    No, the motor is the faulty part(said this,thats the bit that was smoking)) thats why I got a new motor,but as I stated the new motor has a 7 pin plug,mine only has a 6 pin was told that it would stil do,but it doesnt as on fitting the new motor does nothing!! so I need to know what the extra 7th pin is,does it need a extra live or a extra earth?? or is it just the wrong motor, and Ive wasted my money? does any one know where I can get a wiring diagram or a spare parts list to check the compatability of the new and old motor, PLEASE HELP, Thanks.

  • fox.john Nov 18, 2008

    No service centre near me,dont know where/how to get tec advise,has anyone got the bosch web site address,Thanks.

  • fox.john Nov 18, 2008

    No, fitted new brushes,fault was just the just the same,( seemed as if it was going to be ok, but as the motor revs started to increase the motor started to cut out and would not build up the revs, then after 10 secs or so the motor started to smoke, so stoped it. Thats why I bought another motor, but it looks like its the wrong one (after being told by the bloke that it was interchangeable with mine).I have even stripped both the motors right down,my old one looks OK, but have no means of testing the com/armerture,being clever I thought I would just swop over the armertures,but on trying, found the new one to be about 6mm longer, so I thought I would swop the body too but the windings have a extra winding on each side (hence the 7th pin)so I cannot swap any parts from the new motor into the old one(back to square one!)on checking,even though the motors are same in overall lenth the new motor is about 6mm longer in the wndings and armerture.So I need to see if I can wire this new motor to work in mine,the bloke that sold it me said the extra pin was for a faster spin speed than mine and would do,but he's wrong???, thanks, John.

    Service centre no help, need to find out what the 7th pin does, need a wiring diagram for both motors to compare,but dont know were to get one, can anyone point me to a spare part list to see what this new motor fits and to see if I can make it do, PLEASE HELP, Many Thanks, John.

As it has produced smoke then something is burnt inside you need to contact a technicial to determine the correct part blow and get it replaced.

The seven pin motor you bought will not work with your six pin connection, nor can the parts be swapped out from each other, as they are made for different models. You will have to find a six pin motor that is compatible with your connection to make it work properly.

You bought a replacement motor for the wrong model, your Motor control unit has a 6 pin plug, you cannot just adapt the wrong one.

Click here, insert model number and buy the right replacement.

Sounds to me like the "bushes" need replacing in the motor itself, these are black strips of carbon that are spring loaded, they look a bit like black eraser and there are usualy 2 of them ( 1 at each side of the motor )
installing these can be a little tedious but will save you money on getting an engineer out to do what seems like just a 10 minute job

hope this helps

best regards

Mr John,

There is a difference in 6 pin and 7 pin motor. The 6 and 7 pin specifies a specific voltage that a certain electrical equipment accept.

If u try to use 7 pin instead of 6 pin motor, that would not work and even if we try hard to use that, it might choke ur electrical equipment like washing machine.


In this case we can look diff. ways of repairing ur old motor and if ur new motor wld be replaced ( Thats perfect, i hope too ),.


Try thissimple way :-

Servicing the Motor

In most cases, motor malfunctions should be handled by a professional; do not try to fix the motor yourself. If the motor is a universal motor, however, you can change worn carbon brushes when sparking occurs, as detailed in the how to repair appliances article. To save the expense of a service call, remove the motor from the washer and take it to a professional service person, then reinstall the repaired or new motor yourself. To access the motor, remove the back panel of the washer. The motor is mounted on an adjustable bracket.

There is one other motor problem you can repair yourself. Washer motors usually have an overload protector clipped to the motor. When this component fails, the motor won't work. Before you take the motor in for service, test the protector with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect one electrical lead wire to the protector and clip one probe of the VOM to each protector terminal. The meter should read zero. If the needle jumps higher, the protector is faulty and should be replaced. Pry up the protector with a screwdriver and replace it with a new one made specifically for the motor or washer. Connect the new protector the same way the old one was connected.



If this wld wrk,its best.....unless

Try to read and implemnt this :-

I hope that wld wrk :)

U have to consult with the autorized bosch service centre if they are around you or you need to order a new motor with same specification.

If it's over filled it won't spin.

The fault is most likely either with the water level sensor or with the filling solenoid. Both are cheap parts but note the caveat of "most likely". If you buy and fit the parts with no improvement you cannot return them, but a Bosch repair agent can try them and remove them if they're not the cause. The worst case is a failed pcb, but repairing your machine will still be cheaper than replacing it. Barring occasional faults, Bosch washing machines last longer than average.

I would suggest that you remove the motor, and check the brushes for wear.
If they are less than 3 or 4mm long, then they need to be replaced.
Hope this helps.

You do not need to remove the end cap.Pull off the brush leads, and ease out the terminal ends of brushes with a pair of taper nose pliers..pull the old brushes out, take note of which way the shamfored end of the brushes are facing in the holder.
Push new brushes into holder and compress the springs as you are pushing them down, locate terminal ends into slots of brush holder.
This should help you with your problem.
Good luck.
Thankyou.

Remove the front lower panel, screws underneath. Be prepared for water, drain out from drain hose. Check filter for clogging, clean out. Sometimes when the load is unbalanced & the machine cannot adjust the load it stops. To avoid this make sure your wash is mixed with big and small clothes.
If this does not work remove the rear panel & check belt, should have half inch ‘give’. Still not good, remove belt, unscrew 2 bolts that hold the motor, unplug the motor connector, lever the motor back with a screwdriver. Check the motor brushes (at terminal end of motor), if they are any shorter than 1 cm replace brushes.
