  • Hoover Performa AC121 Washing Machine won't spin or agitate

    I have a Hoover Performa AC121 washing machine that does not agitate or spin. The pump appears to be working fine and my best guess is that it's the brushes. Can anyone provide any help this problem?

    Thanks

    99% certain that's your problem. The motor will need to come out to check?

    PULL THE PLUG COMPLETELY BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIRS OR INSPECTION :zap:

      Hi Martin,

      Thanks for the reply - I flipped the machine and removed the housings containing the brushes. carbon was past the minimum required to make contact to the motor. I ordered some on-line, popped them in and machine now working. Easy job really.

      Cheers

        When you say you flipped the machine, do you mean you stood it on it's lid? If so, this is bad practice and very likely to damage parts of the machine. I would only do this if I had first removed hoses to drain every drop of residual water and re-fitted the original transit screws. On balance, it's easier to just take the back off and remove the motor.
