do you actually see the motor spinning? or think you hear it, check the belt hasn't come off, or gone slack, it needs to be fairly tight but not too tight, if the belt and pulley go round but the drum doesn't then you have serious damage and need a new inner drum hope i have helped and if i can help more get back to me, i am an appliance engineer of 20 years

have you checked the filter behind the flap on the front of the machine, this could be blocked. if the machine is full of water though you will have to manually drain it by putting the grey outlet hose into a bucket or a washing up bowl. you will also need one or two towels to place on the floor because there wil still be a bit of water left in the ipes even though the drum is empty.

hope this helps

Remove rear panel and check the belt is o/k, if it is, then remove belt, undo 2 bolts that hold motor, unplug the motor connector, lever motor back with a screwdriver, and remove motor.
Check the brushes, they should be at least 5mm long, \any shorter, then replace.
Plz rate my solution.

HI,

move the kicking plate on the front-bottom of the machine. You will see o circular lid there, turn it on anti-clockvise to open. All of the water blocked will come from there, be careful. Look carefully that there are some objects blocking the water draining. Then turn on the machine on draining programme, the plastic rotor should turn fastly when the machine is on. If it is not running, change the pump motor. If it is running, but machine is not draining again you can understand that there is an objeck stuck on the hose between drum and pump motor. Lay down the machine on its rear facade, you will see a large and black hose between drum and pump motor. When you remove it, you will see that there is something that blocks water running.

thank you for using fixya,rate my answer,

Hi my Zanussi ZWG 1120M washing machine has stopped spinning, no error code is displayed, what could this be?


First check if the water remaining in the drum?
If it is, then the fault is in the drain phase (drain pump,filter...etc.) before the spining cycle.
Otherwise, faulty is motor, belt, electronic....etc.
By the way, model is unknown to me.

Zanussi turbodry wdt 1075 washing machine fills & drains but does not perform wash cycles or spin cycles drum does not rotate


Quite probably the motor brushes. Disconnect from mains. Tilt machine backwards as far as possible. On motor, disconnect wires to brushes. With a multimeter, check continuity between brush and any segment if the commutator. If open circuit, replacing the brushes should do the trick. Also visually examine the commutator for damage

I have a Zanussi Aquacycle 1000. It is taking in water and draining but the drum does not rotate both during wash cycle and spin cycle. Urgent help needed as we have people staying from England and NO wash...


Hi.

If the machine is filling up, then cycling and draining, the problem is usually the belt. The belt is reached disassembling the appliance . If the belt is OK the problem is usually the motor or the motor control unit, which is a sealed electronic module connected to motor and to control board and located inside the washer. If the motor has volts and does not turn, then the motor must be replaced. In some less common case the control module itself may be responsible. Motor assembly and belt are located at the back of the drum and get accessed disassembling top and back of the washing machine.

If the machine does not go through the cycle, but it starts draining from start, then the problem is overfill detected. In that case check the drain system, the drain hose, the inlet valve and the pressure switch.

Regards.

I have a Zanussi WDA1055W washer/dryer. I never


the water should only be filling up to approc 2in above the drum bottom...........look inside when its filling..........if its filling to nearly the bottom of the door you either have a faulty pressure switch or grit/dirt in the internal filter.......as a result the machine will not spin if there is too much weight in the drum

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.

Drum will not rotate


im confused as to why you think no drum rotation would be caused by bearings. typically worn bearings would cause noisy spin. only if bearings were completely seized would that cause no drum rotation. can you rotate drum by hand? if so bearings are not seized. can you hear motor rotate when you select spin? if not, then likely cause is motor brushes. do these simple tests and get back to me if you want. and bearings are quite difficult to replace on this machine
