Question about Kenwood KDW12ST3A Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

What do the selt test codes on my Kenwood Dishwasher Mean?

I have fix my dishwasher a couple of times so far- E4 - leaking waste hose, E3 - Ecesive limescale build up causing heating to teak to long, and replaced the door catch. But the latest is now it wont let me select a program!, I have run the built in self test where the display starts at 18 and counts down, it gets stuck on test number 10. I can't find out anywhere what these test results mean. I tried emailing Kenwood which is when I found out it was actually a Curry's brand not the main stream brand I initially thought. Can any one point me in the direction of what these self test codes codes mean?

SOURCE: Error code E4 is on

Error code E4 means there is an overflow. Water is probably trapped. If you get error code E4, just tilt the machine back about 45 degrees and let the water drain out. It should come out on both sides. Then, you should be good to go.

It means it is not heating the water enough. The manual says.. Longer heating time but not reaching required temperature. The possible causes: malfunction of temperature sensor or of heating element

E4 showing on the panel KDW60X10


The Kenwood KDW60X10 shows the E4 code when there is a water leak or a problem with the float switch (or it's PCB board connection). This could be a leak at the tank, the hose, or that the drain pump's anti-flooding system has been tripped.

Disconnect the dishwasher from power and the water line. Look for signs of a water leak under the unit. If the hose is leaking, you may be able to replace or reseat the drain hose. (Also make sure that there are no kinks in the hose.) Note: sometimes the leak is in the plastic where the drain hose connects to the dishwasher. That is harder to fix.

If the tank is leaking, replace the entire unit. For the other possible problems, you should consult a repair tech to narrow down the issue. Float switches are easy enough to replace; the PCB board and the anti-flooding system are not as easy to reset.

The manual for your dishwasher is available here: http://www.partmaster.co.uk/company/partmaster/manuals/Kenwood%20KDW60X10.pdf .

I hope this helps.

My Kenwood KDW243A built in dishwasher is desplaying what I assume is an error code, E3. What does this mean? The washer is not washing properly.

Kenwood dishwasher Comes up E3


I do not know the Kenwood dishwasher, hence I do not know what the E3 error is, but many dishwashers require a sustained pressure of at least 30 psi.
Can you please post the model number of your Kenwood dishwasher?

Sounds as though the drain is blocked partially. E4 is the overfill code. Try cleaning out the drain.

Kenwood Slimline Dishwasher KDW8ST2A


I have a Kenwood Kdw8st2a and have been constantly plagued by the E4 overfill error.

Lifting the front of the dishwasher and tilting it backwards seemed to clear the E4 error only for it to come back after the next wash.

I found eventually that the connection to the U bend under the sink was too narrow and was almost blocked hence the dishwasher was not emptying properly.

I disconnected the dishwasher waste pipe and ran the waste into a bucket for about 6 cycles and it worked fine.

Eventually drilled through the kitchen wall and fitted a lower direct waste pipe to the drain. Overkill maybe buit it hasn't done an E4 since.
