SOURCE: Zanussi washing machine type ZWF 1217W Flashing

This error code seems to be the control board detecting a wrong configuration (in other words, an illogical set of sensing conditions, from its connected sensors and wiring). It apparently can happen, when wires become badly contacting, or if contaminated with motor brush carbon (the horrible black powder that comes off the motor commutator and brushes), or corroded from other contaminants from the soap dispenser area. You should be able to check this, remove, clean and replace the contacts: Take the top off the machine, (ENSURE IT IS UNPLUGGED) and on the right hand side of the machine, you should see a set of 4 blue wires that go from the electronics module to the front display unit. Take this plug off (it is held on by plastic retainers) clean with wd40, or silicone contact cleaner, then dry, replace, then try again. If it is very badly corroded or pitted, you may have to replace that part of the wiring and socket.
If it is not that, then the wiring to/from various other sensors could be damaged, or the control board could be faulty. It is probably worth checking around other plugs and sockets, re-seating each one in turn, that lead to the control board, before calling an engineer in, or getting a spare board, as they are expensive. Pulling off and plugging back on (Re-seating) the plugs and sockets has the effect of cleaning the contacts, and may fix certain intermittent faults like this. Obviously check for any plugs/sockets that appear burnt, corroded, or discoloured compared with the others, and clean the contacts with emery or a needle file.

hope this helps....

SOURCE: what does e20 mean on

The error e20 indicates towards pump.The pump needs to be checked. The pump is blocked or broken.e20 is a not draining error code,check filter at bottom.could be faulty pump or something jammed in the impeller. --------------------------

You have a blockage in the drain hose I would suspect.

Keep putting it on drain till you get the water out or simply lower the drain hose into a wash basin.

Once it's empty, put a couple of towels down, unplug the machine and lay it carefully onto it's left side. Left side viewed from the front. (turn off the water first and disconnect the fill hose if necessary).

You can now take the drain hose off of the pump and take it out of the appliance to check for a blockage.If no blockage, you'll need to take the pump out and check that too.

Check the hose first.Also check for any small cloth getting blocked in the machine inside.

To remove the pump,It's clipped into the base.Look at the underside of the base.Squeeze the clips together and push them into the base a little.You can then slide the pump out of the filter housing.Watch for the O ring as this has to go back on to seal the pump.The pump slides in and out.

You'll only need to unplug the wiring.If hose or pump checked out faulty then it has to be replaced,if filter is clogged clean it.

---------------Thanks.

    Zanussi progress 1200 won't take softener into


    Hi there
    Now I am urprised. There must be three dispensers in your Zanussi as in my Candy.
    One is for the main wash another for prewash and the third one for
    the softner.
    Look in the manual.

    My Zanussi washer will not start and the end light flashes 9 times. Do you know whats this means


    This indicates error code E90. Sometimes its a loose connection to the front control board. But it would usually require a replacement one Zanussi call them a user interface hope this helps you.

    Zanussi ZWF 1631W


    Try to pull out the power-cable from the contact. Wait for at least 30 seconds then reconect it again.
    Sometimes that can help but not always. If that dosent help you need to let a profesional repairshop fix your machine.

    Good luck

    Zanussi Electrolux ZWF 1430 W (E20 error)


    Check water "forreign object trap". It's under the lid at the bottom of the machine. First drain water by pulling out the hose and pull out the plug. Then unscrew the trap. Have had this E20 error twice. First it was two coins there, next it was a big paperclip. Have worked fine ever since.11_20_2011_8_57_27_am.jpg
