Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, welcome to Just answer
How old is it ?
and does any of the lights blink of the front ?
It is 9 years old, the panel light is on and nothing is flashing or blinking
can you please unplug it and then plug it back after 3 minutes
simultaneously press and hold the START button
let me know if this makes a difference
OK, done that. Panel lights up as before, slight buzzing from inside the machine but no action at all.
Can you test the motor with a multimeter ?
I do have a multimeter, but probably not the expertise. If it is likely that the motor's gone I guess we will look to replace the machine.
well yes however, if you want you can try replacing motor brushes first...those will just cost £8 however...new motor will cost around £170
Belt is intact...control board looks fine and nothing is clogged anywhere so it is the motor
Does is sound like motor failure to you? There were no changes to the normal sounds of operation as far as we could hear just before it stopped, and the power supply has not been tripped.
Yes everything else seems to be working fine...you can try to clean the drain hose and pump as well
We had a new drain pump recently, so I think that just about wraps it up. Thanks for your advice.
