Have a ZWF14581W wont start program (any program) Error Code E41 Have checked filter that's fine. Just get a hum as if motor or pump is doing something but nothing happens.



When you start it going will the door lock?


Is it doing the same on every cycle?



Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Wont start on all cycles.

Close door select program

Door lock light comes on

Hum starts nothing else

Lightly push door to check it is closed and humming is louder



Ok try this and see what happens.


Turn the dial to off

Press and hold the start button and the button on the left.

Keep them both held in and turn the dial 1 click clockwise.

Once the leds stat to flash let go of the buttons.

Now turn the dial clockwise one click at a time all the way round to off.

Then turn it on then back off again.


Now retry a new wash cycle and see what happens from there.


Let me know what happens.

OK did that and then set it ton spin, pump started and drum turning. A load of codes appeared as I was turning the dial as you asked. What did we just do?




That's just gone through a test cycle.

Sometimes the pressure switch doesn't reset so it wont fill and just keeps the pump running all the time.

So going through test mode resets it and allows it to work again.


So fingers crossed now if you start a wash cycle it should be back to normal from there.
