Customer Question

Hi I have a Hotpoint WMFG 631 and am getting an F02 code.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.
Customer: Have looked underneath and all wires appear to be fine and connected.
JA: Is there anything else the Appliance Technician should be aware of?
Customer: Drum rotates freely by hand
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Appliance Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

Check/change the brushes in the motor

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thanks. Do you have a 'how to' video or some directions for someone who has not done that before? Cheers

Open the rear panel of the appliance, remove the motor wiring (taking note of positions), remove the motor and unscrew the brush-holders from the rear side.

Check the length of the carbons is greater than 10mm.

Check the carbons are moving freely in the holder.
