Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine and I haven't ed4 in my fault code list for Zanussi BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters.
If this does not cure, you will need a service call, sorry ;-0(

Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Replace Zanussi ZWD12270W faulty dryer heating element


Just for the record, the heating element went on mine too and I'd only used it less than half a dozen times. The engineer said that it went because it hadn't been used enough (it gets moisture inside somewhere). He said if I didn't use it I would have the same problem after it had been replaced. So make sure you dry something every couple of weeks (he said at least once a month).

I have a Zanussi Washer/Dryer Model ZWD 1270W. When I set the machine to wash (any cycle), it fills with water, the water jet starts, it takes the soap powder then it immediately skips to the 'drain'...


http://laundry.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/zanussi/zwd_1270_w_zwd_1270_s_zwd_1470_w.html
If you go to this website, they have manuals and you can ask questions also.

Just one thought. Have you unplugged the washer for a few seconds then plugged it back in? It's possible the "brain" needs to be reset.

My Zanussi ZWD 1470W won't fill up with water. I


Story could be lengthly so in brief, check to see if drain pump is not blocked and if door latch is functioning correctly.(use a multimeter if you can). If it all measures out as good, then your control is faulty. Does the water fill up to the correct level when you start the cycle? Does the motor hum when trying to run. If so check the capacitor.

Did you fix this problem? We have the same with Zanussi ZWD 1472 W. It takes some water and stops after 2 minutes. We need to shut machine down and fill water manually. It works fine then.

E20 code. Not draining


E20 is a general error code to get to the real problem try this..
Reading Error Codes 1. Wake the washer by pressing any button. 2. Wait 5 seconds. 3. Press and hold the START/PAUSE and CANCEL buttons simultaneously. As long as the buttons are held, the failure code will appear in the display as an “E” followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or two letters. The control will beep and the Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, and Final Spin indicator lights will flash. let me know what code come up... hope it helps
