    Hi, Do you have this hooked up to the drain or a garbage disposal? Dis the water totally release at any time or has water always stayed in D/W?
    Just need clarity.

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

I just posted the same problem with our new electrolux Dw last night, Today I pulled the dw out and sure enough the hose had a kink in it. I am running a test wash right now, I am confident the problem will be solved. I will post again if it doesn't do the trick. Thank you to the pros here for the info by the way!

Dishlex 302 leaks from underneath


Good Morning Friend,

This appears to be a UK Electrolux dishwasher; however, if you have a US Electrolux model, here are a few tips you can attempt to troubleshoot the issue: First, Use only fresh detergent designed for automatic dishwashers. Measure detergent carefully. Possibly try a different brand of detergent. Secondly, spilled rinse aid can cause foam and lead to overflowing. Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth. Lastly, check to see if your dishwasher is level. If your dishwasher is still leaking, after trying the above solutions, I suggest contacting the manufacturer for further assistance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

I have a Electrolux Dishlex DX302 and the last few washes I have notice that on the ususal cycle it is not heating (steaming) at the end. The dishes are still coming out half clean. I am not sure why the...


Doubble check the settings on your machine.

It is a long way from my heater to the washer. Hot water is essential to the operation of any model machine. I always get hot water to the sink (by running the hot water, of course) before I start the washer. I can tell when I fail to do this.

Just a thought, I hope this aids your situation.

Of course your washer heater may have failed ... You can check it using a volt/ohm meter.

Thanks for your question this morning @ FixYa.com

Hi, My Dishlex dishwasher DX 302WB ia showing 10


check this

1)blockage in boiler tank.(cleaned)
2)water pressure is less.(check solenoid filter)
if it's programmed in timer mode within the period it must reach the water level in the tank due to this also it may happen.

I have a dx302. its not heating the water or drying.


My six year old Electolux Dishlex DX 403 dishwasher stopped heating the water. I found comments on the internet about burnt out solder joints in the control box. A friend opened the control box and found a blackened area on the back of the circuit board. Once the connection was re-soldered the water heated again. We also found that quite a few wires leading to the control box had overheated and the insulation had melted. Considering that this dishwasher was the top model from Electrolux at the time, I was not impressed. I had previously had a Vulcan Dishlex for almost 20 years.
Thanks to those people who previously posted information about this fault.

Tank is leaking


Is it the tank or just the door seals? Ours was leaking recently, there was an obvious tear in the door seal. Once fixed no probs.
