The of means the grease trap is over full or over flowing and needs to be serviced. This is best done by a qualified serviceman.

Hello,
I had this problem and reset the dishwasher to solve. Turn off dishwasher for at least 20 seconds, turn on while pressing eco button and wait for about 30 seconds. Should hear beeps.

Mine too displayed the same problem - not heating, therefore not cleaning or drying properly (door still cold 20 minutes into cycle). I've found that there is a common (yet not often talked about) issue with a point on the controllers circuit board. If you remove the controller (simple to get at), remove the circuit board from the controller and flip it over you will see a 'burnt' solder joint on one of the legs to a black box component - resolder that joint and all should be well. Don't pause or open the door during a cycle as this seems to cause the joint to blow.

I have a dishlex global 450 it is displaying two backwards c's any ideas is there a fuse or anything....thanks


Hi
I do not recall this being a valid fault code.
If nothing at all works, it sounds like a faulty control board.
I hate to say it, but with the age of a Global 450, it may be more economical to replace the dishwasher.
Generally the board is quite expensive, and as the global series are quite loud and power hungry, it might be a good excuse for an upgrade.

Dishlex global 300.... The normal light starts flashing mid wash


i think it means the water heater in the dishwasher is not working,or the element is shot.
my 300 had a burning smell before the light started flashing.

Dishlex Global Unable to remove heater element retaining screw


I have a simialar problem with the Dishlex 450 Global model, after searching for the heating element on line, I found a picture of the element (450 model), showing that the Stainless Steel screw is actually spot welded to the element bracket, hence you should be able to remove it by accessing a retaining nut from underneath the dishwasher....(turn power off first!)..

I have a dishlex 450 dishwasher which is currently triggering off the fuse. Do you know what the like cause could be ???


This is likely to be caused by a blown heating element. To test this get a multimeter and test whether you can detect a circuit between the wire connected to the element and the chassis of the dishwasher, if you are getting a circuit it is shorting out blowing your fuse. The fix replace the element.
