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.

AEG 50879

This option can be selected by pressing the corresponding button, and remains in memory until the same
button is pressed again. This option modifies the phases of the programme in order to optimize performance
when "3 in 1, 5 in 1, 7 in 1, ......." detergent tablets are used:

- variation of the duration of the programme and the temperatures required to dissolve the detergent tablets.
- reduction of water exchange
- exclusion of introduction of rinse-aid
- exclusion of regeneration

If you use a dishwasher in the traditional manner (detergent, rinse aid, salt) then the Multitab function is disabled. If you use tabs that are already on the market with rinse aid and salt there is a possibility during washing cycle to add a double dose of rinse aid. From rinse aid dispenser and rinse aid from tabs. This will lead to poor cleaning results, glasses will look like they have been washed in milk..To avoid that you must turn on "Multitab" function and thus exclusion of introduction of rinse-aid from rinse aid dispenser. This function also stops the regeneration and will not spend salt because salt is already in a tabs. Also extends the washing time because tablets need more time to dissolve in relation to the traditional powder detergent.

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

Soapbubbles remain after washing multiple times

The bubbles are probably caused by too much rinse aid. If using 2 /3 /4 in 1 tabs do not fill rinse aid dispenser and turn it's dose level to 1. Make sure rinse aid cover is not open /broken and seals o.k. It's also important to check cold water is fed to the appliance and also it does some hot washes... not all at 40c. as rinse aid will stick to inside of case if machine never does a long hot wash.

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.

White film on dishes

Experience : 30 years in dish washing as a professional instructing hospitals and restaurants.
It is not necesaasry to cover the heating element as long as sufficient water is present so as to not STARVE the water pump.
Listen to the sound of water serging with the machien running. If it is contant you have enough water if the sound comes and goes then the pump is serging . either lyou have a low water level or CLOGGED strainer in the bottom of the machine (inside).

you might also open the door real fast during the wash and check for water splashing and flows---- you might get wet but this way works .(wear protective eye shields)

water levels can be raised by BENDING the tab on the bottom of the float which controls water level...much like a toilet tank float.
Also finally if soap levels are too high the soap will not rinse off regardless of the amount of "rinse fluid you use.
