SOURCE: Drain pump removal on Zanussi FJR1254 Washing Machine

not easy.suggest you disconnect pump and power up independently as an easy way to check if it runs
easiest way to remove pump - and its awkward - is to undo the 3 screws holding the pump to its housing

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

These 3 flashing lights indicate a fault in its pressure system. Unplug the machine and take the top off. There will be 2 pressure switches, circular devices with a thin tube attached to them. Take the tubes off, block one with your thumb and blow as hard as you can down the other. Refit the tubes. Give the pressure switches a couple of good taps with your screwdriver handle in case they are stuck. Check the wiring to the pressure switches, pull the plugs out and fit them in again. If the problem is still there then it seems that the door lock is bad and needs replacement, however you can test it before replacing. If it tests fine then check the pump motor assembly. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

E31 error on zanussi ZWD 16270w1


Sounds like a slow drain problem.
It would be suggested to check the drain hose, the filter and pump, and maybe replace the pressure switch if that does not work.
Sequence:
1. open up the filter and clean it
2. check the drain hose, and let it drain out freely into a bucket
3. run the machine without clothing to see if it starts working again
4. check if the pump runs
5. replace the pump line pressure switch.
If it still does not work, consider buying another machine, since the cost of the logic board is significant. (maybe the machine is old enough and needs to be replaced)

Zanussi FLE 1416. Why isn't it working?


WASHER WILL NOT START:

Power If your washing machine won't start, begin by looking at the power source. First of all, is the washing machine plugged in? If it is, has it tripped a circuit breaker or blown a fuse? Check and reset the breaker (or replace the fuse) if necessary.

Lid Switch The main control for the washing machine is the switch inside the lid. If this has stopped working for some reason, your washing machine won't start. It's not especially difficult to troubleshoot this on a washing machine. You might have to open the top to access the switch. With the power on, depress the switch and listen for a click. If you don't hear one, the switch MAY BE BAD and will need to be replaced. Confirm defectiveness with a multi meter checking for continuity OHMS. An open circuit reflects a bad switch..
If the switch works but the washing machine still won't start, check to see if your washing machine has a special fuse for the lid switch. It will usually be inside the control panel. If it's blown, you'll need to replace it before the washing machine will start.

Door Interlock The problem could be with the door interlock. If the lights come on but the machine won't start, this might well be the cause. This could either be down to the wiring that runs to the door interlock, or the door catch not activating the interlock itself.

Timer Knob Some models of washing machine use a mechanical timer knob and won't run until the water in the machine has filled to the selected level. If the knob doesn't line up properly with the graphics on the control panel, you can try to troubleshoot the washing machine problem by advancing the timer a little. When you've done this, pull it out a little way and see if the washing machine will start properly.

Push start switch may need to be tested with a multi meter for continuity OHMS should show a closed circuit when pushed in or turned on.
The start switch on some top load washers is often part of the timer and is activated by pulling out on the timer knob. Although not normally available as a separate part, the switch can be tested for continuity with a multi-meter. You will need to remove power from the appliance and then locate the correct timer contacts as noted on the wiring diagram. On some electronic controlled models, the start switch is a momentary contact type switch located on the control console. You can test this switch for continuity with a multi-meter when the push button is held in


Overheating If you've run several loads, one after another, without any problem but suddenly find your washing machine refuses to start, overheating could be the cause. The simple way to discover whether this is the problem is to give the machine ample time to cool down, say for a couple of hours, and then try it again. If it works fine, overheating has been the problem and you may have a motor with bad windings.
By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!


All washing machines use a motor that is responsible for spinning and agitating during the cleaning cycle. Many top load brands use a reversing motor which means the motor spins in one direction for agitating and another for spinning and draining. If the motor does not start, but makes a humming or buzzing noise then it may be defective. To verify if the motor is at fault, remove the drive and /or pump belts and then try to start the motor again. On direct drive models, you will have to disengage the pump and the direct drive coupling to the transmission. If the motor starts, then the problem is with the transmission or the pump and can be further diagnosed by reconnecting each one individually. If the motor does not start or continues to hum or buzz, then it will need to be replaced

Lastly CONTROL BOARD

If the control board does not provide the proper voltage to the drive motor, fill valve, drain motor or door lock then the washer may not start. The main control board on most washers is complicated and difficult to diagnose without proper test equipment and procedures. You can visually inspect the control for signs of electrical arcing or burned or damaged components on the board. You should use caution when replacing a control board as sometimes the burned components are caused by external component failures.

Zanussi fle 1416w wont fully drain the water out and final spin leaves clothes quite wet. When i turn the drum manually i can hear the water below the drum sloshing about. What's wrong with it?


Hi.

Check for drain blockage, check position of the drain hose and check the pressure switch.


1) Access the drain filter and look for drain blockage. With Zanussi front loaders this located in front at the bottom right hand corner, there is an access door in there.Open the door, unscrew the cap and use a container to collect the water. Disconnect power before starting maintenance.

2) Check the position of the drain hose. Make sure that the height of the hose elbow is as specified in the manual or you get siphoning (water getting back from drain hose inside the tub) and drain does not end.

3)The machine has a pressure switch. It is a sensor connected to a long thin rubber hose. The pressure switch is located in control assembly. Clean pressure hose and switch. One way to test the pressure switch is by blowing into the switch, but manufacturers say this must not be done as you can damage a good switch.
The pressure switch is difficult to test in full. Testing is done either reading voltages while machine is cycling or reading Ohms at the switch with tub empty and full. For safety reasons I suggest users to avoid performing tests or maintenance that must be done with power on.

Here a page about drain/spin problem.

Start checking drain hose and drain filter.

Regards.

Machine won't restart after reset, 'start/pause' button flashing.


Hello,

When you put it to drain/spin does the pump make any attempt to drain,if not it could be that there is something stuck in the pump,needs draining manually.Another thing to try is to find the fault code.If you hold down the 2 buttons on the far right of panel then press on/off button till lights start chasing,then release the 2 buttons on right hand side.Now the first function button by the on/off button you will need to press until the light above the button reaches the 9th or 10th position this will give you a read out in the display.
E10 = low water press.
E20 = pump or filter.
E30 = press. switch or heater faults.
E40 = Door swich.
E50 = motor.
Some of these numbers can vary there are more but those are the most common.After checking codes switch off machine then back on twice to reset.

Hope this helps.
