Zanussi Aquacycle 1000 f1045 spin dry fault

Hi, I hope someone may be able to assist me with this one.

The machine washes, agitates and pumps out fine, but when it comes to fast spin, the drum will be turning slowly, but within a second of the motor changing tone and start winding up to a fast spin i get a relay click on the pcb controller board and the motorstops. The drum will then start revolving the opposite way slowly(im not sure if it trys to fast spin this way but again it stops).The drum then revolves again the original way slowly before again trying to wind up for a second and again "click" as it starts to speed up from pcb controller and motor stops and turns the other way again. It trys this 2 or 3 times then controller proceeds a step and machine stops and holds out as cycle is finished. 

I have filled water through soap tray before all the above and this is pumped out so the pump is ok i think, door is locked when on so i assume the lock is ok(although not sure about switch), i blew from pressure switch towards pump and this tube was clear, filter removed and cleaned, belt is correct tention. Im sure its not the thermal protection on the motor as it resets imediately if i off/on and try again. Im thinking it may be a welded contact on the pressure switch or possibly a faulty pcb/controller. Maybe someone out there knows what may be causing theis relay to click and spin to stop at begining of wind up of speed. Any help would be gratefully recieved.

Thanks

    Hi Barnsleymick,  the machine was tested with no clothes in on both short and long spin function. No signs of sparking or over wear on the motor carbons. I am now at a loss. It was a sudden failure if this is of assistance. Thanks

Test the machine empty without clothes in it, if all is well then i think your problem may be the motor carbons, take them off and check for damage, make sure one of them has not spit down the middle, also look at the armature for signs of sparking,a worn armature or carbons will work fine at slow speeds

you haven't mentioned the carbons, its trying to spin so may not be the pcb

    probably the pcb module then, although this is not 100% guarantee without actually doing electrical testing with the machine on site,

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.

Zanussi Aquacycle F 1045W doesn't drain


Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. You can take a flashlight, remove the hose from the pump and look into the suction port of the pump. Check for anything clogging the pump. (like the occasional stray sock). Also check the pump impellers for broken or missing blades and ensure that the pump impeller spins freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective and will need replaced. Hopefully it is just a clogged pump or drain line. Hope this helped and best wishes.
