Small dirt particles left on dishes after cleaning I cleared the bottom drain opening going to the discharge. Is there a impeller I can't get to or something?


YES, AND IF IT WASHES AND DRAINS THE IMPELLER IS WORKING, THEY ARE USUALLY WHITE NYLON DEPENDING ON MFG. COULD BE FINE SEDIMENT FROM HOT WATER HEATER. IT IS A SOMEWHAT COMMON COMPLAINT.

Dishes not clean and glassware cloudy


The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com and get their new product. It filters the water and takes out the hard minerals that cause spots and clog dishwashers. It is very affordable and has a money back guarantee.

Electrical cord acts like it has a short


You could change the cord. Sometimes the wires will break inside the coating, it will appear as if nothing is wrong but can still have a problem .

The water during the cycle does not heat up. Has the heating element gone? Regards Zika


there is a way to test the elementy to see i f the element is indeed burnt out. You will need to get a continuity tester. First shut off all power to unit. Once you have shut off the power, remove wiring from both posts of the element. (remember to mark the wires as to replace them correctly when finished) once you have removed the wiring take your tester and touch one probe to one post the other probe to the other post. If you get a signal from the tester your element isn't burnt out and your problem lies elsewhere. Good Luck

I have a DX302 and it is not drying at the end of the cycle.


a friend had the same problem and i found that the circuit tracks that go to the relay that controls the element had burnt off. solved by soldering on some new tracks. The problem is quite obvious when you pull the controller apart, burn marks and missing tracks. You just need someone that's handy with a soldering iron.

Dishlex DX302SB Dishwasher water not heating, have changed the heating element without any success.


Who posted this comment I am really appreciative. I have had the same problem with my dishlex. I disassembled the plumbing and removed a chunk of plastic wrapping from inside the pump. Then I checked the heater with a multimeter. It measured fine.
The next day I read this post and have since removed the controller. I found the burnt solder joint mentioned. I have since cleaned up the mess, repaired the circuit board, re-soldered the effected component and the dishwasher is now working better than ever.

I have read elsewhere that this problem arises when the door is opened while the heater is on and the program hasn't been paused. I don't know if that is the exact cause but in my house we will be more careful about that from now on.

The damage to the circuit board was on the Normally Open terminal of the relay used to control the heater. The heater is marked as being about 2100 watts. The relay is marked as being able to switch 125Vac. Which is interesting because power here in Australia is 240Vac. At 240Vac the heater will draw a little under 10 amps when operating.

Anyway the circuit board trace is possibly a little narrow at the point where the burnt connection was and I can see why it would have burnt out. The other terminals on the relay were showing signs of becoming dry joints too. The repair was effected by completely removing the relay, cleaning all the joints, re-soldering the relay and laying a loop of tinned solid wire around the burnt terminal to replace the missing piece of circuit trace.

Anyone who has a little skill with a soldering iron could perform this repair. The worst that could happen is you could lift what is left of the circuit trace from the board. Since the controller is already broken you can have a go and probably save yourself the cost of a new controller.

Zanussi dishwasher DE6744 power indicator light on but when program buttons pressed nothing happens


Hi,
I had the same problem, in my dishwasher ZDI6895sx the solution to my problem was in the connection between the main PCB and the display/ control pcb on which the buttons/ led's etc are mounted.

On my machine there are about 8 wires in a ribbon type connector which connect the two pcb's, the connection to the main PCB is soldered and on the smaller PCB is a push on fitting, the connections on this pcb are prone to oxidation, there could also be stress on the connector from all of the button pushing, check the connecting wires for continuity with a multimeter if possible but otherwise just remove the connector from the samller pcb clean well(reflow with solder if required) and reseat the connector in its original configuration.

As always only perform this repair if you feel confident and have turned all power to the machine off prior to dismantling.

Let me know how you get on.
