Machine worked fine to start with . Then stopped. Will fill water but drum wont turn on a wash cycle. And wont spin on spin cycle.But Belt seems fine. Can you help.


The pump needs to be replaced. The pump controls the agitation for the wash cycle, also controls the tub for draining & spinning after the wash & rinse cycle. The belt has nothing to do with it. Pump is very simple to remove & replace, and not too expensive, it's plastic.

I have a Zanussi zwf1621s washing machine which is approx 6 yrs old. When spinning today it made a strange noise so i turned the machine off. When I went to restart the machine all the lights came on but...


it really depends on the sound it made, if it was a rumble or a screech it could be the motor, or grinding it could be the bearing or something is in the drum, if it was on a drain cycle it could be the pump or something in the pump blocking/catching on the fins in the pump ( hair can affect the pump). coins can sometimes get to the drum housing and cause damage, ie catch the heating element, this can make the washer not start as the washer has a earthing sensor on the element resistance. hope this helps.

I have a Zanussi Aquacycle 1000. It is taking in water and draining but the drum does not rotate both during wash cycle and spin cycle. Urgent help needed as we have people staying from England and NO wash...


Hi.

If the machine is filling up, then cycling and draining, the problem is usually the belt. The belt is reached disassembling the appliance . If the belt is OK the problem is usually the motor or the motor control unit, which is a sealed electronic module connected to motor and to control board and located inside the washer. If the motor has volts and does not turn, then the motor must be replaced. In some less common case the control module itself may be responsible. Motor assembly and belt are located at the back of the drum and get accessed disassembling top and back of the washing machine.

If the machine does not go through the cycle, but it starts draining from start, then the problem is overfill detected. In that case check the drain system, the drain hose, the inlet valve and the pressure switch.

Regards.

Zanussi washer just keeps on trying to drain


this is the electronics on the machine reacting to a fault .the electronic has detected an electrical component fault .for example a motor gone short circuit you can only find out what by testing the components with a suitable test meter or by acessing the machines own diagnostic facility and retrieving the error code .if cant test with a meter you need the manufacturers service engineer

Drum will not turn.


Sounds like you've got something stuck in between the drum and tub the best way to check is through the heater at the rear of the machine. Could also be the motor or drum bearings have seized if its the drum bearings there's usually brown oil coming from the back of the drum. Take the belt off to see if either the drum or motor can be turned manualy. hope this helps.

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.
