Just looking at that model on the Electrolux site and the wash pump would cost $167.73,and the manifold pipe would be about $25.I dont know what they mean by feeder pipe.but you have the hose to the machine cost $34.60 or the hose down by the pump which would cost $20.50.I would be inclined to get a second opinion or source the parts yourself.The fault on these machines normally was that the rigid plastic water feed manifold pipe would tend to split on the thread just inside the corner of the unit and water would run down onto the heater and the pump.Normally after replacing the pipe and drying out the electrics the machine would be ok again.

Hope this helps.

I have same problem and was told by a helpful repairman that there is a design fault in this machine. When you push the top tray back into the machine, it bangs against the inlet pipe which eventually breaks, floods the bottom of the machine and shorts out the heater. He has quit the Electrolux contract because he is so fed up with owners getting angry about continual problems. I am trying to get a free new machine on the grounds that the design fault renders it unfit for purpose under the Sale of Goods Acts.

Replaced fuel pump van carnks no start,2003 chevy venture

first verify fuel pressure (you should hear your pump run momentarily when turning on key) and spark,

if still no fuel pressure or pump operation check the harness from the fuel tank to the van floor for water intrusion and corrosion, it exits just behind drivers' seat straight through floor and a leaking windshield or blocked a/c drain will send water right into this area.

if no spark and no codes, be aware these series vehicles have a crank sensor in the backside of the engine that has a two wire harness goes from sensor to the ignition coil pack control module and passes through a gap near the egr pipe and exhaust manifold, this harness is prone to heat damage and shorting out, resulting in a no spark condition. this harness can be found coming out of the rear of the coil pack and running down by itself, wires are twisted together to eliminate interference. it can be completely removed but is in a tight area between engine and firewall.

How do i replace a wash pump in electrolux dishwasher ewdw6505g80

Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I understand that your want to replace the pump inside of your Electrolux dishwasher. From my understanding an "E3" error code is an issue with your wash motor. It could be a problem with the wash motor, wash motor hall sensor, or control panel. In any case these intricate parts do require precision and patience, therefore when replacing the exchange of electrical components or removing them from your appliance, I always suggest seeking professional assistance. One must be very careful as these replacements can lead to potential harm. -Chris

Fuel pump fuse keeps shorting out

Yes I would suggest that the fuel pump and the fuel pump electrical connector at the fuel tank should both be replaced. Solder the repair connector on, never reuse the old connector. In order to replace the pump you must remove the fuel tank from the car, you need a good floor jack and safety stands to support the car. To remove support the fuel tank with the floor jack and remove the steel straps that hold it is and then disconnect all Ines and electrical connectors and rubber vent hoses as well as the filler neck from the gas cap.

Dishlex dx303 error message 50

Our Electrolux DX303 had an i50 error. It was due to a water leak causing earth leakage current. So it's good it stops working if it detects a leak.

Our leak was from where the water goes to the upper arm (the pipe is made of plastic and has a plastic thread which isn't strong ie cheap). The pipe is located on the back right hand side once you take off the panels.

I am after a manual for the electrolux dishlex dx303. thanks for the help.

Hi I am Kelly.
This is not the exact manual but maybe it will help. (DX301)

I searched for sometime and did not find a single DX303 manual on-line.

If this was not helpful just don't rate the post and maybe another expert just by chance happens to have a copy of the manual and can direct you to a link for the manual.
I just recall looking for this exact manual several times for other askers without success. I know for a fact I have lost over 3 hours searching for the manual your seeking. It just does not seem to be anywhere other than with the retailers in the stores... (you might ask for a copy)

Water leaking periodically (1x per week) from bottom of refigerator. Water clean and spreads on the floor about 1 to 1.5 feet in diameter.

drain pan underneath needs to be emptied. it should slide out but you may want to check for screws or bolts.

I have an Electrolux Dishlex DX303 Dishwasher. Recently it has been stopping early in the cycle and the display shows -10. The selected program is flashing. The cycle will restart by pressing the program...

hi peter, according to manual book -10 is not filling water fast enough. check inlet hose and valve, check pressure switch and pressure SW hose and clean sump filter which located bottom of tub that plastic strainer and stainless mesh clean them spotless. sometimes caused by this filter block the water passage and change pressure sw's leadings. and clean sump as well. b4 suspect PCB this filter cause many problem like not heating water, doesn't keep water. if dirty filter is the one you will save at least $300- for service man to come out and change the PCB for nothing. I think clean the filter doesn't hurt anyone.

there are 3 bolts are bottom front compartment, may be taken off with a phillip screwdriver, or it may be a torx. when you take it off, cut your washer on and see where it is leaking, your gasket could be broken, your hoses or pump.
