Question about Zanussi Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Zanussi washing machine stops when it comes to flush away the water. I checked over it and there is no signs of blockage in the pipe. What could that be. In principle when it come to flush water, an alarming piep just appear and the machine no longer performing. I use the bottom pannel as to flush water which is pretty much handy. My machine is three years old. Please advice.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter which is behind the 'panel' you refer to! So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain 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. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

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. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

Good luck!
John C

The washing machine won't drain water? how can I fix it? Its seems clogged with debris


Ideally you need to remove the pump and outflow pipes and flush them out. Also check the pipe between the drum and pump for a blockage. Back flush the outlet pipe from your hot water tap..

Hello,
You seem to have a blockage,have you checked the filters lately.Also check the drain hose and the pipe that the drain hose goes into,if they are clear then the blockage is down in the bottom of the dishwasher in the pipes or the drain pump.

Hope this helps.

Hello,
This error code relates to water pressure check that the pipes are not kinked,check the water valves are fully on also check if the little filters in the end of the hoses are cleaned.Make sure that the mains water pressure has not been reduced.There could still be a fault with one of the inlet valves but it is most probably the little gauze filters

sounds like your pump may be gone, or could be pipe blocked. to check pipe fill machine take outlet pipe at rear of machine and lay this into a bowl. If water flows ok then all pipes are clear. As water is coming through just put machine onto spin cycle and raise hose to see if water will then pump out.

Hi there

I have an IZ12 jetsystem which sometimes works and other times it starts and then clicks and stops just before the water starts to run in. I usually turn it off and try it again a few hours later and then it starts to work again. Sometimes it is the next day before it will work again. Would anyone know the problem?

Wash cycle stops


Yes you have a blockage on.or you waste pump is not working..

To check for blockage undue the filter to check.

Another way is lower the waste pipe to ground leve so any water in the drum is drained away by gravity.. if water does come out then your pump is most likely faulty

hope this helps if you need any help dont hesitate to ask
