The motor is situated rear centre of the machine. It's best to remove it, either tip it back, ensuring it's stable and supported or remove back panel for access. Brushes are located on either side of the motor.
How used/old is your washer, please? Sorry to ask this but apparently the problem was not the brushes, then? Were they actually worn and not contacting the commutator cleanly or was it a guess at brushes? It's normally possible to see and hear how well the brushes are contacting. I try to pursuade people not to just change brushes but either to replace the motor or have it refurbished (if possible), as experience of many others is that just brush change will not cure the problem. Also often just new brushes will not last very long- maybe months rather than years. Motors are not cheap, though- ours for an 18+ year-old Bosch (including the belt which is extremely sensible to replace at the same time!) cost GBP250 ;-0(
If you judge that it is still not actually spinning fast enough and if you didn't ask specifically just for the brushes to be changed, call the service person back in again to sort as he/she has not carried out the repair.
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!
You will need to change the carbon brushes in the motor. Tip machine 45 deg backwards you might need someone to hold for you and look at motor underneath you will see 2 black carbon brushes remove these and replace if worn then retry machine also make sure the wires to the motor are ok.
Hi Stacey, Seems like your carbon brushes inside the motor may be worn out or sticking.Is the drum turning ok on wash? To check the brushes you will need to remove the motor which nis situated at the bottom of the machine.I dont know if you will risk this yourself, but if so ensure machine is unplugged. Remove back panel, then remove belt, and bolts holding motor into place. There is then a plug on motor which needs to be removed and also the green and yellow earth wire. The carbon brushes are at the side of the motor, in a plastic casing. they will have just 1 wire to each, and will be held in place with 2 screws in each. There are 2 brushes 1 each side of the motor. they should be at least half inch long, and slide in and out of plastic casing freely. If these need replacing then any domestic spares shop should stock them at around £12.- £15.00.Good luck and just be careful as the motor is awkward if you have never seen this
check if plug is loose on motor,in the general area where the belt was changed has anything been disturbed,cables i mean?,sounds like the motor brushes may be worn(this would cause motor to stop),they are situated 180degrees apart at one end of motor,they are easy to change,there is a spot at brushes to put a screwdriver in to remove brushes-hope this helps
i presume you checked the motor plug,not sure if there is a cable running from the motor down to the door in this model to ensure the motor is stopped before the door can be opened,id check in this area because they can be troublesome,take out the door lock by taking the front lip of the door rubber and make sure it is closing properly,i wouldnt be looking anywhere else for the fault at this stage-hope this helps
more than likely your carbon brushes which are situated in the motor under the outer drum these are held in by 2 star screws and are covered in a plastic casing if under 8ml in length then they need replacing as when new they are about 20ml in length change these and it will work let me know how u go on m8
