Question about Zanussi FJS1225W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Zanussi iz 161

I have been having a few issues with this machine recently. If i put in the normal size wash load the machine will start in the usual way, but can then fill through the detergent drawer until the machine over flows.
If I put in half the amount the machine appears to work more normal but then half way through the cycle it forgets where it was in the cycle and just stops displaying the full cycle time for that programme. I have checked the water supply, the drain hose and cleaned the filter.. All are 100%. The machine is only 2 years old. i would appreciate any help as my washing is pilling up thaks to the new arrival of twins!!! thank's

Hi there!
Congrats on the twins! Getting any sleep yet?

I think the problem is to do with the water pressure sensor, or hoses inside the machine.
This sensor determines when there is enough water in the machine, and turns the valve off.

If you are competent to have a look, then continue -

Isolate supply and turn off water connections -
Remove the lid by removing screws at the rear, and slide back.
Check the air hoses that are near the drawer area. It is not uncommon for one to just come loose, or rip.

Reassemble and turn on to check opperation.

If this assists you, please spare a moment to rate as Fixya! as I would apreciate it. Thank you.

If not, contact me again for further items to check.

Have a look at the beginning of the tread, and it will become obvious that it is left or right hand.

Hi I Have a IZ 161 W goes through all cycles until spin starts in slow spin but thats it and the time does'nt move basically it is not spinning to full speed . appreciate any advice regards Sarah


The speed of spinning in the washer depends on the weight of the linen in the machine. if the machine is not fully loaded it will create an inbalance and the motor control unit will sense this and hence spin at a low speed. Solution is to ensure that the machine is fully loaded with enough linen.

Fitting a new door seal


unplug machine. Pull off retainer clip from the front , with both hands inside push up the seal untill its free. Then with the new seal apply washing up liquid to the gap on the seal. And fit this is fiddly. Then pull the spring you removed to loosen abit and with a screw driver to keep it in place throught the door lock thats why youve unpluged it. strech the spring around. the ease on the front part of the seal and replace the clip. put on a wool wash to check for leaks. appliance doctor
