    same problem

  • Anonymous Jan 05, 2009

    I have the same problem. Turning the power off them on doesn't help at all nor does holding down the buttons to reset the machine.

    I'm thinking there may be something stuck in the water pump.

    On a normal program the 'pot' light has started flashing and then the electric on the house trips out. We can then re set the breaker but once the dishwasher starts up again, it's only a meeter of time before it trips again

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..

    There is a small reservoir, like a dish, with float located underneath of the drain. It is visible if you will remove the side panel. If water is in reservoir, float came up and switch the pump "on" and trigged "ECO" function. Draining water from this reservoir solves the problem, but you have to find why dish has became full of water in the first place :)

    On my machine ti wasn't a side panel and you did NOT need to take the machine out of the wall space. Its all accessible from in front.
    Once you get the kick plate off you will see a galvanised panel that runs the width of the machine. It is held in place by two hex screws (easily removed). Take the panel off and then you will have exposed the underneath of the pump machinery at the bottom of the machine. About mid line in the machine and in the front as you look at it you will see the plastic dish and if it has water in it then use a Chamois or other absorbent cloth to dry it out. Voila and the machine should start. If this solution doesn't work the problem is not with the float switch so need to look elsewhere.

Hi,

The symptoms on a Dishlex Global 300 dishwasher:
  • eco light is flashing constantly;
  • noise on pump running continuously;
  • but the unit will not operate.
Possible corrective actions include:
  • 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.

Dishlex dishwasher global 300. Dishwasher continues to drain with ECO light flashing. Service manual says it is due to an incorrect fill level or fill line.


Some diswashers have a sump in the bottom with a float switch. If the water level overflows the float will activate the switch which will kill the machine and run the drain pump continuously.
