Question about Frigidaire FWT449

Frigidaire Gallery FWT449GFS1 washing machine

I merely need to find a carbon brush for the motor. I replaced the control board (again, third one, ugh) and the machine ran only 4 loads. I pulled the brushes and one is completely worn down. I called everyone I could think of, including the manufacturer and they only want to sell me a new motor. Any suggests, before I pull a brush off off one of my vehicle's altenators and rig it to fit;)? Same problem.Pulled motor and brushes are bad but can't find anyone who sells these

Call a few hardware store....I think I found my brushes at True Value. Then take the brushes/case & spring to a lawn mower etc. repair shop...they charge you a few bucks to get the right angle and length with the spring and case. Hope it helps!

Bosch washing machine model WFF1401GB/01, 10 years old, motor was replaced 5 years ago (so motor is 5 years old now). Drum has stopped rotating, pump etc all OK. Carbon brushes replaced, drum did work for...

Check the motor control board for dry joints, poor contact, signs of excessive heat around plugs/pins
I would try new brushes again or thoroughly inspect whether they are contacting the commutator.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

The internal brush can be used to replace brush in similar holder on certain Electrolux, Frigidaire, and Kenmore washers (at least motor # 131276200).
