Strange Water Leak On Zanussi Washer Dryer

Recommended Posts

Hi, i have just brought a 2nd hand Zanussi WDJ 1094 Jet Stream washer dryer, it washes fine but when i put it into dryer mode water squirts from the cold water valve.\r\nThere are 2 valves on the cold inlet the one at the bottom has a black hoses about 12 dia, this goes to a square plastic box at the back of the soap drawer, this has an 12mm opening coming from it that looks as thought there should be a pipe attached to it but there isnt. any way when i put the dryer on water spurts from this opening. any one know why ?

On tumble dry, a condenser washer dryer will usually have a constant trickle of cold water running into a condenser chamber. The hot moist air from the laundry will be blown into this chamber where it mixes with the cold water trickle and condenses into water. It's then pumped out down the drain by the main pump.

If water is leaking, either the hose has a split, or maybe the pathway into the chamber is blocked?
