Washer dryers often have cold water valves with 3 separate solenoids. One for the main wash and rinses (which is clearly ok) and one for the condition rinse (to take the fabric conditioner down) which is probably ok too, and the 3rd one is for the dryer. It's possible this 3rd solenoid has failed.

Washer dryers need on a steady trickle of cold water running into the condenser chamber to convert the steam into water, which then gets pumped down the drain.

e10 means that there is a problem with the water supply.
a condenser dryer needs cold water to operate properly. the e10 code will appear if:
1. the water is turned off
2.the water pressure is too low.
3.the solenoid valve is open circuit
4.there is a problem with the pressure switch (least likely)

Cold valve is at the end of blue inlet pipe remove lid and you will see it.

f E10 is only appearing when trying to dry, the problem almost certainly is the condenser valve solenoid open circuit. The green solenoid on the inlet valve. Should read about 4000 ohms.

My money would be on the solenoid coil being open circuit. The coil can be canabalised from most valves although you may have to modify the connections. For simpler repairs - contact Zanussi and get the entire triple inlet water valve to swap out.

My washing machine keeps stopping during its washing cycle and says fault E10


Thank you for your inquiry, Barbara Constable!
I see that your Electrolux washer is displaying an "E10" error code. "E10" stands for fill time too long you may want to check the hoses to make sure they are not restricted or kinked this could cause slow fill within your washer. If the hoses look to be in good shape then I would suggest it could be a faulty sensor or control panel. You could additionally reset your washer by disconnecting power from it for ten minutes. If you restore power and it continues to flash "E10" I would recommend having a professional out to properly diagnosis your washer. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

Zanussi washing machine zwf14581w . err e40


Hi.

Error 40 means : "Door Error"

When you get error 40 it is usually because of a defective door interlock.

Try disconnecting power for five minutes. If the error comes back the parts to be tested are door interlock, wiring or main PCB. The defective part must be replaced. Parts and quote on repair can be obtained contacting Zanussi customer service at the number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

My Zanussi ZWF14581 washing machine shows an error


Hello,
The error code E10 is in relation to low water pressure.Have you checked that the hose at rear is not kinked or check the filters in the ends of the hose.Also make sure when you have hose off check the pressure in the supply.If all that is ok then it could be a faulty solenoid valve.

Hope this helps.

E10 code on a zanussi jet system washer


Is it a washer-dryer? E10 relates to a fault with the inlet valve.....usually the valve itself going open circuit.

Mid wash I am gettign E10 messages


The manual suggests the following for E10 error --- 'The Water tap is not turned on.'
It is a valve fault.It is not taking the water in possibly. It is the green side of the triple valve. Try manual clearing the valve.Else The water inlet valve might need a replacement.
Good luck with the machine.Please do rate my solution.Also do post comments for further help if needed.

E10 error code


I had this problem, the washer/dryer stopped working while in the drying cycle and displayed e10 message. It was caused by a faulty three-way inlet valve. The solenoid controlling flow to dryer condenser proved to be open circuit. Pulled washer out from under counter top, unplugged, removed top cover, tested solenoid circuits with ohm meter and found one solenoid was faulty. The filter going into the unit was clear. Replaced whole three way component with one ordered on Internet and all now works fine. Noticed that during drying cycle, water to condenser is constantly being switched on and off, explaining why the green condenser solenoid is the one that wears out first.
