Question about Baumatic 23 in. BDW13 Built-in Dishwasher
I have a baumatic bdw 15 built in dishwasher. e4 is showing up. the overflow tray is still bone dry. i cannot tilt the machine to drain it due to how it is built in. please help!!
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.
