Hiya Cheap6... more than likely the brushes.. which are easily checked to see if they are worn down.. otherwise its a new or RE-con motor.

Zanussi fle 1416w wont fully drain the water out and final spin leaves clothes quite wet. When i turn the drum manually i can hear the water below the drum sloshing about. What's wrong with it?


Hi.

Check for drain blockage, check position of the drain hose and check the pressure switch.


1) Access the drain filter and look for drain blockage. With Zanussi front loaders this located in front at the bottom right hand corner, there is an access door in there.Open the door, unscrew the cap and use a container to collect the water. Disconnect power before starting maintenance.

2) Check the position of the drain hose. Make sure that the height of the hose elbow is as specified in the manual or you get siphoning (water getting back from drain hose inside the tub) and drain does not end.

3)The machine has a pressure switch. It is a sensor connected to a long thin rubber hose. The pressure switch is located in control assembly. Clean pressure hose and switch. One way to test the pressure switch is by blowing into the switch, but manufacturers say this must not be done as you can damage a good switch.
The pressure switch is difficult to test in full. Testing is done either reading voltages while machine is cycling or reading Ohms at the switch with tub empty and full. For safety reasons I suggest users to avoid performing tests or maintenance that must be done with power on.

Here a page about drain/spin problem.

Start checking drain hose and drain filter.

Regards.

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.

Zanussi Aquacycle 1050. My washing machine seemed to stop spinnin


Locate the filter at the botton front right of washer, behind a drop down cover.
Unscrew anti- clockwise to remove and clean.
If still no go, then you need to check the brushes in the motor.
Hope this helps.

When my zanussi aquacycle 1200xc is on the fast spin cycle the spinning drum seems to be getting noisier of late.


Probably the main bearings are going, spin the drum by hand, there should be little or no noise at all, if it feels rough, or noisy, then bearings are failing.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Zanussi washing machine wont spin


check the drain hole when you start the machine if the water is coming back out , if yes that means your dump valve is bad.
