Whirlpool dishwasher door will not click shut to allow washing cycle to start

Check to be sure the gasket that is between the unit and the door is in its proper palce, it may be knocked out of its normal spot and keeping the door form closing all the way where the latch would engage.

Doesn't close tight enough to start

It sounds like your door-closed sensor (a microswitch) is out-of-adjustment. If you can locate this sensor, try gluing a tiny piece of plastic or wood to it. This will do the same thing as pushing really ******* the door and allow your dishwasher to operate normally.

Newish Zanussi ZDF 511 dishwasher fills the antiflood device

If you cannot find a leak then check that if you are using the 4 or 5 in one tablets that you are not using rinse aid seperately as this is also in the tablets and salt.Too much rinse aid can cause the dish washer to froth up and this can overflow down the underside of the door causing the problem you have.

Hope this helped.

Zanussi DA6142 dishwasher only works when the door is OPEN!

It is unlikely to be very difficult, however the door front panel and control panel will most likely need to be removed. Usually there are several screws across the top inside door edge and down the left and rigtht side of the door towards the hinges. They are often tamperproof torx or hex, sometime philips, so ensure you have the right driver. Also ensure the POWER IS OFF. UNPLUG the power lead and put it next to you- be 100% sure it is unplugged before you do anything. I cannot stress this enough, if the machine is hardwired into the power- LEAVE IT ALONE and call a repairman. The door switch needs adjustment or perhaps a part of the latch mechanism has broken. Sometimes the actual microswitch can become detached (plastic spigots break off) and it gets in a place where the door tongue turns it off when it should be on. Once the front panel is off, you can open and close the door a watch the mechanism to see where the problem is.
But if in any doubt, get a service manual for the machine, study it and diagnose the problem BEFORE delving into the machine.
Be careful, the edges of the door panels are quite sharp and once the panels are off, the main door can spring up due to having less weight on it.

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.

Yes this is a heater fault detection error. The unit may not be heating the water resulting in unsanitary dishes so the unit shuts down in this fault. Also the door may not have completely shut resulting in the heater not working, but everything else does (the heater common line is broken at the door switch. Clear the fault by entering diagnostics with this key dance heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal. All the leds will light, you can then press cancel and try another wash cycle. If fault occurs again, you must repair heater problem.
