Not sure how full the drum is when you are using the dryer, but I have this appliance and it works best if the drum is half full. If the drum is full, things don't dry properly because the air can't circulate.

If that doesn't work I'm out of ideas!

I have a Zanussi Washer/Dryer Model ZWD 1270W. When I set the machine to wash (any cycle), it fills with water, the water jet starts, it takes the soap powder then it immediately skips to the 'drain'...

If you go to this website, they have manuals and you can ask questions also.

Just one thought. Have you unplugged the washer for a few seconds then plugged it back in? It's possible the "brain" needs to be reset.

My Zanussi zwd 1270s washer dryer keeps tripping the MCB and i have no idea why, any help?


Washers take alot of power to run. In the instlation manuel they say to have a dedicated electric line .

i had a problem with mine i had a sump pump and the dryer and washer on the same line and would trip my breakers.
You can run it off another line or extention cord as long as its rated for the needed amps.

My Zanussi ZWD 1470W won't fill up with water. I


Story could be lengthly so in brief, check to see if drain pump is not blocked and if door latch is functioning correctly.(use a multimeter if you can). If it all measures out as good, then your control is faulty. Does the water fill up to the correct level when you start the cycle? Does the motor hum when trying to run. If so check the capacitor.

Zanussi ZWD 1270W Fault Code 10


Washer dryers often have cold water valves with 3 separate solenoids. One for the main wash and rinses (which is clearly ok) and one for the condition rinse (to take the fabric conditioner down) which is probably ok too, and the 3rd one is for the dryer. It's possible this 3rd solenoid has failed.

Washer dryers need on a steady trickle of cold water running into the condenser chamber to convert the steam into water, which then gets pumped down the drain.

e10 means that there is a problem with the water supply.
a condenser dryer needs cold water to operate properly. the e10 code will appear if:
1. the water is turned off
2.the water pressure is too low.
3.the solenoid valve is open circuit
4.there is a problem with the pressure switch (least likely)

Cold valve is at the end of blue inlet pipe remove lid and you will see it.

f E10 is only appearing when trying to dry, the problem almost certainly is the condenser valve solenoid open circuit. The green solenoid on the inlet valve. Should read about 4000 ohms.

My money would be on the solenoid coil being open circuit. The coil can be canabalised from most valves although you may have to modify the connections. For simpler repairs - contact Zanussi and get the entire triple inlet water valve to swap out.

E40 is door interlock error, it means that either the door interlock is stuck or faulty, or the wiring from door interlock to main control board are not connected.

Washer dryer zwd 1480 zwd 1680 when i put a wash on after a couple of minutes it shoots down to 3 minutes and finishes. any ideas????


I have exactly the same problem, I am doing some testing with mine at the moment and I believe it to be one of the two thermostats in the heating chamber.

If you was to remove the top cover you'll find a long silver cilinder running through the middle of the unit. Looking from the front there are two modules on the left side (thermostats) with 2 wires connected to each towards the back of the dryer. These measure the temperature inside the heating chamber, on removing them the heat stays on, you have probably noticed the dryer is not even getting hot so the moisture sensor won't pick up any moisture in the air so the dryer trying to be cleaver with think the clothes inside are dry and finishes the cycle early.

I wouldn't reccomend removing these thermostats as it will probably overheat and cause a fire risk, however they should only cost a couple of ££ to replace.

Now I've just got to try and source the parts!!
