Remove back panel.remove motor wiring undo two bolts in front. remove belt. motor will pull out.
my experience of these is that often the commutator is damaged hence brushes worn

Check the pump , first make sure it's not got water in the drum if so drain ,undo drain pump cap and make sure nothing is blocking the pump shaft as this will stop it from spinning

Bosch exxcel machine doesn't appear to spin

Possibly the filter needs cleaning, this is located at the bottom front right of washer behind drop down flap or cover.
Unscrew anti-clockwise to remove and clean
If it still will not spin, then the brushes in the motor probably need to be replaced.

Bosch exxcel 1200 express spinning slowly

I would suggest that you remove the motor, and check the brushes for wear.
If they are less than 3 or 4mm long, then they need to be replaced.
Hope this helps.

Bosch Exxcel 1200 Express Washing Machine spin not working

I had the same problem- machiine not spinning and a few days later not turning at all. Display would go from 11min to 1min.
I did 2 things - 1) changed the brushes on the motor- cost £7.50 .
2) whilst working under the machine disconnected pipe from drum to pump and emptied it- found 2 coins in the bellows.

My bosch exxcel 1400 washing machine will not spin when on cycle what is this fault

After checking that the pump was working freely and water was being extracted by means of the pump, I then assumed it could be one of two faults faulty brushs or motor but still as washing machines can hold a charge of electricity capable of causing a fatality after being isolated I ordered the parts required by refering to the model no. and enr no. located behind the door and requested a competent person to fit them. The parts i ordered were brushes.
