Zanussi ZWD1262W showing control board fault on drying but only if drying time set greater than 6 minutes

Recommended Posts

I have a ZWD1262W. It works fine as a washing machine. However if I try to use the drying function it will initially work (run, air heats up etc) but where I set the drying time equal to or greater than 6 minutes then on count down the machine will stop and the led lights flash. When looking at the diagnostics it shows a control board fault. (If I set the drying time less than 6 minutes all is ok. The machine will also reset OK and function until again a drying time of more than 6 minutes is selected and on countdown the same fault occurs)

I tried a new heater but this didn't make any difference (thought perhaps an earth fault). 

I have found a replacement pcb (used) but it was for a different model of machine (though is an identical board). Is there a way of configuring the pcb to the ZWD1262W by using the buttons/ dial on the operator panel of the machine (photo of dials/ buttons attached)?

Hello there. It might be a bit of messing about but could you try setting it for 5 minutes, then turning it off then setting it again for another 5 minutes? In other words it might be useful to find out if it is something about the program software running for longer than 6 minutes or is it more to do with it having physically run for more than 6 minutes. In other words could something be overheating, or is it something about the program lasting longer than 6 minutes?
