Troubleshooting Electrolux Dishwasher Error Codes

There are a lot of factors why you may encounter problems with your dishwasher. From using too much detergent to overusing the appliance itself, it's important to know what to do when these problems arise. It is certainly an inconvenience, especially if it happens to one of your most-used appliances. In this article, we'll discuss how to properly maintain your appliance and break down the common problems you might encounter with your Electrolux Dishwasher. We'll also list all Electrolux Dishwasher error codes so you can troubleshoot it yourself should you encounter these issues.

Properly Maintaining Your Electrolux Dishwasher

It is important to always properly take care of your Electrolux dishwasher. This is to ensure that your dishwasher and other appliances will continue to operate and last you for years to come. Taking small steps to maintain your dishwasher will safeguard your machine from any major repairs down the line. Here are a few tips to get started:

Check for proper installation of the water inlet and drain pump - Before anything else, ensure that the inlets and hoses are properly connected and installed on the machine. Check that the drain pump and drain valve are always working. If there is an issue with the drain, an i20 error code will come up.

Always clean your dishwasher - Keeping your machine clean will ensure that the machine's wash motor and other parts will function smoothly. This will also eliminate any debris build-up from the water, thus minimizing the need for replacement parts. Make sure to clean your dishwasher after every wash cycle.

Monitor the water temperature - Be on the lookout for a faulty temperature gauge on your machine. Turn your dishwasher on and check for a consistent temperature during your wash cycle to ensure it is not faulty.

Check for water leaks - Ensure that the drain system works properly to avoid water damage in the control panel or the need for a full repair due to water leakage. Check the wiring, keeping it dry at all times.

Check the switch & timers - Check the switch & timers regularly. If these are working properly, there are likely no issues with the electrical power, and the switches are functioning as they should be.

Know Which Parts are Having Issues

If you encounter dishwasher error codes with your Electrolux Dishwasher, check your manual to reference which part is potentially causing the error. This narrows down the problem and makes it easier to troubleshoot or identify if a part needs a replacement. Also, it’s a good idea to write down the code on display before fixing, replacing, or sending it to the service center to address the issue properly.

i90 

Configuration Problem

i91 

Checksum MCF

i92 

Checksum CCF. The error is signaled if the configuration control of the washing cycles provided erroneous results.

i93 

Checksum UIDATA. The error is prompted once the configuration control of the UI data provided erroneous results.

i94 

The UIDATA VERSION does not meet the configuration file requirement attached to the UI board.

i95 

The UIDATA TYPE does not meet the configuration file requirement attached to the UI board.

iB0 

This means that there is a problem with the sensor. This error will prompt if the calibration procedure is not properly set after 15 sec.

iC0 

This means that there is a Communication Error or User interface communication problem.

iC1 

MACS bus communication. Your machine will attempt to establish communication. After three communication error attempts, the error is signaled in the hardware control.

iC2 

ADSI communication. The washing program will be terminated, but you can restart it once the error has been addressed.

iC3 

There is a problem with the communication between the appliance's power board and its Motor Control Board.

iD0 

This might indicate a Tacho Problem or a signal error. If the washing pump has been selected and activated but no signal appears after a few seconds, the heating element might not be activated.

iD1 

This is a critical signal. Check if the washing pump is activated. If after 5 seconds there is no tacho signal, then the heating element might be temporarily deactivated. After checking again for another 30 seconds and there is still no signal appearing, the appliance will display an iD0 error code.

iE0 

Check the spray arm level for flow control position

iF0 

There might be a water level problem. Overfilling might be detected.

iF1 

Water level is too high

10 

The appliance is not filling with water

20 

The appliance is not draining the water

30 

The anti-flood device is turned on

 

Trouble 

Possible Solution

The appliance is not filling with water

  • Something is blocking the water tap or it may have limescale on it. 

  • Make sure the water tap is free of debris. 

  • The water pressure is insufficient.

The water tap is not open

  • Something is blocking the filter. 

  • The connection of the water inlet hose is incorrect. 

  • The water inlet hose is damaged.

The appliance is not draining the water

  • There is debris blocking the sink spigot. 

  • The connection of the drain hose might be incorrect. 

  • The drain hose might have been damaged. 

  • The anti-flood device is on. Close the water tap and contact the service center.

The washing program is not starting

  • The appliance door is not closed properly 

  • It is unplugged
