Question about Washing Machines
We have a two and a half year old Zanussi ZWF 1221W washing machine that is no longer spinning. Checked the filter in the bottom at the front and the waste pipe and both are clear. It will fill with water but not spin. It is taking the washing powder but not the conditioner. Checked the belt and it is fine and I can spin the drum by hand easily enough. It will also drain the water using the pump too. Is it the motor that is gone?

SOURCE: Zanussi ZWF1437W E23
E23 indicates Drain pump faulty; Wiring faulty; PCB faulty.
The service information also says it should stop with the door open.
Unplug the appliance and manually remove the water via the filter or front drain point if it's fitted.
Drain it into a shallow dish, tighten the filter when you need to stop the water (or plug the hose if draining via a hose) while you empty the container.
Once empty, try the door again.
Take the filter out and clean out any debris in it.
Plug the appliance in and put the machine on a drain programe.
Listen/look at the open filter to check that the drain pump is running.

This is not an easy repair to carry out, it involves a complete strip down of washer, and removing the whole drum assy from the washer, and until it is stipped down, you will not know if the drum shaft is worn, if it is, then this puts it way beyond an economical repair.
