Question about Zanussi ZJ1217 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Zanussi ZJ1217 Jetsystem Built in Washing Machine and over the last couple of weeks the machine has not been spinning after each wash, now there is excess water left in the drum, have tried the programe button to drain the water away, unfortunately thats not working. Also have tried again to use washing machine but the water is now not coming through. With all these problems would it be cheaper to just buy another washing machine. Please Help

Buy another washing machine? Absolutely NO!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. Many washers will not go to spin or release the door lock at the end if there is water still left inside.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!
