E4 is an overfill code caused by water pressure problem.

On the base of the unit - (underneath the kitchen plinth) there are 2 black plastic clip panels - each these of with a blunt knife or screw driver and turn off the appliance at the mains. In there you will see lots of wiring etc. Simply get a dish cloth and mop up any water that is in there, particularly at the back left as that is where the sensor that detects the over flow is. Its simply a rubber valve that is boyent and so lifts when water is present. then once most of the water is removed, turn on.The problem would be solved.

TO PREVENT THIS HAPPENING - when you take off the kitchen plinth you will see 2 small clear pipes in the centre - between the 2 plastic panels. These are cable tied. Simple cut the cable tie and feed the pipes out of the dishwasher - place a bowl under tehre if you whish. This will prevent overfloww water enterin the base. BE WARNED BY DOING THIS THE DISHWASHER WILL NOT HAVE ANY OVERFLOW PROTECTION CAUSING POSSIBLE DAMAGE TO KITCHEN AND APPLIANCE. My advice would be to leave it in place but try to prevent overflow - i.e rinse plates first or try a different brand of wash tablets. If it does happen then the fix is simple and you definately do not have to remove the unit as many people imply.

Right hand side nylon spring cord guide broken when cord snapped and now door return has no tension.


Searched for a nylon rope guide for a Baumatic BDW 9 but was unable to locate one. I found that many of the components for the BDW 9 also fitted the BDW 10. So I searched for the rope guide for a BDW 10 and found the correct product. Problem solved!

Our BDW 13 keeps tripping our fuse board


your cicuit is overloaded. hook the DW up to its own cicuit, or at least one that will not overload it. Circuits should not be loaded to more than 80% of their capacity. 15 Amp load no more than 12 amp.
when motors/pumps start they use the most load or power, or when your DW turns on the heat.

Error E1 comes up on dishwasher


E1 error comes up when faucet is not opened. this is shown up when it takes longer filling time.
The solution for this is to ensure that the inlet hose is not kinked or crushed.

Error mesage E4


E4 commonly means an overflow detected in the bottom over flow tray - try removing the kick board from the front of the machine - you should see 2 plastic black panels about 4 inches wide each, using a flat edged screwdriver pop the panels off and you will see the mechanics of the machine - the base is classed as the over flow tray - when water fills this tray a polystyrene float is pushed up and an E4 error code is detected - tilt the dishwasher back and allow the machine to dry out before trying it again - this should work unless the water seal around the filter basket is broken - in this case an engineer should be called to replace this part. Hope this Helps.
Thanks

I need to reset my dishwasher but don't know how!!


If it's any help then here is the link to the user manual (when you download it it applies to bdw13 as well even though it is labelled for the bdw14) http://www.baumatic.co.uk/products/discontinued-models/dishwashers/integrateddishwashers/BDW14 Best I could come up with is to try page 19 at the bottom of the "dishwasher doesn't run" section - there are two different types of reset which may do the job. Hope this helps :)
