i got me a hoover am110 washing machine. I seen some of the other post
so i know what i got to look forward to, but they arnt my fault. What i
happening, is that the machine works fine, until it goes onto a fas
spin. when it builds up for a fast spin, everything is fine and then a
it goes for the big push, it blows the electrics in the house. I hav
replaced the brushes in the mnotor, as i noticed that there wa
evidence of "arcing" from the brass surrounds of the carbon brushes
and figured this was probably hitting the armature and doing no good
Sadly this has not solved the problem. So folks, what is my next move
Im not a electrician by trade, but have some electrical knowleg
through my work. Is there anything else it could be that i could tes
with a multimeter or is it off to the repair shop?
any help or suggestions would be appreciated as we are getting nea
christmas and so money isnt as free flowing as it could be.....
many many thanks

That what was the case with mine.
I even ripped the motor apart to try and find it. Buried in the windings...
Probably a chafed through inuslation on the stator.
Get a new motor if it shows ANY resistance windings to case...
if it helps i have additional information, the electric trips when th
machine is running through a cycle and gets to the spin. If however,
turn the machine off, and then select the fast spin and turn th
machine on, it runs through the spin. This makes me think that perhap
the wash selector is giving up the ghost, or is it possible that ther
is a capacitor of some kind that is not charging up correctly during
wash cycle, but does however charge when the spin is selecte
seperatley, or am i just grasping at straws and should i admit defea
and let a propper washing machine fixing man have a look at it
