Question about Zanussi ZWF1020 Front Load Washer
Our wasing machine has started to make a crackling sound when on a normal wash cycle. The noise stops once the machine starts to spin. Everything seems to be working fine and we have checked the drum and filter. Any ideas gratefully received! Thank you.

check for some loose items underneath the unit. washing machines normally reverses its rotation when spinning. check if mechanical solenoids pulls the right levers as it starts to spin....

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 21:17 Sat evening,
I presume that you could turn the drum by hand? Also how old/used is it, please?
Can you hear a sound as if the motor is turning? If you can it could be that the belt has broken/come off. If you cannot hear it it could be that the motor is not working.
WITH THE POWER OFF-
have the back removed so that the belt (and motor) can then be seen easily.
If belt is OK then it is likely to be the motor especially if the machine is quite a few years old and well used. Often the motor brushes wear down to the extent that they do not run on the commutator and the motor stops- or, as in our case just before Xmas, becomes intermittent. Although it is possible to go the least costly way and have the brushes changed, it is false economy in the long run. The new brushes will not bed in correctly and will only last a fairly short time (I've heard of 1 month!). A replacement motor (ours cost £250- and I replaced the belt at the same time- both were 15-20 years old) should last for many years.
I hope this assists,
