Check to see if the heat element in the bottom inside is all crusty or cracked, if so replace, if not, unplug unit from house current, pull bottom toe panel off, you should see where heat element comes thru cabinet and has two wires attached, remove wires, take ohm meter and check for reading, if reading is ok then you either have bad control timer circuit (main board) or blown thermal fuse. Call tech to check further if you do not have original tech sheet or electrical background. My bet is that you have a bad heat element.

different model same problem.......took front panel off, all you need is a philips head screwdriver for that part. There were 3 wires damaged and one cut completely in two. Spliced wires back together, applied some shrink tubing and electrical tape to seal it up good. Everything is working fine for now. Took 20 mins and $3 in materials. Dont call a service man, you CAN fix this yourself. Don't forget to unplug it first ;)

Run the dishwasher through a test mode


Test Mode


Make sure the appliance is empty of water before running Diagnostics as it does not pump out before starting to fill and therefore you could overfill the appliance.
Open the door and set the program to the first program. (Normally rinse).
Turn the power off.
Press and hold the start button and while holding turn the power on.
After a little while the start button will flash, release the button.
Press the start button once and close the dishwasher door.
The machine will now run through a diagnostic routine.
Should take about 20 mins.
The machine will stop during diagnostics if an error is found and will display the error code. If no error is found it will complete the diagnostics and end the programme.

To exit diagnostics at any time just press and hold the start button till the programme is cancelled
Error codes


F1. Single flash. NTC Break. NTC open circuit/short circuit or ambient temperature less than 3 Celcius

F2. 2 Flashes. Water leakage. Floater switch LS6 in drip tray has switched.

F3. 3 Flashes. Heating system defect. Heater or relay on control board defect. Chack also cabling.

F4. 4 Flashes. Draining failure. Drain pump, control board OWI or water indicator defect.

F5. 5 Flashes. Sprayarm Blocked (not present on VBL version. On 1 digit display will show as F and flashing start led).

F6. 6 Flashes. Water valve (WV1) is switched on but flow meter (FM) senses no impulses (less than 10 impulses in 10 secs) and the water indicator (WI) is at a low level
Water Valve Closed. Water inlet hose blocked.
Water inlet valve (WV1) defective. Flow meter (FM) defective (leads to FM failure)

F7. 7 Flashes. Flow meter failure. Flow meter defect. Water inlet valve defect or water inlet hose blocked.

We have a zanussi dishwasher and it runs bu no water is commiing through


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor .

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water .

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Hello,
Try tipping the dishwasher back to see if any water drains out from below if there is water present then the anti-flood device is energised and stopping water coming into the unit.If it works now after resetting then there is a leak under the machine that needs investigating.You can try going into the diagnostics to read the alarms.If you hold in the first and third button from the left on programmer,whilst holding in then press the on/off button then when the lights start racing release these 2 buttons.You should now be in the diagnostics,now press the first button once and count the flashes of the end of cycle LED.If this button is pressed 2 more times it will give the previous alarms.1 flash could indicate fault on inlet water and valve.2 flashes drain circuit blocked.3 flashes anti-flood device.8 flashes faulty circuit board.Make sure after reading alarms to switch off unit then on then off to reset.Then go back into the diagnostics as before to reset alarms but this time press button 2 from left all LEDS will flash after exit as before.

Hope this helps.

Kenmore ultra wash does not spray


Hi.

It is possible that the pump hose , or the impeller in the pump assembly is clogged or faulty, then then the machine fills, water does not recirculate, and then the machine stops without spraying because of the pump malfunction.
Access the pump hose and check it. The next step will be disassemblying the pump completely
If there is no blockage, test and eventually replace the pump.
A first test on the pump is done by energizing it directly.

If the pump is spraying with regular pressure, then check the arms attachment, if there is a big leak in there , then the machine will not spray.

If water is getting inside the machine, then the inlet valve is opening. However if the machine is underfilling, then there will be poor recirculation and the arms may not spray.
Test the water level switch. If this is a float switch, the switch can be tested jumping its contact and operating the machine with door switch tripped to prevent overfilling. This test must be done by a trained person.

Also ensure that the problem is not the timer not advancing to the spraying part of the cycle. In that case the problem is not the timer itself, but the machine is not meeting a condition needed for cycle advancement. Usually the problem is temperature related, look also for long filling.

Washer fails to start. Power o.k. and water supply on. Filters cleaned. When set to start makes regular sound as if trying to start cycle. Any advice please?


Hi.


Check if the water is flowing inside machine or not.


If the tub is not filling, test the water level device (usually a float switch located on a side inside the tub).

Ensure that the switch is not stuck, and test the switch using a multimeter to ensure it is closing and opening. Disconnect power before testing the switch.


If water level is OK, then test the water valve.

The inlet valve is tested reading impedance on valve solenoid contacts. Disconnect power and remove the valve first.

If the valve solenoid is showing no continuity, then the valve must be replaced.

A dual valve sometimes can also be tested swapping hot and cold inlet contacts.


All test and repairing must be done by a professional.


To get a quote on repair, check warranty status or get parts, call Zanussi at the number listed on the owners manual.

Not take in water


Hi!


Thanks for using FixYa. Disconnect the power source to your dishwasher before you conduct this or any other test. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel. Locate your dishwasher's water inlet valve. It should be located behind the lower kickplate panel in either the right or left corner. There will likely be two screws either on the top of the panel, or on its bottom. Remove these two screws, and then remove the kickplate. On some dishwasher models, the door has to be opened in order to gain access to, and remove the kickplate’s screws. Close the door before you remove the kickplate panel.


You will be able to identify the water inlet valve by the hoses that connect to it. There will be one hose feeding water from the house to the water valve, and another hose leading from the water valve that carries water away. Now is a good time to inspect your dishwasher's hoses, to make sure they aren't responsible for any water flow problems. Make sure the hoses are securely connected to the valve. Also check to make sure there are not kinks in the hoses. Kinks can impede the flow of water.


There will be two wires connected to the water inlet valve. If your dishwasher's water inlet valve has two solenoids, then there will be four wires. Label the wires so that you will be able to correctly reconnect them later. The wires are connected using slip-on connectors. Grasp the connectors and pull on them firmly in order to disconnect the wires from the valve's terminals. Do not pull on the wires themselves. You may want to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to help you.


Use your multi tester to test the valve for continuity. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Touch each of the meter's probes to a terminal. If you receive a reading of infinity, it means the valve's solenoid is faulty and the valve needs to be replaced. If your valve has two solenoids (four terminals), test the second pair of terminals in the same manner. If either pair of terminals receives a result of infinity, replace the water inlet valve.


You do not have to remove the water inlet valve from the dishwasher in order to test it. Just make sure power is not getting to your dishwasher before you conduct the test.


Interestingly enough, it is entirely possible for your water inlet valve to pass the continuity test and still need replacing. This is because sometimes the valve itself is faulty, but its solenoids are not. For instance, a leaky valve may pass the continuity test, but because it is leaking, it should be replaced anyway. The same applies to valves that are filled with debris. The debris may be what is causing the valve to not function properly. If you are unable to clean out a debris-filled water inlet valve, you will have to replace it.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Rylee

Zanussi ZWD 1270W Fault Code 10


Washer dryers often have cold water valves with 3 separate solenoids. One for the main wash and rinses (which is clearly ok) and one for the condition rinse (to take the fabric conditioner down) which is probably ok too, and the 3rd one is for the dryer. It's possible this 3rd solenoid has failed.

Washer dryers need on a steady trickle of cold water running into the condenser chamber to convert the steam into water, which then gets pumped down the drain.

e10 means that there is a problem with the water supply.
a condenser dryer needs cold water to operate properly. the e10 code will appear if:
1. the water is turned off
2.the water pressure is too low.
3.the solenoid valve is open circuit
4.there is a problem with the pressure switch (least likely)

Cold valve is at the end of blue inlet pipe remove lid and you will see it.

f E10 is only appearing when trying to dry, the problem almost certainly is the condenser valve solenoid open circuit. The green solenoid on the inlet valve. Should read about 4000 ohms.

My money would be on the solenoid coil being open circuit. The coil can be canabalised from most valves although you may have to modify the connections. For simpler repairs - contact Zanussi and get the entire triple inlet water valve to swap out.

Zanussi dishwasher DA 6141 6 years old


Check first the filters on the inlet water line (both sides). Then, if problem still exist - check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one. Good luck
