Zanussi fj1254w washing machine

Worked fine till 6 weeks ago.Then stopped. Turned out to be the motor brushes which I replaced.....On re-starting it seemed to be out sequence and would only do part of a cycle. This lasted 2-3 days then settled down and has been working ok for a month. Now it has become faulty again. Sometimes will go through a cycle but the drum does not move. Other times will start ok (drum rotates) then stops its cycle. Somtimes the pause light will come on, but pressing it will not re-start the cycle?? Any ideas/ Thanks

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

I have a Zanussi fj1254 w. It was making a high pitched squeel when it was spinning. No when I turn it on water goes in but the drum does not turn. It turns freely when rotated by hand. i have checked the...

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.

I have a Zanussi FLS1183W aquacycle 1050 washing machine. It has stopped spinning and I suspect the carbon brushes. How do I access the motor to examine/replace the brushes?

There is no solid base to this washing machine so if you simply lie the machine on its side you can access the motor from underneath.

Washing machine not working

I would advise you tcheck the filter if you have not already done so.
This should be located at the bottom front right of washer.
Unscrew anti-clockwise to remove and clean.
If this is o/k then could be worn brushes in motor, or a faulty motor, or control board..
This being the case, then it probably would be more economical to replace the washer.

Grey sludge on my washing

Hi, I had the same problem.
The waste is blocked, check the drain pipe from the machine and also where it drains out to. (thick sludge)
I ended up unclipping the pipe from the drain motor (Bottom rear) and passing a garden hose throught it to flush it out.
