There is no electrical supply
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but with such a fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this FixYa forum to guess remotely what is wrong with your washer.
It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, water inlet control valves, door solenoid, main motor, drain motor etc..
I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Zanussi fx 1465 w program fills with water then
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine 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. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
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 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!

I have en error message
E62: Overheating during washing
E12 means a problem filling on dry cycle.
Unplug the appliance, take the top off and check that the plastic condenser below the fan is clear and clean.
If this is ok, the most likely fault is the triple valve isn't opening properly to feed water into the condenser.
It may be that a power off and on is all that is required to make the valve work.
The worst case would be that it's a fault with the main control board.
If you have access to and can use a multimeter you could test and make sure that 240 volts was being supplied to the valve when it goes wrong. This would narrow the fault down.
Ive had it many times when during use the valve fails. So at first it works ok and during use thats when it fails.
What you can do is set it going and say after 20 mins or so unplug it and meter out the dryer coil on the fill valve. Its the green coil. What you will proberbly find is the coil is open circuit.
If so the valve will need to be replaced and it should be back to normal then.

My Zanussi washing machine is smelling
I have this problem with my Siemens machine, it is due to mainly running low temp washes and bateria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe). I run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) I buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time I did mine I ran the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out. My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months. Hope this helps. Roni. (ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)

Machine stopping mid cycle
Count the number of green flashes(1st number of error code). count number of red flashes(2nd number of error code).
Common codes are:
E10 or 11 water pressure faults.
E20 filter/pump faults.
E30 pressure switch/heater faults.
E40 door switch faults.
E50 motor faults.
E60 Heater faults.
These are some of the error codes but there are many variations on some codes depending on the model.Hpoe this has been some help.
