Dishlex dishwasher has flashing eco light and won't stop draining

I'm sure it has got water into where it isn't meant to be as we were needing to put water in manually (long story). I know this should only need to be drained out somehow but not sure how to correct the problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need to remove the bottom panel under the door, under the machine you will find a small cup on an arm attched to a micro switch this cup is for an over flow ie when the fill setting is incorrect or when the wrong detergent is used ie to many suds empty this cup, thsi should solve your problem

Yes ... lifting this white circular float (about 3" diam.) should stop the 'eco' light flashing (you can hear the micro switch click when it is lifted) and all the programs are selectable again - but what happens after that if the float keeps dropping? I don't know

Hi there, we have had our dishlex 300 dishwasher switched off for a while and today I turned it on. I started a cycle and it stopped after a few minutes and then the Eco button started flashing. I opened...


Hi just read your posting.Now the reason these dishwashers flash ECO is because there is either water in the bottom tray or your drain pump is open circuit.Is the machine making a pumping noise when it is flashing the ECO light,or is it completely silent?Please reply on additional information and I am sure I can help you.Looking forward to your reply.

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.

Hotpoint FDW60 flashing eco light


if the eco light is flashing, this indicates that saftey float switch has activated in the base of the dishwasher usually caused by a leak, a polystyrene float activates a microswitch which cuts of the water inlet supply

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.
