Hi, Im Daniel and welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your washer, Hopefully i can help you on this.

You may get an offer for a phone request, Now im afraid i dont do them as i only do the online chat so if you dont want the phone request then just ignore it

If the washer has stopped spinning then it may be down to worn carbon brushes in the motor as when they wear it stops the drum from turning.

To check this you need to pull washer out and turn the power off.

Remove the rear panel and there you will see the motor at the bottom of the drum.

Remove the motor and then at the back of the motor either side are the carbon brushes.

Remove these and see if they have worn. If they are only a few mm then they have worn.

Replace the carbon brushes and then see how it goes from there.#

So check them if you can and see what you find from there.

Regards
