Let the machine cycle without water or load, just let it spin just to isolate the problem if its the motor or the timer circuit. If it still stops without water, its the problem with your timer. That one needs further diagnosis. Double check any loose wires or and faulty electrical and electronic component using a multi meter tester. If you found nothing suspicious, replacing the timer might fix the issue. If it doesn't stop without load or water, its the motor problem. The motor can be replaced as well.

First try another gadget, a lamp or something on the wall plug, to see if the point is live. Then check your washer plug, could be that the fuse in the plug has blown, check out your washer wire....motor brushes can be replaced in situ but you will find it easier to remove the motor.

take the rear cabinet half off and undo electrical connections to motor. motor is held in by 4 bolts. undo and motor will slip out.

brushes are located towards the end away from the pulley and held in by 2 small bolts. undo, withdraw brushes and see if badly worn

easier way is to check continuity across the brushes with the motor in situ using a multimeter

With this zanussi model a re-occuring problem that a lot owners are reporting is the water is not filling up the tub fast enough and the sensor shuts down the cycle. You will not see an error code for this because the pcb doesn't see this as an error. Check your filter to see if it is clogged, check water connection and make sure there is adequate water flow. The key here was no error code. Just not enough water to satisfy the sensor.

That can be a problem with the cycle timer, check if water is being pumped into the machine, or it is being drained out.

    When the cycle does not advance, it is generally either a problem with a defective control timer, and in that case the timer should be replaced, or a problem with the water supply at the back.
    If cycle get stuck in the middle , and it does not drain, there is also usually a problem with the drain hose or drain pump not draining.
    Try first unplugging the machine for ten minutes, see if this reset the machine circuits and can clear the error.
    If it does not restart, there is probably need for a timer contrtol replacement.

Power light and extra rinse rapidly flashing


Sounds like a cold water supply fault which could be the solinoid valve, the water turned off, a kinked or twisted cold supply pipe or a wiring fault. Check out the error code sequence here. You never said what make or model you have (the error codes are only for Hotpoint, Creda and Indesit machines)

sounds like the pump is out. If you are certified to work with electrical, you can check power to the pump .May also be in the timer assembly too which can also be checked for operation.

Soon as i set cycle and swich on door light flashes open


hi,
The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. 


It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Thanks for your question.

The manual states that after you descale, you have to hold down the hot water button for 6 seconds, that will turn it off and "reset the timer" till the next time it needs to descale.
