Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
No tool, just patience and time! Had the same problem with our Bosch, cap would not even turn!
Suggestions- pour anticalc/limescale fluid into any gap there is around the filter. Empty the machine and you can switch it off providing the door is open! Then pour the contents of at least 2 sachets of proprietary anticalc powder/liquid into the drum direct together with a kettle full of boiling water. Leave overnight at the very least. The following day run just a spin cycle as then there will be no water diluting the mix. This mix will go through the filter and motor and is likely to help release the filter/cap. If you feel like it, do the overnight again. If nothing else it will ensure that the heater element is clean!
I had to spend a couple of hours gently turning the cap back and forth until it finally released its hold- but the filter did not remain attached to the cap by its rubber ring. More patience, anticalc fluid and all was revealed!
I now run an anticalc clean regularly............which reminds me..............!
Good luck
John C

UNABLE TO REMOVE FILTER ON ZANUSSI, EVEN THOUGH UNSCREWED


Having made sure you have unsrewed it all the way, then try pulling from side to side as you are unscrewing it, if you still can;t get it out, then something is stuck inside the filter, or the filter housing, this will entail removing the pump complete to clear blockage.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Where is the drain pump located on zanussi dishwasher model DE 6744 S ?


The Drain pump can be got to by removing the circular filter at the bottom of your machine and all the screws that hold the plastics in including the round retaining plastic clip, only then will you see your drain pump prepellors, but if you want to remove the Drain Pump then this can be done from the rear of the machine you might have to remove the macine outside for this as you need to turn it on its side, from the back of the machine remove the two screws holding the big electronic motor this is plugged into electric sockets remove them also there is a rubber bung that holds this in place once unscrewed the motor needs a bit of a jig and it should slot out through the back of the machine. If you are thing of changing this it costs about £120 I got rid of the machine myself.

The washer is not draining or spinning properly and the display shows the letters Sd! Help!


Hi, It sounds like the pump is plugged up. Remove the front lower panel and locate the pump. The pump has an access cap that you wil need to remove. You will need to lower the drain hose into a bucket or try and remove the water with a wet/dry vacc before removing the pump cap. (You will get wet)
Once you can remove the pump access cap, clean the filter out and check inside the impeller opening to see if it has any lint plugging it.
Please let me know if I have helped you at all or if I can assist you further,

Thanks

Zanussi IZ 12 pump access


You should not need to remove anything to check and clean pump filter.
Open the filter door at the bottom right front of washer, there you will see the pump filter cover, unscrew the filter anti-clockwise, and remove the filter, and clean same.
With the filter out, you will see the filter housing, which is fastened directly on to the pump, have a good look inside the housing, and see if anything is stuck in there.
Refit filter, and test.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

Zanussi ZWF1437W E23


E23 indicates Drain pump faulty; Wiring faulty; PCB faulty.

The service information also says it should stop with the door open.



Unplug the appliance and manually remove the water via the filter or front drain point if it's fitted.

Drain it into a shallow dish, tighten the filter when you need to stop the water (or plug the hose if draining via a hose) while you empty the container.



Once empty, try the door again.

Take the filter out and clean out any debris in it.

Plug the appliance in and put the machine on a drain programe.

Listen/look at the open filter to check that the drain pump is running.

not easy.suggest you disconnect pump and power up independently as an easy way to check if it runs
easiest way to remove pump - and its awkward - is to undo the 3 screws holding the pump to its housing

WASHING MACHINE FRONT LOADER


If it's similiar to the F1231 w than i found a color catcher caught between the pump impeller and pump cover. this is located at the bottom right front of the 1235W and flips open. grey hose beside it pulls out and remove cap of hose and drain into bowl.

Tip take wet clothes out of machine to speed up the emptying of machine - this dawnwd on me after a few minutes.

Some more water will come out when you remove the pump cover - screw anti clock wise.

ee pages 18-19 of the zanussi guide for cleaning instructions. I found this link to manual on internet

http://www.manualshark.org/manualshark/files/6/pdf_13638.pdf

or check your own manual for cleaning instructions and remember unplug power first - just in case. you may need to reset your wash to do a rinse again as i got a vibrating sound when i restarted and skipped to spin. hope this helps
