I think the drive belt has gone as the motor sounds as if it is spinning but the drum isnt moving. How easy is it to fit a new drive belt?

I haven't worked on a Zanussi yet but usually once the top has been removed replacing the belt is a fairly straightforward and intuitive process - it is removing the top that tends to be the difficult part.

I expect washer-driers would be more difficult but so far I have managed to avoid those.

Zanussi fls 1284 - how is it possible to make the right belt fit - I have tried and tried - it will not fit. What can I do?

It is elastic drive belt 1196 J5 which means that 1196 mm is the working length based on the belt mounted on the pulleys. "J" and "H" means shape of the drive belt and finally number after word (J5) means number of teeth (could be: 4,5,6,8) .The length marked on the drive belt (1196,1217,1280 etc.) is the working length based on the belt mounted on the pulleys. For a given working length, the belts - which consist of different materials - have a different degree of elasticity. This means that, when not fitted to the appliance, their lengths may be different. It is normal that the length of a plastic belt not fitted to the pulleys is three or four centimeters greater than that of a rubber belt. Also, both types of elastic drive belt are shorter than the working length and therefore it is a little more difficult to replace but not so much that you have to lossen motor.

Disconnect from the mains.
Remove the back, slacken the clamp bolts holding the tension on the old belt next to the motor.
Fit the new belt, tighten the tension on the belt and tighten the clamp bolts.

I have always fitted the the motor cog first then start by placing belt on half of the drum cog as much as you can, then by hand turn the drum and the belt should slip on.

It is'nt any adjustment on those machines. They were fitted with eleastic belts. Is the belt not tight enough, you need a new belt.
