Question about Zanussi FC1200W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Hi my zanussi 1221w washing machine stinks. I regularly empty and check the pump filter and the emergency drain. I have used calgon, bleach 95 degree empty wash cycle but it smells like there is a dirty stagnant mop in my washer still. I have the machine on its side and was hoping to find something underneath that might solve my problem but I cannot see anything untoward and need to know if I should remove a particular part to check further. I am clueless with what everything is. Please help

Check the door boot just inside the door for dark spots on the gray rubber boot and the drain hole in the boot it can grow mold where the water stands in it from previous washings and this mold will smell like raw sewage from all the soap and softener that aids in mold growth

and is the drain system fully clear and the pump working

check obvious things looks plugs or bad connections {blasted to carbon and melted thru resistance build up over time}

other than this please post more details of the lights on etc
this could be lack of current to drive the motor fully
bad brushes on the motor or a bad capacitor...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine but see if these guidance notes help---------->
-------------------------------------
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Machine clogged and rust and stink


to help clean the unit, do a large load of whites, extra bleach, extra-super-heavy-duty wash, hot wash and hot rinse. many small loads sometimes cause the unit to "smell up"

Zanussi washing machine won't start E10, E40 & E50 at times


It was suggested that the pump had failed and taken out the programmer with it - expensive! Wife wouldn't wait, and bought new machine. Problem almost solved - anyone want an out of order washing machine?

Zanussi ZWF1437W E23


E23 indicates Drain pump faulty; Wiring faulty; PCB faulty.

The service information also says it should stop with the door open.



Unplug the appliance and manually remove the water via the filter or front drain point if it's fitted.

Drain it into a shallow dish, tighten the filter when you need to stop the water (or plug the hose if draining via a hose) while you empty the container.



Once empty, try the door again.

Take the filter out and clean out any debris in it.

Plug the appliance in and put the machine on a drain programe.

Listen/look at the open filter to check that the drain pump is running.
