Programme cycle stopping on heating point

I have a Zanussi DA 4131 similar to the DA4342. Not all the time but now and again it stops mid cycle on the heating point and stays with the heating element on until you come along and turn it off. For a couple of times it's been on like this for a couple of hours! But then it could work fine the next time? Is the dial sticking or is it something to do with the thermostat?

SOURCE: Dishwasher not drying

I've recently had the same problem. My theory (to be confirmed) is that the heating element is not working properly (in my case not at all). This may be the element itself or the control for the element. This, I think, may account for the machine running for so long - it is waiting for the water to reach operating temp before timing the wash cycle. This also explains why the dishes do not dry. I aim to investigate this theory over the weekend !!

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

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.

Stops mid cycle and clears

It could be the heating element is at fault not heating to the selected temperature 95 degrees 40, 30,and so on, if one of these fail to work then the washer will not continue
also maybe the thermostat may be at fault, causing the same error

WASHING CYCLE STOPS AFTER A MINUTE

Can you skip through the programme to drain? Press pause button. then press start to move the lights down to the empty cycle. leave to finish.

If you have already tried this, I can explain how to put machine into engineer test mode, which will then give out a fault code to identify problem.

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.

Zanussi FLE1416W Front Loader

Most possible reasons that the door switch or timer unit is defective. 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. if you think that a user manual may help you more, it can be downloaded ($8.95) at url: http://www.download-manual.com/shop/Zanussi-FLE1416W-User-Manual-pr-8261.html
