Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(try this first but no promises!)
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hobart sr24h; It is doing a double cycle; runs a compleat wash and rince cycle stops then 30 sec later start over so our normal 3 min clean now takes 7 min to fully stop operating. What could be the cause...


Thats easy....Change your timer !! The timer turns 180 degrees for one cycle .Then 180 degrees for another cycle thus completing a 360 degree rotation . One side of the timer appears to be broken.

My zanussi aquacycle 1100 is making a very heavy clonking noise on spin cycle.Have you any suggestions? Thanks Craig


Sounds like the main drum bearings have gone.
Turn the drum by hand and if it feels rough or noisy , the bearings have gone.
There should be little or no noise when you turn the drum by hand.
It is quite an involved repair , as it entails a complete strip down.
Plz rate my comments.
Tanks, and merry xmas.

Zanussi aquacycle 1200 smells coming from between the drum and casing.Suspect it is caused by a build up of slime etc.


1. Set the washing machine on the highest water level, temperature on hot and the wash cycle to normal.
2. Fill a gallon jug with hot tap water. Once the cycle begins, let it run for a minute or two, then stop the cycle, open the lid and slowly add the gallon of hot tap water. Don't overfill — you just want to raise the water level so that it is able to reach and clean the inside top rim.
3. Add 2 to 4 cups of household chlorine bleach and restart the cycle. In a couple of minutes, stop it again and just let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Afterward, let the cycle finish, and open the lid to air out the inside.

My zanussi Aquacycle 1100 wont start. A clicking noise starts after I try and start a wash. I heard it could be a door interlock that requires replacing. Is this easy to replace?


door interlock is easy to replace.
undo the plastic clamp that holds door gasket to cabinet. peel back in area of door lock. door lock is held by 2 screws on outside. undo these ans lock comes off. there may also be a small diameter hose as well to door lock which take off as well.
reassembly is just the reverse
