New Wave Auto Washer 1100 Can't Sustain Fast Spin


Recommended Posts

The chances are the motor is flashing and sparking causing the washing machine to abort. You can try replacing the carbon brushes if you like but it's possible that the armature is worn. If so it will do the same even with new brushes in. You could order new carbon brushes from online washing machine spares sites listed here if you require - Washing machine spares

The chances of the armature also been worn is dependent on the age and amount of washing it's done.

Hi. I did what you suggested and changed the brushes but it does still cut out on fast spin, particularly if the load is large. Rather strangely, sometimes, if you select fast spin only, as soon as the motor cuts out the machine starts to fill with water! Could this be the sparking corrupting the programme?

Many thanks.

Is the armature sparking badly when it goes onto fast spin? By sparking, I don't mean minute sparks, which are normal and acceptable, but flashes, or rings of sparks that run from one carbon brush to the other.

If it only cuts out and starts the lights flashing on the fast spin then it sounds like the armature is worn out. This is behaviour I've seen many times on the New Wave washing machines because of the bizarre way Hoove rmake carbon brushes for these models. Instead of having a smooth curved surface, they have a grooved service where they run against the armature. This makes them very difficult to bed in with any armature that's slightly worn.

On Hoover New wave washing machines you can replace the armature, and it used to be a viable job, but it's way beyond economic repair now due to the age of these machines.

As for the filling with water when it aborts. I've not seen that, and it's weird.

Hi again Andy,

The armature doesn't really spark that badly. I've seen it far worse on previous occasions when the brushes have needed replacing. Started looking at new machines yesterday and was rather taken by the Miele Premium 300. Haven't completely given up yet though.

Many thanks for your help.

These New Wave washing machines have a particularly sensitive electronics for detecting sparking at the brushes. Consiquently, they can abort when in reality the sparking isn't that bad and the motor would run OK. Maybe if given a chance, they would bed in nicely after a few washes and spins. There's nothing we can do about it, it's just these washing machines.

The Miele washing machine is indeed a very well made washing machine. Probably twice as well made as the Hoover ( Related: Miele washing machine review and other washing machine reviews - Washing machine reviews )
