Thanks for the response. The only thing that was in the filter were two small copper coins.
Having rechecked the machine, I do not think there is any water left in the machine now. The door can be opened, so it would seem that the best option will be to try the machine again, and if it fails mid-cycle again, I can revert back to you.
Following my recent response, I have tried to start the machine on a 1 hour 30 minute superquick wash, and the light is showing that the feature is locked, and it will not start.
Alternative options are simply resulting in the lock light coming on and or the Err signal deing displayed with the start button being shown by way of a red light as opposed to a green light.
Unfortunately, no water can be heard and the wash has not started.
No error code is displayed.
The door can still be opened, when the machine is in the off mode.
Model number ZWF16581G

Turn the washer on to any cycle apart from the first cycle to the right.
Then press and hold the start button and the button to the left of it and keep them held in for several seconds. Then it will show up an error code E??
Let me know the code.
This refers to the triac that controls the pump function on the main controller."
So, the chances are that the pump should be ok. It is the main circuit board that is defective.
This is an expensive item to replace and its not possible to test this item at home, due to its complex electronics.
In this situation I would suggest a fixed price repair, as this includes ALL PARTS needed for the repair.
Can you tell me your postcode and the age of the machine and ill get you a quote
Thanks very much for all your help today Rob. I will rate your service after this reply.
Our post code is SG8 7QU, and our washing machine is 4 and a half years old. Given the likely cost involved, is it worthwhile having it repaired?
