To troubleshoot an Electrolux dishwasher, you must first identify the specific problem. Common problems with Electrolux dishwashers include recurring error messages, leakage and unpleasant odors, unusual noises and broken door seals.
If the dishwasher displays an error, the Electrolux website provides a list of solutions that can help resolve specific errors. For example, if the dishwasher displays code 10, the taps are likely turned off and the machine is not filling up properly. To solve this, turn on the taps or clear the filter if it is clogged. If the dishwasher continuously displays letter "P," the pause mode is active and pressing the start button can help clear this problem.
If the cycles are too long or too short, check that the correct program is selected. If there are damaged dishes in the dishwasher, ensure that all items loaded are dishwasher proof. Dishwashers can produce dirty dishes if one uses incorrect amounts of detergent or the spray arm holes are blocked. To resolve this problem, ensure that spray arm holes are unblocked and that the correct detergent is used in the recommended amounts.
When the door is not closed properly, power supply is not connected, or when the delay mode is activated, the dishwasher may fail to start. To resolve these issues, plug in the dishwasher, check the circuit breaker and ensure that the correct mode is chosen. If the dishwasher fails to function completely, contact the company for professional advice.
