Hi, I'm Daniel and I'll be helping you today I've been repairing white goods for 20+ yrs. and currently work for a well-know manufacturer.

Is it draining the water out?

Will the drum turn at all during the wash or spin?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No it fills and drains and in self test mode it won't spin

Ok if it fill and drains but just doesnt turn the drum then you need to check the carbon brushes in the motor.

Pull the washer out and lean it backwwards against a wall and get someone to hold for you.

Then lie down and look under the washer there you will see the back of the motor. Either side there you will see the carbon brushes. Take them out and see if they have worn down. If so then you need to replace them and then retry the washer and fingers crossed that will get it up and running again.

Check them and see what you find and let me know.
