Eureka! thank you FixYa. My Zannusi de6965 was failing to heat up andf finish the programe and showing Al3 read a number of your contributers and after stripping down the front of the DISH WASHER found my way into the main circuit board and there they were 2 two DRY JOINTS ( where the blue and orange wires connect) cleaned and re-soldered then re- assembled and tested.... Eureka! it worked just fine.Remember to take care when disconnecting the internal wiring from the circuit board. I colour marked each connector block and made a drawing. Thanks again hope this helps.

Zanussi zdt 6053 usually will not run full cycle (on any cycle) but stops with constant error beeps. But it is draining ok and sometimes goes full cycle (not often) Any ideas?


Could be anything!
If you suspect that there is a fault then it will be displayed by blinking LED "END OF CYCLE". As the display of failure in hexadecimal code it can flash up to max. 15 times than short pause and after that repeat fault code. You must to count the number of times the LED "END OF CYCLE" flash up.

Example from user manual: Anti-flood device is activated.
- continuous flashing of the indicator light of the running programme
- 3 intermittent audible signals
- 3 flashes of the END OF CYCLE indicator light
(which means "i30" fault code, the cycle is interrupted and the
drain pump switches on).
Possible causes:
Water leakage from the tub - sump and various connections
(pump, upper spray arm duct etc.); floating sensor blocked
mechanically; microswitch faulty; fill solenoid blocked
mechanically; circuit board faulty (solenoid triac short-circuited);
wiring faulty.
26226179-aipk5px1bmfkdpsmrgevaqwn-3-1.jpg Could be also:
To cancel a washing programme in progress:
- Open the dishwasher's door.
- Press the programme selection/cancel button for about 3 seconds,
until the indicator light of the running programme turns off and the
END OF CYCLE indicator light flashes, indicating that the running
programme has been cancelled and that the machine has
returned to setting mode. It is now possible to select another
washing programme. If a new washing programme will be
selected, check that there is detergent in the detergent dispenser.

NOTE: only during the drying phase, if the dishwasher's door will be opened and remains open for more then 30 seconds, the running programme will be automatically cancelled and the machine will return to setting mode. This will happen, always only during the drying phase, also when the machine is switched off by pressing the
On/Off button and remains switched off for more then 30 seconds.

Zanussi ZWF1437W E23


E23 indicates Drain pump faulty; Wiring faulty; PCB faulty.

The service information also says it should stop with the door open.



Unplug the appliance and manually remove the water via the filter or front drain point if it's fitted.

Drain it into a shallow dish, tighten the filter when you need to stop the water (or plug the hose if draining via a hose) while you empty the container.



Once empty, try the door again.

Take the filter out and clean out any debris in it.

Plug the appliance in and put the machine on a drain programe.

Listen/look at the open filter to check that the drain pump is running.

Is my zanussi aquapulse de 4744 dw hot or cold water fed ?


It is more than likely hot water fed. You can trace the line probably to under your kitchen sink and see where the line follows up to your hot/cold on your sink. There would be then another line coming off the hot which would lead to your dishwasher.

Zanussi aqua pulse de 6965


We have AL5 quite requlary. It seems to be related to the pressure of the water going into the machine. I think if it is too high this alarm can be tripped.

There are two main ways we rectify the problem:

1. switch off the inlet water supply. Disconnect the hose at the machine. Let any surplus water drain out (only a couple of spoonfuls). Reconnect and switch on water.

That sometimes resets a sensor inside that relates to the AL5.

2. If the above fails then we remove the panel where the inlet water hose connects to the machine (There are three screws). Then carefully left this panel away from the machine. It will not come right out as it is connected to various bits inside the machine but you can get some access inside. On the left hand side there is a pink pipe with a white stopper on the end. Remove the stopper and let an excess of water out (this might be as much as a cup full). Of course, this must be done with the machine switched off and un-plugged from the mains!! There are electrics inside.

Once the pink pipe is drained, put the stopper back on and reassemble and connect. 90% of the time this works fine.... but the problem does come back.

If it doesn't work after the second procedure has been done then try leaving it over night (with the water inlet switched off) and try again in the morning.

I have experimented with putting the inlet tap half on (i.e. to lessen the flow of water) and that seems to give us longer before the problem returns.

I checked on a site a while back which had suggested that Zanussi were aware of a design problem. Of course, unless cars, they have no recall policy. I have tried to ring them once or twice but have got nowhere. Its hard to tell at times whether you are ringing the right company let alone the right department!!
