Question about Zanussi WJS1265W Front Load Washer/Dryer
About 12 months ago we replaced the water pump in the machine. Now everytime it is used about 1/2 litre of water is returned to the reservoir where the filter is positioned - bottom right hand corner. I have to soak up this water manually othherwise if it is left it becomes very smelly and subsequently washing is smelly. I have investigated this myself by removing the filter and looking into the area near the end of a cycle. It appears the water is draining away totally and then when the machine stops a whole load of water is returned through the drain hole. I am not sure whether it would make any difference but the dryer hasn't worked for some time. I tend not to use it preferring to dry outside or on the radiators.
There is always water left in the filter at the end of the cycle. Tjis is unlikely to cause the smell problem though.
If you do a lot of 40 degree washes and use a biological detergent you can get a bacteria build up in the appliance which is very unpleasant.
To rectify this, run the appliance on a 90 degree wash with two spoonfuls of washing soda in the soap drawer. Allow the program to complete the cycle( no clothes though) and repeat once more.This should help clean the appliance.
Several appliactions may be required if smell persists.
