bosch classix 1440 spin troubleshooting: The drum turns slowly

This answer was rated:

bosch classix 1440 spin troubleshooting: The drum turns slowly during a wash but does not spin, it makes clicking noises and a metallic buzz instead of spinning. Is it an expensive job or worth replacing, the machine is over 7 yrs old in a hard water area? Thanks

The Famous Forry :

Hi to you from David, 'The Famous Forry'

Customer:

Hi

The Famous Forry :

This may or may not be expensive. It sounds like your motor brushes are just worn and if so this is not expensive at all. You can buy new brushes and fit yourself for less than £20. possibly themotor is no good but I would favour just the brushes in this case. 7 years for a Bosch is not old! If you would like more assistance to carry out this repair I will be right here for you regards David. 'The Famous Forry' *****Xmas Gretings to you and your family*****.

No will have to get brushes. Not done this 'just answer thing before' not sure how it all works!

The Famous Forry :

Ok you can come back here and try and catch me online and we will go through it together. You will need tools such as screw drivers, Philips, Fat Blade, Star socket, Socket Wrench and some spanners

The Famous Forry :

Thats Flat Blade by the way!

The Famous Forry :

You only get brushes once you have removed the motor and confirmed it is the brushes. Then you can order online and have them sent or collet locally.
