Having problems with your Electrolux Dishwashers ?

I have a ESF1600 model of an Electrolux dishwasher and at present it works sometimes and then not at other times. When you put it on a cycle it does not allow water in the power light comes on and the dial moves but it does not fill up. Could you tell me where to get a manual from for this brand and let me know what the problem may be.


Answers :

If you remove the bottom panel under the door, and look for the water inlet valve, I think you might find that the wires going to it are either not completely seated, or something like that.

While down there, check and make sure the wires which come down from the door to the underside of the tub haven't worn out from rubbing when the door opens and closes.

After that, there is checking the control board for loose wires, but you might want to call in a pro for that one... the last thing you want is to break the machine further trying to get it apart.

As always, make sure to shut off the breaker before you remove any panels.

Kenmore 665.16529000 When we put the dial to pots and pans the diswasher fills up and cycles through, when the dials moves to normal wash, it fills up and cycles through again. When the dial gets to light wsh we can hear the motor running but nothing is happening, but the soap door opens soon after. The heating light comes on and the inside of the dishwasher gets so hot that it has melted our big plastic tumbler cups on the top rack and makes the counter top extremely hot to the touch.

I have gas in the oil fill and oil coming out of the exhaust of my Ridgid pressure washer. I lent it to my father who isnt mechanical at all so anything could have happened while he was using it. He has since passed away so he cant tell me if he did anything wrong to it. Its a Ridgid with a Subaru SP170 OHC Engine. Any help would be appreciated. Scot

My Miele G641 displays the Salt PC light even after filling it with salt. I have to cycle the main power switch 3 or 4 times before the Start light will come on. Then when I press the Start button it momentarily pumps out water and then stops. Sometimes the Start light stays on and I can get it to give the pump another brief spurt, but often the Salt/PC light comes on again and the Start light goes out. I then have to re-set the power switch. How do I tell if the logic board is fried?

Dishwasher filling up and over flowing. switch to turn on pump comes on late or when I manually put pressure on drain. Have hard water and found much scale. could sensor/float scale cause this? Thinking about filling with white vinegar and letting sit so I don't have to take apart. Thoughts?

Miele dishwasher makes grinding noise when turned on, there is a light on front next to inlet/drain. So I poured some boiling water into the dishwasher and then left it turned on and could feel the boiling water coming out of the drain hose so I am assuming it is an inlet problem, as it will drain but will not fill or otherwise work.There are a few small cracks in the outer hose of he inlet hose just below the grey box thing, could that be enough to cause the problem? They are only small so I di

Blanco dishwasher Hi. Saw your answer on the Blanco dishwasher. We have same problem. Dishwasher makes all the pump sounds it used to, but does not start to drain at cycle start, and then no water comes in. read the manual again and think we may have been washing up - ie sinks plugged. Could this have triggered something. You mentioned something about a "micro switch" could you tell me where would this be?. We have a BFDW 650 S. Thanks, Angie

I have a Kenmore model 665. It is having an intermittent problem. It goes through the fill cycle, and then stops. Timer does not progress either. Then, at some random moment, it will come back on and finish the entire cycle. This could even be a day or two later. Sometimes it seems a nearby thump will set it off, other times no one is anywhere near it when it comes back on. This happened for a month or so off and on 6 months ago, and then it worked fine for 6 months. Now it's back to it.

Upper spray arm is not turning round even though water is coming through. We have checked the internal system for blockages and the machine is filling / draining as normal. When a full programme is run, many of the dishes, particularly on the top shelf, are dirty and many have hardly been touched by water. Could a pump or other part be faulty?


I found the problem to be neither blockages of the upper arm or roof spray arm or the upper basket arm hitting the the back of the dishwasher. the problem was that the pump inlet where the food scraps are macerated was blocked with all manner of gung ... Dishwashers
