Question about Zanussi IZ12 Front Load Washer
Hi, My machine seems to be filling with water even when it is switched off. For example, I finish a wash and remove the clothes. The clothes are relatively dry and the drum is completely empty of water. Then a few days later I notice that water is lodged in the bottom of the drum. If I open the overflow cap on the bottom of the machine the water comes out and eventually it is all drained off. I can only assume that the overflow container is filling with water and when it is too full the water goes into the drum. What I don't understand is where is the water coming from if the machine is switched off? Any solutions welcom Tim
What you refer to as the overflow cap is the cover to the filter which you should remove regularly and check. however nothing to do with your problem. the water could be coming from two sources: first, if the drain is plumbed in under the sink, water can flow into the machine every time you empty the sink. the cure is to put the drain hose up as far as possible in a swan neck. secondly, the intake water valves could be leaking and the only cure then is to replace them
