Question about Zanussi WJS1397W Front Load Washer / Dryer

Open Question

Zanussi WJS1397W Wont Spin/Programme Selector Stalls.

When using this washing machine, it keeps stalling on the beginning of programme "F" (hand rinses). If i manually move it along to the next programme "G" (spin cycle), it just stalls at the beginning of the cycle (again) and the drain pump keeps spinning. Yes, the filter is clean, water does come out of the drain and the drum does move under its own power witout any problems.

I hope its not part of the electronics - they are properly expensive.

My only thought (i havnt taken this washer aprt for this problem yet) is that i could be a dead water level sensor that keep telling the washing machine that its still full of water.

Any ideas?

Most possible reasons that the door switch or timer unit is defective. The dishwasher should heat the water to about 55 C as the heating cycle starts. In these cycle, the dishwasher pauses after has filled with water and wait for the water to reach the temperature. If the water isn't being heated (because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. if you think that a user manual may help you more, it can be downloaded ($8.95) at url: http://www.download-manual.com/shop/Zanussi-FLE1416W-User-Manual-pr-8261.html

check the drain hole when you start the machine if the water is coming back out , if yes that means your dump valve is bad.

SOURCE: Zanussi FJS1225W won't spin

motor brushes can be replaced in situ but you will find it easier to remove the motor.

take the rear cabinet half off and undo electrical connections to motor. motor is held in by 4 bolts. undo and motor will slip out.

brushes are located towards the end away from the pulley and held in by 2 small bolts. undo, withdraw brushes and see if badly worn

easier way is to check continuity across the brushes with the motor in situ using a multimeter

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.

Turn the programme selector dial to the required programme.
The selector dial can be turned either clockwise
or counter-clockwise. The green pilot light of the button
9 starts flashing: the appliance is now switched on.
If you turn the programme selector dial to another programme
when the appliance is working, the red pilot light
of the button 9 will flash 3 times and the message Err is displayed to indicate a wrong selection.
The appliance will not perform the new selected programme.

dial to the position .
To cancel or change a running programme, switch the
appliance off by turning the programme selector dial to the
position
. Select the new programme by turning the selector
to the desired programme. Start the new programme

I have a Zanussi WDA1055W washer/dryer. I never


the water should only be filling up to approc 2in above the drum bottom...........look inside when its filling..........if its filling to nearly the bottom of the door you either have a faulty pressure switch or grit/dirt in the internal filter.......as a result the machine will not spin if there is too much weight in the drum

Zanussi ZWF1437W washing machine - wont start


The error message "Err" usually indicates that the wash program and option are not compatible. 40 degrees and 900 rpm Spin should be o.k.. I would try another wash program with no special options and see if the problem goes away.
