Question about Dishwashers
Hi there, our Electrolux slimline dishwasher has started beeping intermittently during operation in the last few weeks. Looking through the manual, the signals are referring to a problem of the dishwasher not filling with water. However, this does not seem to be the case - there is clearly water going into the dishwasher through the inlet hose. The dishwasher is only a few months old. No idea what is causing the dishwasher to think it is not filling with water! Would be grateful for any help.

before you operate the dishwasher get your water as hot at the sink as you can this will prevent filling the dish washer with cold water and i would use powder or liquid now if you not sure of your heating element turn your washer to dry close the door for about 2-3 minutes get a glass of cold water open the door and pour water on the element if it sizzles its working

Try tipping the dishwasher back to see if any water drains out from below if there is water present then the anti-flood device is energised and stopping water coming into the unit.If it works now after resetting then there is a leak under the machine that needs investigating.You can try going into the diagnostics to read the alarms.If you hold in the first and third button from the left on programmer,whilst holding in then press the on/off button then when the lights start racing release these 2 buttons.You should now be in the diagnostics,now press the first button once and count the flashes of the end of cycle LED.If this button is pressed 2 more times it will give the previous alarms.1 flash could indicate fault on inlet water and valve.2 flashes drain circuit blocked.3 flashes anti-flood device.8 flashes faulty circuit board.Make sure after reading alarms to switch off unit then on then off to reset.Then go back into the diagnostics as before to reset alarms but this time press button 2 from left all LEDS will flash after exit as before.
Hope this helps.

Hi Peter Gumbrell - Often when the dishwasher door does not lock, it is because the of door lock assembly. The door lock or latch may either be faulty or damaged. If I was in your position, I would personally recommend consulting a professional to accurately diagnose the dishwasher to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Hi - If the unit is not drying nor cleaning properly, there are two main things to check first. Is the incoming water temperature at least 120F (49C)? If not, I strongly suggest that the temperature be adjusted on your water heater. Are you using rinse aid? Use a rinse agent to increase drying performance and using Sanitize or Air Dry Off mode also helps improve drying. If any proves to be ineffective, contact a professional to move forward accurately.
