Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Zanussi turbodry 1000 W1042W doesn't spin or empty the spin water. Help. I've taken the back off and one of the sides. It's on its side now lying on the floor. I replaced the big belt a year ago and that's fine still. The filter is not clogged, though suspiciously for about 3 months very little fluff etc has been collecting in there, almost nothing, is this suspicious? Machine is used every 3 days or so. Can anyone help? P.S. You're dealing with the adventurous but mainly ignorant here, so please don't assume too much of me as you explain, but I'm more than game for it. Many thanks for your time. Appreciate it!

Hello,
Sounds like a blockage in the sump pipe to drain pump or something stuck in the drain pump or drain outlet blocked.Lack of fluff depends on the type of wash not that suspicious.Be careful when lying the machine on its side never lie it on the side the programmer is on as water can get into the electrics.Can you hear the pump turning when you put knob to spin/drain or just a buzzing if latter then the pump is jammed or faulty either way it will need investigating.

Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thankyou for getting back to me. Sorry it's been a while, have had pc problems. You were right, drain pipe problem. I hate to admit having stripped things down, tested pump motor and about to order new bushes on main motor, even though it worked, that the real problem could only have been the pipe not pushed down the tube far enough! Still I learnt a few things. Have to change the bushes one day soon as they are very short. You get full marks for a correct diagnosis. Thankyou!"

AEG Lavamat 16830 won't drain


The simplest way is to lay the washing machine on the right side so that you filter closer to the floor and from bottom of the washing machine is accessible drain pump. It can be fixed by three screws
or just turn pump counter clockwise and pull out.

Stoping under process on every step from begning to ending


its very common for front load washers to have the water pump to freeze up.

ever washed something with sand or little rocks or rubber bands?

flip the washer to the side, then locate the water pump. take the filter and the hoses around the water pump. sometimes the water pump too, to make sure that the fins on the water pump are free and not stuck. put everything together and try the cycle. when the water pump is stuck it will cause the error and will not go into the spin cycle.

Hotpoint wma37 washes clothes ok but wont drain or spin


the hotpoint has a saftey factor built into it if the water does not drain it will not spin , the fault is the pump is blocked or broke or the sump hose is block this leads into the pump

to fix take the drain hose the grey one and put it in to a bucket and it will empty the water

if not the sump hose is blocked

if it emptys lie the machine on its side if poss with power off , if it will not lie on its side disconect the water hoses

look under the machine u should see the pump and the sump hose u can remoe this hose put lots of old towels down to catch the water check in side the sump hose for blockages

the pump this on the new models has hex bit screws on it to open check to see if it move freely it should spring back slightly

try this any problems let me know the model number

Zanussi Turbodry 1200 spin problem


if this washer is used alot then it will more then likely be the carbon brushes which u will need to take the lid off undue 4screws out where it joins front to the back screws at the back to the bottom and 1screw either side of the bottom where the panels join together behind a little cap which will have an hole in the middle of it to get it out u will then be able to get to the motor to replace the carbon brushes

Zanussi turbodry 1050


this may sound silly but check the waste outlet pump electrically, some models are wired up so if the pump fails the water will not enter the machine, this works on the theory that if it fills up it can not empty also check the solenoids for open circuit electrically, double check the water supply to the machine, it may have been fine but you could have kinked the pipe placing the machine back where it should go?

It appears that you may have a faulty door interlock or a faulty PCB. pcb is not really a DIY job as some boards require proramming on certain versions. Regards Advisor
