7 months old and needed a new motor. What more can I say!!! We purchased the Zanussi washing machine as we have a fridge freezer of the same make and have been impressed by it so silly me thought why not get a washing machine same make! It arrived quickly after ordering it fully installed the lot. We use it often well with three children you are bound to. Then last Tuesday I had put in a load of washing as normal and suddenly the power tripped out. So off I trot switching things on and off until I find the problem. My new washing machine. I could have cried. Why does it happen when the baby is ill!!!! Anyway hubby came home and found that the plug had welded itself into the socket. Nightmare or what. He phoned Zanussi and they were very accomodating and sent someone round on Friday to fix it!!! My washing in the meantime resembles a mountain of course!! Then when he arrives I find out that the segment in the motor had blown and that was what was causing the electric to trip out and it was arcing. He replaced it quickly no fault there BUT after only 7 months I expect it to last longer. I am very disappointed by it really as I hoped that it would last alot longer before needing work done to it. Very disappointed.
