Hi

.

Ok if you set washer to a spin only will the pump run and will the drum spin?

Hi, sorry for delay,


 


When I set it to spin only, it has the same behaviour as setting any other option, which is that it it makes a continuous noise for about 5 mins (possibly attempting to run the pump) but the drum does not spin. During that time the door cannot be opened. After the 5 mins, the noise stops, and a short time later the door can again be opened.

Hi

.

Ok what this may be is worn carbon brushes in the motor.

.

What you need to do is remove the motor and at the back either side are the carbon brushes. Take them out and inspect them.

.

If they have worn down then they will need to be replaced.

.

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

.

Regards
