Re: zanussi zdt 6252

I had the same problem with Zanussi ZDT 6252. To fix it, turn power on, close door fully, then open door, turn off then turn back on again. If you follow this sequence the machine is reset and you can select programs again.

What does error code 155 mean

This is not error code. If a fault occurs on your device it will be displayed in hexadecimal code for example:
Newer models: i10, i20, i30 ....... i90, iA0,.............iF0
Older models: A0, A1 ........ A9, AA, Ab,............. Af
or C0, C1 ........ C9, CA, Cb,........... Cf
Because that I believe that the digit number "155" that you see on the display means the duration time (minutes) of selected program. Also see in user manual how to cancel selected program and choose new one.

Light panel fully lit stopping program selection and start does a electronic part need replacing

I would suspect the user interface panel.

Most dishwashers can be tested thusly:

Turn off power to the dishwasher at the circuit breaker box. Take apart the Dishwasher door and unhook the cable from the User Interface panel to the main control board. Then, turn the power back on and close the dishwasher door so it latches. The drain pump should go on. If it doesn't the main board is bad. If it does, it's the user interface panel.

It could be you opened the door before it had fully completed a program, and then turned it off. My Hotpoint machine has to be reset in these circumstances otherwise the next time it is turned on, it appears to let you select a different program but when you close the door resumes the program it was running when it was interrupted.

You don't say which model you have, so I cant give you a definitive answer, but you could try the following sequence which works on my Hotpoint:

1. Open door and switch machine on.2. Press and hold down the P button for several seconds until it gives a series of beeps (mine = 3 beeps).3. Release P button.4. Select the program you want in the usual way using the P button.5. Close door, and the machine should then run the selected program.
Hope this helps.

Dishwasher not working. Lights come on to allow you to select cycle, but on closing door, nothing happens. Is this likely to be a major, expensive fault

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor .

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water .

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

You could always scan it in as a pdf then convert that to a word then select all text and use a translator program to give you the english version. Or you can contact Brandt and see if they have a English file they could email you.

Miele Turbothermic G579SC Dishwasher Intermittent Problem Dishwasher works fine on approximately 30 per cent of times it is used. This percentage seems to be about the same whatever program is selected...


Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these. Hope this helps...
