I have a Zanussi WJD 1667 W washer dryer. It is 11 years old. Recently developed fault in that it does not drain and timer doesn't go down past 27 minutes (I think when wants to drain to go to rinse?). Pump sounds like it works. No water left in drain area when gets stuck. (flap on front at bottom right) Machine has been working fine in the same location with same drain fitting for last 7 years. Diagnostic mode: originally showed E21 as error code I understand this means drainage problems. I have an extension on the drain hose and can separate it to drain into a bucket - still the problem persists. The machine cannot drain properly. If I blow down the hose back into the machine in makes a different sound, then a bit of water comes out. then back to doing nothing. Repeat for same effect. If something is blocking the drain hose outlet on the inside, How do I get to it? How do I clear this problem? Appreciate this may not be the issue. Today I went into diagnostic mode, ran some of the tests. When I got to 40 degree light the error code now shows E33. Manual drain still required. Help!
Hi, my wife says always at the same point (when a full wash cycle is run)
Hi, thanks for your answer but I am not certain this is the right response. Also I cannot see a control board for my machine at espares so have no idea if it is worth repairing or just buying a new machine. I have no indication how long it would take to get the machine part, replace the board and put back together (so whether it is worth the time investment). I have read up on problems related to these I have, and the codes I have received, and they have explored a number of other options such as pressure hoses, cleaning all contacts and plugs for the board, checking the pump and suchlike. Hence cannot yet rate your answer. Can you give me more detailed information on your prognosis please?
So can you give me any idea on the cost and length of time required by this solution? That would be most helpful...
Also, when I would put in just on a drain cycle (say), it would not drain and would fail with E20. This is it stopping for a different reason so I wonder if I have fully explained the issues I have found - it is not just when I run a full cycle. I believe there is still a drain problem. It can drain (at least a bit) if I don't have the drain hose connected to its extension that runs to the sink outlet. It sounds like it's pumping but not much comes out. Some comes out if only the short hose. none if on the long hose. Just want to make sure this is the only option. Please don't get cross! :)
Thanks for your patience...
Just to gather your thoughts on my comments about the drain cycle I wrote please... same thing you think?
Hi, please stop sending feedback requests, I pay someone when a job is done, not before. If you have helped me you will get your feedback and payment. I can't do anything more until tomorrow, so we'll pick this up again then. Many thanks.
I have called espares as suggested and am told the part is obsolete. There was an alternative - sadly that also is obsolete!
So this has not resulted in my fixing my machine.
Is there anything else I could try?
Additional: I have removed the control board (at last) and I see 4 burnt out resistors, damaged IC, burnt out transformer and lots of soot!
As long as functional, I could at least sell it on then.
Let me know if you find anything.
