Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

My dishlex dishwasher is a model 560 silent range with eco save and has a printed circuit type switch arrangement it has man code of b8833ww or 88833ww the problem is that the pause start button activates but dose not latch in I suspect that the problem is with a latching relay behind the switch panel as i have had the front off and cleaned the contcts with contact cleaner! all of the buttons work including pause ! any advise would help as would a wiring diagram and or a operation or workshop manual!

Hi.

The switch on this machine's control module is electronic. I do not think you will find a relay.

In normal conditions the button is not supposed to stay latched If the button is defective you may get the same problem when the faulty button closes and opens the circuit repeatedly canceling the cycle. If you hold down the button, it stays latched and cycle may go on.
When the on off is down the reading on the appropriate pin will be 10 Ohms.

Electrolux (who built your Dishlex) does not provide schematics for the board in the control module, as this is not supposed to be serviced. It is the same with most appliances.

You can test the button finding appropriates pins in the wiring harness connector and reading impedance to find out if button is closing and opening. The test is done with power disconnected (disconnect power cord or trip circuit breaker).

I do not have manuals for Dishlex. I may have the service manual for the Electrolux equivalent. The problem is that is in a foreign language.

Regards.

Ginko.

Hi, well I am sorry to inform you, but there are NO relays behind to.or that, activate the buttons, they are what are called Soft Buttons/Keys, These simply indicate that they are Closed, to the micro,and whatever action is assigned to them device performs.
Unfortunately what has happened is that the Micro, has developed a fault, and is for whatever reason is ignoring the commands, this usually happens due to an BAD internal fault.
Honestly the very best thing to do, cost wise and hassle, is to contact a service center for your unit, ask them to call, and ask for a "Quote" as to the cost of the repairs.
There is no way unfortunately with the symptoms to pin down the exact cause, with just this indication. You see seemingly simple things can mask a large underlying problem, and it is really best to have these attended to by a professional.

Hi just read your posting.Now the reason these dishwashers flash ECO is because there is either water in the bottom tray or your drain pump is open circuit.Is the machine making a pumping noise when it is flashing the ECO light,or is it completely silent?Please reply on additional information and I am sure I can help you.Looking forward to your reply.

Hotpoint FDW60 flashing eco light


if the eco light is flashing, this indicates that saftey float switch has activated in the base of the dishwasher usually caused by a leak, a polystyrene float activates a microswitch which cuts of the water inlet supply

Put detergent in a dishlex dishwasher now the pump stays on a& the dishwasher does not work, just displays a flashing red eco light


Hello jack SparWelcome,

You said, Put detergent in a dishlex dishwasher now the pump stays on a& the dishwasher does not work, just displays a flashing red eco light

What is the BRAND and MODEL Number and year of your dishwasher. Model can be found on sticker inside.

Did you turn off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes to see if it resets the system?
If this is not the case, Please explain!
What do you mean the pump stays on?????????????????????????


If it is not getting water and not working then these may be the problem
Water source turned off
Check to ensure the water source is turned on and water is getting to the water inlet valve.

Float switch
The float switch allows water to enter into the machine to a point where the float will rise up off of the switch and disconnect power to the water inlet valve. If the switch is defective or the float is stuck in the up position, the water will not enter into the machine

Defective water inlet valve

If there is 110v across the two wires on the water inlet valve when the machine is set to fill, the valve should open and the water should enter into the machine. If the water does not enter, the valve is defective.


Defective Timer

The timer is a series of switches that controls all machine functions. If one of the contacts in the timer is defective, the machine will lose that function. knowledge of the the use of a vol/ohmmeter is essential to testing the timer as well as the ability to read the timer sequence chart that is supplied with the machine. In most cases this requires a professional technician.

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.
