Question about Washing Machines
Hi, I have a Zanussi washer 500rpm model FA 522. I live in Spain and our water is very hard. I use a calgon type product in every wash, but the calc build up in the filter is still really bad. I have removed the filter a few times (as the calc prevents the washer spinning properly after a few months) and it is always full of stone like calc. Now the filter handle has broken and the whole filter assembly can only be removed by prising it out with pliers. Yes...you guessed it, the filter now leakes too due to the housing becoming distorted from the use of pliers. Can I buy a new filter housing, filter part and handle? Or is the washer doomed? (The washer is only 4 years old). Thanks. Linda.

SOURCE: Leaking door (Running Water)
being in the uk i dont know this appliance, but the fault is probably that it is overfilling caused by crap in the airchamber or the hose leading to the pressure stat blocked or a split in this hose

If it is leaking from the waste pump area it may be blocked by a small piece of clothing like a sock or something similar! This will also cause it to take too long to complete a cycle. Remove the rubber hose onto the waste pump and check inside the hose and the pump, make sure the pump spins freely and that nothing is stuck in the hose pipes leading to the pump

Sounds like u may have broken the coupler gear between the motor and transmission... the replaced the belt with these gears on this model... But should go fill & pumb water out and NOT spin Or agitate... IF these gears or broke or stripped... heavy loads like u said would do this... recheck and see if wash will pumb water out But will NOT agitate or spin.. IF so the above is your problem and is Not to hard to repair or much money
Below is a pic with the motor remove the white piece in the middle is 1/2 of the gear system with a rubber piece in the middle (not there) and another like gear on the motor
sounds like these gears may be broken or stripped on your washer

I suggest taking the top panel off (2 screws in back leave the plastic piece on the lid). push hard back and lift lid off. now you can look in from the top. look for soap residue to see if water is leaking down the side of the cabnet. if none is evident check hoses. what makes you so sure its in the middle/back. if you only notice it during the wash cycle you may have to go in back and take off the panel check around the bearing behind the pulley in the tub, could be leaking
