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

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.
