Ewf1087- loose rear flywheel-belt wont stay on.

Check your wash tub bearings first. From the front, grab the stainless wash tub, and see if you can lift it up and down. Imagine it was a wheel on your car - if you could wobble the wheel about and it wasn't solid, the wheel bearing would be gone - same with your washer.
If machine is getting near 6 years old - probably best to replace it. Bearing repairs are never easy or cheap.You won't have a machine that is as good as new after - you will have a worn out machine with a few new bits in. A loose flywheel means the shaft / fixing point is worn - the wheel will be too. They are usually fixed with a star point TORX bolt, that is locktighted on in the factory. It should never come loose - unless you have major problems.

did you bleed the hydralic clutch system on this vehicle? = air in system or not bleed properly.
most of the flywheels for this model were not to be machined...... however it is ok to machine these only slightly but you must machine the surface the clutch plate contacts with the same amount as the outer raised section the pressure plate bolts to.
new flywheels have painted stamped writing saying do not if hydralic system is ok find out about flywheel.
also may pay to check clamping force of pressure plate most clutch places can do this or some workshops that is if fingers on pressure plate are all at the same height, not broken or cracked..

My zanussi washer dryer wjs 1397 w drum is not turning

It is most likely that the drive belt is broken and needs repalcing, If you remove the rear panel it will be obvious if it has broken *** there will be a lrge flywheel attached to the drum and no drive belt going to the motor, near the bottom of the machine. These are easy to obtain from any domestic appliance spares store or mail order. They are also very easy to fit.If the drive belt is in place and is reasonably tight (taught) then you may have an issue with the motor. clutch or brake.

Flywheel moves then stops

if the engine only turns half a turn or so and feels like it hits something solid my guess is a broken conrod inside the motor(check your oil level??) dismantle engine to inspect damage

My Maytag washer, Model A390, spins but does not agitat. The belts feel very loose even when I hold the flywheel.

If your washer doesn't agitate, check these
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts. Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.
Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.
Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:
  • The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem.

If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.
