In case you have an urgent need to open it during a running programme, refer to Cancel (Reset) a running programme before the end. RED INDICATORS Service indicator Lighting up of the Service indicator can be caused by a fault in an electrical component. Refer to the Troubleshooting Guide in the Instructions for Use; If the fault persists, contact our After-Sales Service. Clean pump indicator The water is not pumped out.

Try closing it again. Turn the programme selector to Off/0 and reset the programme. If the indicator remains on, refer to the Troubleshooting Guide in the Instructions for Use. PROGRAMME END Lighting up of the lamp on the wash sequence indicator means that the programme has ended and the door is unlocked. 1. Turn the programme selector to the Off/O position. 2.

Consumption values were measured in normalized conditions in compliance with standard IEC/EN 60 456. In domestic use, consumption data may vary with respect to the values in the table in relation to the water supply pressure and temperature, the load and the type of wash. The time indicated on the display (if present) can deviate from the values in the table, because it takes into account the household * conditions applicable at that time. To reduce the water temperature, some cold water is added at the end of the main wash cycle, before the pump drains the water out. ** *** Reference programme for energy label. ADD DETERGENTS, CLOSE THE DOOR AND SELECT THE PROGRAMME Add detergent as indicated on the front page and as described in the chapter Detergent and Additives in the Instructions for Use. 1. Turn the programme selector to the desired programme. 2. The indicator of the predefined spin speed lights up; in case you want to set another spin speed, press the Variable spin button. SELECT ANY DESIRED OPTION Press the button(s) of any required option(s) - the respective indicator lights up. When the combination of programme and additional option(s) is not possible, the indicators switch off automatically. Unsuitable combinations of options are deselected automatically. Prewash button Only for heavily soiled loads (e.g. sand, granular dirt). Increases the cycle time by approx. 15 minutes. Do not use liquid detergent for the main wash when activating the prewash option. Easy ironing button Can be used together with Cotton, Synthetics and Dailywash programmes to make ironing easier. Increases the water quantity and the clothes are spun very gently. Intensive rinse button More water is added and the rinse cycle is prolonged. This option is particularly suitable for areas with very soft water, washing baby linen, and helps people with allergies. Rinse hold button The laundry remains in the last rinse water without the final spin cycle, to avoid creasing and prevent colours from changing. This option is particularly recommended for the Synthetics, Dailywash or Delicates programmes. It is particularly useful if you want to postpone spinning to a later time, or if you want to drain only. If you select Rinse hold, do not leave the laundry to soak for too long. Note: The programme stops to Rinse hold at the time the Rinse Hold light in the programme sequence indicator is on. The indicator next to the Start button flashes. To terminate the Rinse hold option: Press the Start button; the programme will terminate automatically with the final spin cycle for the preset wash programme. Variable spin button Every programme has a predefined maximum spin speed. Press the button to set another spin speed. If spin speed 0 is selected, the final spin is cancelled but intermediate spin peaks remain during rinse. The water is drained out only.

SOURCE: Zanussi ZWF1437W washing machine - wont start

The error message "Err" usually indicates that the wash program and option are not compatible. 40 degrees and 900 rpm Spin should be o.k.. I would try another wash program with no special options and see if the problem goes away.

SOURCE: What to do if whirlpool awz 50e washing machine is

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Providing that the tap is turned fully on and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, this is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else ;-0(
Good luck,
John C
