    Much cheaper than the Bosch OEM part and fitted perfectly and easily. My wife says the washing machine has never run as well or as sliently and the washers cleaning effectiveness has increased. Excellent product and well recommended.

    Not the cheapest on ebay, but in view of their excellent Boch brush replacement video I suppoted e-spares by buying from them! Half an hour was all it took to replace the brushes. ( and the last time the brushes were replaced it cost me £95 for a repairman)

    I have a Siemens E12-46 washing machine which I highly rate. Apart from a failed heater element which was replaced free of charge during the 5 year warranty period, this machine has been trouble free and good to use. It’s used every day. Recently it began to make an intermittent ticking noise which was more noticeable when the drum was turning slowly. I recognised this as arching in the motor due to worn out carbon brushes (it was exactly the same noise that my previous AEG washer made when its brushes were worn out). When I looked for replacement parts the original Siemens brushes were expensive while the non-genuine parts were a quarter of the price. I placed my order for the cheaper parts and sure enough the washer stopped working the next day. A couple of day later the parts arrived and I was able to fit them (DIY) in around an hour and a half. An on-line video showed that the motor has to be removed first. The parts fitted well apart from the electrical connection terminals being slightly smaller than the original parts causing a loose fit. It was a simple job to slightly crimp up the female washer power connection terminals, with pliers, to make a sound connection. The washer is now fully working. I expect these parts to last at least 4 years. Very pleased.

    The washing machine does not start at all. Could it be the carbon brushers need replaced or a faulty motor? I'm not sure if the motor does not waork when the carbon brushes are worn out. Please advise.

      If the washer was working normally and then the motor stops turning but everything else looks o.k. it is probably the brushes as they do wear out. This is a good value replacement product, They are a little bit fiddley to fit. Lots of patience.

      Likely to be the brushes. If the machine looks like its operating, making a clicking noise from the relay when it should be turning the drum, but the drum doesn't turn, then that's what it will most likely be. Either that or the belt has gone, but you will see that straight away when you take the back off the machine & you'd here the motor turning in that case If you take the brushes out they are approx 2" (50mm) long when new, chances are they will be about 5mm long if worn out.

  • Q Back Panel 2 Answers

    Hi Rory, Great clear video. It looks easy enough so I had a go. Got the top panel off but the back and side panels seems to be all one piece. There is no panel I can take off at the back to expose the belt and motor. Any suggestions

      sorry should have said WFL2260UK/04 is the model. Yes I removed a small centre panel but it still does not give me enough room. The 4 side panels are definitely all one piece. I have now laid it on it's side and trying to get at it from below. It's not easy butI will get it off, I think the bigger problem will be when I go to put it back together!! Thanks C

      You did not give the make and model of your machine but some have a two piece cabinet that is screwed with a centre joint. There is usually plastic plugs at the centre bottom to be removed to access the hidden screws.

      Badly worn brushes can damage a control board but this is quite rare. Usually replacing the brushes will return the machine to working order and provided the drum bearings are not noisy the machine may last many years more.

    pump ok. drive belt ok but main motor not turning. Followed your video, but the sides and back of the case are all in one piece. Just a small panel at the back so cannot get the motor out as you show on the video to get at the brushes. Can you help?

      It is possible to undo the motor and lower it to the floor before tilting the machine to remove the motor or alternatively disconnect the pipes remove the draw and carefully lower it onto its side for access. Make sure you have help if needed to lower and lift the machine.

  • Q Bosch Logixx WFR2466gb/01 . Wires have broken off water rinse sensor 1 Answer

    The 4 brown wires that connect to the quick release plug on the rinse water sensor have all come away from the plug. What is the best way to identify which wires fit where. I have tried to find a schematic but to no avail. Is there a way to identify which wire fits were or is it possible to get a new section of the loom consisting of the 4 wires and a plug on each end. The connections on the other end go to another plug that fits onto the PCB. Any help appreciated
