Just a brief question although I suspect I know the answer. My indesit 1263W will not turn its drum. I have run simple check of all the other items within the unit, solenoids etc and found no fault so I am guessing its either a motor or command / timer fault. I have removed the 6 point connection to the motor and I have a supply of 50 volts on several pins on the start of spin cycle I have then checked that a voltage again around 50 volts is down to the brushes, I am guessing this is an easy/slow start for the motor. I have checked the brushes and frankly surprised myself at how much life there is left in them. Any idea of cost of possible parts because I'm already being bothered for a washer dryer "seeing as the old ones dud!". Thanks in advance.

It's important to point out that washing machine engineers do not test connections for voltage readings. This would involve fault finding while the washing machine is plugged in and running which is dangerous. All fault finding should be carried out with the washing machine disconnected from the mains supply and using a simple continuity tester.

Old Indesit washing machines, with simple modules and a separate pprogramme timer often suffer from printed circuit connection problems on the base of the module. Take off the module at the side of the motor and examine the printed circuit behind the connector plug at the bottom of it. It's common on these machines for one of the printed circuit strips to burn out there.

If you can't see anything wrong with it, there's not much else you can do. It could well be a faulty module but you'd have to risk wasting the money if it didn't cure it as no one guarantees these parts when sold to the public.

Since answering this question I've written a help article on this problem - drum not turning - not spinning
