Having problems with your Zanussi Dishwashers ?

I have a zanussi tempoline dishwasher, I have loaded this as I usually do, turn the knob to the right and select the 2nd programme the light next to this comes on, I have pressed this to start the machine although it seems as if it is going to start this light flashes and the top arrow on the right of this flashes intermitanly, but the machine does not start the wash programme. The 3hr delay button if I had pressed this by mistake which I am sure I have not would light up. When I found it did no

Hi Ruth.

The machine can be in error mode. In this case one or more lights in the control pad will stay on or flash and the cycle will not start.

One of the most common fault in your situation, and at start of the cycle is no water inlet. In that case you will need to check the water inlet hose at the back of the appliance.
Do not move the appliance yet.

First try disconnecting power by tripping the circuit breaker for few minutes, then re-program the cycle.

If that does not fix the problem, then try telling me the exact model number of the appliance, and describe exactly what lights come on the control panel when cycle does not start.

Alternatively contact Zanussi at the number listed on the user manual. The operator will guide you through a diagnostic, and then will decide if there is need for a technician or not. The machine is still covered with warranty. See:

Hi, I have a KitchenAid Superba diswasher model #KUDSO1FLSS2 that has quit working.

Have a KUDS24SEAL5 superba and no lights come on after pressing any of the buttons. Power to machine is good. Several months ago it would not start properly by pressing 'start'. Would go directly to 'drain' cycle. Then found that if we pressed 'rinse' before 'start' it worked fine. Now, almost a year later...no lights, no one home...any thoughts?

Fisher & Paykel DW60. Fault: Will not start regardless of program selected. E.g. if "heavy duty" pressed, only light will flash, if "normal" is pressed, only this light will flash etc. All hoses (water and drain) have been checked and no crimps or blockages found at either end. All usual methods tried (e.g. cleaning strainers and filters, turning power off for a while etc). Finally, while lights are working, the machine makes no noise at all when a pogram is selected.

Whirlpool - Quit Partner I - DU1048XTP: Start at the beginning - Dishwasher would go through most of it's wash cycle and stop and the 'Start/Resume' LED would start flashing. Would press 'Start/Resume' and wash cycle would start again and run non-stop. Would have to hit 'Cancel/Drain' to stop. Called local service tech and he said board would need to be replaced. First board he brought failed right away, second board was installed. Tech also replaced latch handle assembly because it was missing

I have a Kenmore 665.1373 Ultra Wash dishwasher that will not work. In the past few weeks, it stopped mid-cycle, the the clean light began to flash. Sears sent out a technician who told us that the latch was not catching. He adjusted it, did something with a computer and the dishwasher worked for a couple of days. This time, it would not start a cycle, it would only show heated dry if you pushed the smart wash button and nothing if you press start. It looks like some of the lights are continuous

The hidden control panel has only about half the lights showing what function is pressed. A couple of days ago the washer would not start. The only function which would work was the far left sensor light. After trying to cut power and pushing other buttons, to no avail, we let the machine sit a couple days. It now works again with only half the lights on function pad working. It acts like there was a electrical short.
