"E4" code relates to the overflow detector There appears to be an internal sump. Lean the machine back about 35-45 degrees to remove the excess water from the dishwasher. It might be messy so be prepared. By design the sump collects water from condensation i.e. (Cold outside machine wall, hot inside machine wall) hence condensation builds up and is suppose to and should evaporate in the right environment. Placement and installation locations play into a big part of the design.
You will notice by observation just in the center there is a polystyrene float. This is what activates the overflow switch which throws the error code.
This problem is simple to fix, just take off your kitchen plinth and turn off the dish washer power. then at the base of the dishwasher there are 2 plastic clip access panels, take a blunt screw driver or knive to help you ease out the plastic panel. once this is off, simple take a dish cloth out mop out the water, particularly from the left hand side as this is where the sensor is. Once dry (ish) replace the panels and switch on - DONE! its that easy

Hi... I just bought Electrolux Dishwasher ESF2433W. When i first time turn it on, light at "Normal" button keep on flashing with beeping sound. After checking the trouble shooting manual, it actually refer...


E4 Overflow

Sometimes during trasport it is possible that styrofoam float mechanicaly activated overflow microswitch. So, you should check complitely overflow system.

At any time, if overflow micro-switch act and keep for longer than 2 seconds, the E4 would occur. When E4 occurs, the drain pump will run until flowmeter keep motionless for 2 minutes (if the model with the pressure switch (83/63),drain pump would run till the pressure switch reset and continue draining for 60 seconds.) and all the other components will be stopped immediately. At the same time, the buzzer will alarm for 30 seconds and error 4 will be shown. Note: Priority level of E4 is the highest. E4 operation is valid after other error operations have done. When E4 operation has done, all the others are invalid.

What is code E4


E4 means the overflow sensor has activated.

Under the washer is a pan - with a sensor. If it gets any sort of water - it activates.
You can remedy this issue by pulling out the dishwasher, and tilting it up to about a 45 degree angle to empty the catch pan.

This should solve your problem.

E4 error code comes up when you turn on dishwasher


Hello.

This code means an error code. That the
dishwasher electronic control has detected a condition it needs to check. When you see a code, follow these steps to solve the problem:
  • Press "Stop/Clear" to clear the display and stop the beeping if any.
  • Reprogram the dishwasher.
  • If the code still displays, turn off the power to the dishwasher at your breaker box and wait five minutes and clean all part (area) that are open to water carefully before turning it back on.
Thanks for using fixya.

Glasses and frying pans not clean at end of cycle. Residue on glasses and cups,food particles on frying pans.


it's generally not a good idea to put really greasy items in a dishwasher along with relatively clean items such as glassware and plates and cutlery, as most recent good quality dishwashers come with a soil sensor that ends the wash cycle once the dishes appear clean, and all the grease from your frying pan will cause the soil sensor to take longer to detect clean water.

E4 code on dishwasher


Hi

Sorry, I still don't know what the problem is. I've been washing up by hand! Looks like I will have to call an engineer out at some point .... I'd better save some money :-)

OK - sorted it finally!

If you, like me, had actually added water thinking that this would rinse the machine through... doh! you had inadvertantly made water fill the cavity at the bottom of the maching. This is situated behind the kick-board. There are 2 black plastic panels - if you remove these, (they just pop out) and sponge out the water that is activating the dip switch (there is a polystirene float) that activates the pump - this resolves the E4 error code.

Make sure you do it while the machine is off! The reason the base of the machine has filled with water may need further investigation, but mine was most definitely user error. Who'd of thought adding water to a dishwasher could have been so fatal! It nearly cost me £88 call out charge too after the helpline weren't able to help me.

Integrated dishwasher DW009,


If this is an asko dishwasher , most times this problem is caused by water getting into the base pan and setting off the float switch. Turn off the power and take the toe kick off, behind there is a pan runs under the motor and sump if there is water in it clean it out. that will take care of the problem. but you will need to watch and see if you can tell where the water came from sometimes on those unit its just from too much detergent

The E4 code means - Overfilled. To much inlet water. Remove water manually from the tank pan and try operating a new cleaning cycle. Good luck !
