Question about Electrolux 18 in. ESL4114 Slim-Line Built-in Dishwasher
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.
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 :
In short - it's a dry joint on the cct board.
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
