Question about Zanussi IZ12 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Zanussi IZ12 Washer won't spin.

Washer won't spin. Have laid washer on its back (which seems to put lowest strain on seal) and have checked belt (which seems tight). Looks like motor is sealed unit. Sounds like it attempts to spin but nothing happens. Motor and drum turn easily by hand. Draining and then turning on/off allows us to empty it. Any ideas on how to test if its the motor or the control to it or any other ideas would be much appretiated.

Check the motor carbons they r mounted on either side of the armiture you will find they r held on the motor with 2 screws or 2 5.5mm nuts make sure you unplug the machine before u start working on it good luck

How do i change the drive belt ?

To remove the belt use a long screwdriver. Put it between the belt (sideways) and the large wheel, lever the screwdriver to outside while moving the wheel in clockwise/anticlockwise depending upon where you put the screwdriver at left/right side. Reverse the procedure for putting the belt on the wheel. While putting the belt first fit it on the motor pulley.
