Zanussi ZDF14001WA Freestanding Dishwasher, White

Product information

The Zanussi ZDF14001WA is a great value dishwasher, with 12-place settings and a choice of 5 programmes. At the touch of a button, Zanussi's unique Auto programme selects the optimum temperature, duration and water use for your load. It covers the biggest range of temperatures from 45°C to 70°C, great for everything from your wine glasses to your dirty dishes. An eco and intensive programme are on hand for when you require an eco-friendly or heavy-duty wash. This dishwasher also has an extra-efficient program that gets your dishes done quickly at 65°C, with perfect results.

It’s also triple A-rated for energy efficiency, cleaning and drying performance. The 30-minute Quick Wash is ideal if you’re entertaining, as it’s easy to load and load again with plates, pots and pans. There are also indicators to tell you if you need to top up with rinse aid or salt, a 24 hour delay timer and adjustable plate racks.

Zanussi’s Active Drying system encourages the circulation of air through a condensing unit between the roof of the tub and the top of the machine. The steam condenses naturally and is eliminated by evaporation, all within the dishwasher and not into your kitchen. The Aquastop system protects against flooding for extra peace of mind.

Q & As

Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst electrical good ever purchased The machine is dreadful to load and does not clean properly. You need to leave large gaps between plates and bowls. Any mugs larger than a standard size are a nightmare to load. Had the repair people out within a minute month can't wait for it to die so I can get something that works properly. 12 November 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 Slow and poor. Dishwash then hand wash - hardly labour saving We purchased this appliance in April; delivered late April / early May. Door misalignment - poor QC? Quite frankly we are very disappointed. On almost every wash the pots and cutlery have particles of debris on them after washing. The dishes frequently need hand washing afterwards - hardly the point of a dishwasher! The dishwasher this replaced never gave this problem. We have followed instructions for cleaning filters etc., but it makes no difference. I am sure that there is a fault, be it technical or design. This appliance is clearly not fit for purpose. Very unhappy and would return if possible. 04 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Wife is now happy Very happy with this purchase, washes and dry's superbly, Had Zannusi products for past 30 plus years and never been let down. As usual , great service and price from John Lewis. Thank you Mr T Westworth 23 June 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed Decided on another Zanussi, having years of good service from our previous machine. first time set a programme and machine started instantly without pressing switch on, second time would not switch on. Instructiion either incorrect or not stated; in that the on button needs to be held for several seconds, engineer visited and new part fitted I believe. Cold water filler hose would not maintain permanent leak free joint as plastic nut "relaxed" with time. cured by locally purchased replacement Over Xmas period went to load machime and found standing water inside, assumed failure to pump out fully. Bailed out water by hand and checked filters and sump. Following morning found full of water again, which had obviously overflowed and got under vinyl floor. Turned off water supply obviously. Service engineer not available for a week apparently; Would not buy this type of product online again, and would have preferred a replacement of a different make 30 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed. Went OK for first 2 months but has stopped working now and I have to wait 12 days before an engineer can come out to repair. None of my very ordinary wine glasses fit in the glasses rack. 27 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by No longer chained to the sink Very pleased with this dishwasher easy to load and use would recommend 03 June 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Zanussi ZDF14001WA I returned the 1st one that arrived because I noticed that the door was misaligned to the right and was touching the lower panel. There seemed to be 2 screws missing inside the door but this appears to be a design 'feature' as the replacement also had these screws missing. The door on the 2nd machine was also misaligned in a similar way but I decided to keep it and it has worked reasonably well for some weeks now. Several rubber buffers have come off the racks in use and were found loose inside the machine. The dishes come out a bit on the wet side but are clean enough. There doesn't seem to be a way of loading pint glasses. They tend to fall over during the wash cycle. Then last night we couldn't open the door. It had become so misaligned that it was fouling the panel on the right hand side and had scraped off some of the paint. Tomorrow I am going to get in touch with John Lewis and ask for a different machine. Sadly I have now lost all confidence in Zanussi products. I think this model should be withdrawn from sale. 18 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A good job I like Zanussi kitchen equipment, so when my previous dishwasher finally gave up the ghost, bought another. It does a lovely job of cleaning even the most stubborn stains and switches itself off completely when finished. It looks smart and I'm really pleased with it. I would recommend it to anyone. 08 April 2014
