Asko W600 Washing Machine

Belts are fine but I have not pulled the motor yet (thinking it was the timer and because it does not seem that the motor even gets turned on at all). What other clues could I provide to help diagnose this problem?

Verify the motor wiring harness is fully plugged in and all the wires are making contact.

Thanks kindly for your insights. I will check the brushes tonight and follow up.

I pulled the motor and it looks like a brush replacement could be promising. I checked the brush set you pointed me to and just before ordering I asked the Repair Clinic person to confirm that the brush would work in the Emerson MCA 61/64-148/AC18 motor I have in my Asko and said they do not stock Emerson parts. Are the parts you noted valid replacement? Thanks tons!

By 'valid' I meant 'do they work with the Emerson motor that came with my Asko W600'? In the not too distant past I ordered some tires from TireRack.com and I asked them if the tires would for sure fit my car. They said those are the only size that fits my car. Turns out that when I brought them in to be mounted there were actually two sizes that came with my car and the ones I got were wrong. Cost me $150 to ship the tires back so I am bit paranoid. Will try these brushes and see how they work.

Thanks much. Already ordered two new brushes. Crossing my fingers that this will work as my wife is cross at me for taking so long because I am stubborn and want to do it myself.

Turns out the brushes were the problem. The set I received was not quite right which required a file and a bit of other work to make them fit, but they work. They are somewhat noisy right now but I am guessing that will improve once the brushes get seated.
