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).

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
The other is held on by a spring band type fastener.
(Just compress the ends together with pliers and slide off.
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

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.

Hello Gene Skates - 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. This is typically not a DIY job and strongly recommend contacting a professional to check the wiring between the main control board and drain valve since you have already replaced the drain valve.

SOURCE: electrolux Dishwasher 24 " not

if i was at your home as a repairman this is what i would do.if your water pressure was good at the kitchen sink,i would turn water off to dishwasher undo water connection at the fill valve,and place water line in a bucket and turn on water.if ok and still not getting water then prob with fill valve.soooo you have a new valve,did you check the water pressure to the valve? if yes good because then you also flushed out that in coming water line.because[and i have done this a few times]if not flushed their could have been minerals setting in that supply line so when you turn the water back on it pushes that stuff into the new water valve screen and blocks it up also.if your getting water then its trying to do its job,it just cant get enough water and the timer times out so no more voltage to the water valve.thats a lot said but there no mystery to it.the timer allows for lets say a 70 sec fill at 40 lbs water presure ,seventy seconds up that's it .the float only stops it from flooding,too much dose not tell the machine that there is not enough! so because its letting in some water that tells me the float switch is closed[and it should be]leting the voltage to the water valve.the water valve has to let in enough water then.i know i mixed up words a bit but i hope this helps you understand whats happening.God bless ,if you need more advice you can email thru FixYa tom

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 Inspire 7 kg washing machine. Error code 22. A program run for 30 minutes Ok and the stop and reset the program. What means e22 and how can be solved? Thanks in andvance!

Hello Serban Alexandru - Typically error code E22 indicates that the water is not pumping out fast enough. Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, there may be a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Otherwise since it is such a complex unit I would recommend contacting a professional to have the pump, timer or main control board diagnose.

I have an error 04 showing on my dishwasher, and the cycle will not run. Please help!

dryer damper problem. there is another post that will help from electrolux personnel.
Thank you in advance for allowing Electrolux to assist you in
this matter.

I apologize for the inconvenience and concerns this dishwasher unit has been causing you. Unfortunately the error "E04" code does indicate an issue with the drying damper. Now this is something that a technician would have to assess because wiring is needed to be checked.

Check wiring between Main Control Board and upper fan. If correct, replace upper fan.

If your unit is brand new it is covered under warranty and you can choose to contact your dealer for a repair technician, or visit to find a listing in your area.

My washer is a whirlpool front loader. It keeps

F/02 Long Drain
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
  • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
  • If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

The code keeps flashing F 2 on my HE3 elite washer. It will not complete the cycle it keeps stopping then flashing F 2 and beeping?

"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that you have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. In most cases this means there is something lodged in the drain pump or inlet line running from the wash tub to the pump. There is a white screw off cap on the drain pump that you can remove to inspect the pump impeller and clean. The following link explains:

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris and small articles of clothing can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: The "SUD" error code can often occur in conjunction with the "F02" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error should go away.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

F 02 code is flashing

F02 indicates "Long Drain"

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
• Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
• Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects
• If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump
