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

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.

Dw60csx1 All the lights are on but you can't select a wash cycle to make it start

perhaps the main control board has become faulty, a technician should be able to advise.
Unplug and leave it offf overnight see if that resolves the issue.

How do I clear the error on a Fisher and Paykel DW60CSX1 error message E6

to fix essentially you need to reboot... unplug at wall - wait about 30 seconds - 1 min then replug. should reboot and be back to normal.
if you can, pull drawer out at end of cycle so condensation does not cause this problem going forward... ours does this when it's higher humidity

Samsung error E5

I don't know about a E5 error; are you sure it's not a 5E error? That means a drain error or "water not draining" error. Check the drain pump and drain hose for an obstruction. If that's okay, and the dishwasher drains water, then you probably have a bad ECS sensor.

Dishwasher stops after filling with water

there is a problem with the drain. It is not draining all the water.
1. The drain hose could be too high.
2. There is a plugged pipe

Kenmore dishwasher 461.14352 is giving me an E5 error message, which I think means a fault with the temperature sensor. Where is the temperature sensor, and is this something I can fix myself?

This code means the washer is telling you it didn't heat the water. This likely means the heating element is burned out. You should call someone to repair this as it's not likely something you can repair yourself.

What dose e5 mean on my dishwasher

Hello tom.... e5 is a drain error - machine is not draining - check drain hoses. If your trap under the sink is blocked, or even if your garbage disposal is blocked, interfering with the proper draining of the machine, you will get this error.

Another cause is often a blockage or a partial blockage somewhere between the machine's drain pump and the sink trap. To check this remove the lower front panel on the machine [usually just 4 phillips head screws need to be removed], and then disassembe the drain hose from the pump in the lower front of the machine. Also unscrew the pump from the frame and physically check it for debris, sometimes even a chunk of glass or bone.

Once you locate and remove the blockage, and reassemble everything, the machine should work once again. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

I have bought a fisher and paykel model DW60CSX1 second hand... i have connected all the relevant pipes and taps, the washer gets to a point in the cycle where it stops and thw 1st, 2nd and 4th lights...

My manual says that this means the drain hose is crimped or bent, or the drain hose is too high. In other words, the drain can't drain for some reason.
