Having problems with your Zanussi Dishwashers ?

I have a Zanussi dishwasher model DA 6141. For some time now it has not been completely discharging the water at the end of a cycle. But sometime it does completely dicharge.Two days ago it started leaking water from its bottom at the end of a cycle.I tried to locate the leak but was unsucessfuly. All the external plumbing is ok andf there is no leak from the discharge pipe nor water intake pipe. So perhaps its something to do with the water pump?

Hello David,

\015\012Have you removed and cleaned both filters and checked they are inserted correctly? I've uploaded the filter cleaning instructions to Flickr for you:

\015\012The centre (horseshoe) filter simply lifts out then rinse thoroughly under the tap. Make sure the handle is facing the front of the dishwasher when you replace it.
\015\012
\015\012To clean the larger outer filter you need to remove the lower spray-arm (pulls upwards and off), then rotate the filter 90 degrees anti-clockwise and lift it out. Again rinse thoroughly under the tap and scrub thoroughly to make sure the mesh is clear.
\015\012
\015\012Finally, before replacing the filters, check down in the sump where the filters go, remove any debris or build up of waste and give it a clean.
\015\012
\015\012If this doesn't solve the problem, I suspect there may be a blockage in the discharge pipe causing excess pressure when the washer tries to pump out. This may be causing water to leak out from one of the seals associated with the drain pump. Start by disconnecting the discharge pipe from the trap under the sink and make sure the end of the discharge pipe and the inlet into the trap are clear. Remove the sink trap if necessary and clean it. If there is a blockage here, clearing it should solve the problem.
\015\012
\015\012If not follow the discharge pipe back towards the washer and bend it a squeeze it gently to see if you can feel a blockage and loosen any build up of waste. If you find a blockage, flexing the pipe at that location should be enough to free it and it should pump through the next time you run the dishwasher.

Hi my L G dish washer is coming up with E1 . It comes on after about 2 min it takes water into the washer then it hummes for about 30 seconds then comes up with E1 and pumps water back out. I have checked the hoses which don't appear to be leaking -I read somewhere in your answers about this problem that it could be the Water Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes. More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray

EDW5500DSS wont completely drain water Okay so now that my dishwasher runs, when it finishes a cycle it has a nice puddle of water at the bottom that never drains completely out. I am assuming its a relay or something because I looked for a floating switch (did not find), I can hear a pump sound as if it wants to pump the remaining water out, but, it doesn't. I really want to solve this problem soon so I can order the new door seal and needed part together. Checked the line out and of course i

GE GHDA485N 10CS Dishwasher that has standing water in the bottom after the cycle completes. I pulled it out and reconnected power and ran a rinse cycle. I could see that water was pumping out the clear drain pipe but there was still about an inch of standing water in the bottom. Any thoughts as to what part has failed. Does the system use a water level switch or a timed drain cycle to determine when the water has pumped out. If it is a timed cycle could a slow drain cause the problem. Thank you

Bosch SHU3322UC/14 water leak. After running a cycle, dishes are clean and pump evacuates water. After a while clean water starts rising in the washer, eventaully slow leaking at bottom of door. Suspect that the water inlet valve is problem but could this be something else?

Hello, I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher, model FDB750RCC1. It will not fully drain. There is water in the bottom of the unit after the cycle is complete. As it is not full of water or leaking out of the unit when I open the door I am suspecting it is the pump that has broken? (the water must be draining to the overflow point and then stopping as there is nothing pumping it) Any thoughts or ideas for me anyone? Am I on the right track?

Is there a part that can be bought to fix this?

There is now no kink and we have removed all the water we can find. It is now completely empty but the pump continues to run even when the dishwasher is switched off, e.g. the off switch an

Door leak The dishwasher is 2 and half year old and is randomly leaking for at least one year or even more. The leak originally occurred at both lower ends of the door, close to the hinges. The leak was about one liter and the door panel sound insulation soaked with water. After door panel was removed, the leak location was identified at both ends of the lower door gasket. The outside part of the U-shaped gasket was filled with water, and eventually water was spilled on the floor. The leak can g
