Zanussi ZWF 1421W power failure

My 14 month old washing machine has no power/no lights on.The fuse is ok and there is power to the capacitor. The drum is empty and machine worked perfectly when last able to use it. I am reluctant to go any further but would like an idea of what the possible cause of the failure is....?What would be the most likely cause Capacitor?Interlock?Module failure? I am grateful for any advice.

According to your description it is a failure E9- motor is not working. The temperature rises too high. The motor cut off for heat safeguard (Harness failure, PCB failure).

Zanussi zwf 1221 will not turn drum, the end light flashes the water goes into the drum and drains out when a program is selected but the drum will not turn at all. You can turn it by hand and it moves...

you need to check the pressure switch inside the washing machine there a small hose connected with the pressure switch to sense that the level of water inside the drum is ok if this hose blocked the machine will not run

Zanussi ZWF 1020W front loading washing machine - filling o.k., draining o.k. but drum will not rotate & machine will not spin - any help gratefully received

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 21:17 Sat evening,

I presume that you could turn the drum by hand? Also how old/used is it, please?
Can you hear a sound as if the motor is turning? If you can it could be that the belt has broken/come off. If you cannot hear it it could be that the motor is not working.
have the back removed so that the belt (and motor) can then be seen easily.
If belt is OK then it is likely to be the motor especially if the machine is quite a few years old and well used. Often the motor brushes wear down to the extent that they do not run on the commutator and the motor stops- or, as in our case just before Xmas, becomes intermittent. Although it is possible to go the least costly way and have the brushes changed, it is false economy in the long run. The new brushes will not bed in correctly and will only last a fairly short time (I've heard of 1 month!). A replacement motor (ours cost £250- and I replaced the belt at the same time- both were 15-20 years old) should last for many years.

I hope this assists,


John C

Noisey drum, can bearings be replaced on zanussi zwf 1421 w

Yes they can. Search for a service manual for instructions, on the net. Parts are not usually exspensive, Repairmen are. I did mine in less than an hour.
