Question about Zanussi FJS1225W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Zanussi washing machine will not start cycle.

I've tried all cycles tonight. Just put clothes in added salt and dye(planning to dye some jeans) turned knob to quickwash 40 degree cycle. Machine starts to drain water, then stops. I was expecting water to flow into powder dispenser after it drains the dregs of water in machine. It just stops.
I was wondering is there a minimum weight you need in the drum, so I added some towels to the drum to weigh it down. Same problem occurs, i.e. press start button, sound of machine starting up with drainage(checked as I pulled machine out and I put drainage hose going into sink for now, so I can see some water.
I checked water in, is okay. its connecting okay.

Dirty whites


probably your soap, or there is a soap contamination issue......run the machine without adding any clothing to it and see if it suds up or not....I'm suspecting you'll get suds...a little to a lot......if I'm right, then turn it to hot, and add a half gallon of white vinegar to it and let it cycle thru....repeat that for one more cycle...then test the machine one more time for suds without adding any cloths or products to the wash......if the suds are gone or just reduced, then keep repeating til the water runs clear
and to clean the dirty whites, try washing in cold water first, then hot..and obviously the whites with just whites, no colors allowed.
once you clear up the extra suds, try CHARLIES SOAP....it workd great and helps keep the machine clean

Zanussi timeline 1600 - after washing there is a 'grey' deposit - gunge - on my clothes - I have cleaned the filter - what is causing this ?


You might try a cup of white vinegar added to the final rinse cycle...with NO LAUNDRY in the machine. Just turn the dial to rinse. Let the machine fill. Add one cup of white vinegar. Allow the rinse cycle to complete. The vinegar will help to break down mineral buildup that might be causing the grunge.Also, have you changed detergents recently? Could it be the water in your area reacting with a new detergent?

The spin cycle on my washing machine is not working, the clothes are still wet when the cycle is finished


Make sure that the clothes are not too heavy ( jeans and sweats ), and put in the machine evenly. If the machine is off balance, it won't spin fast enough to wring out the clothes.

Maytag a112 manual on how to add bleach AND fabric softener


Hi
Choosing Your Detergent, Bleach, and Fabric Softener..
Learn what the different items you need to wash your laundry.
Liquid Laundry Detergent and Fabric Softeners
When using liquid laundry detergent, you do not want to poor it directly on your laundry. The dyes in the liquid laundry soap could stain your clothing. You will want to start your washing machine and add the liquid laundry soap while the water is filling the washing machine.
You then can add your laundry once you have about and eighth of the washing machine tub filled. This will ensure your laundry doesn't become stained by the detergent. You should only add the amount that is poured into the cup to the fill line. When you add more, you could find yourself wading through mounds of bubbles overflowing from your washing machine.
The same reasoning applies to liquid fabric softeners. However, liquid fabric softeners are added to the washing cycle after the initial washing cycle is finished. You will want to add the fabric softener once the washing machine has filled with water and started to agitate. This keeps the fabric softener from touching the laundry and will work it into your clothing better.
Powdered Laundry Detergent
You will want to add one cup of loose laundry detergent to your washing machine in the same manner you would do the liquid laundry detergent. By doing this, the powdered laundry detergent will dissolve easier.
Bleach
When adding bleach to your laundry, there is a small triangular cup in the corner of your washing machine. By adding one cup of bleach into that dispenser, the bleach will be added to the laundry at a precise time during the wash cycle.
Setting Your Washing Machine
Most washing machines have three or four cycles. For instance, the Maytag Washer I have has four cycles, regular, permanent press, delicate, and soak.
Regular Washing Cycle
The regular cycle is used for the following types of clothes and other apparel:
• Jeans
• Towels
• Blankets
• Sheets
• Quilts
• Bedspreads
The soil types for this cycle are heavy, normal, and light. This means clothes or other articles that are lightly too heavily soiled should be washed in this cycle. This is due to the washing cycles can be set from a minimum of eight to fourteen minutes maximum. You can use all three of the water temperatures in this cycle.
1Permanent Press Washing Cycle
The permanent press washing cycle is used on the clothes that may or may not need to be ironed.
Such as:
• Blouses
• Shirts
• T-shirts
• Under garments. This would be your unmentionables and socks.
• Jackets
• Sheets
• Baby Clothing
The soil types for this wash cycle are normal and light. The washing times for the permanent press cycle are six minutes to ten minutes. You can use all three washing temperature modes for this cycle as well.
Delicate Washing Cycle
The delicate washing cycle is normally used for sweaters, cotton, silks, and other fabrics that need to be washed with care.
The soil types for the delicate cycle are normal and light. The washing times for the delicate cycle are four and six minutes. It is best to wash your delicate clothes in warm or cold water. Always wash clothing that is more than forty percent cotton in cold water to prevent shrinking.
Soak Washing Cycle
The soak cycle would be used for heavily soiled clothing, such as, football and baseball uniforms. This will help rid the uniforms of caked on mud and grass stains.
You can also use this cycle if you wish to only bleach your white's once a week or once a month with bleach.
Washing Your Laundry
Choose the cycle you need for your laundry. Add the laundry detergent, fabric softener, and bleach (remember regular liquid bleach is for white clothes only.) Start the washing machine and let fill to dissolve the dry detergent or to mix in the liquid detergent.
Now add your clothes to the washing machine. Clothes the lid so the washing machine will continue to wash your clothes.
If you are using a Laundromat, put your clothes in the washing area and shut the lid or door. Add your detergent and other cleaning items in the correct compartments. Put in the correct amount of change so the washer will start.
