Re: Drum is not moving
As a first step, check the motor brushes for continuity across the commutator. take brushes out and release them from the motor to see if worn. this can be done with motor in situ but you may find it easier to take the motor out completely

Could be that the drive pulley behind the drum has loosened on the shaft. You do not say that you can hear the motor, but the drum moves slightly. Some machines have a shear pin which fails to prevent damage to the drum and motor. If you machine has one of these, it will be obvious when you get the back off. The lack of load on the motor could do strange things to the programmer. Good luck.
It is most likely that the drive belt is broken and needs repalcing, If you remove the rear panel it will be obvious if it has broken *** there will be a lrge flywheel attached to the drum and no drive belt going to the motor, near the bottom of the machine. These are easy to obtain from any domestic appliance spares store or mail order. They are also very easy to fit.If the drive belt is in place and is reasonably tight (taught) then you may have an issue with the motor. clutch or brake.
i had a similar problem with a zanussi machine
a cheap bracelet got washed with some clothes and it found its way into the drum housing jamming the drum.
it may have been cheap to fix, but i just got rid of it cos it was 4 years old anyway
i now have a zanussi ZWF1231W just past its 1 wear warranty that has just died completely except for an "on indicator light"
the store inform me that i will have to pay the zanussi engineer a Euro 90 call out charge, plus labour costs, plus parts if needed.
im a little bit disappointed with zanussi to say the least
It sounds like the drum drive is broken ... could be a belt at the back of the machine or it could be gear driven ... most likley a belt... take off cover on back of machine to see if the belt is broken and replace if necessary. Also could be pump but that is probably the last thing to go wrong pumps rarely ever fail.
after putting the seal on with the aid of washing up liquid put the spring on first by the door catch hold it on with one hand and isnert a screwdriver in the hole for the door catch this will enable you to hold the spring on if you put your knee against the screwdriver giving you two hands free to push the spring on
