Question about Zanussi FLE1416W Front Load Washer

Zanussi FLE1416W Front Loader

When I set the programme, the START/PAUSE button blinks and nothing happens. The door light stays on as well. I have to switch off the machine before I can open the door again.

Switching on with the door open, setting the programme results in a clicking noise. Richard

Most possible reasons that the door switch or timer unit is defective. The dishwasher should heat the water to about 55 C as the heating cycle starts. In these cycle, the dishwasher pauses after has filled with water and wait for the water to reach the temperature. If the water isn't being heated (because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. if you think that a user manual may help you more, it can be downloaded ($8.95) at url:

Start/Pause light flashing but machine won't start

Unplug machine and wait a few minutes and replug it in again! This usually resets the computer on the washer but be prepared if it happens on a regular basis you may need to call a qualified repairman that can troubleshoot the problem!

The start / pause button will not work ...all other buttons are working

Make sure that the front door is locked or that the door switch is contacting to give the feedback signal to the main circuit board. This is a safety feature of the washer because unless the front switch works - door shut-the washer will not work - no action on start/pause.
Replace if the switch is faulty.

I've set the program. The machine starts and sounds like water is about to come through to the drum and then it suddenly just cuts off. The start/pause button then beeps and nothing happens when I press...

I have had a similar problem for many years. It appears at random and seems to go away if you leave it for a while (anything up to 24 hours). I have taken the machine apart and have failed to find any physical reason (blocked pipe, jammed pump etc.). However, patience prevails. Even if you try to start the programme loads of times it seems to make no difference. I've not yet found a fix and the machine is really good when it is working so I have learned to live with it. If anyone has a fix I'd be interested.

Machine won't restart after reset, 'start/pause' button flashing.


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.

Zanussi ZWF1437W washing machine - wont start

The error message "Err" usually indicates that the wash program and option are not compatible. 40 degrees and 900 rpm Spin should be o.k.. I would try another wash program with no special options and see if the problem goes away.
