Zanussi DE540X Dear Tresilla Thankyou for your reply, my dishwasher does not get hot at all but stays stone cold throughout its cycle. As mentioned in earlier correspondance, i have tested the heater which seems ok, therefore is the problem likely to be the thermostat sensor. Regards

Re: Zanussi DE540X

Rather difficult to go further remotely. could be temp sensor. another place to look is at the module - have known quite frequently dry joints at the heater output. examine it carefully

Zanussi 6015 dishwasher washes in cold water

the dishwasher might accept cold water but must heat the water up during the cycle. If it does not then check the heater circuit......element...thermos NTC, with a meter for electrical continuity....some dishwashers stop mid cycle if the re is no heat but some go right through on cold depending on the make.. good luck

Washes but water does not heat up and dishes cold

The dishwasher does not heat up the water. The water should be hot coming into the dishwasher, check your hot water supply source, whether it be the hot water tank or be sure the water inlet for the dishwasher is not connected to the cold water line

Hi there I have a Zanussi zdf121 dishwasher which is only doing a cold wash, not heating at all. Not sure if its hot fill but the hot water is fine elsewhere. Any ideas please Pete

Do you have it hooked up to hot or cold water supply? Most residential dishwashers don't come equipped with a booster heater. If it's connected to the cold side, you'll have to replace the angle stop with a single outlet stop and replace the hot angle stop with a double outlet stop. This should help out, if not, make sure you have hot water in the faucet before starting the dishwasher. Most dishwashers need at least 120 degree hot water supply.

Lg dishwasher never heats water

The LG 7811 dishwasher is supposed to even support a cold water (vs. hot water) connection. Then it will heat the water up to 120 degrees upon each fill cycle. This is not optimal and it adds much time to the already long full cycle. When you run the hot water at the kitchen sink until it is hot and then kick off the cycle, is the water hot at the beginning? It should be 120 degrees minimum and well under 140 degrees maximum.
Do you get any error codes on the display? Troubleshooting is possible, but recommend you contact LG service at the number in the user guide asap. Press for fast, free resolution to this problem. Please reply when you have gotten this fixed, explaining what fixed this nice, quiet dishwasher. Good Luck!
PS: When you get it running, do not use ultra-cheap dishwasher soap. Recommend Electrosol powder or cascade. Never use gel or tablets on this water conserving dishwasher.

Is my zanussi aquapulse de 4744 dw hot or cold water fed ?

It is more than likely hot water fed. You can trace the line probably to under your kitchen sink and see where the line follows up to your hot/cold on your sink. There would be then another line coming off the hot which would lead to your dishwasher.

Dishwasher runs full cycles but the water is cold each time.

It's probably the heater element that has gone, but it could be a simpler fault like the pressure switch not activating. See this video it should give you the general idea

Zanussi dishwasher water input

it is possible but if you use a hot fill you will find that the rinse aid will produce a large amount of foam and the dishes wont dry properly

Water not hot

Dishwashers are suppose to be hooked up to hot water. If you had hotter water it would clean just fine. 120 deg or more!

Zanussi DE540X Dishwasher

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.
