Hi, I have a zanussi turbodry 1200 which is around 2 years old. My wife tells me that everything works fine until the machine trys to enter the spin cycle. The drum starts to rotate then cuts out after a second or two. It then attempts to spin a couple more times then gives up. (Know how it feels). Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.

Re: 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

its very common for front load washers to have the water pump to freeze up.
ever washed something with sand or little rocks or rubber bands?
flip the washer to the side, then locate the water pump. take the filter and the hoses around the water pump. sometimes the water pump too, to make sure that the fins on the water pump are free and not stuck. put everything together and try the cycle. when the water pump is stuck it will cause the error and will not go into the spin cycle.
e90 means there is a communication error between the circuit boards inside. remove the plug then take the lid off the machine, remove the block which has the 5 (iirc) blue wires in it and give it a quick squeeze then replace, this should hopefully solve your problem.
hope this helps

this may sound silly but check the waste outlet pump electrically, some models are wired up so if the pump fails the water will not enter the machine, this works on the theory that if it fills up it can not empty
also check the solenoids for open circuit electrically, double check the water supply to the machine, it may have been fine but you could have kinked the pipe placing the machine back where it should go?
