E40 fault on zanussi washing machine is it worth repairing or to buy a new one 8-9 yrs old ?


A Zanussi E40 error usually indicates "Door open.Check interlock and associated wiring check door latch,check module and connections." However, what most people don't know is that most manufacturers route the poser to the door interlock through the same curcuit that powers up the carbon brushes on the motor. So if your motor brushes are worn down, the door won't lock. Your machine is about the right age for its brushes to be worn out, so I would check this out first. Motor brushes are cheap, easily available on Ebay and fairly easy to fit. Take the current brushes out, if they are less that three quarters of a centimeter long, changing them is a highly likely fix for your problem

Why won't the drum spin on my washing machine and can I fix it myself


Very likely the brushes are worn, these are located either side of the motor. if you are able to take the motor off the machine but don't know where the brushes are, take the motor to your local repairer who will probably change the brushes for you at a small fee plus brushes. if you are able to identify the brushes and can take them off, the carbon inside the brush holder should be no less than half and inch long. If its less they are probably worn out. get new ones and replace. be careful the carbon brush is very brittle and will break easily. I can't be more specific on changing the brushes as each machine is different.

Changing the brushes on a beko washing machine


Its been a while since I changed beko but here goes.......... Put the machine on its side (soapbox side down, This prevents excess water from the soapbox dribbling into the PCB and creating a further problem). There is an opening at the bottom of the machine in which you will see the motor. On each side of the motor will be the brushes each with a connecting spay-tag, gently take of the spay tag with long nose pliers (not grabbing the wire) and change the brush. VERY IMPORTANT.....each brush is angled and it is important you replace the correct brush eg. left hand brush to left hand etc. or else when you goto wash the next time you will simply hear a bang and have to price a new motor. I highly recommend when you take each brush off do it slowly noting its angle and replace the new one at the same angle. Wfen done replace the spay tag. I am presuming you know to do this when the machine is fully powered off and plugged out. Happy Fixing.

Just fixed the same problem - new brushes on ebay were only £5. Fitting the brushes was fiddly and easiest if you take the motor off, which was easy to do (just 2 bolts).

if replacing the brushes has not fixed then its most likely the motor is duff.

The recommendation to get a new motor may be overkill and a very expensive option. Also on this site I found an alternative solution which was to just replace the motor brushes. This we did and it fixed the problem, coasting us just £20.15, rather than the £199 quoted for a new motor!

A reasonably competent person needs to remove the motor, identify the brushes and remove - just involves two hex-head screws. When new the brushes will be around 2.5cm long. They need to be around 1 - 1.5cm long to work. Alternatively the spring(s) may be sticking, preventing the brushes from being pushed against the rotor.

When calling suppliers to enquire as to availability I needed not just the product description, but also the PNC and serial numbers (located inside the front door), as types of brushes have varied during the production period. However the outlet I went to still did not have the correct bush - housings were different. The chap serviing very kindly swapped new brushes into the existing housings - this is something you could do yourself if you cannot get the exact same ones - just a little fiddly.

Hope this helps!
