Question about Zanussi F1245W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Zanussi FX1465W I am trying to get to the bearings. The problem I have at the moment is that I cannot remove the pulley wheel. There is what looks like a bolt in the centre with a hex key hole. But it just will not shift. Should I be knocking the pulley wheel to loosen or the centre bolt. Neither will shift. HELP!!

Re: Zanussi FX1465W

I know the bolt you mean and i find it is impossible to shift
zanussi issued a bulletin saying to give it a good blow with a hammer to break the loctite that is used. i never found this works. the only way i found of doing it was to heat with a needle flame from the oxy/butane burner i kept for fridge work

Why is the drum on my machine isn't moving?

check ur drum belt or the wheel pulleys and in some cases the center bearing and shaft? my suspicions lie with the pulleys fairly inexpensive and not to hard to replace

Need to fit a new belt, what is the best and simplest method?

Usually there is a back panel that can be removed to give access to the motor and pulley wheel for the drum. If not then remove the top panel and look down the back and you will see the big drum wheel. you will also be able to see the spindle for the motor at the bottom. Reach down to the motor and hook the belt around the spindle and place as much of it as possible on the pulley then turn the wheel to pull the rest of the belt on. It can be a little tricky but the only other way is to completely remove the back half of the machine. If you get stuck try and check the advice centre, it gives a video on how to change a belt, most machines are similar. Hope this helps.

5 flashes is motor down to earth usually resulting in replacing the motor. Sometimes the motor may have got damp you can try to dry it out if it looks damp this may work but its usually the motor itself.

when you say "only one pulley...", are you counting the motor as one? there should also be a tensioner pulley...look for it somewhere near the motor.

Drive belt out of alignment

check pulley is fully bolted home. also fault could be due to the bearing spider (on the drum) being broken or cracked on one leg. if this was so, would expect spin with clothes to be very noisy. get gack to me if you want. the belt is a stretchy belt ie no adjustment for tightness
