Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not have the decode for E30 on your particular machine BUT for the ZWG models it states 'check filter of the drain pump' which is what I tend to advise in cases like this!
So I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not go to spin or release the door lock if there is water still left inside.
Here are my complete and general pre-typed (!) guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain 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!

Zanussi zfw 1631 w skipping through programmes straight onto drain from wash. has been coming up with an error code e30


I'm going to take a stab at the filter on the empty pump being blocked.

I have tried to find an error code that matches for you and loads of forums talk about a possible blocked pump filter (Though I have seen a motor fault mentioned too!).

Try checking the filter out, it's the biggest cause of questions being posted on this site for washing machines

Error cde E20 on zanussi zwf 1631


E20 is an error code for drainage failure.



Check where the appliance drain hose connects to the house drains for a blockage.

If it's onto a spigot under the sink, take them off and check both for a blockage.

If these are ok then it's likely to be a blockage in the pump.



You'll need to drain the water out manually.

Put a shallow dish below the filter and slacken the filter.

Tighten it to stop the flow of water while you empty the dish.

Once empty, take the filter out, clean out the debris and ensure nothing is left jamming the pump.

Before refitting the filter, put the machine on drain or spin and listen at the filter housing to see if you can hear the pump running.

If you do, fit the filter and try the machine again.

Zwf 1631 w


Have you took the front cover off and looked for the strainer which is located before the water pump. I have seen many of them plugged tightly, causing the water not to drain. Look inside the owners manual that came with the machine. It also should give you some things to check that would cause the code E20 to keep flashing. Hope this helps.

Error code e30


This error relates to the motor drive. Plug off the wall, open up behind, look for broken belt. If the belt is good its the motor brushes. Secure connections to the motor, look for loose wires.....

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
