If you are running on eco levels, a build up of bacteria can occur. Suggest the occasional (monthly) empty wash, with soap, at the top temperature and cotton wash. This kills the bulk of the bacteria and the worst of the smells.

Make sure that the drain hose is connected correctly, and that there isn't a direct run down from the sink u-bend to the washing machine. This can allow some of the dirty water running down the sink to run down the drain hose into the washing machine. A drain hose that is connected to a sink u-bend should first go up at least 3 or 4 inches high (it may need tying up) before running down to the washing machine. Good luck!

I have an Abode 5 in 1 rice cooker/warmer steamer egg poacher/Noodle boiler, I would like to know how to use the egg poacher function


I have exactly the same as you, to use the egg poacher
1. put water in inner pot
2. wipe outside portion of inner pot, put inner pot into unit, turn it slightly from left to right to ensure the pot and the heating plate has a good contact
3. connect electrical cord and press switch to start cooking
4. let the water boil
5. break each egg into the hole of the poacher
6. put the egg poacher on top of the inner pot
7. cover the unit
8. cook for 3 to 5 minutes

this is what it says in the manual I hope it helps

I have a Zanussi 1600 Jet System Washing Machine, it has started the cycle and 4 mins into it, an E10 error reads on the display, have turned the machine off, and back on, checked pipes, can see you...


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

My zanussi zwf12070 washing machine will not do anything. The start button flashes red three times and then turns green. The door opens but the machine does nothing. Please help. This machine is only...


Hello,
If I am correct and 3 red flashes and 1 green then that is E31 which is normally a heater fault but can also be a faulty pressure switch or main programmer.This machine is covered by the 5 year major parts warranty.Does not cover the heater and it is normally the heater for that code.You can either get an Electrolux engineer to call out or your local service guy but be warned that only genuine heaters can be used on these machines they have safe fail fuse links in these elements.

Hope this was helpful.

Hi - we had this problem, and it was in fact where some blood from a defrosting pice of meat drained into the compressor condensation tank and began to decay!

I agree the smell is terrible, so a good clean up is needed but this solves the problem immediately!

Kind regards,

Zanussi washing machine drum will not go round at all


i had a similar problem with a zanussi machine
a cheap bracelet got washed with some clothes and it found its way into the drum housing jamming the drum.

it may have been cheap to fix, but i just got rid of it cos it was 4 years old anyway

i now have a zanussi ZWF1231W just past its 1 wear warranty that has just died completely except for an "on indicator light"
the store inform me that i will have to pay the zanussi engineer a Euro 90 call out charge, plus labour costs, plus parts if needed.

im a little bit disappointed with zanussi to say the least
