You are half way there.
Get a piece of stiff wire, make a right angled bend in it about 1" liong, then poke it in to all the holes at the top of the soap drawer compartment.
This should clear any blockage in the inlet jets.
This should help solve the problem.

Liquid soap/softener dispenser remains full of water, primarily on the softener side, AFTER the solutions have been dispensed and the wash cycle has been completed. The dispenser tends to accumulate...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(pre-typed complete guidance notes!)
This is a common problem with many machines.
I suspect that it is the conditioner/softener tray which is causing water to overflow so it needs a thorough clean,
paying particular attention to the sentences in BOLD ;-0)

Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-
  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit) or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
One of those should enable you remove it
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Fisher & paykel washer leaks small puddle of water after washing - can anyone help with identifying the source or how to fix?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I think that finding where it is coming from could only be done by someone there. Sorry but it is not possible to guess from here 'on-line'.
Could it possibly be coming from the detergent drawer? I have had a number of those problems. Might be worth following these instructions which I have written as a Word document, copied and pasted!-

I've had the same problem. I removed the top lit and found some pressure transmitter and a pressure switch. I suspect that the pressure transmitter is use for measuring the waterlevel in the machine. I think the membrane loses its flexibility over the years.
I pulled of the hose from the transmitter and blowed and sucked a few times on the transmitter. After doing this the machine washes without a problem since then.

Hope it helps for you.

Hi there

I have an IZ12 jetsystem which sometimes works and other times it starts and then clicks and stops just before the water starts to run in. I usually turn it off and try it again a few hours later and then it starts to work again. Sometimes it is the next day before it will work again. Would anyone know the problem?

Engry problem


HI
Its true you are using power to heat the water....
BUT
all the time its heating through different temperatures, different stains are removed. Also its agitating for all this time. If you put hot water in only it wont wash as long. Also the incoming temperature could be too hot for some fabrics. Also you wil be using your hot water to do all the rinses.
Its up to you, but, zanussi know what they are doing

Fabric conditioner does,nt go into drum.


You need to remove the dispenser from the washer completely, and clean every bit of it completely give it a thorough wash and make sure that every bit is clean.
Get a strong thin piece of wire, and make a hook in the end, and then poke it into every hole in the top of the dispenser compartment to make sure none of the holes are blocked up.
This should solve the problem
Plz rate my solution.Thanks.

hi i had the same fault, the machine would go onto pause after a couple of seconds.. after nearly a full strip down of the machine and checking the obvious i found there was carbon dust on the pcb which was causing tracking (the circuit board at the top of the machine). The pcb looked like it was burnt out, but after a quick dust down to remove the carbon and refitted back into the machine it worked fine. HTH
