Machine wont start

Yesterday machine did not drain so did it manually and checked out the filter which was clear. tried again and machine did not drain so did it manually then check the outlet hose which seemed to be blocked as couldnt blow down it. took back off and checked the pump which suprisingly had a pingpong type ball in it dont know where that came from. put all back together now machine wont do anything at all. the display lights up and machine clicks as if it was going to start and nothing at all. the inlet host is turned on ok so its not that.

Go back through the process that you performed. You may have miss a step of not connected somthing. Also you may want to make sue there is nothing in the pump. If a pingpong ball was in ther ther also may be some coins.

Well here i am,back again.Same problem kind of.yesterday we took off and descaled all pipes/filter etc.It seemed to solve the problem as the first wash worked perfectly,then on the next wash.......F18


Have you tried a boil wash ?
Also check that the drain pipe has no kinks or sharp bends in it.
I know we managed to get the drain pipe cleared :-)
But the next step may be to check that the waste pipe you are connecting to is not also scaled up.
If you can take the drain pip off again, check and see if the pipework you are connecting to is also clear.
Other than that, this may actually be a failing drain pump.

Check the rest of your pipes are clear in the house (where the machine is plumbed into).
Then do a boil wash - hottest wash you can, NO SOAP and empty drum.
Hopefully that will let the machine clear everything else out.

Machine had been giving E20 error code - filter cleared and it re-started ok. When wash was in progress - jammed at rinse stage and all lights came on (except spin speeds) and humming noise and nothing...


E20 is an error code for drainage failure.



Check where the appliance drain hose connects to the house drains for a blockage.

If it's onto a spigot under the sink, take them off and check both for a blockage.

If these are ok then it's likely to be a blockage in the pump.



You'll need to drain the water out manually.

Put a shallow dish below the filter and slacken the filter.

Tighten it to stop the flow of water while you empty the dish.

Once empty, take the filter out, clean out the debris and ensure nothing is left jamming the pump.

Before refitting the filter, put the machine on drain or spin and listen at the filter housing to see if you can hear the pump running.

If you do, fit the filter and try the machine again.

Hi there

I have an IZ12 jetsystem which sometimes works and other times it starts and then clicks and stops just before the water starts to run in. I usually turn it off and try it again a few hours later and then it starts to work again. Sometimes it is the next day before it will work again. Would anyone know the problem?

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.

Machine can't get rid of the water gives no drain message


The motor is burnt out. When it is cool it will pump water out, but as it heats up and the insulation on the windings break-down is short-circuits and stops.

Whirlpool front loader washing machine (AWO3361) WONT DRAIN


Remove drain hose from where it connects to the plumbing under the sink/tub. Inspect the spigot. If clogged, clean. If clean, then tilt machine back and remove drum to pump hose from pump. Check hose and also drain pump. Clear any obstructions.
