Zanussi ZWF 1621W - fails to spin

Zanussi 1621

Fills O.K.
Reaches end of wash cycle.
Motor is working up to this point.

Then beeps ''end'' and
Stops before going onto spin.

I don't _think_ it's pumping out, but I'm not sure. Pump is my first suspicion.
I have cleaned out the pump filter and given the board/receptacle contacts a once-over with sevisol.

TIA

Unfortunately this fault sounds like it could be the timer, the PCB board or even the motor. A pressure switch fault or blockage in the pressure bottle would cause the symptoms that it washes and distributes perfectly OK, but just wont do the fast spin. It doesn't sound like the case here. The jerkyness of the motor implicates one of the above causes. It's possible for badly worn carbon brushes to cause a jerky motor. If you had water on the electronics too, there's no guarantee it hasn't caused some problem. It doesn't look promising I'm afraid.

The "two air pressure sensors mounted at the top of the frame connected by pipes to the nether regions" must be the pressure switches.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
It cleans poorly
There's no water entering the machine
The water doesn't drain from the machine
It's noisy
It leaks
The dry cycle has problems
The door has problems
The cycle doesn't complete
I see an error code
The detergent cup doesn't open
The cycle times are too long

It doesn't work at all If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house
Door switch
Wiring
Timer or selector switch
Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

I don't think this is a GE model #, but any who, if you hear a humming <water valve sol> the product valve is not getting water to it, first, don' laugh, make sure both plumming valves are on..
If they are off and no one knows how they got turned off, it falls under the old "****-happens" deal !

SOURCE: how do i remove the door seal on the zanussi zwf 1220s

Follow these steps to replace your door seal:


For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS Disconnect all power to the machine first!!

1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
2 After removing the outer clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,

Hope your warranty is still in effect. It sounds like your control board has an electronic problem that will require replacement; typically around $135 for the part and $110 for the service visit.

Our washing machine (Zanussi ZWF 1632 W) flashes 5 times


This is a motor problem the end light flashing 5 times indicates error E50. The motor has either got wet or has just failed i would suggest trying to dry it 1st but i would suspect the motor has gone down to earth usually having to replace it. The part no. DST1246179079 Motor aprox £195 but shop around you may find it cheeper.
