Thanks for that....do you hear any different kind of noises while it is spinning ?

JACUSTOMER-6p5zh8bj- :

During the spin cycle I think it try's to go to fast spin by the slight change in the noise (nothing significant) and nothing untoward

OK, the problem is with the brushes that need replacement

Hi Kevin,



FYI changing out the brushes hasn't fixed the problem the m/c still doesn't get up to full spin i.e. 1400 rpm which means the washing is wetter than it used to be when the cycle is completed.


Regards,

John

OK, have you already checked the Drain pump and was the working fine.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Not Physically, but I can hear it draining and see it at the external drain, but I will check again.

Thanks

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 2 years ago.
OK please check and let me know... Thanks
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Checked all weekend and the m/c is draining ok.

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 2 years ago.
OK, if it drains fine then take the top off and check the pressure switch located towards the right...clean the thin hose attached to it and blow through it to make sure it is fine...if this hose is blocked the control wont receive a signal from the pressure system and so wont perform fast spin... please let me know how it goes.

Hi Kevin,


 


Not had chance to try this yet, its a task to get the m/c out esp with kids running around.

John
