It may be the child safety lock. There are often two buttons on the control panel which have to be pressed simultaneously (and held in) and they turn the lock off. The buttons should have a tiny picture of a lock underneath them.

Disconnecting the wires from the main PCB helped resolve half the problem, but the machine still does not rinse and spin. Unless programmed manually. Still, that's easily done at the end of a wash cycle. Is liveble.

Hi.

If you do not get any error code but the appliance is not working try resetting power by tripping the circuit breaker or disconnecting power cord for two minutes. If that does not work the parts must be tested individually. Start moving the appliance forward. Check inlet and drain hose at the back. Verify that there is no blockage at the drain filter, accessible from the door on the lower front side.

If that still does not work, then the parts comprised in the washing machine must be tested individually.

If there is no filling check door switch inlet valve, pressure switch and control assembly.
If there is no heating check inlet, element, thermistor and control assembly.
If it does not tumble at all check door switch, motor and belt.
If there is no spin check door switch, drain system and pressure switch.
If the appliance does not work at all a good starting point is the door switch.
Most parts can be tested using a multimeter.

Regards.

E60 - Fault in washing NTC sensor
-Washing NTC sensor, wiring, main PCB


Pressed the reset button in for 5 seconds and it stopped . The computer board needed resetting. Checked the electrical installation already twice to ensure adequate voltage and grounding.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

You can download the manual at:
http://dl.owneriq.net/2/2ff74170-aa6b-46f6-a0eb-cfe82f3eb026.pdf

I would suggest that you go straight to "Cleaning the pump" on Page 18. I would strongly suspect that this may be the cause of your problems.

The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the empty pump filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum.

Hi CK from retired Englishman in SW France,
Ay least a couple of problems (I haven't just typed all of this- most of my solutions are pre-typed and adjusted accordingly)!
Softener problem
I hope you don't mind me saying so but often the softener dispensing siphon tube gets missed when cleaning the dispenser 'cos it's difficult to see!----------->
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.
If this isn't the problem it could be that the water dispensing is not working correctly. It is easy to check by selecting (final?) rinse, pulling the drawer slightly out and seeing and hearing whether water is being fed into the softener tray. If is isn't then it is a call-out ;-0(
Not finishing spinning
Check to make sure all of the water is being drained:-
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
(If these actions have not cured the problem, it could be the control board OR the main motor. Motors will show weaknesses when commanded to spin.)

If these have assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

As with Mieles I would recommend that you run a few more hot wash cycles, the build up of gunk over the years would have accummulated - there are Gurus out there with remedies to make it smell nice, I have not tried the natural remedies yet.

Unplug the machine from the mains and leave at least 20 minutes. This should reset the machine and allow the door to open

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Zanussi 'E20' indicates a problem with 'draining'.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and general guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

this is often caused by tiny particles of grit getting into the threads of the filter .to remove what i do is to take a set of pliers open them then place them across the filter handle this gives you more leverage dont sqeeze them just hold them open and turn anti clockwise works everytime .but remember when you get it off clean it and do not overtighten when putting it back on.good luck

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not have the decode for E30 on your particular machine BUT for the ZWG models it states 'check filter of the drain pump' which is what I tend to advise in cases like this!
So I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not go to spin or release the door lock if there is water still left inside.
Here are my complete and general pre-typed (!) guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)

Sounds like the inlet valve is faulty, though this should not effect the wash. Does it spin?

Open the access door on the front, bottom, right of the washer and clean the filter out.
