Question about Dishwashers
The DW60 manual shows the following possible meanings for the E5 fault code:
-Water tap not turned on.
-Insufficient water pressure
-Water supply hose is crimped or bent
-Drain hose is too low
For more info on fault codes, consult the manual. If you don't have one, here's a link http://www.fisherpaykel.com.au/admin/pdfs/pdf_usecares/599350D_DW60ugm_AUSGw.pdf

On this and some other F & P dishwashers, the E5 fault will come up because the smarts on the dishwasher are expecting it to fill within a certain time period. If it doesn't, it throws this code. Apart from what the manual says could be some of the causes, you can make it happen all by yourself by putting the filter back in the wrong way! I am not sure exactly what happens when the filter is refitted incorrectly, but it seems to impede the flow of incoming water just enough for the computer to have a hissy fit and tell you the machine is not filling quickly enough. I know, because after I spent two hours checking and looking at all of the usual suspects I checked and cleaned the filter, noting that it didn't seem oriented the way it had been the day before, and once I put it back in the right way, problem gone.
