I have a Zanussi ZT 455 dishwasher. When the programme buttons are pressed there is a buzzing noise from the door. Does not start the cycle
Sorry for the delay in getting to your question. Do you still need help on this?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes Please
Ok the buzzing noise you hear behind the door will be the timer unit on this.
If its not starting but just sits there buzzing then its nearly always the timer at fault as its not rotating to start the cycle going as we used to replace a lot of them in the past for this fault.
Now the bad news, The timer is obsolete on this as the dishwasher is actually 20 years old so they went obsolete quite a few years ago as ive wrote a few of them off in the past as we are unable to get the spares for them now.
Sorry its not good news but it looks like the end of the road for this im afraid.
Do you still need anymore help on this as the questions is still open?
If not then if you could rate the answer that would be great.
Many thanks
