Hi,
Yes I had the same problem with the DX302. One of the solder joints on the relay was cracked but hardly visable. Resoldered it and no problems.
How to do it:
Make sure you turn off the power at the wall and pull out the plug. To get to the circuit board remove the screws on the inside top of the door and pull out the front panel (where the buttons are). Press the little clips and the white box containing the circuit board comes free. Remove all the plugs and lever open the small clips holding the box shut. After you open the box pull the circuit board up and have a look at the contacts under the black little box (relay). Use a soldering iron and some flux cored solder and redo the joints. Put it all back together and turn on to see how it goes.
Worked for me.
All the best......

Why does my dishlex dishwasher DX302 not heat


Dishwashers require a gap for air flow all the way around, not tight fit.
If it works when out but not installed, check the water pipe is not kinked and the door switch is working properly.

Dishlex 302 water not heating


My son fixed this problem with our DX302 dishwasher only this morning. Now works fine and hot. Found the solution on this site posted 11 august 2008 from dishwasher dishlex dx302wb no hot water. There are photos to help you. Take out the circuit board in the top of door and resolder the points on left hand side of green board there are 2 long solders and a half moon. The problem is at the top of the 2 long solder lines. Do not replace your element. There is a fault with the circuit boards on this model 302. I want to thank all the posters for helping me fix my no hot water problem.

Water doesn't heat up


The most common reason for no heating is the failure of the heating element which is located beneath the lower spray arm. Inspecting it for breaks and damage would be the first step. If you do not see obvious damage, after triple checking that poser is off to the DW, pull the kick panel from your DW and check where the heavy gauge wires connect to the two terminals of the heating element.

Please post back here with further questions or what you found, OK?

No heating in dishwasher


Do not plug it into hot water UNPLUG. It needs cold water going through the system.

It may be the heating element or just a loose connection on the computer panel.

If you have any Questions plese do not hesitate to ask
