Question about Washing Machines
Flashing fault code C9
You need to hold the buttons down for a few seconds. All the machine lights come on - then turn the machine to off. If you do not wait till the lights come on it will not reset.

Just a bit more on replacing the "coalbrushes" - I generally would call them motor brushes:
I have read a solution on this site which was to replace the motor - I was quoted £199 for a new motor and bought new brushes for just £20.15p, which fixed the problem!
A reasonably competent person needs to remove the motor, identify the brushes and remove - just involves two hex-head screws. When new the brushes will be around 2.5cm long. They need to be around 1 - 1.5cm long to work. Alternatively the spring(s) may be sticking, preventing the brushes from being pushed against the rotor.
When calling suppliers to enquire as to availability I needed not just the product description, but also the PNC and serial numbers (located inside the front door), as types of brushes have varied during the production period. However the outlet I went to still did not have the correct bush - housings were different. The chap serviing very kindly swapped new brushes into the existing housings - this is something you could do yourself if you cannot get the exact same ones - just a little fiddly.
Hope this helps!

Hello. I got error code C9 on a LAVAMAT 86800. It pumped in water, and it pumps out water. You can select pump in or out....But the motor dont turn. It will not sentrifuge. So I bought new carbon brush'es on the net. One of them were totally wore down. Now it works. They lasted for 10 years.
