The brushes usually "come complete with brush-holders", which is a way of selling you something extra that you don't need. Easiest way is to disconnect the machine from the power and the water, turn it onto its front on an old cardboard box and remove the motor from its mountings on the washer. You can usually get acces to one of the brushes really easily and the other is guaranteed to be a real pig, so keep it simple. The brush-holders are usually fastened to the motor casing with either self-tapping screws or small bolts.

I buy my brushes from Ebay sellers and always send them a digital photo of the old brush together with the make and serial number off the motor itself, just to be sure. Brushes can look similar and be that silly millimetre too short, or long, or wide.

Did that answer the question? If not, add a comment and I'll expand further as necessary. Cheers, D.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63 Not Spinning Clicking Programmer


I would suggest you check the brushes in the motor, as it sounds like they are worn out.
Replace them if they are less than 3 or 4 mm long
This would give you the symptoms you are describing.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

yes easy to change there are 2 of them look for a single wire going to each side of your motor when u find each wire u have found were your carbon brushes are right you will need a pair of bent nose pliers place the ends either side of the plastic casing if the carbon brushes squeeze and pull the first brush should pull out take wire of now the 2 brush you wont be able to see but its directly across from the first 1 do exact same to take that 1 out now before replacing the new brushes there a small slot running down 1 side of the plastic at the end you will see a small metal bar push this up which will release the carbon now you can fit them
