    These are very easy to fit so don't waste your money getting a man in! Once fitted, and put back together again everything worked as it should. I will not comment upon there quality, because in my opinion only time will tell, but hopefully should see my 9 year old machine out!

    Genuine Bosch parts - not cheap but probably the best thing to do. Fit and forget! Easy to fit with no special tools just a T20 torx tool, a 10mm spanner and a pair of gardening gloves to protect your hands from the sharp edges of the machine casing. A door mat to tip the machine onto to protect the paint, the floor and you can move it around. Put the machine on its side, remove back and bottom access panels - all will be revealed. Allow 2 hrs in total. Impressed by the superfast delivery time of 12hrs approx.

    I purchased a pair of these brushes in November 2008 to replace the original brushes that had worn out in my 2003 Bosch Exxcel 1400. They've just worn out now after over five years of at least 10 loads per week most of which have a second spin cycle to get the excess water out of cottons when we do mixed loads on an Easy Care setting. Agree with other comment that it isn't a job that you'd want to repeat regularly as the motor is difficult to remove - a rubber mallet helped with this - so these brushes are perfect.

  • 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
