Hi I have a Zanussi Aquacycle 1050, and it's started to leak from inside the drum I think when fulling up, the front door seal is fine, any ideas what it could be and how I could fix the problem?

    Was helpful, but it's not the inlet valve, the leak is coming from the bottom of the brum through the concert holder on the front. It doesn't leak until its5mins into the wash?

    but thanks for your help...

    It looks like the leak is coming through the counterweight, so would it be a problem with the boot seal or some thing else?

    How easy is it to replace?

This is your inlet valve which is defective. It leaks even if the machine is off? Plug off the wall socket. Check to see if the wires are in their harness connected well. If this is not the problem change the inlet valve, it is easily done.

    Probably leak in the boot seal, near drum.

    You sure it's the door seal, you could do it yourself, not so easy but you can. Goes like this for another zanu:



    Plug off the wall. Remove plastic clamp holding seal to cabinet and peel off the cabinet. Push downwards on the seal close to the tub and the seal will come off - its just held by a spring round the periphery.

    To fit new seal.
    Lubricate the slot which fits over the tub with washing-up fluid. Starting at the top, press the seal so the flange of the tub enters the slot on the seal. Work your way round the using thumbs to force the slot on the tub flange. When slot is on the flange all way round, fit the spring which holds it on. The spring goes into a slot on the outside of the seal. This is quite difficult and you may need another pair of hands. Fit the outside of the seal to the cabinet - this is easy and fit the plastic clamping ring.
    Test for leaks before using in earnest. Use rinse to test as the water level is higher.

Locate the filter at the botton front right of washer, behind a drop down cover.
Unscrew anti- clockwise to remove and clean.
If still no go, then you need to check the brushes in the motor.
Hope this helps.

I think the bearings have gone on my zanussi aquacycle fls 1183w. can i do this myself, or do i need a new machine.


I have just done this myself and to be honest it was quite easy.
you will need bearings l replaced both front and rear as the cost of each was nothing, a new bearing seal and a drum gasket as the drum has to come apart.
Tools are a digital camera ,socket set, torx key set, set of spanners a cold chisel and a hammer. And you need the old bearings to put the new ones in

Door


it probabbly broke somewhere.
if it is possible to take the handle out, I would investigate the problem further.
not worth fixing the handle, you may have to get a replacement.

First try another gadget, a lamp or something on the wall plug, to see if the point is live. Then check your washer plug, could be that the fuse in the plug has blown, check out your washer wire....
