Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

The hum is possibly coming from the drain motor/pump.

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

If the timer counts down and nothing else happens, the secondary interlock switch is bad. This switch completes the cook circuit and this is why it doesn't run. You need an ohm meter to diagnose and find the right switch. Switch failure is caused by opening the door when it is in cook mode. Push the stop button first before opening the door and this failure will cease to occur. BE CAREFUL !!

I select a programme and then press the start button, the door locks but the start light flashes, and nothing happens


When the program is pressed to start then the inlet valve must open and allow the water to come to the drum. if this is not happening then check the voltage to the inlet valve, if there is no voltage then the program controller is not outputting and so defective.
If not the inlet filter/valve is clogged and will need a back flush .

Lights stay on constantly even when not running; does not run aft


That clip is necessary as it tells the dryer when the door is open and when the door is closed. you will have to get a new door switch.

Dryer won't start; light stays on whether door is open or closed.


Sounds like the door switch is not functioning or shorted......in other words the dryer thinks the door is open so it won't turn on.

We have a microwave which is approx 5 years old and the Light inside stays on when the door is closed, we can programme things in but when we press start nothing happens? Help please! Regards Sue


one of the interlocks is faulty, it would possibly be cheaper to buy another machine, do not open the microwave yourselve these have a very large capacitor that if shorted could possibly kill you.

Machine won't start and clicks if turned on with door open


 
Ok, this is the fix:


No payload. Close the door. Press off, then press on. Then enter a program starting by selecting the fabric and the others as usual. Do not press start, instead press the slip button to advance the programme to the very last phase, ie drain and empty. Then press start. It will perform this operation with no load and pump out the “no water”. This part takes 5 minutes. After the 5 mins the programme will end and the machine will beep annoyingly, but the computer will be reset and you can clear the program and use the machine as normal.


Why?


I had the same problem. The stupid computer inside remembers the program whilst it’s off and unplugged. What has happened is you accidently pressed start and start again to pause it in very quick succession. This confuses the computer and it thinks that a program is in progress. This is why it wants to close the door. There is no problem with the latch (unless it is a separate problem). You have to let it play out a program to reset it, which is why you can play the very last “drain” segment.


Question.


Presumably there’s a way to reset the computer either by a secret button combo or shorting out two pins from the computer box. I don’t know. If someone knows this please tell me.


Good Luck!

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: http://www.download-manual.com/shop/Zanussi-FLE1416W-User-Manual-pr-8261.html
