Since they don't make the one you need anymore, you may not be totally out of luck, usually they make one that will still work but call them directly to confirm this. I think the one located at the following website may work on yours but there was no image and no specs to confirm this. You have to love when a company stops making a part that you need.

How do i fix an e2 error on an electrolux dishwasher?


Hey friend, thank you for your inquiry!

The "E2" error code means that thermistor/turbidity sensor has failed. This can be corrected by replacing the turbidity sensor or main control board. I would suggest contacting a professional to come and properly diagnose your appliance to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

I am getting an error 02 code


Good Afternoon Friend, I am happy to assist you!

An error code E02 often implies a faulty issue with the thermistor/turbidity. A qualified technician would pinpoint the problem by checking the wiring between the main control board and thermistor/turbidity. If the wiring isn't the issue, he/she would need to determine whether the problem rests with the main control board or the turbidity sensor. It really could be a hit or miss calculation in parts so I would personally reach out to an experienced tech that will be able to identify the precise reason.

Ok Ok Not so easy to answer. There are two additional functions with your current machine that not all machines are equipped with.
  • Dishwasher Turbidity Sensor
  • Thermistor Sensor
  • Sensor, thermistor and turbidity
This sensor modify s the wash cycle based on water clarity and water temperature.

Not all machines of the same group have these additional features.
Your unit does have these options.

The replacement controller( 807024501) does not have connections for these functions. The controller is basic without these enhancements, I have replaced in a similar situation a full featured controller with a less featured controller with no degradation to the dishwasher performance.

Hope this helps

I must replace the Thermister/Turbidity Module on my Electrolux EIDW6305 Dishwasher. Do you have instructions on the procedure and a diagram of the machine showing the location of the part?


Hi Art.

Here the removal procedure from service manual:

The turbidity sensor-thermistor is located in the front portion of the water collection section of the
sump. This sensor is used by the control to determine the turbidity of the water, then adjust the cycle length as needed, and also to determine water temperature in the dishwasher. An o-ring
seals the sensor from leaking water into the base tray. The thermistor is wired to the electronic control and can be checked at the control for resistance. The thermistor is checked by reading its resistance at room temperature; this will be 10K ohms, if it is checked after a fill, the reading will very depending on water temperature.

To remove the turbidity sensor/ thermistor:
1. Pull unit from its installation position. Lay unit on its back.
2. Remove the base tray.
3. Push back the retaining clip and pull electrical connection from turbidity sensor/ thermistor.(See Figure 5-36)
4. Using a 20 Torx bit, extract the two screws securing the turbidity sensor/ thermistor to th bottom of the sump. Pull sensor from unit.



To remove the base tray:

1 . Tilt unit back to access the screws along the edge of the unit base. If blocking materials are not available, the unit may be set on its back.
2. Using a phillips head screwdriver, extract the two screws securing the base tray to the unit frame.
3. Tilt the front of the base tray away from the unit then push backwards to release the tabs from the locating slots in the rear of the unit.
4.Remove base tray for unit.

I have a maytag dishwasher model mdbtt60awb 07 year. Want to wash a load of dishes it keeps poping over to rinse only


In the bottom of the unit on the LH side (9 o'clock) of the pump / motor there is the turbidity sensor. This sensor is supposed to sense the soil level in the water and determine how many times the dishwasher rinses until there is no more debris in the water. If this OPTICAL (infared) sensor gets covered with food particulate or fails you can have the symptom your describing. Remove the sensor and clean off the eye bu flushing the unit as best you can. Reinstall it and then try it again.

The part number of the sensor is: 99003613 but has been replaced by PN W10120019

Here is yet another PN for the same sensor:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-sensor--turbidity-item-number-ap4114286.aspx

As long as this sensor is telling the control panel the water is dirty it will always rinse.

For an installed position of the sensor see item 11 this link:
http://www.partadvantage.com/lookup/90872/553699

You may have to shop areound for this sensor as it is not a commonly stocked item and has a 7 - 14 day delivery time.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Dishwasher will not fill up with water


check the following- remove the wires from the fill valve.close the door and start the unit.u should read 120 v as u start the unit.if u read 120v then fill valve is bad.if not then chk and make sure the float is sitting completely down and float sw is closed.the power to fill valve goes throug this sw.if all is ok and still there is no power then u may not be getting power from cntrl board and control board could be bad.but that rarely happens.turbidity sensor does not affect the fill operation.good luck.
