find out how the dishwasher is set up to drain. Pour water into dishwasher 4 or 5 gallons, see if water disappears. if so, your drain is ran wrong

May be that there was a little regular soap or something put in that made it suds up causing it not to drain. Vegetable oil poured into the dish washer tub will remove the suds. After running vegetable oil for about 5 minutes, pour 2 cups of vinegar in to the tub and run it on the hottest longest cycle with no dishes in it. This will clean the residue out and what ever "gunk" may be in the internal parts. Use Only powder detergent. No gel and No tabs. These 2 cause a build-up over a period of time of use and reduce the performance of your machine. This should take care of your problem.

in this case e5 means too much water in the machine when it is supposed to rinse.
these machines have either a solenoid opperated drain valve or a drain pump.
could be a kinked or pluged drain hose. check this by removing the drain hose (probably red) from the drain it attaches to (probably under a sink)
put the hose in the sink or bucket and wait for it to drain, drain should be fairly powerful (hold the hose and be careful the water is hot)
if the hose is not kinked and little or no water comes out you have likley have an obstructed drain valve or a broken pump or solenoid.
at this point i would call in the pros, or you can try to fix it yourself then curse and wish you had called the pros.
