Question about Zanussi F1045W Front Load Washer

Machine will not empty or rinse

The machine is not rinsing out the clothes. It takes in water and appears to run as normal but then it does not drain out the water. I tried using an alternative wash program and it did not take in any water. I am not certain if the problem is that its not draining or its not spinning correctly.

    Mine makes this horrendous noise during the "drain cycle", I used the tube to drain the drum then opened the filter. At the back I noticed the rotor section (with the vanes) was lying to one side. It seems that it has seperated from the pump shaft. Trying to source a replacement pump is a nightmare.... no longer available apparantly.

    Any thoughts ??

    I have a frigidare galaxy front load washer that will not empty the
    water in the rinse/spin mode. Also when trying to start a load in
    any cycle the washer will not dispense any new water. The belt is
    fine, and the unit seems to turn both directions, but there is a load
    humming sound coming from beneath the tub. I am not sure where to
    start in the repair process.

    Water will not drain out at Spin Cycle. In fact when the water is still in it won't spin at all. However, if manually drained (by front Tube) & the spin cycle is run when the machine is empty, it will spin.

  • poppy1976 Aug 04, 2008

    machine completes wash programme as normal - taking in water and rinseing. however on final rinse and spin it simply stops and will not go any further. I can empty manually using the front filter. have tried several wash programmes but the same thing happens.

    My zanussi will not drain or spin. I have emptyed out the water through the front panel and checked the filter, but it still wont spin. How do i go about taking off the drain hose to see if there is a blockage, i had a look but am a novice. Should i just go ahead and start unscrewing the screws around the drain hose?

Maytag clothes washer Model LAT6910AAW. leaks at the last cycle when the rinse water is drained. it may be the drain pump, except it doesn't leak when the wash water is drained (2nd cycle)

If your machine has a tray that you put softener in, softener is the last thing added at rinse time. If it is plugged or has a leaking supply hose, this would cause water paddles and appear to be related to the drain cycle.

Washing machine Airturbo stops at 17 minutes and 7 minutes and error code SE appears. what is to be done washing nachine is one year old only

  1. Open the filter-cover near the bottom of the machine. Unscrew emergency drain cap by turning it to the left and drain off all the water. Unscrew the filter cap and take it out. Wash any dirt or other material from the filter. Make sure the drain pump propeller behind the filter is not blocked. Replace the filter cap. Replace the filter-cover.
  2. The Water Drain error can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.
  3. If the water only trickles out of the draining hose, pause the washer and blow air down the hose, you should hear the water inside the unit bubble a few times. If you don't hear bubbles, the hose is still blocked.
  4. Drain the load, empty the washer of clothes and try running a rinse & spin cycle. You should repeat this until the water runs clear from the drain hose.
  5. If the machine still fails to drain, you may need to replace your Drain pump.

Water is not draining. I did pull out the washer drain hose and cleared but still not draining. Appears stuck in cycle. Water is sitting in the washer

Hi Friend, welcome to fixya.... This happens sometimes, usually when you stuff too many towels or clothes in the machine. Next time it happens, open the machine, and rearrange the clothes/towels with your hands.

Then turn the machine back on and start it where it left off, not simply popping the button back on, but turning it all around through a cycle and setting the button where you left it on 'rinse'. If it doesn't work simply by rearranging the clothes, pull out one or two wet towels and try again.

If it is due to over stuffing, the rinse cycle should drain and go into spin normally. If this doesn't work then call a maintenance person. It would be awful to have spent money only to find out from the maintenance man that it was an over stuffed machine the whole time;)

Does washer drain before the spin cycle starts?

Normally yes. There are around 12 to 20 gallons of water in the tub after the wash cycle, which will be anywhere from 63 to 110 pounds of weight in addition to the weight of the clothes. For the machine to start the spin cycle to remove this water would place a heavy load on the motor, gearcase, pullys, belts, gears, ect. With the water drained, the load is lighter, and much easier to start spinning the excess water out of the clothes. The normal cycles are: Fill, Agitate, Drain, Spin, Rinse Fill, Agitate for rinse, Drain, Spin Cycle and off. Imagine trying to spin a 5 gallon bucket of water over your head, full of water, and then empty. Which one do you think would be easier to do? And safer for you.

Takes almost 2 hours to complete a wash cycle

Have you ever cleaned it out? Its likely due to a plugged drain, not allowing the system to drain fast enough for the normal cycle. Check out my solution on

Zanussi ZWF1437W E23

E23 indicates Drain pump faulty; Wiring faulty; PCB faulty.

The service information also says it should stop with the door open.

Unplug the appliance and manually remove the water via the filter or front drain point if it's fitted.

Drain it into a shallow dish, tighten the filter when you need to stop the water (or plug the hose if draining via a hose) while you empty the container.

Once empty, try the door again.

Take the filter out and clean out any debris in it.

Plug the appliance in and put the machine on a drain programe.

Listen/look at the open filter to check that the drain pump is running.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
