Bosch Washer WFK2401UC/01 Does not spin. Replaced Power cir. Bd. Turned on started right up. completed cycle. Went to wash this morning Drum will not spin

Sometimes the brushes on the motor get worn and they cause motor to act intermittently. I changed my brushes and this corrected the problem of not washing or spinning.

Bosch logixx f:43code E-Nr. WAS32741AU/20 FD 8901 200134

F:43 meant motor error. We have electronics engineers as father-in-law (lucky). We checked motor - all good. Replaced worn brushes (cheap replacement). Still f:43 flashing after reset. Replaced PCB (Power Control board) with one that we ordered from Bosch factory and installed. Working like new. New brushes make light buzz which is normal.

Hi i just want to check to see if belt is ok, but dont know where to look, i have a drum wont turn

Its probably your motor carbon brushes. If the machine electricals work OK and it pumps water in and out then the carbon brushes have just worn out on the motor. I had the same problem with my Bosch front loader. Easy fix and you can get help visually on youtube. If you are looking for the belt to see if it has come off, undo the screws that hold the plate on the back of the washing machine to access and sight the belt. Also this will give you access to the motor if you need to change the motor carbon brushes. Hope this helps Sue

I have removed the motor from the washing machine but cannot see how to release the brushes. Have changed brushes on other machines before but struggling a little here

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 15:55 Sun afternoon.

Our Bosch behaved intermittently then would not run at all JUST before xmas and visitors!. I removed the motor and could see that the brushes were worn. I actually could not see how they could easily be removed- really solid bit of kit.
Went on a web site (cannot remember which one) and the advice was that if you (are able to) change the brushes they will not last for very long- a few months was the experience. As you probably are aware they do not necessarily bed in very well, that is unless you go to the extent of sorting the commutator out first.
Our Bosch is 15-20 years old- good machine and our new motor should last another 15-20 (which is more than we probably will!). Admittedly it did cost £250 but VERY easy to change-took minutes- and I changed the belt at the same time.
So- it might be false economy ;-0(

Good luck,

John C

Drum not working on bosch washing machine

I would say that the brushes want replacing in the motor, access to the motor is by removing the rear panel, remove the belt, and undo screws securing motor, remove motor, brushes are located at rear end of motor.
Please rate my solution.

Possibly worn brushes in motor.
Remove rear panel, remove belt, remove motor connector plug, inscrew 2 screws that secure the motor.
Lever motor back with a screwdriver, keeping hold of it as you do.
You will see the brushes at the terminal end of the motor.
If they are less than 4-5mm, they need to be replaced.
Refit motor and belt and motor plug. Test on spin
Plz rate my solution.

Motor not running.

if your brushes are only 1/4" long, I would replace them. The symptoms sounds like worn brushes.
