#243192 Brush/Motor Tacho repair for miele W1986

Posted by ochoada on 27 November 2012 - 09:51 PM

I wanted to report back the rest of my experience. Ordering the tacho from Miele USA went smoothly and next day delivery was actually next day! With the new part in hand it was clear that the module just plugged in and out as the manual showed. Also of note was how the brushes "self store". The are retracted in the new part and then can be deployed later. So I pulled out the old module and it was clear that one of the brushes had lost contact with the commutator. So I may have spent an unnecessary 50 dollars on the Tacho. The brush set alone was 50 and the tacho with brushes was 101. Anyway There is definitely a preference for motor rotation as one brush was gone and there was still a good amount left on the other. I plugged in the new module and used an allen wrench to push out the new brushes. Buttoned everything up and everything was good to go.

Hopefully the results of this repair can help someone else.
Thanks again
