If it is a british made washer, then the filter is usually located at the bottom front right of washer behind a drop down flap or cover, unscrew filter anti-clockwise to remove and clean.

    It depends how much water has drained from washer, be prepared for a flood. have some cloths handy, oir if you can remoe drain drain hose from outlet pipe and syphon water out first.

Zanussi washing machine will not empty

There should be a filter located at the bottom right front of washer behind a drop down down cover.
Unscrew the filter anti-clockwise to remove and clean.
If filter clear, then possibly the pump is faulty.
Hope this helps you with your problem.

Hi - I have a Zanussi ZWF16070W.When set for 1600 spin, it intermittently finishs the cycle and clothes are far from dry/spun. I have checked obvious filter for clogs etc. When I reset to spin cycle only...

Check the motor controller, and also the lid switch for proper operation.

I have taken out the filter and washed it thoroughly! Also flushed the out pipe to make sure the whole system was clean. This resolved the problem

Zanussi electrolux washing machine zwf1431w

Error E20 means the machine has failed to pump out. 1st check the filter at the bottom right hand side there may still be water inside if so pull the grey tab to the left of the filter there should be a thin hose extend it put it into a shallow dish and pull the cap off to let the water drain this may be a slow process. When the filters out look into the hole with a torch to see if any obstructions in the pump impeller this looks like a cross. If the filters and pump are clear it may be the pump has failed.
