    I think i've got the same problem, where do you start,- just strip it down from the back to the motor I suppose? And where do I buy the parts?

I just did this and had to take the motor off because I couldn't get to one of the brushes. It was easy to get off (only 2 bolts) and just as easy to put back on. Taking the motor off made life much easier as fitting the brushes is fiddly.

HI. I have a bosch wfo2466 washing machine and need to replace the motor brushes. does the end cap need to come off to do this or is there an easier way? I have successfully removed the motor from the...


You do not need to remove the end cap.Pull off the brush leads, and ease out the terminal ends of brushes with a pair of taper nose pliers..pull the old brushes out, take note of which way the shamfored end of the brushes are facing in the holder.
Push new brushes into holder and compress the springs as you are pushing them down, locate terminal ends into slots of brush holder.
This should help you with your problem.
Good luck.
Thankyou.

Bosch classixx 1200 fills, drains, but won't wash ?


This a classic example of worn brushes in the motor.
To check , remove rear panel, remove drive belt.
Unplug motor lead, undo 2 screws that secure motor, and lever motor back with a screwdriver or similar.
Keep hold of the motor as you lever it back.
You will find the brushes at the terminal end of the motor, replace if less than 4=5 mm in length.
Refit motor belt and motor plug.Test. before you refit panel
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

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.

Replacing brushes bosch classixx 1000


Hi ya

The brushes on the machine are located on the motor. The motor for this brand of machine is located on the bottom of the drum. The brushes are in black holders usually but can vary in colour.
The are simply held to the motor with 2 screws each either side.
The best way is to disconnect the pipes from the machine make sures theres no water in the machine and and flip it onto its head i.e. upside down.. use a short handle posi screw drive to remove the brushes from the motor and disconnect the the little wire wire from the end of the brush and remove and replace its that simple


hope that helps
