Question about Zanussi FLA1001W Front Load Washer
On any program the washer will not spin correctly. For example On the fast spin program the washer will start to drain water (water pump activates). The drum starts to spin for about 5 to 10 seconds then stops. The pump continues and the program doesn't move on. This happens on all other programs. The washer seems to be able to control the water correctly but only spins the drum once for about 5 to 10 second period then stops. If I turn the washer off then on again(in mid program). The drum again spins for that short period but no more. Here's what I did when fitting the bearings. Fitted new drum bearings this involved removing the drum unit with motor. Splitting drum unit and removing the stainless steel drum, removing and replacing bearings and building it all back together. I had no problems other than getting the removing the old bearing off the shaft. I've check all the wiring loom connections. I'm just really disappointed that the drum runs really smooth but I've managed to break something else in the process. I've read about an off balance switch shutting the machine down. I'm thinking if this sensor is in the drum I may have up set it. I can only see two electrical devices in the drum unit one being the heater element and I'm guessing the other is water temp sensor. Any help would be useful.
Sorry this has not helped, as an engineer of 20 years some problems can be easily sorted, some take longer and can only be found with test equipment or hands on approach, if you have access to ready spares, start by replacing the module, although i do suspect its something thats been disturbed (wire on the timer), even we get it wrong sometimes?

There are no others sensors in the drum, the module (a circuit board) controls the actions of the timer, it may be one or so wires were disturbed at the time of repair, check all connections, any out of balance sensors would only work with a heavy loaded drum? You did not comment as to the motor / drum action when washing from the start of the cycle?
