E40 is a door interlock fault, it is either faulty or the wiring between it and the main board is at fault,
Only way to open door is to remove top cover, and try to force the door open from the inside, if you can see the door latch, try pushing it with a screw driver or something to release it, worst case scenario, is you will have to break the lock to release the door.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

Hi! I have a Zanussi IZ12 washing machine. After I turn it on, the door will not open and start/pause button just flashes. (I can select program and press start/pause, it just beeps, but the machine do...


I've had the same problem. I removed the top lit and found some pressure transmitter and a pressure switch. I suspect that the pressure transmitter is use for measuring the waterlevel in the machine. I think the membrane loses its flexibility over the years.
I pulled of the hose from the transmitter and blowed and sucked a few times on the transmitter. After doing this the machine washes without a problem since then.

Hope it helps for you.

Machine stopping mid cycle


Hello,
Count the number of green flashes(1st number of error code). count number of red flashes(2nd number of error code).
Common codes are:
E10 or 11 water pressure faults.
E20 filter/pump faults.
E30 pressure switch/heater faults.
E40 door switch faults.
E50 motor faults.
E60 Heater faults.
These are some of the error codes but there are many variations on some codes depending on the model.Hpoe this has been some help.

Try some WD40 on the door lock on machine (not on the door) & open and close a few times. Of course the mains plug should be off the wall socket.

E40 error code


The E40 error code indicates a loss of electrical power usually but not always due to the door not shutting properly or not locking. But, since you smelled burning it could be any electrical short that blew a fuse and shut the machine down. It could also be the motor windings with the internal overload protector shutting it down.
