Question about Zanussi 18 in. ZDT5052 Slim-Line Built-in Dishwasher
Dishwasher appears to have broken. Went to switch it on and I can't change the washing cycle from the 65 degrees button, al;lother buttons are unresponsive and when I try to see if it will work on the 65 degree button and close door, nothing happens. Does anyone know why this may have happended and why I can't change cycle or get it to work one it is stuck on?

Either it's not getting enough water to flip over to the next part of it's cycle (unlikely) or the water float gauge is not working properly.
When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher --usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring loaded). Lift out the float mechanism and clean around the float tube; many floats must be disconnected from below--to do this you'll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, then replace it in the tube and be sure it moves up and down freely.
If you're experienced with minor repair work shut off the hot water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher's bottom front panel, disassemble the valve to reveal the screen, clean debris from the screen, and reassemble. If the screen doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson (they will probably need to replace the water intake valve).
If none of this helps, call a repair person. Any of several parts, including water inlet valve, pressure switch, and the timer or selector switch, may be faulty.

Replace the timer.
Most likely it was broken by someone resetting the timer by hand while the unit was energized.
Always open the door(de-energizes the timer) when you want to make an adjustment to the machine while it's running.
