Hi there ....this condition is ususally caused by a water leak into the sump of the dishwasher which activates a safety switch to run the drain pump..preventing the appliance from being used....Remedy...tip the dishwasher back in the head allowing excess water to exit from the sump...then with the door open check that the air vent lock ring is secure, thet the salt unit retaining ring is secure..and finally that the filter unit to base screws are secure...this done re-start and you should b fine

SOURCE: Washer overflows, water keeps running into machine

Hi Dave, this sounds like your water valve is toast. It isn't closing when not energized likely due to mineral deposit preventing the valve plunger from seating. The valve will need to be replaced, they aren't serviceable nowdays, but it should be available at a local brick & mortar part places or any number of on-line vendors. Just provide them with your model number and they should be able to fix you up for under $50 if you can do-it-yourself. Hope this helps move you forward. Let me know if I can assist you further and thanks for visiting "fixya". Good luck macmarkus :)

SOURCE: Hi. I have a

Hi -

The pump running continuously even with the door open means the anti-flood protection system has been activated. This is caused by one of the following:

- Defective or stuck float switch
- Stuck float
- Water leaking into the base of the machine

You're going to need to pull the washer out from under the counter to investigate. It's easiest to start by checking whether any water has leaked into the base. Switch the power off at the breaker/outlet and pull the washer all the way out.Then tilt the washer forward slowly to about 45 degrees with the door closed.

If water appears on the floor at the front of the washer, then water has leaked into the base of the machine. It's a good idea to put some old towels on the floor in front of the washer before doing this to absorb any water that comes out. Also, the washer is heavy and the bottom has a tendency to slide out, so get someone to help you tilt it, if possible.

If there is no sign of a leak, you need to remove the left side panel when facing the door and check the float. You'll need a Torx T20 screwdriver to remove the screws securing the panel - 2 at the front which are only visible with the door open and one at the back near the top of the panel. With the side panel removed, you should see an assembly similar to this one near the front corner:


I've ringed the float switch in red. This is activated by the red shaft running vertically below. You need to make sure the switch clicks on and off when you raise and lower the red lever. If the switch is stuck on it will need to be replaced. Hopefully, it's just stuck and raising and lowering it a few times will resolve the problem

Hope this helps. Please try this, then let me know if you need further assistance. Please also include the full model number - SL84A30 is incomplete and there are several possible models that could be your dishwasher. The full number will be something like SL84A305UC/12 and I will need to know this in the event that any replacement parts are required.

Door wont open on washing machine zwf16581w at the end of the cycle

The door is designed to stay shut at the end of a cycle usually for about 4 minutes, even if you switch the machine off at the mains. Other than that you probably need a repair.

Hi, I have a zanussi wwashing machine model= ghg1200apm. The door won't open. I plugged out the machine after the wash and when i plugged it in again, the door wont open. Can you help me?


The door does not open because there is water inside the machine. To open the door you need to empty the tub first.

To empty the tub disconnect power, open the door at the bottom of the machine's front side, unscrew the drain filter cap and collect water using a container.

Usually that is enough to allow the door to open. If the door does not get released, try running a cycle again.

If still no luck, then the door is locked either because the pressure switch detecting water level is clogged with soap or because the power surge has damaged some component. In that case the machine must be partially disassembled to reach the back of the door opening mechanism. The door latch is reachable either from drain filter access or from top of the appliance.

Emptying water through the drain filter and/or restarting a cycle usually is enough to release the door lock.

Zanussi Washing Machine - ZWF 14070W1 - Door Lock

If there is water still in the drum,try draining it out with the emergency drain hose down by the filter,then take out the filter bung by turning anti-clockwise and pull out to see what has got stuck in the pump.After this is cleared the door should open and the machine should be ready to run again.

Hope this helps.

Zanussi FL884 Washing Machine door lock broken.

More likel that the door latch or handle is broken.
Only way to open door now is to remove the top cover and force the door lock open from inside, you may possibly break the lock by doing this, but there is really no other alternative.

Zanussi zdt6053 will not fill with water, on any programme, it appears to try to start and makes a moise as if pumping, but there is not water to drain, and pump appears to operate if water is poured into...

Check float valve. It is probably stuck. This tells yuor machine to pump the water out and keeps the water valve from opening. Often it is something small that was placed in the dishwasher and lodges under the float telling machine that it is full of water when it is not. The float is somewhere on the bottom inside the machine typically. Make sure it moves freely.
