Question about Zanussi Washing Machines
My new (6 months old and only 3 months in use since installed) washing machine has simply stopped working.
No errors are displayed on the LED, I can select all options as usual (prewash, delicates, drum speed, temperature, etc.) and the time is displayed for the time of the wash.
I then hit start as usual and the door locks and the light is illuminated but nothing happens.
The LED next to the Start button continues to flash and does not become solid as previously.
No water comes into the machine, the time remains as is, the door remains locked but nothing happens.
I hit reset and the door lock is disengaged and I also tried to deselct all the options and left just spin to see if with that option alone the machine would go into the spin cycle mode once I hit start again but still nothing happens.
I've checked the filters on the hose both that the pipe connection and at the machine connection itself and cleaned them.
I've taken off the top hoping to locate a reset button or something given that it seems to be what could be a minor problem but can't locate one.
Any advice would be helpful since I can't seem to get any from Zanussi.
I live in Grenada in the Caribbean and simply want it fixed whether under warranty or otherwise given I purchased it in the UK and they seem unwilling to assist me out here.
I've demonstrated to them I'm technically sound (well I thought so) and asked to purchase a Service Manual but they would not sell me.
My Zanussi is 5 years old it onn th whole works well not making over the odd noise but is often marking my clothes with splashes of light brown after washing, which dosn't come off even with stain remover .
What could this problem be.

The 'LE' error message indicates the control
board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for
some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor board
which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that
information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the
motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing,
the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.
This error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.
Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged,
press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.
Please get back to us if you have further
query or else please accept the solution.

Many modern washing machines display error codes if they detect a fault, but not all washing machines display a readable error code, some indicate an error by flashing, or lighting some of the lights.
Hotpoint, Indesit, Zanussi error codes
Hotpoint, Indesit washing machines and Zanussi washing machines are some common appliances that display coded error codes. On their more expensive models, they display readable error codes but basic models (without digital displays) use flashing lights to convey the error fault code.
If your washing machine malfunctions and you can see some of the lights flashing, or one or more option lights have lit up, then make a note of which lights are flashing and which option lights are lit. NOTE: the error code list engineers have only shows the option lights by number and not by name. Therefore you need to report the lights as LED 1 and 3, or 2 and 4 etc. and NOT "delay timer" and "extra rinse". Count the lights from the left (or from the top if in a column) and report as "led 1 and 3" etc.
No Option lights?
With basic washing machines that have no option indicator lights, count the number of flashes. For example, the door locked indicator may flash 7 times, pause, and flash another 7 times in a constant cycle which would indicate error code 7.
This information is vital, and needs mentioning when reporting a fault.
