SOURCE: i have a electrolux dishlex dx302 that will not

Hi,
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......

SOURCE: dishlex dx 403 does not dry dishes - fan dry on red led

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).
Good luck!!

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.

Dishes still wet upon end of cycle


Check if the heater is working. This can be done by checking if the dishwasher has steam and dishes are warm when cycle is complete. Also check if the Rinse aid has not finished. Make sure the Rinse aid dosage is not at too low.

How do I get the Electrolux dishwasher to dry the dishes?


Hello, I've got a suggestion and at first it may sound like I'm pulling it out of my...left field. I'll tell you the what and then I'll explain why. Try this, take a rag or paper towel and soak it with "rinse aid" AKA, "jet dry" and apply it to the top of the tub and to a lesser degree the sides as well. I suggest this to all my customer's with new dishwasher's. Now the why...all dishwasher's require assistance to dry your dishes, some more than other's. Hence the need for an additive such as jet dry, it is simply a wetting agent which help's the water run off the dishes and as a result they dry better. So why put it on the tub ? Glad you asked. The reason is exactly the same, on older dishwasher's that have had many year's of use the tub has already built up some wetting agent on the tub just by normal and continued use, the new obviously has not. The only jet dry the new one has is the added amount in the dispenser. Over a short time of regular use the unit would start to dry better on it's own, this just speed's up the process. By adding the jet dry to the tub you create a seathing action allowing water to run off before & during the dry cycle as to not have water in the form of condensation dripping back onto the dishes when the cycle is complete, which leaves you with dry dishes as opposed to wet dishes. Make sense ? I hope so, it really work's. Hope you found this helpful. If so please rate the info you received frome jere at "fixya" today and good luck. Let me know if I can assist you further. I hope you didn't find this too difficult to read, I had to use my iphone, it's the only internet connection I have at the moment. Macmarkus :)

Dx302 dry joint found what do i solder ?


Putting a small dob of solder on it should work just fine, make sure you get a nice hot even solder. Although if you have some small guage copper wire try to bridge the dry solder joint to the solder track that it shares on the same circuit on the PCB. This should be a much better fix.
