Success....Error 11 on Electrolux dishwasher?
\012 I have an Electrolux EWDW 6505 which in the start of a wash cycle would start beeping and Error code 11 would display.
\012 The problem: Drain Valve (Small copper lever switch inside)
\012 Solution 1.
\0121. Kill breaker to dish washer.
\0122. Pull dish washer out from under counter. (If you open door, usually held in by 2 screws above door that are screwed in under counter top.
\0123. Tip washer onto its back side.
\0124. Remove ss front plate below door(Held in with 2 screws).
\0125. Remove white cover plate from bottom of dish washer (held in by 3 Phillips screws)(TO REMOVE - Pull from bottom front of dish washer then slide towards back of dishwasher).
\012If the washer is laying on its back, the drain valve is located at the bottom left side of the machine (Closest to the floor).
\012 A. Remove the electrical connection to the Drain Valve by pulling
\012 it out from plug like harness socket.
\012 B. There are two star (T-20) head screws holding the drain valve
\012 on. Remove them from the bottom and pull the pump down
\012 and away from the Dishwasher to remove it.
\012 C. There are two hoses connected to the drain valve.
\012 One is held on by a metal screw down clamp fastener.
\012 (just turn the screw counter clockwise till lose then slide hose
\012 off.)
\012 The other is held on by a spring band type fastener.
\012 (Just compress the ends together with pliers and slide off.
\012 If you look at the valve, the top is white and the bottom is
\012 black. There are white tab like structures extending over the
\012 black part of the unit. This is where you want to separate the
\012 unit very carefully. If you bend them too much they will
\012 snap off or crack.
You want to easily and Gently lift and
\012 wiggle them away from the black hook like stops. The unit will
\012 then begin to separate. BE CAREFUL, THERE ARE 3

\012 A. Remove the white part and set it aside.
\012 B. Look at the black side under the housing. Here is where
\012 you will find the PROBLEM
. There is a blue lever that sits in a stem under a copper arm. When the DRAIN VALVE rotates in normal operation it presses on the blue lever causing it to press on the copper arm, which makes contact with the other copper side and closes the circuit. As the Drain valve continues to rotate, it releases the blue lever WHICH SHOULD SPRING BACK AND OPEN THE CIRCUIT AGAIN.
\012NOTE: (Try not to separate the two black pieces while doing this or you will see the gears maybe pop out and two copper springs and motor. NOT A BIG DEAL IF IT HAPPENS. the 3 gears will fit together on their stems, the springs both slide one into each hole, the botor goes on top and the two arms come in contact with the springs)
\012 C. THE FIX - LOOK at the blue lever. Right above it you will see a copper arm. Touch the Right side of the arm (where it is connected) with your finger and pull it down in the direction of the blue lever (ever so slightly just to give it its springiness back. so now if you emulate pushing up on the blue lever and release it, the copper arm should make contact with the other copper side, then, spring back on its own. (IT IS NOT FIXED UNTIL IT SPRINGS BACK ON ITS OWN) so adjust the copper arm accordingly.
\012REVERSE steps above to reassemble the washer.
\012Solution 2. Spend $55-75 for Frigidaire Factory Part #154622001 Only $51.52

Hello Gene Skates - Typically error code E11 indications that there is an issue with the drain valve, possibly the main control board is timing out before receiving status of drain valve. This is typically not a DIY job and strongly recommend contacting a professional to check the wiring between the main control board and drain valve since you have already replaced the drain valve.

Hi, ^The GE dishwasher (PDW788000SS) will not fill in either "rinse only" or "normal wash" modes. The control panel lights up with all functions. After selecting rinse only or normal wash and pressing/holding the start/reset button down for several seconds to reset the unit the drain pump comes on for approx 90 seconds as advertised. Checked the float switch and there is no continuity in any position of the little switch arm and the switch arm has no spring on it. Seems like this is a faile

My Whirlpool Gold Series 980 dishwater no longer fills up with enough water to drive the washing arms, so the dishes do not come out clean. I cleaned the filter on the water intake valve (which was really clogged) and it still did the same thing. Replaced the inlet valve and still no change. The water does not reach the level of the overfill float switch, so that’s not it. Its been working fine for 4-5 years, what else could it be? Thank you.

I have an Ariston LS245 dishwasher, have just had the pump replaced, as it had shorted out, due to water in the bottom tray where the water detection float is, also a new drain hose fitted.

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned the float. I also took the inlet valve off and cleaned the screen. Although the washer works better overall, the upper arm still does not work well. Nothing appears to be in the upper arm assy to clog water from spraying out. All seems clear from the turbid sensor (next to the pump) through t

Machine cannot finish cycle and is stuck in pumping out mode. Only tiny amount of water in drain basin at bottom, no excessive water. Was set at 10pm, still attempting to drain 8am! Has no diagnostic dials or manual over rides so continues on whether door is open or closed, even if I switch off and on again. Possible related issue, recently finish at end of washes has been "grainy", far from perfect, surfaces slightly sandy feeling.

SHX46B I have a 4 year old Dishwasher that filled up with clean water on it's own and leaked on the floor. There appears to ba a float switch switch on the very bottom of the unit that runs the pump if this happens. It won't stop until I remove the water caught in the plastic base on the very bottom of the unit. Drain is clear and this machine has worked fine until now. I'm thinking it may be a bad or leaky fill valve but how can I check?

When I lift up the float a little more I can hear the float switch make. I would assume that when the water is high enough the float switch makes and energizes a solenoid valve in the drain to drain the water, but shouldn't it stay open until all the water drains?
