    Thanks but I had already tried cleaning before I posted question. I suspect this part of programme is knackered (another technical term ! ) Thanks again for your help - regards Llaxof.

Remove the entire drawer, place in hot soapy water with a bit of bleach. Use an old toothbrush, cotton buds or something similar (pipe cleaners/cable ties would do the trick, too) to clean out all the little grooves, channels and little pipes. Ideally, do this about every 6 weeks, if you can remember.

While you have the drawer out, you'll probably notice in the drawer a build-up of horrble black mouldy gunk (yes, a technical term). You need to clean this out, and maybe use your chosen proddy thing (cotton bud, etc) to clean out the holes and channels on the roof of the cavity.

Put the machine onto a rinse programme, hopefully this should solve the problem. Good luck :)

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.

My Zanussi ZWF1430W won't take fabric conditioner from drawer - it washes and spins okay on all programmes.


Sometimes the drawer gets blocked with congealed fabric conditioner and or old soap powder, try removing the drawer and giving it a good wash. An old toothbrush is useful to get in the small areas. To remove the drawer: Pull the drawer out as far as possible, there is a small depression on the left hand side at the top of the drawer, about the size of a fingertip press the depression to release the drawer, and pull the drawer out. To relocate, line the drawer up, and place the long thin piece of plastic on the left hand side in the corresponding slot in the top of the drawer opening, you might have to kneel down to see it and slide the drawer in, you might have to press the depression again to pushe it home.

Zanussi Fla1201w not heating water


Sounds like you need a new heater. test it with a meter to see if its open circuite. the programme will not move round if the heater is gone. heater cost around 20 GBP. to have an engineer do it will cost around 50 GBP.
