    Carbon brushes for a Hotpoint washing machine motor

    My washing machine stopped spinning and i've traced the fault back to the carbon brushes in the motor being worn. I've found some online (link in post #1) but where could i buy these in the high street? the wife can't be doing without the washing machine for more than a few days! ive looked in B&Q, homebase kind of places but nowt about...

    Fair point... South Wales, Swansea area.

    I've used E-Spares, I couldn't find a supplier on the high street. E-Spares were very good though and I received the brushes within a few days.

    You might try a good old fashioned white goods supplier, try Yellow Pages for names. However it would be very unlikely that they would hold a stock, they would probably just order them in.

    An electrical supplier might have standard size brushes that can be made to fit in the existing holder, I'm guessing at 6mm square about 25mm long.

    I'd recommend using E-Spares though.

    I remember my sisters OH fixing hers because of the brushes,it's common apparently,but i've no idea where they got them from so i'm no help sorry.

    Thanks for all the comments misc'ers, guess i'll just go the eBay route then (less than half the price of the E-Spares one's)

    is there a white goods repair shop round your way, they would have them.

    How about these?
