Zanussi Spin Problem

Hello,

I have a nicely running Zanussi T 1023 V. It has a spinning problem. Some observations

- washing works fine

- pumping works fine

- when it comes to spinning, the initial back-and-forth cycle works, but when it should speed up, it breaks after 5 seconds and jumps to the next program part (pump again)

this happens twice, then the spinning programs terminates witghout spinning.

- this does not depend on load: empty machine behaves equally, even (a cruel test :) with disconnected belt (i.e. no vibrartion at all) the motor speeds only for a very short time before giving up.

do you have any troubleshooting hints for me?

thx, Eric

It sounds like the type of problem you can't do much with as a diy repair. These symptoms can be caused by an inappropriate load ( Washing machine won’t spin just one item or very small loads ) but as you say your problem still occurs without any laundry in or on any load so it seems much more likely to be a fault on the machine. Possibly a motor fault, but it could be a pcb fault. I would get an engineer to look at it.

I hope to get around that since for a middle-class laundry that is 9 years

old, though not heavily used, this would mean "buy new one" for economical

reasons.

Well the motor works ... I think the tachometry might be slightly defect

and cause an "unbalanced charge" misinterpretation by the logic.

Depending on the type, a faulty motor could still run slowly but not spin
