My Zanussi WJD 1257 washer/dryer's drying cycle has started finishing early. No error codes. The wash cycle works fine but the drying cycle is simply stopping prematurely. You can set it to dry for 45...

Good Day,
Your washing machine is fully automatic?
the washing cycle is normal?
if yes do the same maybe it will help you.
for the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
Remove drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any small item that coz of clog up.
if your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running? the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or water stuck,
if the drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.

ERROR CODE E 60 washing machine zanussi ZWG1100M

This can be due to error in the control board. Shut down and remove plug and when switched on press down the start/stop button. If the error does not clear this can be a fault in the motor drive within the control panel board.
Remove the panel and check the connections to the motor, check the motor and the capacitor to the motor or if the motor is jammed.

Zwf1421w fabric softener wont wash away drawer just fills with water and I ahve taken the drawer out and cleaned it and the jets.

I had the same problem, machine not taking fabric conditioner.
So removed top of machine 2 screws and with a bit of wiggling dispenser drawer whilst holding down the drum easily slipped out after undoing a few screws and a small rubber hose.
Once out just a matter of separating the dispenser draw via 10 small clips. A good soak and scrub and l blasted it through with a hose pipe jet. Reversal of above and now works a treat.

Can not take off front pannal to get to gasket as the machine is a box with no pannals only small one on the back. zanussi zwf1421w. can you help please thank you.

Washing machines are hard to open. If you have a front loader, you will need to remove the top. Unscrew the rear top screws and slide the top panel towards the rear. Once the top is open, you will need to remove the front screws from the inside! Keep track of want you are doing so you can put it back together, especially the wires. Good luck!

Cleaning the pump

The filter is part of the screw cover, there is probably something stuck in the filter that is preventing it from pulling out.
Make sure you have unscrewed it as far as it will go anti-clockwise, and try pulling it at the same time to loosen it.

the first thing i would check is the motor brushes, as this can be a sign that they are worn down and in need of replacing. the easiest way to check is :-

1, remove the plug from the mains
2, tilt the machine back, making sure it wont fall on top of you.
3, looking under the machine the motor will be directly in front of you and the brushes will be on either side of it.
4, you will need a 5.5mm socket and a small ratchet to remove the screws.( you will only need to remove one brush as they wear evenly, if they are worn then BOTH will have to be replaced)
5, the brushes will just pull away from the motor, anything less than 10mm of carbon i would replace.

on the brushes you will notice two small lugs, these are to ensure the brushes are correctly lined up, make sure when refitting that these are locked into their correct holes on the motor.

hope this helps
