I used to be a member of a mailing list dealing in domestic appliance
problems . I left it and now cannot locate it -I had thought it was a
Yahoo Group but no success so heres hoping someone will be able to help
Yesterday my Zanussi Z 9191 T wshing m/c blew a plug fuse twice when using
the " whites" programme which uses 95 degrees C wash.
I reverted to a "normal " was at 40 degrees C and everyting was fine .
I can only imagine that this is something to do with the heater part of
the machine .
Ive had it for about 7 or 8 years so I s'pose I've had my moneys worth
out of it .
thx in advnce

bottom of the outer drum is a little channel where the water would collect
by gravity. The element sits in this puddle. On some washing machines, it is
removed from the front panel of the drum under the loading hole. On others,
it is removed from the rear panel of the drum, at the bottom.
