If the drum tries to turn or judders, or the motor makes a crackling or grating noise when it turns the drum (without laundry in) it could be the carbon brushes in the motor if the motor is fitted with them. This fault could also be caused (very rarely) by a very slack drive belt), connection faults, the PCB or main parts in the motor. If the belt is on OK and you can't see anything wrong with connections at the motor plug or the carbon brushes I'd get an appliance engineer.


Carbon brushes diagnostics - do I need to fit new brushes?
