Zanussi ZDT6252 stops 1min into cycle

I have had a leak with dishwasher and when locating leak had dishwasher in bits and had to stop/start dishwasher to prevent water spilling everywhere. Fixed leak put dishwasher back together but after about 1 minute of cycle dishwasher halts and after about 5 more minutes rinse/hold LED starts to flash.

Cleaned filters, took side panel off and started a cycle. The following happens:
1. Drains water
2. Starts to fill water, level gets 2/3rds to top of plastic tank on side, whilst cleaning nozzles rotate,
3. Whirring sound from cleaning nozzles stops
4.Water level viewed on tank drops
5. Dishwasher stops
6. Rinse Hold LED starts to flash after about 5 minutes
7. Dishwasher sits like this with water in bottom of cleaning compartment.

I wondered whether in stop starting the thing I confused it's programme.
Is this possible?
Is there a reset?
Is it anything else?

You need to reset the computer on the bottom. Had the same problem with mine. The Blinking led means the heating element is bad and will not operate.

Possible that the main controller board is not working and so the drain was interupted or stopped thus resulting in the water remaining within the drum.
You will need to trace the main power to the control board and see if there was a break in the wire or a possible failure of the controller unit. If there is no output when plugged and start is initiated then the controller is a suspect.
Take estimate and decide.

Dishwasher wont fill with water

Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

Zanussi ZDT6252 fills with water when not in use

Sounds like you have a leaking inlet valve. The best option is to replace it with a new one. It does have overfill protection on it but this may not work if its leaking.

Zanussi zdt6252 stops on 'Rinse & Hold' midway thru Wash Cycle consistently...

The problem here is being caused by Blocked Filters in the Water suppoly In line/pipe. There are two(2) filters in this line, at the water connection point and at the Washer connect point(one at each end). If these filters become blocked, then the result will be a restricted water In-Flow and hence the Rinse & Hold Status. Disconnect the Water-Supply pipe and remove the plastic filters giving them a thorough cleaning before replacing them. All will be rectified by this action. Peter...
