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

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.
A simple solution would be to not select Heat Dry if you have that option on your machine. When the washing cycle is complete, open the door partially (4 to 6 inches) to allow the hot water vapors to escape.
Evaporation will dry the dishes in the lower section and the warm dishes can be returned to your cabinet.
Glasses, etc., from the upper section can be removed and stored.
In the remaining space on the upper level. Cups that may have some water remaining in the depressions at the bottom of the cup are turned horizontally in the basket so the water from the depressions can drain. Some minimal wiping may be necessary prior to storage.
Not only have we solved the drying problem we have added some humidity to the air; do not have to worry about a non-functional switch and reduced our electric bill as well.
As a side note, once all of the above has been completed we never close the door completely but leave it an inch or two from a complete close; this will not compress the door gaskets and will add to their service life.
Hope this helps!
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
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.
sounds like your heating element is not working prtoperly or you are not washing in very hot water stop washer in middle of cycle and open it if steam come out hot steam be careful keep face away when you open itif not hot that could be the problem,A appliance serviceman once told me if water is hot enough and end of wash and rinse cycle not to run the dry cyvcle just open dryer a few inches and let the steam out Run hot water over a plate or a pot and set it in the drain tray in your sink notice how fast it dries itself while draining in the tray very hot water in a dish washer dopes the same good luck with this problem I hope my advice helps you oh yes one more thing always run the hot water till it get hot before you turn your dishwasher on
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
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.
