    Decided to go for a Bosch set rather than the OEM set as the originals had lasted over 12 years with some pretty heavy usage. Took a peek at the instructive video which helped a lot. Got the motor out easily and gave it a bit of a service ( cleaned out all the old carbon and undercut the Commutator and gave it a general clean. Brushes arrived next day easily fitted and re-installed the motor and normal service was resumed. I would suggest a wipe around the insides of the machine with a wet cloth as the carbon gets everywhere as the brushes wear. Always rinse the cloth in cold water , if warm hot is used the carbon will stick to the cloth and it will never come clean. Well done E-spares for a prompt service.

  • Q How do you replace the motor brushes? 2 Answers

    My Neff W4380X1GB washing machine is playing up. The drum sometimes rotates and sometimes doesn't. There are a few sparks coming from within the motor when it does turn so I suspect a new set of brushes might be the fix. How do I replace them? Do I need to remove the motor first? Do you have intrusctions? Thanks.

      It does sound like brushes, i have never played with a neff but would suggest you do remove the motor, it makes fitting easier and gives you the opportunity to maybe clean up the commutator (the sliced up copper ring thing at the end that the brushes rub against) with fine sand paperand blow out the carbon dust if it has been sparking it will be a bit sooty! note: the brushes have angled ends and fit two ways (wrong and right) so note how the old ones come out.

      I've found this article which may help, I'd also suggest looking through our advice centre on the site. I would however suggest that if you are inexperienced with fixing electrical appliances to contact an engineer as it can be dangerous when dealing with live electric cabling. http://www.washerhelp.co.uk/spare-parts-shop/hotpoint-carbon-brushes-diagnostics.html
