Zanussi washing machine filter problems

When the filter is blocked it affects the washing machine’s efficiency and can lead to lint deposits on clothing as well as drainage issues. It’s essential that the filter is kept clean to avoid breakdowns due to accumulated debris, and the procedure should be carried out every three months.

If an uneven load isn’t the issue here you may find that the drainage hose has become blocked and your appliance simply won’t spin until the water has been drained. The water level control may be faulty, or the valve may have become corroded and will need replacing.

Zanussi washing machine fault codes

Error code E20/21/23/24

E2 error codes relate to washing machine drainage problems. These can be due to obstructions in the filter or pump, or a defective drain pump itself. Wiring and connections will need to be inspected alongside pipes under the sink which can lead to drainage issues.

Error code E10/E11

This signifies that your washing machine is unable to fill with water. Checks will need to be made on the water supply inlet valves and the hoses to ensure that they’re not kinked or obstructed. Your water supply may also be the culprit here.

Error code E13

This indicates a leak from your appliance and the cause will need to be determined. Water from the base of your washing machine will have to be removed and the leak professionally fixed. Your Zanussi washing machine may have a water leak detection system which will come into play.
