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).
6. REMOVE THE DRAIN VALVE -

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
off.)
The other is held on by a spring band type fastener.
(Just compress the ends together with pliers and slide off.
7. SEPARATE THE DRAIN VALVE-
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
PIECES TO THIS HOUSING.

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.

GOOD LUCK!

Hello Jason Johnson - 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 a professional to check the wiring between the main control board and drain valve.

SOURCE: have a trouble: dish-washer will not drain.

I just moved into a new house and builder had provided a dish washer drain just below my kitchen drain line.

DIsh washer install was done by me, every thing worked out OK except dish washer would not drain after a wash cycle.

Cause: drain provided by builder was blocked and needed a circular small cut before mounting drain hose over it.

SOURCE: error code 01 on elecrolux dishwasher EIDW6305GSI

Usually the error code 01 means you backed up water in the unit. First be sure that the drain is clear.  Run the garbage disposal and be sure your sinks are draining.

I got lucky on a EIDW6105 unit by trying this.

All the lights are flashing and it shows error code 01.

Push down on two of the buttons and hold (I pushed on the Favorite and Heavy buttons), until the flashing stops (about 8 seconds).

The machine now showed and error code 08.  Then hit the start button.  My washer then cleared and runs normally.

Hope this helps, better than a sevice call to clear the code.

SOURCE: Dishwasher full of water

Check all areas stated below to address this issue.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer/Control
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

SOURCE: electrolux wt 30 draining problem

Hi,
It sounds like either there is a kink in the drain hose, is very blocked with gunge, or the pump is not doing it's job.
Taking the pump apart may reveal damaged rotors, debris, or if ok, the run capacitor may need replacing.
Read up on AC motors and run capacitors before going looking for it.

SOURCE: Electrolux dishwasher won't drain. Not a clog in

The drain hose on a washing machinemag-glass_10x10.gif connects the drain pump to a stand pipe, a U-pipe under the sink, or another place for draining dirty water into the sewer. If your washer won't drain properly, the problem is sometimes an object blocking the drain hose, like a pair of underpants, a child's sock, or pieces of something that broke up in the washer.

  1. Unplug the washer and put the plug on top of the machine to keep it out of any spilled water.
  2. Step 2 Take any wet clothes out of the washer and bail the water out of the drum with the bucket. The washer may be too heavy to move if it's full of water and wet clothing.
  3. Step 3 Pull the washer out from the wall enough for you to get behind it.
  4. Step 4 Remove the plate from the back of the washer by taking out all the screws. Different brands and models of washers vary in how many screws hold on the back plate, and not all models require removing the plate to get to the pump where the hose is attached.
  5. Step 5 Locate the drain hose. Of the three hoses coming out of the back of the washer, the drain hose is the largest in diameter and is attached to a drain pipe instead of a faucet.
  6. Step 6 Check the drain hose for kinks and bends. These are often the cause of a blocked or slow-running drain hose.
  7. Step 7 Remove the drain hose from the washer by detaching it from the drain pump. You will need a screwdriver or a slide-lock wrench to open the clasp that holds the hose to the pump, depending on what type of clasp it is.
  8. Step 8 Keep the bucket nearby to catch any water that comes out of the drain pump when you remove the hose.
  9. Step 9 Remove the other end of the house from the pipe it drains into.
  10. Step 10 Bend the clothes hanger open so you can use it to poke inside the hose. Push or pull out the material that's causing the blockage.
  11. Step 11 Replace the hose and run the washer to check if it's clear.

My Electrolux semi integrated dishwasher shows error code i20, with the drain pump continuously running


You have a blockage so all the water is no leaving and causing the pump to continue to run.
Ill give you the directions now and you can make up your own mind on whether or not your up for the task. okay,
Disconnect the drain hose and inlet hose from underneath the sink and unplug the dishwasher power cord.
Wind down the front legs and undo any screws around the trim panel securing the dishwasher to the cabinet (If fitted*) and then pull the dishwasher forward out of the cabinet.
Once you get the machine out, you can then follow the drain hose up into the base of the machine to the drain pump where it can be removed and you can then check to see if anything is blocking the drainage system of the dishwasher,
If nothing is found there, look at the hose side which feeds the drain pump, is there any blockage there also?
If possible, get a multi meter and test the drain pump to see if it has continuity etc,,
It can be removed and a voltage applied direct to test its operation etc,, but if you haven't done this before, maybe it is best left to a technician? Plus you need a multimeter.

What do i do to fix error code OE on my LG dishwasher


Based on what it mentioned on the LG website it is an error indicating a drainage error. The solution might be to clean the drain filters at the base, check drain hose under kitchen sink and behind dishwasher for kinks or blockages. On make sure the kitchen sink drain is not blocked. Worst scenario is a clogged drain pump. you will have to provide the model number for any further analysis.

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 professional series not pumping water


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

Dishwsher wont drain. never happened before. do not use dishwasher very often.


I would first check where the drain hose from the dishwasher connects to the drain stub under the sink. Remove the hose from under the sink and place it into a bucket. Close the dishwasher door and cancel the cycle to put the dishwasher in a drain cycle. Listen for the drain pump to activate. If water comes out of the hose check the stub where the hose connects under the sink with a screw driver to make sure the spout is clear of debris. If no water comes out of the hose, empty the dishwasher by hand using a plastic cup and when empty remove the hose at the pump under the dishwasher and check to see if there is any debris at this point. Make sure hose is clear from the dishwasher pump to the drain stub under the sink. You will need to place a towel or two on the floor as water left in the bottom of the dishwasher will come out when you remove the hoses. If still no water comes out you may have to disassemble the bump assembly. Not knowing what make and model you have I can't help you past this point.
I hope this is of some help.

Electrolux dishwasher shows code 10 not filling fault and code 20 not draining fault but when running you are able to hear it filling and draining. Whats the problem.?


I had the same issue (Electrolux ESF 6251). I had both error codes 10 and 30. I found that the short hose connecting the inlet valve (solenoid) to the tank was cracked. That explained error code 30, but even after replacing the hose I still got error code 10. I checked water supply and also drain hose and filters. I realized that I had recently tried to flush out lime scale and suspect that the drain or pump had lines could have clogged up. I tried pumping into the floor drain inside the dishwasher (removed the filter cartridge and screen) simply with a suction cup like you use in the kitchen sink. Voila. Now it works again...

Excess water left in the dishwasher, water not draining. I have checked all pipes and checked all filters which appear ok


  • Check sink drain and drain hose for restrictions . The drain hose can cause the dishwasher to fail to drain properly. The recirculation hose can be responsible for problems with poor rinsing of dishes.
  • To access the drain hose remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
    The drain hose connects to the pump and runs to the sink drain (or to the air gap on top of the sink). The pump has a second hose that recirculates the water back into the dishwasher. The drain hose is roughly 1 1/2 inches in diameter. While inspecting the drain hose, check the recirculation hose as well.
    If checking for leaks, feel the hoses where they connect to the pump, for wetness and check the ground right under the connections. If they are wet, it may be a loose or improperly mounted clamp, a damaged pump housing or a leak in the hose itself.
    If checking for blockages, disconnect the drain hose from the pump, pinch the wire clamp with pliers and slide it up the hose. Place a shallow pan beneath the pump to catch any spillage. Remove the hose from the pump; wiggling the hose may help to loosen it.
    Check the hose and nipple to the pump for any debris. The only way to be certain the drain hose is completely clear is to disconnect it from the sink and run water through (such as spraying a garden hose through it at full pressure). Disconnect the recirculation hose and check it in the same way.
  • Unjam the motor
  • Unjam the pump
  • Check the drain valve
  • Check the drive belt
  • Test the timer motor
  • If you have a brand new dishwasher or garbage disposer, check the knock out plug on the garbage disposer.

HI i have an electrolux dishlex dishwsher that is brand new and just installed. Ive used it a few times an dhave noticed that there is water at the bottom of the dishwasher, thats not draining, I thin


there is always a little water in all dishwashers. Sounds like to me that you may have a kinked drain hose or maybe the way you have hooked the drain up. The drain hose should go to a vacuum break that is mounted on the sink flange and then another hose goes to the disposal. If you have the hose hooked directly to the disposal you may be getting water back from the sink to the dw. raise the hose up as high as possible and attach under the sink so there is a high loop in your hose so water cannot drain back from the sink
