Hello jack SparWelcome,

You said, Put detergent in a dishlex dishwasher now the pump stays on a& the dishwasher does not work, just displays a flashing red eco light

What is the BRAND and MODEL Number and year of your dishwasher. Model can be found on sticker inside.

Did you turn off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes to see if it resets the system?
If this is not the case, Please explain!
What do you mean the pump stays on?????????????????????????


If it is not getting water and not working then these may be the problem
Water source turned off
Check to ensure the water source is turned on and water is getting to the water inlet valve.

Float switch
The float switch allows water to enter into the machine to a point where the float will rise up off of the switch and disconnect power to the water inlet valve. If the switch is defective or the float is stuck in the up position, the water will not enter into the machine

Defective water inlet valve

If there is 110v across the two wires on the water inlet valve when the machine is set to fill, the valve should open and the water should enter into the machine. If the water does not enter, the valve is defective.


Defective Timer

The timer is a series of switches that controls all machine functions. If one of the contacts in the timer is defective, the machine will lose that function. knowledge of the the use of a vol/ohmmeter is essential to testing the timer as well as the ability to read the timer sequence chart that is supplied with the machine. In most cases this requires a professional technician.

Hi there, we have had our dishlex 300 dishwasher switched off for a while and today I turned it on. I started a cycle and it stopped after a few minutes and then the Eco button started flashing. I opened...


Hi just read your posting.Now the reason these dishwashers flash ECO is because there is either water in the bottom tray or your drain pump is open circuit.Is the machine making a pumping noise when it is flashing the ECO light,or is it completely silent?Please reply on additional information and I am sure I can help you.Looking forward to your reply.

Dishlex dishwasher has flashing eco light and won't stop draining


you need to remove the bottom panel under the door, under the machine you will find a small cup on an arm attched to a micro switch this cup is for an over flow ie when the fill setting is incorrect or when the wrong detergent is used ie to many suds empty this cup, thsi should solve your problem

Hotpoint FDW60 flashing eco light


if the eco light is flashing, this indicates that saftey float switch has activated in the base of the dishwasher usually caused by a leak, a polystyrene float activates a microswitch which cuts of the water inlet supply

Dishlex global 300 dishwasher, eco light flashing sounds like pump noise but not working


Try taking the dishwasher out of its wall space and tipping it back and forth. Apparently the weight of water gathering in some component triggers the 'eco' function. Failing that, last time it happened to my dishwasher i waited a week for the repair guy to arrive, by which time the water had evaporated and there was no longer a problem..

Dishlex dishwasher global 300. Dishwasher continues to drain with ECO light flashing. Service manual says it is due to an incorrect fill level or fill line.


Some diswashers have a sump in the bottom with a float switch. If the water level overflows the float will activate the switch which will kill the machine and run the drain pump continuously.
