Question about Zanussi Dishwashers
Hi - I have a Zanussi ZSF6161 dishwasher that stopped working after I opened the door mid cycle. As it wouldn't restart and there was still water in the base, my husband and I have drained this off and now when I turn the dishwasher on the programme time flashes as well as the wash and dry lights (flash green). The salt and rinse aid stays solid red and nothing further happens. No error codes flash up but the machine doesn't start. Any advise on what the problem could be? Thanks :)

hi, just found this forum after searching the web 4 a solution to my hotpoint DWF50 problem.
I came down this morning to a machine which base tray was full of water and lights 3 ECO & 4 Fast flashing.
Anyway my solution was as i had seen a hotpoint engineer do once before was to press the start/reset button trip the catch, to fool the machine into thinking the door is closed then put in a program, press start, the machine hums slightly but doesnt do anything then after removing the large filter from the tray at the bottom underneath the lower basket insert a length of wire, with a loop on the end (Tip i used a wire coat hanger from the dry cleaners) poke in ythe hole that the dirty water drains from, after a bit of poking about the pump started working and the water drained away. Tip place a hook at the other end of your wire impliment to put your finger in to stop the wire getting caught in the pump mechanisim. After wards u have to hook back the door catch to the normal position, Tip another piece of the coat hanger with a right angled piece at the end will do this. This worked for me, saved me some money esp as D & G insurance ran out 2 weeks ago.....stu

The light cover on the side is loose causing it to flood remove the side and tighten the light cover the tilt the dishwasher to get water out of the float tray. let the dishwasher dry out and you should be grand

Thanks for using FixYa. The first thing that should be checked is if its draining properly as it could be that the drain hose is clogged and needs to be cleaned. The drain pump also should not be clogged. Also the stopcock should be opened fully and the water inlet valve should be checked for any clogs. Also the metal filter, impeller cover and the air gap unit should be checked. After checking this you can reset the error as follows: turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Then switch the appliance off and then back on again. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
