Success....Error 11 on Electrolux dishwasher?
I have an Electrolux EWDW 6505 which in the start of a wash cycle would start beeping and Error code 11 would display.
The problem: Drain Valve (Small copper lever switch inside)
Solution 1.
1. Kill breaker to dish washer.
2. Pull dish washer out from under counter. (If you open door, usually held in by 2 screws above door that are screwed in under counter top.
3. Tip washer onto its back side.
4. Remove ss front plate below door(Held in with 2 screws).
5. Remove white cover plate from bottom of dish washer (held in by 3 Phillips screws)(TO REMOVE - Pull from bottom front of dish washer then slide towards back of dishwasher).
If the washer is laying on its back, the drain valve is located at the bottom left side of the machine (Closest to the floor).

A. Remove the electrical connection to the Drain Valve by pulling
it out from plug like harness socket.

B. There are two star (T-20) head screws holding the drain valve
on. Remove them from the bottom and pull the pump down
and away from the Dishwasher to remove it.

C. There are two hoses connected to the drain valve.
One is held on by a metal screw down clamp fastener.
(just turn the screw counter clockwise till lose then slide hose
The other is held on by a spring band type fastener.
(Just compress the ends together with pliers and slide off.
If you look at the valve, the top is white and the bottom is
black. There are white tab like structures extending over the
black part of the unit. This is where you want to separate the
unit very carefully. If you bend them too much they will
snap off or crack.
You want to easily and Gently lift and
wiggle them away from the black hook like stops. The unit will
then begin to separate. BE CAREFUL, THERE ARE 3

A. Remove the white part and set it aside.
B. Look at the black side under the housing. Here is where
you will find the PROBLEM
. There is a blue lever that sits in a stem under a copper arm. When the DRAIN VALVE rotates in normal operation it presses on the blue lever causing it to press on the copper arm, which makes contact with the other copper side and closes the circuit. As the Drain valve continues to rotate, it releases the blue lever WHICH SHOULD SPRING BACK AND OPEN THE CIRCUIT AGAIN.
NOTE: (Try not to separate the two black pieces while doing this or you will see the gears maybe pop out and two copper springs and motor. NOT A BIG DEAL IF IT HAPPENS. the 3 gears will fit together on their stems, the springs both slide one into each hole, the botor goes on top and the two arms come in contact with the springs)
C. THE FIX - LOOK at the blue lever. Right above it you will see a copper arm. Touch the Right side of the arm (where it is connected) with your finger and pull it down in the direction of the blue lever (ever so slightly just to give it its springiness back. so now if you emulate pushing up on the blue lever and release it, the copper arm should make contact with the other copper side, then, spring back on its own. (IT IS NOT FIXED UNTIL IT SPRINGS BACK ON ITS OWN) so adjust the copper arm accordingly.

REVERSE steps above to reassemble the washer.

Hello - 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. I strongly recommend contacting the technician that repaired your unit previously to check the wiring between the main control board and drain valve. Some certified technicians warranty their labor and part for 30 days.

SOURCE: F2 error code on my Kenmore Elite HE3 washer

Based upon your description, the drain pump has either failed or the pump filter has become clogged.
To check the pump, remove the bottom access panel. There you will find access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap) BE READY TO CATCH LOTS OF WATER. CAREFULLY AND S_L_O_W_L_Y unscrew the pump clean-out, catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops, completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter, the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any additional debris.

If you need further assistance, let me know

SOURCE: F2 error code on my Kenmore Elite HE3 washer

Depending on how fritzed your drain pump is this may or may not work. I've been using HE detergent because it is supposed to cause fewer suds. However, apparently is causing more suds than needed. I need to use only a couple tablespoons? If your clothes are not dirty enough for the soap to grab onto then extra suds are the result. The repair guy said we had an excessive amount of suds in the system and this affects the sensor and causes the drain pump to run and run and run until it shuts off from overheating. This is why we get the F2 and/or suds error code. He said once a month run the machine on the hottest water cycle with a cup of bleach (no clothes). This will clear out any suds build-up and is cheaper than Afresh which works, too, (but smells cleaner than bleach). After sitting for a day our pump started working again (yay!) It also stopped making the horrible loud sound. So glad I do not have to replace the pump!! yet...(knock on wood!).

SOURCE: check hose error on electrolux wave touch washing machine

I'm sure nojallo1 has already fixed his but I just ran into the same problem and didn't find anything in my searches for a solution. The problem I had was the test cycle wasn't long enough to get hot water through my water lines so it could verify the hot and cold hoses were in the proper places. Solution: Turn the hot water on in all the sinks in your house until they have hot water running through them. This will prime your hot water line so it is full of hot water instead of cold water. Then run the install cycle again and it should be fine.

SOURCE: Bosch Error Code 13 Washer won't drain

First, unplug your washer. After that find the little round plate below your drum opening on the exterior of the washer. It should have a small hole in it. Use something to gently push trough this hole and twist the cover off, Inside there you will find the drain access. Be careful, if there is water in your drum this will make a mess when you unscrew the drain access. Take the usual precautions and unscrew the drain access slowly until it is off. Remove any obstructions and replace access door and cover. Clean up any mess and plug back in your washer and try again. takes about thirty minutes to an hour depending on how much water is in the drum.

Have an error code 01 on my electrolux dishwasher

Good Morning Friend, I am happy to assist you!

Typically error code ER01 indicates that a water leak has been detected under the tub of your Electrolux dishwasher. Your dishwasher may possibly need a hydraulic kit. Try unplugging your dishwasher or flipping the household circuit breaker off first. It is good to wait approximately ten minutes and turn on your appliance. If the error code continues to display, then I recommend contacting a professional to make a precise diagnosis. Best regards! - Z

What additional parts may fix error code 11 on electrolux EDW7505HPS0A

Good Afternoon Friend, thank you for your post!

If you are receiving an error code E11 on your Electrolux dishwasher (EDW7505HPS0A), it usually means that you are experiencing a problem with the drain valve. If you have already replaced the vale and pump, at this point, I would recommend reaching out to a professional or alternatively, visit the manufacturer website for a comprehensive listing of appliance techs in your area that can ensure the wiring between the main control and the drain valve was correctly installed. Best regards! - Z

Electrolux EWDW6505GS error 01

If your dishwasher is still experiencing an error 01, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

Error code 1 Electrolux

I found that after 3 washes the flood well had enough water to activate the float switch thereby rendering the machine inoperable. What I done was drill a small hole in the plastic base well - the waster that drains out is minimal, not even noticed, but enough to keep the machine working.

Error code 01 keeps coming up and will not let dishwasher complete its cycle. My dishwasher no. is ewdw6505gso and it is only 3 years old. I have 2 other appliances that are Electrolux. Please help.

Mine was only a few months old when error 01 arrived - it is a leak. The Electrolux dishwashers have a leak detector at the bottom inside the plastic pan, that when water appears it sets off the code and you cannot restart the dishwasher until you dry the pan out (tip the unit forward and water will come out) but it will keep on doing it unless you repair it - mine was covered under warranty and they replaced a lot of parts at the bottom. Not even a year later it leaked again, but not as bad. I took it apart and removed a fabric pad that sits in the bottom of the pan, it does not go off that much any more since the water evaporates before it does any damage. I think this feature is completely useless - I would rather see a wet spot on the floor than not be able to do dishes... If you got 3 years you are doing well. I will just replace my appliances as they die and never buy Electrolux ever again! PS if a refrigerator is one of your other units, be aware that their main boards can fail and are very expensive to replace. You will know it is blown when your food freezes in the lower compartment and your lights come on instantly instead of glowing up slowly.

Error 01 code on led screen and dishwasher does not function.

Errror 01 is a leak detector. In the base of the unit the is a sensor to check for water. If this sensor is activated it will stop the unit from running. The water must be removed, in order for the sensor to reset. It will not reset if it senses water in the base. You can remove the to toe panel, and open the center compartment where the electronic control is mounted. On the top left side there is a series of LEDs that indicate the exact nature of the error code.
