Dishlex global 300. ECO light flashing.

I set the dishwasher as normal (on super). i went back to check a little later and the ECO light was flashing. the machine was making a humming noise as it does when it is operational, however it wasnt operating. i tried switching off at the wall and then back on but it does the same thing. tried pushing the start/pause and the programme buttons simultaneously but nothing changed.
when i opened the door there was no water in there (luckily...) but there were soap suds in the bottom of the dishwasher.

    Yeah I have the same problem. We rang a repair man and he said it might be the pump. I'm pulling it apart so if I find anything I'll let you know. The same thing happened a while ago, we had it repaired and he said some holes were blocked around the inside of the door.

If that fails then try emptying the over flow try found behind the kick panel below the door. 2 phillips screws will be found either side under plastic screw covers, behind kick panel you will find the cover for all internals remove a total of 6 screws from these covers, then with a torch you will see the internal workings of the machine. located at the bottom of it all is a small kidney shaped tray that may have some/alot of water. this is the over flow tray. empty by soaking up the liquid with a sponge. reassemble then try starting it.

Maybe! I pulled the dishwasher out, checked both hoses for blockages, hosed the inside out (particularly around the door seals). There is a plastic nozzle screwed into the roof inside. I took it out and it was clogged, so I cleaned all the slots out, put it back in and connected the dishwasher, and it works! I don't know if your problem is the same, but it's worth a try!

Worked as str82dabank explained. The tray has a float that engages a micro switch when the tray has filled with water. The switch overrides the pump cutout and it keeps cycling~ empty the dish pump stops.....sweet!

Dishlex global 300 : dishwasher dispenser won't


Hi just read your posting.The problem could be a faulty dispenser coil ,or the wires to it are faulty or the computer is faulty.Try selecting a normal eco wash and when you push the start button to start the machine hold the button in until the pre wash light turns off.This should make the dispenser activate straight after it fills.The only way to test which part is faulty is with an electrical meter.Have you or can you borrow one.If so then I can guide you step by step in finding the fault.please reply with additional information and I am sure I can help you further.Looking forward to your reply.

Dishlex global 300 dishwasher, eco light flashing sounds like pump noise but not working


Try taking the dishwasher out of its wall space and tipping it back and forth. Apparently the weight of water gathering in some component triggers the 'eco' function. Failing that, last time it happened to my dishwasher i waited a week for the repair guy to arrive, by which time the water had evaporated and there was no longer a problem..
