Having problems with your Kenwood KDW243A Builtin Dishwasher ?

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?

I have a Bosch dishwasher (SMI5072), bought in 2005 second-hand but working OK. It has always been a little slow to get going, and I had initially thought the clockwork program dial was getting stuck. Then I concluded that it had something to do with the filling up process, and I thought it must be because the water was rather cold and paid no more attention to it. This has meant that it seemingly takes ages to get through a cycle. Yesterday I put it on, left it and got on with some work. An h
