Question about Zanussi FJS1225W Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Not sure whats wrong with my washing machine!

I do not really know what is happening with my machine. I do set everything correctly e.g

1. FABRICS- cotton, delicates or wool etc.

2. TEMP- 90, 60 or 50 degrees

3. SPEED SPIN- 120, 900 or 700

4. OPTIONS- pre-wash, quick wash etc.

5. AUTO DRY- iron dry, store dry etc.


After doing everything, setting the cycle to 2.31, the machine starts well, does everything (washes, rinses) goes down to 1.36 then stops without drying and without getting to zero(0). therefore as far as am concerned the machine is not doing a perfect job coz i have to hang the laundry to dry in the house.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

SOURCE: Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

My Lg washing machine wd-1049 never seems to get anything in the filter, now has a bad smell, washer works fine, hose has no kinks, but it just doesn't seem to collect any 'gunk',

Gunk is from wrappers left in pockets, cheap fabrics throwing off gobs of lint, etc. no gunk is normal for good fabrics and emptied pockets. As to smell: do not use fabric softener use white vinegar in its place, and use powdered detergent instead if liquid detergent. Liquids leave residue and the residue leaves build ups which can mildew. I know that's counterintuitive but that is what happens.

What should the tension be when sewing sheer fabrics lije organzas?

Generally, for lighter weight fabrics, you would want to loosen the tension. Of course, you can accomplish that partly by using a lighter weight thread in the top and bobbin. Be sure to use a smaller needle, like a #70/10. If your machine has a presser foot pressure setting, you may want to adjust that as well.

I have Kenmore sewing machine model 385.19112. The stitch is loose and jumps. I followed all the instructions in the owner's manual but I still have that problem and on all fabrics. What can I do?

So many reasons for this.
1) the needle is not inserted correctly.
2) the needle is damaged.
3)the foot is not attached correctly.
4) the machine is not threaded correctly.
5) wrong needle size for the fabric.
6) Poor quality thread.
7) Bobbin case not threaded correctly.Hope one of these helps.

First time on Brother XL 2610, threaded correctly but thread will make loops and then pull apart. WHat went wrong?

try adjusting the upper tension
change the needle
if you recieved a instruction manual with the machine, look for the part that tells about what fabrics go with which needles, & the thread should move easily thru the needle eye with out any problem

I washed some very dirty baseball pants on Whitest whites, with bleach and Tide detergent. Not only are the pants still "tan" from the dirt but all the other whites are also "tan." I ran them through a...

Try this: Soak the stained clothes in a solution of 1 quart of warm water, 1 teaspoon of liquid dish detergent and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar for 15 minutes. Then, rinse with water.
If this doesn't get everything out, then wash in warm water (or what the fabrics allow) using a color safe bleach and detergent.

The problem is that there was more dirt than what your detergent could handle. If you have a really dirty clothes item in the future, get as much of the dirt off using a vacuum or by soaking alone as you can. Then wash the item in warm water with detergent and color safe bleach.

Sewing newbie needs help

I haven't seen this machine before but in general, the most common problem is the bobbin. Either it's not wound correctly, poor thread or put into the machine wrong. Other wise wheel number 3 looks like a stitch selection dial to me. Try turning it and see what happens to the needle. When you change from straight stitch to say zig zag it would move right or left. On dial #2 isn't there some writing? What does it say? In general there is no need to change the tension of the bottom thread unless you are sewing extreme fabrics such as leather and silk. What is the range of numbers on the dials? Try putting them in the middle of the range to see if it has an impact of the quality of the stitch. My bet is on the bobbin thread not being correct. Try taking it out and putting it in so that the thread is traveling into the bobbin case from the opposite direction. I'd try this after taking out all of the thread (if it came with the bobbin) and reloading it. A straight thread on the top happens when the top thread tension is too tight if I remember correctly. It is stronger than the bottom and doesn't move so to speak.

Series 70 prob: Recently started wrapping clothes around agitator

some fabrics are known to do that you have on wrong cycle setting there should be a setting for delicates and clothing and blankets and things when loaded to close to agitator will attract each other together so its wise when loading machine load in a circle leveled out till desired fullness away from agitator they shouldnt attract as much
