Question about Zanussi WJS1265W Front Load Washer/Dryer

Machine won't start

It's the same problem as this one posted earlier - (different user) - any solution anyone? 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. 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). Many Thanks, TerryTerry

Re: 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? Mark.

Does anyone know how to check a fuse in my Bosch Maxx 1000 washing machine??

Try it in a different socket as it may not be the machine. The machine would have been factory fitted with a moulded plug, lift out the middle section and try a new fuse. If the unit failed after filling then possibly you have a short on the wash could verify this if you get power by setting a cold cycle or rinse and see if if completes it. Please also check that the consumer unit (main fuse box) has not been triggered.

Fault code

E90 indicates a communications error between the user interface board (control panel) and the main circuit board. If you take the top off the machine (power off first!), then stand in front of it and look at the front left you'll see the main board and a blue multi-stranded cable coming out of it and going into the control panel. 99 times out 100 this is the culprit, if there's a poor connection at either end then this generates E90. You need to remove the control panel (screws behind soap drawer and plastic clips along the top), disconnect the blue cable, give the connector a bit of a squeeze with your pliers to tighten the connection, do the same to the other end on the main board, refit everything and away you go....hope this helps...yes I used to work for them

Water leaking all over floor

Just a suggestion but it could be that the person who installed it did not seal the pipes properly, hence the leaking on your floor.
If you recheck these pipes to prevent further problems and see what happens.

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.

My Indesit Washing machine doesn't seem to start?

Most likely water has short-circuited your controls; you need a specialist here.

Error E90

That happened to mine, and apparently it is the connection to the control panal at the front of the machine or the desplay unit (4 blue wires). Take the top off and wiggle them around or re-connect if any are loose. Mine worked for one wash and then started displaying i'm not amused and I think i may end up getting a hotpoint!
