My 10-year-old Asko W6661 quattro is giving a "motor fault indication" at high spin speeds. It can run a regular load of wash, but the indicator comes on during the 1600 rpm rinse-spin cycle.  It can also complete a delicate load which has a max spin speed of 1000 rpm. I think the brushes are worn but was intimidated to do the repair myself.  That was until the repairman said the brushes can't be replaced in this model and I would need a new motor at a cost of $875.   Is that right?

Thanks for your reply. I'll take off the back and check my motor. Will it be obvious which type of motor I have? Even if I needed to replace the whole motor, it would cost half of the repairman's quote!

It'll have a sticker on the Motor
either FHP OR Cecet
