Wendy, sounds like the drain pump or the actuator for it has failed. If you hear the pump motor hum, but it does not empty the water, it may be jammed with some debris. To access all of the mechanical workings, you will need to remove the lower access/kick plate cover, on the bottom of the front of the dishwasher cabinet. You may want to empty most of the water out of the tub by hand, before you attempt to work on it. Also, check the circuit breaker for the dishwasher in your home's circuit breaker panel, to make sure it has tripped. If it has, reset it to see if the dishwasher will start running again. Just make sure it's in the drain water cycle.

What is causing condensation on the back wall of my Electrolux dishwasher.


Thank you for your post, friend!

I see that you have condensation building up on the back wall of your Electrolux dishwasher. Condensation can build up due to water and cold air. You may have a leak inside of your gasket. I would recommend checking your gaskets to make sure they are not damaged. If your gaskets appear in good condition it could be an issue with your thermostat or element. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

The anti-flood system has been triggered on ELECTROLUX ESF 656 how can I fix it?


The anti-flood system has been triggered means that water remains in base because leakage or overflow. In this case, in order to prevent flooding, drain pump running continuously.
Remedy: you should first remove the water from the bottom of the dishwasher and determine leakage.
If you work around the dishwasher, you always take care that appliance must be disconnected from the power supply.

Why will my dishwasher Electrolux model #EIDW5905JS0A, not drain completely at the end of its cycle.


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EIDW5905JS, will not completely drain at the end of the cycle. It is not normal for water to remain in the bottom of the tub at the end of a cycle. If water remains in the bottom of the tub at the end of a cycle, the dishwasher may not be draining properly. Please follow these troubleshooting tips:

    1)If unit is hooked up to a garbage disposal, make sure the disposer is empty.

    2)If unit is hooked up to a new food waste disposer, check to see if the "knockout" plug located inside the disposal inlet has been removed.

    3)Check to see if drain hose is kinked.

    4)Make sure cycle is complete, not in a pause.


    I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Lastly, make sure cycle is complete, not in a pause.

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.

You will have some water at the bottom, as stated in the owner's manual. However if you have more than 1.5 inches, you have a drainage problem.

Electrolux ESI 602 will not fill with water


The float better be inside the tub, at the bottom, it usually only travels a couple of inches up and down... you may have a protective cover in the way of it.

Dishwasher fault


If you have tried to run any cycle and still end up with this problem, then most likely a failed timer unit. The next step is for the water switch to enact the next step which is to start the timer.
