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.

Error 50 is coming up on my dishlex dx 301 and it is not working. It is about 3 years old.

A 50 Code means an electrical fault
This is something that is triggering the computer to think a conponant has failed
It could be a faulty motor for eg

Sometimes water in the door or condensation under the unit can cause this

Dishlex suggest you call their service center when this code comes up
hope this helps

Fav 60750 dishwasher has intermittent short circuit causing sparks from inner mains connector triggering house circuit breakers. No short circuit points obvious on wires or equipment. Where should I look...

It is not clear to me whether triggered fuse or differential circuit breaker?
If triggered fuse than is short circuit or overload. If triggered only differential circuit breaker than could be current leakage.
In case of short circuit I suggest you to disconnect all load, one by one (pump, motor, heating element.....etc.), until you find a load that make a short circuit.
In case of current leakage, my experience says check heating element measuring resistence between housing (earted) and each pin (two) of heating element. Should be more than 2 MOhm.
I hope I've helped.

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

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.

I need a free manual for the dishlex global 450. Most sites request you sign up.

Here in the state, Dishlex is the same as Electrolux. I would think the models are the same,except fort he number. Take a look.
Oh yes here is the Australian manual download site also:
Hope this helps.

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!)..

No idea how to put filters in Dishlex Global 450

G'day Megan.

I just pulled my dishlex apart (AGAIN ) and I'm sure that there is some sort of --- hang on while I go check this out!!!!! --- Wait --- Yep, if you look at the part itself and read around the ring it says "PUSH THIS CUP FIRMLY DOWN TO SECURE FILTER", Errr. Yeh - very informative

The part you are talking about goes into the bottom filter LAST with the pipe thingy sticking up in the air like a tower.

If you still can't figure it out, let me know and I'll photograph the assembly and re-post.

Dishlex global 300 dishwasher, eco light flashing sounds like pump noise but not working

Try taking the dishwasher out of its wall space and tipping it back and forth. Apparently the weight of water gathering in some component triggers the 'eco' function. Failing that, last time it happened to my dishwasher i waited a week for the repair guy to arrive, by which time the water had evaporated and there was no longer a problem..

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.

My dishlex global 450 dishwasher was making a humming noise all night and dispayed OF before I disconnected the power to it. Thanks Karen

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.
