Question about Zanussi Dishwashers

My dishwasher has been producing so much foam that it leaks out on to the floor. This has not happened before in the fifteen years we have had the machine. The detergent is the same so how do I stop the production of foam?

Foam can only come from the detergent!! usual reason is that somebody has used washing up fluid - you may not have known. to get rid of the foam, put on a wash cycle and sprinkle some salt on the foam

What solution will fix a leak under the door of the dishwasher?


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

It is possible that one of your gaskets need to be replaced inside of your dishwasher. I would recommend having a technician come out and properly diagnose your appliance. Hope this helps. -Matt

For no apparent reason that I can seem to find, the dishwasher periodically has the bottom full of water. It is not that a cycle was interrupted. It happens between uses. It is clean water and does not...


You seem to have a leaking inlet solenoid valve. It could be a bit of dirt stuck across the seats but it could also be the valve seats that have cracked or worn. Check the valve and replace it if necessary. It is the first component after the inlet pipe.

My dishwasher is leaking huge amounts of foam to the floor. This is what happened before I ran the cycle: I had mistakenly poured detergent into the "Rinse Aid" slot in the inner side of the dishwasher...


OK.... The rinse aid dispenser holds enough rinse aid for a lot of washes and dispenses very little each time. So you may nedd to have the dispenser emptied by a technician. If you take the door liner off you can see the back of the dispenser and maybe you can work out how to empty it. Holding the actuator in manually could allow the rinse aid dispenser to run out. Then wipe the tank dry with a towel. Putting high fat milk in the machine while it is rinsing will neutralise the foam. Just one cup will do. Good Luck.....T.

At some point the dishwasher leaks onto the floor. what could be the possible problem?


this are the possibilities for the leak :-----
Door gasket loose/torn
Corner gaskets or door baffle/vent gasket
Door lock/latch loose/broken
Split spray arm
Over filling with water...usually the level is just under the heating element is normal
Something leaking through the door...like the soap or rinse agent dispenser gasket, silverware basket button.
Door hinge(s) bent
Wrong soap was used...dish sink soap instead of dishwasher soap
Rinse aid being used with mechanically softened water ( makes foam or suds inside the dishwasher )

Leaks from under the unit:
Look for whiting or calcium stain on the motor and pump assembly = motor and pump assembly seal leak...access panel removal help
Hose for upper spray arm split
Fill hose split or fill hose spout air inlet is calcium covered
Drain hose is split
Rusted liner...metal liners only
Fill valve leaking or allowing water to fill all the time
Heating element ends....where they come out through the dishwasher liner
Float or float gasket.

Dishwasher doesn't drain fully


Hello. Are you using liquid or powdered soap? In some models liquid soap will foam up and the drain motor can't pump out bubbles. Foaming can also happen if you pre-clean your dishes with liquid soap used for washing by hand. If it is foaming, you can poor non-dairy creamer or cooking oil into the bottom of the unit while it is in the wash cycle.
If foaming isn't a problem then the water level switch may be bad, the pump may be not pumping out as quickly as it should or you may need to take the hose off completely to make double sure that there isn't anything in it.
Did you check the air-gap next to your kitchen sink faucet. If you don't have an air-gap it may be hooked up to the garbage disposal and if you don't have a high loop in your drain hose the water can run back into the dishwasher especially if the disposal backs up.

Whirlpool gold dishwasher


Did you use dishwasher detergent? Liquid soap that you use in the sink for dishes will foam and flood the floor. If it is the machine I need to know if it won't stop filling or if it leaks while the machine is running.

Floor cleaner in jet dry resevoir


If you run the dishwasher it will produce suds coming out the door.You can take the door off and clean it all out. One remedy is to add a gallon of vinegar to react with the soap and prevent foaming, another solution is to add cooking oil.
