"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 centre there is a polystyrene float. This is what activates the overflow switch which throws the error code.
This probelm 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

E4 Error on other machines (eg. Baumatic) means that the bottom catch tray (condensate trap) below the machine has too much water in it. This condensate is supposed to evaporate away, but too much will mean it builds up over a period of time. There is a float that trips a microswitch in my Baumatic which detects this, it only needs 2 - 3mm of water before the microswitch is activated.
If this is the problem with your machine (try it annd see), there are several solutions posted in forums - best seems to be to remove plastic access hole caps from base and mop out the tray with sponge. TURN OFF AT MAINS BEFORE POKING AROUND INSIDE THE BASE. May have to repeat at regular intervals to.
What causes it ? - I think it is excess condensate from steam inside the wash cabinet, follow the manufacturers advice to open the door as soon as the wash cycle has ended to release as much steam as possible to stop it condensing inside the machine.
Peramnent solution ? - I don't think possible - My guess is it's just a bad design.

holding the button for four seconds will not do it, you have to hold it until the light stops blinking and
will go back to normal, normall takes more than four seconds to unlock the unit, this is something
the sears repair techs know becouse the are trained on all this things but, they will not share this things, becouse thats how they make money
