Question about Zanussi ZWF1430W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Zanussi zwf 1632 w

I have this model washing machine (zanussi zwf 1632 w) and when I turn it on, all the lights come on and flash 3 times and then it resets to a programme and won't let you change it. When you press the start button, it flashes 3 times and then goes off. It won't start washing. In the instruction booklet, it only gives causes of flashing 1, 2 or 4 times !!!

Hi follow this Step 1: Unplug the washer. To access the timer, remove the control knobs and the panel that covers the controls. This may be a front panel, or access may be through a panel at the back of the unit. Carefully examine the wires that connect the timer to the other parts of the washer. If the wires are loose or disconnected, try pushing them into position; they usually fit into their terminals like plugs. Use long-nosed pliers to avoid breaking the wire connections -- never pull a wire by handStep 2: To test the timer, use a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the power leads to the timer and clip one probe of the VOM to each lead. The VOM should read zero if the timer is working. Since the timer is a multiple switch, turn it through its cycle and test each pair of terminals in turn. The meter should read zero at all of these points. If one or more readings are above zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.
Step 3: To replace the timer, unscrew and disconnect the old one. Install a new timer made specifically for the washing machine. If there are many wires on the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one as you work. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram showing the connections before removing the old timer. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for correctness and screw the timer assembly into place.
thank u.......................

Machine stopped mid cycle and green light flashing under green start button


Many modern washing machines display error codes if they detect a fault, but not all washing machines display a readable error code, some indicate an error by flashing, or lighting some of the lights.

Hotpoint, Indesit, Zanussi error codes

Hotpoint, Indesit washing machines and Zanussi washing machines are some common appliances that display coded error codes. On their more expensive models, they display readable error codes but basic models (without digital displays) use flashing lights to convey the error fault code.

If your washing machine malfunctions and you can see some of the lights flashing, or one or more option lights have lit up, then make a note of which lights are flashing and which option lights are lit. NOTE: the error code list engineers have only shows the option lights by number and not by name. Therefore you need to report the lights as LED 1 and 3, or 2 and 4 etc. and NOT "delay timer" and "extra rinse". Count the lights from the left (or from the top if in a column) and report as "led 1 and 3" etc.

No Option lights?

With basic washing machines that have no option indicator lights, count the number of flashes. For example, the door locked indicator may flash 7 times, pause, and flash another 7 times in a constant cycle which would indicate error code 7.

This information is vital, and needs mentioning when reporting a fault.

Try to pull out the power-cable from the contact. Wait for at least 30 seconds then reconect it again.
Sometimes that can help but not always. If that dosent help you need to let a profesional repairshop fix your machine.

Good luck

Zanussi zwf 1432 w washing machine


pcb as the signs were that the pcb was stuck in a programme and unable to change. Anyway, long story short, to fix it:
Take the lid off the washing machine (2 screws at the back) *unplug first
Locate the pcb, unscrew and lift above the washing machine with all wires in tact.
Locate the wires that are coming out of the back of the "program" board, it should be 2 blue wires.
Follow these back to the pcb and unplug
plug in washing machine
Turn on washing machine
Only the on/off light should come on
Whilst on, and being careful, plug back in the wires you unplugged
VOILA, fixed washing machine!!

Right, have to go, got a weeks worth of washing to do!!!!
