How long does it take to skip to just draining.. The is a switch in the top of the unit that keeps the unit from going into spin mode any time the lid is up. Make sure the lid is down and locate the switch and make sure that it is getting depressed. Some lids have a plastic part protruding that pushes the switch when the lid is down..If you find the switch use a popsicle stick or something non metalic to push it down while the unit should be in spin and see if it works right. If not unplug the unit. Next if you can get the top of the unit up...Use a butter knife or putty knife and push in at each top outside corner while lifting up and release the lid to get it up. Find the switch that the lid contacts. Unplug the wires from it. Us a piece of small wire or paperclip to connect the two wires to each other. Make sure that none of this touches any metal/part of the machine and let the lid down...doesn't have to snap shut. Plug it back in and try it again to see if it spins. If so the switch is bad...This is common..also the plastic part that pushes the switch get broken off easily. Let me know what you find..

Possibly blocked sump hose( bottom of drum) or pump not running,,,,drain water by putting outlet hose down too ground level, when water drained out put machine on spin. If machine spins ok, then you have a pump problem,,,,if water won't drain out when outlet hose at ground level then you have a blocked hose

Zanussi ZWF1437W E23


E23 indicates Drain pump faulty; Wiring faulty; PCB faulty.

The service information also says it should stop with the door open.



Unplug the appliance and manually remove the water via the filter or front drain point if it's fitted.

Drain it into a shallow dish, tighten the filter when you need to stop the water (or plug the hose if draining via a hose) while you empty the container.



Once empty, try the door again.

Take the filter out and clean out any debris in it.

Plug the appliance in and put the machine on a drain programe.

Listen/look at the open filter to check that the drain pump is running.

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.

Machine stops and goes to end half way through a cycle


Check the filter is not blocked it sounds as if it cannot drain in the time allowd at end of wash cycle. Regards Advisor
