Zanussi Jetsystem Turbodry1600XC WJS1665W drum not spinning

I have owned above for 4 years. The machine started grumbling loudly a couple of weeks ago. Since yesterday teh drum will not spin. No error code comes up, just flashing flat lines with associated beeps. I presume roller bearings/motor needs replacement. IS it financially feasible to repair or does it need replacement

SOURCE: Drum Bearing Replacement

With a plastic tub (outer drum as you describe it) removal of the old bearings can deform or bruise out the plastic housing a little - you will need to check that the new bearings will be really good fit. You may need to use a retaining compound if not, to ensure that the outer journals of the bearings don't creeping round in the plastic housing and wear it looser.
I did my Hoover Electron 800 bearings (metal tub). As i recall it was fairly straightforward - needed a gasket for the tub backplate on that.
Unbolted tub backplate from tub and withdrew it through rear of chassis along with drum/drum-shaft/bearings assembly, removed pulley, tapped shaft through bearings with softfaced mallet (or hammer & wood), drifted bearings out gently, working evenly around circumference.
For plastic tub some kind of suitable extractor may reduce chances of deforming bearing housing during bearing removal, compared to drifting them out. If it'd serve to ease the new ones in too then that'd be even better.
Don't forget to check/clean the water level pressure sensor path while you're at it - stave off any problems in that area for a while while you have the machine apart. ;o)

SOURCE: Clanking noise during spin cycle

I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.

Sears knows it and will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer since it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings.

SOURCE: LG Tromm wm 1814cw makes loud noise

You will need to remove the back cover plate of the machine and locate the large pulley at the end of the drum. Remove the belt, then the pulley and you should see a bearing housing. Some models require a bearing and housing replacement, while others can simply be repaired with a bearing replacement alone.
Go here, and find the nearest Dealer for your part.

Or you can try ordering direct from LG. If you are as handy with tools as you say, this should be a fairly easy job.

Grinding grumbling sound upon start up , continuing at a quieter sound during the cycle, loud and grumbly during shut down


Hi.

f you get a very loud noise coming from the machine, and this noiseislouder when it spins faster, then it is often because of a problemwith the drum bearing.

The drum bearing is bad, probably drum bearing spider had broken.

On a front load the drum bearing is located at the back of the drum.

To replace the part you take apart machine, undo the belt and depending on the model you may need to remove more parts.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models here.

Jetsystem blocked.


I had the same problem, if you undo the self adjusting clip that holds the drum seal in - then pull back the top of the seal near the nozzle thats blocked, this will reveal the pipework attached to the nozzle. Then use a pipe cleaner and push up through nozzle - the attached pipe is clear so you will see any gunge and be able to loosen the debris. After cleaning reassemble seal then run a empty cycle which will clear the loosened debris. Regards, Grant
