Highly unlikely any damage will have been done so long as it hasnt been in use for a long time (weeks).

In a front loading washing machine, most of the mechanicals inside are held between springs at the top and dampers at the bottom. The transit bolts are used to minimse how much movement can ocour whilst the machine is in transit as excessive movement could damage the springs/dampers. When they are removed, normal movement of the mechanicals helps keep the machine stable and minmises vibration.

So, the worst that happens when the machine is used with the transit bolts in place is it vibrates alot, and possible moves about.

Remove the bolts as soon as possible and it should be fine.

Zanussi E45 error


This is a door lock circuit error, damaged PCB board. Something took out the board, and is now showing the PCB has failed. The lock might have took the board out, or wiring issues etc. Not an easy job to repair, and kinda pricey. Sorry...

How much does a new PCB board cost for a Zanussi Jetstream 1600? Is it cost effective to change it?


hi if the product number is914512801 followed by 00 the electronic is £170 and has to be programmed on the machine (not do it yourself repair) . if the product number is followed by 01 the electronic is £82 and does not need programming as it is pre configured This you can do. I would look for earth faults on the heater or motor or short circuit on the pump or solonoid valves before changing the electronic . hope this helps.

I left the transit bolts in our "brand new" zanussi washing machine and am afraid to use it as I do not know what damage might have been done.

In a front loading washing machine, most of the mechanicals inside are held between springs at the top and dampers at the bottom. The transit bolts are used to minimse how much movement can ocour whilst the machine is in transit as excessive movement could damage the springs/dampers.

Zanussi de 6850


I've just had similar - seems to be a problem in the controller module - they're reasonably inexpensive online.
Undo the top-part of the door, about 5 screws across the top and side - the top section pops out, and the control module is now on the inside - if you free off the connectors (not too simple, but doable) you'll probably find some scorch marks on the PCB ... hopefully the wiring isn't damaged, and you can just replace the PCB ...
If you also have wiring damage, well, trace back and replace as required
(probably too late for the OP, but worth recording in any case)

Water not heating


probably not, believe it or not. If they actually designed a trace to fail under load, then they could not predict when it may happen. Yes, things get more load-some over long use and demand more current, but the pcb trace was probably not intentionally too small. Let's say it was designed too small. So at first startup it carries 9.5 Amps. The next factory unit draws 9.8 amps. the next unit, wait a minute, draws 10 amps and blew the trace before it got shipped. I think this under-design was a simple oversight, but one that should have demanded a product recall from Zanussi that would send a tech to every unit to install a pcb with a beefier trace. Email Zanussi and complain! Just curious...can you measure how wide is this pcb trace? It should be about 1/4 inch wide.
