When program selected ,water enters and leaves drum but the drum does not go through its cycle ,this makes an unusual noise.could this be worn carbon bushes ?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It does sound as if the motor requires replacement. It is not uncommon to find that the brushes are worn sufficiently for them to not make perfect contact with the commutator.

Now, a word or two of advice from this old hand- it might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit cleanly on the commutator (like the worn ones!), often causing excessive sparking and excessive wear on BOTH. Alternately a new motor! I changed the motor on our 19+ year-old Bosch at a cost of GBP250 ;-0(
The choice of course is entirely up to you- but do not forget that it is not an uncommon fault, especially if the washer is not exactly new. Others I have given this advice to have chosen new brushes and I don't blame them!
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I know that it's not exactly what you were hoping to hear/see but what follows is my (pre-typed) advice to others about washer motors possibly failing. I will understand if you do not wish to score this.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It does sound as if the motor requires replacement unless it is the control board not powering the motor. You really need a service visit from whichever company you, or/and your neighbours would recomend to others ;-0(

My bosch classixx 1200 wont spin when on function but will spin by hand i have cleaned the pipes and checked the belt everything seems ok


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It does sound as if the motor requires replacement because it is struggling, particularly when called upon to run the spin cycle. It is not uncommon to find that the brushes are worn sufficiently for them to not make perfect contact with the commutator at the higher speeds- bouncing and sparking. Now, a word or two of advice from this retired Englishman in SW France. It might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished.

Bosch Washing Machine model WFG2460 drum doesn't turn


There is no start capacitor on this washer if it has brushes in the motor, most likely the prob is due to worn brushes, to check them, do the following.
Remove rear panel, remove belt, remove motor plug.
Undo 2 screws securing motor, lever motor back with a screw driver or similar, keeping hold of motor and remove motor,.
You will find the brushes at the opp end to the motor pulley, replace if less than 1cm in length.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Changing the brushes when the motor is off


Remove belt, unscrew 2 bolts that hold the motor, unplug the motor connector, lever the motor back with a screwdriver. Check the motor brushes, if they are any shorter than 1 cm replace brushes.
