might be located. would it be on the board itself? please help!!

    the burn splash is behind the control board. the control unit is at the top of the washer connected to the wash selector toggle.

That should be the motor control unit it has a fuse in it but will probably have to replace the whole board disconnect the wires and ohm the fuse

    just replace the burned part as for cost i don't know with out the model number look in the bottom of the washer and see if there is an electronic control there if there is it will need to be check too in not totally familiar with your brand most front loaders have a mcu motor control unit and a ccu central control unit mostly the wires run from the motor to the mcu then up to the ccu so both need to be inspected. your motors probley fine.a general rule of shorted circuits is they tend to burn where they occur

My Creda simplicity 1000 washing machine wasn't draining or spinning now there's no power light coming on and does nothing when i turn it on is it un repairable

It could be a lot of different things. Maybe the timer. If you know someone who has a volt meter and knows how to use it. Find you machine with a Google search, look for trouble shoot washing machine timer. That's the way I would do it. You want to look for a open in the electrical system *{the switch} like a broken wire inside the switch. Make sure to unplug the machine first. You won't need the power on for the first tests. A volt meter can be purchased for under $10. and any home repair store or box store.

Creda eco washing machine won't spin

It sounds like it needs new carbons fitting in the motor.
It is a fairly straightforward repair.
Remove the top cover, screws at rear, and slide top cover off towards the rear.
The motor is located at the top right right rear, you will see the drive belt.
Slacken the bolt that holds the motor, and push the motor down towards the top of the drum.
You will see the 2 brush holders, they will be either black or white, pull the wires off the holder terminals, and depress the plastic`lug that holds the brushes in place, slide the brushes out of the motor.
fit new genuine Hotpoint carbons, and follow instructions on packaging. Push the leads back on to the carbon terminals.
Tighten up motor, and make sure the belt is reasonably tight.
Job done.
Test on final spin before you refit top cover.
Plz rate my solution.

Creda IWD12 makes noise when spinning but still works ok

Either a concrete balance weight is loose or broken, or the main drum bearings are worn. Spin the drum by hand, and if it feels noisy or rough, then it is the main drum bearings that have failed.
