Hi,
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com.
Remove rear panel of washer, and undo 2 screws that secure the motor, lever motor back with a screwdriver or similar, and unplug motor lead.
Be sure to keep hold of the motor so it does not drop on the floor.
You will see the brushes at the terminal end of motor, remove and replace.
Have a nice day.

How to locate the washing machine brushes?


Some motors do not have carbon Brushes as its a induction motor as a opposed to a reaction motor which does have, not sure about your model but you could check this first, if it does have a brush kit fitted they should be easy to identify and remove if on the other hand no brushes then you would need to fit a new motor. On the bosch the brushes can be hidden look at the back of the motor ,you will see two wires one for each brush connected. Good luck.

I have a Bosch Exxcel 7 1400 express, had F21 error which I cleared but now when set to wash, water comes in but the drum doesn't move.


F21 refers to the carbon brushes in the motor so price new brushes - if you are handy they are easy to fit and not expensive - but if you can't do it yourself i personally wouldn't spend too much on repairing a 5 year old machine

Bosch wfl2000 machine works on every cycle apart from spin, washes drains etc but wont spin. Cheched brushes and removed and had motor tested all ok, belt fine, any ideas- Controller!!


are you sure its heating the water as it will not complete the wash cycle if the heater has failed, hence not getting to the spin cycle. try testing heater or see if water is warm coming out or glass warms up

My washing machine is not spining


It is likely that the Carbon Brushes of your Bosch washing machine need replacement. Get them from your nearest Bosch Spares stockist (P/N: 154740) Replace these on the motor armature, and it will be alright again. To be certain that it is indeed the Carbon brushes, open your washing machine and look on the motor (opposite side of the pulley) There has to be 2 grayish chalk type brushes running on a copper armature, these brushes have a lifetime of about 4 - 6 years before being diminished.

Hope this helps

Where are the carbon brushes on a bosch classixx 1200 express


Generally speaking, you might only expect to find carbon brushes in the motors used in some power tools. Household appliances use a different type of electric motor that does not use carbon brushes.

Replacing carbon brushes of csb 500 re bosch drill


bosch brushes are unique. they have a spring embedded in the carbon so when the length gets too short, the spring lets go and raises the brush above the commutator and the appliance stops. you need to remove the handle partially or the brush covers and unscrew the brush holder(s) two small screws secure the brushes and holder to the appliance.

hi Many universal motor malfunctions are caused by wearing down of the carbon brushes, the soft blocks of carbon that complete the electrical contact to the motor's commutator. When these brushes become worn, the motor will spark, and electrical contact may be incomplete.try this
Step 1: To sight-check the carbon brushes, remove the screws that hold the brushes and brush springs into the brush holders at the sides of the commutator. The screws will pop out of the screw holes; turn the motor over to tap out the brushes. The ends of the brushes should be curved to fit the commutator; if they're worn down, new brushes are needed.
Step 2: To check carbon brushes with a continuity tester, remove the motor lead wires from the circuit. Tag the wires as you disconnect them so that you'll be able to reconnect them properly. Hook the tester clip to one motor lead and touch the probe to the other lead; the tester should light or buzz. Slowly rotate the motor shaft, keeping the tester in position. If the tester doesn't light or buzz, or if it flickers or stutters when you turn the motor shaft, the brushes should be replaced. If the springs behind the brushes are damaged, they should be replaced as well.

Step 3: Replace worn carbon brushes and damaged springs with new ones made specifically for the motor. The model information (number and make) is stamped on a metal plate fastened to the motor, or embossed on the metal housing of the motor. If you can't find the model information, take the worn brushes and springs with you to an appliance-parts store to make sure you get the right kind. Insert the new springs and brushes in the brush holders, replace the brush assemblies, and secure the new brushes with the mounting screws that held the old brushes.
