    I have the same problem, this is the second time I've had this the first time was a few years when it was new I called zanussi they told me to press some buttons in a particular order to reset the machine trouble is I cant remeber what the sequence was.



    Just in case you dont know this is a fail safe mechanism when the machine has a fault to drain any water

    I think I have just suffered the same problem! At first water started leaking out of the front of the machine, then it just keeps trying to empty the water out of it. It does not matter whether the power button is pressed or not, as soon as I switch it on at the mains it starts trying to pump the water out. Did anyone manage to fix this?

    Thanks.

There's a water leak inside, causing the anti[ flood micro switch to activate. Even a couple of tea spoonfuls of water will cause this. Remove the cover and check the polystyrene float at the bottom. A very small amount of water there will cause the problem. Check for any water leaks or even a slight water surge when the machine starts.

    Hi Jordan...maybe you could help...? I turn my power off at night on my Zanussi DCE 5655 and sometimes it works for the first run the following morning. Otherwise it seems to fail. I got a hunch it is an issue with the polystyrene float. Please can you offer any steps in laymans terms as I dont follow "change the L subport conversion chamber and remove the restricter plate" Many thanks

The motor runs in one direction to wash and the opposite direction to pump out the water. Look at the motor direction controls to see what is starting to fail.

Cycle starts, but does not fill with water


When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'. When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20 times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time, the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly, everything works fine, including the rinsing.

How to remove a pump filter plug on a zanussi was machine I have removed the cap but can't get the filter out is there a tool to use. Thanks


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
No tool, just patience and time! Had the same problem with our Bosch, cap would not even turn!
Suggestions- pour anticalc/limescale fluid into any gap there is around the filter. Empty the machine and you can switch it off providing the door is open! Then pour the contents of at least 2 sachets of proprietary anticalc powder/liquid into the drum direct together with a kettle full of boiling water. Leave overnight at the very least. The following day run just a spin cycle as then there will be no water diluting the mix. This mix will go through the filter and motor and is likely to help release the filter/cap. If you feel like it, do the overnight again. If nothing else it will ensure that the heater element is clean!
I had to spend a couple of hours gently turning the cap back and forth until it finally released its hold- but the filter did not remain attached to the cap by its rubber ring. More patience, anticalc fluid and all was revealed!
I now run an anticalc clean regularly............which reminds me..............!
Good luck

My Zanussi ZWD 1470W won't fill up with water. I


Story could be lengthly so in brief, check to see if drain pump is not blocked and if door latch is functioning correctly.(use a multimeter if you can). If it all measures out as good, then your control is faulty. Does the water fill up to the correct level when you start the cycle? Does the motor hum when trying to run. If so check the capacitor.

Water remains at bottom after dish cycle is complete . Dishes come out clean and everything seems normal except for the water that remains at the bottom of the dish washer. I realize that a small amount of...


Set the controls to off then power off at the mains for 30 mins and then power mains back on and run a drain program or a full wash program. If the water won’t drain away then the most likely problems are the door interlock switch is faulty, the drain water motor is faulty, there is a blockage in the drain outlet pipe or filter – this will need unblocking, there is a blockage in the water pump – this will need to be unblocked, the controller board is faulty – but this generally shows an error code. First turn off the mains power to the dishwasher then check the internal filter and screen and clean it thoroughly. Then check the waste water hose and any outlet valve and make sure that it is unblocked and free of any obstruction or waste material. If you have access to the water pump you can check that it is free of obstruction and is able to turn and that none of the impeller vanes have been damaged. Then if all this is OK then try turning on the mains power and running a hot wash cleaning cycle to flush out any remaining sludge / debris.

If the outlet pipe is clear and the pump motor is turning and there is no pump damage then there has to be a blockage somewhere. You could lay the out pipe flat on the ground with the end draining into a tray to see if any water actually does come out. If it does then you do not have a total blockage. This is because it will be most likely draining out of the machine due to gravity and shows that there may be a partial blockage of the pump is defective even though the motor may be running. You will need to remove the pipes to and from the pump to check for blockages and also remove the pump to inspect for damage to the impeller or a blockage in the pump housing where the hoses connect. If the pump housing is clear and the impeller can be turned freely with your fingers then the direct coupled or belt driven linkage between the motor and the pump is the most likely broken and will need repair or replacement. If the impeller cannot be turned easily and does not turn with the motor running then the impeller or the direct linkage is either seized or broken and will need replacing. If your pump and impeller is belt driven then check that the belt is not slipping – this will normally result in increased noise and a possible smell of burning rubber.
