Yes sounds like some kind of water leak. Take of the front plinth and check underneath the units and DW. I presume you DW is adjacent to the sink so please cheak all pipes including waste asap. Also opening the DW door whilst it is running can splash water, over a period of time this could effect wood material and cause your problem.

Hi - yes these units are fitted with what we refer to as waterproof hoses, any leaks from the inlets would leak into the machine.

Now you could check if the connection has been fitted correctly to the taps, secondly if there are any impediments causing the valve to stay slightly open hence the leak.

Unless your water pressure is exceptionally higher than norm which is doubtful. I cannot think of anything else otherwise you will need to replace the inlet unit which are not exactly cheap.

See how you go & will check back in a day or ....

I may have leaked water into the mother board ciruitry. This can happen when there is a tiny leak or when steam gets in. Check with kitchenaid, that is a good product and kitchen aid will stand by thier equipment.

I have just recently noticed a black mouse and it always seems to go back underneath by dishwasher but i have a Frigidaire Ultra Quiet not a Maytag. Could the mouse be living inside of it?


I'll be he's just hanging out underneath...hey it's warm under there... There's no way he could be getting IN the unit. Remember the dishwasher cabinet is a sealed unit...it's gotta keep the water inside w/o leaks... with the door closed, that is..
There's a little space under your dishwasher that's a great mouse house... eek!

ZANUSSI DE6855 DISHWASHER - NO HEAT FOR WASHING OR DRYING


Make sure you unplug before you start. I had the same problem with a DE6850. The heater was ok. Metered at 25.ohms. Apparently, the relay on the control board mounted in the front door behind the switches is a common fault. Remove the screws around the top part of the door and you will be able to get at the control module. Resolder the connection. Zanussi reliability has been lost. Noel P31bf5e2.jpg

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.

I found the solution myself. On the bottom plate, there is a float and a microswitch, when the water leaks onto the bottom plate it raises the float and activates the microswith which shuts down the machine and shows E4 on display. To get rid of the fault, you have to tilt the machine and drain the water from the bottom plate. Also make sure that there is no leak in the internal piping, if there is, the fault will come back as soon as the recess in the bottom panel fills with water.

in some cases it is the water metering tank on the left hand side that gets bunged up and needs cleaning, next is the water feeding pipes. if everything is clean and the water valve supply is ok then it will need a special mod kit to be fitted, which will need to be fitted by a pro. tony.
