Zanussi washer error codes

The Italian brand Zanussi is owned by multinational appliance manufacturer Electrolux. The history of the company started in 1916 when Antonio Zanussi began to make stoves and wood-burning ovens in his small workshop.
It was only in 1958 that the first Zanussi washer was produced. In 1959 the second generation appeared, boasting front-loading and five washing programmes. In 1985, the company started to sell washers with the Jetsystem, that saves water due to the use of a regurgitation pump. Appliances produced by this brand often get prizes. One of the earliest ones was Compasso d’Oro ADI, that was won in 1967 by the P5 washer.
Your Zanussi washer has stopped working? Whatever the cause, in most cases you can see that the washing machine is flashing a code on the display. When you understand Zanussi washer error codes, it is possible to tackle the problem without a repairman.
All you need is a little time and a guide like the one you see below. Check the following solutions offered for Zanussi washer error codes and try them. You will discover that you can correct many issues without a service engineer.
These fault codes are written for washing machine repairers and not for the general public by Electrolux.

Zanussi washer error codes

E11Difficulty in filling during wash phaseThis is usually your basic filling error so the usual should be checked, that the water supply is switched on and then onto the water fill valves.
E13Water leakage detectedThis is only applicable where a leak detection system is fitted
E21Difficulties in draining, drain errorBasic drain error, check the drain pump filter is clear and also the drain pump is actually working
E23Malfunction of drain pump triacThis refers to the triac that controls the pump function on the main controller.
E24Sensing circuit of the component (triac) that controls the drain pump faultyAs above.
E33Incongruous between closure of anti-boiling and 1st level contacts of pressure switchThis is a pressure switch or sensor fault and we would not recommend you attempt to DIY this fault.
E35Water level too highAgain, water pressure system fault and again, we wouldn't consider this to be a DIY repair.
E36Sensing circuit of anti-boiling pressure switch faultyAs above.
E37Sensing circuit of 1st level pressure switch faultyAs above
E39HV sensing circuit of anti-overflow pressure switch faultyAs above
E40Door open, door interlock, wiring or main PCBUsually a door lock that's faulty.
E41Door openClose the door!
E42Problems with aperture of the doorPretty much the same as E40 and E41 fault codes.
E43Problems with the triac which actions the door interlockAgain, this refers to the triac on the electronic controller and you should seek an engineer as it is not a DIY repair.
E44Door closure sensing circuit faultyAs E40, E41 and E42.
E45Problems with the sensing circuit of the triac that actions the door interlockAs E43
E51Motor power triac short-circuitedYet again, this refers to the triac on the electronic controller and not a DIY job
E52No signal from the motor tachometric generatorTacho coil on the motor is most probably faulty. This coil reads a magnet as the motor turns to detect the speed that the motor is spinning at and this in turn allows the electronic controller to set the motor to revolve at different speeds for the various program options
E53Problems with the sensing circuit of the triac which powers the motorAnother one that is a fault being reported on the electronic controller and not a DIY repair.
E54Motor relay contacts stickingAs above
E61Insufficient heating during washingUsually a heater failure but possibly the thermostat or NTC temperature sensor or wiring to either.
E62Overheating during washingAs above only the heater will likely be okay.
E66The contacts of the heating element power relay are always closedAnother one that requires an engineer, not a DIY repair
E71NTC washing sensor faultySelf explanatory but do also check the wiring to the temperature probe
E82Error in reading the RESET/OFF position of the programme selectorAnother non-DIY one, you will need an engineer.
E83Error in reading the programme selector codeAs above.
E93Incorrect machine configurationAs above.
E94Incorrect configuration of washing cycleAs above.
E95Communications error between microprocessor and the EEPROMAs above
E96In congruence between control panel version and configuration dataAs above
E97In congruence between selector version and configuration dataAs above
EA1Drum positioning system (DSP) faulty (top-loaders only)Not really used in the UK, more for European top loading models.
EB1Incorrect mains frequencyCheck mains supply, you may require an electrician to do this for you.
EB2Mains voltage too highCheck mains supply, you may require an electrician to do this for you.
EB3Mains voltage too lowCheck mains supply, you may require an electrician to do this for you.
