Candy E08

I have a Candy Grand Vita
Model: GVS169DC3
Just over a year old with 300hrs on the clock.

When attempting to run a cycle, it will fill and drain without the drum turning, and shows E08 at the end. Ran the diagnostic and it also shows E08 at the end.

I'm presuming it's unlikely to be the brushes given it's age. Any advice where else to look would be great.

Additionally, a circuit breaker operated while the machine was mid-cycle. Could this have caused damage?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Dropped the motor to check the connections. All looked good.
So took a look at one of the brushes. Appeared to have worn down to the minimum. Surprising, given it's a year old machine. On closer inspection I noticed a white oxidation at the collar. I pressed on the graphite and the oxidation crumbled, and out popped a couple of inches of graphite brush! Second brush was the same. Cleaned them up, and refitted. Machine now working perfectly.
