I found this post on another website. Hope it helps:

"Six torx screws securing the fine mesh filter just below the lower spray arm. Make sure they're all tight. Bit size is T 20 also, check for damage to the mesh screen. What happens when those screws are loose is water pressure seeps under and creates a tidal wave sort of effect by spraying water forward instead of thru spray arm...long shot, but I've seen it 50 times."

Unbelieveable!!
I have the same problem, tried your solution (torx screws) As simple as that, I was ready to get rid of the dishwasher, thinking it was the door that couldn't be fixed.
Thanks a bunch, if it weren't for the internet & your blog, I would be further in debt, with the purchase of a new dishwasher!
Thanks a bunch!!!!!!!!

How do I get error code f2e2 off my dishwasher?


"F2 - A water leak, which if detected will stop water from entering the dishwasher via the inlet valve. You will probably experience the dishwasher not filling properly during a cycle. Possibly caused by a faulty water level indicator, you can also try cleaning the filters and drain if you notice a lot of standing water remaining in the dishwasher basin."

"Look in the bottom of the unit. Something has it stuck, like food."

sorry if this doens't solve your problem. This is what turned up with your keywords in a quick search engine query.

Should the water level be above heating element


The full water level will be 1/4 to 1/8 inch below the heating element. The water fills on a timed basis so the exact level depends on incoming water pressure.

I'm just wondering how much water should be in the dishwasher for proper cleaning? Should it cover the heating element?


Water level can depend on the model and manufacturer. The water will fill to the level of the float switch. This is a plastic looking thing near the front of the dishwasher along the tub bottom that looks like and upside down cup. The water level reaches a point to where the float lifts and activates a cut-off switch which will stop the water from filling, followed by the wash cycle beginning. Now, depending on where the heating element is located, the water level is usually just touching the element and not necessarilty covering it. Does this help you? If you still have questions, let me know.

Leaking from the bottom a lot, immediately when I start the cycle


Problem was that a rat or mouse chewed through the hose. I had seen small pieces of red plastic on the floor in the water. That was a clue that the plastic part of the hose had been chewed up.

Zanussi ZDT6252 stops 1min into cycle


You need to reset the computer on the bottom. Had the same problem with mine. The Blinking led means the heating element is bad and will not operate.

Dshwasher has water on the bottom after cycle


Hi
Check the bottom of the machine and where water goes,there might be some scrap food,or other item that is not allowing the water to go in the time when the valve is open.This leaves some water and increases in other cycles,causing flooding on the floor.Also check for bend in the pipes at the back.
Hope this helps
