Zanussi ZWD14270W - Delay timer?

Dear Guru's!

Have just received deliver of our new washer/dryer. Being failry eco friendly, we were interested in the energy savings this model offered and the fact that we could delay start a program, very hady given the hours myself and my girlfriend both work. Unfortunately, there's nothing in the manual describing this feature and Zanussi say it doesn't have a delay start. It was purchased with Comet who advertise it as having this feature. Unsure now if we will return it as being sold incorrectly but I'm wondering if it is perhaps an un-documented feature? Comet are not the only on-line retailers advertising this model of washer/dryer having the delay start feature, so they're all wrong?

Look forwards to any assistance you may be able to offer.

Kind regards,

According to the Dixons website, the ZWD14270W (1400rpm) + ZWD16270W (1600rpm) do not come with a delay timer. However, the ZWD12270W (1200rpm) does.

Set timer

Good Afternoon Faye, this is Z! Thank you for your post!

I see you are interested in how to set timer and delay start on your Electrolux washer. However, may I please have the model number? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is typically located on the upper front, as you open the door. With this information I provide you the correct instructions on how to do so. Thank you!

I have a whirlpool duet steam front loading washing machine model # WFW9600TA01. recently when my wife starts a load of laundry at night when she wakes up in the morning the washer is still turning at a...

I would assume the load in the washer is a small load and the washer has a difficult time adjusting the load to spin. I would push pause, wait for the system to unlock the washer. Check the load for how much water in the garments. If heavy, the unit has a unbalance issue, just try to continue the load. If the clothes are light than unload the washer into the dryer. Was the unit ran on delay? This may be a non issue if the unit ran on a delay and just never finished yet.
Give those a try and get back to me, I and interested in the status.

OK, I'm at my wits' end wit my dryer (Whrlpool LGR6620PQ0). Have talked with a guru here (Bran S., see: I've done elmost every troubleshooting...

My friend, I just saw your Chat request ... and i declined. I am glad you posted here. Having been there as well (with my washer/dryer), I can understand your frustration. No matter what you do, no positive result. Everything checks out and it still doesn't work. Some times you can make it go and sometimes it will not go ... no matter what.

Here is what I want to say: Does yours have a dryness sensor? Did it check out? If you have done all the trouble shooting, checked the thermal fuse, the heat element checks good with a volt/ohm meter. You have your dryer set properly (on a heat requiring setting not AIR DRY), the timer checks out and you still don't have heat, don't kill yourself.

You could replace the various assorted key elements (timer, switches, heaters, sensors (does your dryer have sensors to determine dryness) and eventually you will get it to go ... then you have a perfectly good working, very expensive, old dryer. A new dryer isn't all that much in the grand scheme of things. It will cost you $100.00 to have someone come look at what you have ... treat your wife to a new machine.

That is my free advice to you today, my friend. I just saved you another $20.00

Thanks for your interest in ... please come again.

My zanussi TC7103 s dryer , timer dial is very stiff, and now sometimes sticks when on so that the dryer just keeps going and does not automatically switch off.

i think the timer knob will be binding in the facia panel. you could try working some washing up liquid round the knob to free it up (not oil) the timer may still be damaged but freeing the knob is worth a try a new timer varies from around £37

Machine won' spin

It sounds as though the main drum bearings have failed.
If you turn the drum by hand and it feels rough or you can feel it grating or rumbling, then the main bearings have gone.
Quite a major and expensive job to put right, you may find it more econonomical to purchase a new one.
Plz rate my comments.
thanks and a merry xmas.

Zanussi WJD1257W Washer/Dryer

if computer is broken that is your timer dial not worth fixing sometimes as much as a new washer but it could be your interlock you can test this by closing door set machine to a programme hit the front of your washer to the right of the door as you look at it if not take lid of make sure power is off look down inside the front of your machine were your door seal is attached to the outer drum were u hit the washer on the inside will be your interlock switch replace that before paying out for a timer m8 more than likely that is the problem
