Question about Zanussi Dishwashers

1 Answer

Hi I have a Zanussi ZDF501 dishwasher that stopped heating up intermittently. It got worse and I fitted a new heater and all was ok for a few months. Then the intermittent failure started again. Note that I tested the old heater and it is actually OK without a short circuit so I don't think it was the problem adn can be re-used. Could it be the thermostat or heat sensor? I am concerned it might be the PCB since the failure was intermittent. Thanks Dave

In my case, although the solder joints on the relay looked poor, improving them didn't help. I had to replace the relay. Fortunately, Maplin stock a compatible one, JM67X for 1.99. See PCB Mount Low Profile 12V 10A Relay

rather difficult to go further remotely. could be temp sensor. another place to look is at the module - have known quite frequently dry joints at the heater output. examine it carefully

SOURCE: Water not heating

probably not, believe it or not. If they actually designed a trace to fail under load, then they could not predict when it may happen. Yes, things get more load-some over long use and demand more current, but the pcb trace was probably not intentionally too small. Let's say it was designed too small. So at first startup it carries 9.5 Amps. The next factory unit draws 9.8 amps. the next unit, wait a minute, draws 10 amps and blew the trace before it got shipped. I think this under-design was a simple oversight, but one that should have demanded a product recall from Zanussi that would send a tech to every unit to install a pcb with a beefier trace. Email Zanussi and complain! Just curious...can you measure how wide is this pcb trace? It should be about 1/4 inch wide.

SOURCE: Fills with water, sounds like it starts to pump water then stops, then start again

you have a wash pump problem. can be 1 of 3 things. most likely something is caught in the pump impelor if not the wash pump motor may be faulty or ceized or it could be the capacitor for the wash pump motor is faulty. you can try removing the wash pump yourself and check the impelor if it spins freely then you will have a motor problem.
hope this helped

I have a Zanussi ZSF 6160 dishwasher which is not heating the water. I've checked the PCB and visually it appears ok. How do I change the heating element?


measure the heating element resistance it should be around 25 ohm.
otherwise it is the problem.

You can replace the relay, sometimes it stop working with no external damage signs

Zanussi zsf4123 heating problem


Look at the wiring going to the ends of the heater to see if there is an inline thermal fuse that blows when there is trouble in the heater itself. It is about the size of a regular fuse, but may be contained in some kind of covering. It needs to be connected with crimp type connectors, because soldering can ruin the new fuse. Do you have a wiring diagram for this unit? It would help to locate the source of your problem.

ZANUSSI DE6855 DISHWASHER - NO HEAT FOR WASHING OR DRYING


Make sure you unplug before you start. I had the same problem with a DE6850. The heater was ok. Metered at 25.ohms. Apparently, the relay on the control board mounted in the front door behind the switches is a common fault. Remove the screws around the top part of the door and you will be able to get at the control module. Resolder the connection. Zanussi reliability has been lost. Noel P31bf5e2.jpg

Hi there I have a Zanussi zdf121 dishwasher which is only doing a cold wash, not heating at all. Not sure if its hot fill but the hot water is fine elsewhere. Any ideas please Pete


Do you have it hooked up to hot or cold water supply? Most residential dishwashers don't come equipped with a booster heater. If it's connected to the cold side, you'll have to replace the angle stop with a single outlet stop and replace the hot angle stop with a double outlet stop. This should help out, if not, make sure you have hot water in the faucet before starting the dishwasher. Most dishwashers need at least 120 degree hot water supply.

The water wont heat in the dishwasher


Hi, well i think you might have your hands full here! You could be looking at a couple of faults with this. If it wasnt heating then the first p[lace to look is defently the heater and components first! But you should also check that it is filling up to the correct level to or other wise it might not switch the heater on! I know that zanussi have some problems with the sump operated pressure switches which allow the correct amount of water in before it starts to heat, so maybe look at this first. Most of the sumps can be cleaned out easy but some need a replacement sump to be fitted.

Zanussi DW907 Dishwasher stops early in cycle


the heater relay may have gone on the pcb or you may have a stat/wiring fault in the heater circuit.

Zanussi da4342 dishwasher


The dishwasher should heat the water to about 55 C as the heating cycle starts. In these cycle, the dishwasher pauses after has filled with water and wait for the water to reach the temperature. If the water isn't being heated (because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues.
Another possible reason is that the timer unit is defective. If you have observed anything different post a comment.
