No hot water, not drying (DX302WB)

(DX302WB)
The water doesn't seem to get hot and the dishes are still wet when the door is open, not drying.
Can this be fixed by myself or do i need to pay for servicing.

Hi

mine had this exact same problem - it turns out that the relay on the control board had not been soldered on properly. mine has shorted out over time, and caused a lot of charing of the localised area. i checked the relay, it was okay, so have resoldered the board and all is working for now.

i called Electrolux - 1800 001 218 - to report the problem, as i believe there are too many peoplew reporting this issue for it to be a one off. i was also concerned about a fire risk, as the charing on mine was considerable.

too be blunt, Electrolux didn't seem to care too much, unless if i wanted to pay to have someone come look at it, despite the fact that i am an electrician.

Electrolux currently say that this is the first time this problem has been reported - despite that fact they are aware of this thread. i would encourage anyone whoi has this fault to call the above number and report your problems to them, as i believe a recall may be waranted, and, should your unit have serious problems (fire) it is on record.

Electrolux currently have a recall on a couple of other dishwashers due to the fact they pose potential fire risks - see www.recalls.gov.au

Just fixed this myself using a post from this user :

http://www.fixya.com/support/t579479-dishwasher_dishlex_dx302wb_no_hot_water


In short - it's a dry joint on the cct board.

Uplug dishwasher

Remove front panel by unscrewing screws visible when you open the dishwasher door.

Remove control module and associated cables.

Open up the module and use a bit of wire & solder the dry joint.
See pics below from my repair

Most dishes in any dishwasher are still wet when cycle is finished. The heat built up in the dishes during the washing cycle is what causes the water to evaporate when the machine stops.
If you want to accelerate the evaporation, simply open the door very slightly so that as the hot air escapes it causes the dishes to dry quicker.

Kenmore dishwasher leaving a lot of water on door, bottom, wall and dishes! it STINKS!


The pump could be leaking. The drain could be plugged - hence the smell. Taking a look underneath could reveal what needs to be fixed. I don't have an answer for why dishes are still wet even after a hot wash and heated dry but perhaps it is related to the other problem

Dishes are still wet...water doesn't seem to be heating


bad water temperture. run the machine after you run the hot water faucet. add and fill jet dry .close the door lower it then raise it repeat three times then refill keep doing this until the dispenser cant hold anymore liquid. you will see a big difference.

You dont really need it, when the washer gets done Open the door for a minute and let the steam out and shut the door dishes will then dry. the reason there still wet is because of the steam from the Hot water

Have bosch she45 that stays wet inside after cycle completes. some of the dishes are wet also, how do I stop this


First of all, Bosch is my Favorite! Secondly, maybe your heated dry button is not on. Are you keeping the door closed until the dishes have had a chance to completely dry? This unit has a system that drys with the walls of the d/w as long as the door remains closed. I hope this helps you. :>)!

When the wash cycle is done, the dishes are wet


It seems that the newer dishwashers are worse at drying dishes than their tupperware melting predecessors were. They have all been tuned down, and do dry less. The only thing that you can do is to set your machine for the hottest wash, power dry and use a rinse agent that provides a sheeting action. Some folks use white vinegar as a supplement to their rinse aid, which has the added bonus of killing mold. Water also stays attached if the water has laid down minerals as noted by cloudy glassware. If this is the case, a dishwasher filter (dishwasherfilter.com, $70) might help. We try to wash hot, with a power dry and use a rinse aid/vinegar. Then, when the cycle is complete, but the dishes are still hot, we open the dishwasher, and "jiggle" the racks to get the excess water off of the glasses, and leave the dishwasher open about 2" at the top, so the dishes will continue to air dry. This has been an effective method for us.
Best regards, --W/D--

Water not hot


Dishwashers are suppose to be hooked up to hot water. If you had hotter water it would clean just fine. 120 deg or more!
