SOURCE: smelly washing machine!
The black cover you have removed should be the only "filter"/trap in the drainage system inside the machine. The eggy smell you described has to be caused by one of 4 things; 1. Smell coming back through the drain, indicating that there is no water trap - easiest way to check this would be to disconnect the drain hose from the wall, smell the drain and see if it is the same smell or not. if so, install a water trap, or arrange the drain hose in a loop to form one. 2. Decomposing organic matter in the wet system. There could have been something in a pocket or that accidentally got in with the laundry that has somehow got stuck somewhere - possibly in a filter but also limescale can trap dirt in the system and various items can get stuck in all sorts of places. This can be solved nearly always by running through the cleaning procedure described on this link; http://ezinearticles.com/?Cleaning-Your-Washing-Machine&id=109993 if it doesnt work the first time - try it again - sometimes it can take a couple of tries but nearly always works great. there are also stronger chemicals than vinegar that you can use to clean the machine with, (but they should only be used in extreme circumstances as other components can be degraded) white vinegar is usually all you need. To remove the vinegar smell afterwards if necessary - put a teaspoon or two of baking soda through the machine on an empty hot wash. 3. Decomposing organic matter in the dryer outlet duct (or possibly in the lint filter area, but unlikely, also possibly under the machine up inside where the workings are) - rodents and insects and moss and funghi etc all love the warm moist air that comes out of the dryer and they always can find a way into the duct - something dies or poops in the duct and the smell can be unbearable - easy way to check this is to look in the duct if you can, and see if the smell gets worse if you have the dryer on. Clean the duct out with mild dilute bleach if this is the problem. 4. Some liquid detergents cause a build up slowly in the system that smell quite sewage-like (possibly some powders too, but not so common) - try cleaning out the machine and switching to a different detergent to check if that's the case. Unfortunately the Bosch website manuals page is down today - they will have a manual for your model almost certainly - it is an excellent site; http://www.boschappliances.com/site_tools/documents.cfm try again in a day or two - and you should get a user guide downloaded. An overheating motor is unlikely to be the cause of this smell, "eggy" is not associated with motor or electronic overheating problems. Hope this helps, if you cant cure the smell with these tips, then unfortunately the machine has to be taken apart and the offending item cleaned out - if you fancy trying this yourself then please ask again and we could talk you through it, Good luck :)

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.
