Question about Zanussi 18 in. ZSF4123 Slim-Line Free-standing Dishwasher
Hi I have a Zanussi zsf4123 and it's stopped heating the water up and drying after. Apart from that everything seems to be in full working order. I was wondering if this was a problem with the thermostat or heating element or both.
Check with a multi-meter for voltage (220/115v) on heating element's tags. If you can read this voltage on tags - you should replace the heating element In case you can't read voltage on its tags, disconnect one of the wires from its tag (you should unplug first your machine's power cable!) and test for element's resistance - If you can read its resistance, you should replace the thermostat. In case of no resistance - you should replace element and thermostat Good luck!

Tips for a great answer:
These two lights indicate a fault in the heating circuit.
You would require to have access to and be able to use a multimeter to test the heater if the machine isn't actually heating the water.
If it is heating the water then obviously we know the fault isn't with the heater.
Check the heater first.
Take the door apart and check the wiring in the door isn't broken.
If everything checks ok, take the pcb out, look for burned or dry joints around the relays.
I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad...
