You can check the heating element with an ohmmeter and it should read a few hundred ohms. Don't know about the thermostat but it should be inline electrically with the heating element and should ohm as a short when cold.

SOURCE: I brought a Zanussi ZDT6053 integrated. - Fixed in position - buttons light up but does not fill in oor start.

Dearest FixYa,
Thanks ever so much for your prompt response and am ever so grateful for standing to support anyone in problem.
Fortunately, I have solved the problem.
Basically the problem was that the water supply tube would kink when unit was pushed back into its space under the kitchen top. And it was totally difficult to see that problem from he rear of the unit.
Last effort wasto monitor every thing as the unit was showly pushed bak under the kitchen top. This time it was discovered that the water tube happened to be seen clearly from underneath the unit as 'kinked'.
When straightened, the unit simply went 'full in motion, and hey presto it worked straignt away.
Thanks for your 'standing by' to support with an army and great team of 'experts behind you.
Sincere regards

SOURCE: Stays in wash cycle Whirlpool Dishwasher Du1050SS

my repairman contacted whirlpool about my washing machine staying on
wash.. to his surprise.. and mine.. and his co=workers.. this is the answer,
it worked.. and we have never heard this before.

In your original istallation booklet it tells you to let the dishwasher run til its complete
the first time you use it as it may rinse twice... my original installation man told me this also.

however.. if you suffer a "blip" in your electricity.. it could put the little dishwasher "brain"
out of whack.. it can run as long as 3 to 4 hours on wash to reset itself.. if you stop it
(like others have mentioned.. and which I did also).. it doesn't complete the reset and it
will attempt to do it the next time..

answer?.. just let it go once as unnerving as this is.. it works.. They did mention that
if it went to 5 hours.. call your repairman because you need a new mechanism.

SOURCE: My GE dishwasher will fill then it stops. The wash

The pump/motor combination is stuck.
Disconnect power to the unit.
Remove the toe-kick panel at the bottom front.
You will see fan fins at the back of the motor.
Turn the fan fins counter-clockwise.Turn to the left and hold the position with a screwdriver. Then turn left again. You will feel when the stuck motor shaft frees itself.
After it frees,resume power and run the dw.
If it does not break free you will have to replace the pump and motor.

Eureka! thank you FixYa. My Zannusi de6965 was failing to heat up andf finish the programe and showing Al3 read a number of your contributers and after stripping down the front of the DISH WASHER found my way into the main circuit board and there they were 2 two DRY JOINTS ( where the blue and orange wires connect) cleaned and re-soldered then re- assembled and tested.... Eureka! it worked just fine.Remember to take care when disconnecting the internal wiring from the circuit board. I colour marked each connector block and made a drawing. Thanks again hope this helps.

My dishwasher starts the cycle, then stops leaving water in the bottom. How do I correct this?


Make sure there is voltage to the pump and motor assembly... if it doesn't wash at all it may not be filled with hot enough water to start the cycle either- so try it on regular temp cycle with no heat and see if it is responsive... run the tap water next to the unit until it is as hot as your supply can provide

A dishwasher whirlpool fill water but no work wash.drain ok


Water temp is not hot enough.. Sensors. heating element might not be heating up to activate the pump to wash. Try making sure water is hot at the sink before starting dishwasher..

The dish washer fills and wash cycle begins, however stuck at wash does not progress to rinse cyle


you should check the heating element. if the water is not hot enough, the timer will not advance. crack open the door mid-cycle. let the water stop flying around. then open it all the way up. if you don't get a big ball of steam, you have an indication that your heating element may not be working properly. this is not too hard to check the resistance with a multimeter and then replace, if necessary. good luck

Matsui mf160 starts its wash cycle and timer stops


on most machines, the timer will not run if the water is not up to temp. if the inside is plenty hot mid-cycle, then your heating element is probably good. it is the thermometer that needs located and checked. if the inside is not steamy, then your heating element is the most likely culprit.
don't hate your dishwasher. it just wants to make sure that you get a full wash cycle at a hot enough temp. to get the dishes clean. good luck

Dishwasher does not wash


If you are saying that in the wash cycle it fills and then stops it could be that your water temp is too low. Some models will stop to heat the water in the main wash before going into the agitate mode.

Hi there I have a Zanussi zdf121 dishwasher which is only doing a cold wash, not heating at all. Not sure if its hot fill but the hot water is fine elsewhere. Any ideas please Pete


Do you have it hooked up to hot or cold water supply? Most residential dishwashers don't come equipped with a booster heater. If it's connected to the cold side, you'll have to replace the angle stop with a single outlet stop and replace the hot angle stop with a double outlet stop. This should help out, if not, make sure you have hot water in the faucet before starting the dishwasher. Most dishwashers need at least 120 degree hot water supply.

Fills with water, sounds like it starts to pump water then stops, then start again. It attempts to start pumping water 3 or 4 times them turns off leaving the water in the tub. I have read about the water...


you have a wash pump problem. can be 1 of 3 things. most likely something is caught in the pump impelor if not the wash pump motor may be faulty or ceized or it could be the capacitor for the wash pump motor is faulty. you can try removing the wash pump yourself and check the impelor if it spins freely then you will have a motor problem.
hope this helped

Zanussi da4342 dishwasher


The dishwasher should heat the water to about 55 C as the heating cycle starts. In these cycle, the dishwasher pauses after has filled with water and wait for the water to reach the temperature. If the water isn't being heated (because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues.
Another possible reason is that the timer unit is defective. If you have observed anything different post a comment.

Dishwasher


I have not heard of or seen this dishwasher but I do know on a lot of dishwashers if the water is not hot enough it will heat the water and the heating light will come on to let you know. On most models if the washer has to heat the water it will prolong the wash time. It may do this through out the wash and rince cycles. dont be surprized if your dishwasher runs 90 min or longer. This is normal for most all dishwashers now. I would read the owners guide and get to know whats normal for your unit.
