Settings dial has broken on my Zanussi WJS - 1397W

The dial has broken on my Zanussi WJS - 1397W. So that it no longer shows what washing setting it is on. What can I do? It washes well and I dont want to replace it. Is there a way of removing the front panel and fixing it manually? Thanks, Jamie.

You can go to this site and find/order the parts to fix it. It looks like the top of the machine just pops off (held down by clips) which then exposes the control panel and allows access to fix. Hope this helps.

My zanussi washer dryer wjs 1397 w drum is not turning

It is most likely that the drive belt is broken and needs repalcing, If you remove the rear panel it will be obvious if it has broken *** there will be a lrge flywheel attached to the drum and no drive belt going to the motor, near the bottom of the machine. These are easy to obtain from any domestic appliance spares store or mail order. They are also very easy to fit.If the drive belt is in place and is reasonably tight (taught) then you may have an issue with the motor. clutch or brake.

Wjs 1397W. The water goes in OK. The

It was a bad joint on the motor control board. It was well burnt on one of the relay connections. I assume that the machine senses when the drive starts and then stops before changing the relays. Of couirse it only wend in one direction and was waiting for it to go in the opposite one before proceeding.

tilt backwards at a good angle and remove pump. i find the easiest way to do this is to undo the 3 screws round the periphery of the pump

Wash.machine won't spin

Door lock switch # 131763245 if everything else is working fine this should fix the problem. It shorts out between the motor control board and the door lock from emptying the cycle and spinning. Try running your machine on drain/spin and see if it drains and tosses clothes and then stops with no spin. If that happens then it is your door lock.switch. Easy to replace by yourself and costs $65.00
