Re: ZANUSSI 695 Integrated Dishwasher

The detergent cup can become clogged with old dried detergent that prevents it from opening at time. Sometimes just cleaning the cup takes care of the problem. The detergent cup opened by a bi-metal switch or a wax motor located inside your dishwasher door(behind the detergent cup). If cup's cleaning will not solve the problem, you should replace the bi-metal switch or the wax motor (depend which of them is used in your machine). Another option is just to place the detergent tablet on washer's bottom before starting its cycle. Good luck !

The detergent isn't despensing correctly. The door seems to be functioning correctly; however after the cycle is complete I open the door and just runs down the door. It never actually gets used. ...

Check the way you're loading your dishwasher. Sometimes large plates or baking pans can block the door of the dispenser. The latch unlocks but because the door is blocked, the detergent can't get out. Once you open the main door, the dispenser door pops open and looks as if it has been in the fully opened position when it was actually held in place by that large utensil!Cutting boards are major blockers as well.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to fixya and rate my answer!

Soap dispenser opens, but detergent doesn't disolve and runs down front of door. Have tried several different detergents with no result.

You may have a hot water problem. The water when hot will disolve
the soap or detergent. The dishwasher hasits own heater to heat
the water entering the dishwasher. Check the electrical connections
below the dishwasher to make sure your heater is working. It may be just
a loose connection.
If this is not the case, then a service repait man will need to be called,
to determine why it is not heating the water.

Detergent tablet not dissolving.

sometimes the dispenser doors are not designed for tablets, and they don't let enough water in to dissolve time you wash; put the tablet in one of the silverware compartments....should do the trick. and leave the dispenser door for liquid detergents only.

if this is helpful please click the correct button. thanks

Detergent does not dissolve.

Make sure that the water supply going to the dishwasher is HOT. Detergent will not disolve in cold water.

The soap fails to disolve!

Having the dishwasher powder failing to dissolve is a far more common problem recently with the filing economy.  People are trying to save money by buying generic dishwasher powder rather than brand name products.  The ultra-cheap products fail to dissolve because their ingredients include bulk fillers with minerals, etc.
It is possible that the dispenser is failing to open, but that is a generally rare problem except on very, very old dishwashers. Before deciding the dishwasher has failed, go buy a box of brand name (Electrosol or Cascade) dishwasher detergent powder and only use it.
Please report back your results here, OK?  Good Luck!

Most dishwashers work best when the food is rinsed off the dishes before they are put in the dishwasher. Also, run the hot water into the sink until it is hot and then turn on the dishwasher. good luck.
