Question about Electrolux 24 in. EDW5500DSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
Our dishwasher is not cleaning well. Basically, we have to hand wash our dishes or they will still have food particles on them. The problem has been consistent since we purchased the item a few years ago.
We had Maytag service it but the problem never went away.
We suspect that it may be the "Jump Up Nozzle." We have purchased several of these from Maytag because the nozzles work loose and fall down in the bottom of the dishwasher (then they melt after contacting the heating element).
There are no other indications that the machine is malfunctioning.
Any troubleshooting ideas?

YOU DON'T SAY IF YOU HAVE THE NEWER HOSE OR THE CLASSIC ONE WITH THE STEEL TIP (BETTER DESIGN). IF IT'S THE LATTER UN-SCREW THE SCREW CLOSEST TO THE STEEL TIP,TAKE A SMALL SCREW DRIVER AND LIFT THE THE PIECE OF PLASTIC THAT WAS SCREWED DOWN JUST ENOUGH TO SLIP THE HOSE OUT.
WHAT YOU'LL BE FACED WITH IS SOMETHING I WOULDN'T SUGGEST CUTTING.
IT MAY BE MORE PRACTICAL BUYING A NEW HOSE. AN ELECTROLUX WILL LAST FOREVER,BUT YOU DO HAVE TO REPLACE THINGS LIKE THE COMBO DUST/UPHULSTRY ATTACHMENT. THE HOSE IS PROBABLY THE FIRST THING YOU WOULD NEED TO REPLACE BECAUSE OF AIR LEAKS. I'VE HAD MY OLYMPIA ONE FOR 27 YEARS AND HAD TO REPLACE THE HOSE ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO. YOUR CHOICE.

FIRST OFF EACH OF YOU HAS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT MACHINE. ESPECIALLY THE OXYGEN WHICH IS MADE BY THE "NEW" ELECTROLUX. THE OTHER TWO ARE MADE BY THE "OLD" ELECTROLUX WHICH IN NOW CALLED AERUS. THE ADVICE WITH THE GUARDIAN TO GET IT SERVICED BY THE DEALER SINCE THE POWER NOZZLE IS PROBABLY STILL UNDER WARRANTY IS A GOOD IDEA. (THE 25 YR. WARRANTY DOESN'T APPLY TO THE WHOLE MACHINE SO YOU HAVE TO READ CAREFULLY WHATS COVERED. THE MAIN MOTOR DEFINITELY IS.)
ASIDE FROM ALL THAT
DID ANY OF YOU HIT THE RESET BUTTON ON TOP OF THE POWER HEAD?!

I just moved into a new house and builder had provided a dish washer drain just below my kitchen drain line.
DIsh washer install was done by me, every thing worked out OK except dish washer would not drain after a wash cycle.
Cause: drain provided by builder was blocked and needed a circular small cut before mounting drain hose over it.

The deal with the Renny is that it runs off of circuit boards. Usually the problem of the main motor shutting on and off is caused by one of the Triac boards located inside the canister. Another problem could be the thermostat wire located on the inside of your motor itself. It's almost never the thermostat, so the triac board is most likely the issue.
As far as your power nozzle goes, the head eminating from the swivel body is in most cases due to an older design of the power nozzle. I would suggest investing in a new elbow assembly that includes a new swivel body as well as newer style of wiring that is proved to reduce arcing and heat production within the power nozzle.
In some cases, fixing the power nozzle will fix the problems you are experienceing with the main motor as the arcing happening in the power nozzle can in fact turn off your machine. So investing in a new elbow assembly for your power nozzle could in fact solve the problem in its entirety.

If you're looking for a new head for your vacuum. Then you're going to have to replace it with the same type of nozzle.
However, wall inlets are standard so you can purchase any kind of attachment kit and it'll fit your inlets and work with your system. Their are many online retailers that offer a wide range of kits that will fit your system.
