The carbon brushes of the electric motor of a Bosch washing machine are on the sides of the housing. Brushes have a wire, it fit the power supply and a spring that squeezes them and presses to the rotating lamellae. The appearance of the brushes is quite colorful, they can not be confused with anything.
In order for the replacement of the brushes of the electric motor of a washing machine brand Bosch to be successful, it is necessary to correctly remove the old erased carbon elements. How to do it?
- Take a flat screwdriver or round pliers and gently pry off the terminal of the supply wire.
- Now take the brush contact of the Bosch washing machine motor and move it away from the wire.
- Pull the contact very gently upwards, then the spring-loaded brush itself pops up and can be pulled out. Pulling out the brush, remember which way it was facing, so you can put a new motor brush in the same way.
- Inspect the old brushes of the washing machine motor brand Bosch, determine how worn they are and decide whether it is worth replacing or not.
If replacement is required, unpack the new carbon brushes. Insert them into the motor brackets in the same way as the old brushes. Then we shove the spring into the crosshead. This is not convenient to do, because the spring is long and it will have to squeeze the whole to get into the brush traverse. Next, we insert the terminals into the terminals of the upper part of the traverse and slide them towards the supply wire, thus fixing the carbon brushes of the electric motor.
Now we have to put the connector with the wire to the terminal of carbon brush and you can start replacing the second brush. Masters advise to always change the brush in a pair, even if the second brush is intact, it you prolong the life of the engine. Replacement of the second brush is made in a similar manner, then check the reliability of all contacts and the motor can be considered ready for installation in the washing machine. The brushes have been replaced!

What to do after the change

New brushes should be lapped, so we put the motor in place, connect it, assemble the washing machine, install it and make a test run. At this stage, do not spare the engine, assign the spinning program at maximum spin speed as long as possible. The more intensively the engine works the better. the brushes will be faster to rub in and the engine will start to work steadily.
Do not be surprised if the engine is a bit noisy at first, this will soon pass.
