JB, make sure the float assy. is not stuck inside the tub. On the motor harness, you have yellow-main, red-drain grey-wash and blue is the common. Check for power to the motor during the wash cycle. On this model I believe they installed a thermal cut out after series 11. I'll keep an eye peeled for any replies..Catriver.

    jb, it's a limiting thermostat, sits on the bottom of the tub, undernieth, inline with the heaters. Check to see if it's open, Did you have power to the motor during the wash cycle? Catriver

    jb, did you do the voltage checks at the motor? The dried oil, syrup looking stuff could be coming from the start capacitor for the wash motor. If that's bad, motor won't start. Catriver.

    Ron Marek Jun 09, 2007

    Jb, I think you found your problem, power to the motor and motor isn't running. During the wash cycle, Grey to blue should be reading 120V. The motor does have a internal overload. Catriver.

Have to slam dishwasher door to make it go electrolux 4000


Hello David Horn - The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may also prevent the unit to start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Dishwasher will not start


  • Door latch.
    Make sure door is closed and properly latched.
  • Delay start option.
    If delay start option is available, has it been set and is unit still in time delay before starting.
  • Cycle setting.
    Check to see if cycle is set correctly (refer to Operating Instructions in the "Use & Care Manual").

    If the machine is filling and washing but not advancing then the timer mechanism is not fuctioning. There is no codes so all other parts must be working, likke the pressure switch. You might test the door or lid switch this can sometimes hang these up. to test simply jump across the switch with a jumper wire. Basically
  • If the washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer does not advance, the timer probably needs to be replaced
  • If the timer does not advance while the washer is in a spin cycle, the timer probably needs to be replaced
  • I am supplying the service manual for this machine. Please be careful when attempting any repair and always make sure the machine is unplugged before starting any repair. This manual include service guides for testing components as well if your capable of these tests. The link will lead you to the manual. These manuals are not easy to come by due to the fact they are meant for service personell who make a living on these so it is inclusive and should help you in you issue.
