Default Bosch Axxis WFR2460 Brush Replacement
Model Number: WFR2460 UC/01   Brand: Bosch   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My washer stopped spinning (no rotation of the drum whatsoever), and I think from other posts it is the motor brushes. I've stripped it down to the motor being ready to remove (disconnected motor mounting bolts and the wiring harness), but the motor won't budge off the mounting posts. Two questions:
1) Should I remove the motor to access the brushes, and if so, what's the trick, and
2) How do I remove and reinstall the brushes themselves - the flat piece with the soldered connector needs to come off, but I don't see how that is supposed to work.
FYI, I've been using a mirror to examine the brush mount assemblies...
Thanks!

Default Update

I was able to remove the motor (pried gently with screwdriver at rear mounting posts) so that's solved, but still don't see how to remove the carbon brushes.

mowind, did replacing the motor brushes fix your no spin problem? My washer has the same issue.

Thanks,
Thomas

Yes, it was the brushes. In fact, I had to order them so I cleaned up the old ones which were quite worn down (probably 2/3 gone) and reinstalled them and the washer has been going strong since. I have an appointment in my Treo's calendar to install the new brushes in December '08 (assuming it is still going then). btw, I've owned the washer for about 5 years. Now I have a new issue that I haven't been able to research yet, the fabric softener dispenser seems plugged because when the wash cycle finishes the dispenser is full of water. I also have the matching dryer and it is not taking it's loads to complete dry on the automatic setting.
Hope this helps...

Thanks for the reply. I actually tapped on the brushes and the washer now spins. I've placed some new brushes on order and will just replace them when they come in.

Replies to your other issues (should probably go in a new thread).

Fabric softener: I had this same issue a few years ago and it reoccurs every couple of years. You are correct, it is related to a clog. To fix the problem you need to remove the detergent tray (pull the tray out, then using your thumb press on the blue plastic "button" and pull the tray completely out). Remove the blue plastic thing. Residue that forms the clog is usually in both the blue plastic piece and the detergent tray. Pipe cleaners and cotton swaps work well for cleaning both pieces. The tray should be cleaned at two points, where the fabric softener pours out and the tube on which the blue plastic piece attaches

Dryer: I haven't had this issue. However, I would be interested to know what the problem is and the final resolution. Below is another link that has good info too, you might check there as well.

William,

I have never replaced the drum bearings so I can really help you much. However, here is a link to a diagram of the drum assembly. Maybe it will be helpful?

Regards,
Thomas

Default Wash the lint filter

Even if you remove lint from the lint filter after every load, eventually, the fine holes in the filter will completely clog from dirt and super-fine lint. Soak the filter in a solution of hot water and detergent and scrub clean with a brush or wash cloth. When completely clean, the fabric in the filter should resemble brand new pure white women's nylons.

Default Brush Replacement

MOWIND or TLANDONJR,

I have the same problem with the motor. I have the motor out of the machine (WFL 2060 UC) but can not figure out how to remove the old brushes. From the photo of the replacement brushes on this website it appears as if the carbon, spring and clip should just slide out leaving behind the plastic holder, but I don't see what's holding them in. Can you please describe the process?

Thank you,

Keith

If they're the same as mine, you first remove the connector which should expose the copper blade connector. Then you slide the copper blade slightly forward to line up two notches toward the rear, pull the rear side up then slide out the terminal.

Apologies if this doesn't seem to make any sense (or if it's completely unlike the model you're working with.)
