Dx 302 wont dry dishes


The model you specified is unknown to me and I'll try to explain how drying works generally in the dishwasher.
Dishes absorbs heat and cools more slowly than a very thin wall of stainless steel.
The consequence is that water evaporates and in accordance with the Mollier diagram begins to condense on the walls of the stainless steel whose temperature is lower due to faster cooling of the dishes.
Now drying can be divided into two categories. Active and passive.
Passive way of drying the natural circulation of moist air and condensation in the condenser, which is usually located on the left or right side of the dishwasher.
Active way of drying works on the principle of forced circulation humid air with fun helping quickly condenses and thus speeds up the drying of dishes.
In passive mode the drying process can speed up the partial opening of the door.

Dishes still wet upon end of cycle


Check if the heater is working. This can be done by checking if the dishwasher has steam and dishes are warm when cycle is complete. Also check if the Rinse aid has not finished. Make sure the Rinse aid dosage is not at too low.

Try and remove power for few hours so that the processor resets, check if there is fault in the door switch as the error had come in, check for good pressure at the inlet, and possibility of any fault in the pump. It is best to take a full view of the functioning of the units to ensure that there are no errrors that feed back. Clean and reset.

Not drying dishes


The fact that it does not work on all three settings suggests it's something common to all three. Sounds like perhaps your immersion heater is bad or even worse, some contacts or relay in the control circuitry of the drying cycle. To check the immersion heater will require you to pull out the washer from under the counter & to remove power from the appliance. Looking underneath the unit, remove a power lead from one side of the heater unit. Next, turn a volt/ohm meter to the highest ohms setting, turn it on, and touch the two leads together to make sure it's working. It should show zero no matter what ohms setting you have selected. Next touch each lead to each of two posts on the heater unit. It should show some resistance other than zero if it is good. If still zero, you will need to get a replacement heater from your fav local appliance store or go on-line and order it. Either way, make sure they have the full identification of your washer make/model. Let me know results?

Dishlex dx 403 does not dry dishes - fan dry on red led


Ther have been a lot of complaints about the drying performance of these machines. One solution suggested by Electrolux is to use the "anti bacterial" wash mode, as this is a higher temperature wash, therefore dishes dry better. If you are using Eco wash or Quick wash, drying performance is not very good- Electrolux recommend leaving door ajar at end of cycle to improve drying. Also, ensure your Rinse Aid compartment is topped up, as Rinse Aid greatly improves drying performance.
-Please note: these dishwashers will not dry plastics and other items that do not hold the heat very well!!
-Also, you should be able to hear the drying fan running at the end of cycle- if not, then you may have faulty fan (uncommon), or control board (more common).
Good luck!!

Dishlex dx 302 heat drying


Found I had no hot water in my Dishlex DX302 and did a google search and found this page.

My problem was found to be the same as the others; one of the solder joints on the relay on the control board had arced off.
You could see the burn mark on the board and cover where it had been arcing.

Soldered it back together, and now it seems to be going good again.
Now my only problem is a damaged door seal, which means a small water leak; I have used part of a rubber glove to bridge the gap, and it reduces the water leak.
