Question about Bosch Nexxt Premium WFMC6400UC Front Load Washer
Top load washing machine. I opened the motor but I could not locate the brushes.

Some motors do not have carbon Brushes as its a induction motor as a opposed to a reaction motor which does have, not sure about your model but you could check this first, if it does have a brush kit fitted they should be easy to identify and remove if on the other hand no brushes then you would need to fit a new motor. On the bosch the brushes can be hidden look at the back of the motor ,you will see two wires one for each brush connected. Good luck.

SOURCE: remove carbon brushes from bosch washing machine
u can sometimes tip the washer backwards and with a torch u should be able to see the carbon brushes and the 2 star screws which hold them in undue these screws and the carbon brushes will pop out very easily for u to change them m8

SOURCE: I can't locate brushes on Bosch Logixx 1600 wasshing machine
usally the brushes are at the back of the motor but depending on motor they could be inside . to get to these you need to remove the 4 screws wich hold motor together. but 1st thing to check is to look at armitor on motor and see if you can see a line going round in the middle. if there is the motor will probley need to be replaced as the motor will have burnt out. but motors are very expensive o these machines. hope this helps

SOURCE: I have removed the motor from the washing machine
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 15:55 Sun afternoon.
Our Bosch behaved intermittently then would not run at all JUST before xmas and visitors!. I removed the motor and could see that the brushes were worn. I actually could not see how they could easily be removed- really solid bit of kit.
Went on a web site (cannot remember which one) and the advice was that if you (are able to) change the brushes they will not last for very long- a few months was the experience. As you probably are aware they do not necessarily bed in very well, that is unless you go to the extent of sorting the commutator out first.
Our Bosch is 15-20 years old- good machine and our new motor should last another 15-20 (which is more than we probably will!). Admittedly it did cost £250 but VERY easy to change-took minutes- and I changed the belt at the same time.
So- it might be false economy ;-0(

SOURCE: I've just changed the brushes on my Bosch washing machine motor, but it's still not turning the drum! Is there anything else i need to reset?
1) Test the lid switch must be closed very well, this will NOT start the machine.
2) the start button test for open
3) tight any wires connector
4) see the outlet box from your house is o.k reset the breaker.
5) put some desklamp for to see if working, so go and test the power cord .
6) tight the fuse or c.breaker from control board.
6a) put correct tension in the belt, see for any obstruction mechanical with the clutch and brake see the diagram
7) try it
