Question about Zanussi W1042W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

The spin function stopped, then worked ok for a week, now it has stopped again.

I use the machine almost every day, however I went on holiday for 10 days and the first wash on my return refused to spin. I tried spin only then re-ran the complete cycle to no avail. The next day it completed the full cycle and worked fine.. Now after two weeks, it doesn't spin again. Any ideas ?

How do i fix a Whirlpool wfs1071bw which has just suddenly stopped working after 5 weeks of being idle? was perfectly fine before i went on holidays!

No, it is not common to fail in that way. I suggest that you check the breakers to make sure that they weren't shut off while you were away. I hope that is all that is wrong. There is always the possibility that there was a power surge that damaged the machine, but I've never seen that happen to a device that was not on, and I would think that other electronic devices would also be damaged. I hope this helped. Dan

Have you checked the lid safety switch? Even if it doesn't spin, the cycle timer will continue.

The machine made a slight squeek noise each time it slowed down and then started up again (durring the wash cycle) We also noticed a strange odor. It was almost a asbestos burning type of smell. Then later...

It probably mean the spin brake has failed. If everything else is functioning OK and it is not making anymore strange noises it will be OK however when you open the lid(during spin) if it takes more than 10 seconds to stop then the brake should be replaced. If you need anything else please let me know.

Washer wont spin

if the coupler and clutch are ok and you can hear the motor functioning, then it appears that your transmission is bad.most of the time you will see that in the days/weeks leading up to this that your cloths were more wet than usual when you took them out of the machine. Check your owners manual for warranty information. Some machines had a 5 year warranty on the transmission or gear case as whirlpool likes to call it.

Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.
