I have just replaced the carbon brushes on my Bosch classic 6 washing machine and wasn't convinced that I put one of them the right way round. The motor is now working ok but it is making a highish pitched...


I would not think putting the brush in the wrong way round would make a high pitched noise. I would look for something rubbing against the drum or check the bearings of the drum or armature of the motor.

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.

Hi i just want to check to see if belt is ok, but dont know where to look, i have a drum wont turn


Its probably your motor carbon brushes. If the machine electricals work OK and it pumps water in and out then the carbon brushes have just worn out on the motor. I had the same problem with my Bosch front loader. Easy fix and you can get help visually on youtube. If you are looking for the belt to see if it has come off, undo the screws that hold the plate on the back of the washing machine to access and sight the belt. Also this will give you access to the motor if you need to change the motor carbon brushes. Hope this helps Sue

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

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.

I just did this. Fitting the new brushes was fiddly but not impossible. Its easier if you remove the motor first as this makes access a lot easier.
