Whirlpool washer

Darryl, I decided to tackle the job today. The brushes on one side were ok the other side there were worn pretty good. I tired to find replacement brushes locally and every one telling me that the motor has to be replaced no brushes, the motor is anywhere from $550.00 to $714.00. Hello, a ne3 washer at Home Depot is $648.00. Any way I cleaned the brushes up and the washer is working at the present time. I can not find brushes alone for a 110 volt but can find them for 220 volt for Canada, Germany ant Australia.

That's a truly crazy price for an electric motor. Must be gold plated, or something. Off the top of my head, I can't think of any difference between 120 and 240 v brushes. Do you have a rewind shop locally to talk to?

Thanks, I didn't think the volts would matter on brushes, so I am going to order a set and see what happens. The way that one side is wearing, it want last long.
