Question about Zanussi FJ1454W Front Load Washer
Hope you can help - I have a front loading Zanussi appliance. I repositioned it today as it was jumping around with a heavy load inside - including adjusting the feet which meant interrupting the cycle and then tipping backwards. While pausing the programme, the power cut off and tripped the mains circuit breaker.
When I restarted it, all seemed to be well..... however when the machine finally finished the programme and stopped it now wont allow me to open the door to remove the clothes. The display light shows washing and doesnt go to the end of the programme. Is there some reset that I am missing?
I've tried running a full wash cycle again but that hasnt done the trick.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
The error message "Err" usually indicates that the wash program and option are not compatible. 40 degrees and 900 rpm Spin should be o.k.. I would try another wash program with no special options and see if the problem goes away.

Door not shut Check that the door is properly shut.Faulty interlock A faulty interlock might not allow the door to shut properly. Find your door interlock here and replace, or contact a qualified repairer.
No power Check the flex, plug wiring, fuse and mains supply for faults.
Faulty on/off switch Check the power light if fitted. Replace your on/off switch.
Water supply disconnected or off If a washer dryer cannot load water it cannot start a wash cycle. Check water supply.

When you put it to drain/spin does the pump make any attempt to drain,if not it could be that there is something stuck in the pump,needs draining manually.Another thing to try is to find the fault code.If you hold down the 2 buttons on the far right of panel then press on/off button till lights start chasing,then release the 2 buttons on right hand side.Now the first function button by the on/off button you will need to press until the light above the button reaches the 9th or 10th position this will give you a read out in the display.
E10 = low water press.
E20 = pump or filter.
E30 = press. switch or heater faults.
E40 = Door swich.
E50 = motor.
Some of these numbers can vary there are more but those are the most common.After checking codes switch off machine then back on twice to reset.
Hope this helps.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Could be water still left in the machine because the drain pump cannot operate efficiently so try this-
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Error E61 is generated when the door is locked but open.
Switch the appliance off.
After 5 minutes, use a thin screwdriver to push the lock to the right and then release it.
Restore the power, close the door and try the machine on a spin programme.
If you are still having trouble after this, let me know what actually happens when you try to use the appliance. The more detail you give the better.
Hope this helps
Let me know how it goes or if you need more help.
