Hi... I just bought Electrolux Dishwasher ESF2433W. When i first time turn it on, light at "Normal" button keep on flashing with beeping sound. After checking the trouble shooting manual, it actually refer...

E4 Overflow

Sometimes during trasport it is possible that styrofoam float mechanicaly activated overflow microswitch. So, you should check complitely overflow system.

At any time, if overflow micro-switch act and keep for longer than 2 seconds, the E4 would occur. When E4 occurs, the drain pump will run until flowmeter keep motionless for 2 minutes (if the model with the pressure switch (83/63),drain pump would run till the pressure switch reset and continue draining for 60 seconds.) and all the other components will be stopped immediately. At the same time, the buzzer will alarm for 30 seconds and error 4 will be shown. Note: Priority level of E4 is the highest. E4 operation is valid after other error operations have done. When E4 operation has done, all the others are invalid.

Hotpoint Built-In Dishwasher HDA3600DWWmy dish

there is an electronic solenoid near where the drainhose connects to the sump that changes the waterflow direction from recirculate(washing), to evacuate (draining). this is electronically controlled by the timer. you can test the power leads at the solenoid for voltage when it sould be draining. if none then the timer is faulty. if there is voltage then the solenoid is faulty. if the solenoid is engageing, then the water diverter is faulty. if the water diverter is broken, replace the dishwasher.
overflowing is another problem of its own. the water level float/ sensor is not working and could be caked with detergent. work the float from the inside of the dishwasher, it should move freely. if so, then there is a switch connected to the float on the underside. test it with an ohmmeter. if bad replace it. if it is an electronically timed water level control then it could be a problem with the timer as well, but with hotpoint they are usually manual.

I have a Candy dishwasher. Door is open switch on sounds like something (possibly pump) is running and error E4 shown on diaplay. Any ideas please?

Overflow tray (bottom dishwasher). Tilt your dishwasher, pour water and see the reason for the overflow. I blew off the top hose from the pump.

Danby Dishwasher stuck in drain cycle after wrong soap use

There might be water in the overflow sensor. I unloaded the dishwasher and lifted the front so the dishwasher rested on its back. There's a narrow gray tube that runs down from the bottom right of the door. The tube runs into a white piece of plastic with some wires coming out of it. There is a rubber plug that covers a nipple on the plastic. Pull the rubber plug off. Mine was quite tight. Tip the dishwasher back onto its casters to drain the water from the overflow. Check to see if the dishwasher functions normally, then put the rubber plug back on.

Dishwasher won't power off

Howdy. Flashing light on the switch, shows a glass? At any rate your overflow protection switch is activated. Probable cause; plugged or defective exhaust hose that does not allow pumping to go faster than water coming in, too high a water level. Clean the entire system first!
Is your exhaust hose going up to about threequarters as high as the machine? You must have this uphill twist and turn in the drain system.
A little water remains in the sensor and it thinks you are flooded. Force air through the pump in the floor until all is clear, a clean plumber's helper is ideal. Keep doing this until you get the last bit of water out of the sensor. When you get it running watch the machine (First time) carefully. You do not want a flood, that's why Asko put this safety device in place.

Won't let water in.

If your pump is running, you probably have water in the overflow area so it won't let more come in. You need to pry off the plastic cover that is just below the door. We unscrewed it while following manual instructions, but found that it actually pops off without unscrewing anything. Under there you will find a rubber or plastic cover on the overflow area. Remove it, drain the water into a container and then put the covers back on. The dishwasher should work now.
