My machine seems to be stuck on a drain cycle


Sounds like your 'anti flood' system is activated. This happens when a leak fills the drip tray on the base of the machine, and a anti flood float switch senses water in the tray. Leaks can come from several sources - loose pipes, leaking door gaskets - even opening the door while the machine is hot! i.e. to add an extra item after the machine has started, for example. ISOLATE THE POWER and examine the base tray, if its a free standing machine tip the machine back at an angle (The Hemlich manoeuvre for Dishwashers lol) and the water will flood out - if built in, remove the lower front panel. Once the water is removed, the machine should start - but if the problem occurs, the leak is still there. Zanussi machines are tricky - you'll probably need an engineer to sort it out - expect not much change out of £100. Cheers!

Step 1:
Remove the service panel that runs along the front of the dishwasher just below the door. If it is screwed in place, remove the screws with a screwdriver. If the panel hangs on hooks, pull the panel out and swing it up to remove it from the hooks.
Step 2:
Check the end of the drain hose that connects to the dishwasher. If it's leaking, tighten the clamp with a screwdriver.
Step 3:
Check the drain hose connection to the kitchen sink drain. Again, if it's leaking, tighten the clamp with a screwdriver.
Step 4:
221_a1.jpg Check for leaks around the water-inlet valve. If necessary, use an adjustable wrench to tighten the compression fitting that connects the water-supply line to the valve. If the fill hose is leaking, replace the spring clamp that is on the hose with a worm-drive hose clamp. It produces more clamping pressure. Use adjustable pliers to compress the spring clamp so you can pull the clamp and hose off the valve. Remove the spring clamp from the hose. Buy a worm-drive clamp at your hardware store, then install it and tighten it with a screwdriver.

Leveling the machine Step 1:
Remove the front access panel (see step 1, "Tightening the fittings"). This will give you access to the dishwasher's adjustable feet.
Step 2:
Open the door completely and remove the bottom dish rack.
Step 3:
Unscrew the dishwasher from the kitchen countertop so the dishwasher can move freely as you adjust the feet.
Step 4:
Check to see if the dishwasher is level side to side. Place a small level inside the dishwasher so it's sitting on the bottom pan and facing parallel to the front lip of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher is not level, use adjustable pliers to turn one of the dishwasher's front feet up or down until you hit level.
Step 5:
Check to see if the dishwasher is level front to back. Turn the level perpendicular to the door, and place it on one of the bottom ledges that run along the side of the cabinet. Check the level again. If the dishwasher isn't level, use your adjustable pliers to turn the back feet up or down until you hit level.
Step 6:
Reattach the dishwasher to the countertop and reinstall the front access panel.

Fixing a leaking door Step 1:
Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely.
Step 2:
If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary.
Step 3:
Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet.
Step 4:
Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement.
Step 5:
Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.

Hello.


Is there a puddle in front of your dishwasher? Often this is a relatively easy problem to solve. At best, all you need to do is tighten a few fittings or level the dishwasher so water doesn't slosh out when the machine is running. At worst, you may need to replace a door gasket.

  • If your dishwasher has an air gap, which prevents dirty water from re-entering the machine, clean it regularly. Otherwise, it could overflow and leak.
  • Always use detergent that's made for your dishwasher. Dishwashing liquids and other soaps can create excessive suds that will leak from the machine.
  • Occasionally, the main seal between the dishwasher cabinet and the pump fails. If your dishwasher leaks at this spot, have a professional replace the seal.

Dishwasher is leaking out of the front right bottom corner. It spurts out while it is running. I took the front panel off and could see that where it is coming from but dont know why it is all of a sudden...


most of the time when it leaks from the front door it is going to be from a corner. most every time the front door gasket is replaced to solve the problem. I have found that the gasket on my dishwasher last about 2 years before needing replaced. I clean the white hard scale that builds up on gasket frequently

I have a Zanussi Fitted dishwasher and I notice that the board under my kitchen seems to be getting black,I think it is the dishwasher leaking water from underneath.. Is there any common problems with this...


Yes sounds like some kind of water leak. Take of the front plinth and check underneath the units and DW. I presume you DW is adjacent to the sink so please cheak all pipes including waste asap. Also opening the DW door whilst it is running can splash water, over a period of time this could effect wood material and cause your problem.
