How do I remove the nut holding the drum spider on a Zanussi FJ1254W washing machine

I have stripped the machine down to the point where I have removed the drum. But cannot remove the nut which attaches the drum spider to the drum. Is the nut released by turning anti-clockwise? Is there a special tool that I need?

    I have attached 2 photos of the drum spider which is attached to the washing machine drum, one of which has a close-up view of the centre nut which I am having difficulty removing. Appreciate any help or advice I can get.

SOURCE: Zanussi IZ12 Pumps, then Pause LED is flashing.

hi i had the same fault, the machine would go onto pause after a couple of seconds.. after nearly a full strip down of the machine and checking the obvious i found there was carbon dust on the pcb which was causing tracking (the circuit board at the top of the machine). The pcb looked like it was burnt out, but after a quick dust down to remove the carbon and refitted back into the machine it worked fine. HTH

I have a Zanussi fj1254 w. It was making a high pitched squeel when it was spinning. No when I turn it on water goes in but the drum does not turn. It turns freely when rotated by hand. i have checked the...


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.

Zanussi zwf 1221w drum bearing replacement, is this an easy job to do


This is not an easy repair to carry out, it involves a complete strip down of washer, and removing the whole drum assy from the washer, and until it is stipped down, you will not know if the drum shaft is worn, if it is, then this puts it way beyond an economical repair.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Changing rear drum


I presume you mean the inner drum, this is major strip down, remove the top, remove the front panel and the control panel, remove and split the out drum in half, remove the drum pully, refit the nut and hit the spindle with a hammer using the nut to protect the thread, this will force the drum spider out of the bearings, reverse the process to reassemble. Regards and good luck Advisor

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
