I had the same problem and changed the two thermostats on the base and got it working. You can get them from partmasters.co.uk (thermostat protector) cost 17.99. They just screw in and are dead easy to fit

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.

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

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.
