How to change the brushes

The motor is situated rear centre of the machine. It's best to remove it, either tip it back, ensuring it's stable and supported or remove back panel for access. Brushes are located on either side of the motor.

Hi, my hotpoint aquarius extra washing machine wma34 drum has stopped turning it is 7 years old. there is power and the water is still going in and draining out but it will not turn. please help.thankyou.

Remove the lower back cover, check to see if the belt is o/k.
If belt o/k,then remove the motor and check the brushes in motor..
If less than 3 or 4 mm long, then they need to be replaced.
Hope this helps .

How do you change brushes on a hotpoint aquarius washing machine

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WF740. This does have brushes. Tilt the washing machine backwards & look underneath. The brushes can be seen on the motor housing, they are secured by two screws each.

How can i remove the carbon brushes to check if they need renewed.I have a Hotpoint Aquarious model no WMA34. Much appreciated Chris

you will need to remove the motor, Isolate the supply by unplugging the machine, remove the rear panel, slacken the motor fixing bolts, remove the drum belt, now remove the motor bolts and drop out the motor, un-plug the motor connections.
The brushes are at the rear usually housed in plastic one on each side, disconnect the single wire and carefully remove the housing (2 torx screws), taking care not to break or loose the brush as it is spring loaded,a typical new brush will protrude 30-40mm from the housing a worn brush will be much shorter 8-15mm and just make contact with the motor commutator. replace if necessary, check the comm for wear, refit in the reverse order.

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA46 front loader

I 've had this problem a few times with these machines.

Some solutions that have worked for me are.

1 change the motor.
2 change the wiring loom
3 change the board.

The most common one is the motor even when the it has decent brushes the motor just will not pick up speed on the spin cycle.

hope this helps.
