Question about Zanussi Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi I've got a Zanussi Aquacyle ZWF1632W 6 kg Product no. 914521110-02. I am trying to take the front filter out to clean it. There is a screw thread, but it doesn't want to come out. Should this come out?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Had the same problem with our Bosch, cap would not even turn!
Suggestions-
pour anticalc/limescale fluid into any gap there is around the cap. Empty the machine and you can switch it off providing the door is open! Then pour the contents of at least 2 sachets of proprietary anticalc powder/liquid into the drum direct together with a kettle full of boiling water. Leave overnight at the very least. The following day run just a spin cycle as then there will be no water diluting the mix. This mix will go through the filter and motor and is likely to help release the filter/cap. If you feel like it, do the overnight again. If nothing else it will ensure that the heater element is clean!
I had to spend a couple of hours gently turning the cap back and forth until it finally released its hold- but the filter did not remain attached to the cap by its rubber ring. More patience, anticalc fluid and all was revealed!
I now run an anticalc clean regularly............which reminds me..............!
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I have a Zanussi 1200 fj 1254 when I turn on the machine and it starts to fill with water...water starts to pour out of the fluff filter mechanism never mind how tight we try to do it up ... any ideas ??


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I suspect there is either limescale in the thread of the filter plug OR behind the filter itself and this is stopping the plug from being screwed home completely. Remove the plug, pull out the filter, clean filter compartment all round, especially at the back AND ensure the plug thread is completely free of limescale ;-0)

My Dyson pet is overheating and shutting off autimatically. cleaned filter what else?


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14 Animal. Like most Dyson cleaners, your DC14 is equipped with a safety device which shuts off the cleaner if it starts to overheat. If you've already washed the filter, it may be overheating due to a blockage. The easiest way to check for and remove any blockages is to follow the steps shown in our online guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=626&product=DC14-ANIMAL_US


Although you've already cleaned the filter, you may find it helpful to take a look at the video linked below to ensure you're doing it correctly. The filter should be washed in cold water without any detergent, at least once every 3-6 months. Always ensure it's totally dry before replacing it - this may take up to 12 hours.

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1461&product=DC14-ANIMAL_US


By clearing any obstructions and washing the filter, you should be able to resolve your issue without further assistance. However, if you've followed these steps and are still concerned, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US). One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you and recommend the best course of action.

Kind regards,

Jack

My Zanussi Jetsystem Timeline washer/dryer starts its wash cycle, but when it comes to draining, it wont drain and flashes E20.


Have you taken the filter out at the front of the washer and cleaned it. Mine wouldn't drain but once I did that it worked ok.
