Question about Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 Front Load Washer
How do I best access the motor to check and change the brushes?? not obvious without repair manual whether via front or to tilt back and access from below. Advice appreciated.
I do not have access to the literature for this exact model. But in my experience with this company the service panel is a large panel in the rear or side. If you can open the unit up the motor is the most distinguishable item in the washer. Then it should just be 3-4 wires and a matter of removing the 4 bolts that bolt it to the chassis. Then once you have the motor out if you know how to change the brushes it will be easy. If not you can always take it to a local electric motor shop that does motor rebuilds. Theres is about 3 locally to me that cost between $25-$70 a motor depending on the motor. but to do it yourself the brushes kit usually cost 15-30 dollars.
now if you wanted to check the motor you can always getting electric motor cleaner and spray the motor a little bit while its inside the unit. Then you can see when it runs if it still is laggy and has a burnt hot smell. If this occurs then you most likely need it to be rebuilt. It is not always the brushes that need changing sometimes the armature of the motor has warped which is causing excess wear on the commutator which makes it lose contact with the brushes. This can cause it to either wear through or make an excessive gap between the two.
oh and dont attempt to access it from the bottom this can cause damage to the unit and/or injury to self.
Hope this helped in some way if you need further assistance feel free to leave more info and i will be glad to assist you.

here is a book you can locate not only on ebay but im sure on barnes and nobles and such. This will give you the information you need. It is not too difficult to change/check the brushes.
