Washer dryer sticks on j cycle does not spin or drain

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

I have a Zanussi WDA1055W washer/dryer. I never


the water should only be filling up to approc 2in above the drum bottom...........look inside when its filling..........if its filling to nearly the bottom of the door you either have a faulty pressure switch or grit/dirt in the internal filter.......as a result the machine will not spin if there is too much weight in the drum

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.

Washer dryer is no longer drying


two things to check take rear half of cabinet off and check the dryer duct (lhs from front) is not blocked. this is very common check water is being taken in during dry - the water is used to condense steam from the drying clothes. easiest way to check this is to see that some water is being drained during the drying cycle. i assume that drain is operating ok
