Zanussi FJS1225W won't spin

Hi
Please someone help. Our Zanussi FJS1225W is about 5 yrs old and has been working well, it will drain and programme, but won't spin. Someone said to change the motor brushes but I don't know where they are located?
Thanks
Andy

Motor brushes can be replaced in situ but you will find it easier to remove the motor.

take the rear cabinet half off and undo electrical connections to motor. motor is held in by 4 bolts. undo and motor will slip out.

brushes are located towards the end away from the pulley and held in by 2 small bolts. undo, withdraw brushes and see if badly worn

easier way is to check continuity across the brushes with the motor in situ using a multimeter

Start light flicking on and off


Hi - I have had the same problem. My husband just fixed the pump as the water was not draining out. When we turned the machine on again the door light was flashing and no water was going into the machine. I just tried a solution posted from here by someone else which was to turn the machine on and then hold down the start and the reset buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds. Hey presto, machine now working!
