This answer was rated:

My dishwasher, a Zanussi model ZDT 5052 refuses to start, with the Intensive indicator permanently on (not flashing). Is there anything I cna do?
JA: Do you know the model of your Zanussi dishwasher? How old is it?
Customer: Model no. is ZDT 5052, Product no.###-##-#### Serial no. 25190098; Type 911N73-7A, and is about 10 years old
JA: How long has this been going on with your Zanussi dishwasher? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Last time it was used (on Tuesday), the salt warning light came on. So I put salt in and am now planning to use it, but it won't start and, as I said, the 70 light is permanently on, not flashing. I have tried to change the programme, but the buttons don't work, two or three times. I have also opened and closed the door several times ...
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: As far as I know, everything else is OK.

Hi Tamar, thanks, I'll wait!
Hope you are doing well today. Have you tried cycling power to the machine?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Well yes, I did the usual on and off routine a couple of times, even before I contacted Just Answers, and again while waiting, and now it is working OK, I hope!
Good deal, yeah sometimes the control board can get confused and get a “kink” in it as I like to say
It just said 70 right, not e70
