It depends on the kind of motor you have. Most do not have brushes. Most pool/spa motors have windings and bearings.

I need the electrical motor P/N 90565704-04.

Do you need a new motor or is it just the brushes which need replaced? Firstly unplug the machine and disassemble the motor or gain access to the brushes, found on either side of the motor at one end only. Remove the brushes (they usually unscrew behind the black caps), if they are burnt or look badly worn or are less than 5-8mm in length, replace them. The BRUSH is the black carbon rectangle of hard material at the end of the brass spring. New brushes are often 25-30mm in length as a guide. Based on that information you then decide if new brushes or a new motor is the answer. A quick tip; If you remove the motor and clamp it safely, connect the correct voltage to the motor lead and switch on long enough to establish if it is working and running freely. If you cannot find the parts locally, try uk.

How do I change the brushes on my washing machine?

Hi Shirley

Well, If you are talking about the brushes (electrical brushes) which are inside the main drive electric motor.?
Then firstly I would check to see if this motor has brushes.
Most AC motors don't use brushes on a copper commutator.
Electric motor Wikipedia the free encyclopedia
They do however use a large external capacitor to kick start them in a particular direction and these can go bad.
AC motor Wikipedia the free encyclopedia
They often sit there & hum and can be push started. Not with the fingers or hand. A wood stick on the belt drive. But thats just to prove that it will work when the Cap is replaced.
This is better done on a work bench.
motor start capacitor
But... if you know that the motor has internal brushes you still have to take the motor out & pull the back end off to see & change the brushes.
So, either way, you will have to get access to the machine to remove the motor. While there check for a tin can attached close to the motor (the Capacitor)
Usually a job for an Electrician so be careful to disconnect from the power before opening the machine. Water & Electricity can be deadly.

Good Luck

Motor undefined

It sounds like your motor is going bad. When an electric motor has some age, the motor brushes will wear out and fail to make contact inside the motor. The missing sound you are describing is probably a burnt spot on the armature where the brushes are not transferring electricity. If the unit is an expensive unit, you may be able to order replacement brushes for the motor, or even better.... a replacement motor

Brushes dont turn

If you are referring to the two main brushes underneath the Roomba (not the side-sweeper) then there are a couple possibilites:

1. The gears need to be cleaned/regreased inside the brush unit. There are several videos/guides online that will show you haw to dissassemble the gears, clean out the gunk, and reassemble. Basically there are four screws that hold the unit in; once it is removed you will see several screws on the side of the unit that contain the gears for the brushes. Dirt/dust/hair makes it's way into the gear-case and gums up the works, which seizes the motor.

2. Another possibility is that the electric motor that drives the brushes needs tp be cleaned or replaced. My Roomba had lint/hair caught up in the electric fact the dirt was separating the brushes from contacting the rotor inside the motor, which means they weren't cunducting electricity. Once I cleaned out the motor itself, the brushed worked right away! There are a couple view holes on the sides of the motor...get a flashlight and look inside...there is probably lots of junk keeping the motor from working properly.

Good luck!

Not trying to be stupid I know nothing about electrical what are the brush terminals

On motors/generators (starter, alternator, etc,) the brushes make the connection to the rotating armature. You can read up a little on motors and generators. Bottom line is, the brush terminals provide the access point for the outside world - to electrical leads. If you think of an electric drill for something simple...power is applied to the brush terminals, the brushes connect that power to the multiple rotor points as it spins. Slightly different system with DC power but the brushes serve same basic function - providing an electrical contact to something rotating. You may be dealing with a starter or alternator where faulty (worn) brushes or faulty brush terminal wiring is stopping power from getting to the starter, or from the alternator. Does that help at all?

My motor brushes at end of life for a Black and Decker electric leaf blower. Where can I get them? Black and Decker leaf hog, model BV400 type 4, Cinderson 90510850 motor. Black and Decker site no help...

Try Platt Electrical supply - 800-257-5288 ( BLACK & DECKER #89754-01 REPLACEMENT BRUSH. It seems the entire motor head was manufactured by DeWalt and is now obsolete. I don't know if these brushes will fit, but someone there may help.

Need motor brush

Try a power tool repair shop

Try to find brushes that have the same length spring, same size spring. If they are a little big, they can be made smaller by dragging them on a flat file 'till they fit nicely.
Good luck!
