SOURCE: replace drum bearing

To complete this repair correctly and to prevent problem re occuring within months you must change the inner drum spider at the same time as the bearing kit, otherwise you are wasting your time, to complete the repair if you have not done one before will take you aprox 1 to 3 hours depending on space available and practicle ability, here goes, remove lid and outer case from machine to do this remove bolts on lower back and two side bolts (under small white covers) remove bolts along top edges both sides on top of macnine, remove cabinet, remove motor, remove hoses, remove heater and thermostat wires, noting location for refitting, remove suspension leg pins and lift outer drum assembly complete fron lower frame, split two halves of outer drum by removing bolts around centre seem, split drum in two, remove drum pully, refit pully bolt and drift inner drum out having put nut back on drum spider thread to avoid flaring shaft, using hammer knock shaft through bearings, then using a chisel or similer object knock out bearings and seal, reverse process refitting new bearins and spider, make sure to replace centre outer drum seal, as these are prone tro leaking I suggest you also seal with a layer of clear silicon, and problems contact me again, not really a job for a novice. Good Luck you will need it. Regards Advisor

SOURCE: Hi.. hope you can help

Hi Hettyboddy,

I found this how to (below) on drum bearing replacement for your specific Zanussi washer and edited it to just reflect the drum removal part.

Power off, remove covers. Disconnect drive belt, remove drive pulley. Remove heater, thermostat and pressure switch. Check if drum splits at front, rear or the middle. If at front or middle, drum will prob. need removal from machine. This involves dismantling the suspension and damping system and removal of door seal and concrete weights. Undo the drum fixing system - either a clamping ring or a series of peripheral bolts and split the drum.If the drum splits at the rear, removal from machine probably not required. Remove the clamping system and pull off the rear plate. Seal and bearings will come away with the plate. Refitting is, as they say, a reversal of the above process. You do need to have significant mechanical skills. If you're the type of guy/gal who works on their car, it would be no problem, if you're a novice, I'd pass.

I wouldn't think that the offending object would make it to the pump, but would probably want it out myself as that is a very nice washer (highly rated). and the idea of having something rattling around in it would be annoying to say the least.

I hope this helps and Good luck.

SOURCE: zanussi washing machine wont spin

check the drain hole when you start the machine if the water is coming back out , if yes that means your dump valve is bad.

SOURCE: zanussi washing machine drum will not go round at all

i had a similar problem with a zanussi machine
a cheap bracelet got washed with some clothes and it found its way into the drum housing jamming the drum.

it may have been cheap to fix, but i just got rid of it cos it was 4 years old anyway

i now have a zanussi ZWF1231W just past its 1 wear warranty that has just died completely except for an "on indicator light"
the store inform me that i will have to pay the zanussi engineer a Euro 90 call out charge, plus labour costs, plus parts if needed.

im a little bit disappointed with zanussi to say the least

I had someone out today to try repair my zanussi jet system washing machine as it wouldn't spin, the engineer said that is something stuck between the drum and liner and he can not repair it


Not a very good engineer, so I that has suggest you contact another more reputable one. It is a case of removing the rubber seal between the drum and liner and fishing around inside if that is the case. Can you manually spin the drum in either direction? If it moves freely then there is nothing stuck in there and it may be the actual machine program or spin activation at fault.. If it moves in only one direction can you hear something catching? In which case he may well be right. My guess would be that it is an underwire from a brassiere.

Washing machine drum wont spin or turn by hand


If you cannot turn the drum by hand, then the main drum bearings have probably seized up, or there is something stuck between the inner and outer drum.
