Having got the i10 error code on the dishwasher Electrolux, you must first check the above list. Well, we should start with the simplest, that does not require disassembly of the machine, and this is clogs.
How to Solve the Problem when appeared on the dishwasher Electrolux error code i10
First, you have to check a garbage filter, the dirtiest place in the dishwasher Electrolux. To do this, open the dishwasher door, take out the bottom basket, then remove the bottom sprinkler and unscrew the dustbin. In addition, you need to get a grate, which is located next to it. Wash all these parts with hot water.
Often, a layer of fat settles on the dust filter and grate after washing the fat dishes. It blocks water and doesn’t allow it to seep that causes problems. You need to thoroughly clean the dishes before putting it in the baskets for washing.
Next, you need to check the water inlet hose. If it is not squeezed, and water is supplied, it is necessary to:
- shut off the water;
- unscrew the water inlet hose;
- find flow filter at the base of the hose;
- pull it out and clean the mesh;
- If there is another flow filter on the tap-tee, it should also be cleaned.
The inlet valve is checked last. In order to pull it out, you have to remove the side wall of the dishwasher by unscrewing a few screws around the perimeter. After unscrewing the side wall, carefully select the valve, unscrew it, and then remove but don’t forget to disconnect the supply wires before. Check the valve for clogging. If there is some litter, clean it out. The valve has to be closed and opened without any difficulties. Take the multimeter and check the resistance of the filling valve. If the valve is out of order, change it to a new one and check the operation of the dishwasher.
So, what to do if Electrolux suddenly stopped and showed the i10 error code? Pay attention to clogging because in the majority of cases this is the reason for the problem’s appearance.
