Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

Please tell me its complete model number and how old is your washer ?

Customer:

Hotpoint WMAL621 Aquarius and its 3 yrs old

Customer:

Ok what is happening? No response

KevinWhiteJA :

Thanks

KevinWhiteJA :

have you tried to clean the drain pump/hose ?

Customer:

Hi Kevin, no, because Machine will run ok with no items inside, it only tries to turn (and fails) when it has washing inside

Customer:

Its almost as if motor does not have enough power to turn it

KevinWhiteJA :

OK, usually cleaning the drain pump will solve the problem

KevinWhiteJA :

if it does not then it is time to replace the carbon brushes in the motor

KevinWhiteJA :

it will cost around £20 and you can buy it from here

Customer:

Ok I will try that, I reckon its a brush problem, it has all the symptoms, thank you very much
