SOURCE: my zanussi zwd16270w1 has stopped

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is probably water still left in the washer because the drainage has not been able to work correctly!

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

What can cause the Circuit Breaker to trip out when the door of my Zanussi ZYB594X oven is opened and the internal light comes on?


I suppose, the light did not work because the circuit breaker was released.
In this case, try to find a short-circuit in the following circuit : microswitch (door lock) - power board - light bulb.

Hi I have a Zanussi essential 1600 6kg ZWD16270W1 washer dryer. It was mid drying at the weekend and it just stopped, all the lights on the display went off and now nothing works at all. I've checked the...


I am not familiar with a combo set but my guess is wiring. A fuseable link, ground, sensor or similar. Is they a spare electric cord you can safely try and use. Try by passing the power cord to see if it is the issue Mount it securely so no person will have to hold or be exposed to electric currents and that the cord doesn't ground on any surfaces it is not suppressed to. Or it's just a bad power board.

Zanussi E45 error


This is a door lock circuit error, damaged PCB board. Something took out the board, and is now showing the PCB has failed. The lock might have took the board out, or wiring issues etc. Not an easy job to repair, and kinda pricey. Sorry...

Zanussi zdc67550w error code 51 - whats it mean?


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.

Hope this helps (remember to rating this free answer and leave a testimonial comment).

Error message E50 shows when the machine is switch on.


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.
