When I press the button to commence wash, it is green then goes red and no wash. Please can you help.
JA: What's the brand and model of your appliance? How old is it?
Customer: Zanussi Lindo 100. I think about 5 years but would need to check.

Customer: It only happened today. I did try unplugging it, but that didn't work.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Good evening,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your appliance today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that can be.

To help me better assist you, please provide its complete model number (from the label/rating plate located inside the door).

Just checking.

OK, Thanks.

If you do not have the model number please provide its PNC number (starts with 9...)

On some Zanussi models those flashing Green and Red buttons indicate an error code.

Without the information requested in my previous response, I can only give you a general answer, but I hope this helps.

If it starts to fill then stops then this indicates a fault with motor that is faulty and will need replacement.

However, if it won't fill at all then I am afraid the door lock and/or control is faulty and will need replacement.

I hope this helps, please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions.
I hope you enjoyed your experience with today.
Have a wonderful evening.
