My defy front loader filled up with water at 2am last night while not in use...flooding my kitchen. the machine tap is always left open, but is active only when the machine has been switched on???


the water inlet valve is faulty and is not closing fully when powered off causing a small but constant stream of water coming into the machine until it floods out the front, you will need to replace the water inlet valve, in the meantime turn the taps off when your not using it

Washeing machine not heating up


It sounds like either the cable's have rusted off, fallen off the water heater element. Or the Water heater element has failed.

For the age of it, you can either replace it or get it fixed. I would personally get a quote first for repair.

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WD420 washer/dryer that is not heating the washing water, yet does heat when in drying mode. Does the machine use the same heating element for washing and drying, or are there...


There is a seperate element for the water heater. so likely to be a faulty heater or thermistor which is fastened toi the element
You really need a test meter to determine which part is faulty.

F 03 showing on machine


Yes F-03 indicates a faulty thermistor (it's inside the heating element at the back). Before calling an engineer, just open the bottom rear panel and check that the connector has not come loose (OR IN MY CASE FALLEN OFF COMPLETELY). This can happen if there is a spin cycle that runs out of balance big time. (two thin wires on a square unit about 5mm in size fitted to the middle of the heating element).

HI, My zanussi zwf1221w Washing Machine doesn't heat the water. I have replaced the heating element but this has hasn't solved the problem. Can Anyone help??


You need to check to see if you are gettring a supply to the element when it is at the heating stage, you will need a meter to do this.
If no supply, then could be a faulty thermostat or thermistor, other wise it could be a faulty programmer or control unit.
Hope this helps
