SOURCE: SHOWING E3 ON DISHWASHER

Had the same problem (apart from the code) and the answer is to stop putting plastic in the machine ! It seems the dishwashers need the heat radiated from the Ceramic plates, stell knives etc to help dry. The plastic simply absorbs some water and then your dishwahser spends most of its drying time trying to get that water out again. Also Plastic doesn't radiate any heat to help. As soon as we stopped putting plastic plates and tupperware containers in, hey presto the dishes are drying again

What is fault E3?


E3 means that the heating element is operating when it should not be doing so. It may be caused by an older, weaker element that is taking too long to heat the water or the thermostat may be giving incorrect readings. Ensure you are using hot water to fill the machine (if tied to your faucet water supply, run the water until it is hot before starting the dishwasher). Information from the Belling manual:

If the heating element is still heating after the allowed time, then the control board will advance the programme to next step and at the end of the washing cycle the alarm buzzer will sound for 30 sec and the display will show E3.

When the control board detects that the heating element is operating during a non heating step or during the internal test the heating circuit is found to be open circuit then the alarm buzzer will sound for 30 sec and the control board will cease all functions except for the drain cycle which will run for 90 seconds and then E3 will be displayed on the control panel.

Kenwood KDW 243A Dishwasher has an E3 fault and will not wash the dishes, can you tell me what is causing this please? Thank you


The error (E3) relates to the water heating but not reaching the required temperature. This can be due to a couple of things generally. The sensor which detects the water temperature can be faulty or the heater element itself is faulty and not heating the water to a high enough temperature. I think it's needing to be replaced.

Check to see if there is a thermostat screwed up into the underside of the tub on the rear right side. If there is, test the thermostat to see if it's open circuit, if it is you'll need to change it.

Hi - have a kenwood KDW125L3A and is showing error E3 - help please. Ricardo


E3 is a temperature error. There are two thermostats,90 degrees and 78 degrees. This requires removal of the ride side of themachine to access. The other signal for the E3 error is the heating elementitself. If the water isn't heating at all, either the element or the 90 degreestat is faulty. You can change both and none of it is difficult to change for amoderately competent.

E3 showing on Kenwood model KDW243A


E3 means longer heating time. Usually this indicates the heater element has failed.

Kenwood dishwasher Comes up E3


I do not know the Kenwood dishwasher, hence I do not know what the E3 error is, but many dishwashers require a sustained pressure of at least 30 psi.
Can you please post the model number of your Kenwood dishwasher?
