Beko Wm6133W Motor Broken

4 posts in this topic

Hello there..
I have a Beko washing machine WM6133W.
Recently, the motor started to change speed every 3 seconds or so. I thought it was a tacho coil that was broken but I found out that it is a ring attached to rotor shaft (where the tacho is reading the speed of rotor). It seems it is made of plastic (brown colour) and it is cracked in half. As it was attached to rotor I'm just wondering if it's possible to buy it as a spare part. Any suggestions?

Photos attached.
Thanks. Daniel

Sadly, and outrageously, many if not most manufacturers only want to sell a complete motor and no parts are available (other than carbon brushes). Try this link and if you can't find a spare part contact them to see if they can find out if one is available or not - Spare parts

Well, finally I found out that the tacho magnet is machine pressed onto the armature and therefore is only supplied with the motor.

Even if it would be available as a spare, honestly it would be very difficult to replace. I've tried to take the whole thing off - without success.

Anyway, thanks much for your advice. I really appreciate that. At least I know what to do.

It's an example of what I've been complaining about for many years. In an era when we are supposed to be seriously concerned about the environment and how many products are scrapped many years before they should be it's an outrage that these companies get away with it. Tacho magnets cost just a few pounds, and the clip that used to hold them in place cost next to nothing. Instead, most machines with this problem will be scrapped because it's too expensive to buy a complete motor.
