Zanussi 21 in. DCE5655 Free-standing Dishwasher

It fills up with water and all the lights are going off and starts to pump out the water. Durung the draining all controlls including the on/off button do not work and the door too. It kept repeating it. After some unplugging it from the mains a few times and leaving it off for a while now it just drains/pumps water out and no lights are on at all except the power on light. If the on/off button is off the light is off as well and it keeps pumping out water, the same happens if the door is opened.

    I've got the same problem - it wont turn off or respond to any of the buttons but it looks like you've been waiting 2 years for a response so I won't hold out much hope!

There is water in the bottom panel which has activated the float switch which overrides everything to stop the room the dishwasher is in from flooding. Remove the panel look for the leak. In my case one of the pipes had come off. There will be a lot of water in the panel so try and drain it first, tip the washer forward over some sort of container to catch the water. In my case I got very wet.

Washer didnt drain all the way and now i keep gettin a code. n the light for the door lock wont come on

If water is in tub and the control tries to drain tub but water doesn't drain, then the unit will not operate. Most LG have a drain pump clean out located behind the access door on lower side of washer. Open the door and you will see a black tube with a cap and a round knob. First, get a bucket, pull the black tube slightly out and remove cap. The water in the tub will start to drain and you may have to fill bucket many times to get all water out. Next, unscrew knob and a little screen will pull out. Inspect this screen and inside of pump chamber. Your looking for any thing that could block the pump. If pump hums and still doesn't drain, the drain pump is more than likely bad. Good Luck

Not finishing cycle

Is it draining out the water?? Dishwashers fill, spray, and drain more than several times during a cycle. After starting a cycle, let the unit fill, start spraying, and then cancel the cycle--listen for the drain pump activating and pumping out the water. If water is not being drained properly(within a certain time limit), the unit will error code out and stop. Also, make sure the filter is clear--if it gets clogged with "muck", enough water won't be sprayed onto the dishes properly, the pump will require too much energy to try to pump water, the control will sense this and shut down the unit to protect it.

Why when we start the wash the water goes in and drains right out so it just keeps doing that

check your drain hose going to the drain pipe in the wall. if the drain hose is lower than the highest water level on the unit, it will cause a siphoning issue. water will run into and the never fill enough to start into cycle. If unit is filling and the drain pump is on at the same time it is filling, then it is a bad control board.

My washing machine will not light up

Generally this problem happens when the drain pump starts to leak under the washing maching. A Fisher Paykel has a main control board under the touch panel that has direct wires running from it to the drain pump. When the drain pump leaks it shorts out the wire connecting it to the control board and blow out the main control. Look under washer and look for the drain pump (Drain pump looks like a fan from the underside.) You will most likely see residue from where the water has been leaking, built up on the pump. If all of the above is true on your machine, replace the pump and control board. Fisher Paykel includes an inline fuse to keep this from happening again.

Water pump is for removing water. Check the fill solenoid for water getting into unit. If defective unit will not fill. If stuck in on position you will have flooding. Go to this site for parts help Search Over 2 1 Million Appliance Parts

The power is on the cycle light is on but on the right the first two lights are flashing together. help zanussi aqua pulse de 6744 s

Hi, the first thing the dishwasher does is fill with water, so this sounds like a Anti Flood water pump problem this is just behind the water pipe that feeds the clean water into your machine, one thing to check is if the machine is empty of water at the moment, if the machine has water in the bottom then it could be the Drain Pump.

Got a zanussi dishwasher zsf6160, lights working but none of the programmes are starting, not taking in any water?

if you can here the drain pump run at the start the fault is with the water valve or blockage in the side tank on the lh side. if you dont here the drain pump it possibly the heater thats down to earth. the electronics can detact it and not start the prog if heater faulty.
