Hello Loucinda Stanley - Try resetting the dishwasher by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. Select a normal cycle let it run and then the indicator light should display at the end of the cycle. If it proves to be ineffective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.

SOURCE: electrolux dishwasher all lights blinking and wont

Remove the toe kick by loosening 2 screws. There is a panel there with little lights that correspond to specific problems. The light that is on will correspond to the problem that the dishwasher has detected. Correct the problem and you should be good to go. I have no idea why this is not in the instruction manual. A common one is that there us a leak that the dishwasher has detected, normally in the drain pipe.

SOURCE: How do I get the Electrolux dishwasher to dry the dishes?

Hello, I've got a suggestion and at first it may sound like I'm pulling it out of my...left field. I'll tell you the what and then I'll explain why. Try this, take a rag or paper towel and soak it with "rinse aid" AKA, "jet dry" and apply it to the top of the tub and to a lesser degree the sides as well. I suggest this to all my customer's with new dishwasher's. Now the why...all dishwasher's require assistance to dry your dishes, some more than other's. Hence the need for an additive such as jet dry, it is simply a wetting agent which help's the water run off the dishes and as a result they dry better. So why put it on the tub ? Glad you asked. The reason is exactly the same, on older dishwasher's that have had many year's of use the tub has already built up some wetting agent on the tub just by normal and continued use, the new obviously has not. The only jet dry the new one has is the added amount in the dispenser. Over a short time of regular use the unit would start to dry better on it's own, this just speed's up the process. By adding the jet dry to the tub you create a seathing action allowing water to run off before & during the dry cycle as to not have water in the form of condensation dripping back onto the dishes when the cycle is complete, which leaves you with dry dishes as opposed to wet dishes. Make sense ? I hope so, it really work's. Hope you found this helpful. If so please rate the info you received frome jere at "fixya" today and good luck. Let me know if I can assist you further. I hope you didn't find this too difficult to read, I had to use my iphone, it's the only internet connection I have at the moment. Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: Hi i have a Electrolux

This can be a possible fault with the program controller unit. You will need to observe and make some tests as the washer works and stops. So check with all precaution if you are able to use a multimeter.
check the voltage on the motor while agitating. now does it cut off - if so the program controller is faulty , However If the voltage stays but the motor stops then the motor is faulty , the capacitor reduced in value or the mechanical section of the agitator/shaft can be jammed.
Check the program controller, check all connections , remove clean and set. check the door switch.

The light that indicates the dishes are clean will not go off


I have had nothing but problems with Electrolux appliances, the dishwasher especially. Have you tried disconnecting power at the fuse box? You should be able to set back to factory reset by pressing the two buttons (about 1" apart just left of the far right, you may have to try pressing a few positions for a few seconds each spot along the pad and it will beep and "welcome" you again - that should reset it, unless there is an issue with your main board, in which case you will have to get it serviced.) Mine is no longer under warranty so none of the recent problems will be fixed, and many of the original problems are back after being serviced. I would never buy another Electrolux product ever again!

Electrolux EIDW6305GS1 will not run , keeps flashing error code 11 which indicates drain valve problem. I have replaced drain valve, wash pump, float valve and reed switch but no luck, still flashin


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.

Dishlex dx 403 does not dry dishes - fan dry on red led


Ther have been a lot of complaints about the drying performance of these machines. One solution suggested by Electrolux is to use the "anti bacterial" wash mode, as this is a higher temperature wash, therefore dishes dry better. If you are using Eco wash or Quick wash, drying performance is not very good- Electrolux recommend leaving door ajar at end of cycle to improve drying. Also, ensure your Rinse Aid compartment is topped up, as Rinse Aid greatly improves drying performance.
-Please note: these dishwashers will not dry plastics and other items that do not hold the heat very well!!
-Also, you should be able to hear the drying fan running at the end of cycle- if not, then you may have faulty fan (uncommon), or control board (more common).
Good luck!!

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.
