Question about Zanussi WJS1265W Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Wont start on any program

On switching on the washer seems ok, you can select whatever programme you want but when you press the start button it beeps once and the LED just flashes and doesnt start the wash. Door locks fine and i had a load in which got a bit of water in then stopped. I managed to get the door open by leaving mains power switched off to get the washing out.
Unit just 6 years old but in good nick! filter on bottom kept clean regular and soap tray cleaned too
Can you help? Ta

    Thanks for trying Premm,
    I had previously opened up the back taken the valves off to have a look at, moved the machine around a bit... all to no avail, water pressure seemed fine, outlet hose was clear.

    I had called a man out to take a look at it but sods law happened and 5 mins before he turned up it started working again!!! No idea why. He took a quick look and checked the condition of the motor, said the brushes were fine. seems like it might be one of those intermittent problems that will probably come back at some point!

Close your faucet valve & unscrew your hoses to check screens on hoses & machine. Clean out well. Water from faucet shd be in good pressure. Refit, check for leaks. If this is not the problem change your inlet valve, it is easily done.

& rate me pl.

My whitemagic machine allows me to select a program and when i press the start button it shows PE error. This is happening since 2 days now.


This is a Pressure Sensor Error.
Remove the top of the washer. The pressure is usually located at the top. It will have a plastic tube about 5/16 in size. Remove the tube and blow down into it to try and clear any blockage. If that doesn't work replace the pressure switch.

When programme is set a key appears in left corner machine wont work


It seems that the program is locked or that there is an error , check the door switch , make sure that the switch is contacting when it is closed.
If this wont solve remove power plug from the mains and press down the start/stop button on the panel after which you must plug in the washer. It must reset to release the lock.
Check the inlet water line , check the vavle.

Bosch WFL 2872 washing machine has just started beeping (3 beeps) at approx 1 minute intervals at end of program until I turn machine off. washer is 3 years old & has never done this before - does it...


A similar thing happened to mine. I think it starts when there is a power cut or something similar mid cycle. The solution (which you would never guess!) is the following:

Select any programme - say 30 Cottons
Press and hold any function button - NOT Start Signal will sound at varying levels - release button when it gets to the level that you want, off in your case. De-select programme Good luck!

Child lock light stays on - & cant start mc programmes


HI I KNOW IT SOUNDS DAFT BUT HAVE YOU TRIED SWITCHING THE CHILD LOCK OFF? I CANT REMEMBER EXACTLY WHICH BUTTONS IT IS ON YOUR MODEL BUT YOU USUALLY HAVE TO PRESS 2 BUTTONS AT THE SAME TIME (& SOMETIMES HOLDING THEM FOR A COUPLE OF SECONDS) RATHER THAN JUST 1 TO SWITCH THE CHILD LOCK ON/OFF. IF YOU STILL HAVE THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL IT WILL TELL YOU WHICH BUTTONS YOU PRESS TO SWITCH CHILD LOCK ON/OFF HOPE THIS HELPS!

Zanussi ZWF1437W washing machine - wont start


The error message "Err" usually indicates that the wash program and option are not compatible. 40 degrees and 900 rpm Spin should be o.k.. I would try another wash program with no special options and see if the problem goes away.

Spin


Electrical module fault
The “Spin Speed” indicator and the “Start
Delay”
option are flashing and an audible tone
sounds. The display shows “F4” to “F16”.
Switch off the appliance. Select a programme
and press the “Start/Pause” button once
again.
The programme will continue.
If the fault re-occurs, contact After Sales
Service (see “After-Sales Service”).
