Hi David, it's George

Can you heaar clicking from the control panel at all when the motor should be operating?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes i can hear a click on off and the pump is running constant

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Before doing anything else, check the base of the washer for water.. Tilt the washer backwards to expel any water from the base..

Let me know what result you get so that we can then continue.

hi there. there is no water but this is a wahing machine is that ok

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Yes, I know it is a washing machine David.

Can you tell me what program it is in?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i have selected just a normal spin cycle. it pumps out and the motor never turns.

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Does the pump run for the full cycle?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

the spin cycle starts at 12 mins and pumps out perfect, but the motor never turns. the machine seems to complete the cycle and sounds an alarm to let you know it is complete.

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Then since the relays on the board are clicking as would be expected, I suggest that the problem lies within the motor itself..

Check the toc of the motor.. You'll find it in the field coils

will do but i will need to get back to you. thanks.

Ok David.. Chat soon

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

hi there. i have checked the motor and it is ok. i used a volt detector and there is no power getting to the motor. i took the module off and found a few damaged tracks at the connector terminal. i hammered flat some fuse wire and folded it over the edge and soldered them. seems to be ok now. good OLD bosch machines. can still fix them with a hammer.

the carbons had worn right down and may have overheated the tracks.
