    I too have a flashing CF on the dishwasher. The filter is clean. I did find some eggshell and a seed under the filter but no other obstructions. Dishwasher just won't run.

Sale of fire-risk dishwashers banned 5:00AM Thursday July 24, 2008
New South Wales last night banned the sale of dishwasher brands fromAustralia's largest whitegoods supplier after the faulty machines werelinked to a string of home fires.
More than 26,000 Electrolux,Electrolux Dishlex and Westinghouse dishwashers sold in Australia andNew Zealand since April last year have a potential wiring fault.
TheNSW Fair Trading Minister, Linda Burney, said her department had beenalerted to 73 incidents involving the appliances, resulting inexcessive heat and kitchen fires.
Electrolux identified a fault with the dishwashers last year and has issued three appeals to consumers.
"Despitethis, Fair Trading has received reports that fires or incidentscontinue to occur," Ms Burney said. Up to 5000 of the dishwashersremain in households unchecked.
The minister said a wire connector within the appliances could cause plastic components to melt in the control panel.
The largest number of faulty washers are in NSW.
The state Commissioner of Fair Trading has moved to ban NSW retailers from selling their remaining stock of the appliances.
"The prohibition will ensure that any dishwashers not alreadyquarantined by Electrolux, which may be in retail outlets and not inthe possession of Electrolux, are not sold," Ms Burney said.
Theban and the recalls cover Electrolux, Electrolux Dishlex andWestinghouse washers with serial numbers ranging from 70700000 to72400000.
The NSW Government said consumers with one of thesemodels should stop using the machines immediately and contactElectrolux to arrange for a technician to fix the problem.

SOURCE: error code 01 on elecrolux dishwasher EIDW6305GSI

Usually the error code 01 means you backed up water in the unit. First be sure that the drain is clear.  Run the garbage disposal and be sure your sinks are draining.

I got lucky on a EIDW6105 unit by trying this.

All the lights are flashing and it shows error code 01.

Push down on two of the buttons and hold (I pushed on the Favorite and Heavy buttons), until the flashing stops (about 8 seconds).

The machine now showed and error code 08.  Then hit the start button.  My washer then cleared and runs normally.

Hope this helps, better than a sevice call to clear the code.

SOURCE: electrolux Dishwasher 24 " not

if i was at your home as a repairman this is what i would do.if your water pressure was good at the kitchen sink,i would turn water off to dishwasher undo water connection at the fill valve,and place water line in a bucket and turn on water.if ok and still not getting water then prob with fill valve.soooo you have a new valve,did you check the water pressure to the valve? if yes good because then you also flushed out that in coming water line.because[and i have done this a few times]if not flushed their could have been minerals setting in that supply line so when you turn the water back on it pushes that stuff into the new water valve screen and blocks it up also.if your getting water then its trying to do its job,it just cant get enough water and the timer times out so no more voltage to the water valve.thats a lot said but there no mystery to it.the timer allows for lets say a 70 sec fill at 40 lbs water presure ,seventy seconds up that's it .the float only stops it from flooding,too much water.it dose not tell the machine that there is not enough! so because its letting in some water that tells me the float switch is closed[and it should be]leting the voltage to the water valve.the water valve has to let in enough water then.i know i mixed up words a bit but i hope this helps you understand whats happening.God bless ,if you need more advice you can email thru FixYa tom

SOURCE: electrolux dishwasher error code 01

I found the error codes in the owners manual, (01) is a leak. I called customer service (no wait time) and they said there is pan under the tub that will contain and detect water if it leaks. They said I could wait for it to dry out. They said there could be a hose that became loose or had a pin hole in it. After I hung up with customer service I did my own problem solving. The diswasher washing cycle was just started. Then then the door was opened 5 to 6 times to add more utensils and dishes while the the machine was running. Then the error code came on. this was the first time this had happened. I beleive water seeped doen through the hinges and the seal into the pan. I unpluged the dishwasher and disconnected the water line and pulled it from under the counter. Then lifted the diswasher onto 4 inch blocks of wood placed under the feet. This made it easier to access the pan. It had 2 screws inthe front and 1 in the rear with 3 clips. I removed the pan and dried it. Inspected the hoses under the unit and determined none of them had appeared to be leaking. I positioned a fan to blow under the unit to speed up the dry time, about 1/2 an hour. Put everything back together and ran a high pressure hot water cycle and found no leakes, so far.

Electrolux Dishwasher Screen Filter 154624901 this one?

If they are hard water deposits, there is probably other parts coated with lime as well... try running a cycle with this in it- Ice Machine cleaner, it is safe on the plastic parts of an icemaker and meant to clean things that folks eat off of, so it rinses clean. I would use two bottles and then let it fill the rest on it's own...

Hello Darlene, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

The "ER" code that keeps appearing on your Electrolux dishwasher stands for a Membrane Switch Failure. Normally that means that your control board has detected a stuck key or key pressed for more than a minute. That could possibly be an issue with your keypad or main control board. I would recommend having a technician come out to your home to properly diagnose and repair your dishwasher. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

How to remove large food particle trap in a electrolux dishwasher model # EWDW6505GBO


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to remove large food particles that are trapped in your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EWDW6505GB0. First, I would suggest that you scrape away large pieces of food before putting any dish in your dishwasher.

Your dishwasher is equipped with a state of the art wash system. Periodically, the Glass Trap Filter and Large Food Particle Trap may need to be cleaned to maximize wash performance. The Glass Trap Filter is located in the center of the Large Food Particle Trap. The Glass Trap Filter is designed to collect pieces of broken glass, straws, bones and pits. To remove items in the Glass Trap Filter, grasp the handle, lift out, empty and replace. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Error code 01 keeps coming up and will not let dishwasher complete its cycle. My dishwasher no. is ewdw6505gso and it is only 3 years old. I have 2 other appliances that are Electrolux. Please help.


Mine was only a few months old when error 01 arrived - it is a leak. The Electrolux dishwashers have a leak detector at the bottom inside the plastic pan, that when water appears it sets off the code and you cannot restart the dishwasher until you dry the pan out (tip the unit forward and water will come out) but it will keep on doing it unless you repair it - mine was covered under warranty and they replaced a lot of parts at the bottom. Not even a year later it leaked again, but not as bad. I took it apart and removed a fabric pad that sits in the bottom of the pan, it does not go off that much any more since the water evaporates before it does any damage. I think this feature is completely useless - I would rather see a wet spot on the floor than not be able to do dishes... If you got 3 years you are doing well. I will just replace my appliances as they die and never buy Electrolux ever again! PS if a refrigerator is one of your other units, be aware that their main boards can fail and are very expensive to replace. You will know it is blown when your food freezes in the lower compartment and your lights come on instantly instead of glowing up slowly.

No water entering dishwasher electrolux 602


First is water coming into the location and is the valve to the dishwasher open? Next check if the intake hose is bent or squashed. Release the kink blocking water flow.

There is a filter in the intake hose that can get blocked by debris. Turn off the water (at the supply valve) then disconnect the intake hose. Clean the filter. Reconnect the hose and turn the water back on. Check for leaks.

The manual for the unit is available here: http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/electrolux/esi_602.html .

I hope this helps.

Electrolux dishwasher shows code 10 not filling fault and code 20 not draining fault but when running you are able to hear it filling and draining. Whats the problem.?


I had the same issue (Electrolux ESF 6251). I had both error codes 10 and 30. I found that the short hose connecting the inlet valve (solenoid) to the tank was cracked. That explained error code 30, but even after replacing the hose I still got error code 10. I checked water supply and also drain hose and filters. I realized that I had recently tried to flush out lime scale and suspect that the drain or pump had lines could have clogged up. I tried pumping into the floor drain inside the dishwasher (removed the filter cartridge and screen) simply with a suction cup like you use in the kitchen sink. Voila. Now it works again...
