Dear batties,
Such water filling problems can be generally solved by checking the following

  • Inspect the seals for the main tub, float, heating element and blower diffuser
  • Check for overfilling
  • Inspect the water and drain hoses
  • Inspect the door gaskets
  • Check the water inlet valve
  • Check the pump
Also for the mid cycle problems check the following

Error code 01 keeps coming up and will not let dishwasher complete its cycle. My dishwasher no. is ewdw6505gso and it is only 3 years old. I have 2 other appliances that are Electrolux. Please help.


Mine was only a few months old when error 01 arrived - it is a leak. The Electrolux dishwashers have a leak detector at the bottom inside the plastic pan, that when water appears it sets off the code and you cannot restart the dishwasher until you dry the pan out (tip the unit forward and water will come out) but it will keep on doing it unless you repair it - mine was covered under warranty and they replaced a lot of parts at the bottom. Not even a year later it leaked again, but not as bad. I took it apart and removed a fabric pad that sits in the bottom of the pan, it does not go off that much any more since the water evaporates before it does any damage. I think this feature is completely useless - I would rather see a wet spot on the floor than not be able to do dishes... If you got 3 years you are doing well. I will just replace my appliances as they die and never buy Electrolux ever again! PS if a refrigerator is one of your other units, be aware that their main boards can fail and are very expensive to replace. You will know it is blown when your food freezes in the lower compartment and your lights come on instantly instead of glowing up slowly.

Display showing f4 what does that mean thank you julie


Hello

Fault with water fill (only on machines with level-controlled fill)

1. Disconnect the power to the unit

2. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher (you will probably find it is full of water)

3. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water

4. There is a float that should stop the operation of the dishwasher and run the pump if water is in this tray. Check this pump to see if it is functional

5. Test the dishwasher

6. If there are no leaks from the dishwasher into the pan, check the drain hose under the sink

7. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO THE TOP OF THE UNDERSIDE OF THE COUNTERTOP THEN DOWN TO THE DRAIN. (If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overfill the tray

*Faults may vary by model. Use this as a general guide.

No water is coming in the dishwasher. I can hear the water running, but the water is not coming into the dishwasher


If you can hear the water running - but it's not filling, you most likely have a drain problem, which is being stuck open. Usually the motor kicks in and either pumps the water through the wash arms (during wash cycle) or through the drain (during drain cycle) the switch that/or flap could be stuck on the drain and it is pumping it out the drain all the time instead of the wash arms.

Water doesn't fill after 50-60 secs of valve


Float valve is not used in normal cycle, it is a failsafe method. Energy conservation issues dictated less water during washing.

Panel lit and motor running but will not cylce


It's almost certainly the case that something has started leaking in the bottom of the dishwasher (a seal or hose) and has filled the bottom catch pan with water. There is a float in the pan which will trip the unit into a mode where the pump turns on to flush out all the water inside the unit to avoid overflowing the pan and causing much more damage (to the subfloor and anything on lower stories or basement). As long as you have the unit turned on, the pump will run to flush out water. Until the catch pan is purged or enough water dries up.
At any rate, somebody needs to look at why the catch pan is filling up with water.

E4 fault code


Hi, when a dishwasher goes into overfill mode it usually means that the bottom tray has water in it that operates a float connected to a microswitch. Open the bottom panel and soak up all water then check to make sure the float is down completely.then restart dishwasher. Why it has overfilled is another problem. It could be a faulty pressure switch,pressure switch hose may have a hole in it, water valve may be faulty. Too much soap or wrong soap can cause too many suds and hence overfill.Also if rinse aid is spilt when filling. Or seals leaking. etc.
