Zanussi zwf1431w Turns off after 10 mins during wash programme


Zanussi zwf1431w washing machine. When set on any programme irrespective of temp, speed of wash etc machine will start off as normal but is not warming up water and will turn itself off after 10 mins jumping to drain function. As a result clothes are just getting wet not washed but you can then manually jump onto rinse and it will then complete the programme including the spin.Irrespective of what programme you select, or wether you select delayed wash, the machine jumps straight to the drain cycle. Pump runs, pumping away at nothing for 2-3 minutes, then the machine stops and the end of cycle lamp comes on. Machine is 2 years old.

The machine cycle gets stuck because of a problem with water heating.

The cycle on a washer will not advance until required temperature had been reached.

If instead the problem is not the heating, but is the washer getting stuck on drain, and the drain pump never stop, then replace the pressure sensor, or analogic pressure switch (lid switch) that determines water level and cause the pump to stop on normal conditions.

Faulty parts that can cause the problem are:

Heating element

The element is tested by reading continuity with multimeter

Wiring harness

Temperature control. You test this only if water is heating but cycle not advancing.

Timer board fault causing this problem is really uncommon, even if non-experienced repairers often start by replacing timer board. However, if it is none of the above, test and eventually replace timer board.

Always call the seller to ensure you are getting the right part for your appliance.

Test, replacements and repairs must be done by a qualified person.

Please do not forget to leave us feedback afterward, that is important for us.

Many thanks.

Zanussi zdt 6053 usually will not run full cycle (on any cycle) but stops with constant error beeps. But it is draining ok and sometimes goes full cycle (not often) Any ideas?


Could be anything!
If you suspect that there is a fault then it will be displayed by blinking LED "END OF CYCLE". As the display of failure in hexadecimal code it can flash up to max. 15 times than short pause and after that repeat fault code. You must to count the number of times the LED "END OF CYCLE" flash up.

Example from user manual: Anti-flood device is activated.
- continuous flashing of the indicator light of the running programme
- 3 intermittent audible signals
- 3 flashes of the END OF CYCLE indicator light
(which means "i30" fault code, the cycle is interrupted and the
drain pump switches on).
Possible causes:
Water leakage from the tub - sump and various connections
(pump, upper spray arm duct etc.); floating sensor blocked
mechanically; microswitch faulty; fill solenoid blocked
mechanically; circuit board faulty (solenoid triac short-circuited);
wiring faulty.

To cancel a washing programme in progress:
- Open the dishwasher's door.
- Press the programme selection/cancel button for about 3 seconds,
until the indicator light of the running programme turns off and the
END OF CYCLE indicator light flashes, indicating that the running
programme has been cancelled and that the machine has
returned to setting mode. It is now possible to select another
washing programme. If a new washing programme will be
selected, check that there is detergent in the detergent dispenser.

NOTE: only during the drying phase, if the dishwasher's door will be opened and remains open for more then 30 seconds, the running programme will be automatically cancelled and the machine will return to setting mode. This will happen, always only during the drying phase, also when the machine is switched off by pressing the
On/Off button and remains switched off for more then 30 seconds.

I have a Zanussi WDA1055W washer/dryer. I never


the water should only be filling up to approc 2in above the drum bottom...........look inside when its filling..........if its filling to nearly the bottom of the door you either have a faulty pressure switch or grit/dirt in the internal filter.......as a result the machine will not spin if there is too much weight in the drum

Zanussi electrolux washing machine zwf1431w


Error E20 means the machine has failed to pump out. 1st check the filter at the bottom right hand side there may still be water inside if so pull the grey tab to the left of the filter there should be a thin hose extend it put it into a shallow dish and pull the cap off to let the water drain this may be a slow process. When the filters out look into the hole with a torch to see if any obstructions in the pump impeller this looks like a cross. If the filters and pump are clear it may be the pump has failed.
