My Zanussi ZSF2450S table top dishwasher anti-flood device

This answer was rated:

My Zanussi ZSF2450S table top dishwasher anti-flood device operated. This happened previously two years ago, the technician flushed out pipes within the machine. I am trying to do the same again. I have removed the top/side cover but cannot see where he carried out the flushing. Can you help? By the way, I take great care not to put very dirty dishes into the machine so I am surprised this has happened again. Thank you
JA: Is your Zanussi washer top or front loading?
Customer: front
JA: What have you tried so far with your Zanussi washer?

JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Don't think so
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I have now also removed the base and can see where the outlet hose is attached. Still looks nothing like I remember the guy doing!


Welcome to Justanswer … my name is ***** ***** I will help you today!

I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble with your appliance; I know that can be frustrating.

Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

This indicate water has leaked in the base of appliance and activated anti flood device.

You can unplug it and pull it out, then tip it backwards by around 45 degrees so excess water drains off completely.

Then clean the drain pump and check the waste pipe for any clogs.

Also check, the drain pump for any clogs.

Let me know how it goes.

If the problem appears again, you will have to check what is causing this leak.

You won’t be charged any additional fees.
