Question about Zanussi Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a Zanussi ZWH 6160P and the drum won't rotate when put on a cycle. I have tried a number of different cycles including the spin cycle but the drum won't spin. Checked the drain and it's clear. Any ideas? Also tried the fault lights I get 15 red followed by 5 green?

SOURCE: Bosch WFL2450 Washing Machine wont spin cycle

Hi there, this problem sounds as though the carbon brushes are needing replaced or infact just needing to be cleaned of dust or dirt. Its very common for the brushes to be covered in dust and fibres. Im not sure where the brushes will be on this model but I hope this helps you in someway.

SOURCE: Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

The filter on this machine is behind the flat at bottom right of machine. Tilt machine back before unscrewing to avoid spillage. If filter is clear get back to me and will explore other possibilities.

Quite probably the motor brushes. Disconnect from mains. Tilt machine backwards as far as possible. On motor, disconnect wires to brushes. With a multimeter, check continuity between brush and any segment if the commutator. If open circuit, replacing the brushes should do the trick. Also visually examine the commutator for damage

Spin not working at end of wash cycle


if there is no rotation you need to check the water level inside the drum if the level is high the spin can not start before emptying the drum

The washing mashine goes through the complete cycle but only starts the drun rotation every time the wash cycle comes and than after the apropiate time continiues through the full cycle without the timer?...


I hope you can explain once again the fault that is noticed as I am not able to judge what you have experienced.
If the DRUM is not rotating or is erratic in the cycle then it is possible that the program controller unit is a prime suspect.
The power to the drum motor seems to be erratic from the controller and so is making the drum turn out of turn. I thin when the controller is activated the drum rotates without a problem.
So please check your program controller unit.

Stoping under process on every step from begning to ending


its very common for front load washers to have the water pump to freeze up.

ever washed something with sand or little rocks or rubber bands?

flip the washer to the side, then locate the water pump. take the filter and the hoses around the water pump. sometimes the water pump too, to make sure that the fins on the water pump are free and not stuck. put everything together and try the cycle. when the water pump is stuck it will cause the error and will not go into the spin cycle.

Drum will not rotate


im confused as to why you think no drum rotation would be caused by bearings. typically worn bearings would cause noisy spin. only if bearings were completely seized would that cause no drum rotation. can you rotate drum by hand? if so bearings are not seized. can you hear motor rotate when you select spin? if not, then likely cause is motor brushes. do these simple tests and get back to me if you want. and bearings are quite difficult to replace on this machine
