Zanussi fs 1555 w machine stopped during cycle now drum will not turn

If you cannot turn the machine by hand then it may be an idea to see if the drive belt has snagged around the back end some how take a peep with a torch thru. top.if the belt looks ok it may be that something has got stuck inside the drum.Sometimes socks get stuck between the front of the drum casing and the drum shine a torch around the front by the door seal and see if you can see any objects jutting out if you can be careful and try with a vice grips to pull out if no joy it sounds as if it will have to be a tub out job.Sometimes objects like coins can be fished out thru the back where the heater sits but still a lot of work to get down there.Body of machine has to be split for access.

Good luck

I have a Zanussi ZWF1241W and something is stuck in the drum. The drum does not spin freely and prior but does not have any play. What is the best way of checking this and getting the obstruction out....

It was a sock wedged between the lip of the spinning drum and the outer (stationary) drum casing. I managed to ease it out with some pliers - rotating the drum and pulling. Be careful though not to nick the door seal (as I did). It may be a better strategy to get the door seal off and then remove the obstruction. I'm about to find out how easy/hard/fiddly it is to get a new door seal onto this machine!

belts do not figure 8
they look something like this
f6516ed.jpg the front panel comes off, to access the drum without removing bearings etc, and the belt can be placed easily, around the drum and motor pulley.
then pull the tensioner hard against its spring, loop the belt around the tensioner and allow the spring to tension the belt.
