Question about Zanussi FJS1225W Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Not sure whats wrong with my washing machine!

I do not really know what is happening with my machine. I do set everything correctly e.g

1. FABRICS- cotton, delicates or wool etc.

2. TEMP- 90, 60 or 50 degrees

3. SPEED SPIN- 120, 900 or 700

4. OPTIONS- pre-wash, quick wash etc.

5. AUTO DRY- iron dry, store dry etc.


After doing everything, setting the cycle to 2.31, the machine starts well, does everything (washes, rinses) goes down to 1.36 then stops without drying and without getting to zero(0). therefore as far as am concerned the machine is not doing a perfect job coz i have to hang the laundry to dry in the house.

Re: not sure whats wrong with my washing machine!

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

SOURCE: Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

How do I keep my front loading washer from smelling like mildew

Hi Cheyenne! There are a variety of ways to keep your machine smelling clean. The first and foremost is to make sure you are using the correct kind detergent for your machine.

Do you have a high efficiency washer? If so, be sure you should be using detergent that specifically states it's safe for use in a HE machine. There is a little HE emblem on the detergent bottle or box that clearly states it's safe for your machine, and the machine requires a very small amount when using the correct detergent. The wrong type can cause too many suds. The more suds = the more residue to get stuck in the nooks and crannies where mold can live and breed.

The next tip is to make sure you do not leave wet clothing in the washing machine, that isn't as easy as it sounds, I know ... but it is a big cause of mildew. Also try leaving the door open between washes to allow the interior to dry. With the door closed the water from the last load is unable to dissipate and will eventually mildew. But good news! Even if you've already developed that nasty smell, there are solutions!

Clean the inside of the machine by wiping the interior (drum, door, rubber seal...everything!) using bleach, white vinegar or your favorite household cleanser. They also sell tablets designed just for this problem in the same section you buy detergent and fabric softeners.
make sure you really scrub the the rubber seal, it is often the biggest culprit as there are a lot of nooks and crannies for the mildew to hide out in.

If you have an HE machine, remove the detergent tray and sterilize it

Finally, run a clean cycle on the machine by adding 1/4 cup of bleach or white vinegar to the detergent tray and run the machine through a hot wash cycle. Some machines have a "Sanitize Cycle, and this really does the job. Once that is done, air out the washer overnight: .

Another way to keep that smell from coming back is to put one tablespoon of baking soda in the drum after each load. This will continue to absorb smells while you aren't using the washer, and will be beneficial to the next load of laundry!

My GE Profile Washing Machine Keeps Stopping

Repair requires replacement of the transmission / break assembly. Unless you are really attached to this machine, it's time for a new machine. Average life of a washer is about 11 years doing 8 loads per week. Look into the front load machines, which use about 1/4 the water and spin about twice as fast, and are gentle on fabrics while cleaning very well. Please don't bother rating this, as non FixYa ratings drop my rating, and I'm sure you don't want to shoot the messenger.

How to use the dryer?

This should be simple and will not need a user manual. For silk, polyester, nylon, wool and delicate fabrics that dryer setting knob should be set to "Less Dry" or similar settings and then press on the start knob. For cotton, use the "More Dry" Setting. Now, these settings may vary between models. I am more familiar with the Whirlpool ones. Gook luck.

Series 70 prob: Recently started wrapping clothes around agitator

some fabrics are known to do that you have on wrong cycle setting there should be a setting for delicates and clothing and blankets and things when loaded to close to agitator will attract each other together so its wise when loading machine load in a circle leveled out till desired fullness away from agitator they shouldnt attract as much
