You probably need to lever the motor back, as it is probably held in place on the motor mounts.

My brushes on my aquarius wma54 need replacing,where is the motor and how do i change the brushes.what type of motor is it


The motor is located at the bottom rear of the washer.
Remove lower rear panel, unplug lead into motor,, remove earth wire.
Remove 2 bolts holding motor to drum, lever motor away from you to remove.
Brushes are located at the end furthest away from the pulley.
There has been more than 1 type of motor fitted to this model, so until you remove the motor, you will not know which brushes you need.

Need to replace carbon brushes on Indesit Omega 1200


The brushes are located inside the motor. Remove rear panel of washer, remove drive belt, from motor and drum, unplug the motor, undo screws that secure motor, and remove motor.
At the opposite end to the motor pulley, you will find the brushes located, undo 2 screws that secure the brushes, remove and replace brushes.
I would also check the pump filter, which should be located behind a removable panel at bottom of washer, unscrew anti-clockwise, remove and clean.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

I am trying to locate the brushes in my whirlpool awm 5125 washer i have taken the top off but cant locate them


the brushes are on the motor which is located at the rear of the machine sitting just under the wash unit.

You will need a 10mm spanner to remove the bolts holding the motor on. unclip the wiring to the motor and remove.

the carbon brushes are located on the rear of the motor - one on each side of the commutator,

you will need a philips screw driver to remove the brushes

Where are the brushes?


easiest way is to remove the motor - just held in by simple bolts. disconnect the electrical plug and socket wiring to the motor of course.

Zanussi FJS1225W won't spin


motor brushes can be replaced in situ but you will find it easier to remove the motor.

take the rear cabinet half off and undo electrical connections to motor. motor is held in by 4 bolts. undo and motor will slip out.

brushes are located towards the end away from the pulley and held in by 2 small bolts. undo, withdraw brushes and see if badly worn

easier way is to check continuity across the brushes with the motor in situ using a multimeter

How can i remove the carbon brushes to check if they need renewed.I have a Hotpoint Aquarious model no WMA34. Much appreciated Chris


you will need to remove the motor, Isolate the supply by unplugging the machine, remove the rear panel, slacken the motor fixing bolts, remove the drum belt, now remove the motor bolts and drop out the motor, un-plug the motor connections.
The brushes are at the rear usually housed in plastic one on each side, disconnect the single wire and carefully remove the housing (2 torx screws), taking care not to break or loose the brush as it is spring loaded,a typical new brush will protrude 30-40mm from the housing a worn brush will be much shorter 8-15mm and just make contact with the motor commutator. replace if necessary, check the comm for wear, refit in the reverse order.
