SOURCE: Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WD61P (analogue) washer dryer, sparking motor (and stopping)

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.

First thing to check is mains filter. have replaced lots on this model!! This is located where the cable comes into the machine.Usually obvious visually if burnt.

SOURCE: my aquairius hotpoint washer dryer wd62 keeps tripping electric why

Remove top cover, and unplug motor, try it, and if it does not trip, then motor is causing prob.
If it still trips, then heater is probably causing problem.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

The first problem is that you, like myself, bought this piece of trash. The best way to resolve this problem is not sell it on ebay and never even think about buying Hotpoint again.
