Question about Zanussi FLE1416W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Zanussi FLE1116W will not fill with water

When I switch the machine on it does not automatically go to previous programme as it used to. I select the programmes, temp spin etc, the start light flashes but nothing happens when pressed. If I do this with the door open it repeats the click noise that it usually makes once before beginning to fill. It is cold water feed only and the pressure is fine and the pipe is clear. The light on the right for the water fill symbol does not illuminat. It did once after I checked the pipe but hasn't since. I have almost all the spare parts for the machine but do not know which bit may need replacing. Help!

on normal wash cycle listern to see it you can hear a humming sound round about where the soap dispencer is, if not it could be a faulty electronic inlet valve , check to see if you have duel fill (ie hot and cold fill ) if you have try doing a cold water wash and see if you have the same problem if you have then check themostat, and then onto the more thechnical thing the programmer, the 1st couple of things you can check your self you will need an engineer to check the programmer and stat

I have a Zanussi WDA1055W washer/dryer. I never

the water should only be filling up to approc 2in above the drum bottom...........look inside when its filling..........if its filling to nearly the bottom of the door you either have a faulty pressure switch or grit/dirt in the internal a result the machine will not spin if there is too much weight in the drum

It might well be the water valves or........ the filter in the hose just at the machine. Check that one first and than check the connections on the inlet valve. If there is power on it it will be a broken valve.

Most possible reasons that the door switch or timer unit is defective. The dishwasher should heat the water to about 55 C as the heating cycle starts. In these cycle, the dishwasher pauses after has filled with water and wait for the water to reach the temperature. If the water isn't being heated (because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. if you think that a user manual may help you more, it can be downloaded ($8.95) at url:
