Sale of fire-risk dishwashers banned 5:00AM Thursday July 24, 2008
New South Wales last night banned the sale of dishwasher brands fromAustralia's largest whitegoods supplier after the faulty machines werelinked to a string of home fires.
More than 26,000 Electrolux,Electrolux Dishlex and Westinghouse dishwashers sold in Australia andNew Zealand since April last year have a potential wiring fault.
TheNSW Fair Trading Minister, Linda Burney, said her department had beenalerted to 73 incidents involving the appliances, resulting inexcessive heat and kitchen fires.
Electrolux identified a fault with the dishwashers last year and has issued three appeals to consumers.
"Despitethis, Fair Trading has received reports that fires or incidentscontinue to occur," Ms Burney said. Up to 5000 of the dishwashersremain in households unchecked.
The minister said a wire connector within the appliances could cause plastic components to melt in the control panel.
The largest number of faulty washers are in NSW.
The state Commissioner of Fair Trading has moved to ban NSW retailers from selling their remaining stock of the appliances.
"The prohibition will ensure that any dishwashers not alreadyquarantined by Electrolux, which may be in retail outlets and not inthe possession of Electrolux, are not sold," Ms Burney said.
Theban and the recalls cover Electrolux, Electrolux Dishlex andWestinghouse washers with serial numbers ranging from 70700000 to72400000.
The NSW Government said consumers with one of thesemodels should stop using the machines immediately and contactElectrolux to arrange for a technician to fix the problem.

Probably fatigued wiring from the chassis to the door where it bends every time you open and close the door. On my 500E, I took the sheet metal door skin off and found a couple of burned spots on the wires inside a clear plastic strain relief.

SOURCE: 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?
