OK, as it goes to drain cycle it seems something is stuck in there or the pressure switch is stuck causing this problem. This is the reason washer goes to drain cycle and the door wont open because the washer has not completely drained...you can pull the washer out and clean the drain pump completely...if the problem is solved after doing this great if not then check this :
Ok, I cleaned out the drain pump and all the lines to and from it.
Also checked the lines to the pressure switches, all OK.
Manually filled the washer and tested pump operation, once drained the pump switches off.
When I select any wash cycle and press the start button again the washer switches into drain mode. Fault remains.
Next step, replace pressure switch.
NB - read your last reply after I'd done the above work.
This model doesn't have a knob to turn, just push buttons for on/off, fabric, temp etc. Manual page 6 - http://www.manualslib.com/manual/199557/Zanussi-Zwn-1220-W.html?page=6#manual
Is there a reset procedure for this control panel?
The only reset procedure I can see in the manual is there on page 6 of the manual, to active/deactivate the acoustic signal, is there another procedure elsewhere in the manual?
Also, page 20, the paper manual supplied with the washer gives E fault codes (E10, 20, 40) which don't appear on my washer but the online manual I linked to displays how the fault codes appear on my washer - 2 lights - indicating a problem with water draining.
Just a final update, installed a new pressure switch as suggested above. Normal operation restored. Three washes done without problem.
Many thanks for your help with this.
