Zanussi zwn 6120 l washing machine Error code 5 red 1 green


Your washing machine show the error code E51 what means faulty electronic (triac short circuited). Replace PCB.
A good idea is to check the motor, which in practice can cause this failure (shor circuit motor winding) and sometimes is necessary to replace the electronics and motor and than is question profitability of repair.

Zanussi zdc67550w error code 51 - whats it mean?


There are usually only two error codes beginning with E5 which are E51 and E52, which are "motor power triac short circuited" and "no signal from the motor tachometric generator" respectively.

So if you have E50 displayed on a Zanussi or John Lewis washing machine it looks like a problem with the motor. However, the E51 "motor power triac short circuited" could be a fault on one of the PC boards as triacs are usually on printed circuit boards.

This could have blown due to a short circuit somewhere else (like the motor for example). I would advise that an engineer is required if you can't see anything obvious with the motor.

Hope this helps (remember to rating this free answer and leave a testimonial comment).

Hi my washing machine Electrolux 6.5kg eco valve keeps showing E50. What does that mean? by the way my washing machine isn't working.


Oddly, the main site I use to find error codes skips from E45 to E51, but 2 other sources I have seen say:

eE50 is a motor error code.check the motor brushes are ok and check the insulation on the motor as this will give you an E50 error code (as could a water leak, dripping onto the motor).could also be a faulty wiring loom to the motor or a faulty main control pcb

E50- Insufficient heating during wash phase Either the NTC sensor setting is incorrect, the heating element has failed, there is a wiring or main PCB fault

In other words, this is a fairly generic fault code I'm afraid. I would check the motor appears clean and dry, but beyond this, you will need to do a fair degree of fault finding

Error message E50 shows when the machine is switch on.


Zanussi washing machines can sometimes display error code E50. As John Lewis washing machines are currently also made by Zanussi some John Lewis washing machines can also display error E50.

Unfortunately this is not a "proper" error code and is not listed in error code lists. It's part of the motor fault error code group and is apparently displayed to customers but when an engineer enters a special diagnostic display the "proper" error code will be displayed giving more information.

However, there are usually only two error codes beginning with E5 which are E51 and E52, which are "motor power triac short circuited" and "no signal from the motor tachometric generator" respectively.

So if you have E50 displayed on a Zanussi or John Lewis washing machine it looks like a problem with the motor. However, the E51 "motor power triac short circuited" could be a fault on one of the PC boards as triacs are usually on printed circuit boards. This could have blown due to a short circuit somewhere else (like the motor for example) - I would advise that an engineer is required if you can't see anything obvious with the motor.

Our Fisher & Paykel Intuitive Q came up with an Error Code 51, Stopped and an Alarm came on.


Hi, this is an update on what I found out about the E51 error code from Fisher & Paykel. This code is an error with the internal memory as one of the previous poster's said. Fisher & Paykel Rep said though it wont hurt the function of the machine it should still be replaced because it may effect the compliance information.

Error e51 on zanussi iz12


I've had the same problem. I removed the top lit and found some pressure transmitter and a pressure switch. I suspect that the pressure transmitter is use for measuring the waterlevel in the machine. I think the membrane loses its flexibility over the years.
I pulled of the hose from the transmitter and blowed and sucked a few times on the transmitter. After doing this the machine washes without a problem since then.

Hope it helps for you.
