Question about Zanussi 24 in. DA6141 Built-in Dishwasher
I have fitted a new inlet valve, but there is still no water entering the machine. If I put water in manually it works fine, drains fine also.I live in an area where scale is not a problem.
IT COULD BE THE FLOAT SWITCH ASSEMBLY> PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING VERY CAREFULLY AS WATER AND POWER DONT MIX WELL Before testing the float switch, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard. When the water in the tub lifts the float to a set point, the float switch is triggered and it shuts off the water inlet valve, stopping the flow of water. If the float switch is defective, the tub may overfill.If the float switch is obstructed or corroded it can prevent the tub from filling by holding the fill valve off !!so locate, check and clean. To access the float switch remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel. Note the location of the float in the dishwasher's tub and you will find the float switch beneath it in the access area. The switch has two wires connected to it. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced. Use a continuity tester or multitester to test for continuity. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. You should get a reading of either zero or infinity. With the probes still in place, depress the button or lever on the switch and the reading should change to the opposite extreme

The same problem with a Zanussi DWS 694: no water intake.
The first thing to try is (after cleaning with hot water and soda until really proper) is to close the water tap and let the dishwaher run for a short while with a closed tap. This releases the pressure from the water tap.
Next, open the tap again and let i it run again.
You have a fair chance it will take water in again.
This procedure releases the overflow safety valve and works only if the cause is removed (by cleaning the dishwasher).

Very good. My wife had let the sink overflow and the water found its way into the dishwasher. All the water had gone but the foam float had stuck to the button on the switch. One touch and it dropped free and the water came back on.

If you float switch is all good...Check to make sure the water valve under the sink is turned ON (start with the basics) Then check to see if you have power to the inlet valve at fill. BE VERY CAREFULLY use a Multitester to check voltage if you have no voltage you have a bad timer... Hope this helps
