Hello lozjojo,
Based on your problem description, you either have no water pressure at the inlet valve or the inlet valve isn't operating and allowing water in. Prior to installation, did you make sure you removed ALL the packing material from everything? Is there any way tha you can check your supply lines for water? Also, some of the new flex water supply lines have built in anti leak 'shuttle valvles' inside them to prevent flooding if the line bursts.. Unfortunately, I don't know how you tied in the supply lines to the dishwasher itself.. If you used the anti-flood type supply lines.. that is another consideration to investogate.. If nothing I suggested resolves your problem.. please elaborate on the method you used to supply water to the system.. Good luck .. and hope I helped you...
Regards

Electrolux dishwasher not completing wash cycle and all lights flashing on door control panel and the 'wash pump' error light behind the lower kick space panel was flashing.


Good Morning friend, thanks for your post!

After researching the issue you are having with your Electrolux dishwasher it is possible that resetting your appliance may help. I would disconnect power from your dishwasher by unplugging it or flipping the household breaker for roughly ten minutes. If this does not resolve your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional to properly diagnose and repair your dishwasher. -T

Need user manual.


simple, connect to faucet and be sure unit is positioned to drain into sink. make sure nothing prevents sink from draining. turn on hot water and wash for approximately 10 minutes. since it does not wash very well a longer duration might be in order and or hand washing anything that is not thoroughly washed. It unfortunately will consume lots of water and you need a water pressure from the faucet that is at least 10psi. removing the aerator many times will increase water pressure if needed.

Have you tried to turn the mains power to dishwasher off and back on again.

It also possible the inlet water temperature is not at the recommended temperature so it is compensating for heating it to the desired temperature. Please check if your installation guide says you use cold water inlet or hot water inlet.

Try running on one of the eco cycles first to see if the heater is the cause. Eco cycles use lower temperature inlet water.

Water-inlet valve Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it.

Be sure to read and understand any instructions that come with the new water inlet valve.

Dishwasher wont start washing but start light is flashing 11 times


hi...
The cause of the problem is an insufficient rise in water temperature during a pre-set time period. The heater fault-detection program that was added to the electronic control is designed to shut down the dishwasher if the board-test for proper water temperature rise is not sufficient.
The dishwasher run cycle was modified to add 8 minutes 45 seconds of heat at the beginning of the main wash cycle. If the inlet water at the thermistor is below 110°F, the thermistor looks for a water rise of 4°F. If the inlet water is over 110°F, the test is for an increase of 2°F. If the temperature rise is below specifications, the unit will drain and the clean light will blink seven times.
You will need to identify possible causes of insufficient temperature rise. These causes may include checking the wiring to/failure of the control, the heating element, the thermistor, the inlet valve, door switch, motor or capacitor. Make sure that water is not siphoning during fill. Once the heater fault detection is triggered and the condition resolved, the electronic control must be reset by initiating a special diagnostic cycle. Use the Product Tech Sheet shipped with each dishwasher — you’ll find it behind the kickplates — to identify the correct cycle sequence. The rapid advance cycle will not properly reset the electronic control....

Here are the eco related error codes for your washer..
1)Light 3 (eco) flashes. Water is present in the flood catching tray at the bottom which usually indicates that there is a leak somewhere. More often than not this is just a pipe with a poor fitting and simply tightening the clip is enough to stop the leak. Our machine had a very slow leak from one pipe (not enough to trigger the alarm) which was fixed in this way. The leak is detected by a small float switch located in the flood catch tray.

Undo 4 screws on the metal plate under the dishwasher 3 at the front 1 at the back, this reveals The pump check the seals are in place on the waste pump.

2) Wash indicator lights 3 + 5 (eco + pre) flashing rapidly. Filter is clogged. Pull out the filter and clean it.
3)Runs for approx. 3 minutes and then stops. Lights 3 + 4 (eco and fast) flash. Probably caused by being plumbed into a hot rather than cold water supply. The incoming water is hotter than required for the wash which causes the machine to cut out. Plumbing the machine into a cold water supply will fix the problem with no apparent long term problems.
