Question about Zanussi ZWF1430W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

The belt has come off, how do you unscrew the 4 white screws ( white disc front about 1 inch in diameter with a 2 mm hole at centre to get the back off ? The Rubber belt was loose at the bottom of the case, and the drum will not revolve manually, I would like to get the back off the machine to see if the belt coming off is the problem its not working , or some thing els. The shell of the machine splits in half vertically along the sides of the machine - and is held in place by 4 circular screws, with a white disc about 1 inch in diameter ( 25mm) and a 2 mm hole at the centre visible on the outside. However , what tool do you need to unscrew them ? Thanks

There is no need to split the case simply turn it upside down be careful there are concrete blocks in there and they make it heavy. You can then work on the belt and the drum bearing which if you cant turn the drum sounds jammed if so you will need new drum bearings and to replace them you will have to split the case, but having seen it from the bottom it should be easier

Hi there im the wash docotor. With your zanussis once you have removed the back half of the pannel and the top pannel. you will have to then detach the motor wire plug. then the heater wires and also the there is a sensoer on the side of the drum that also has a wiring connection. Also detactch the earth wires Then here come the tricky part. if you look on the top of the drum you have a rubber pipe connected to it comming from the washer draw detach that its easy. Then you have to dicconect the door seal from the front of the machine by the door (do not dissconect from the seal from the drum as you dont have to . Then disconnect the the drain hose. once this is all done you have to disconnect the legs, from the drum side. these are easily done as the pegs come out easily if you push in the pips from one side you can either knock them out with a hammer but it is best to pull em out with either some long bent nose pliers or gripping em in such a way with a monkey ranch Best way og getting the drum out is once you have done all that is to turn the machine onto its back and lifting the casing off leaving the drum on the floor.

SOURCE: Drainage filter was blocked, hole melted in drum!

Hi, I used JB Weld (an epoxy type paste available from a DIY store) to mend several small holes in the drum on my washing machine. May be worth trying if the holes are not too big even if its only a temporary measure to check whether the machine still works OK before deciding if you want to buy a new drum.

SOURCE: zanussi wjd1667w door seal dislodged

Follow these steps to replace your door seal:

For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS
Disconnect all power to the machine first!!

1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
2 After removing the outer clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,

All washing machine spares featured in this article are available at apart4u with more video help in our tutorial section.

How to install Kirby g4 fan


It needs to be stripped completly down, if you are confident at doing this then here goes.
It has been a while for me so take your time and some of the steps may have to be completed slightly differently.
Isolate / unplug the machine from the mains
Remove the bag, handle and front roller assembly so you are left with a bare machine.
Remove the rear switch cover - 1 x screw.
remove the top aluminium cover 2 x screws at the back and 2 x screws at the front below the light.
You should now see the motor and tech drive.
Remove the tech drive, tech drive belt and rear wheels 4 x screws below the machine.
Remove the wiring to the motor noting the correct connections for putting back.
unscrew the motor 4 x screws inside (think) and two at the front below the fan aperature.
remove the motor and fan complete.
To remove the fan, note the hole through the fan shaft close to the belt position, this is for leverage when unscrewing the fan, hold the motor shaft, insert a small screw driver or punch through the shaft hole and unscrew to remove the fan.
Re-fit in reverse order.

Upper rack not getting clean


The problem likely is the cutter/chopper filter.
1. Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket (Pop off 'keepers' at the ends of the slidding shelf supports).
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmily) centre post. Lift arm assembly out.
3. Remove overhead conduit. One screw at back and one at top (Philips #2 screwdriver bit). Rotate whole assembly 45 deg to the right (Clockwise) and lift off of centre post It can then be taken apart to clean.
4. Remove centre post (Pull straight up) Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 screwdriver bit). Lift whole plastic assembly out. Pop off the screen (Flat blade screwdriver around the edge) and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at left front (Under the just removed centre assembly). Remove (Star T-15 screwdriver bit) screw and cap (Needs a bit of wiggling to get it free). Remove cutter and filter ( a stainless steel disc with many holes in it). Tt is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and lift the filter straight up. Clean thoroughly. I then ran a 'quick rinse' cycle with everything out, to clean the inside.
6. Reassemble - Good luck! This worked for me.
