Review: Part was supposed to be universal, but wasn't and I had to modify to make fit. 3 stars

Bought Washing Machine Carbon Brush Inserts x 2 L94MF7 Transaction was smooth, and delivery swift, however... The brushes are listed as, and claim to be, "universal" for AEG washing machines. These replacements did NOT fit my AEG machine. I had to remove, and, using a Dremel, make new spade connector access holes in the existing plastic holders for the new brushes to fit. I also had to fold flat the raised studs on the new metal casing so that they would fit the existing plastic holder. I also had to use tin-snips to make the spade connectors on the new brushes smaller as the female connectors on wiring harness were too narrow to fit as was. The chamfer on the end of the brush meant maximum contact and minimum sparking which was good, but the new brushes were thinner than the originals which will mean they will wear quicker. After having to 'bodge' these replacements, they did in fact actually work in the end but were a far cry from a simple replacement. However, they are much cheaper than other alternatives, but most certainly are not 'universal'. Used on a AEG Lavamat 86720 washing machine with a FHP Motor UZ 112 G 70.
