These carbon brushes have been used by Hotpoint for many years now and are slightly thicker than the previous brushes. They were fitted initially to the 1200 and 1400 spin washing machines but eventually they became the standard carbon brush for all Hotpoint washing machines.
Note: Some later Hotpoint washing machines have a different motor fitted, which means your model number may be listed below – but these carbon brushes will not fit. However, you shouldn’t be buying carbon brushes for your washing machine if you haven’t already taken them out of your motor and confirmed they are indeed worn out. Therefore, if they look the same as the picture here, they will fit.
To see a picture of and buy the later Hotpoint FHP type motors and brushes see this page Hotpoint & Creda FHP carbon brushes.

(These brushes fit more models than listed above. If your model isn’t listed you need to match them up by comparing them to the ones in the picture. If yours look like this and are the same colour they will fit. There are no other brushes that look similar to this but are different other than the black ones above)
NOTE: Both carbon brush sets (the black and the white type) are very similar other than the colour of the brush holders and the quality of the carbon brush inside. You may notice that some of the same models are listed for both types of carbon brush. Try to use the same colour as your original brushes.
These were one of the most commonly used Hotpoint spare parts ever. These Hotpoint carbon brushes wear out quicker than any other carbon brush I know and Hotpoint must have made a fortune out of selling them. As Hotpoint and Creda are now owned and made by the same manufacturer, many Creda motors also use these same carbon brushes.
There are two common types of carbon brush for the old Hotpoint washing machines. They will fit Hotpoint motors from the 1970s virtually up to approximately 2002. The later WMA washing machines have different carbon brushes (see lower down).
