Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Error code e4 on kenwood kdw243a any ideas????


Answers :

Error code E4......I have the definitive answer.
All the recommendations to tilt the machine are totally wrong!!!!! It may work in the short term but is a bodge-fix and covers up the "real" problem - you have a water leak- its as plain as that.
There is nothing wrong with the Kenwood and it has a 'Flood Sensor' that is filling with your leaked water.
I too was suckered into this quick fix but it didnt work for me; then I spoke to a neighbour who is also a dishwaher repair man.
We removed the machine , removed both side-panels (yes its easy for a DIY), dried out the water from the bottom pan (the sensor sits in a small recess right in the middle of the bottom pan). The machine was switched on and we checked for a leak; now there are many pipes and you need to observe just where the leak is. In my case the water was pouring from a broken pipe, but worse still it was leaking right onto the mains electricity !!!!!!!
So DONT mess with bodge fixes - they may kill you!!!

Just purchased and installed the LG LDS4821 dishwasher, instantly got the OE error code when we tested it. After following troubleshooting tips and calling customer service, error code still not resolved. Hose is not kinked, hose is not clogged (as no dishes have even been washed in it), and it's level. Does anyone have any idea what we could do to fix this problem?

I have an Asco D3350 dishwasher. When the cycle starts the machine fills with water and when there appears to be the right amount of water in the machine an error code F4 shows on the panel. 3 clicks can be heard during the first 5 seconds of the F4 code showing. If I cancel the cycle and start it again it pumps out the water and then fills again and the code returns. Any ideas?

We have a Kenwood KDW8ST2A Dishwasher which is about a month old. The other day we had to pull it out from under the worktop because something rolled under it. When we put it back and went to use it later that day, we got an E1 error code appear and it's been like that since. We pulled it back out to make sure that we hadn't accidently pulled or loosened any of the pipes. We have the manual which does tell us what the error means but it doesn't tell us how to fix it. I'm sure it must be somethin

I have a similar problem to another person. The drain on the dish drawer was blocked. The unit now shows an F1 error code ( flood?) and the pump runs continuously even after I've unblocked everything. I've tried switching it off for ages and drying everything out. When I switch it on again it shows the wash programme but then reverts to F1 and the pump motor runs continuously. Any ideas to cancel the F1 code?


The flood sensor on this unit is a PC board in the base, so you would need to remove the lower drawer and dry it out under there. If the base is dry and you still have the error, you can take a look at that sensor and clean any corrosion/minerals off ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

Code F2 I just replaced the door switch on an inoperable DD-602. My top drawer was working fine, but my bottom one has been offline for a while (door switch failed and I never got around to fixing it since I had the top). Well, my top finally failed too so I replaced both switches. Looks like everything is good on the top, but my bottom is erroring with an F2 code now. Kindof makes a thumping noise as it starts the cycle -- maybe 3-5 short thumps and then a 10 second delay, repeats. Any ideas? C

We have a Kenwood KDW8ST2A dishwasher. We used to get the error code E3 (when still under warranty) and were told not to use dishwasher tablets as it generated too much foam. The problem has been intermittent but now we get the E3 error every time, no matter what program we run, or how little detergent we put in. I've a feeling its not heating up properly, is there any way to check the heating element? Is it worth attempting a repair?

There is excess moisture in the tub and on dishes after the cycle. Does not appear to be drying as it previously did. Any ideas?
