Resetting Zanussi Anti Flood Device without removing built-in dishwasher

I think I know why the anti-flood device has been activated - my kitchen sink overflowed and water flowed across and behind the built in dishwasher. I don't want to pull the dishwasher out to tip because it looks like its been screwed in, and there are no obvious hand holds to pull it out. If I'm right about why the anti flood device has activated is there any other way (apart from pulling out and tipping the dishwasher) to reset the antiflood device? Do I have to wait for it to dry off? Best, Jamie

SOURCE: Dishwasher was tipped and won't run

I have the same problem if you take off the tray below the front door and set a small blow heater in there it will dry the out the anti flood switch. It usally takes about 25 mins for the machine to start working again.

SOURCE: newish Zanussi ZDF 511 dishwasher fills the antiflood device

Hello,
If you cannot find a leak then check that if you are using the 4 or 5 in one tablets that you are not using rinse aid seperately as this is also in the tablets and salt.Too much rinse aid can cause the dish washer to froth up and this can overflow down the underside of the door causing the problem you have.

Hope this helped.

Zanussi dishwasher anti flood device


There is a water level pressure switch that is your issue. Replace that or if youre lucky, clean the hose/pipe connected to the pressure switch and it could work again.

I just bought a dishwasher SE34E200SK. The washing program always gets stuck in program 3 and it cant move further unless one has to turn it manually. Also it doesnot empty out the waste water after...


Hello

Most faults can be referred to the fact that the Anti Flood Overflow device has activated.

Modern day dishwashers like those manufactured that have a built in safety feature protecting the dishwasher against flooding. The technical term is 'Anti Flood Device'.

In the base of the dishwasher in the plinth there is a float switch. This is your 'Anti Flood Device'. In the event of your dishwasher over filling, the plinth fills with water, the float rises and actuates the switch.

Firstly, it will send a signal to the programmer device to notify there is a fault and output a message in the form of a code to some sort of display.

Secondly, the pressure switch acts as the water level indicator for the sump of the dishwasher so when the water level rises the pressure switch will activate the drain pump.

So before you consider throwing good money at new dishwasher, try doing a bit of fault finding your self and you might save yourself a ton of money.

THE anti flood device has been activated. I have emptied the salt tank, how do I reset the safety valve on the water inlet hose?


The answer is that you don't reset the anti-flood device. The anti-flood device re-sets itself when there is no risk of a leak. I don't really understand why you emptied the salt tank . . . ?

I cannot help you any further than this as you haven't specified your brand and model of dishwasher. If you can post these, I will try try to help further - if it's a model I support.

Anti flood device has activated on my zanussi ZDF231,also there is quite aloud whirring sound ,like a motor struggling to work


The anti flood activates when water (even a small amount) appears on the bottom of the machiene. This is usualy a leaking pipe but can also be caused by a clogged pipe. Most machiens do have a plastic pipe that (from the flat water tank) feeds water to the bottom of the machiene in case of an internal fault. The anti flood is normaly a polystireen float with micro switch on the base of the washer. This automatically puts the outlet pump on to drain the water.

Need to know how to re-set the anti-flood device


I managed to clean the filter inside the dishwasher and drain a little residual water. I then re-plugged in the appliance and the anti-flood device seemed to reset and I have n't had any problems since.
