Question about Electrolux Dishwashers

The tube at the back of the EDW5500DS Dishwasher broke/wore out. It is attached to the exiting tube from the dishwasher. How do I replace this piece? I've tried numerous stores but none keep any parts. Signed, Jim Donovan

    The component is Electolux Built In Dishwasher, Model Number EDW5500DSS Serial Number AH41201968.

    Any help in getting diagrams or part numbers would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Unfortunately that website does NOT show the part. It is in the back left hand corner of the Electrolus Dishwasher Model EDW5500DSS.

    I wonder if yoiu need to buy the tube that it is connected to the back of the dishwasher that this hose is attached to that runs through another lead.

    The website gave me hoses listed as #303,#315, #317, #331 and #338 but these were not the part that I need to replace.

    I believe the part maybe #312...but I can't be for sure??? I can't believe no one who has ever owned the Electrolux EDW5500DSS never had to repair this item.
    I am going to send three photos to FixYa which the first part shows where the part is located. The other two photos will be the bottom of the dishwasher that is in the middle.
    Remember the broken tube/hose was in the left hand corner.
    I put up the $9.99 because your site said "Technical Support, Instructions & Repair Service". So far you've only pinted me to other websites.
    Signed,

A description of the tube would be helpful if you can... material it's made of and design (straight, lots of bends etc) as well as the type(s) of fittings on each end.

Http://www.partselect.com/Electrolux-Dishwasher-Parts.htm, try here and call them. I find that talking to someone who has the knowledge will trump just trying to diagnose it yourself. This way you can not only get the part but some good advise on how to install it, good luck, Gym

    If you call the site up, they know exactlly the part and will explain how to install it for you. I have found that the people who do these things like "dishwashers", know every part in most products that they sell, and as long as you are nice on the phone, most will bend over backwards to earn your business. It's to their advantage to satisfy you so that you use and recomend them. Just give them a ring and talk to the guy. They have helped me many times, even when they advised me to not do certain things, because they cost too much and were not worth fixing. Even on the chance that they didn't stock the part, they will tell you where you can get it.

    the reason that you are being directed to other sites is that we cannot diagnose the problem other than what you tell us, If a regular repairman came to your home it would cot you between $200.00-250.00, to diagnose the repair get the part and install it. I think your expectations are rather high for us not being able to get a clear picture of the problem other than what you provide. What I tried to explain to you was that if you call a place that sells and repairs your specific machine. They will know what part you need and explain to you how to install the part Jim. We can only do so much through the computer screen, and even though there are many people here who I am sure have worked in the field of expertise that you request, they may not have worked on that model, as there are thousands of different models. Again I advise you to call a parts dealer and ask them the name and model number of the part. Installing this stuff is easy I did my own and I am sure that all you will need is a screwdriver. Good luck

Drain line for dishwasher broke


It's not a hard fix, but you may have to pull the dishwasher out to replace the drain line. Find the correct size clear plastic tubing. You should be able to use the old fasteners.

Chances are the plastic catch broke or wore off. If that's the case, you have to replace the entire soap dispenser.

Dishes are not getting clean. Dishwasher does not take off the smallest speck of food. Hot water works. Cycles sound the same


There could be a couple of things that might be affecting the cleaning ability of your dishwasher.
First,there is a pipe/tube that runs up the back of the inside of your dishwasher. This provides water for the top spray arm. The spray arm has a feeder tube that covers the pipe in the back. If for some reason the feeder tube has come dislodged, the water just drips back down into the dishwasher, never touching your upper shelf. My children used to put large items into the lower shelf and in so doing, would dislodge the upper spray arm feeder tube. Just pull out the upper shelf and check to see that the tube is in the correct position. This should solve the problem.

If not, it could be that the upper or lower spray arms may have debris that keeps the water from being forced through the jets. You'll need to flush the arm with the spray attachment on your kitchen sink. I sometimes use tweezers or a toothpick to dislodge bits of peelings, paper, or bone that manage to get into the sprayer arm.
I hope one of these tips helps. If it does,please come back to fixya and rate my answer.

Smells when door is opened


Hi, this is most likely due to food waste stuck in the drain or the drain tube connected to the disposal. Remove bottom rack of dishwasher, then clear any debris from the drain located normally in the center. Be careful, many times I find broken glass in the drain. Next you want to check the drain line. Under the sink there is a flexible drain tube attached the the disposal or main drain stack for the kitchen sink. That is the drain for the dishwasher. Food and other things get stuck along the way and do not make it to the main drain and start stinking. Clean or replace the dishwasher drain tube.

DU943PWK won't drain


If you take the bottom panel off the DW, there is a white plastic tube that is sticking out, but attached to the motor. Turn the tube counter clockwise ( Please be sure to have wet vac ready as this tube will let water out, even if you think you have all water out, still have wet vac and towels ready) Pieces of things get stuck in that tube and make it hard to drain.. replace tube to motor after cleaning and test unit

Upper wash tube assembly came off back of unit. can not reattach.


We had the same problem with our Bosch 4800 and found that the upper wash arm and tube assembly should attach to the bottom of the upper rack (rather than to the back of the dishwasher). The wash arm and tube assembly slides in and out with the upper rack. When the dishwasher door is closed the tube assembly is forced up against the back mounting/water supply.

Broken fitting


You don't have to change that piece,just tie the hose (drain hose ) to something that is equal height,this prevents siphoning.

Heating element broken, water leaking


You have to pull out dishwasher to replace the element.The element is easy to replace once you have pulled dishwasher out.This enables you to reach the area that you need to reach.It is common for a element to brake.On a newer dishwasher ,I would say it must have been defective if it just broke in half.Nothing electrical in a dishwasher can cause it to brake.

E4 error on new conia dishwasher


Had the same problem. First you will need to tilt dishwasher back 45 degrees and tip out all excess water. A couple of towels on the floor are a good idea.

Second check that the little nozzle on the elbow under your sink where your overflow attaches is drilled out.

This fixed my problem after fussing around for a day and I was starting to disconnect everything to take it back.

Dishwasher leaves residue in top rack only


Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough water. It could be cause of the switch level, which control water level in the tub. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with your machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Be aware you should discoonect the power cable !!! Clear the tube (attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub) from any obstruction.In case it will not solve the problem, you should replace the switch. Good luck !
