Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry, don't know your particular washer but try this and no promises!
I would gently 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 even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor 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. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

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!

Get all of your towels. That little square on the bottom there. Open it with a flat head screw driver. There's going to be a trap there. Unscrew the lint trap by twisting the filter counter clock wise. Be warned, this releases the water. Check to make sure that trap isn't completely clogged with stuff. Put the trap back in tight and properly make sure the tub holds water before putting the square plate back on. ; ) . Voila

Zanussi jetsystem turbodry 1600 wjs1665 w is not heating the water


More than likely the heater element has failed.
This is located at the rear of the washer drum.
It means removing the rear half of the cabinet to access it.

Washing machine keeps stopping


pull the machine out and put the drain hose into a bowl to empty the water out when you have emptied it try cleaning the pump filter and check the drain system for blockages if that is ok then it looks very much like your door interlock is duff good luck and rate me.....
