ZDT5052 flashes quickwash light

Hi, My Zanussi ZDT5052 stops after draining water and last program(50-degree quick wash) light starts to flash quickly. It happens sometimes with first water drain, sometimes after last drain. Some cycles are washed normally, but then again, for an example after draining water with washing powder it stops and starts flashing this light. Filters are checked. Same with hoses. No lime. What it could be? Manual doesn't say anything about last light flashing.

Thank You!

    I now have the same problem. Things started after having twice the electricity cirquit breaker going off during washing cycles. I figured out that there was no water in, so the heating resistors were heated and caused the cirquit braker to disengage power. Then I changed the water hose and cleaned the filters, so water input was OK but I have the quickwash flashing problem and my wife is complaining dishes are not cleaned well. For the moment she repeats twice the washing cycle.

Tarvi...I don't know what the problem is...hard to diagnose these things. If the unit is working correctly, I suggest that you simply cut the power for a few minutes and then restart it. That may clear our a trouble code.

My zanussi zwg 6141p washing machine is calling water at start of cycle but is not going into drawer to swill out detergent , is also stopping half way with the green light on the start button flashin

Some appliances malfunction can be displayed in hexadecimal or in binary code.
So your device is defective and shows you what's wrong. You have to count how many times flashes red light and how many times flashes green light. Red light shows the first error number and green light the second error number.
For example: you forgot to close the door and you started washing machine. After some time (timeout) will generate an alarm. Four times will flash red light and once the green light which means error code " E41 " or "Open door"
" E20 " means "No drain water"
" E10 " means "No fill up water"

Some 1 gave my daughter a slimline zanussi dishwasher not sure what model it is but looks quite old. need a manual as the program numbers have faded and cant see them regards chris oh and its a aqua save...

If the model is correct then even without a manual the control set up is as follows.
From Lhs you will see on/off/ button next are the 2 lights top one is on/off and the bottom is for salt low light.The next button to the right is rinse and hold next Intensive 70 Degrees,next Normal 65,next Bio 50, next Quick wash 50 Degrees.To cancel a wash programme open the door and press the button for the prog. underway for more than 1 second until the corresponding light goes out.
The dishwasher is now reset and you can select a new programme.You can try this site for a manual.

Hope this helps.

Hi my zanussi zwf1432s stopped halfway through washing green light on start/pause button flashs wont do nothing else all lights will change when cyle chosen but will not start justs beeps then back to...

Hello Paula,
Do not know how many flashes but 1green/1red = 11 water pressure low.
2green/1red = 21 blocked filter or pump fault.
You would be best firstly checking the filter and make sure it is clean and pump turns.with water drained and filter out shine torch into filter put on spin/drain and see if pump blade spins if not then try and turn with long screwdriver to free out any debris then refit filter and check for leaks and try donnt fill fully until you are happy it can drain water.
Hope I was of some help.

Good Luck

Anussi ZWD 1271W stops at beginning of program


Did you fix this problem? We have the same with Zanussi ZWD 1472 W. It takes some water and stops after 2 minutes. We need to shut machine down and fill water manually. It works fine then.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
