  1. Sudden leak under machine. With machine unplugged, a small bowl of water added to the drum comes straight back out. Photo of where I think it's coming from is attached. Can anyone help with the fix / part needed? Cheers Steve
  2. I have an older Zanussi ZWF 5140P washing machine that makes a pretty curious sound while draining, the sound stops when the draining is finished. I have a video attached, sound starts 15 seconds in. Should I look into getting the pump replaced, or is it fine? Otherwise the machine runs fine, and washing programs do finish. ZANUSSI.mp4
  3. Sorry if this seems long winded... We have had this machine for nearly 3 years now. However it is in almost constant use with nearly 3 year old twins in the house! This week, it seems to have packed in... When putting on a load, it performs the wash cycle, however it stops when time to drain and spin but doesn't display any errors. The machine drains but no spin occurs. We called an engineer to inspect and he thought I was being silly: "make sure you don't have any clothes caught in the seal" (we never had that issue). He then ran a service and diagnostic but found no issues as the machine filled up as needed, drained and spun slowly and quickly when empty, etc. I'd cleaned the filters myself prior to the engineer's arrival and ran a cleaning cycle as there is a foul smell from the machine (possibly due to the rotting lint). Once the engineer had left, I attempted to put a load on to spin/drain and the machine now stops at 14 mins remaining of the 16 minute cycle. No error messages are displayed. Called the engineer back who said that the fault might be with the 'PCB'. He advised to un-plug the machine for 30 minutes to cause a reset and try again but that the part would need replacement or replace the whole machine. Is there anyone with similar experience?
  4. I'm about to buy a new washing machine . initially I was thinking to buy a samsung washer dryer or just a samsung washing machine around £400 to £600 range but after some research I realized there has been lots of problem with their Drum Spider arm corrosion right after their warranty expires . Then I decided to go for german models which they are also expensive such as Bosch but i'm not sure how reliable and good they are nowadays compare to korean one such as samsung . I know Bosch is one of the top brands but are they still produce the good quality washing machine ? Also is there any other good brands out there within my budget range ? Anyone have an advice or recommendation? Thanks
  5. I have a 4 year old zanussi lindo 300 and it has started making an unusual noise. The noise is a ratting sound which happens at the very beginning of the cycle, before the drum even starts moving or water comes in. Once the water starts filling and drum starts moving the noise stops and everything continues normal. I am worried that if I don't address the cause of the rattling sound, more damage will occur. I've searched endlessly on Google but can't find anything specifically relating to noises before the drum starts moving. I have attached a short video where you can hear the noise quite clearly. Any ideas would really be appreciated! Thanks in advance. 20201205_130526_1_2.mp4
  6. Hi we've just bought a brand new zanussi washer dryer Z716WT83BI from ao had previous zanussi washer dryer for over ten years nice and quiet reasonably reliable apart from pumps wearing out. This one however is driving us round the bend whenever we use the dryer the pump runs constantly. Is this normal? Heres a vid we uploaded to youtube. https://youtu.be/kgD7Hmcuquc Any ideas? Thanks Steve
  7. Hello community. I have a Zanussi ZWT71201 WA. It was making an unusual noise, so I removed the back shield and looked inside the machine. I found the drive belt was disconnected from the motor and was completely wrapped around the neck of the drum pulley. I replaced the belt, but it continues to slip off. There is no play on my drum pulley and the center bolt in it is tight. From the front, the drum has little independent movement when I lift it up. I would like to make a scientific diagnosis before I start buying and changing parts. Your advice and guidance is welcomed. Interestingly, I had a look on espares and there is no listing for bearings for my model. P.S. Can anyone point me to a service repair manual for the Zanussi ZWT71201 WA? Thanks Mike
  8. I have a zanussi that isn’t draining fully. I tried to clean the filter but I cannot get it out. A cap comes off but do I need some sort of jig to get the filter out? Or what am I missing?
  9. Hi, I have a Zanussi ZKG7125. I have 2 issues, one which is bearable but the second happened this morning which needs immediate attention. Firstly on a drying cycle the machine works for about 30-45 minutes before skipping the remaining any remaining time on the cycle and then shows 0 on the countdown. No obvious error codes are shown on the display, I have read elsewhere something about holding down the start button and turning the program dial counting the red and green flashes for further information? I think logically this could be either an overheating problem or a thermostat issue? It would make sense if it was some form of safety override. I have pulled the machine out from under the worktop to allow for increased airflow to check if it was overheating caused by its proximity to the kitchen units - but this didn't seem to help. The reason why I think it is to do with heat is that after running one drying cycle, the second or third always reduce in duration before it prematurely ends. This morning however the door will not open, and the handle itself feels loose with no resistance. I hope it is just the handle mechanism which I am confident I could replace myself. I need to have a look this evening and find some wire or similar to try and free the door latch. I ran a few spin cycles and gave it a bang to check it was not the locking mechanism sticking...when initiating the spin cycle I can here the lock click in so I don't think the issue is with the lock itself. I will also try the turning it off at the wall and seeing if the lock releases. I would appreciate any feedback from experience with these two issues. Thanks Harry
  10. I have a Zanussi WDT 1085 which is a combination washer-dryer. Yesterday I turned the knob to put on a 'dry' cycle but the knob came unaligned with the dial that shows the different cycles and turned on a wash instead. Now the washer-dryer is full of water. I want to put on a spin/drain cycle but I'm afraid to turn on the dryer by accident. So, two questions. First, will it break the machine if I turn the dryer cycle on while it's still full of water? Second, does anyone know how to realign the knob? I think it is only pulled to the left about an inch but I can't be sure. I have attached a picture of the knob for reference. Thank you so much for any help!
  11. Hi I hope someone can help me, I have a Zanussi ZWF1210 that's just turned ten & it's developed a metallic scraping/squeaking noise when the drum is turning in either direction, the drum can also be moved away from the door seal very easily & I think it might be worn bearings. The machine has had very heavy use over the last ten years & may have been overloaded at times. It's never had underwired bras in it & trouser pockets have always been checked for coins. Apart from this noise the machine has worked without fault for the last ten years & would be sad to part with it, if it's the bearings is it an easy fix & would I be better off buying a new machine? I'd be grateful of any help & advice.
  12. Hi. Wondering if anyone knows what a washing machine error code means. Zanussi FX1265W. Error code is 3 flashes / beeps. The manual only lists 1, 2 and 4 flashes / beeps. I've Googled and searched here without any luck. I've done some basic tests / maintenance. i.e. The machine will run it's draining program without error. It will run it's spin program without error. I've drained the machine completely and cleaned the pump. I've checked that the water inlet is unblocked. I've checked that the waste is draining okay. If I try any wash program, then the machine will fill (as normal) but then drain straight away with the 3-beep error rather than spinning the drum. (I can see water filling in the drum when it's empty, so water is going in. The drum spins just fine on the spin program, so it can't be that. It drains just fine, so I don't think it's that.) Extra info: either the machine tripped the RCD on the house's fuse board or it was running when the RCD was tripped by something else. It was further through a program that it's getting now (because the powder had been consumed, whereas it's not being consumed now). I've tried turning it off and on again at the socket. Any ideas? Thanks!
  13. We had a brand new zanussi delivered two days ago. I hooked it up without removing the transport bolts. It went into the spin cycle and began lurching. We turned it off, and now instead of starting the spin cycle, it just has a soft hum. The machine also stops randomly. We contacted the online store we bought it from and they are going to charge us for the visit and repair, so I'm going to try to fix this myself. Does anyone have any tips on what the problem might be or where I should focus my attention?
  14. Hi all, I have just bought a Zanussi WDJ1667W second hand (washer dryer). When I first tried it yesterday, the washing programs seemed to stop just before the last spinning part. The start button would blink and the machine would not resume. However, when I tried draining, spinning and drying separately, all were a success. I left the problem for the night but today, the machine will not do anything. It will make a repetitive noise at the beginning of the cycle, then stop as before. When I ask for the last error code, it gives me the error 33 which seems to be an error due to the pressure system. Would anyone of you know how to fix this error? Thanks! Agathe
  15. Hello all im having a problem with my zanussi 1217w i know its pretty old now but its a great machine. When it was spinning it was getting pretty noisy i think it was maybe the bearings going. Now when we start it it fills with water then skips to drain then nothing. If it is the bearings that have gone how do i find out and is this a correct thinking. Thank you for any help offered im about to open it up and have a look inside good luck to me lol. P.S Merry christmas all.
