Question about Zanussi 18 in. ZDT5052 Slim-Line Built-in Dishwasher
Do you have a garbage disposal? There is a vent in the tube that runs to the sink that can get blocked. There is also a screen or filter in the bottom of the machine that can get clogged. The pump can get jammed with debris as well.
Many dishwasher clogs are caused by food and drain particles siphoning back out of the drain or garbage disposal and into the impellor of the dishwasher drain pump. Remedy this situation the drain hose has to be long enough to loop up to the underside of the countertop then back down again to the drain connection, this should stop the siphoning effect. Also, if you already have the anti-siphoning device installed (usually on sink a chrome cylinderically cap) also called a "air-gap". Remove the cap by pulling off and check that it is not clogged up. If you do not have one and you have extra hole that is capped on your sink you can install one.
Another possible can is that your drainage screening is clogged, if so clean it. Or the drainage screen is missing or not seated properly causing food particles to jamb up the drainage pump impellor. These impellors are plastic and it does take much to stop one.
