Yes I had the same problem. One of the solder joints on the relay was cracked but hardly visable. Resoldered it and no problems.
How to do it:
Make sure you turn off the power at the wall and pull out the plug. To get to the circuit board remove the screws on the inside top of the door and pull out the front panel (where the buttons are). Press the little clips and the white box containing the circuit board comes free. Remove all the plugs and lever open the small clips holding the box shut. After you open the box pull the circuit board up and have a look at the contacts under the black little box (relay). Use a soldering iron and some flux cored solder and redo the joints. Put it all back together and turn on to see how it goes.
Worked for me.
All the best......

Ther have been a lot of complaints about the drying performance of these machines. One solution suggested by Electrolux is to use the "anti bacterial" wash mode, as this is a higher temperature wash, therefore dishes dry better. If you are using Eco wash or Quick wash, drying performance is not very good- Electrolux recommend leaving door ajar at end of cycle to improve drying. Also, ensure your Rinse Aid compartment is topped up, as Rinse Aid greatly improves drying performance.
-Please note: these dishwashers will not dry plastics and other items that do not hold the heat very well!!
-Also, you should be able to hear the drying fan running at the end of cycle- if not, then you may have faulty fan (uncommon), or control board (more common).

SOURCE: Not drying dishes
The fact that it does not work on all three settings suggests it's something common to all three. Sounds like perhaps your immersion heater is bad or even worse, some contacts or relay in the control circuitry of the drying cycle. To check the immersion heater will require you to pull out the washer from under the counter & to remove power from the appliance. Looking underneath the unit, remove a power lead from one side of the heater unit. Next, turn a volt/ohm meter to the highest ohms setting, turn it on, and touch the two leads together to make sure it's working. It should show zero no matter what ohms setting you have selected. Next touch each lead to each of two posts on the heater unit. It should show some resistance other than zero if it is good. If still zero, you will need to get a replacement heater from your fav local appliance store or go on-line and order it. Either way, make sure they have the full identification of your washer make/model. Let me know results?

SOURCE: dishlex dx 302 heat drying
Found I had no hot water in my Dishlex DX302 and did a google search and
found this page.
My problem was found to be the same as the others; one of the solder joints on the relay on the control board had arced off.
You could see the burn mark on the board and cover where it had been arcing.
Soldered it back together, and now it seems to be going good again.
Now my only problem is a damaged door seal, which means a small water leak; I have used part of a rubber glove to bridge the gap, and it reduces the water leak.
