ZDT5052 flashes quickwash light

Hi, My Zanussi ZDT5052 stops after draining water and last program(50-degree quick wash) light starts to flash quickly. It happens sometimes with first water drain, sometimes after last drain. Some cycles are washed normally, but then again, for an example after draining water with washing powder it stops and starts flashing this light. Filters are checked. Same with hoses. No lime. What it could be? Manual doesn't say anything about last light flashing.

Thank You!

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.

Why my AEG F55080vi stops after drain cycle (program beginning) and then it stops and I hear 2 beeps and 2 flash continuously?

Definitely, water drain time-out. Error code i20.
The pressure switch doesn't return to EMPTY (1-2) after two drain phases lasting 120 seconds.
Possible causes:
Drain circuit obstructed/blocked; drain pump
interrupted or jammed (foreign bodies); level
pressure switch blocked on FULL (1-3); hydraulic
circuit of pressure switch obstructed; wiring faulty;
circuit board faulty.

Thanks to your detailed description of failure I conclude that in drain phase (after starts drain pump) leaks water and causing a short circuit. I would thoroughly reviewed drain hydraulic circuit. If is alarm displayed and there is no water inside dishwasher then check heater and anti-interference suppressor.

The issue can either be with the unit not draining properly or the timer/electronic board itself has gone bad & should be replaced. First clean the drain hose and the drain pump for any clogs, you can do this by taking off the bottom access panel. After cleaning if still the issue is not resolved then the timer/control board has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

If the model is correct then even without a manual the control set up is as follows.
From Lhs you will see on/off/ button next are the 2 lights top one is on/off and the bottom is for salt low light.The next button to the right is rinse and hold next Intensive 70 Degrees,next Normal 65,next Bio 50, next Quick wash 50 Degrees.To cancel a wash programme open the door and press the button for the prog. underway for more than 1 second until the corresponding light goes out.
The dishwasher is now reset and you can select a new programme.You can try this site for a manual.

Hope this helps.

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.

I have a Zanussi DX6453 dishwasher. Water will

Try tipping the dishwasher back to see if any water drains out from below if there is water present then the anti-flood device is energised and stopping water coming into the unit.If it works now after resetting then there is a leak under the machine that needs investigating.You can try going into the diagnostics to read the alarms.If you hold in the first and third button from the left on programmer,whilst holding in then press the on/off button then when the lights start racing release these 2 buttons.You should now be in the diagnostics,now press the first button once and count the flashes of the end of cycle LED.If this button is pressed 2 more times it will give the previous alarms.1 flash could indicate fault on inlet water and valve.2 flashes drain circuit blocked.3 flashes anti-flood device.8 flashes faulty circuit board.Make sure after reading alarms to switch off unit then on then off to reset.Then go back into the diagnostics as before to reset alarms but this time press button 2 from left all LEDS will flash after exit as before.

Hope this helps.
