Question about Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 Front Load Washer

Washer won't spin.

Need to replace carbon brushes. How do you replace the brushes? I can take the motor out but can't take the brushes out. When I push and pull the old brushes, the washer will spin, then a few days later it won't.

From Howtomendit: key point I missed was that you need to pull the motor apart after you have taken it out of the machine before you can get access to the screws holding the brushes in. (ie: unscrew the four bolts). Not as difficult or scary as it looked!

please read thro first.
first unplug it, pull it out so you have some work space, take off back plate, remove belt undo (should be white rectangle plastic block with wire attached), remove green+yellow wire undo bolts which hold motor to drum, gently ease out motor (please be aware of sharp edges), run screwdriver down 1 side of motor so you put it back together same way you took it apart, unscrew 4 bolts that hold motor together take top bit of dont loose spacer ring, place to 1 side, remove middle comutator the end the brushes are touching will need a proper clean wd40 maybe wipe clean with cloth so its not dull let dry, undo carbon brushes, take plate off also clean then clean what they were attached to when dry replace in reverse order gently (with new brushes) then replace back on machine plug back in and test by running spin program found at bottom of dail if i have my mod/num right let it get to full spin watch motor if it sparks an looks like blackpool illuminations motors no good will need new 1 sorry.

GE washer wont agitate or spin ?


This could be because the carbon brushes in your motor are worn down. One will need to check the motor to be sure.

The carbon brushes apply electricity to the motor via a split ring comutator.
Over a while the carbon dust can create a short circuit. The motor needs to be looked at and cleaned. Possibly may need to replace the brushes.

Take care!

Whirlpool washer model #lsr5132hq1- drum turns but agitator doesnt on second spin cycle until you give it a spin by hand. ok on first spin cycle


May be the motor carbon brushes are worn. This is usually a cheap repair 10 or 20 pounds if u can do it yourself , but disconnect from mains , take out motor , remove , replace carbon brushes, ( some motors don't have them) you can understand what I mean, my advice is estimate from local dealer but dont get conned with new motor ( I think its carbon brushes only) .

Washing machine not washing or spinning


More than likely worn brushes in motor
Remove top cover, and slacken motor bolts holding motor at top right of washer. slide out carbon brush holders in motor, and replace if less than 3 or 4mm long.
This should solve the problem.

Need to replace carbon brushes on Indesit Omega 1200


The brushes are located inside the motor. Remove rear panel of washer, remove drive belt, from motor and drum, unplug the motor, undo screws that secure motor, and remove motor.
At the opposite end to the motor pulley, you will find the brushes located, undo 2 screws that secure the brushes, remove and replace brushes.
I would also check the pump filter, which should be located behind a removable panel at bottom of washer, unscrew anti-clockwise, remove and clean.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.
