Why does it stop running after two mins and has an error code of OE?


The OE or Overflow Error code.
The water inlet valve is an electrically-controlled valve that opens to allow water to enter the dishwasher. Depending on the model, the valve stays open either for a set length of time or until the dishwasher has enough water. However, if the water inlet valve doesn't shut off after the dishwasher has enough water, the dishwasher will overflow. If water drips into the dishwasher when the door is open, or if water collects at the bottom of the dishwasher while it is not use, you may need to replace the water inlet valve.

Zanussi dishwasher anti flood device


There is a water level pressure switch that is your issue. Replace that or if youre lucky, clean the hose/pipe connected to the pressure switch and it could work again.

I have a lg dishwasher and it ran for an hour and a half and then displayed E1 on it. Then, it would not stop running and wouldnt even turn off so i had to turn it off by the breaker. any solutions?

(2) The float switch actuates in order to prevent the dishwasher from overflowing. If the float switch is defective or stuck, it might not stop the dishwasher from overflowing. If the float switch is defective, replace it.
One would need the model number of your machine.

Washes but water does not heat up and dishes cold


The dishwasher does not heat up the water. The water should be hot coming into the dishwasher, check your hot water supply source, whether it be the hot water tank or be sure the water inlet for the dishwasher is not connected to the cold water line

DA6141....DOES IT HEAT THE WATER? CAN ONLY SEE A HOT WATER INLET PIPE TO THE REAR....


Your dishwasher uses your hot water to wash the dishes.
Attach your hot water to both the sink and dishwasher at that (hot water) inlet.
Run the hot water in your sink until it is very hot, then turn on your dishwasher.

Will not fill with water


Hi


When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages.
If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Dishwasher power there but wont fill up with water makes a slight buzz sound any ideas please ?? It's a Zanussi zdt6252 by the way..


The slight buzz is coming from the water inlet valve solinoid. It's OK.

But check whether water is getting into the inlet tube of the washer. Check the filter at the rear of the dish washer body wher the inlet tube from your water tap is connected.

Not cleaning fully - tablets left in bottom of unit - some of runners on bottom tray missing


Hi there,

Well first of all you can check the Water-inlet valve
Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need replace it.
After then you can check the Drain valve,  that should open only during draining. If debris lodges in the valve, it can't close properly, so water drains out during the wash cycle. Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposer. If yours does that, listen for water flowing into the disposer during the wash cycle. If you can hear it then, the drain valve may be clogged.
Please post comments if you need more help or information..............

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Zanussi ZDT6252 fills with water when not in use


Sounds like you have a leaking inlet valve. The best option is to replace it with a new one. It does have overfill protection on it but this may not work if its leaking.

Zanussi dishwasher DA 6141 6 years old


Check first the filters on the inlet water line (both sides). Then, if problem still exist - check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one. Good luck
