Question about Zanussi IZ12 Front Load Washer
A week ago I've got the brand new HOTPOINT ARISTON ARMXXD 129 washer dryer, 1200 rpm, full electronic control, LCD display.
PROBLEM- When selecting the first wash cycle possible - WHITE COTTON - 90 oC, 1200 rpm, after starting, the water takes the powder detergent from both the first and the second compartment, shortly one after the other, the LCD display says WASHING, not PREWASH, and in fact there is no REAL PREWASH CICLE - as it usually should be: prewash/evacuate/spining/ short rinse/evacuate/ spining/ washing. Everything else works fine.
The user manual Phase/ Features table shows to put powder detergent for prewashing in the first compartment, so logically there should be a REAL PREWASH phase.
Q.1 - DO I HAVE TO SELECT THE PREWASH CICLE SEPARATELY, OR THERE IS A PROGRAMMING ERROR?
Q.2 - WHERE CAN I FREELY DOWNLOAD THE ORRIGINAL ENGLISH USER MANUAL?

SOURCE: prewash always flashing
yes i had a similar problem the prewash light kept coming on mid wash cycle and eventually stopped taking in the water just bypassing it straight to outlet without filling machine. i found if you remove the pump at the rear of machine and disconnect hoses there was a build of lets say deposits leading to a sensor through a opaque plastic connector to the top of machine . after cleaning the hoses thoroughly and removing all the crud machine worked as it should do, hope this helps

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

SOURCE: why Prewash light is flashing?
I think you need to clean pump filter, if not at front, then remove lower rear panel of washer, locate and remove large black hose on drum ,remove and clean filter inside, remove hose onto pump and check for obstruction there as well.
Please rate my solution.
