Possible that the drive output to the drum is not there and so there is no voltage when the cycle come to the spin mode.
Check for fault in the drive, capacitor to the motor.

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

Noisy squeel when simpson ezeset 550 washer is spin drying


You need to determine if it is the drain pump or not, these can squeal when pumping due to wear inside, if it is not coming from the pump then it could be either the belt or worse case it is the drum seal. It's just a matter of pinpointing the noise

Zanussi zwf 1221 will not turn drum, the end light flashes the water goes into the drum and drains out when a program is selected but the drum will not turn at all. You can turn it by hand and it moves...


you need to check the pressure switch inside the washing machine there a small hose connected with the pressure switch to sense that the level of water inside the drum is ok if this hose blocked the machine will not run

Turns on, fills with water, but then won't spin and makes a high pitch squeel. Belt maybe?


While the belt IS a possibility, you should check to make sure that the drum is not out of balance or that it is wedged somehow.

When the drum is empty, try to manually turn the drum. You should only being turning the resistance of the motor and belt; and the internal working of the tub, so it should turn under some pressure. BUT don't put excessive force into trying to turn it! If it doesn't turn with moderate pressure then something has come loose and wedged the mechanism. Which means that the drum system would need disassembled and repaired.
