Question about Zanussi IZ12 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Zanussi IZ12 Washer won't spin.

Washer won't spin. Have laid washer on its back (which seems to put lowest strain on seal) and have checked belt (which seems tight). Looks like motor is sealed unit. Sounds like it attempts to spin but nothing happens. Motor and drum turn easily by hand. Draining and then turning on/off allows us to empty it. Any ideas on how to test if its the motor or the control to it or any other ideas would be much appretiated.

How do i change the drive belt ?

To remove the belt use a long screwdriver. Put it between the belt (sideways) and the large wheel, lever the screwdriver to outside while moving the wheel in clockwise/anticlockwise depending upon where you put the screwdriver at left/right side. Reverse the procedure for putting the belt on the wheel. While putting the belt first fit it on the motor pulley.

Zanussi IZ12 Pumps, then Pause LED is flashing.

hi i had the same fault, the machine would go onto pause after a couple of seconds.. after nearly a full strip down of the machine and checking the obvious i found there was carbon dust on the pcb which was causing tracking (the circuit board at the top of the machine). The pcb looked like it was burnt out, but after a quick dust down to remove the carbon and refitted back into the machine it worked fine. HTH
