Need to replace motor brushes...any tips on this job?

    You can replace the brushes in the same amount of time you spend cleaning the commutator. I bought them at Appliance Parts Depot here in Mesa, AZ for $38.00 and installed them in less than a half hour. A local repair company wanted $65.00 for the brushes and one hour ($99.00) to install them. A 12 year old could do this job. Just unplug lead from brush, gently bend only two retaining tangs (there are four) and the brushes pop right out. I then cleaned the commutator and reassembled. I did have some interesting noises the first load or two while the brushes seated in. My machine is 7 years old and the old brushes were completely used up. Hope this helps...don't be afraid to try this, it's simple. The motor comes out easily.

I need to also, so please post what you learn. I found several examples for other WMs on YouTube (search brushes carbon washing machine) Note, I was able to get my Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 spin working again with the following quick carbon dust cleaning trick:
1) Unplug WM and tip up to a 45 degree angle and then safely stabilize so you can safely access motor from bottom. No need to take off back or disconnect motor.
2) Using a small tool like a 1/4 allen wrench or medium screwdriver start tapping repeatedly (for 2 mins) on the brush holders, and back metal clips that connect to the brushes, your just moving the dust around really.
3) Next using an alcohol damp cloth clean the motor commutator - on this motor it is easily exposed on one of the sides 90 degrees away from, and in line with brush holders. Hold cloth on commutator and turn motor, this will also make it clear if commutator is damaged. You cloth should be pretty dirt after 2-3 rotations.
Repeat 2 and 3 above a few more times cleaning up all the carbon dust off the commutator and around the brushes.
After that tip down and test again. A more thorough cleaning could be done by removing brushes and cleaning em - but this will buy you a few weeks/months of operation.

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.

Sure can! Chances are if you need brushes, you should do a clean up of the motor as well. If there has been no water intrusion then the job is fairly easy, if water has gotten into the motor you'll need to spend some time and elbow grease cleaning it out . Always replace the seals, they come in a kit and are inexpensive. At a repair shop average repair bill shouldn't be more than $70-90 for this including parts. Parts can be purchased here:

brushes are on the motor at the opposite end to the pulley. job can be done with motor in situ, but you will find it easier to take motor out.
however, how do you know they need replacing as you obviously have not tested for continuity thro brushes to commutator?

Washing Machine 1200 Aquarius- Hot point- will not spin?

hotpoint use two types of brush depending on the motor. if motor mounted at top of machine, brushesw are clip in and very easy to replace. look at new brush and you will see how it clips in. no need to remove motor. if motor at base of machine, brushes are screwed in with two screws per brush. rather fiddly to do in situ and you may be better of removing motor and doing job in an easy position
