Question about Electrolux 24 in. EDW5505EPS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
We get error P10. Manual says it's a problem with water inlet filter. Programme stops running and bleeps and P10 flashes. I guess it's not filling up properly but if you press programme again it will restart for another 10 mins before the same problem occurs. Cannot locate this filter even though we have looked underneath, at the back and inside. Help.
I know what the problem is.
The 10 error relates to a water inlet problem. In my case the water was going in, but after about a minute it would display the error code and beep.
I knew the computer would sense for the incoming water and if it doesn't sense the water entering I assumed it goes into the error. There are two water pressure switches near the wash cavity base on the right side (looking from the front) which do the sensing. Each has a hose going from the switch to the sump at the bottom of the wash cavity.
At first I checked each pressure switch with a multimeter. I removed each hose from the sump andI gently blew into each hose while watching the multimeter. An audible click can be heard and the meter showed the switch closed indicating both pressure switches were OK.
Next I reconnected each hose to the sump and removed the other end from each pressure switch. A gentle blow into each revealed one hose connection to the sump was blocked. The blockage prevents the water level from activating the pressure switch at the appropiate time. The other sump hose connection was OK.
With an air compressor I blew compressed air back up the hose and into the sump on the blocked side. I lay the dish washer onto the left side to make it easier and to ensure the blockage would not remain in the sump when blown out. A clump of food scum was cleared from the sump with the compressed air.
Put it all back together and I don't need to wash by hand again and I have one happy wife.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these points must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.
If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn around to inject with pressure. If so the pump must be checked for clogging.
Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water.
Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.
