Question about Zanussi ZWF1440 Front Load Washer
the first thing i would check is the motor brushes, as this can be a sign that they are worn down and in need of replacing. the easiest way to check is :-
1, remove the plug from the mains
2, tilt the machine back, making sure it wont fall on top of you.
3, looking under the machine the motor will be directly in front of you and the brushes will be on either side of it.
4, you will need a 5.5mm socket and a small ratchet to remove the screws.( you will only need to remove one brush as they wear evenly, if they are worn then BOTH will have to be replaced)
5, the brushes will just pull away from the motor, anything less than 10mm of carbon i would replace.
on the brushes you will notice two small lugs, these are to ensure the brushes are correctly lined up, make sure when refitting that these are locked into their correct holes on the motor.
hope this helps
