Question about Zanussi FLE1416W Front Load Washer
My GE Front-Load Washing machine (no model name, newer one might be called Adora) is about 6 years old and recently it has started pausing itself midway through various cycles. The "pause" light is flashing, as though I pressed it, and it restarts when I press the button to unpause it. Very annoying because you expect the load is finished
and discover it paused itself shortly after it started. Happens 1-3 x per wash cycle.
I don't know if this is related, but I had no problems until about a month ago when I started a load and then all the lights flashed on the machine, door locked and then everything went dead. A few minutes later I was able to power on the machine and it seemed to work fine. It was not a power failure.
Any advice would be much appreciated as I can't really afford a service call right now! Thank you.

Washers - Resetting Electronic Controls on a Washer
If there is a pause in the washer cycle, the controls will lock up. The pause can occur because of a power failure or it was put in the test mode at the factory.
Also, if the washer was stopped before the cycle was complete or the consumer has pushed the stop/pause button to temporarily stop the cycle and the cycle is not reset. Over a period of 24 hours, the washer will pump out and spin, but will stay in the final spin.
To correct the situation, shut off the circuit breaker for 30 seconds or unplug the washer, then turn the timer knob around and back to any position other than final spin. Verify the water is turned on and restore power. This should resolve the issue.

clean the drain filter located behind the front lower panell, its prob. holding excess h2o and wont let the water fill cycle activate. this happened to mine.

When you put it to drain/spin does the pump make any attempt to drain,if not it could be that there is something stuck in the pump,needs draining manually.Another thing to try is to find the fault code.If you hold down the 2 buttons on the far right of panel then press on/off button till lights start chasing,then release the 2 buttons on right hand side.Now the first function button by the on/off button you will need to press until the light above the button reaches the 9th or 10th position this will give you a read out in the display.
E10 = low water press.
E20 = pump or filter.
E30 = press. switch or heater faults.
E40 = Door swich.
E50 = motor.
Some of these numbers can vary there are more but those are the most common.After checking codes switch off machine then back on twice to reset.
Hope this helps.

I've had the same problem. I removed the top lit and found some pressure
transmitter and a pressure switch. I suspect that the pressure
transmitter is use for measuring the waterlevel in the machine. I think
the membrane loses its flexibility over the years.
I pulled of the hose from the transmitter and blowed and sucked a few times on the transmitter. After doing this the machine washes without a problem since then.
Hope it helps for you.
