Question about Zanussi ZWD12270 Front Load Washer / Dryer
I have a zwd12270w. Seven seconds after pressing the cycle start button, the machine double clicks and stops.
If I press the start button after seven seconds, the machine does not respond to the start button.
The above happens whichever cycle is selected.
The problem is with the tumble drier heating element. If you remove the top of the machine (disconnect it from the electricity supply first!) you will find a big metal oblong "bar" that runs from the front to the rear of the machine. At the rear there are 4 white wires connected to the metal "bar". Make a note of where they go and remove them. You may need pliers to get a good grip of them. Once removed, the washing machine should work just fine but obviously the tumble drier will not. This is a well known fault and it may be worth contacting Zanussi as they MUST know about it!

This has happened to me too, several times infact, very frustrating when u have to wash a number of washes, i had a basic idesit washing machine for years and had not 1 problem, agree with the solution above,- If left alone for a day or 2, then problem solves itself, good luck!

Had this problem and i can confirm a problem with dryer, we had seperate tumble dryer as well as washer dryer, so the engineer just disconnected the dryer part and washes fine! was an electrical fault from dryer!

I have no solution as such. Mine does the same. It has happened twice now following long use of the dryer function.
Both times, the problem has solved itself after a day or so being left. I cannot work out at all why this would be, but it certainly seems to be linked to the use of the dryer.
