Question about Washing Machines
Any idea what error 52 means,I've checked all the error code lists I can find and error 52 isn't on any of them
I believe it means
"no signal from the motor tachometric generato"
Which means Tachometer (tacho) coil on the motor may be faulty. This coil reads a magnet as the motor turns to detect the speed that the motor is spinning at and this in turn allows the electronic controller to set the motor to revolve at different speeds for the various program options.

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:

When ours does that it is because of the hard water build up. We have to un-hook the hot water clean out the minerals and it stops doing it.

Zanussi washing machines can sometimes display error code E50. As John Lewis washing machines are currently also made by Zanussi some John Lewis washing machines can also display error E50.
Unfortunately this is not a "proper" error code and is not listed in error code lists. It's part of the motor fault error code group and is apparently displayed to customers but when an engineer enters a special diagnostic display the "proper" error code will be displayed giving more information.
However, there are usually only two error codes beginning with E5 which are E51 and E52, which are "motor power triac short circuited" and "no signal from the motor tachometric generator" respectively.
So if you have E50 displayed on a Zanussi or John Lewis washing machine it looks like a problem with the motor. However, the E51 "motor power triac short circuited" could be a fault on one of the PC boards as triacs are usually on printed circuit boards. This could have blown due to a short circuit somewhere else (like the motor for example) - I would advise that an engineer is required if you can't see anything obvious with the motor.
