Having problems with your Zanussi 18 in. DA4342 Free-standing Dishwasher ?

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


Answers :

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.

My Zanussi DS17 slimline dishwasher is leaking from below the door at the front. The inside seals all seem to be fine, but the catchment moulding below the door (which is revealed at the front when the door is opened) is filling up with water, and then overflowing. I can't see where the water is comming from, but it is definitely the water from the washing cycle as it's hot. Any ideas? I haven't dragged the maching out from the wall yet, but I may have to.

My Bosch Classixx is not filling with water and no sound of the pump trying to work either. I fiddled around with it as it was not cleaning bowls properly on the bottom shelf - plates and cutlery were fine! Think I might have disturbed the round dome thing - is this the "float switch"? There is also about an inch in the bottom of the filter area which I have cleaned out of gunk but still with water there. Any ideas please!

My dishwasher emits a dead animal smell immediately after filling. I have a 20-year-old KitchenAid KUDS220T3 dishwasher. The racks are a little corroded, but it still cleans dishes just fine. About two months ago, it started smelling like a dead animal immediately after the dishwasher fills with hot water, during the time the water is being heated, but before agitation begins. The smell appears to be coming from around the door. If I open the door, everything inside the dishwasher smells fine.


This vent that you are describing is to allow air to flow in for the heat/dry cycle. Some times little creatures want to "mark" their territory by "spraying". Spray some type of cleaner like ammonia into it and **** it out with vacuum a few times. Mo ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

I have the Kitchen aid KUDS01DL dishwasher. It was working fine until last week. When starting a cycle, the washer fills with water. Once filled, the motor makes a humming noise and does not circulate the water. I end up stopping the cycle and the discharge pump empties the water. I took apart and cleaned the basin this morning. I did find some random garbage but it did not seem blocked. Do you have any ideas?

So, it was working fine for 4 years. Then last week it started getting louder after the initial fill cycle. Now, all it does is fill the bottom with water, clicks (where the motor used to kick in), then just hums. Nothing happens, but when I hit the cancel button, it empties the water from the bottom.
