Question about Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 Front Load Washer
Please help if you can. My 5 year old washing machine lets water in, does not go through wash cycle, does not drain and does not spin.
The last time we had this problem a technician replaced the brushes.
How do I gain access to the brushes that possibly need to be replaced?
If I could get hold of a workshop/service manual for this washing machine I would grateful.
Also..any idea how long these brushes should last? The machine is used for 2 loads a day..7 days a week.
Brushes usually available on ebay,
if the drum rotates but does not spin, this could likely be brushes or component problem (i.e triac or relay) on control PCB. - the latter was the problem i had and this was easily spotted as a blackened track on the Relay on the pcb.
Brushes should be ~£5. - check the existing brushes first before buying them.
fitting is easy, BUT a word of warning..which you probably know anyway..
before meddling though in the machine, locate the large capacitor and with electical screwdriver and discharge all the terminals to earth first! - YOU MUST DO THIS TO AVOID ELECTRIC SHOCK!! - even if the machine is unplugged.
remove motor & undo the back plate to release old brushes.
clean of motor of any excess carbon dust, - this can eventually cause arching if not cleaned away.
reassemble and fit all plugs back.
THEN TAKE 5 MINUTES TO CHECK WHAT YOU HAVE DONE BEFORE SWITCHING ON. -
Do not rush anything - take your time.
