Customer Question
Hi Daniel. I'm having a...
Hi Daniel. I'm having a problem with my beko washing machine model wmb81241 lb. I have it on a 39min Eco cycle and it fills up with water but that's it. The digital timer is stuck on 37mins. It just sits there for about 10mins doing nothing then ends the wash and drains. Any ideas?

Hi

If you press and hold the start/pause button does it reset the cycle?

If so then set the washer going on a spin cycle and see if the pump runs and the drum turns on this and let me know.

I held the pause button on and it has set itself to a 90 degree wash. Is that right? Trying a spin cycle now but nothing seems to be happening.
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok that's not correct as if you hold the start/pause button is should reset the cycle not start a 90 degree wash.

But if you try a spin cycle but nothing is happening then has the washer drained the water out?

If yes but its not doing anything then its possibley worn carbon brushes in the motor.

What you need to do is pull the washer out and lean it backwards against a wall and have someone hold for you.

Then lie down and look under the washer.

There you will see the back of the motor.

There either side you will see the carbon brushes in the plastic holders. Remove these and check the carbon. If its worn down to about 5mm then they will need to be replaced.

Then retry it and fingers crossed that sorts it from there.

Try that and see what you find and let me know.

Hi Daniel. I managed to get what I think you were talking about off. Can you push the carbon in? Is it spring loaded? If so there's about 10mm showing.
UK Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

That's them they are spring loaded.

10 mm is a bit low still so they will need to be replaced. But try this and see what happens.

Pull the carbon out as far as it goes and refit both back into the motor and then retry it on a spin only and see if the drum starts to turn then. If it does and is crackling and sparking then it is worn carbon which will need replacing,
