Eurotech Dishwashers are notorious for the E1 and E4 faults. The problem is with the solenoid they use for filling the dishwasher. The problem is something called the "Venturi Effect". The Venturi Effect is the reduction in fluid pressure that results when a fluid flows through a constricted section of pipe. The fluid velocity must increase through the constriction to satisfy the equation of continuity. while its pressure must decrease due to conservation of energy. The gain in kinetic energy is balanced by a drop in pressure or a pressure gradient force. I know, a lot of big words. To put it simply, the orifice within the solenoid is smaller than the inlets and outlets. Even more simply put: Not enough water is getting into the dishwasher. It appears that Eurotech isn't like a simple washing machine that senses fluid level and then shuts off the solenoid. It seems that it's on a simple timer. Turn on the solenoid for X time then turn it off. If not enough water, send fault code. It's a design flaw and I'm not certain there are many ways around it. Just make certain that you have a good water feed to the dishwasher (no kinks, valve on completley etc.). One thing you may try is reducing the feed pressure (i.e. slightly turn down the water valve supply to the dishwasher). Doing so may diminish the venturi effect by equalizing inlet pressure, hence allowing more water into the dishwasher. It's worth a try.

Where do I place the silverware rack in the Eurotech ndishwasher


Once you load it with handles down and so the tableware won't nest too much, place it anywhere it will fit and not be blocked from getting a good spraying from the water arm that spins under the rack.

Looking for a water inlet valve for a eurotech edw154e


You can try to replace the solenoid with another dishwasher solenoid, but be prepared for some of what we call "backyard mechanics" :>) It can be done, and it will work, but it may not look pretty.

Could also be a water temp problem. If the water isn't hot enough the dishwasher will run longer as it has to heat the water. This could be your water heater turned down too low or the heating element in the dishwasher isn't working properly.
