Zanussi ZWF14581w pumping continuously at start of cycle not filling

Hi,
My Zanussi washing machine is pumping continuously at start of cycle and won't progress to fill.I suspected pressure switch but new one made no difference.Pressure chamber and tube are clear. If I **** on pressure switch very hard the machine starts filling and will continue normally with tube reconnected until it reaches the same point again
??? any hints or ideas

SOURCE: the Washing Machine fills and then empties with not running a wash cycle

possible a pressure stat fault. some pressure stats have a too high water detector which turns on pump

SOURCE: Washing machine not filling with water not washing but will empty and will spin

like the anchor idea?, no sorry, this does sound like the water is not getting to the machine, so, when you turn the machine on does it make a slight buzzing noise, if so the fault is no water in the pipes to the machine (from the house), if no buzzing check the solenoids with a multimeter for open circuit (removing the 2 wires first) oh and the plug obviously / replace solenoid if needed, i am sure this will cure your problem, if so rate me please, thank you

Are there clothes locked inside machine or water visible inside machine? Either machine has not drained eg.blocked drain hose or pump, or door lock broke .please reply.

SOURCE: Error code on washing machine!

E20 is an error code for drainage failure.



Check where the appliance drain hose connects to the house drains for a blockage.

If it's onto a spigot under the sink, take them off and check both for a blockage.

If these are ok then it's likely to be a blockage in the pump.



You'll need to drain the water out manually.

Put a shallow dish below the filter and slacken the filter.

Tighten it to stop the flow of water while you empty the dish.

Once empty, take the filter out, clean out the debris and ensure nothing is left jamming the pump.

Before refitting the filter, put the machine on drain or spin and listen at the filter housing to see if you can hear the pump running.

If you do, fit the filter and try the machine again.

Zanussi washing machine zwf14581w . err e40


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Zanussi's 'E40' states 'door open, interlock, wiring or main PCB'. Hopefully it is just a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention.

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Zanussi washing machine zwf14581w . err e40


Hi.

Error 40 means : "Door Error"

When you get error 40 it is usually because of a defective door interlock.

Try disconnecting power for five minutes. If the error comes back the parts to be tested are door interlock, wiring or main PCB. The defective part must be replaced. Parts and quote on repair can be obtained contacting Zanussi customer service at the number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

Cycle starts, continual humming, no wash, no movement, just humming noises. Have to stop the wash.


If it hums from start, and it is filling fine from inlet valve, then the problem is usually timer control board or motor control unit board/motor failure.

If it gets stuck on filling forever, check also the pressure switch.

Parts must be tested before replacement.

240v 50Hz Zanussi zwf14581w wont start code EH1 with 220v 60Hz


Hi,
EH1 is a fault code that relates specifically to the frequency of the electrical supply. The power board is designed for 50Hz and will notice if it does n't get what its looking for.
You may be able to purchase a new main PCB that works with a 60Hz supply. You would need to contact Electrolux to ascertain whether this would be possible.
