my Bosch classixx washing machine's drum has stopped rotating. It was making an unusual noise yesterday on spin & now won't rotate at all. It jumps through the cycle without doing anything, except fill & drain.

The Famous Forry :

Hi to you from David, 'The Famous Forry'

The Famous Forry :

Do you want to try and repair this yourself or do you just want a diagnosis?

Customer:

If it was relatively straightforward, I might try to fix it. I'm also trying to assess if it's worth repairing, or is the cost such that I'd be better buying a new machine.

The Famous Forry :

Cost of parts is under £15

The Famous Forry :

You would need to remove the main motor

Customer:

Would I require special tools, how hard is it to remove the main motor etc? Are you suggesting that a drive belt has come off?

The Famous Forry :

No the brushes will have worn out

The Famous Forry :

I think from memory the bolts are 13mm

The Famous Forry :

You would need a socket wrench and screw driver to remove the back panel. ISOLATE FIRST !

Customer:

How hard is it to source the parts? What could I expect to pay if I called a repairer?

The Famous Forry :

Parts are easily sourced on line with next day delivery.

The Famous Forry :

Repair man would chatge about £65 in total/ Ask the repair man how much to change motor brushes

The Famous Forry :

Get answer before committing to the repair

The Famous Forry :

Many offer free call out/ What area are you?

The Famous Forry :

I know some who do this in the midlands and stratford

Customer:

I'm in Glasgow.

The Famous Forry :

OK, You would have to use your directory and ask cost first.

Customer:

Thanks for your help.
