I have an old (aprox 8 years) indesit wg1033t ecosense model . It was making a crackling noise for a few days sounded like it was coming from the dial and now the drum has stopped turning on any cycle including spin,although i can turn the drum around by hand so it is not jammed.Do you think it could be the brushes or would a faulty dial also cause this?

Does your washing machine smell bad?

Buy Affresh washing machine cleaner here to stop bad smells from your washing machine
If your washing machine stinks, smells bad or emits strange odours it is most likely to be caused by bacteria build up in the washer. To clean this we recommend using Affresh that you can buy here to clean out the bacteria. And for more detailed advice on washing machine odour you can read our article all about smelly washing machines here

Almost certainly the carbon brushes worn out - the "crackling" is a bit of a give away..........

Have a look here:

You should find suitable replacements there.

Don't keep using the machine until you resolve this - you risk blowing the motor.

Power off, if investigating.

Which bit of "Unplug it" is causing the problem?

If it's still turning at the moment, it's fine - just don't keep on using it until you've checked out or replaced the brushes.
