Question about Electrolux 24 in. ESI6220X Free-standing Dishwasher
Model: electrolux ESF 6162 It seems there is a problem with draining in my dish-washer. As a result it does not work. I can choose a washing program and start it, but it does not start washing. Instead it looks like the maschine attempts to drain the water from the dishwasher and cannot do it. As a result approximately in 5 minutes the dishwasher starts showing a flashing indicator light as described below. According to dishwasher's instruction book, if there is a continous flashing of the indicator light of the running programme and in the digital display appears .20 it means that the dishwasher will not drain. The instruction book says that two causes are possible. One is that the sink spigot is blocked. Another is that the water drain hose has not been correctly laid or it is bent or squashed. I checked the sink spigot and it seems it is ok. Checked the water drain hose connection and again it seems to be ok. And the problem persists... Just in case here is additional information: we use the dishwasher for 1.5 years. We only cleaned the filters several times. May be some other maintanance works must have been performed... I would appreciate any advice very much. Thank you.
I just moved into a new house and builder had provided a dish washer drain just below my kitchen drain line.
DIsh washer install was done by me, every thing worked out OK except dish washer would not drain after a wash cycle.
Cause: drain provided by builder was blocked and needed a circular small cut before mounting drain hose over it.

Bear in mind first program action is drain but at this point there should be only a small amount of liquid in machine.check spigot is free by pouring a little water down it. blow thro drain hose to check free as well - you can get a fat blockage in drain hose. if both are free you may have a blockage in exit to pump.the only other maintenaince is to use a dishwasher 2-3 times a year

Hello Gene Skates - Typically error code E11 indications that there is an issue with the drain valve, possibly the main control board is timing out before receiving status of drain valve. This is typically not a DIY job and strongly recommend contacting a professional to check the wiring between the main control board and drain valve since you have already replaced the drain valve.
