From the information you have posted you need to replace the internal light bulb in your Electrolux dishwasher. In order to assist you properly I would need to have your model number. You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside left hand wall of your dishwasher. Once I have that additional information I would be able to provide you with proper instructions on how to replace the bulb. I look forward to assisting you further. -Matt
Puzzled over this for a bit and finally pulled the dishwasher out from the cabinet. It's easy to replace the bulb from the outside. Socket is part of the wire guide which pops out with a screwdriver (see photo).
I can see threads on the inside dome but for the life of me I still can't get the dome to turn. Perhaps a special tool fitting the nubs would give one some leverage.
I replaced the 12v 5W halogen with a 12v 2.9W led assembly that has the same G4 base. Works well and should last longer than I will.
The tiny metal tabs that contact the very end of the light bulb after it is screwed in making a circuit get pushed back too far when you tighten the bulb and with all the steam and muck eventually fail to make contact. shut down the power and use a tiny screwdriver to gently nudge the electrical contacts back up "a little cleaning wouldn't hurt either" look at the very bottom of your bulb, clean that too perhaps with a few strokes of a wire brush, gently put the bulb back in and you are good to go, mine did the same thing.
check where the pig tail the plug going into the wall follow the plug wire to the connection at the dishwasher. You will need to remove the bottom panel of the dishwasher at the floor. This access panel allows you to see the underneath of the dishwasher. Where the plug wire (pig tail) connects to the dishwasher it is in a small square box on either the right side or left at the front of the dishwasher. Unplug your washer and remove the cover off of this box and check to see if the connections are indeed connected.
you need to take the very bottom panel off the dishwasher. This panel is located at the floor and is held on with 2 philips head screws once the panel is removed look for an electrical plug located under the dishwasher(use a flashlight for the best look) What you are looking for is a "pig Tail" which is a small section of what looks like an extension cord which should run into a small metal box (make sure your breaker is off before going any further) Now remove the screw holding the flap to this metal box and look to see if the cord is connected to the proper power feed to the dishwasher, should be wire nuts on the ends of the wires. untwist the wire nuts and make sure the wires are properly twisted together black to one wire off the pig tail and white to the other side. Follow the wiring back to the plug to insure that the end of the pig tail is plugged in. That should cure your problem if you are getting power to this metal box then the problem is internal in the dishwasher itself.
you have a micro switch at the top of door by the door hinge.must remove top vent cover to access. i've found that if the screws (2 or 3 phillips ) get loose the door is not aligned to open and close the light switch . or maybe the switch itself has failed
