Pump motor runs continuously, ''Eco'' flashes continuously

I have a 5 year old + Dishlex ''Eco'' Global 300 dishwasher. During the last cycle ''Eco'' was continuously flashing with the pump motor running continuously.

The manual says for this problem ''incorrect fill level or fill time'' - Contact service division.

Can this be fixed wihout contacting a service division?

    I needed to dry out the overflow tray on the bottom of the dishwater and ensure that the float was reset so that it was again on the bottom of the tray.



    Note: Unit disconnected from the powerpoint first. Overflow tray located behind the metal access panel under the door behind the kick panel.

Hi,

The symptoms on a Dishlex Global 300 dishwasher:
  • eco light is flashing constantly;
  • noise on pump running continuously;
  • but the unit will not operate.
Possible corrective actions include:
  • water level - pls check incoming water pressure, filter, water level sensor, water valve;
  • base/bottom overflow sensor - there is a float switch in the base of the machine inside a small plastic dish. Behind the kick panel, access through a metal lid/panel/cover secured by 2 small screws. Dry completely the area;
  • Air/dry/ventilate the unit/system for a couple of days;
  • reduce incoming water pressure.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Our Dishlex Global 300 appears to be stuck in Pre-wash. The Eco light is flashing and the water has drained. All other buttons are unresponsive. I have just replaced the seals and handle assembly.


If your getting 120 volts to your dishwasher, I would first ohm out your thermal fuse for continuity, turn your breaker OFF to your dishwasher first.

Dishlex global 300 dishwasher, eco light flashing sounds like pump noise but not working


Try taking the dishwasher out of its wall space and tipping it back and forth. Apparently the weight of water gathering in some component triggers the 'eco' function. Failing that, last time it happened to my dishwasher i waited a week for the repair guy to arrive, by which time the water had evaporated and there was no longer a problem..

Dishlex dishwasher global 300. Dishwasher continues to drain with ECO light flashing. Service manual says it is due to an incorrect fill level or fill line.


Some diswashers have a sump in the bottom with a float switch. If the water level overflows the float will activate the switch which will kill the machine and run the drain pump continuously.
