Remove rear panel of washer.
Remove drive belt.
Unscrew the 2 bolts that hold motor to tub back.
Remove motor plug
Lever notor back with a screwdriver or similar, keeping a firm hold on motor.and remove motor
At the rear end of motor away from pulley you will see the brushes and the armature.
Remove brushes, and if there is less than 4 or 5mm of carbon left, then replace them.
Lightly clean the armature with emery cloth.
Refit in reverse order. Test.

SOURCE: zanussi washer washers,drians but will not spin

The transmission is belt driven so carbon brushes cannot be the issue. most likely it is a slipping or loose belt remove lower rear panel and check belt tension also check condition of the belt. In order to shift into spin there is a solonoid that activates the transmission you should be able to hear it click. if it just hums it may need replacment.

The machine will not spin and there does not appear to be enough water in the drum when washing

This is a common problem and while it can be caused by a variety of malfunctions the most typical cause is a damaged lid switch. Look for a plastic pin attached to the bottom of the lid near the front opposite the hinges. The pin aligns with an opening in the top rim around the tub, this is where the switch is located. You can attempt to manually actuate the switch by inserting something (preferably non-conductive) like a plastic pen into the opening. This most likely will not work because the switch is probably physically damaged. To repair/replace the switch on most machines the chassis has to be removed for access.

Zanussi Aquacycle 1200 Model F1245W wont drain. I cleaned filter. Removed pump and tested if off line and it spins so I am presuming that the pump is not getting power. Is this a PCB/Timer Main Board...

We cannot say if the timer is problem without inspecting the wiring to the pump.

Consider an power supply wire to the pump is broken , then even if the timer is good it wont get power.

M/c won't spin

Take off top and rear half of machine cover
remove belt and spin drum by hand, (does it spin freely?)
make sure pump and drain hose are ok (clear)
there is a plastic ball (about egg size) in hose from drum to pump.
check motor brushes are at least 3cm long
if you have checked all these but the fault persists email me on
