Question about Zanussi WJS1397W Front Load Washer / Dryer
Hi, I actually have a Zanussi WDS1183W but it looks pretty similar to this one! Problem: On a darks cycle the machine completes quicker than it should and the clothes come out smelling nice and fresh but have not been cleaned properly. On hot cycles (whites) the machine just gets stuck after the filling with water, if you then turn the knob to the colours position it will complete the cycle but again not remove any stains. I have previously replaced the pump on this machine and it has worked fine for 6 months. The dryer part of the machine works fine, it spins ok and dissoles the tablets. Has anyone heard of a prolem like this? I am fairly handy at DIY so hope to be able to do a home fix job... could you please help me :) Many thanks, Luke

I think I have the same type of washing machine as you do. Wash is when all the clothes get agitated or mixed with soap and water (ever look in there when its washing? the water can get pretty gross looking!) So in my washer, the rinse cycle is when all that gross water is drained, and the washer spins while spraying clean water over the clothes to get rid of the dirty water and soap. I think mine does this 5 or 6 times in the cycle. Next is the spin cycle, which is when the washer spins REALLY fast to **** as much water out of the clothes as possible, so that the clothes aren't sopping wet when you put them in the dryer.
It sounds like your mom has a newer washing machine, probably a front load one, and they do seem to keep using clean water, instead of just agitating the clothes in dirty water.
