Re: ERROR CODE E6 ON BELLING IDW604 DISHWASHER
The E6 can also indicate a drain system that isclogged or restricted. Anything that might cause the water to take toolong to drain from the tub will cause a failure code to appear.Included in this is mineral buildup on the interior of the pumpassembly, particularly around the filter assembly in the upper pump.Use of products like Dishwasher Magic willreduce these buildups and assure a clean pump system. Steer clear ofgel detergents and only use powder or tablets in the dishwasher.

1-Time Flash & E6 error troubleshooting, part 2 of 3 for Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating - Duration: 2 ...
I had the same problem after replacing the white panel on my Bosch SHE45M02UC with a stainless panel. I got the C6 error code. I called Bosch customer service twice and neither rep was helpful. One guy told me he didn't know what the C6 code meant. He suggested that I call a local appliance repair guy and he would know what the code meant. I replied, you mean to tell me you work for the manufacturer of the dishwasher and don't know what the error code stands for but a local repair guy that doesn't work for Bosch does?
After all this frustration, I took the panels off and tested the dishwasher with no buttons. It worked fine! Turns out, each identical button isn't identical. Each one is labeled A-G. After putting it back together, no more C6 code! On a side note, try reseting the dishwasher. With the dishwasher on and door closed, hold down the cancel/reset buttons for 5 seconds and release. The disher should drain and reset.

I had a similar thing. Every time I went to
start the dishwasher it went "Ding Ding". I could press every button,
turn it on and off OK, change cycles etc. I guessed the sound maybe because it
thought the door was open, so set to work pulling it apart. This is how I fixed
Make sure you do most of this with the power off - there is probably mains
After pulling off the the cover of the door (with the door open, undo about a
dozen screws), the front will fall off if you don't hold on to it, and the door
swing closed, so be careful. When it has detached, move the metal part aside,
and place the "brains" (circuit board etc) on to a chair or similar
so the wires don't stretch.
A quick way to see if you have the problem is the same as mine is to remove the
orange cable from the PCB as per below:
Turn the power back on, and press the power button, then the play button,
things will hopefully work. If they do, turn it off right away and continue as
per below to fix. If you are not worried about the safety mechanism - you could
just leave it off and put things back together. However if you forget I think
the entire kitchen could get very wet!
Reconnect the orange cable, and start by removing the handle. You will need to
disconnect the cable block going in to the back of the handle mechanism, and
remove the 3 screws as shown:
Once you have the handle off, remove the metal cover. I found I had to slide it
down at an angle and back, ie:
With that off, you should then be able to carefully edge out the reed switch -
this is the source of the problem. In the image below the arrow point to TWO
hooks that need to be released as you slide it out. I found that the hooks got
stuck on the seam as well, so go slowly.
Once you have the reed switch out, you can see if the local electronics shop
has one the same (probably the best long term fix), or if you pry it apart, I
lightly scraped the contacts inside it:
Once this was done, I could put the handle back together and test (I tested
before putting the whole front back on). With a screw driver you can put the
mechanism back to "close" the door, and things should hopefully work.
Or to "open" the door, pull the handle, and use the screw driver to
pull it the rest of the way, ie:
Once you are happy it is all working, put everything back together and things
should hopefully be away!
Whenyou took the door apart did you take note of how so you can reverse the proceedure Sorry it is difficult to explane in words on how to put a door together all I can say is try placeing the panels from the top down and bottom up then if anything works put in all the screws halfway then after all the screws are in then tighten them as evenly as possible
I had a LG certified repairman come out and fix. The electrical wires within the door were melted into the "tar" (sound deafening spray) and one wire actualy sheered. Apparently the drying cycle heats the tar and the wires become embeded and melt into the tar. This is what was causing the error code. After the wire was tested and spliced everything worked great. Long term...The door/electrical harness was replaced by LG.
I had the same problem with my Bosch dishwasher.I came to this web site to find out how to get the door off.I took the experts advice,placed 4 pillows on the floor in fromt,opened the door,took out the screws and the front panel dropped down.It was so easy,the plastic spacers stayed in place.I put a little J B weld on the handle screws and tighted the handle and put everything back together,12 minutes tops.Thanks for the help,thankful in Georgia
