Question about Zanussi FJS1225W Front Load Washer
My washer won't take the fabric conditioner out at any point in the cycle. I've poured water into the tray to see that syphoning occurs (it does) but if I pull the draw out to see water going into the fabric conditioner compartment - it never does. I can't see how water gets into the fabric compartment - the two inlet valves do the first and second trays respectively, there's no lever / wires / switches on the tray that the timer could use to redirect the flow into the fabric tray. There is a hose that comes from the top of the drum, into the tray near to the fabric conditioner compartment - but, this looks more like an overflow. I can't remove the whole tray as it's fitted under a bar from which the drum is suspended by springs - I'm not sure how to refit the springs (overcoming the tension) if I remove the springs. Anybody got any ideas?
Get a stiff washing up brush and scrub the fill holes above the powder tray. the conditioner fill hole may be blocked or is squirting out sideways. if not there may be a faulty fab cond water valve.

Hello - There are several things that could cause the fabric softener to not dispense into the washer. Are you sure the liquid in the dispenser after the wash is fabric softener? If it is fabric softener, the solenoid that lets the water into the dispenser is not working. This solenoid is located on the back of the dispenser. It only gets voltage during the dispense time and fills the fabric softener dispenser with water. The fabric softener dispenser fills while the washer is filling for the rinse cycle.
When the washer begins to fill for the rinse cycle, the fabric softener solenoid is energized and water flows into the fabric softener dispenser cup. When the cup is full the water siphons out and softener and water flow into the tub.
If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is pure softener you may need a technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The voltage will have to be tested to the softener solenoid and a volt meter is required.
If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is water you probably need to clean the dispenser cup. **** will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into the washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the softener and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub. The instructions for cleaning the dispenser should be located on page 43 of the use and care guide that came with the washer.
If you don't have the use and care guide these instructions will help. Open the dispenser until it stops. In the left rear corner of the dispenser, there is a release that is labeled push. Press down on the push area and you can slide the dispenser drawer out.
Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Clean the bottom of the insert and the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Reinstall the insert and put the drawer back inside the washer.
To test the siphon action slowly pour water into the fabric softener compartment. When the water level goes above the maximum line stop pouring. The water should all drain out.
Hope this information proves to be helpful however if it is ineffective please contact a professional to move forward accurately.
