Re: hotwater runs continuously
It sounds like a little piece of trash (precipitated solids in the water line) have gotten in the water valve, or, the fill switch has failed.
If you know how to use a voltmeter, then see if there is voltage always applied to the water solenoid. If not, the water solenoid valve is bad. If it does have voltage all the time (when it's not supposed to be filling) then it's the fill switch.

I see that you are having trouble with the pump continuously running on your Electrolux dishwasher, model number ESL6114. From this model number, I am showing that this is a European model and questions would need to be directed to the manufacturer in that specific country. I could possibly find a number for you if I can kindly give me the country you live in or the country where your dishwasher was manufactured or purchased. Looking forward to hearing from you.
there is a water level sensor in the bottom of the machine if this is faulty and stays on, this will indicate to the pump there is water still in the machine. I would check this sensor it might be blocked with debris and has blocked in the closed position. that woudl be the best start for this issue.
Flashing lights, pump running even when turned off. Had to switch off at the socket. The vibration from the machine had managed to give a quarter turn to the appliance gate valve, the type with the little blue handle. I could see the indentation in the rear rubber panel on the back of the dishwasher. Unscrewed the little blue handle, pushed the machine back in and started working as normal. :)
This depends what you mean by "runs". If the dishwasher continues with a wash cycle - i.e. circulating water - with the door open, the simple answer is that you have a defective door microswitch.
However, I suspect what you perceive to be the dishwasher running, is actually the drain pump running continuously. This happens when the anti-flood protection system has been activated and continues even when the door is opened. The simplest way to check is to open the door (while it's "running") and pour some water into the tub. If the water drains away immediately, this shows the drain pump is running and the anti-flood protection has been activated.
This may be due to water having leaked into the base of the dishwasher, but it could be as simple as a stuck or defective float-switch.
Please try the simple test above then post back for further assistance. If you're planning to investigate or repair this yourself, you're going to need a Torx T20 screwdriver and a multi-meter would be useful as well.
sounds like you may not be getting enough water.it will stop if water is in short supply.this may be if you are running washer at the same time.or running a bath.if hot water is in short supply,this maybe a hotwater heater problem.have you been running out of hot water when showering or bathing?
