Customer Question

Hi I have a Zanussi washer dryer ZWD 1262 W that partially fills with water everytime, but stops before any wash cycle. The machine does drain and spin ok. I have checked the pump cover for any objects. There are no error signs shown on the display.

Hi

Ok lets see what the error code is stored in there.

Set the washer going on a spin cycle.
Then press and hold the start button and the button to the left of it.
Keep them held in and after a few seconds the error code will come up E??

Let me know the code.

Hi

Ok had a feeling you will get this code going of the fault you describe.

What you will find is the dryer heater element is the problem here.
What you need to do is remove the top and from there you will see the metal dryer chamber going from front to back.
At the very back you will see 4 wires. This is for the dryer heater.
Disconnect them and tape them out so they are out of the way.

Then run the washer and you will find this will cure it and get the wash side working again.

Then if you use the dryer you will need to replace the dryer element to fully cure it.
But if you dont use the dryer then you can just leave the dryer heater disconnected as it will work fine like this.

Try the above and let me know how it goes. Im pretty sure you will get the wash side going from there.

Daniel, you correctly diagnosed the problem as being a faulty element. Can I easily replace the element?

Expert:  Daniel T. replied 2 years ago.
Hi

They can be replaced but depends on your diy skills as to weather its easy.

You need to completey remove the back half of the washer. Once this is off you can then remove the screws holding the element in and then you can pull it out from there and swap it over.

Cheers Daniel. I'm pretty confident with my DIY skills and will give it a go.
