Question about Zanussi ZWC1300W Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Water levels I don't think my machine is filling with enough water. The level when full is never above the bottom of the door. Generally, it seems to wash ok but I sometimes get a build up of soap powder deposits on the clothes and this can burn holes. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Most front loaders never fill above the bottom of the door. Try using a lot less detergent or making your own enviromently friendly powder (I have been using home made detergent since I bought my front loader) As for the burning adjust your temperature to suit the clothing and may press the extra rinse button.If you see suds through the door you are using too much detergent. You can also pour a litre of vinegar in the detergent draws, this will help free any scale build up. If you want the ingredients for the detergent let me know.

How do I increase water level in my wfxd8400uc?


I get this complaint a lot from home owners , I take it you have just got your first front loader washer , and you don't think it adds enough water to wash anything , this is the water saving feature of front loaders
but a simple test I tell most folks to do if they think there water level sensor is not working right
set washer to auto load sense on water level , normal wash cold water, permapress add nothing to drum completely empty! no soap unless you have a auto soap dispenser then it wont start to you add some and close door

start cycle wait till fill is complete just as it goes to agitate stop cycle (plug can be pulled for this if buttons have locked out )and open door see if water level is two fingers wigth under door seal , if its close your ok if it's a long way off then contact a repair department to look at auto sense water level

When I start the washer, it fills just fine with no problems but once it starts the cycle, it gushes water from the bottom of the door


Check the bottom of the plastic inner door. If there is a crack or a gouge, have it replaced. Also check the rubber door boot for holes above the water line

Is it getting enough water?


For front loaders, they usually have the level underneath the door, they use small amounts of water, but they spin so all the clothes do get
soaked with water.

Item: Whirlpool Ultra Dishwasher Age: 3 yrs Problem: Not enough water to effectively wash the dishes. State: When the dishwasher is started, the fill valve opens as normal. Only about 1/2 the amount of...


Larry,
The float is generally for overflow conditions and will interrupt power to the fill valve solenoid.
If you are not filling completely in the time allowed by the timer, it is most likely a flow restriction in the water supply. Barring other obvious restrictions, the fill valve has filter screens on the inlet side of the fill valve, which is generally the cause of your symptoms. Be careful if you attempt to clean the screens, as the fill valves are very sensitive to debris, and can become stuck open if sediment gets past the screen. I usually replace the fill valve to avoid future problems.
Hope this helps.

I can't seem to be able to control the fill water level. No matter what level I choose, it fills above the highest level. I set it on lowest level and it fills to the highest level or above. 745G Model...


This is caused by a faulty water level switch. It is a diaphragm-like device that has a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to turn off the water and signals the timer to start the appropriate cycle. Check for any obstructions in or damage to the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Leaks water from bottom of door. Error code E7 ?


I found this and it also may have to do with the door seals...how old is the unit...if door seals get old and stiff..(not soft and pliable) they sometimes leak...after usage the heat and moisture may cause them to swell and or become soft thereby sealing better...but this is what I found in the user manual.

Machine displays "E7" on LX30 model or "CLEAN PROBE" on LX40 model.
1. Clean water sensors inside tank.
It suggests contacting Hobart if this fails but I also found this problem is associated with fill issues...as in an E4 error...this what you do in that case....

Machine won't fill or won't fill high enough(LX18, LX30 display shows "E0," "E2," "E3," or "E4")

1.Low water pressure — check for clogged hose strainer; check that site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures.
2.Make sure probes are clean.
3.No water pressure — main water supply valves may not be working.
4.Drain valve open - turn machine off to drain machine, then on. Repeat twice (this assists in clearing any drain valve obstructions). Wait for machine to reach READY mode and press WASH. Slowly open door several seconds later and note water level. Close door; 30 seconds later, open door slowly and check that water level is the same as it was. If not, repeat the
OFF-ON procedure.
5. Delime machine.

Good Luck and I hope this helps...let me know if it doesn't and i am sure I can get to the bottom of it...thanks for rating my effort...the Fang.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9400 Water Level Seems Too Low


Scott,
Believe me, if the water level were ever several inches above the glass, you'd know about it 'cause it would flood your laundry room. Seriously. See? That rubber door boot/seal is not water tight (like a submarine) when the door is closed and locked, it's water "resistant".

Front loaders often appear as though the level is low, but they are designed this way. The clothing actually tumbles through the water as opposed to soaking in water like a top loader.

All of that to say that you have nothing to be concerned about. Your water level is fine.

SG

p.s. If your water level switch had failed, as you suspected, the water level would be too high and leak out the door.

I have a 4 year old Maytag Performa washing machine. Regardless


Hi!!! You seem to have a bad water level switch..If you turn on the water and water just fills in and doesn't stop then you have a bad water level switch..If you just turn it on and water enters then you have a bad water valve..Good luck..

Not enough water


run the machine empty. if the water comes to the bottom of the glass window, you're fine. No you don't need to see the soap suds either, too musch soap will cause the machine not to function properly and won't spin out all the water
