Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

Can you tell me if the machine agitates in a wash cycle at all?

Can you also tell me the product number which is on the label in the door recess and lastly, the age?

Hi Martin

Sorry the product number got crossed out. Can you repost it but put the letter A directly in front, so it will look like


Are you able to pull the machine out and do you have some tools or are you looking for someone to repair this for you?

A914780508 have pulled machine out taken of top and checked drive belt is still attached have tools just need to know if it is a diy job can it be cost efficient to repair and what you think is wrong

Hi Martin
Thats great, thanks

I would suspect the motor first.

With power disconnected
Remove the wiring harness to the motor
Remove retaining bolts and get motor on table
Remove the carbon brushes
These have a tendancy to wear on these motors and will give excatly these symptoms
If they are chipped, worn or damaged you should replace them and refit motor and test

If you need a link to the carbons or more help, please just ask.
In the meantime,
