I have a Bosch WFL 1200 front load washing machine. I need to replace the brushes on the motor. This model only has an "oval" shaped panel at the back. The side and back panels are all one piece and c


ALWAYS disconnect electrics....You need to access the motor from the bottom of machine.as it is a pig to work on if you try to replace the bushes whilst in situ...what I do is empty the machines residual water from drain tube bottom front then remove back.... undo belt .... Then lean the machine at 45degrees to one side and undo the two retaining bolts on the pulley side .the whole motor will slide toward rear of machine but uncouple the electrics block first then remove motor.the brushes are spring loaded and the brass clip slides one way to release?there are plenty of YouTube tutorials on bosch washing machines that show brush replacement.good luck.

Trying to organise changing brushes in Tricity Bendix AW 1400. I'm in Scotland, daughter and machine in England! Does top or back come off machine to allow access and is motor fairly accessible for...


Washing machine motors are usually induction motors and do not have brushes? Anyway, the back comes off and that normally gives access to the screws that hold the top on, but the motor is normally located at the bottom of the machine.

My brushes on my aquarius wma54 need replacing,where is the motor and how do i change the brushes.what type of motor is it


The motor is located at the bottom rear of the washer.
Remove lower rear panel, unplug lead into motor,, remove earth wire.
Remove 2 bolts holding motor to drum, lever motor away from you to remove.
Brushes are located at the end furthest away from the pulley.
There has been more than 1 type of motor fitted to this model, so until you remove the motor, you will not know which brushes you need.

Hotpoint ultima wma76 stopped spinning is the motor /brushes in top or bottom of casing had other hotpoints and the brushes seem to go evry 5 yrs or so? are they as easy to change as the older models?


it is as easy as the older modles but the motor is at the bottom and you have to take out the motor to replace the carbon brushes hope this helped.

Changing the brushes on a beko washing machine


Its been a while since I changed beko but here goes.......... Put the machine on its side (soapbox side down, This prevents excess water from the soapbox dribbling into the PCB and creating a further problem). There is an opening at the bottom of the machine in which you will see the motor. On each side of the motor will be the brushes each with a connecting spay-tag, gently take of the spay tag with long nose pliers (not grabbing the wire) and change the brush. VERY IMPORTANT.....each brush is angled and it is important you replace the correct brush eg. left hand brush to left hand etc. or else when you goto wash the next time you will simply hear a bang and have to price a new motor. I highly recommend when you take each brush off do it slowly noting its angle and replace the new one at the same angle. Wfen done replace the spay tag. I am presuming you know to do this when the machine is fully powered off and plugged out. Happy Fixing.

Washing machine not spinning


Its a pain on this model but heres how. First remove plate at back of machine. Remove belt and two bolts holding motor (13mm).Unplug motor and remove. brushes are at back end of motor in plastic housings. after refitting motor replacing belt is where the fun begins. Put bottom end on first and feed round pulley. ouch

Washing machine problem


it could be that the carbon brushes need changing on the motor. you can drain the machine if there is water in it by disconnecting the outflow pipe from the u-bend under the sink and lowering it into a bucket. This will empty any water in the machine (most of it any way), at the same time you can check for blockages in the outflow pipe while it is disconnected. If the machine is at least five years old then the carbon brushes are easy enough to change yourself, they are seated each side of the motor which will be on top of the machine. Simply carfully disconnect the electric cables on each carbon brush, gently slide them out and replace them by carefully sliding the new ones back into place and then connecting the electric cables again. The carbon brushes for hotpoints were universal for the older models 5 years old or more, but the newer version have cleverly put the motors on the bottom and are hard if not impossible to get to. You will then need to call out an engineer. Always make sure that you disconnet from the mains before touching anything within the machine, and if you are not confident in what you are doing the don't do it, call an engineer.
