The brushes are on the motor which is located at the rear of the machine sitting just under the wash unit.

You will need a 10mm spanner to remove the bolts holding the motor on. unclip the wiring to the motor and remove.

the carbon brushes are located on the rear of the motor - one on each side of the commutator,

you will need a philips screw driver to remove the brushes

My awm 5145/4 has stopped working! There is still power going to it but when you select a programme it does nothing,but it will drain,someone has suggested the brushes,where are these located on this...


Could well be the Carbon Motor brushes that are worn they last round 5 years hen need replaced..I lie under the machine to do this but you may find it simpler to remove the motor they are located at the side and are secured by two screws, parts cost around £25 per set.....

Water leak from front powder/conditioner drawer.


Completely remove the dispenser unit. look inside the recess you have just taken the dispenser drawer from and look up. You will find this is covered in muck. Clean it with an old toothbrush or something but do not use too mush pressure. This should solve your problem. If not then you will need to replace the dispenser unit completely

Changing brushes on whirlpool awm 8145/3. Washing machine stopped working and ''door open'' light keeps coming on and cycle stops. Cannot locate brushes to see if changing would help.


this door open light has nothing to do with the motor brushes its the door switch/s there are two of them try pushing your knee on the door if it starts working again change the switches and the brushes go into the motor?

I had the same problem tonight!! I opened the filter at the front and found one of my baby sons socks and 81 cents!
The machine is draining away perfectly now, but the floor got soaked when I opened it, so be prepared.
Hope this helps...
