Question about Zanussi Washing Machines
this could be a number of faults, so here are some troubleshooting tips
1, set the machine off on spin, do you hear a whirring sound as well as the drain pump?
if you do then it's probably the drive belt that has snapped or came off the motor.
2, set the machine off on spin, does only the drain pump make a noise?
if it does then there's a good chance its the motor brushes are worn down and need replaced, to check you will need to tilt the machine back and the motor will be right in front of you, using a 5.5mm socket remove the two holding screws from the brushes (usually black plastic rectangles on either side of motor) and the wire, the carbon inside the plastic cover should ideally be 10mm +
REMEMBER TO UNPLUG FROM THE MAINS FIRST.
hope this helps
