I've just had similar - seems to be a problem in the controller module - they're reasonably inexpensive online.
Undo the top-part of the door, about 5 screws across the top and side - the top section pops out, and the control module is now on the inside - if you free off the connectors (not too simple, but doable) you'll probably find some scorch marks on the PCB ... hopefully the wiring isn't damaged, and you can just replace the PCB ...
If you also have wiring damage, well, trace back and replace as required
(probably too late for the OP, but worth recording in any case)

Hi, I have a zanussi de6965 had the same problem the only indicator light that works is the on-off button.I had a problem some years ago with my machine would not work and showed L3 as the fault as I remember. I was advised to switch off all power isolate from the wall is best(pull the plug out of the socket) I removed the front casing held along the top and down the inside by a number of small screws. You need to leave the two bottom screws in(one each side) Wiggle free the top half of the display panel to acess the box holding the PCB board.it's very fiddly you will need a sheet of paper and a pen to make a noet of the connecting sequence of the wires ( Mark the blocks of wires with numbers... when replacing everthing this should eliminate any problems) Remove the PCB board from its casing and turn over to expose the back. At the bottom left hand side I discovered two dry joints, I needed a magnifing glass to check all the joints just incase. The faulty joints were a little discoloured blackened slightly. Solution...I cleaned, fluxed and re-soldered the joints. When re-assembled all the parts. It will help when dismantling to keep a note of the number and size of the screws and where they were removed from. My dishwasher is now working again. hope this helps.
Hi, the first thing the dishwasher does is fill with water, so this sounds like a Anti Flood water pump problem this is just behind the water pipe that feeds the clean water into your machine, one thing to check is if the machine is empty of water at the moment, if the machine has water in the bottom then it could be the Drain Pump.
The outlet pump is triggered by the anti flood micro switch via the polystyreene float on the base of the washer. If any water for whatever reason (leaky pipe)is on the floor the machiene automatically switches to pump out mode and only works once the water and the cause is rectified
I followed some of the good instructions already on Fixya. I had checked the heater and it was o.k. I then took the front door of the washer apart to get at the control box. Sure enough, I also had the common design fault. One leg of the rely had scorch marks and was now disconnected from the circuit board. I will solder tonight and test. I include a photo of the burned board. TNoel P
Tarvi...I don't know what the problem is...hard to diagnose these things. If the unit is working correctly, I suggest that you simply cut the power for a few minutes and then restart it. That may clear our a trouble code.
