Question about Zanussi ZWF1430W Front Load Washer
I press start water comes into barrel then less than a minute the error E10 beeps, i press start again and nothing happens sounds like the barrel wants to move but nothing. i have to drain spin then then go to the laundry matt. very upset.
If it is draining, then the motor is ok.
If it is agitating properly, then the motor coupler is ok.
This leaves the gearcase, clutch, basketdrive(brake), basket drive block, or timer.
Raise the lid and hold the lid switch down. Start a rinse cycle and let it go through the cycle. It should drain the water, then stop the motor for a split second then kick the motor back in and start spinning. If it doesn't drop out that split second then the timer is holding it in neutral drain. You can recreate this by letting it start draining, then let off the lid switch, then depressing it again. The basket should start spinning. If not,
Raise the lid and hold the lid switch closed. Start it in spin and see if you can get it started spinning by hand. If so you probably have a slipping clutch.
Post back with any questions.
You can go to sears.com, click on parts, and enter your model number and see parts diagrams of the washer. This can be helpful.

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

SOURCE: DRYER NOT WORKING
E10 means theres no water going into the machine.Your machine has a triple water valve the 1 that feeds the dryer has proberly failed. Comes as a comp unit.

E10 means that there is a problem with water inlet. If the control board does not detect required water level after a certain time after opening inlet valve, then you will get F10.
Check that the inlet hose is not kinked and that there is pressure in there.
Try tripping the circuit breaker for ten minutes to reset the timer board.
If you still get E10, then you usually need to replace the triple inlet water valve connected to water hose. Usually the valve solenoid has gone.
The solenoid can be tested using a multimeter set at Rx1. If solenoid is good it will return about 4 KOhms, if not it will return infinity.
