I had exactly the same problem and replaced the door-locking mechanism to no effect. When I removed the main printed circuit board I also found that a single track on the board (leading to a capacitor) had also burned out. I soldered a piece of wire over it to reconnect it and it's now working perfectly.

E40 fault on zanussi washing machine is it worth repairing or to buy a new one 8-9 yrs old ?


A Zanussi E40 error usually indicates "Door open.Check interlock and associated wiring check door latch,check module and connections." However, what most people don't know is that most manufacturers route the poser to the door interlock through the same curcuit that powers up the carbon brushes on the motor. So if your motor brushes are worn down, the door won't lock. Your machine is about the right age for its brushes to be worn out, so I would check this out first. Motor brushes are cheap, easily available on Ebay and fairly easy to fit. Take the current brushes out, if they are less that three quarters of a centimeter long, changing them is a highly likely fix for your problem

It thinks the door is still open.

You may need a new interlock fitted.

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.

Error codes E40 andE70 showing on model zwf1640s(zanussi)


E40 is an error from the door locking mech (interlock).this is the bit behind the port hole door frame at approx 3 o clock pos,where the door striker pin goes through hole.

Held on with 2 screws and you need to remove plastic clamp from door gasket to gain access.

Check the Door Switch/interlock or the WIRING for failure in this case and repair as necessary.

My zanussi Aquacycle 1100 wont start. A clicking noise starts after I try and start a wash. I heard it could be a door interlock that requires replacing. Is this easy to replace?

reassembly is just the reverse

Door not closing Zanussi FX1265W 1200 Auacycle


Further to my previous posting, I have now got a new Bosch but I have removed the PCB from the FX1265W. I found that the printed circuit track between the edge connector and the triac has blown. The triac (BTB16) was tested and faulty. New triac is on order (£1.03). I will post again when it has been fitted and the track is repaired and if the machine works.

If its not the door interlock then the only other possible thing is the control module has failed ....

it does happen on zanussi machine.. is it making a cliicking noise the door interlock.... when you press start .... like click click....
