    Hi,
    We have a Zanussi ZWF14280W washing machine.
    Basically, it gets part way through a programme, with some time remaining on the display, then the time on the display increases to a much higher figure. I changed the brushes (had done that a couple of years ago too) but to be honest they didn't need changing.
    Had changed the heater element about a year ago. All was fine until recently.
    Ran a programme yesterday and it was fine. Ran the same programme a second time yesterday and got the problem.
    No error code so whilst in this error state went through the diagnostics error code procedure and got E52.
    On a different and possibly more suspicious note, when I had the machine apart, I noticed that due to the tray being clogged up and not shut properly, water had been getting on the PCB. There's some black carbon dust (possibly due to some short circuit re the water getting in). Cleaned all that up and had a close look at all the components. No visible signs of burnt out components but then you never know.
    If this E52 error code is due to the PCB being knackered, then considering the cost of the PCB, I think it's game over for this machine. If it's something cheap and easy to try with a good probability of it working, then I'll give it a go.
    Ideas, suggestions anyone???

    As an addition, if it is game over from this machine, any ideas where I can get another one of these older models, as we quite like it and I also have quite a few spare parts for it now.

    I can't really see it being anything other than a board problem them, possibly the software has been corrupted. Not a DIY job I'm afraid you will need to get a Zanussi engineer to look at it. Ask for a quote first as it is usually not an economic repair.

    Getting a PCB for this machine looks quite tricky. also the ones that are available are looking a bit pricey. Might just set of we can get away with just not using that duff programme. Funny thing is that sometimes it does actually work. Thanks for your help
