Question about Zanussi Washing Machines

Washing machine doesn't take conditioner

Conditioner stays in its well for whole of cycle. Thought it may be due to thick concentrate, but this happens with un-concentrated brands.

    Apologies for long delay in rating your solution. Business trip intervened.

    Since trying your solution, which fixed the problem, I have found that an alternative to the wire is a piece of thickish strimmer line which is very flexible and can be easily used to clear blockages in both directions, even given limited space to thread it into the holes.

The problem is usually caused by a blockage in the dispenser,remove the drawer completely, and thoroughly wash and clean all parts of dispenser.
Get a strong thin piece of wire shape a right angled bend on the end about 1" long, and poke it in to every hole in the the top of the dispenser, this will clear any blockage there.
This should solve the prob.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Why won't washing machine use the fabric conditioner


Usually this occurs when the siphon is clogged.

Try pouring warm water into the fabric conditioner tank.

Alternatively, carefully put a piece of kitchen paper towel in the fabric conditioner and run a cycle to see if the paper towel is damp. If not damp, then the washing machine isn't sending water into the conditioner tank.

The conditioner isn't going through my machine


Clean conditioner compartment as you can see on bottom picture.
Be sure to read the instructions of the manufacturer of conditioner. Some manufacturers supply concentrated softener which should be diluted with water (is too dense and can clog small drain tube in softener compartment). Also make sure you do not fill up over sign MAX., otherwise softener may leak in drum before starting the washing machine.

Why does the fabric conditioner or some of it remain in its draw at the end of the wash cycle? How can this be corrected?


Use a different brand conditioner. The one you have is too thick (viscous). Or, add about 1/2 as much and fill the rest of the container with water to thin it out.

Bosch washing machine - electronic timer goes down to 1 minute remaining and stays there. Washing liquid has been drained from drawer, however, fabric softener is still there. We have resorted to stopping...


Check if drain filter is clear and drain pump is working properly. Also remove soap conditioner tray and check if you have black residue inside the soap/conditioner dispenser. Sometimes this can prevent water from entering the conditioner tray.

I have an Aqualux 1200 washer/dryer. After the wash cycle the fabric conditioner compartment of the tray is full of water and the fabric conditioner appears not to have been flushed into the machine


If the dispensers are in their proper spot it is normal for some water to be left in the fabric softener dispenser. When you add your softener add water to dilute it as some softeners are very thick and don't dissolve well especially in cold water

Washing machine


i had the problem of my brand new washing machine not taking the conditioner and the customer service advisor rightly guessed that i was using concentrated liquid and advised me to dilute it with warm water then put it in the drawer because sometimes the liquid is too thick for the machine to take.try this!!!!! regarding the powder why not put it directly in the machine or buy tablets and do the same with those

My machaine no longer takes the softner when on rinse .


open the soap drawer when softener should be taken and see if there is a jet of water into the conditioner box. if not, a common cause is the jets in the roof of the box blocked. poke a hairpin in the holes in the roof of the box and see if this cures the problem. if the rinse water does come in, this means that the actual water valve is ok
