Question about Zanussi ZWF1430W Front Load Washer
Machine locked with wash/water inside, Error flashing on start pause button, have pressed button, no response, have turned off power, no response
Are you getting an error code E20.because this would suggest a blockage in the pump/filter or drain.To get the water out there is a little hose down by the filter which pulls out a few inches and can be drained into a shallow dish,otherwise if you can get machine near the back door step undo the filter and let it drain outside,once drained get a torch and see if there is anything blocking the filter/pump.The end of the pump blade should be able to turn freely.Oh by the way once the water is out you should be able to open the door.Once you have done all before you put filter back in turn knob to spin or drain and you should see the pump spin.Now if all ok refit filter and check for leaks. Hope this was a help.

I don't know if this will work but try
Select PAUSE/OFF twice to cancel the
Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive
water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press HOLD TO
Let me know if no response.

My EWD1477 was doing this a year ago and I fixed it. Then it started
doing it again a month ago and I seem to have cleared it again.
Firstly, remove the drain hose from where it is inserted into a laundry
sink hole to make sure it is not blocked or sealed in with sludge.
Secondly, make sure the machine is empty of water and clothes and then turn
the machine to off with the Program Selector Dial. Then turn off the power at
the socket and remove the power plug and leave for five minutes.
Step 1: put the plug back in and turn the power back on.
Step 2: turn the selector switch to the right (Whites/Intensive). The green light of the Start/Pause button
should be flashing and the green lights on for Prewash/wash, Rinses and
Spinning. Don't press any other buttons or change any other settings.
Step 3: press the Start/Pause button and wait for the machine to empty
any excess water. Press it again immediately after you hear water flowing into
the machine OR two audible clicks. The machine is now in pause mode with the
green light of the Start/Pause button flashing. Only the green light on the Prewash/Wash
button should be on. Leave it in pause mode for 30 minutes and then press the Start/Pause
button to recommence the cycle.
Step 4: If the Start/Pause button begins flashing, water stops flowing
into the machine and the three green lights mentioned above are back on, turn
the Program Selector Dial back to off, wait 10 seconds, and repeat the process
Step 5: If when you then turn the Program Selector Dial to
Whites/Intensive and hear the two audible clicks, immediately press the
Start/Pause button to set the machine in pause mode. Wait 30 minutes. Then
press the Start/Pause button to recommence the cycle.
Hopefully the cycle will run without a problem.
