Hi Overloading the washer wont stop it from spinning. As if it was overloaded all it would do is bang about as it spins. So as the drum isnt turning what you need to do is pull the washer out and remove the back panel.There you will see the belt on the back. Check this is still in place on the motor and pulley wheel as well. If thats fine then you need to remove the motor at the bottom of the drum.Then from there look at the back of the motor. There either side you will see the carbon brushes.Take them out and see if they have worn down to a few mm. If they have then you need to replace them and that should cure the fault from there. So check them out and see what you find. If you need anymore info just get back to me. Regards
