Question about Zanussi FJS1225W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Hotpoint wd420, error code "pressure switch stuck on empty"............found lots of debris in sump, all cleaned out including pressure bottle and tube, still same, new pressure switch fitted, still same. what seems to be happening is the machine is pumping out as it's filling and not allowing any water level to build up inside pressure bottle...any ideas?

    it abrubtly started doing this a week or so ago, there were no intermittant issues prior to this........it is an electronic timer, what i have also just done is placed the drain hose into the kitchen sink to eliminate syphoning, then, to try and fool the machine, and to get some water into the drum to activate the pressure switch, i fed the drain hose into the soap drawer, but the same thing happens (if i squeeze the rubber sump hose when there is water in there, i can hear the pressure valve clicking, but the pressure bottle simply will not fill with water, i have had the sump pipes off about 6 times now, checking for leaks, missed blockages etc etc, my conclusion is that the pressure bottle does not need a significant amount of water in it (i can't see any when shining a torch, but can clearly see water in it when i was cleaning it) and that the main PCB is throwing a fit.....and a replacement is too expensive to even bother replacing the main PCB..........(i forgot to add, when the machine goes into fault mode, the fan on the dryer also starts up.)

    so in summary, the machine will run for about 1 min, on any cycle, any temp, when the fault light comes on ("pressure switch stuck on empty"), the machine continues to drain, and the fan for the dryer comes on.

    thankyou.

Is it an electronicor mechanical control?When did it start doing this? If mechanical, does it continue even if you forward the timer?

    Actually, without boring you with long detail, i feel the board needs to be relaced.You just need to concider if it is viable or not.

Error code al03


AL03 indicates a time out on drain fault. Either there is a restriction or blockage on the drain side of the appliance or on the pressure side.If the machine empties ok you need to locate the pressure switch, remove the thin tube and blow back into the sump to try and clear the restriction. If the machine isn't emptying or empties slowly you need to clear the restriction/blockage in the drain hose, pump or sump.

My Hotpoint Ultima WMD 960 displays "F04" on the display panel before the programme ends. Have cleaned the filter and it worked OK in spin mode and finished normally but now have put in a washing load, it...


Error code F04 means pressure switch jammed on empty.
Do the following.
Remove lower rear panel of washer.
Remove large black hose on bottom of drum.
Remove and clean filter inside the hose.
Remove the hose on to the pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Error code fo5


f05 is normally a fault cause by the pressure switch - often caused by a blockage in the exit hose of the washer. if the water cannot leave the washer in time the f05 will come up because the pressure switch has not told the machine it empty. on hotpoints there is a filter inside the exit pipe from the drum to the pump which gets blocked up. need to remove and clear out the sump assembly and this normally fixes the f05 error. if this does not cure the issue then the pressure switch is probably faulty but its notmally just a blocked pipe.

Did the circuit board get wet?
Its behind the fascia panel.
You will need to remove the top cover to see.
Screws are at the back of the top cover.
Remove them and slide the top backwards to get the top off.
Look for any water marks.
Best luck
