Hi all
Oneconcept DB005XXl spinner is not working.
The washer is functioning as normal.

Found an old flannel blocking the drain, as there was some water sat under the spinner. Water drained fine afer removal.

The spinner is direct drive (not belt driven) and the lid switch is functioning correctly.
There is a small deposit of soot under motor but appears to be around rubber spring mounts, ofwhich one has split but are not overly perished.

Also adjusted brake shoe as cable had stretched.

Timer clicks as usual when rotated.

Any diagnosis would be much appreciated,
Many thank

Never been to one of these, and I expect none else on the site has either, so everything that follows is pure guess work.
Ok, so the lid swt works, the spin timer ticks. The only things I can think off as pointers are 1) there`s a broken wire 2) the spin motor is zapped 3) if it is capacitor run-cylinder shaped thing with electrical wires attached that go to the motor or 4) even though the timer seems to work 5 mins to stop internally it is broken. If (1) with the spin mounts dodgy it is a pretty good indication that maybe it is a broken wire perhaps internally within the motor or near the motor. If (3) I would`ve thought you would hear the motor hum and it get warm since it does nothing else which at least means it is getting power; a lot of Chinese capacitors are fairly poor/short lived, Qualtex chinese imported capacitors are an example.
Best I can do I`m afraid but I did have a brief scout about on the net for any spares but found none, zippo! as expected. If it is the capacitor ( if indeed it has one? ) you should be able to get one from this esteemed site that should be better quality, probably something like a 8uf but that is purely a guess, but your original one will have the uf printed on it. Remember that capacitors do store an electrical charge even after you`ve unplugged the machine providing of course it is receiving power itself. Do not do live testing unless you know what your doing, I haven`t lost one yet!! Let us know how you get on as it would be a shame to scrap it.....yet more plastic waste in the environment. Best of luck.

Hithere thanks for the reply, and will be getting back into having a look at it in the nexfewdays. Timer could be ranking higher again in fault list as, wash timer has a highèr tension when rotated and the faulty spinner is easily rotated but continues its usual clicking. Will let you all know what i find and thanks again for thereply

Does your washing machine stink?

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
