Washer fills with water then drains:

The critical question is. Is the water is just running down the drain but the pump isn't running. If it is being pumped out, and you can hear the pump running just the same as when it's emptying prior to spin then it could be aborting the wash because it is, or it thinks it's overheating. ( due to defective water temperature switch)

If the pump is failing to shut off then there is something wrong with the electronics. If your washer is a mechanical timer controlled device then you may have a sticking switch (which may explain if switching cycles does something for you). But if you have an electronic timer then you may be experiencing a board failure, where a cycle is being commanded when it is not intended to by design.


If water isn't being pumped out, but just draining away all the time, the washer will keep detecting there isn't enough water inside and top up with more.
Modern washing machines should be sophisticated enough to realize something's wrong and abort with an error, but if not, it may continue washing or rinsing for a short while before losing enough water to trigger more coming in again. It can get stuck on this cycle indefinitely and it's called siphoning.
Siphoning occurs when the end of the drain hose is lower than the level of the water inside the washing machine.
Try raising the hose and see what happens.
Also the drain hose should have some type of air gap where it fits into the stand pipe. It should not have an air tight fit.

Again Either it's siphoning down the drain due to an issue with the plumbing, it's overfilling, or also if it ( THE WATER) overheats then in some machines the software will employ a fill and drain tactic to cool down the water. The important thing is to work out which of these different faults is causing the problem by careful observation.


Other switch's to check would be the water inlet valve and the water pressure switch with a multi meter for continuity or OHMS.

SOURCE: zanussi washing machine wont spin

check the drain hole when you start the machine if the water is coming back out , if yes that means your dump valve is bad.

have you checked the filter behind the flap on the front of the machine, this could be blocked. if the machine is full of water though you will have to manually drain it by putting the grey outlet hose into a bucket or a washing up bowl. you will also need one or two towels to place on the floor because there wil still be a bit of water left in the ipes even though the drum is empty.

hope this helps

E30 indicates a pressure system fault. There can be several causes but the most frequent is a blockage in the system.
First thing to do is check the filter on front of machine.
Please do this and report your findings.

SOURCE: Zanussi ZWD1470W fabric conditioner compartment won't drain

fabric conditioner is dispensed during rinse cycle, if it does not work then either, try pouring hot water into dispenser, as conditioner tends to get goopie when dry, thus may have clogged up

When power on and selected cycle goes straight into drain


Zanussi has a safety function on its machines. If the machine has a major fault the only thing that will function is drain. This is ensuring the machine can be emptied of water prior to working on it. unfortunately this doesnt help you because the problem will have to be established by trial and error

Washing machine displays E30


I have just had the same fault on a ZWF1631W machine. The machine overfills and goes straight to drain.
The level is controlled by an air pressure switch.
Remove the machine top, the switch is the round white plastic one. On mine, one of the wires had broken off. I had to replace the connector with .25" crimps.
If not, the switch may need replacing.

Egg smell at start of wash.


Make sure that the drain hose is connected correctly, and that there isn't a direct run down from the sink u-bend to the washing machine. This can allow some of the dirty water running down the sink to run down the drain hose into the washing machine. A drain hose that is connected to a sink u-bend should first go up at least 3 or 4 inches high (it may need tying up) before running down to the washing machine. Good luck!
