Re: Zanussi front loader
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Height of exit hose should be approx 3 feet from ground level.

your rinse cycle does not work it is your outlet filter that is clogged. If this
is a front loader the small door is in the bottom front side of machine. Be
prepared for some water to come out when u open the door. Unscrew and clean out
filter and refit.
Also please note with the Asko there are several possible things that can interupt the cycle
either during wash or drain/spin. Have you checked the pump insert/button trap
for debris or obstruction of any kind ? ( below main door to the left ) Are you
using "he" ( lo-sudsing ) detergent ? Does the machine provide any error code,
i.e. If it's a mechanical timer model does it stop at "C" or "S" or if
electronic a symbol in the display ? Will it complete a cycle without any items
in the basket ( empty ) ? Will the unit rotate in both directions and will it
spin if you try both parts of that specific cycle ? This will help determine if
the problem is with the drive motor brushes.
this worked for me and I made 25p for the trouble:
First empty the machine by lowering the hose at the rear to ground level into a container. Take off the white plastic cover on rear at bottom. You will see black rubber hose connected to barrel of machine in right hand corner. Undo the silver screw on the band securing the hose. (Biggest band). You can now pull the hose down to reveal a "table tennis like" ball. Lift it out carefully and you will probably find an obstruction like a coin or similar. I found a hairgrip but it was enough to stop the ball functioning. DO NOT TAKE OFF THE WHITE HOSE CLIPS

Further to my comments re clearing scrap from table tennis ball after code F4. Machine started ok but then F5 came up. Had to take the pump off and apart to reveal broken hairclip actually seized in pump. If you are handy at all this is simplicity itself. Slide pump to left and lift and it comes clear. Take off 2 black hoses only where connected to main machine. Pull off electrical connection. Pump and hoses lift out easily. 3 screws open the pump. Clean any obstruction and reassemble. A 30 minute operation.
If it's similiar to the F1231 w than i found a color catcher caught between the pump impeller and pump cover. this is located at the bottom right front of the 1235W and flips open. grey hose beside it pulls out and remove cap of hose and drain into bowl.
Tip take wet clothes out of machine to speed up the emptying of machine - this dawnwd on me after a few minutes.
Some more water will come out when you remove the pump cover - screw anti clock wise.
ee pages 18-19 of the zanussi guide for cleaning instructions. I found this link to manual on internet
or check your own manual for cleaning instructions and remember unplug power first - just in case. you may need to reset your wash to do a rinse again as i got a vibrating sound when i restarted and skipped to spin. hope this helps
