    exact same problem. tilt to the side worked but a bit further investigation revealed that the connection tube to the top washer was faulty, the thread on the plastic connector had stripped.
    solution was to either order a new feeder tube (at the rear of the machine) and fit it or remove the spacer inside the machine washing area and re-screw the collar on.

    I can confirm that this worked straight away for me. Not actually that much water came out. Mine's a Sanyo, but it seems the majority of these cheap ones share the same componentry. Good result.

Error code 004 is caused by water being present in the bottom tray of the machine. There is not supposed to be any water there but if there is any the float switch is triggered. Get rid of the water source and the problem is fixed. On my machine the leak was in the feed pipe to the upper dish tray. I replaced the feed pipe and problem solved. Water could be leaking somewhere else however so you will have to find and fix the leak.

    Exactly the same problem - error 004 in Faber dishwasher. Leaning the dishwasher to the right fixed the problem.

Simple fix for me
Simply look at right side of machine get a flash light pull the insulation away from machine stick the light in look for the white little resovoir and the styrofoam float switch.
syphon the 1/2 cup collection this allows the float in the attached
cup to drop kicking the sensor out....
I dont suggest disconnection the sensor as im sure it will come back to haunt you. =)

worked for me takes 5 minutes

I have a euroart ds9000 dishwasher and after much frustration with the flashing 004 error i discovered the best way to fix it was to pull the dishwasher from the hole and lean it to the right and all the water drains onto the floor a messy solution i know. But after holding it on the angle whilst it was turned on as the water drained out the beeping stopped i then stood it back level turned it on and off and it was fixed . hope this helps. dishwasher crusader

    worked for me also thank you,, i was about to go buy new machine ,not any more thank you guys


I also had the same problem and I can confirm that leaning the dishwasher to the right fixes the problem. Lay a towel down first to catch the mess.

Exact same problem here - Danby support say's is an "overflow problem", the dishwasher is not draining properly. I disconnected the drainage tubes & theres absolutely nothing in the way. Fortunately, mine is a week old and I bought it as Costco. I will return it.

How do I fix error code 004-332

That error code signifies a developer home position sensor error. Can you move the carousel by hand? It also may be that a toner is leaking and has spilled onto the home position sensor.

I have just changed the drum cartridge on my DocuPrint C525A printer and i have this message: 004-321 Reboot Printer. I have turned the printer on and off but nothing changes. I looked through the manual...

004-321 is a TR0 error, which means the accumulator belt could not find the beginning of belt mark.
The belt is part of the Drum Cartridge. Replace/Reseat the drum cartridge and reset printer, this should correct the problem

This type of error code implies that you need to restart the printer again. However, do check to see if toner cartridges are seated in the proper position. Also ensure that they have been locked in.

Danby dishwasher E3 error

Same issue here so I just got off the phone with Danby. They said the E3 means the water is not hot enough when it goes into the machine. Now I dont know your guys situation but I let the water run hot until I cant touch it anymore, then I turn on the machine and plug it in. So it sounds like the heating mechanism is not working properly and does not heat the water to the appropriate temp to continue with the cycle. I will say that their support was really friendly and she informed me that since it was purchased less than a year ago it would be covered under the warranty. She gave me the number of a local repair shop. Lets just hope they dont tell me nothing is wrong with it because my water temp is fine. I will let ya guys know. Here is the number for Danby that I called. General office: 419-425-5052. Good Luck!
