What are motor carbon brushes?

All washing machines have electric motors and some motors have brushes, the job of the brushes is to conduct electricity from the fixed parts of the motor (the windings) through the moving parts of the motor (armature this is where the brushes sit onto the commutator).

The symptoms of a worn down carbon brushes in your washing machine are:

1 There is no wash or spin action on your washing machine. ‘washing machine not spinning’, ‘washing machine drum not turning’

2 Intermittent spins when set on cycle.

3 There are large amounts of sparks coming out of the motor from the carbon brushes.

When removing the brushes make note of the way they come out taking note of the angle of the brush.

    Bang on! really helpful in sorting out the motor problem on my Candy(Hoover) GC1682DC.
    It would have cost me £120 to have an engineer to sort it out, it cost me only £20 for the brushes!
