Question about Zanussi WJS1265W Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Machine will not start.

Had a look at my frineds WJS1265W. The control panel lights up ok and seems to work correctly in every way until you press the start button and then nothing happens? I think the door latch is ok because the light is on and it does not allow you to open it. Also tested it is getting cold water out of the single feed. Everything seems normal except this slight drawback of not starting. The start light just keeps flashing as if it is in pause mode (even though it is not). Any ideas would be much appreciated. (I have tried shaking sense into it). Many Thanks, Mark

The orange on/off button lights up. however the start/pause button does not.

It's hard to tell by the way you've phrased the question whether or not the button is doing what it is supposed to do, or if it is just the light indicator that is not working. So, I will answer both scenarios. // Press start button fully until you hear machine start; (usually less than one full second). In other words, hold button in until ''start'' is _heard_. After start has begun, holding button for 3 full seconds will ''pause'' the cycle. After ''pause'' pressing button again (just like first time) will restart cycle (i.e. ''take it off pause''). But while ''paused'' holding the button in again for any longer than a fraction of a second will cancel the wash. // TO CLARIFY: Press button for approx 1 second to start wash. After start has begun, pressing button for 3 seconds will ''pause'' wash. While ''paused'' pressing button again for less than a second (i.e. ''quick press of button'') will ''resume'' wash. Also, while ''paused'', pressing button for longer than a second (usually 3 seconds) will cancel the wash. // If the machine is (otherwise) working correctly, and your complaint is a light not lighting, then it is just a bad LED light. Best bet is leave it alone. Or, you could buy a new switch if the LED is _inside_ the switch. If the LED is on the control panel, then do yourself and big favor and don't mess with it.

How do I use the Child Lock option on Samsung WF-B1456GW?

Hi there,

You can use the child lock feature in 2 ways.

1. To prevent operation of the washing machine when no wash cycle is running

To set this feature, switch the machine on using the POWER button at the top-left of the control-panel. Next, press and hold both the SPIN and RINSE buttons for about 3 seconds - until the child lock light indicator on the control panel illuminates. All functions of the washing machine will now be disabled apart from POWER ON/OFF until such time as the child lock is deactivated.

To deactivate the child lock, press and hold the SPIN and RINSE buttons again until the child lock light indicator on the control panel goes out.

2. To prevent any tiny fingers from tampering with the machine while a program is running.

After pressing the START/PAUSE button to start the wash cycle, press and hold the SPIN and RINSE buttons until the child lock light indicator illuminates. All buttons on the control panel will now be disabled until the child lock has been disabled. When the wash cycle has finished, you will need to switch the child lock off again to reactivate the buttons. Once you have finished using the washer, reactivate the child lock again before switching the power off as above.

The feature can also be used when using the delayed start feature, but needs to be set after pressing the START/PAUSE button.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Lights on Washer Machine flash but Washer doesn't work

Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

My hoppoint washer wf 640 say test, what do i have to do to solve thgis?

It depends on the version of your machine, there are three methods so try them all.

Try pressing and holding 3start/cancel until all the leds light.
Then press start/cancel and on/off until dOFF is displayed.
Machine should now be ok.

If that one doesn't work.

Try pressing and holding the cancel button. Machine should now be ok.

Press and hold start/cancel, on/off and the top left option button until dOFF is displayed. Machine should now be ok.

Hope this helps.

Zanussi fj1254w washing machine

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Zanussi FJ1254 W - Machine does not fill

Yes if you remove your soap draw and take a look inside you will see that there is all residue built on the top part of the internal draw, Either you can jet wash it off or replace the soap draw,,

this should solve your problem.. if that does not work then one of your solinoid valves at the back is faulty...

The machine doesn't work

Is your load within capacity. See that it is. Press and hold 'spin' & 'dry' for 5 or 6 seconds to unlock controls. Try the machine on a normal cycle once, see if it works.

Machine won't start

My friend got somebody in to fix it in the end. It actually did turn out to be a problem with the door switch. I don't think it was able to lock it's self properly even though the light was on. (Don't know the exact details though). Think they guy just played with the lock to sort it out rather than getting a new part. I noticed when I played with it that if you got the door open, pulled out the plug and switched it back on again it would make a clicking noise for a while as if it was trying to shut it's self if this is any help?
