Question about Zanussi IZ12 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Filling The washing machine drum does not seem to fill properly so that very little water is visible in the drum when it washes. As a consequence, wash performance is low and clothes often come out smelling. The machine cannot cope with large sheets.

No water flowing into drum, water supply is fine, just humms

My Samsung washer was not filling with water after cleaning the debris filter. All I did to fix it was to dump a half gallon of water into the tumbler, then I ran the beginning of the rinse cycle and it worked. It seems like the pump needed to be primed.

Drum is filling with water after each wash

There is only 2 possibilities for the drum to fill with water after it has finished.
Firstly, if the empty pipe is connected to the sink outlet pipe, the water can syphon back into the washer if the pipe is too low, thereby slowly filling the washer when not in use.
Solution is to lift the outlet pipe higher.than the bottom of the sink.
The other reason is the inlet valve is not shutting off properly.
To prove if this is the case, turn the water off at the valve, if it is hot and cold fill, then turn the hot off only, and wait and see if water comes in over a period of time, if it does not then you need to replace the hot valve.
If water stills comes in with hot turned off, then you need to replace the cold valve.
If cold fill only , turn off cold and wait to see if any water comes in, if it does not, then replace cold valve.
Plz rate my solution.

Doesnot stop filling water

To javed_iqb904, does the drum actually fill or does it seem like that water is draining out as it's filling?

To neonllama19, if it fills with the tap on and the machine off, it sounds like a defective water valve. If it never stopped filling it sounds like a defective pressure switch or hose to the pressure switch is loose or diconnected.

This sounds like a siphon condition. Remove the drain hose (the thicker black hose from the back of the machine) out of the wall. Now re-insert it back in only 6" going into the drain. When they go in too far, the drain in your house that prevents odors from coming back out of your drain causes a siphon that pulls the water back out when the washer is filling. Make sure to tie the drain hose down with a tie so it does not pop back out when the washer is draining/ spinning.
