SOURCE: Where are the brushes?

easiest way is to remove the motor - just held in by simple bolts. disconnect the electrical plug and socket wiring to the motor of course.

SOURCE: brush relacement in bosch wfl2450 washing machine.

yes the brushes do have to go in a particular direction.
imagine that the flat surface of the brush's angled end has to make full contact with the edge of the circular commutator down inside. Once you've got one brush done, the other one is inserted with its end situated in the opposite way. Like so, sort of: ----\ O \---- !!!!
hope that makes sense

SOURCE: HI. I have a bosch wfo2466 washing machine and

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.

My washing machine is not spining


It is likely that the Carbon Brushes of your Bosch washing machine need replacement. Get them from your nearest Bosch Spares stockist (P/N: 154740) Replace these on the motor armature, and it will be alright again. To be certain that it is indeed the Carbon brushes, open your washing machine and look on the motor (opposite side of the pulley) There has to be 2 grayish chalk type brushes running on a copper armature, these brushes have a lifetime of about 4 - 6 years before being diminished.

Hope this helps

Washing machine drum doesn't turn or spin


Hi. I have just had the same fault, and as described elsewhere, the solution was to replace the motor brushes. I would say this took 1/2 - 3/4 hour to remove brushes and same to replace.
How:
1.DISCONNECTED ELECTRICITY SUPPLY
2. Disconnected water
3. Removed the 1 screw from back panel, removed panel to get access to remove belt.
4. Lay washer on it's side (2 people recommended)
5. From underneath machine, unscrewed 2 bolts on the motor (back of the machine)
6. Holding the motor so it did not fall and get damaged, carefully tapped end of motor to unmount it from holding pegs (slides towards back of machine)
7. Noted how the plastic cover fixed to motor, then snipped tie wrap holding it to motor.
8. Unplugged connector and earth connector.
9. Carefully removed connector on each brush.
10. AS THE BRUSH WAS SLOWLY WITHDRAWN, checked the orientation of the bevelled edge of the brush relative to the motor so the new one was fitted correctly (the end of the brush is angled so it sits flat against the motors commutator)
11. Replaced brushes and refitted in reverse order.
