Question about Electrolux 24 in. EDW5505EPS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

My Electrlux dishwasher keeps dying.

I bought a electrolux diswasher about a year ago. When it was delivered it was DOA. I was sent a new one and 3 months later I couldn't get any electronic display on the door panel, the unit was totally dead. The repairman replaced the door. It's been another 7 months and the same problem has reared it's ugly head.Is this a common problem with these dishwashers or is the problem something other than the door? I don't know the model number because I am at work. I know I paid over $1000 for it.

Alot of times you may look at the dishwasher for the problem but i would have started with the power source from the home. always make sure you are getting 120v from your lines.there is a plug in tool that you can check to see if there is a problem with your electrical. a good electrical supply company has them. tell them you want to check the polarity,at the outlet. Start there first then let me know.

Electrolux 24 in. Diswasher

Hello Darlene, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

The "ER" code that keeps appearing on your Electrolux dishwasher stands for a Membrane Switch Failure. Normally that means that your control board has detected a stuck key or key pressed for more than a minute. That could possibly be an issue with your keypad or main control board. I would recommend having a technician come out to your home to properly diagnose and repair your dishwasher. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

My Electrolux Diswasher Model EIDW5705PS is stuck in Loc mode

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EIDW5705PS, keeps getting stuck in LOC mode. I also see that you are looking for another way to reset it, other than having to uninstall it. First, I suggest trying to unlock your appliance by pressing and holding down the "Air Dry" button for 3-5 seconds. If that doesn't work, I suggest resetting your appliance, by shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Restore power and try any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Error code 01 keeps coming up and will not let dishwasher complete its cycle. My dishwasher no. is ewdw6505gso and it is only 3 years old. I have 2 other appliances that are Electrolux. Please help.

Mine was only a few months old when error 01 arrived - it is a leak. The Electrolux dishwashers have a leak detector at the bottom inside the plastic pan, that when water appears it sets off the code and you cannot restart the dishwasher until you dry the pan out (tip the unit forward and water will come out) but it will keep on doing it unless you repair it - mine was covered under warranty and they replaced a lot of parts at the bottom. Not even a year later it leaked again, but not as bad. I took it apart and removed a fabric pad that sits in the bottom of the pan, it does not go off that much any more since the water evaporates before it does any damage. I think this feature is completely useless - I would rather see a wet spot on the floor than not be able to do dishes... If you got 3 years you are doing well. I will just replace my appliances as they die and never buy Electrolux ever again! PS if a refrigerator is one of your other units, be aware that their main boards can fail and are very expensive to replace. You will know it is blown when your food freezes in the lower compartment and your lights come on instantly instead of glowing up slowly.

Once dishwasher starts wash cyle, it keeps running wash cyle indefinitely. what do i need to do

Possible that the diswasher control panel is not in order and is a suspect. remove power for some to reset the board. Try with different program and if the same action continues check with the panel board before you can think of swapping to confirm the case.
