Question about Electrolux 24 in. EDW5505EPS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
My new electrolux dishwasher has an error code 01, which states, "leak Detector - When water is detected under the tub. I have removed the kick plate and checked for leaks, I don't see any. How do I troubleshoot this issue?
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.

I had the same problem, the sears guy came out and found water in the bottom pan of the unit.(Unit has to be pulled out to get to the pan.) He suggested that the back legs of the diswasher were too high and water was unable to drain out properly. So he lowered the legs and we will pull the dishwasher out in about 2 months to check for water in the pan.

This dishwasher is a piece a junk. This happened 3 times already. Take a shop vac and **** all of the water from the bottom of the tub. You'll need to remove the mesh filter and really get all of the water out. I attached the end of a turkey baster to the end of my shop vac to get all the way down.
Put a fan in the dishwasher with the door open for 48 hours. Try turning the unit on again. This has worked three put of three times.

Ugh I am so FED UP with every Electrolux appliance in my house!! I have the dishwasher, refrigerator, and washer and dryer and not a single one of them are worth their price tag. Garbage!! Anyway, this morning my dishwasher gave me an 01 code. This is the first time this has happened. So from what I'm reading, I'm gonna have to pull it out from under the counter and dismantle it to see if there's water backed up somewhere? Ridiculous.
Just FYI for others who are unfortunate enough to have this piece of junk in their house, the touch panel controls on it have also stopped working more than once. Sometimes they come back to life with sheer patience and occasionally slamming the door really hard, but ultimately my husband had to take the entire front of the dishwasher off and replace some part to get it working again. Even so, after all that, the same thing happened just a few days later. Should have done our due diligence before we bought this piece of junk!!

I've just had the same problem (error 01) after 6 years of use. We've been noticing leaking at the bottom of the door the last few weeks. I was able to clear the error code by holding High Temp, and it's now running a full cycle. Before running I took a close look at the rubber seals around the door. There was a lot of "yuck" under the edge of the seals, especially in the lower corners. This was keeping the seals from sealing properly. When I started it there was still a small leak. Opened it up and noticed the bottom seal where the "yuck" was was bent now and not fitting over the flange when the door closed. I closed the door holding it over the flange and the leak is gone. I'm hoping that after cleaning out under this seal it bend itself back into shape, otherwise I need to buy a new seal. Lesson in this, check under the edge of the seals and clean occasionally.

I have used the same method as Rudy about 10 times now. Only difference - I put my blow dryer in the tub obn and off so as not to overheat and I can have the thing running again within an hour or so.

Hi - Error code E01, typically indicates that a water leak has been detected under the tub. Unit may possibly need a hydraulic kit; however I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Hello Shirley - Typically error code ER01 indicates that a water leak is detected under the tub. Unit will possibly need a hydraulic kit. Try unplugging the unit or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the unit back on. Could the error code DF possibly be PF? If so, PF means power failure and you should be able to start a cycle. If the error code continues to display on dishwasher then I suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose and repair it.
