Question about Zanussi ZWF1430W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

240v 50Hz Zanussi zwf14581w wont start code EH1 with 220v 60Hz

We emigrated from UK to Mexico, taking our 2 favourite appliances, Boche diswasher and Zanussi washing machine, neither work here. We have dual voltage, 110v and 220v in the flat BUT i guess the frequency ,60Hz, is a problem for the motor so neither our diswasher nor our washing machine work. Is there anything we can do or have we made a very expensive mistake? The machines here in Mexico are several years behind the UK which is why we did it. If it meant spending a few hundred to resolve we would do it. Thanks in advance for any advice, be as technical as you like. The code above is to get this form to work we have zwf14581w not zwf1430w but i expect they are similar.

EH1 is a fault code that relates specifically to the frequency of the electrical supply. The power board is designed for 50Hz and will notice if it does n't get what its looking for.
You may be able to purchase a new main PCB that works with a 60Hz supply. You would need to contact Electrolux to ascertain whether this would be possible.

Can an appliance with a nema 6-20p plug be used in the uk?

It will probably require an adapter. If the equipment you're trying to power is dependent upon 60Hz power, it may not work correctly on the 50Hz power found in the UK... especially if it has an electric motor.

What is voltage of Ace touch dimmer

Hi Roger -

I just answered a related question of yours here. I see in this question that you are located in the UK. Household electrical devices in the US and Canada are 120V / 240V - 60Hz types. Larger appliances such as stoves, clothes dryers, electric heating and air conditioning equipment run on 240V - 60Hz. Small kitchen appliances like toaster, dishwashers, microwave ovens and common home appliances like radios, lamps, TVs, small space heaters, etc. all are 120V - 60Hz.

If the UK 230V devices operate on 50Hz (as I suspect they are), this can cause problems for many electronics, motor operated and devices that have transformers designed for 60Hz systems. Standard toggle switches wouldn't be a problem (provided you slect types rated greater than 230 V), but electronic types - like dimmers - could suffer from overheating issues.

Whatever you choose should be rated for the same (or greater) value of voltage, wattage or amperage and the identical frequency in hertz.

To your question: No, it is not likely that the Ace touch dimmer sold in the U.S. is rated for 240 volts - unless it is specifically identified for use at a voltage equal to or higher than what you want to use it on.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I bought a LG Plasma TV RZ 42 PY 10X in in Italy where it is 220V 50Hz and now live in Mexico where it is 110V 60Hz. Although the TV Data states it's working range is 100 to 240V and 50 to 60Hz after a...

You need a power supply adapter. Might I suggest a 12v dc converter/inverter? The upside is that, for the money, you also get backup power to run your tv! Bonus!

You will need a good sized 12volt battery that will charge off of 110v house current and then the inverter will cover the rest. If the power there is bad or drops cycles you have everything covered because your inverter/tranformer does it all. Nice!

Here is the link to a website that sells these kinds of power supplies.

Colinchee, this sounds like a rather complicated electrical engineering issue. Why not buy a coffee grinder in the UK design and rated for your power? It might even be cheaper and the guarantee will cover design flaws. Regards.

What power supply is needed for hp scanjet 2400

It is depends on your scanner power adapter and where u purchase the scanner from. Here if your scanner is from US then the adapter power input should be 100-120V 60Hz AC, if your scanner is from Euro, UK or Australia, the it should be 200-240V 50Hz AC, while if your scanner is from others place that not listed above then it should be 100-240V 50-60Hz AC.
But the best way is look at your adapter itself, u'll notice the power input and output from the adapter sticker.

If you lost your adapter then be sure to purchase 1 that can output a 12 VDC, 340mA, 4.22W adapter to the scanner.

How to wire US dryer to UK supply - Whirlpool WED8300SWD

THIS document has a lot of info about the wiring for the unit you have. starting at page 6

I am, however confused about the voltage requirements as reference to 12/240VAC with a note to check the "rating" plate

If your unit is marked as 240VAC then it should be a simple task for an electrician to wire up the power. The instructions/details are in the manual (link provided) to connect it up as a standard 3 wire system used in the UK

The issue you have is that the motor may not like running on 50hz and may run HOT. It will also run slower on the lower frequency.

The specs on the website are as follows:-

Electrical Requirements

It may be worth getting all details off the rating plate and posting back here...

My suggestion is that you consult a qualified electrician before attempting to connect the unit to the power

Better safe than sorry.

Compatability with US 240v 60HZ 1phase wiring?

It should work OK The US system is 240V single phase (split) into two 120v branches. Aussi system is hot on both sides, with a center ground (a virtual ground system) Connect the 2 main wires (usually brown and blue) to the 240 (black and red), and connect the grounds (Green/yellow to green), and leave the neutral wire off.
