Zanussi DE540X Dishwasher

My dishwasher runs through its selected cycle ok via push-button control however does to get hot. I stripped the unit down to test the heater element (part no: 50277796004) which measured 26ohms impedance around its terminals, this would imply the heater element is ok. Any ideas what a working dishwasher heater element should read. Or, am i barking up the wrong tree and the fault is with the temp sensing element. Any help would be gratefully received!!

I have the same problem. First fault was caused by poor workmanship on the assembly of the PCB. There is a relay (the largest component on the board) which was badly soldered and caused some arcing resulting in solder splattered around the plastic casing and a lost electrical connection. This relay switches the mains voltage on to the heater i.e. 240V around 8.5A for a 2kW heater. (26 ohms suggests a 2215W heater for the case mentioned). Re-soldering this connection solved the problem for about a year. Now the dishwasher is showing the same problem. I have tested the relay and it is operational, but does not seem to be turning on during a wash cycle. A new board costs around £100. Zanussi will not even provide the technical details to allow a home fix. I will post my finding if I get to the bottom of this problem. It may be to do with electrical temperature sensor. My hunch is the controlling PCB is cheaply made and will not last a reasonable lifetime. A dishwasher is in itself a very simple piece of equipment with only a few valves, a pump and a heater so should not give problems in its first five years of life subject to normal usage. I will not consider purchasing any Zanussi appliances in the future.

Dishwasher took 3 hours to complete cycle


If you have set the unit to heated water or your hot water is not hot will delay the wash cycle. The heater in the dishwasher is very slow!
The following is from the user manual.
15
TROUBLESHOOTING
First try the solutions suggested here and possibly avoid
the cost of a service call...
Dishwasher is not operating properly
Dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle
Is the door closed tightly and latched?
Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the "Cycle Selection
Charts."
Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown or circuit breaker tripped?
Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
Is the water shut-off valve (if installed) turned on?
Dishwasher will not fill
Is the overfill protection float able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.
Dishwasher seems to run too long
Is the water supplied to the dishwasher hot enough? The
dishwasher runs longer while heating water. Refer to the
"Dishwasher Efficiency Tips" section.
A delay automatically occurs in some wash and rinse cycles
until the water reaches the proper temperatur

Hope this helps?

Currys essential dishwasher CID45B13 turns on but wash cycle programme buttons will not select / work.


Hi , it sounds like your panel that the buttons push onto is needing looked at sometimes they just need a clean. If you don't know how to do this with the power off and stripping the unit down then i advise you to have it repaired or claim under warranty if it is still in warranty.

Whirlpool Dishwasher won't drain during normal cycle


As you say a clogged line or valve does not make sense.

Try running it without the heated drying and see if it empties or if the cancel button will work then.

The dishes should air dry quickly if you empty it and open the door.

It could be a defective thermostat allowing it to get too hot during the heat cycle

The flashing light blinks 7 times on the clean indicator area , but the dishwasher will not function and when you press cancel it starts running but nothing washes through any cycle at all. please help


ok well usually it is not sensing a temperature change in the water or not getting hot enough. so you can reset the dishwasher and try running the hot water in the sink before starting the dishwasher. if it fails again there is a heating element and control board kit that would need to be installed. you can reset the dishwasher by pushing "high temp wash" and "heated dry" back and forth until all the lights light up then you can hit the cancel and drain button twice.. put detergent in and run it.

My dishwasher works but is taking a long time to finish the cycle it is a zanussi DA 6373


Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

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.
