Question about Zanussi ZWF1440 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washing Tabs Every time I use my Zanussi it spits the washing tabs into the front door unit which is above the water level. However when the rinse cycle starts the water level does reach them. I have tried putting the tabs on top and in the centre of the load to no avail. Question is how do I stop the machine spitting the tabs into the door area.

Hi Zanussi do not recommend tablets for this machine as it is a jet system and uses far less water than conventional machines. it recommends liquids or loose powder to be used in the tray I know as I sold these for 10 years.

HI, i have a zanussi FJDR1466s washer which is now 7 years old and i have grey lines on washing after a wash also there is grey grunge in the door seal. Can you tell me what i should do to correct this...

Hello, W/D here.

We use bleach to clean the washer from time-to-time.

1. Mix bleach 50%50% with water, and wipe the door seal and bellows liberally.
2. Pour the remainder in the tub, along with one additional cup of straight bleach.
3. Fill all of the dispenser cups with bleach.
4. Run the hottest cycle available for your machine, and the hottest rinse cycle available. For our machine, this is the "sanitary" cycle.
5. When this cycle has completed, run a regular cycle to purge out any residual bleach.
5. Leave the door open between wash loads. This allows the moisture to evaporate, and keeps the mold from developing. This wasn't ever an issue with top loaders. Most people left the lid open! It's more of a problem with front loaders; there are more places where water can collect and pool.

IF you don't get relief by performing the above steps, you may have to replace your bellows seal (the part between the door and the tub). I have seen where some folks' smell problem just won't go away, and that's how they cured it. Normally, the bleach wash and leaving the door open will do the trick. You may even have to do this several times to get the full effect, but it's worth a try, and is much less expensive than replacing a bellows. Like I said, it usually works.

Best regards, --W/D--

Washing machine fs1255w does not respond to the programme switch. the end light flashes 9 times, every time

If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

Zanussi IZ161W Front Load Washer Can you supply this from hot water feed rather than cold water outlet? I intend to use a heat pump which will generate hot water to 40-50DegC cheaply and the HW cylinder...

Not adviseable as you will be rinsing the clothes in hot water as opposed to cold, this could cause problems such as shrinkage depending upon what you are washing at the time.

When the washing has done with the fanal spin the machine does not go to door open and we cannot open the door

hi the door lock will open providing the water is below a max level. Drum temp is lower than 40 degrees. drum has to stationery. blockages in the draining can cause some water retention to stop unlocking of the door also can retain hot water from the wash with possibility of higher than 40c temp at the end. you should here 2 clicks at the end to unlock the door if the machine is switched off it will unlock after 4 min by a failsafe device. Occaisionally i have known the machine to have hot and cold water pipes reversed causing all the rinses to be in hot water this would also stop the door opening. finally the door lock can be faulty or wiring to itand rarer the electronic itself.hope this helps

OE code keeps flashing ; door remains locked

Hello, an OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes.
there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service.
Step 1: Check the drain pump filter.
Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine. Manually drain unit through the drain hose, then lay a towel down to catch the water, and remove the filter. Clean the filter thoroughly and restart the machine.

Step 2: Check the washers drain hose.
If the drain hose is not installed properly, the washer will not drain properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine.

Step 3: Confirm that the washer is leveled properly.
If the unit is not leveled properly, it will not drain properly. The front of the unit cannot be higher than the back or vice versa. If not properly leveled, the water can flow back into the machine. If this is the cause of the problem, please level the machine using the supplied leveling wrench. When you place a level on the washing machine, the bubble should be in the center. Confirm that the washer is leveled from side to side and front to back.
you can perform a diagonal test when leveling the washing machine to ensure that the unit does not tilt from corner to corner.

Gunge is accumulating around rubber ring at door of machine

Clean with a mixture of baking soda and detergent in hot water, rinse and dry. Leave the door ajar after each wash so that the interior will dry. Front loaders have no venting.

ZANUSSI ZWD162701 washing always comes out cold - WHY?

Washers are meant to rinse in cold water, so clothes should come out cold.
If you are not sure if it is getting hot, then select a very hot wash, and feel the door glass periodically, it should gradually get hotter, if it does not , then it is washing in cold water only.
This could mean that the heater element has gone.
Plz rate my solution.
