Question about Zanussi Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Zanussi ZWF1430S drum not revolving or taking on water properly. Starts to take on water then stops and counts down 2 mins in 10secs. Won't revolve if moved to rinse or spin cycle.

Noticed strange noise yesterday and control stuck on 1min to go in drain cycle yesterday. Today in test run it stopped completely as it hit rinse cycle and we cannot get the drum to revolve however many times we reset machine. Timer seems to either stick on a number or count down very quickly. Only way to get it to respond is to turn off/on. Fixable or new machine??

Hi, you don't say if you took it apart yet, if not take a can of spray oil with the little wand try and put a good spray into it without taking it apart and turn the knob as soon as you put the can down, like right away! Turn it around so it lubs all then try it, give it another test drive. If you need to go futher you can go by places that fix them with the whole piece in hand and maybe they have one in the back barn. How lucky are you! Or go on ebay parts. Put in washing machines, then your make, and the more info you have you might get one, don't give up, I have found 1200 dollar parts brand new for 80 dollars it was more to ship, but I was so happy 5 years still celebrating, kidding, but it was good! Another one, put ad on craigs list, and you just might buy a used one for an amount that you never new exsisted. I have been fixing my own things, or buying used for 26 years. Pay for it when you get there and make sure everything works, like your buying new! A lot of divorces today, means a lot of used articles. A 1500 washer and dryer 1 year old you can purchase for around 300. I bought a large 12 spd. fwd. 3 back snowblower elec. start for 350 used it this winter beautiful machine! Boy I'm talking a lot, hope I helped you, good luck! Frankie

    Machine will not spin or drain water.

    I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.

    Washing machine noisy when on a spin

  • If a washing machine is very noisy on spin, the main suspect is the drum bearings. Drum bearing failure is common on many washing machines due to water getting into them if the drum bearing seal fails. (Hotpoint and Zanussi in particular in my experience) To check for drum bearing failure you can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If the drum rumbles when spun then the bearings may have gone. There should be a constant rumble all the time the drum is revolving.
  • Another drum bearing failure symptom is excessive up and down play in the drum which can be checked for by lifting the drum up and down from the drum lip behind the door seal. A further symptom of drum bearing failure can be a brown rust patch underneath the washing machine and down the back of the outer drum, underneath the drum pulley (where the belt goes) although this patch is not always present. There are usually two small holes at the back of the drum bearings where water that has got past the drum bearing seal trickles out, and it's usually stained with grease and rust if water has got into the bearings.

    The drum on my Zanussi G98302X dryer needs a push to start revolving. It will run for a while but sometimes stops again needing another push. Probably needs lubricating, but how?

    I'm not sure of this model or how old it may be, but most dryers have a belt that wraps around the entire drum and is belt driven. Sometimes a worn or stretched belt might "slip". You may be due for a new belt.

    Not printing on left side of page

    The problem is that the revolving drum doesn't contact the OPC drum proberly. You have to open the left side off the machine and replace the little white gear on the shaft that drive revolving drum. The gear has "jumped"one step and the revolving drum isn't parallell to the OPC drum. I fixed my 2840 last night it takes some time but now it works perfect.
