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. Thanks Bob

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!

I had someone out today to try repair my zanussi jet system washing machine as it wouldn't spin, the engineer said that is something stuck between the drum and liner and he can not repair it


Not a very good engineer, so I that has suggest you contact another more reputable one. It is a case of removing the rubber seal between the drum and liner and fishing around inside if that is the case. Can you manually spin the drum in either direction? If it moves freely then there is nothing stuck in there and it may be the actual machine program or spin activation at fault.. If it moves in only one direction can you hear something catching? In which case he may well be right. My guess would be that it is an underwire from a brassiere.

On spin cycle sounds like change or rocks spinning around in drum.


Could be a bad bearing or something loose on the drum that doesn't rattle until you get up to spin speed. Look for something like pins, nails or screws stuck in the holes of the drum, or possibly under the protuberances (fins) inside the drum. Does the sound occur all through the spin cycle or only at top speed?

Possible that the drive output to the drum is not there and so there is no voltage when the cycle come to the spin mode.
Check for fault in the drive, capacitor to the motor.

you need to check the pressure switch inside the washing machine there a small hose connected with the pressure switch to sense that the level of water inside the drum is ok if this hose blocked the machine will not run

Washing machine drum wont spin or turn by hand


If you cannot turn the drum by hand, then the main drum bearings have probably seized up, or there is something stuck between the inner and outer drum.

Grinding sound - drum turns then nothing - just grinding sound until E20 warning.


Hello,
Can you turn the drum by hand.E20 relates to a fault with either the pump or the filter or drain may be blocked,check the filter is clean and the pump can be turned by hand,its up at the end of filter housing and can be seen depending on the model.If the drum cant be turned freely then you have something stuck inside the drum.

Hope this was helpful.

My clothes are coming out smeeling musty


I have a zwf1241w with similar problem. When I disconnected the drain hose that runs from the drum casing to the pump housing there was a lot of collected debris that had prevented the water from draining through properly. You could try clearing this out.
