Samsung ww90t4540ax/eu machine won't spin

Recommended Posts


I have a Samsung washing machine and yesterday it decided it no longer wants to run a cycle.

It sounds like it's trying to get going but makes a small almost straining noise and runs a sequence again. It does this on loop until I turn it off and the mains.

I tried running diagnostic but I just get -: as a display. I'm guessing I'm doing something wrong here? I turn the machine off, and turn it back on again holding whilst the third and fourth button from left down. 

When I try and turn the drum it has resistance and almost jitters as I turn it. However, if I disconnect the motor from the PCB the drum and motor turn smoothly again. Plug the connector back into the motor, and I get resistance again. Even with mains power turned off.

Any help or guidance on this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. Is the tension created by the belt causing the motor or drum to catch on something? Is there any play in the shaft of either?
