Hi there.

This is the first time I've paid for a forum membership, however I consider it money very well spent. My $5 payment saved me $370.00.

I have an Asko washer model 10505, and the drum had stopped spinning. I pulled the motor, and was given a price of 317 to replace it. By sheer dumb luck, when I was looking for the voltage of the motor on line, I stumbled into this exact thread.

And, of course, it was the brushes that were the problem.

However, in my case,  when I pulled the brushes off (after almost ordering a new pair) I noticed one was much shorter then the other. So I pulled on the shorter one, which is when I discovered that the brushes are spring loaded (duh) and that the short one had bound up and wasn't releasing out of its holder.

To make a long story longer, I worked it for a few minutes until it moved freely, reinstalled both brushes and voila! the motor worked just fine.

 

Thanks for this website, and all the great information. Keep up the great work.
