Dishwasher not draining, drying cycle error Electrolux ESF 4120


You didn't say what model you have, most dishwashers have a float switch inside to prevent over filling and subsequent flooding. If this switch is stuck, the dishwasher won't start. \015\012\015\012Open the door and look inside the unit ... Dishwashers

Bosch dishwasher My Bosch dishwasher finished a wash cycle and was showing the "END" light on, however, the motor was still running as though it was stuck on the drain cycle (there is a gurgling sound from where the eater drains off beneath the filter. Subsequently turning the washer on just repeats the apparent drain cycle with a constant gurgling sound (it does not kick into wash mode). The number on the manual is & 258 (7705).

I have a Bosch SGE63E05UC dishwasher that keeps intermittently showing an "E:25" error code. Occasionally it will get all the way through a cycle without going into error, but more often than not it will error and stop. So far the main control module in the front panel and drain pump have been replaced and the problem persists. All hoses have been checked and are clean (unit is only 1 year old) and drains well, when it does drain. Any suggestions?

I have a bosch dishwasher SHE43C06UC22 (non-LED version). It's stuck in the drain cycle and continues to run even when opening the door (it should stop, but it doesn't). As a test, I poured a large glass of water in the bottom of the dishwasher and it drained it into the sink as it should, but it continues to run in the drain mode with no water in it. I've heard I either have a float stuck or an emergency drain switch or leak somewhere causing the dishwasher to continue in the drain mode. Ho

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model # 66513449K900 that will not stop running. I think it is stuck on the drain cycle. I can start the dishwasher on a cycle and it appears to clean the dishes, but after the cycle is complete, it continues running and running (on the drain cycle) until you open the door. What could this be?


It is possible that the machine does not move off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to end the main program controller must receive the feedback so as to switch off the circuit at the end o ... Dishwashers

Bosch SHU43C My Bosch SHU43C is stuck with the drain pump running. I ran the self-test and it gave me the fault code 4 wich indicates a filling fault. The washer is empty and all wash cycles display the correct number of minutes for the cycle. It counts down to 0, but the pump continues to run. Does this indicate a stuck float, or is the problem with the control board? Where is the float located? Are diagrams/pictures available on-line anywhere? I've done some searching, but haven't found any. R


My SHU43C is just over 3 years old. I had a similar problem recently. First, there were a few floods. Then, the Bosch only drained non-stop. Even when I used the Cancel Drain buttons the drain pump would run without stopping. When I ... Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher

My DX303 is constantly bringing up error 30. I have had it apart, and there are no water leaks. If I pour water into it, it will drain no worries, however it seems like it wants to continuously drain with this error 30. Sometimes it will come good and go through its complete cycle hassle free, but it's not now. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Kenmore elite dishwasher runs until it is manually shut off by opening the door? My Kenmore Elite runs continuously until I manually drain (cancel) the cycle.
