Welcome to Justanswer … my name is ***** ***** I will help you today!

2 beeps in your dishwasher is drain fault.

The dishwasher is unable to drain as it is clogged.

Try this:

You will have to unplug the appliance and pull it out.

Then tip it backwards by around 45 degrees so excess water drains off completely.

After this is done, check the drain hose where it connects to house drain and make sure it is not clogged.

Then clean the mesh filter from inside and make sure it is not blocked.

Reconnect everything and plug it back.

Select any program and it should work, let me know how it goes.

hi, ive just done all. tilted but nothing draining away

Have you checked the drain hose and pump ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ive checked the drain hose no kinks etc, is the pump the filter in side?

Yes, clean it as much as you can.

Then reconnect and see if you still get same error code.

If the problem is still there then you will have to contact Electrolux as it is still under warranty (if it is).

The problem will be with pressure sensor that is either clogged or faulty and will have to be replaced.
