Yes, but I would check to make sure power is getting to the valve before replacing. Usually if you hear a buzzing, then power is going to the valve. The best way is with a meter on A/C setting then put it on OHM setting to check the solenoids on the valve. I would buy a meter at an appliance parts store so they can show you how to use it. It's not that difficult and everyone should have one.

Will not fill with water


Hi


When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages.
If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

We have a Zanussi that has been fine for 2 years but the last week it has turned a powdery white inside and on the door with all the dishes becoming chalky. There is rinse aid and salt. Hope you can help


Dishwashers have a part usually called a separator or accumulator which traps the dirt from the water during the wash cycles while the water is continuously recycled to clean the dishes. At the end of the cycle the separator is flushed out and the trapped dirt goes down the drain. If it doesn't get flushed out the dirt builds up till it starts showing up on the dishes. Some separators have a hole on top and one on bottom with a valve which stops up one hole or the other depending which cycle it's running. The valve can be stuck or broken causing the problem.

Dishwasher power there but wont fill up with water makes a slight buzz sound any ideas please ?? It's a Zanussi zdt6252 by the way..


The slight buzz is coming from the water inlet valve solinoid. It's OK.

But check whether water is getting into the inlet tube of the washer. Check the filter at the rear of the dish washer body wher the inlet tube from your water tap is connected.

Water does not pump in to the washer.


Fill Valve shot or blocked

Take the supply pipe off the back and clean out the filter inside the opening (They get blocked with mains supply rubbish)

If it still does not fill it is the valve solenoid so it is a new item required

Washer fails to start. Power o.k. and water supply on. Filters cleaned. When set to start makes regular sound as if trying to start cycle. Any advice please?


Hi.


Check if the water is flowing inside machine or not.


If the tub is not filling, test the water level device (usually a float switch located on a side inside the tub).

Ensure that the switch is not stuck, and test the switch using a multimeter to ensure it is closing and opening. Disconnect power before testing the switch.


If water level is OK, then test the water valve.

The inlet valve is tested reading impedance on valve solenoid contacts. Disconnect power and remove the valve first.

If the valve solenoid is showing no continuity, then the valve must be replaced.

A dual valve sometimes can also be tested swapping hot and cold inlet contacts.


All test and repairing must be done by a professional.


To get a quote on repair, check warranty status or get parts, call Zanussi at the number listed on the owners manual.

Dishwasher wont fill with water


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

Hi,

Either it's not getting enough water to flip over to the next part of it's cycle (unlikely) or the water float gauge is not working properly.

When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher --usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring loaded). Lift out the float mechanism and clean around the float tube; many floats must be disconnected from below--to do this you'll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, then replace it in the tube and be sure it moves up and down freely.

If you're experienced with minor repair work shut off the hot water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher's bottom front panel, disassemble the valve to reveal the screen, clean debris from the screen, and reassemble. If the screen doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson (they will probably need to replace the water intake valve).

If none of this helps, call a repair person. Any of several parts, including water inlet valve, pressure switch, and the timer or selector switch, may be faulty.
