It all started with a small leak that stopped the dishwasher from working, We changed the large rubber ring in the outlet and also changed the rubbers in the door
Now when the water comes into to dishwasher it doesn't stop and then it starts to overflow, maybe we have not put it together properly
Your help would be much appreciated
Kind regards Christine

Re: my dishlex dishwasher overflows
The only part that physically allows water to enter a dishwasher (upon receiving power from the control) is the inlet water-valve. I would test the inlet water-valve located directly where you in-coming water line is connected to.
Shut-off power to the dishwasher and remove the 2 prong connection to the water-valve solenoid (small, black, batter size). Test the solenoid for continuity; if bad, replace the entire inlet water-valve (cost about $20)

This appears to be a UK Electrolux dishwasher; however, if you have a US Electrolux model, here are a few tips you can attempt to troubleshoot the issue: First, Use only fresh detergent designed for automatic dishwashers. Measure detergent carefully. Possibly try a different brand of detergent. Secondly, spilled rinse aid can cause foam and lead to overflowing. Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth. Lastly, check to see if your dishwasher is level. If your dishwasher is still leaking, after trying the above solutions, I suggest contacting the manufacturer for further assistance. Hope this is helpful.
water level - pls check incoming water pressure, filter, water level sensor, water valve;
base/bottom overflow sensor - there is a float switch in the base of the machine inside a small plastic dish. Behind the kick panel, access through a metal lid/panel/cover secured by 2 small screws. Dry completely the area;
Air/dry/ventilate the unit/system for a couple of days;
reduce incoming water pressure.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
Hi just read your posting.Now the reason these dishwashers flash ECO is because there is either water in the bottom tray or your drain pump is open circuit.Is the machine making a pumping noise when it is flashing the ECO light,or is it completely silent?Please reply on additional information and I am sure I can help you.Looking forward to your reply.
I had the same problem with my Triton XL Model # - GSD6660G02SS Dishwasher. I tried adding water, zip tied each wash arm (one at a time) and had no positive result. Then I noticed a notch on what is called the docking cone. It supplies water to the middle wash arm. When the upper rack is pulled out you can see the cone at the back of the washer. Anyway I put a rubber O ring on this notch and the noise stopped. I can't tell from the parts list if the O ring is supposed to be there or not. Maybe a GE repair tech can confirm this. Hope it works for you as it did for me.
Hi . the air gap is required by law, to have it there.to stop water in the tub, to end up in your water system, which would never happen. try setting the pressure down, and use the dishwasher. it should work fine . turn down taps ,till it stops leaking . should be ok
There are a couple reasons water may be leaking out the door of a dishwasher. 1. The water is most likely coming out the bottom of the door where there is no rubber seal. 2.
The rubber seal is around the door jam on top and both sides and not on
the bottom. This means if the dishwasher has to much detergent in it
the soap suds push only the water higher than the front edge of the
wash basin and out the bottom of the door where there is no seal! 3.
Fill only the soap cup that can close for the secondary wash. The open
cup is a pre-wash and mostly not needed unless the food is baked
on.This just wastes money to fill both of them every time. 4. And if you are using liquid detergent you only need half the amount from the powdered soap! try less soap. Remember to much soap too can cause the water overflow. 5. And the last would be that the drain is clogged and caused a back up large or small and then the overflow! is there water in the bottom when the wash is done? Soap is usually the culprit, not that there can't be a leak in an old drain or water supply hose! Go with the soap idea first!
Let me know how you are! How old is the washer ?

Found I had no hot water in my Dishlex DX302 and did a google search and
found this page.
My problem was found to be the same as the others; one of the solder
joints on the relay on the control board had arced off.
You could see the burn mark on the board and cover where it had been
Soldered it back together, and now it seems to be going good again.
Now my only problem is a damaged door seal, which means a small water
leak; I have used part of a rubber glove to bridge the gap, and it
reduces the water leak.
