indesit washing machine drum not turning

Postby monica2k » Thu Oct 18, 2007 8:49 pm

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?

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.
