Customer Question

Customer: I have the exact same problem as below. Before I follow the thread of these ways of trying to sort the problem my machine is a ZWF 16070W1. Do you need a more specific model number than that? I have a Zanussi Essential 1600 6kg washing machine.Last night I put a load on a delayed timer setting and this morning I came down and the start/delay button was flashing and the load still had water in.I switched off the power and waited for 2 mins before switching back on. The start/delay button still flashed and I could not get the machine to work.I have since emptied the drum of all water and checked the waste water discharge for blockages, which there were none.I then put the power back on but nothing had changed i.e. the start/delay button was still flashing no matter what setting I selected.I wondered if there was a reset button that needed to be activated?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: It is exactly as above put machine on delay last night to come on this morning. Machine is full of wet washing looks like it has done its first wash but nothing beyond that. The start button is flashing green and door is no longer locked. I have drained the machine cleaned out the filter at the bottom, which was blocked, and reset the machine to start. It just flashes green but does nothing else. Have tried unplugging it waiting (while I drained it) and plugging back in and settting the programme again still just flashes green but does not lock the door or start. We have tried it on a range of setting i.e. rinse, cold different 40 wash but just flashes green and nothing else happens door does not even lock

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The issue is that the pump cannot discharge the water. If you have cleared all of the lines and the pump filter, the drain pump is likely faulty. Do you hear it humming or buzzing, trying to drain?
