Question about Zanussi 18 in. DA4342 Free-standing Dishwasher
I have found a temporary solution to the lack of water by pouring water into the dishwasher just after it finishes draining at the beginning of its cycle and then adding more a couple more times as soon as it finishes draining. I have cleaned all tubes etc to no avail. I don't know where the float is to check if this is stuck. Also can't locate the inlet valve. Have found the float switch I think behind the front base plate but would like to be able to check if the valve and float are in working order first. The machine drains all water when cycle is finished - so I have been adding water before turning the machine on to prevent the element overheating - this glows red if left unchecked. Is it worth fixing anyway as this is a fairly old model - works very well when I pour in jugs of water!

You need to reset the computer on the bottom. Had the same problem with mine. The Blinking led means the heating element is bad and will not operate.

I think that the problem is the water inlet valve if the machine is not filling at all.
If the machine is not filling to the correct level, it may be the float switch.
