Question about Electrolux EDW5505SS Dishwasher

Open Question

The button will not engage

I have an EDW 5505 ESSO Electrolux icon dishwasher. For a few weeks now, I have only been able to push the normal button, not the short, heavy or auto button. Now nothing will work!!!!

Please advise. This unit is only 1 1/2 years old.

One cause can be if the seal failed and allowed some watter to get into the motor bearings. Look to see if this might have occured. The other thing is if debris got into the pump impellers and cannot clear. This can tear up the impellers.

Normal wash light is blinking but, won't start


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

From the information you have provided regarding the heated dry and washing lights blinking on your Electrolux dishwasher it sounds like it could be a possible problem within your control board. I would recommend resetting your appliance which you can by flipping the household circuit breaker in the off position for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to receive the blinking lights I would reach out to a professional to come and diagnose your appliance. I hope this helps. -Matt

ICON DISHWASHER


Check and make sure the Air Dry button is not engaged. Check the clean out at the bottom. When you push the top rack in insure it is hitting the opening in the back. Finally purchase some Lemi Shine Machine cleaner for the smell, it's likely you have a some stuff lurking in the screens causing the smell, this made my Icon dishwasher work like new.

Electrolux dishwasher not completing wash cycle and all lights flashing on door control panel and the 'wash pump' error light behind the lower kick space panel was flashing.


Good Morning friend, thanks for your post!

After researching the issue you are having with your Electrolux dishwasher it is possible that resetting your appliance may help. I would disconnect power from your dishwasher by unplugging it or flipping the household breaker for roughly ten minutes. If this does not resolve your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional to properly diagnose and repair your dishwasher. -T

Electrolux dishwasher in locked mode


Good Afternoon David - When the light is on, the control is locked and no cycles can be selected or started. To de-select the Control Lock, press and hold the heat dry key or press down on the lock icon for approximately twenty seconds. If issue persists, you may reset the dishwasher by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the unit back on. The dishwasher should resume to normal operations.

Electrolux 5505 dishwasher will not come on - no lights, nothing


Hello Kathy Prussack - I understand you said there are no lights on, however try unplugging the unit or flipping the household breaker off for two minutes to reset. Is there power to the unit? I suggest touching each button individually on keypad, does any lights turn on or does display change? If not, I would recommend contacting a professional because the unit may possibly have a defective keypad.

It is likely the door switch is not engaging properly. Check the gasket is set properly and the door is closing when you shut it. Also confirm if it is not on delay start.

Dishlex dx302 keeps beeping after every 2-5mins of operating..i hold down the start button for a few seconds then push the programme button and it starts operating again for only a few minutes


I had this problem, also. I just persisted with it for a week (re-initiating the start) & eventually it came good. Was very frustrating for a while. Your post was over two months ago; did it spontaneously resolve for you?
