Zanussi built in aquasave zt 685

The dishwashed did not drain properly. When you turn off the machine & start again it sounds like it is starting but there is no sound of water entering. After a few minutes when you open the door a few buttons are flashing.

Re: Zanussi built in aquasave zt 685

I think I had a similar problem to this. It seems like it was starting a cycle but then it just stalled and made a buzzing noise and it did not drain properly. I opened the bottom of the dishwasher where the draining pump was located. take off the plastic cover and I found bits of broken plates were jamming the fins on the pump... Try this and see how it goes.. Hope it was of some asistance.

Since water doesn't drain out properly ,it could be a clog in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Good luck!

My machine seems to be stuck on a drain cycle

Sounds like your 'anti flood' system is activated. This happens when a leak fills the drip tray on the base of the machine, and a anti flood float switch senses water in the tray. Leaks can come from several sources - loose pipes, leaking door gaskets - even opening the door while the machine is hot! i.e. to add an extra item after the machine has started, for example. ISOLATE THE POWER and examine the base tray, if its a free standing machine tip the machine back at an angle (The Hemlich manoeuvre for Dishwashers lol) and the water will flood out - if built in, remove the lower front panel. Once the water is removed, the machine should start - but if the problem occurs, the leak is still there. Zanussi machines are tricky - you'll probably need an engineer to sort it out - expect not much change out of £100. Cheers!

There is smelly water left in the Salt container. How can I solve this and drain it away? What is the cause? The model of dishwasher is Zanussi, Aquasave, DW24.

I was very disappointed to find out that you did not actually offer me a solution to this (surely very simple) problem. For this reason I certainly would not take out a plan with a company like yours. You have offered me no advice whatsoever although you promised assistance.
You are obviously a company that cannot be relied on.

Zanussi zdt6053 will not fill with water, on any programme, it appears to try to start and makes a moise as if pumping, but there is not water to drain, and pump appears to operate if water is poured into...

Check float valve. It is probably stuck. This tells yuor machine to pump the water out and keeps the water valve from opening. Often it is something small that was placed in the dishwasher and lodges under the float telling machine that it is full of water when it is not. The float is somewhere on the bottom inside the machine typically. Make sure it moves freely.

Zanussi zdt 6252

I had the same problem with Zanussi ZDT 6252. To fix it, turn power on, close door fully, then open door, turn off then turn back on again. If you follow this sequence the machine is reset and you can select programs again.
