Zanussi FJR 1454W Stopped mid cycle, machine didn't empty, can set new progam, came up with E20
My machine flashes E20 half way through the programme, it will not go any further. I have tried cleaning the fluff filter but this has not helped.

One looses touch with all the codes available, but normally if washer stops mid cycle its due to a blocked or faulty drain pump. OR incomming water is to slow or defective inlet sensor. Switch off and start from the beginning. See if you can get machine to drain by moving the timer etc. If not, rectify pump problem. Take note where in the cycle the problem arises.
Count the number of green flashes(1st number of error code). count number of red flashes(2nd number of error code).
Common codes are:
E10 or 11 water pressure faults.
E20 filter/pump faults.
E30 pressure switch/heater faults.
E40 door switch faults.
E50 motor faults.
E60 Heater faults.
These are some of the error codes but there are many variations on some codes depending on the model.Hpoe this has been some help.
Have you checked the pump filter, and or that the pump is actually working. if it spins o/k with no water in, then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump o/k, then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Hope this is of some help to you.
First, try to
reset the machine to factory settings first by
setting cycle selector to off position for 5 sec, then to spin for 5 sec,
then back to off for 5 sec, and then to spin. The machine should reset allowing
you to select the drain cycle and get the water out of the machine then
run a spin cycle to clear any remaining water before you unscrew the
filter to clear it.
Next, you need to take the filter out at the front, bottom right, of the machine, empty it of all lint and replace it. It
may have water trapped in so be ready to soak up
excess liquid! Also, make sure when you put it back in you have
tightened it enough to avoid leaking but not too much that you cannot
get it back out.
If this doesn't fix the problem, check your drain pipe hoses to make sure they are not kinked and flush them out.
its a pain, I am not sure of the zanussi systems, on a Hoover/candy and hotpoint/idesit, these are a clamp band with spring and bolt, you have to secure both sides of the nut and bolt, and unthread the bolt the clamp will open up and can be removed, and do the opposite putting it back on, I find access from the top of the machine is easier to work with on the inner clamp, but remember to turn of the power as some of the components around where you will have access from will be live, always unplug from the wall, shocks are not very nice or good for the heart.
not easy.suggest you disconnect pump and power up independently as an easy way to check if it runs easiest way to remove pump - and its awkward - is to undo the 3 screws holding the pump to its housing
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Press "end of cycle" to finish the mid stoppage..
If it's similiar to the F1231 w than i found a color catcher caught between the pump impeller and pump cover. this is located at the bottom right front of the 1235W and flips open. grey hose beside it pulls out and remove cap of hose and drain into bowl.
Tip take wet clothes out of machine to speed up the emptying of machine - this dawnwd on me after a few minutes.
Some more water will come out when you remove the pump cover - screw anti clock wise.
ee pages 18-19 of the zanussi guide for cleaning instructions. I found this link to manual on internet
or check your own manual for cleaning instructions and remember unplug power first - just in case. you may need to reset your wash to do a rinse again as i got a vibrating sound when i restarted and skipped to spin. hope this helps
