Model NFW7200TW Washer wont fill with water

Are you sure you have both hot and cold water connected? Try turning the water valve on, if you don't have hot water make sure you choose cold cycle. That's the first place I'd start.

Zanussi washing machine zwf14581w . err e40


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.

E40 error door light flashing and clicking noise

E40: Door open, Interlock, wiring or main PCB most likley going to be faulty door interlock.

Turn the power off, unplug the machine and take the top off your machine and on the front right of the machine there is a plastic case with lots of wires.

Put the wires out one block at a time, keep putting them in and out, this will help the connection to seat.

Try the machine again and the problem should be solved.

If not you may need a new board.

My washer has an F dl problem?

Fdl is a code that indicates a door lock error. The clicking sound that you hear is most likely the door lock. This error occurs because the door cannot be locked. The door will try to lock six times before displaying the error code. You have a faulty door lock switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

    Whirlpool Duet Sport not running it makes clicks and it grinds

    A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth.=======
    It's noisy Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

    Error codes

    f dl refers to a bad door lock. do you hear a faint clicking noise when you try start the machine and after maybe 30 secs of clicking the" fdl "comes up???or perhaps the door makes the noise to lock but never does lock,in which case sounds like a bad latch assy.. although the fault for the door latch it could also be the CCU not energizing the door lock. try taking off the top of the unit by removing the 3 screws along the back of the top assy (they are torx 20 screws) form there youll see the main control board mounted to rear wall and if you look straight down the right front side youll see the wiring for the door lock itself. disconnect power to unit!!!!! first unplug and replug all the wire harness on the door latch and then also the pink wires on the module itself, maybe just a loose connection. try it now see what happens
