    I have screwed the filter cap back on tightly after cleaning the filter.

    I think that the little hose next to the filter has come out of place!!!

Make sure that you have screwed the filter back in tight, and also check that there is no dirt or anything else round the filter seal to stop it sealing proerply.

I just had the same problem last week after cleaning out filter. I replaced the filter but the problem continues.

I would like to know if it is easy to solve this problem or I am going to have the same problem again. It maybe a better idea to buy a new one.

My zanussi us leaking water as soon as it starts to fill. I've cleaned the pump and detergent door but no help. It's leaking from underneath somewhere

It sounds like there may be a split in the fill hose! Go to the Zanussi web sit and you should be able to buy one for a few £££. Take the top and back off your machine and you should see the hose if you follow the pipe where the water connects.

My washine machine is displaying the code e20 can you advise the model is ZWF1640W

The manual says this is due to a blockage.
Check your hoses, make sure they have not been squashed / blocked. If they are OK, check the filter at the front of the machine, it's under the flap. Careful, when you open the cap a lot of water will leak out, so be prepared with a tray or something.
Losen the cap, let some water drain then empty the tray, keep going then eventually pull out the filter. Clean it out completely and refit. Test the machine, it should work ok.

Washing machine model zwf14070w1. Machine is flooding from underneath, drum is making loud grinding noise when rotating, and filter is full of what appears to be white synthetic fibrous material, which we...

Noisy machine is due to improper or fault in the drive of the motor and agitator assembly . You might have to remove this unit and overhaul , maybe the bearings or hub need a change.
Also try to use some lubricating oil on the moving shaft so as to lubricate and reduce the noise.
The filter clogging is the fiber that comes from the clothes while it is tumbled and in a period of time will accumulate. you need to clean them occasionally.
the flooding is due to clogging of filter of the drain and resulting in leaks . Check the drain pump/valve, check the hose fittings and make sure these are tight. check the inlet pipelines for leak and the washer door gaskets.

It is leaking water from the bottom as it washes

Plug off the mains. Open up the washer top & behind. There should be a loose or torn rubber pipe. Examine all hoses (pipes), including door seal. Three pipes go from the inlet to soap holder, below the drum you will find a big hose to the filter and pump. If you cannot find anything turn the machine on (keep kids away, locked out). Run the machine without clothes or soap to observe where the leak comes from. You can either tighten the hose, with mains off or replace the hoses. Try sites below for spares with make & model number, depends where u are.

Zanussi front loader leaking

Most likely you have a pump shaft seal leaking you can buy a new pump at this site. You may remove the pump and clean with pool muratic acid, but it is very caustic you would have to put pump in the acid bath in a metal pan that you don't mind using it and it will eat all the organic buildup from the pump. However it may leak worse as the organic material may keep it from leaking too much. So I suggest you use the pump, if you use mueratic acid it is highly toxic so read directions on using it and were air mask and rubber gloves while using it then rinse off with clean water. You should put water hose in the drain pipe and tunrn on the water to test the drain pipe as well. this will make sure the drain pipe is fine. Look at the hoses near the clamps as this is where holes develop on the water pump hoses.

Water coming from bottom of machine

If this only happens when the machine is filling the hose leading to the top of the tub may be leaking. Before it fills this hose is disconnected from the water supply by a closed solenoid valve. There are two valves which feed into a common hose that comes up to the top of the tub where the water runs into the tub. The leak does not happen after the tub fills because all the water leaks out and no new water runs in. These hoses are usually very small and very inexpensive and held on with clamps. They can usually be replaced by removing a small panel near the hose attachment location.
