I do not have E50 listed as a fault code but at a guess the motor brushes are worn out as the E50`s i have listed are all to do with motor problems-first place to make a start to solve your problem.Turn power off first please!!!!

Machine is beeping and flashing E50


Hi.

I think I have already sent you a message about the E50 problem. I will post again, just in case.

E50 is prompted when the timer board detects an incorrect value from the motor power triac, which is a component that supplies variable power to the motor. Even if the problem is usually the control module, motor power triac or motor itself may be faulty.

Try disconnecting power for five minutes, by either tripping circuit breaker or disconnecting power cord.

If the error comes back contact Zanussi at the number listed on the owners manual. The problem is often consequence of a factory defect.

Regards.

Ginko.

My machine is beeping and flashing E50


Hi.

E50 means that the timer board is incapable to control the motor. This means that either control module,
motor power triac or motor itself may be faulty.

Try disconnecting power for five minutes, by either tripping circuit breaker or disconnecting power cord.

If the error comes back contact Zanussi at the number listed on the owners manual. The problem is often consequence of a factory defect.

Regards.

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.

Can you tell me what code E50 is please?


Hello,
Yes E50 indicates that there is a fault on the main motor.This hopefully is worn carbon brushes which can be replaced at reasonable cost.If the main motor is faulty and this machine is out of the 5year parts warranty (2004 from mod. no.)It would be costly so check the brushes first.
Hope this helps.

Good Luck.
