I have zanussi zf1220w washing machine...fills and empties but doesn't run cycle...fault code end light is 5 flashes...start light is 2 flashes...any ideas?

The error code you have is E52 which is a motor related fault.
What you need to do is pull the washer out and lean it backwards against a wall and get someone to hold it .
Then lie down and look under the washer. There you will see the back of the motor. Either side if the motor at the back you will see the carbon brushes.
Take them out and inspect them and see if they have worn down. If so then you need to replace them and that should get the motor back up and running from there.
Check that out and see what you find as the error code you have is a motor related fault.
If you need anymore info just get back to me.
