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.

The dish washer washes ok, but often does not dry the dishes. I have descaled and cleaned it but still hit and miss. can i fix it my self. thank you Chris


You didn't state the precise model, but if it's a cold-fill only machine (most Zanussi models are) and if it uses condensation drying like most, then a cold water supply is essential for the latter to work.

Many owners connect such machines to the hot supply in the mistaken belief that it will make the machine cheaper to run, but unless they have free hot water (solar heating?) then it's usually a falsehood and the trade-off is incomplete or non-existent drying.

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

How do i reset the dishwasher when light is flshing but not run


Hi

To reset the Dishwasher when the light is flashing press in sequence normal wash, heat dry, normal wash, heat dry, normal wash, heat dry three times within 6 sec all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that D/W does not heat its own water your incoming water temp should be 120. The D/W will maintain that temp. When starting your D/W first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your D/W this insures your unit fills with hot water and not cold.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Indesit DG6100W problem...please help!


Hi, I have the same dishwasher and it fills from the cold supply, not the hot and it doesn't have a cold cycle as is previously suggested, as you will know kellyemb :-)

The Indesit DG6100W does a fill from the cold and heats as it washes, so if it's sticking part way through, it could be the heating element. Have you tried opening the door when it sticks and seeing if the water is hot? The heating element went on ours and it kept tripping the electric whenever the it tried to start to heat the cold water. If it is the element, they don't cost much to replace, even cheaper if you know someone who can fit it for you! Ours cost us around £12 and hubby fitted.

The only other thing I can think of is it might be the timer, like someone has suggested but how to reset it, I have no idea. I have seen on another website that a replacement timer is around £55 plus VAT, which is a little expensive.

Hope you get it fixed.

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.

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

Problems! zanussi zsf6120


You can check the heating element with an ohmmeter and it should read a few hundred ohms. Don't know about the thermostat but it should be inline electrically with the heating element and should ohm as a short when cold.

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!
