    I have the same problem - but when I looked at the wheel and motor spindle they seemed to be misaligned by about 15mm, causing the belt to come off after 2 or 3 revs. I can't see how the the wheel and motor can be misaligned as they are all connected - but they are. The only thing I can think of - is if the drum has moved, causing the wheel to move out and cause the misalignment. I will be checking bearings etc tonight

    Zanuzzi 1200 front load washing machine how do i fit a drive belt around the pullys it seems to tight but its the right belt

    I had a similar problem - belt slips off the inside, and bought a new pulley belt and large wheel.

    However, this didn't help, and then I noticed that the machine was dripping brown rust on the floor.

    Major problem - the main bearing has gone.

    new belt the old one came off and was badly worn the unit is 13 months old



Check wheel and motor alignment - a new belt won't stop this happening if the alignment is out - as I found.

What is the easy way to fit a drive belt to a zanussi washing machine fla1001w

Disconnect from the mains.
Remove the back, slacken the clamp bolts holding the tension on the old belt next to the motor.
Fit the new belt, tighten the tension on the belt and tighten the clamp bolts.

Zanussi FLA 1001W does NOT spin

You need to check the brushes in the motor first, replace if less than 3 or 4mm long.
If brushes o/k, then could be a module or motor problem, apart from the belt being broken or worn of course.
Hope this helps.

It is'nt any adjustment on those machines. They were fitted with eleastic belts. Is the belt not tight enough, you need a new belt.
