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.

hi,

this is a tachogenerator fault or the drive motor brushes are faulty. you will need a Miele service tech or a Miele service agent to look at this.

Programme won't move on - rinses flashing and programme won't continue


Hi dear. Regarding your information, I would say 3 factors play up with it.
1- Tacho generator or it's plug faulty on motor
2- Motor Carbon brushes worn out or
3- Power/control unit faulty.
I can advised to contact your local Miele center to diagnose your machine.Thanks.

Hi i just want to check to see if belt is ok, but dont know where to look, i have a drum wont turn


Its probably your motor carbon brushes. If the machine electricals work OK and it pumps water in and out then the carbon brushes have just worn out on the motor. I had the same problem with my Bosch front loader. Easy fix and you can get help visually on youtube. If you are looking for the belt to see if it has come off, undo the screws that hold the plate on the back of the washing machine to access and sight the belt. Also this will give you access to the motor if you need to change the motor carbon brushes. Hope this helps Sue

The washer runs through entire cycle but when it gets to the spin cycle the motor clicks on but does not spin


Hi there....you havent stated whether its a top loader or a front loader.....top loader 1st.....

usually caused by a defective drive clutch..this will require the drive mechanism to be removed and a relacement clutch fitted
front loader 2nd...this is usually caused by failed spin windings in the motor..worn carbon brushes in the motor.or a failed programmer....

Washer fills and drains but does not agitate or spin.


all front loaders have two motor brushes, The motor brushes are carbon and generally have a life span of 4-5 years with daily use. When these carbons wear down they make less contact with the motor armiture and need to be changed. For a service engineer this takes approx 15-20 mins and the parts cost approx €30-€60 in europe depending on the model. Melee and Beko tend to be the most expensive (But Melee brushes are far superior quality)
