Zanussi dishwasher zdf2020 stays on rinse cycle which happens

This answer was rated:

Zanussi dishwasher zdf2020 stays on rinse cycle which happens immediately the machine is turned on and before the detergent drawer opens and would continue on it for a whole day if not turned off

What is it actually doing when you turn it on?
Is it washing all the time or pumping all the time?

If you press and hold the start button for a few seconds will it reset the control board.

Can't do anything now no electricity getting to machine it must have blown something was taking in water and pumping it out I think it was stuck on first rinse before detergent was released it was constantly taking in water and pumping it out and would never stop except now something else is gone as well
Ok have you checked the fuse and power supply to the dishwasher?

If thats ok and its still filling and draining at the same time then its the control board im afraid. Thats the only thing that can cause this fault if thats what its doing.

But if the power supply is fine and theres power to the dishwasher then its possibley the control board at fault. If you are able to remove the outer door panel and then the plastic control panel.
From there you will see the control board, Check the wiring to it and see if theres any signs of burning on there as the wires can burn and cut the power out on the panel.

Check that and see what you find and let me know.
