SOURCE: loads of slimey grey water in filter drawer and horrible smells

First of all, you need to confirm if the leak is from the filter or the pump.
You can replace the filter seperately to the pump.
If you replace the filter, and it still leaks, then you are going to have replace the pump.
I would suggest that that you check and clean if needed the outlet pipe where the water enters the outside waste pipe.
Make sure that you do a boil wash periodically, to ensure that the drum and other internal parts are clean.
Clean the door seal and dry after each wash, it helps to leave the door slightly open
Please leave any comments that may have as regards to my suggestions.
Thankyou.

SOURCE: water coming out of drawer & door

Hi Gary,It sounds to me that you have a blockage within the pressure systemas this is a classic sign. If you take the top off the machine you will see a round switch with a few wires going to it.This is the pressure switch. at the bottom of this switch is a thin pipe,normally black or clear. there is a small spring clip holding this pipe to the switch, If you remove this pipe and gently blow down it you will probably find it is blocked. You will then need to follow this pipe to the bottom of your machine. At the bottom of the machine where this pipe is fitted you will see there is a chamber and it is this chamber likly to be blocked.Some times you may clear this with a small piece of wire by removing the small pipe and poke wire through, but best way is to see how this chamber is removed and remove it for cleaning.Ensure machine is off at mains. this chamber fills with water and causes air pressure within the switch at the top of machine, which in turn tells programe when machine is full and also when empty. If this fails then machine will not turn off water supply as long as it is on. there fore when you reconnect parts ensure they are tight and clips back in place. Good luck and hope this works. Failing this working you may need to call an engineer to check switch and possible fault on board.

Story could be lengthly so in brief, check to see if drain pump is not blocked and if door latch is functioning correctly.(use a multimeter if you can). If it all measures out as good, then your control is faulty. Does the water fill up to the correct level when you start the cycle? Does the motor hum when trying to run. If so check the capacitor.

The problem is the pressure switch has failed or the hose is plugged up, has a hole in it. These are usually inexpensive and are very easy to replace. Here is a video this will walk you thru testing and replacing a pressure switch. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

My zanussi us leaking water as soon as it starts to fill. I've cleaned the pump and detergent door but no help. It's leaking from underneath somewhere


It sounds like there may be a split in the fill hose! Go to the Zanussi web sit and you should be able to buy one for a few £££. Take the top and back off your machine and you should see the hose if you follow the pipe where the water connects.

Water won't stop flowing thru detergent drawer


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
If it is doing it with ALL power removed it needs replacing. If it is doing it with power on it needs a service call to confirm that it is not something else- like the control board not feeding the correct voltage to the valve ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Fabric conditioner compartment floods with water


Hello,
Normally if the water flows out of the cond. compartment you need to remove the drawer from the housing by pressing the tab inside drawer and pull out,take to sink remove plastic plate in cond. comp. clean under tap into recess of underneath.Then clean the 3 holes I think in drawer part and make sure all outlets are clear.When clean fill with water to max level mark, hold level then let more water into drawer and it should empty itself by a syphon action.Hope This has been helpful.

Good Luck.

Zanussi F1045W Front Load


indicated low water pressure from your external supply or blocked filters in the fill hose. turn water off, remove hose and check filter in end of hose - it is just a bit of gauze. also look into the valve and clean out if needed
