My zanussi washer dryer w1242w sticks at j on the dial, it turns during wash cycle but sticks when it gets to j,(it does not spin fast) the water is still in the machine, but the drain pump does not seem to get any power.(the water drains if the drain hose is dropped down).
--the brushes on the wash pump seem to be fine. Thanks in advance if you can help me, mark

Check no foreign object stuck in pump impellor and that it turns freely. if that is ok then check continuity thro drain pump. if no muiltimeter, try connecting drain pump to mains direct to see it works

My zanussi zwg6141p wont spin and cut out during wash?


replace the carbon motor brushes and retry if it wont spin usually the water isnt taken out fast enought to satisfy the vaccume switch so its the pump the switch or an air lock
so empty the machine totally and expell all water from all hozes and check the waiste is aok for flow no jams your left with either the pump motor issues bits of b.a wires or the main motor brushes

Unit runs good through wash cycle then while in rinse and spin does not complete cycle. The machine starts doing a short spin, and then dial starts turning around without stopping.


Sounds as if the drain pump is not ejecting the water fast enough. Did you notice of the washer is draining more slowly than usual or at all?

My washer/dryer doesnt spin after going through the wash cycle, during the supposed spin cycle you could hear a humming sound and when it stops there is water in the drum and you can open the door. Is this...


If you can hear a rumbling sound from the drum, then I would say that the main drum bearings have failed.
This is a major repair job, and not one I would recommmend you undertake yourself. as it involves a complete strip down of washer, and the cost is cosiderable.
Probably better to purchase a new washer.
Good luck.

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.
