I understand your Electrolux dishwasher will not start, but the buttons are lighting up. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Sometimes there can be a miscommunication between the different boards inside your appliance. Restore power and Start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. If further troubleshooting is needed, please leave me your model number, so I am able to better assist. Hope this is helpful.
I have same brand dishwasher as you but different model, suggest it would still have the same fault as mine. I searched for the faulty solder join on my circuit board as per the forum and soldered the area but still would not heat. I spoke to local parts supplier who stated that heater element is not the problem, it would definitely be the circuit board. I took the circuit board to them and paid for a changeover board (approx $90 AUSTRALIAN). I went home and installed the circuit board in the dishwasher door and started it up. It does not show start up settings on display as per normal but just start the dishwasher anyway and it resets the circuit board after running a complete wash cycle (any cycle will do, doesn't matter which one you choose). All worked well after that, no problems since replacement of board.
I see that the heavy light is staying lit on your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EIDW6105GS1QA, even after resetting your appliance at the circuit breaker. I also see that there are no lights lit up behind the kickboard, indicating what might be failing. It could possibly be the control board underneath your dishwasher. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing the heavy light to stay lit. I hope this is helpful.
Good Afternoon David - When the light is on, the control is
locked and no cycles can be selected or started. To de-select the Control Lock,
press and hold the heat dry key or press down on the lock icon for
approximately twenty seconds. If issue persists, you may reset the dishwasher
by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait
approximately ten minutes and turn the unit back on. The dishwasher should
resume to normal operations.
Hi dan76n - Typically PF appears in the display when the dishwasher is first installed, or when power has been interrupted. HI-TEMP WASH, SANITIZE and START/CANCEL backlighting will also flash. To clear, touch START/CANCEL pad. If it proves to be ineffective, once again try resetting the dishwasher by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes, restart unit and select a cycle. If the problem continues, the dishwasher could possibly be experiencing a wiring failure or faulty board. At this point I will highly recommend connecting with a certified technician for a further diagnosis and to accurately assist with the repair(s).
Re: clean light blinks seven times on Kenmore Dishwasher model # 66516034401
After reading online and studying the parts diagram/list (included with
paperwork that came with washer) and troubleshooting guide/wiring
schematic (located under the bottom front kick panel) I determined it
could only be 5 things, all easy to look at and check when you pull out
the dishwasher (remove racks first and cut power via the circuit
They are heating element, wiring check for burn marks/melting), high
limit thermostat (mounted on bottom of tub against tub, detects if tub
overheats), thermistor (screw in mount near motor, detects process temp
inside dishwasher, and the control panel. Unfortunately, I started
buying and replacing the parts piecemeal (first high limit thermostat,
then thermistor, then heating element, even though it tested good).
Only then did I remove the panel (top 6 screws inside door, no need to
remove the whole door panel) and check the circuit board. After
separating the circuit board from its plastic case that covers the back
of the board, I saw that the back of the board was badly
burned/blackened about the size of a fifty cent piece around the heater
circuit relay (this was not visible from the front). Bingo. I should
have done a comprehensive check first and save $100 on parts that were
probably good. When ordering online, the circuit board part was
changed, perhaps to an improved part if the relay burning out is a
common problem. Good luck.
Check to see if the heat element in the bottom inside is all crusty or cracked, if so replace, if not, unplug unit from house current, pull bottom toe panel off, you should see where heat element comes thru cabinet and has two wires attached, remove wires, take ohm meter and check for reading, if reading is ok then you either have bad control timer circuit (main board) or blown thermal fuse. Call tech to check further if you do not have original tech sheet or electrical background. My bet is that you have a bad heat element.
it sounds like the control board is faulty. have you checked for dry solder joints on the control board? also it is important the check the resistance of the taco on the wash motor. last of all don't worry to much about the 2k ohms of the temp sensor as it can vary lots depending on the temperature.
if you give me ur email i can send you the service manual and wiring diagram.
