Q:

Electrolux EIDW6105GB1 leaks below the foat assembly.

A:

Hi Michael,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

The instructions for removing the float are in the images below. I have marked the parts you should change NUT (part number 154506902), GASKET (part number 154677201), and WASHER (part number 154506801) with red arrows.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram and for parts purchases; Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Michael, Without being there to see this for myself, it would be difficult to confirm that the float is where the leak is coming from. If you replaced all of the parts of the float/switch assembly it would cost less than $40.00. If you are sure the leak is from that area, about the only other thing it could be is a bad tub. Landell

Q:

My dishwasher does not get hot anymore. Is it a "heating core"/heater. I

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I don't understand if you had a Sears technician out why didn't he/she diagnose and repair your dishwasher?

I strongly suggest getting the technician back out to diagnose the failure and to complete the repair. 

If the wash motor/wash pump is not running, water will not circulate through the flow through the inline heater assembly and it will not get hot. 

If the pump is running and it's not heating water, it could have a faulty heater assembly or a faulty control board.

The inline water heater is the total heat source for this dishwasher. Water pulled from the sump by the wash pump first passes through the inline heater before entering the water distribution system. The inline heater assembly is made up of a 1200 watt heater, formed into a coil, a long with a safety thermostat and a thermal fuse all mounted to a stainless steel tube.

The safety thermostat is a self resetting thermostat opening at 200° F and resetting at 100°F. The thermal fuse is a one time fuse that opens at 440°F. If the thermal fuse should open the heater assembly will need to be replaced.

In normal operation the control will not power the heater until the unit was filled and the wash pump is operating.

 The inline heater can be checked for resistance at the electronic control across the red and white wire connected to P10 connector. The ohms reading on the heater is 11.7 ohms cold. This heater is not to be checked with power applied without water in the unit. To replace the inline heater the unit needs to be removed from under the counter. The inline heater assembly is part #154503701 which can be ordered from SearsPartsDirect. NOTE: Disconnect the power supply from the dishwasher before servicing.

The motor can be checked for resistance at the electronic control. The ohms reading of the motor between the blue and white leads is 22.9 ohms. The tachometer can also be checked at the control the ohms reading on the tachometer is 219.9 ohms between the two green/yellow wires on the motor plug. To replace the wash pump and motor assembly the dishwasher will need to be pulled from under the counter.

 If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.
