  • Page 5: Purpose Of This Manual

    1 Purpose of this manual The purpose of this Service Manual is to provide Service Engineers, who already have the basic knowledge necessary to repair household dishwashers, with technical information regarding dishwashers featuring the EDW1500-1510 electronic control system. These appliances are manufactured at Solaro (Italy). The EDW1500-1510 control system consists of a main circuit board and a control/display board.

  • Page 17: Power Supply And Programme Selection

    6.3 Power supply and programme selection The main board is powered by the closure of contacts 1-5 and 2-4 of the ON/OFF button (PU). The connectors used in this case are A2 (neutral) and B1 (line). The control/display board (user interface) is powered at 5V by the main board, making programme selection possible.
  • Page 18: Fill Circuit

    6.4 Fill circuit 6.4.1 Level and anti-overflow pressure switch The level of water introduced into the appliance is determined by • the level pressure switch (A) The anti-overflow pressure switch (B) ensures that the level of • water does not exceed the safety threshold (causing overflow from the door).
  • Page 19: Control Of Water Fill Phase

    6.5 Control of water fill phase The quantity of water necessary to carry out the washing cycle is determined exclusively by the closure of the electrical contact of the pressure switch, which changes from EMPTY to FULL. This system ensures that, if the pressure switch re-opens on EMPTY, further water is introduced until it returns to FULL.
  • Page 20: Level Stability During Washing

    6.7 Level stability during washing Once the fill phase has been completed, the cycle proceeds to the washing phase. The washing phase is carried out using cold or heated water, and the status of the pressure switch is monitored constantly to ensure that the hydraulic system functions correctly.
  • Page 21: Heating

    6.9 Heating The heating element is enclosed in a protective tube, and is used to heat the washing water (but does not switch on during the drying phase) The heating element is fitted to the outlet of the washing pump and connected to the duct which feeds the upper spray arm.

    6.10 Disactivating the rinse-aid function Introduction of rinse-aid may be disactivated by the user by pressing a combination of buttons. In this case, the Rinse-aid LED (if featured) will also be disactivated. 1. Cancel any cycles that may have been selected. 2.
  • Page 23: Regeneration System

    6.12 Regeneration system Regeneration of the softening system, whose duration is approximately 4 minutes, is normally performed at the beginning of the drying phase. Each time regeneration is performed (the regeneration solenoid 4 is energized), the chamber is completely emptied (about 230 cc of water). Regeneration is controlled by the electronic control system “Ad Hoc”, i.e.
  • Page 24: Regeneration Levels

    6.14 Regeneration levels The counter for execution of the “Ad Hoc” regeneration process is governed by the electronic control system on the basis of the duration of the fill phases (i.e. the quantity of water introduced), and NOT on the number of cycles.

  • Page 26: Automatic Cycle

    8 Automatic cycle 8.1 Turbidity sensor Certain models which feature the turbidity sensor may also feature a special “automatic” programme which optimizes the cycle according to the size of the load and the degree of soiling. This sensor is positioned externally to the sump, in direct contact with the water.
  • Page 27: Alarms

    9 Alarms In the event that an abnormal situation should occur which might affect the correct operation of the appliance, the circuit board causes a safety system to intervene. In most cases, this interrupts the washing cycle. The last three alarm conditions are stored in memory. Using a special procedure available only to Service Engineers, it is possible to read all the alarms stored in memory.

    10 Diagnostics mode / Options A single procedure can be used by Service Engineers to access the diagnostics system. After accessing diagnostics mode, the Engineer can: read / cancel the alarms, check for correct operation of the various components of the appliance, start the diagnostics cycle and select the options available to Service Engineers.
  • Page 30: Cancelling Alarm Codes From Memory / Testing The Leds

    10.3 Cancelling alarm codes from memory / Testing the LEDs It is good practise to cancel the alarm codes after reading the alarm code or after effecting repairs to check whether it is repeated during the diagnostics test. 1. Access diagnostics mode (see 10.1) 2.

    10.5.2 Disabling pulse washing Certain programmes use the pulse washing system (PW). Using the procedure described below, the Service Engineer can modify this system so that Ctrl (continuous) washing is used in all those programme which normally use the PW system. This intensifies the washing action even in delicate programmes. Disactivation/activation mode 1.
