Quite probably the motor brushes. Disconnect from mains. Tilt machine backwards as far as possible. On motor, disconnect wires to brushes. With a multimeter, check continuity between brush and any segment if the commutator. If open circuit, replacing the brushes should do the trick. Also visually examine the commutator for damage

SOURCE: washing machine

i am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years and this sounds like it could be the motor carbons, assuming the belt is still on, check the carbons first on the main motor, if these are fine then check the module pcb this is a board that is located normally at the bottom inside the cabinet at the side, i think that it will be the carbons, they are known for it? work with safety if i have helped please rate me

SOURCE: 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.

Hi there, this problem sounds as though the carbon brushes are needing replaced or infact just needing to be cleaned of dust or dirt. Its very common for the brushes to be covered in dust and fibres. Im not sure where the brushes will be on this model but I hope this helps you in someway.

SOURCE: No drum movement during wash/spin cycle, although it fills/drains

brushes need replacing in motor. Usually cheap enough to buy and do yourself.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 21:17 Sat evening,

I presume that you could turn the drum by hand? Also how old/used is it, please?
Can you hear a sound as if the motor is turning? If you can it could be that the belt has broken/come off. If you cannot hear it it could be that the motor is not working.
WITH THE POWER OFF-
have the back removed so that the belt (and motor) can then be seen easily.
If belt is OK then it is likely to be the motor especially if the machine is quite a few years old and well used. Often the motor brushes wear down to the extent that they do not run on the commutator and the motor stops- or, as in our case just before Xmas, becomes intermittent. Although it is possible to go the least costly way and have the brushes changed, it is false economy in the long run. The new brushes will not bed in correctly and will only last a fairly short time (I've heard of 1 month!). A replacement motor (ours cost £250- and I replaced the belt at the same time- both were 15-20 years old) should last for many years.

I hope this assists,

Cheers,

John C

I have a Zanussi Aquacycle 1000. It is taking in water and draining but the drum does not rotate both during wash cycle and spin cycle. Urgent help needed as we have people staying from England and NO wash...


Hi.

If the machine is filling up, then cycling and draining, the problem is usually the belt. The belt is reached disassembling the appliance . If the belt is OK the problem is usually the motor or the motor control unit, which is a sealed electronic module connected to motor and to control board and located inside the washer. If the motor has volts and does not turn, then the motor must be replaced. In some less common case the control module itself may be responsible. Motor assembly and belt are located at the back of the drum and get accessed disassembling top and back of the washing machine.

If the machine does not go through the cycle, but it starts draining from start, then the problem is overfill detected. In that case check the drain system, the drain hose, the inlet valve and the pressure switch.

Regards.

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 Turbodry 1200 spin problem


if this washer is used alot then it will more then likely be the carbon brushes which u will need to take the lid off undue 4screws out where it joins front to the back screws at the back to the bottom and 1screw either side of the bottom where the panels join together behind a little cap which will have an hole in the middle of it to get it out u will then be able to get to the motor to replace the carbon brushes
