Question about Zanussi ZWF1430W Front Load Washer

Zanussi model FA1035E

Sorry for posting here but rather desperate & friggin' annoyed with machine I bought in Spain for our holiday home. 2 yr guarantee. Trouble was from the very start, told shop, they kept messing us about with saying engr was coming but he didn't come when meant to on numerous occasions & we live in the UK so were not there if he showed up other times. Guarantee ran out so we've had English engr come out to advise. Basically, what happens is we pit it on cottons 40 wash, the long one & after washing the thingseems to want to drain as we hear drain noise but it goes into a mad spin then stops abruptly. Does it again after few mins. Generally, it then won't let me drain manually. HOWEVER, as we found with English engr helping us it does work on the rapid wash. Engr says he feels it is overheating on longer wash & sensors are not then working. On 30 mins rapid wash it's ok. Any more thoughts ? Thanks.

    Not a solution to MY problem though.

    Having just spent almost a month in Spain we managed to just use the rapido wash function without the machine malfunctioning. We used the washer around 5 times without it playing up.

    I have a 5year old Zanussi FA1035E.
    The door will not open.
    I drained some water out with the emergency emptying hose and checked the filter. Since then I have run a number of programs ranging from rinse and spin to a full program.
    All programs seem to have run through properly, but the door remains locked with the washing inside.
    any advise on what to try next ?

    The finish LED flashing 4 times indicates that the door is not closing. It seems to click shut firmly so may be a switch problem. Has anyone managed to fix this?

Just to let anyone know that releasing the door lock on the FA1035E was quite easy, after unplugging the top came off after removing 2 screws from the back ,
after that it was possible to get my hand down to back of lock , after a couple of probes with a screwdriver into the lock and then some moving of the lock casing it came free. It has worked perfectly since then

I bought a Zanussi ZKG2105 less than two years ago and all of a sudden it would not switch on. Checked everything, the fuse, the power outlet and the filters, everything seems fine but it just would


Try replacing the temperature sending unit in the back of it. Just 2 screws hold it on and 2 wires connected to it. It's just a round button style with a plate and 2 holes for screws to attach it. If it's bad, you'll get no heat to the element. Runs but no heat tells you this is the problem.

Hi 'wagenaarf' from retired Englishman in SW France,

Please do not take this the wrong way but you appear to have the wrong idea of for what the FixYa forum(s/fora?) are here. A Forum is a 'place of public discussion' rather than a complaints department, sorry ;-0)
They are just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web. I'm also sorry to say that you have actually posted to the washing machine forum rather than one which would normally handle sewing machines.
Also members on Fixya are not 'affiliated' to, or representative of, any manufacturer at all, just using their experience gained probably over many years.

So- there is nothing 'FixYa' would, or could, be in a position to do anything about it, sorry.

What I would suggest is that you complain DIRECT to the manufacturer or contact Sears to see if it can help you.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C.

Can I download a user washing machine instructions for a Zanussi FA1025e


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but this forum does not supply manuals direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!


Good luck,

take the pipe off the small moor under the drum and check for objects in the pipe or the motor if the washer was fine before you got it maybe a wire was snapped/disconnected in transit worth a look
