Re: E3 - Non Release of Tablet

The E3 code means - Longer heating time.Not reaching required temp. Cause - Malfunction of temp. sensor or heating element. Good luck !

When our Neff dishwasher has completed a cycle most of the tablet is still in the open dispenser. Can you advise ?

Check and clean both spray arms.
make sure nothing is restricting the movements of the arms. Have you selected the correct programme? Quick wash may not always dissolve tablets, you may need to put the tablet straight into cutlery basket at start of quick wash programme

My gorenje GV62110 dishwasher now has a fault code E3 and after the dishwasher finishes its cycle the tablet is still in its holder

it's the heating element or the temperature sensor that is not working correctly.

KITCHENAID DW KUDS30FXSS - 18 months old, will not complete cycles. Runs for 15 mins and stops & lights go out. Cleaning tablet often left in dispensor.

See my problem and solution. Sounds like you, too, are having a problem with the main control board (computer chip that controls the dishwasher), which is apparently a common problem with this model dishwasher. The part can be found here, for $211 (tax + shipping), and they have a 30-day return policy in the event that it does not fix the problem. It's an easy DIY fix. Hopefully this helps!

Tablet release

These use a wax solenoid to release which can fail, Sometimes you can just replace the dispenser but they can also damage the machine electronics.

Dshwasher tablet wnt come ut and dshes very wet

The detergent tablet dispenser door is energized by a solenoid wired directly to timer control board. The drawer will normally open releasing the tablet when the machine starts filling.

If the Drawer does not release the tablet, then either dispenser solenoid is faulty, or timer board mast be replaced.

If the machine is functional but does not release, then the technician will probably need to replace the detergent table dispenser solenoid, that often is built in with dispenser assembly.

You can call support ringing the number listed at the end of the owners manual.

Tablet falls out & doesn't dissolve especially on fast cycle

Hi and wlecome...
You should not use anything other than powered dishwasher detergent in these products. They are not designed for tablet-style detergents. The reason is because the dispenser does not "open" during the wash cycle like you would see on a conventional dishwaser. The incoming water pours over the detergent and releases the mixture out the bottom of the dispenser. If you need a user guide, you can get one here:

Appliance runs through complete cycle without heat or tablet release

if the element looks fine it still could have gone faulty inside,test this with a multimeter for being open circuit, there are also thermal cut outs to test, these can also cause the machine not to warm up, you cant tell by looking sorry the tablet box may not release because with no heat the programme will not advance to that part
