you seem to know what your doing. yes you do have to remove the motor in order to remove those carbon brushes, while your at it, you can also adjust the screwing/bearings of the bolts to hinder the machine from moving a lot.

SOURCE: How to cahnge carbon brushes

The brushes usually "come complete with brush-holders", which is a way of selling you something extra that you don't need. Easiest way is to disconnect the machine from the power and the water, turn it onto its front on an old cardboard box and remove the motor from its mountings on the washer. You can usually get acces to one of the brushes really easily and the other is guaranteed to be a real pig, so keep it simple. The brush-holders are usually fastened to the motor casing with either self-tapping screws or small bolts.

I buy my brushes from Ebay sellers and always send them a digital photo of the old brush together with the make and serial number off the motor itself, just to be sure. Brushes can look similar and be that silly millimetre too short, or long, or wide.

Did that answer the question? If not, add a comment and I'll expand further as necessary. Cheers, D.

Error E30 flashing on washing machine


What brand. Ih it is a hotpoint. I found this on the net from a washer help site in the uk

Error 30 (on Hotpoint) just means the motor isn't working. Several things, including the power module, can cause this. The most common cause though is worn carbon brushes. There is also a 7.5 amp fuse on or near the power module, which can blow. This fuse is on the motor circuit to protect the circuitry of the power module. If it blows, then the motor won't work and you will get error 30.

If it has blown, it's likely to be caused by the motor. I had one last week where the armature in the motor had shorted to earth which blew the 7.5 Amp fuse.

To check the brushes, with the machine unplugged! Have a look at my Hotpoint and Creda carbon brushes diagnostics You can also Buy Hotpoint & Creda carbon brushes

How will i know if it is the moter that is broken on my wmf540?


The WMF540 motor is usually quite robust, depending on the symtoms.... I would look at the Main control panel, and check the brushes on the motor.

Continually spinning


indesits dont have carbon brushes they have a module which controls everything to your tomer if this is faulty or your timer then its not worth doing too much in money to replace get a hoover or candy same machine just ones the uk model and the other is the us model dont go for hotpoint though because indesit own hotpoint now and there changing the carbon brushes to modules which is a big mistake alot dearer to replace then the carbon brushes but maybe thats why there doing so customers have to buy another washer check the price by going to indesit customer support web site but i always keep customers away from indesit due to that module some hotpoints are still the carbons but some arent cheaper to buy a slight damaged from a washer repay shop they usually have damaged at a fraction of the price save at least £125 per washer or buy a repossed one may off been used at the most 10 times nothing wrong with them and you will save £200 plus m8
