Zanussi ZWF1440W fails to start wash and goes to end of wash program after a few seconds and unlocks door. E34 error code which suggests, heating element, wiring, water level sensors or PCB! Changed heating element which eliminated the problem for a few weeks.... Then it came back. Tested water level sensors, no issue here. Did some further investigation and found that machine self tests quiescent temperature before starting, this is a resistance measurement, therefore heating element replacement 'fix' made sense as the thermostat is fitted to the heating element and disturbing connections is likely to reduce resistance..... Hence lower temperature reading results in self test passing. So, chased sensor wiring up to PCB mounted at top of machine. PCB easily removed with a few cable ties and simple fix by removing connectors, spraying with WD40 and replacing connectors. Obvious issue when connectors off as connectors appeared cheap and corroded. Worked them back and forth a few times .... And bobs your auntie. Suggest you rework all the PCB connectors to prevent other imminent issues. Philjackson

Three things i would suggest on the zannuzi. Does water come into the drum at the beginning of the wash? Does the drum turn if asked to wash or spin? Does the drain motor disperse the water in the drum when supposed to. If motor does not turn, check the brushes. Sorry for being so vague, Zannuzi not common in S.Africa, but those are the common problems i have found while repairing the odd one.

E34 code what does this mean


Incongruence between level of electronic
pressure switch and level of anti-boiling
pressure switch 2 (duration of fault at least 60
seconds).
Cycle is blocked with door closed.
Could be: Hydraulic circuit of pressure switches; electronic
pressure switch; pressure switch; wiring between main PCB and electronic pressure switch; wiring between main PCB and safety pressure switch; and finally main PCB.

Error message E50 shows when the machine is switch on.


Zanussi washing machines can sometimes display error code E50. As John Lewis washing machines are currently also made by Zanussi some John Lewis washing machines can also display error E50.

Unfortunately this is not a "proper" error code and is not listed in error code lists. It's part of the motor fault error code group and is apparently displayed to customers but when an engineer enters a special diagnostic display the "proper" error code will be displayed giving more information.

However, there are usually only two error codes beginning with E5 which are E51 and E52, which are "motor power triac short circuited" and "no signal from the motor tachometric generator" respectively.

So if you have E50 displayed on a Zanussi or John Lewis washing machine it looks like a problem with the motor. However, the E51 "motor power triac short circuited" could be a fault on one of the PC boards as triacs are usually on printed circuit boards. This could have blown due to a short circuit somewhere else (like the motor for example) - I would advise that an engineer is required if you can't see anything obvious with the motor.

I'd like to know the key sequence I need to press to be able to self-diagnose the problem I've got with my zanussi washing machine. ZWF1640.


To display Error Code:
Move Programme Selector to the Off postion.
Press the 2 buttons on the right and turn the selector 1 position clockwise and hold the 2 buttons for about 5 seconds until all the lights are flashing. Release buttons and turn the selector to the 10th position. The Error Code will be displayed.
Note the code then turn the selector to off ,then on,then off again.

E50 code


hiya
i'm sure that e50/e51 is the insulation in the motor breaking down, in which case its usually new motor time i'm afraid.
