20 Most Recent Electrolux EIDW6305GB 24 in. Built-in Dishwasher Questions & Answers

Good Morning sewblessed - Generally, error code E06 means that when the unit is in the dry cycle, the control does not receive the proper speed feedback from the lower fan. One of the best ways to determine if this is a false error code is to reset the power to the appliance by either unplugging it or flipping off the breaker for about 30 seconds. If the error code persists, then more than likely the lower fan will need replacing and I would recommend connecting with an experienced appliance repair tech to assist further.

Hello Shirley - Typically error code ER01 indicates that a water leak is detected under the tub. Unit will possibly need a hydraulic kit. Try unplugging the unit or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the unit back on. Could the error code DF possibly be PF? If so, PF means power failure and you should be able to start a cycle. If the error code continues to display on dishwasher then I suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose and repair it.

Check your water pressure in your home and to the unit. Also make sure the sprayer arms are not loose or broken. Water pressure is the only thing that moves the arms around for any cycle.

Dishwasher Problems - Waterwill not drain out


Electrolux... | Answered on Aug 25, 2011


If you have Tried Unplugging the Unit as well as you are sure that there is no Clogging in the Hose or the Pump, it sounds like it is Defective Control;Board.

Now. i have seen People calling Electrolux and usually they would either replace the hose or tell you to check filter or so or offer you a Leak Repair Kit which might not Solve the Problem as you do not have any Leak or Clogging. In the end, they would also accept that it is Faulty Control Board and Needs Replacement.

It is advisable that, if it is under Warranty, get it replaced directly by Company. If not, then you need to take a Wise Decision whether it is a Time to Get it repaired or time for a new one.

I could only advise you, if the Dishwasher is more than 4 years old and the cost of repair is more than half of the new one, then i should recommend you to go for new one unless Repair Makes sense.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The energy efficiency that has so much attention by the EPA has made it so that they probably will not dry completely any longer. Has the unit ever dried completely before? If it hasn't, then the only thing you can do is adjust your dishes so the water will not stand in the bottoms of cups, etc.

You might also check your heated dry "feature" on your dishwasher to assure that it has been selected to dry at optimum heat temperature. Also, do not open the dishwasher before the drying cycle has been completed.

Bosch has the best drying dishwasher model made so when it's time to replace this unit, choose a higher end Bosch for the best drying and the quietest models available.

If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:

Drain line/air gap A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Pump Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.

Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

There should be some sort of filter at the bottom of the machine, try popping that off and cleaning it off manually, also make sure after you take off the filter plastic that the hole under it is not clogged. if it is a must CAREFULLY run a coat hanger into the hole to clear any obstructions.

Dishwasher does not / will not start but the power is on Last updated 30/09/2020 08:52
  • Dishwasher does not / will not start but the power is on
Applies to
  • integrated dishwasher
  • freestanding dishwasher
Resolution 1. Make sure the door is fully closed.
Open and close the door again. If there is a click, this indicates that the door was closed properly.
2. Make sure the delay start function is disabled.
Consult the user manual for detailed instructions on disabling this mode.
3. Check if the previous cycle is still in progress.
If a cycle is still in progress it needs to be cancelled before programming the next cycle.
To cancel the cycle, please read the section regarding cancelling cycles in the user manual for the dishwasher.
On some models, the panel will show how you reset a cycle. Resetting may vary depending on the model so it is a good idea to check or download the user manual.
4. Check if "Ultra-quiet" or "Night" options are selected:
These options involve long pauses in the wash cycle, lasting up to 20 minutes. The cycle may still be running.
5. Check if there are any error messages or alarms:
The error message can be a flashing LED, a sequence of beeps or a code shown on the display. Consult your user manual for detailed information on how to resolve the issue.
6. Check for possible power issues:
  • Make certain that the appliance is plugged in and switched on.
  • Plug another device into the same socket to determine whether there is power.
  • If the socket does not work, contact a local electrician to resolve the issue.
7. Check if there are tripped relays or a blown fuse.
  • Reset the circuit-breaker / RCD device or replace the fuse.
  • You can reset the circuit-breaker by pushing the switch to the "ON" position.
8. The cycle may not start due to the lack of overlap between the lock and the diamond (applies to AirDry dishwashers).
To resolve this issue, refer to the article: "Dishwasher does not switch on, does not start a cycle, does not automatically open the door at the end of a cycle"
9. Contact an Authorised Service Centre.
If the above suggestions do not resolve the issue, we recommend requesting a visit by a service engineer.
Warning: We do not recommend using the product until the problem has been completely fixed. Unplug the product and do not plug it in again until you are certain that it is OK to do so.
