I have the same machine and I took mine outside and turned it on its side and removed the clean water feed and all the screws holding the white plastics off and then un-clipped them off and I saw that there was a blue tube that was leaking on mine, I cut the end off and reattached it with a new clip and hey prestow all working now with no leaks.
HI. After me fiddling about with the machine,checkingto make sure water was available to it and trying to locate the float switch (whicu i didnt) .
Then i left it standing overnight aqnd the believe it or not it worked in the morning.
I let it run through the cycles of a program which it did ok.
Hoping it carries on ok. Kenethyorky
If you live in a hard water area the 5 in 1 tablets will only work half way. Consider Calgon powder or the tablets which can be left in the dishwasher cutlery basket as an additional measure. Hard water areas are notorious for leaving chalky residue on cutlery regardless of 3 in 1/5 in 1 tablet promises.
Also your dishwasher will require rinse aid too as most machines need this to mix in with the general water and soap solutions when the dishwasher is on its final rinse.
I had the same problem with my dishwasher. The fault is because the water is not heating but in the majority of cases I would bet that the problem is not with the element but with a burnt out track on the control PCB. I was advised by a zanussi dealer that this track being repaired will not fix the problem indefinately but looking at the PCB the track which burnt out is just the 240V live and switched live from the relay, therefore replacing the track (solder some wire where the track was to the pins of the relay) should fix the problem indefinately.
I have successfully repaired my machine, it has been working for a couple of weeks so far with no problems. A couple of tips:-
1. The relay/tracks in question are beside the two separate connectors at one side of the PCB close to the big 12V relay (it should be obvious as there should be scorch marks)
2. If the two separate connectors above are swapped on reinstallation it will appeaqr that there is no power so before removal of the wiring take a note (or picture) of orientation of the wires.
3. Do not attempt this if you are not comfortable working with mains voltages and ensure that all power to the appliance has been disconnected before dismantling.
4. To ensure a good solder joint clean the area before resoldering with switch cleaner, or just scrape any residue away if no switch cleaner/ IPA is available.
Good luck, let me know if this fixes your problem.
I hant not seen this unit but what it sounds like to me is the control bord that controls the functions on the washer may be bad. you should try and find if there is a tech sheet somewhere in the cabinet or under the dishwasher. that will help you to also see if there may be a fuse or thermal fuse that may be bad. good luck
humming is the motor powered up but not turning. burning smell is the motor overheating. cause may be the motor capacitor which is a cheap part. try replecing it and hope thge motor survived. could also be a foreign object in the pump impellor
