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.

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.

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

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.

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
