Zanussi turbodry wdt 1075 washing machine fills & drains but does not perform wash cycles or spin cycles drum does not rotate

Quite probably the motor brushes. Disconnect from mains. Tilt machine backwards as far as possible. On motor, disconnect wires to brushes. With a multimeter, check continuity between brush and any segment if the commutator. If open circuit, replacing the brushes should do the trick. Also visually examine the commutator for damage

My Zanussi fls 1183 is not washing the clothes, they are not completely wet and are not clean

This usually means that the drum is not rotating during wash or spin.

If this is the case the most common causes are a broken drive belt or the motor brushes worn out

Always remove the plug before investigating

had to call an enginer out, the problem was down to a faulty motor rota, to identify if e30 is this fault, rotate the drum (so the motor rotates) and try to start the m/c. if it runs ok you know to change the rota. hope this may help someone

I have FLS 1183W Zanussi washing machine. The drum no longer rotates and does not spin. Rgds

check motor brushes for continuity (you will need a multi-meter for that) or instead, take the brushes out and examine them. this is the usual cause

Zanussi washing machine drum will not go round at all

i had a similar problem with a zanussi machine
a cheap bracelet got washed with some clothes and it found its way into the drum housing jamming the drum.

it may have been cheap to fix, but i just got rid of it cos it was 4 years old anyway

i now have a zanussi ZWF1231W just past its 1 wear warranty that has just died completely except for an "on indicator light"
the store inform me that i will have to pay the zanussi engineer a Euro 90 call out charge, plus labour costs, plus parts if needed.

im a little bit disappointed with zanussi to say the least

Drum will not rotate

im confused as to why you think no drum rotation would be caused by bearings. typically worn bearings would cause noisy spin. only if bearings were completely seized would that cause no drum rotation. can you rotate drum by hand? if so bearings are not seized. can you hear motor rotate when you select spin? if not, then likely cause is motor brushes. do these simple tests and get back to me if you want. and bearings are quite difficult to replace on this machine
