Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Wf860 f-01 error code

I know this means a short circuit on the motor triac and i have had an engineer look at the machine, his conclusion was that the motor had failed but there is voltage at the motor.
What he wanted to repair the machine was at at great cost to replace the motor about the sam price for a new machine.
I am a qualified electrian and could do the repair myself but if i perchase a new motor and it does`nt work then i have spent out for a part unecessarily.
I have disconnected the plug from the motor and put the machine through a wash cycle and everything works normal except the motor of cause.
Can you tell me if i can do any tests on the motor to assure me it is the motor

If the machine is less than 5 years old and you can prove it you should get free parts on a hotpoint?
Yeah there are two/three tests you can do to check the fault, it will be better if the motor is removed, more than likley the motor will have 6 pins on the connector. two for the coil, two for the armature, and two for the speed feedback. check continuty for all three (should all be low resistance)and then check isolation from the earth, they should all be above 4 Meg Ohm from earth. then spin the motor shaft and measure a small voltage on the speed feedback (this is just a magnet that spins on a coil giving a voltage feedback during a spin)
also check the motor for cleanliness and damage to the armature( small flat copper plates that the brushes make contact with) any damage is irrepairable, the carbon dust can be hoovered or blown off which may increase the resistivity between earth if needed.
try this out and see how you get on,

I have zanussi ZWH 6140 P WATER WONT DRAIN ERROR CODE 5 FLASHING RED LED LIGHTS?


First, always check carbon brushes on main motor especially if the appliance is in use for several years.

Five times the red alarm means a problem with the engine washing.
So, could be:

E51 - Motor power triac short-circuited.
Current leakage from motor or from wiring; Main PCB faulty
E52 - No signal from motor tachometric generator.
Wiring faulty; Motor faulty; Main circuit board faulty.
E53 - Motor triac sensing circuit faulty (wrong input voltage to
microprocessor). Main circuit board faulty.
E54 - Motor relay contacts sticking (high voltage level when
the relay switches to OFF).
Current leakage from motor or from wiring; Main PCB faulty;

Rapid reading last alarms:
Press the START/PAUSE button and the nearest option button simultaneously (4 and 6) for at least 2 seconds: the LEDs initially switch off, and then display the flashing sequence indicating the last alarm.

Zanussi zwn 6120 l washing machine Error code 5 red 1 green


Your washing machine show the error code E51 what means faulty electronic (triac short circuited). Replace PCB.
A good idea is to check the motor, which in practice can cause this failure (shor circuit motor winding) and sometimes is necessary to replace the electronics and motor and than is question profitability of repair.

Zanussi washing machine fs1255w green end light flashes 5 times what is this error code


Press START/PAUSE and any one of the option buttons
simultaneously for at least two seconds: the LEDs first switch off,
and then display the flashing sequence corresponding to the
alarm condition.
Examples:
Alarm E43 (problems with the door safety interlock triac) will be displayed as follows:
• four flashes of the END OF CYCLE LED indicate the first digit E43;
• three flashes of the START/PAUSE LED indicate the second digit E43;
So, error code E55 as you specified does not exist. Any how, family error code 5 (first digit) means problem with motor. Error code could be E51,E52,E53 and E54.
Possible causes:
- faulty motor
- motor brushes (very often)
- faulty tachometer (integrated in the motor but is replaceable)
- faulty electronic (Motor power triac short-circuited or motor relay contacts sticking).

I'm getting an error code bE


Hello there and welcome to fixya
This is a motor short error meaning there is a short somewhere in the motor could be the windings or the wiring itself
here is the code and some things to check ok?
bE
Motor triac short error Can be a short circuit to motor or PCB
If the motor tacho signals are inputted more than 300 every 1sec in the operational interval less than 90RPM, this error will occur.
  • Check mains supply
  • Check main control module
  • Check main drive motor
  • If you think you can do the repairs or test this let me know and i will give you the steps on how to use a meter to test the machine ok''
  • Please let me know
  • Best regards Michael

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. 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.
