Acting strange This unit runs fine for one time, then next it wont turn off, or it starts to leak all over, or it switchs to manual all by itself. I suspect a ele. part, like a motherboard if it has one

:o) The JPX300H doesn't have a "motherboard", but maybe a timing module. Either way, even if the machine only runs one cycle, it suggests the timing board is working correctly. You have multiple problems. For starters, the leak is probably a loose hose clamp, most are located on the unside of the machine. The most difficult are the drain lines which are to the rear.
The auto/manual switch is pretty straight-forward, but it is a two-part assy; the button, and the switch itself. Check switch for continuity.

Seems to start and then cancels and drains


The flood switch might be turning on. This is the float unit at the base of the dishwasher. Could be the that the spring is faulty. Press and see if it comes back up. Otherwise there is leak in the dishwasher and water has collected at the base under the switch.

May need the actual model number to provide a more precise solution.

My Electrolux dishwasher is saying c3 what does this mean?


This is a 'float switch' error tip the machine to the side and see if water dribbles out of the bottom. If so then locate and stop the leak, dry the water and you should be fine. Be aware that sometimes the leak can be caused by a strangely packed plate or bowl etc. If no water the switch itself could be faulty(unlikely)

Yes ,you may be able to restore function by completely drying the area and PC board located under drawer.Use a hair dryer.
However , you will still have a leak and the problem will return.Usually the leak is drawer lid not closing properly. Suspect lid actuators have failed.Very common.Or some kind of obstruction.The drawer can be removed easily by removing 2 large plastic scews at drawer front.If lid actuators have never been replaced go ahead and do that.It is normal for other drawer to work fine.

Hope this helps you

I opened the door and the machine started running; the display panel flashes F2 and cannot be turned off or reset.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post, the good news...It is likely nothing very serious, but the "resolve" requires some investigation on your part.

What the F2 means is the control has indicated a overfill.


**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home electrical...safety first**

The first thing to do is remove the toe panel/kick plate and inspect the base for water. There will likely be water present.

With the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base, that should restore normal operation...it should be known that if you leave the unit for a few days, the water in the base will evaporate hence appearing as everything is fine again...if any other problem/leak does exist it will return.

If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker and soaking up any water present, it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump...
(it could mean a faulty drain pump so you'll need to pay close attention the next few times you run it)

**The float is primarily the last ditch safety to prevent disaster in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit and the illuminated
F2 letting you know to service or call for service to the unit**

Hope this helps move you forward, or even better resolves the issue altogether. Let me know of course, I will help you move further if necessary.

Good luck.

Macmarkus :)

Pump wont stop running turning power off doesnt help


Hello,
Welcome to FixYa.

(it could mean a faulty drain pump so you'll need to pay close attention the next few times you run it)

...If not, there are a couple of other possibilities that I'd focus on.

**Again insure power to the unit is off**

The first is the float and subsequently, float switch. If you've removed the service panel at the bottom, or toe plate, you need to locate the float and it's switch. It will be located directly behind where your main electrical junction is.

Once you've located the float behind the main connection plate, you should see something like this image below,

i.e.
macmarkus_6.jpg

With the aid of a long screwdriver or if you can reach it, move the float up and down and listen closely for the switch to "click", indicating it is indeed functioning. Restore power again, and see if this resolves the issue, if not try this next...

The pressure switch too can cause the drain/outlet pump to run constantly ( and usually all the lights to flash or "F2"...depending on the era and model of the Asko...ones with displays show F2 and lights flash ).


As I was saying the pressure switch is the component which controls the normal fill level and the overfill detection...pre float activation. The float is primarily the last ditch safety to prevent disaster in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit to service or call for service to the unit.

It too is located under the machine and is mounted to the sump well assembly as shown, the large arrow indicates the switch while the small is the hose.
i.e.

macmarkus_7.jpg

The issue is possibly just the hose going to the switch is clogged with debris such as dirt, detergent buildup etc and will be remedied by blowing it out.

The best way to do this is to remove this hose at the switch in the location indicated above, be very careful as to not break the hose off with the part of the switch inside, they can be delicate.

I typically work it loose with a tiny screw driver gently working it away from the switch. Once removed, pour a small amount of hot water, white vinegar or "CLR" through the sump from within the tub...or you can try blowing it through with "lung power".

The other end of the hose is located at the back of the sump well and is quite vulnerable to blockages over time due to detergents, dirt, and such.

This is the location...do not break this or you will need to replace the entire sump well...no fun.

Large arrow is pointing back to pressure switch, small indicates connection to sump well, sorry for the poor quality...it's hard to get in there with a camera phone, ha ha !

Dishwasher wont run water or turn off


This sounds like the float switch is stuck or bad. You might be able to wiggle the float or float rod around to free it up. Otherwise you will need to check the float switch itself and replace. This is easy and inexpensive. This link will walk you thru checking and replacing the float switch. It may be a different model but the process will be the same. If you need a diagram or illustration of your specific model enter your model # there. http://appliancehelponline.com/dishfloatwaterinletvideo.html

Dishwasher is not cleaning dishes.


you need to check to see what the temps of you water going into the unit is. it needs to be atleast 120 degrees. if not your unit may be waiting to heat the water, until it does then it wont go into the next cycle. it could be the heat cycle is not working so that would cause the unit to not advance.
let the unit run thru the place you think its stopping, but not more then 2 hours. if its not advancing then you might have a bad heating element.
