It is inside the cabinet of the dishwasher, pull it out if build in to see the pump.

Sounds like your 'anti flood' system is activated. This happens when a leak fills the drip tray on the base of the machine, and a anti flood float switch senses water in the tray. Leaks can come from several sources - loose pipes, leaking door gaskets - even opening the door while the machine is hot! i.e. to add an extra item after the machine has started, for example. ISOLATE THE POWER and examine the base tray, if its a free standing machine tip the machine back at an angle (The Hemlich manoeuvre for Dishwashers lol) and the water will flood out - if built in, remove the lower front panel. Once the water is removed, the machine should start - but if the problem occurs, the leak is still there. Zanussi machines are tricky - you'll probably need an engineer to sort it out - expect not much change out of £100. Cheers!

Please try and drain off the water manually by releasing the drain from below , now open the door and check the DOOR switch. If this is faulty the program can get struck. Make sure the contacts of the switch is clean. Secondly check the pressure pump , if faulty this will not work to spray water. Finally the possibility of the program controller being a suspect cannot be ruled out.

Just had this problem, I have a temp set up and found the drain was a bit to high. Put a bucket of water in to the machine and lowered the hose. It went through its cycle and emptied. now works OK, seems that it needed to empty to re-setrt the cycle. Worth a try
