Electrolux dishwasher lights flashing. When your dishwasher has problems with the heating element,
Water is not reaching the optimal temperature and there are flashing lights as well as intermittent delays that come up, which indicates faulty heating in the dishwasher.
You can check this problem by using a multimeter to see if there’s continuity in the heating element and if it shows no continuity (does not respond).
Then you have to replace this defective part in order to avoid more serious damage to other appliances.
Be sure to check which model your Electrolux dishwasher is (either by looking at a label or checking online) before buying a new replacement of this part because some models may require different parts for replacements.
Electrolux dishwasher lights flashing
Here are some common issues that can cause your Electrolux dishwasher to flash.
Here’s what to do if the lights on your Electrolux dishwasher flash.
The heating element has burnt out
To heat the water to operating temperatures, the water heater has a heating element.
The temperature control may flash if the water doesn’t reach the proper temperature after a set period of time.
Use a multimeter to test the heating element for continuity to determine whether it is burned out. Replace it if it does not work.
Heating Element Assembly issue
A heating element assembly is a piece of equipment used to heat up water so it can be used whenever needed.
In the event that the water is not heated to the specified temperature within a specified period of time.
There might be an issue with the heating element assembly, and this will be displayed on the heating element’s control panel in the form of flashing lights or a code that lets the user know that there’s a problem.
One way to determine if there are problems with any of your heating elements is by checking for continuity with a multimeter device.
Defective Drain Pump
Water is forced through the discharge hose by an impeller on the drain pump. A warning light may flash on the washer’s panel if the drain pump is not working.
If you do not see the light flashing and there is no water coming out of the discharge hose, open up the front panel of your machine and make sure that it is plugged into its proper outlet.
The outlet should be turned on as well. If after checking these outlets and connections there is still no response with your warning light, turn off your washer and contact your nearest appliance service company.
Drain pumps are typically not repairable so if you can tell that your drain pump is defective then you must purchase a new one for your washer.
Fault codes should be checked
If the dishwasher is flashing or blinking, there’s an error code in the display, and you’d like to know more about what’s causing it than having a look at the wiring diagram, tech sheet, plus dishwasher manual might give you some answers.
Replace Touchpad and Control Panel
Have you checked whether the display works? Press the touchpad buttons if it does. You will have a better idea whether or not it’s a defective touchpad or another problem entirely if certain buttons are unresponsive.
It’s possible there’s an issue with the control panel itself that you should replace along with the touchpad (but some manufacturers will sell the touchpads separately).
Depending on where you get your laptop, it may be necessary to purchase both together from a single seller. Even if you can replace the touchpad individually, we recommend getting both pieces replaced at once.
