    I think you may be right. I ran a full cycle again yesterday and the water was cold all the way through. Do you know if it would be worth getting this fixed or purchasing a new one?

Sounds like a heater problem to me, does it go through the complete cycle on its own?

    Zanussi Dishwashers are quite good, it also maybe a thermostat problem, either way it should cost no more than 70 gbp for a local engineer to repair it.

I have a Zanussi DE6850 free-standing dishwasher. Have just put on a 65 degree programme. After approximately 1 minute the machine has stopped functioning and the top two lights are flashing and water...

You seem to have a blockage,have you checked the filters lately.Also check the drain hose and the pipe that the drain hose goes into,if they are clear then the blockage is down in the bottom of the dishwasher in the pipes or the drain pump.

Hope this helps.

Electrolux de 6850 dishwasher

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 P8017c86.jpg

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

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.
