Hi,

This washer has been working fine. But now it fills and the drum begins to turn then after a few seconds just as it is getting going it cuts out. The machine just stops. There is no error code displayed.

Any thoughts or advice?

Many thanks

John

Hi, I have the 9kg version of this machine. over the last couple of weeks it's been doing exactly the same thing, but fairly randomly.... now it does it 90% of the time. Looking for cure as well... normally I'd fix things like this myself, but I'm getting to the point where I'm almost admitting defeat!! :-(

Had a look for you both on Partmaster and your model is listed; that`s good!
Ok, well I`m guessing, by the picture of the motor on Partmaster, that it is a brush motor, and I`m also guessing that the brushes or one brush has worn out- your best bet is to take off the motor and check both brushes because I have had 1 brush wear out twice as fast as t`other! There are no motor brushes listed as seperate parts ( typical! ) BUT I do kinda recognise that they are fitted with ce set style motor brushes and if they are be careful because some carbon ends are to the left and some point to the right so if worn out try to get a good picture of what your buying. I myself wouldn`t worry too much about brush hardness your just trying to get the thing to work ok. There appear to be two versions to this machine 1 ending in EU ( which is the one I`m on about and t`other ends in LP of which there was no picture on P/master so I`m guessing that is a brush motor too or could be not a UK model???
The logic behind my thinking is that most modern machines wire the whole or in part circuit through the motor, if the brushes are worn out you might just get it to work for a few turns on the brush dust before it all goes t*ts up.
