Zanussi IZ 12

I have a Zanussi IZ 12, the belt has either slipped-off or has snapped altogether. I need to gain access to it and have taken-off the top panel, how do I access it? I cannot see a rear access panel.

I've just spent an hour taking mine to bits. On the back there are 2 x 9mm silver nuts at the bottom, below the star head screws you removed to get the top off. Then there are two more sneaky ones at the bottom of each side panel, just next to the gap about half way along on both sides., with a plastic cover hiding them from view. Make sure you release the mains cable holder from the top of the back by pressing the plastic clips down, then the whole shebang should slide off easily.

    Good explanation, it helped me a lot.

    just a few remarks:
    For releasing the cable holder, one should not press the clips down but inward (the left one from left to right and te right one from right to left)

    Further more, at last one has to remove four srews on the top, after the top panel has been removed: it concerns the two most backward screws on each side (as seen from the top). After this the whole shebab indeed slides off easily.

    Regards,

    Wout

How di change the belt on a 2000 maytag top load washer?


HI. you may have a defective idler pulley. excessive bearing clearance can cause the belt to slip off at times. A worn belt will slip off as well. i suggest gaining access to the belt to inspect for damage. you can start by pressing in the middle of the longest straight run. It should deflect no more that one inch. also inspect the belt for cracks, frayed edges or other signs of excessive wear. if any damage or excessive looseness is found, replace asap. It could also be stretched.

((You can check the pulley by removing the belt and physically rotating the pulley, if the pulley has excessive wobbling or shifting, replace it))

DRUM NOT SPINNPNG CAN HEAR MOTOR RUNNING


Hi

You need to pull the machine out from the wall and remove the back panel. This will give you access to the belt drives. It sounds as if the belt has either snapped or slipped off the pulleys. Be aware you may also have a bearing problem on the motor which has caused the belt to come off in the first place.

Hope this helps.

Zanussi IZ 12 pump access


You should not need to remove anything to check and clean pump filter.
Open the filter door at the bottom right front of washer, there you will see the pump filter cover, unscrew the filter anti-clockwise, and remove the filter, and clean same.
With the filter out, you will see the filter housing, which is fastened directly on to the pump, have a good look inside the housing, and see if anything is stuck in there.
Refit filter, and test.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

Unsure how to access drier to put on new drive belt


Here is my own solution...
Disconnect from mains (of course) remove top (2 screws at back near top) Unplug electric connectors (on back panel, top RHS). Make sure note what goes where! Lie unit down on front remove screws (2) holding the drum spindle cover (centre of back) and remove cover pop off the circlip holding drum spindle, and washer unscrew back panel - hex headed screws round outside of back Remove screws at bottom of back panel which screw into the plastic vent housing (3 I think) Lift whole back off. (there's a plastic lip at bottom - need to pull away from this a bit) The drum spindle will be unsupported now, so don't move unit Full access now to drum and motor beneath Get and put on new belt reassemble.
Actually, having got into unit, found could not get belt from local spares shop (it had closed down), so bought new drier!

Drive belt replacement on a Miele T230C tumble dryer


You must route the belt either in front of or slip it behind the drum to get it down to the drive wheel. You should remove the front panel to be able to do this the best.

Drive belt replacement.


If there is no rear access panel, then it is normally a cabinet off job, but it can be done from the top,
Lean the m/c towards you and with a bit of manipulation, you can actually fit the belt this way, it is awkward, but can be done.
