Zanussi FJD1666W heater removal.

What is the best way of gaining access to the heater element. There is no rear access panel so the cover may have to come off. If so, how do I get te cover off without removing every screw in sight?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There is no easy way to access the heater without stripping it down.
Remove top cover.
Remove 2 scews at rear bottom of cabinet.
Remove 2 plastic covers at front bottom sides of cabinet, and remove 2 screws located in holes, you will need a nut socket to remove them.
Remove inlet hoses, and undo screw at top where the hoses connect to, prize up the plastic retainer that holds the valves in place.
Remove screws at top of cabinet that hold the 2 halves together.
Then lift rear half of cabinet clear of the front.
At the bottom rear you will see the heater element located.
Undo center nut and remove element..
Fit back all parts in reverse order.
Not an easy job. Good luck.
Plz rate my solution.

Cycle stops at water heating. Water gets too hot and cycle can only be moved on manually. Is this indicative of a faulty thermostat? Where is the thermostat located

Sounds like it.
It is actually called a thermistor, and is located at the end of the heater element.
Which in turn is located at the rear of the washer drum.To gain access, remove lower rear cover of washer, and you will see the element and thermistor there.
To remove the thermistor, slacken the centrt nut securing element, and withdraw the thermistor.
Fit new thermistor, tighten up nut, and that is it.
If problem persists, then it is going to be a faulty pcb.

How do i replace heating element in a zanussi washing machine

It depends on the model of washer.
If it has no removeable rear panel, then you have to remove the complete rear half of the cabinet to access the heater, not an easy job.
If it is an early model, then it will have a removeable rear cover, and the heater can be changed from the rear of the washer.

Zanussi jetsystem turbodry 1600 wjs1665 w is not heating the water

More than likely the heater element has failed.
This is located at the rear of the washer drum.
It means removing the rear half of the cabinet to access it.

I've just spent an hour taking mine to bits. On the back there are 2 x 9mm silver nuts at the bottom, below the star head screws you removed to get the top off. Then there are two more sneaky ones at the bottom of each side panel, just next to the gap about half way along on both sides., with a plastic cover hiding them from view. Make sure you release the mains cable holder from the top of the back by pressing the plastic clips down, then the whole shebang should slide off easily.

Heating element Zanussi washing machine

remove the back, the element is at the bottom of the drum tis maybe a split cabinet, where the lid comes off the it splits down the middle like cracking an egg, loads of screws, hard to describe, also 2 at bottom at the side in the middle, behind 2 plastic lugs, when removed the back half of the cabinet comes away, not an easy job until you have seen it done if you really are stuck try and send me an e mail address and i will send you a drawing, then you will see its easy, i am an engineer of 20 years and done loads, its easy job to do once you know how to split the cabinet
