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. Important 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.
Later Hotpoint washing machines had this FHP motor fitted. The carbon brushes for these motors are different, and much more hard wearing than the old ones which were very small and thin compared to these.

How to find the proper model number (and serial numbers) on a washing machine
The model number is often (but not always) essential. Don’t make the mistake of assuming the model number will be enough because it often isn’t, nor that the name and number on the front panel is the full model number because most often it’s not (Buying appliance spares – 5 things you need to know).
Getting the right spare part for an appliance can be straight forward but it’s often surprisingly difficult to identify the right one (for reasons explained below). Even people in the trade, with access to repair manuals and spare part breakdowns can find many parts very difficult to track down. This information will help you source the correct spare part, and tell you what numbers you need and where to find them.
As an engineer with over 30 years experience carrying out repairs I know the often important difference between genuine and non-genuine parts. Knowledge of this difference will help you make an informed choice about which parts to purchase and can prevent you from wasting money on inferior copies, which can sometimes even damage your machine.
