Question about Smeg Dishwashers

1 Answer

E3 Error Hi My dishwasher is showing error E3, which the user manual states "The appliance is not able to pump out the water.", however, other E3 error states a heating issue. The dishwasher does in fact heat the water but generates the E3 error after 10 minutes or so, then pumps out the water from the dishwasher. I'm a little confused as to what the issue is here and what part I would need to rectify the problem. Any advise you could give would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Lee

The E3 error is a result of water temperature not getting to a nominal value within a particular time. This could be caused by several factors like heater faulty, wash pump not working well, wash arms not circulating water as required. Need model number to help you further pin point if possible.

Refer this site for 60 inch dishwasher and this site for 45 inch ones.

    Hi Sam, sorry I thought I added the model, it's DF612FAS. The water is getting very hot but there's no pumping/cleaning occurring during the heating of the water. Does that help?

  • Sam Jan 02, 2013

    Most likely the thermostat or the heater itself is faulty. You may need to contact service technician. The controller might be waiting for the thermostat (temperature sensor) to tell it the water temperature but it is not receiving it, so does not pump the water for washing. The parts are not easy to replace.

SOURCE: error code AO1

Error message A01 means -Acqua stop operated due to a leak or overfill. Check if there is still water in the machine after it stop pumping. In case you still have water - your problem is with the pump or with a blockage drain line. If there is no water in the machin, it might be a water level sensor issue - stuck physically in the high level position or become defective. Try to reduced the water presure and leveled it up by the water entrance tap to the machine, it might solve your problem. Goog luck !!

If you are still trying to sort out this issue try the following.

From what you say then it is most likely the aqua sensor on the side of the dishwasher. The gurgling sounds that you hear are likely the drain pump running and the un-drainable water sloshing in the sump.

Verify that there is actually water going to the dishwasher( Basic step but often overlooked)

Next the inlet valve will have to be checked. This is the part where the water line from the house connects to the dishwasher, under the toe/kick panel. Remove power from the dishwasher. Disconnect the dishwasher electrical connections (2 wires) to the inlet valve and connect it (carefully to 110 V power) using a jumper wire. With 110V power the valve should open and water will flow into the dishwasher, if not then the fault is in the inlet valve.

If this checks fine then the fault is likely in the aqua sensor...

On the outer left side (viewed from front) there is a panel, Behind this panel there is a small clear(of light blue) plastic mechanism with hoses and wires attached( There is usually a yellow disk at the top about 6cm in diameter) this is a float and sensor assembly there is tells the control the water level and works as an emergency drain if there is an issue. There will be a red stick protruding downward to the base and a Styrofoam float on which the stick rests. This is a pan overflow sensor if the stick is too high the unit will go into drain and cut off the fill valve power. The yellow disk is a diaphragm which senses water height. This unit can become stuck with wear and hard water.

SOURCE: Dishwasher not pumping water

Hi, I have an ASKO 1606 and it stopped turning on. This happened after the sink drain got blocked. All that would happen when switched on was the sound of the pump trying to pump water out. I opened up the panel on the back and found the tray inside full of water. As I started scooping the water out I heard what sounded like a switch clicking on and off. I think there must be a safety float switch or something. Once the water in the tray was cleared everything worked fine again. No more hand washing dishes!! WOOHOO

SOURCE: F4 error fisher & paykel nautilus dishwasher

F4 is a heating error- dishwasher has not reached temperature in allocated time. If intermittent fault, problem is usually with electronic board, which has temperature sensor attached. Sometimes the wiring to the control board burns out and can give intermittent false readings causing F4 error. Disconnect from power, remove front panel (4 screws down each side). You can now see wiring going to control board- check for burnt wires. Also check temperature sensor (small square with two purple wires) is stuck to inner door panel- if this is not stuck to inner panel, temperature sensor will not work properly. If in any doubt, call in the experts!!

Bosch dishwasher doesn't work. water not coming


Hi Gilgol, The link below is a Bosh Dishwasher list of error codes, I believe your error code is E3....CHEERS..
http://removeandreplace.com/2015/10/09/bosch-dishwasher-error-codes-how-to-clear-what-to-check/
Bosch Dishwasher Error Code E3
Fault Condition: Not filling with water
Repair or Check: If the water supply cut-off valve on the dishwasher is completely open but the dishwasher will not fill with water then shut off the water supply and unplug the dishwasher. Remove the water fill line and check to see if the water inlet screen valve is plugged up. If so then replace the water valve. Cleaning the screen can make the issue worse so always replace if the screen is clogged. The valve can get stuck open from gunk and therefore flood or overfill.

How do i replace a wash pump in electrolux dishwasher ewdw6505g80


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I understand that your want to replace the pump inside of your Electrolux dishwasher. From my understanding an "E3" error code is an issue with your wash motor. It could be a problem with the wash motor, wash motor hall sensor, or control panel. In any case these intricate parts do require precision and patience, therefore when replacing the exchange of electrical components or removing them from your appliance, I always suggest seeking professional assistance. One must be very careful as these replacements can lead to potential harm. -Chris

My dishwasher gives an E3 error


The E3 error code is not a defined error for this dishwasher. If you are sure it is E3 then best option is to give the controller a reset. This is done by


Press the Delay Start + Normal + Power keys at the same time for two seconds to enter Service Inspection Mode.
- "ALL" is displayed for the first three (3) seconds and then "t1" is displayed.

Press OFF at this stage. Do not attempt to run the inspection as this could damage the dishwasher unless you are familiar with the what each mode does.
If the Error E3 keeps coming back then call the Samsung technician.

Error code E3 on Samsung DMS500TRW dishwasher


3E error in Samsung dishwashers normally relates to high temperature error. This means the dishwasher is detecting over 80deg C water temperature. However if it is 5E that means drain error. If your dishwasher is draining correctly then please check the error again.

Hi - have a kenwood KDW125L3A and is showing error E3 - help please. Ricardo


E3 is a temperature error. There are two thermostats,90 degrees and 78 degrees. This requires removal of the ride side of themachine to access. The other signal for the E3 error is the heating elementitself. If the water isn't heating at all, either the element or the 90 degreestat is faulty. You can change both and none of it is difficult to change for amoderately competent.
