Question about Zanussi FJ1254W Front Load Washer
There is a tiny amount of water in the machine that won't drain out automatically. The door is locked and we cannot open it to get the washing out. The drum has broken and therefore it won't spin and makes a grinding/crunching noise when you switch it on. Any ideas how we can get the washing out?
If you get rid of the water from the drum chances are that the door lock will then release. Try taking the outlet pipe and laying it down over a bowl to catch the water. If it empties then the door should open in a minute or so. If it does not empty then the pump is probably blocked, and you would need to remove the hose from the bottom of the drum where it connects to the pump, but make sure you either take it outside to do it, or you do it over a bowl to catch the water, and have plenty of towels to mop up the flood. It sounds like the drum bearings have gone and the bits have gone into the pump, or filter.
