It seems to be a common error code on some Zanussi models. This error code seems to be the control board detecting a wrong configuration (in other words, an illogical set of sensing conditions, from its connected sensors and wiring). It apparently can happen, when wires become badly contacting, or if contaminated with motor brush carbon (the horrible black powder that comes off the motor commutator and brushes), or corroded from other contaminants from the soap dispenser area. You should be able to check this, remove, clean and replace the contacts: Take the top off the machine, (ENSURE IT IS UNPLUGGED) and on the right hand side of the machine, you should see a set of 4 blue wires that go from the electronics module to the front display unit. Take this plug off (it is held on by plastic retainers) clean with wd40, or silicone (Servisol) contact cleaner, then dry, replace, then try again. If it is very badly corroded or pitted, you may have to replace that part of the wiring and socket.
If it is not that, then the wiring to/from various other sensors could be damaged, or the control board could be faulty. It is probably worth checking around other plugs and sockets, re-seating each one in turn, that lead to the control board, as they are expensive (£60 - £80). Pulling off and plugging back on (Re-seating) the plugs and sockets has the effect of cleaning the contacts, and may fix certain intermittent faults like this. Obviously check for any plugs/sockets that appear burnt, corroded, or discoloured compared with the others, and clean the contacts with emery or a needle file.hope this helps pls do let me know

    The E90 error code is not a common error but it may occur when the washing machine electronics get wet for some reason. This may happen if wet clothes are left in the washer for a prolonged period after the wash cycle ends or if the same load is washed repeatedly.

    It is flashing E90


    The E90 error code is not a specific code. The error code E90 is just a group error code. It is indicating a communication error between the two boards in your machine. It does not indicate where the problem, may be a power glitch may have caused the E90 error code or a loose connection. One of the control boards could have failed.

    Good luck.

    E90 on Front load washing machine


    E 90 is an error code regarding the main pc board connection.

    the solution is to secure all connection to and from the main board.
    tighten the sockets and make sure they are not loose that could create a problem while vibrating and shaking.

    E90 is not a listed error code however most 90 range codes relate to a faulty pcb, some times worn motor brushes and blocked filter and air traps can cause some innacurate error codes being displayed we would normally check these items prior to replacing the PCB Regards Advisor
