I have no real experience with float switches on dishwashers, but have with some in humidifiers. It's a piece of styrofoam on a narrow metal stick that lifts when the appliance fills with water & lowers when the water empties. If this gets stuck on something, like a dishwasher rack, the unit won't fill or empty the water & the cycles won't work properly. Take a look & see if there is such a thing hung up somewhere in the dishwasher. If you can loosen it, your dishwasher should work again.
Check that your supply faucet is open, Check if there is a screen in the supply line, these can become blocked due to scale deposits from the mains. If there is no screen check that the inlet solenoid valve has not got blocked. If none of the above help, check that there is power getting to the solenoid valve when the machine is supposed to be on the fill cycle. If no power is betting to the valve, the timer might ba faulty. (You can try hand filling the machine and see if it goes through a cycle, at least up to the rinse stage, this will tell you if the timer control is working).
If you feel that there is water not being pumped out, remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.
if no rinse agent is present it doesnt matter how hot the water gets they will still not dry check unit make sure it is full. rinse agent is only to aid the drying process the machine will wash happily without it but not dry.
Your dishwasher water fill valve is defective. Remove power from the DW. Remove the bottom toe kick panel. The water valve has the incoming water line connected to it.Remove the wires from the valve. If the water stops entering you have a bad timer. If it makes no difference you have a bad valve. The valve is a replaceable part. The timer is a replaceable part.
"Hi - answer I was given by Electrolux Help was: pull machine out from under bench onto old towel, tip GENTLY onto left hand side (your left as you face the front of the machine) after it has drained, stand up gently, put back & turn on. Apparently it is the overflow trough reading as full ('oF' Overflow). Then run through some dishwasher descaler or Finish dishwasher cleaner. Worked for me."
check your connections under the sink. A dishwasher (unless it is a commercial one) is not built to heat water the water is supplied via the water heater via the sink angle stop. The dishwasher does however have a heating element inside used to dry the dishes. I would check the hot water side of the sink where the dishwasher is connected to see if the problem could be in that area. Check your setting on the machine. Good Luck on your repairs
This is possibly the level sensors, which tell the dishwater when to stop filling and when to start washing.
IMPORTANT: AS SOON AS YOU REMOVE ANY OF THE MACHINE CASINGS THERE ARE LIVE SWITCHES AND MAINS SUPPLIES EXPOSED, DO NOT TOUCH OR TAMPER WITH ANY PART, UNLESS THE POWER IS OFF AND THE PLUG REMOVED FROM THE MAINS SOCKET.
You will have to find the water inlet flow path, this is sometimes behind the side casing. Check the water flowing through all the channels (Some machines look quite complicated with loads of thin pipes running in all directions)
Check carefully that all of the pipes and all connections to the pipes are clean and not obstructed. This may solve your problem.
When you run the hot water at the kitchen sink until it is hot and start a cycle on your dishwasher, is water hot when you open the door after it stops filling?
If no, the diswasher is connected to the cold water line, not the hot water line. The water temerature entering should be a minimum of 120 degrees but no hotter than 140 degrees.
If the water going in is hot, but it cools down after each filling then the heating element has failed and needs to be replaced. When the heating element fails, the dishes, especially the glassware will be foggy and still dirty.
Please reply with what you find. Good Luck!
when in the wash phase, listen for a low hum near the wash pump. if you hear this it indicates the wash pump capacitor is faulty or something jammed in the pump.after that you will have to access the wash pump and check if there is any supply to it
