Question about Dishwashers
Posted by Anonymous on
We have discoverd xactly why and sorted this on the bottom righthand wall there is a small circular sensor which measures the water temp during the washcycle. If you cover that with a plate pan or chopping board it cannot detect when temp reaches 47 degrees c so gets stuck on 1hr 32 min in the 2hr cycle. Keep that sensor clear and it will stop.

My DW67s also did this. I assume they are very similar models. According to the instruction manual, E3 means longer than usual water heating time or water not heating.
The heating element is not like the conventional one like what resembles the element in an electric oven. Instead, the element wraps around a water pipe and heats the water while one of the pumps circulates the water. That pump can become stiff due to lack of use because of a rubber seal which can get dry and tight if not used for long periods of time. Ensure the machine is unplugged, tap is off and emptied of dish racks and water before laying it on its side. Access is via the underside cover. Simply free up the pump again by rotating it with your finger. A sensor which is screwed onto the side of the pump can be removed for finger access. If you feel much resistance in the rotation of the pump at first, then after it becomes looser, then you have probably solved the problem. If it is really jammed then perhaps you have a chicken bone or something stuck in it and requires further disassembly. If it was already freely spinning and the problem isn't solved then perhaps the water heater itself isn't working or the pump motor is burnt out or an electrical connection somewhere is faulty.

in the manual I have for this machine model E3 means: Longer heating time but not reaching requied temperature. The possible causes: malfunction of temperature sensor or of heating element

Drain pump probably not working. Put machine on cycle 7 and it should turn on the drain pump straight away. you can hear this near the bottom of the machine. if it is silent hten the pump probably needs replacing. I repaired mine be removing it and then dismantle the magnet from the tube then give it a good clean out.

Remove all dish trays from washer, unscrew and remove lid off salt softner, tip machine on side untill all water drains from the salt softner, replace all trays and softner lid and machine should work again.
