It might sound simple but did you call for service ? They might inform you on that problem. They will tell you the consequences if you wait or ignore the error. Sorry for this not instant solution reply but I thought it is better you give a call before the dishwasher actually stop working although it might not. Good luck!

Hi bonnie. I have been installing appliances for 40 years. Shame on the technician and the dealer who advised you to put money into a 16 year old appliance. This is what I recommend. Tell that dealer that you never should have allowed them to repair a 16 year old machine. Tell them you want your money back. Then watch for a great sale, Sears for instance has a great sale right now. Get your best price and then go back to your old dealer and see if they will match it or beat it.

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Model EIDW6305GSI error code 03 comes on after about an hour after cycle starts could anybody tell me why this happens thanks

Good Morning steven hutchings, thanks for your inquiry!

I understand that your Electrolux dishwasher is displaying an error code 03. Normally, error code 03 means an issue with the wash motor, wash motor hall sensor, or control panel. I would suggest performing a reset on your dishwasher that could help clear any false error codes. You can reset your dishwasher by flipping the household circuit breaker in the off position for ten minutes. If you continue to have an issue with your dishwasher displaying an error code 03, I would recommend having a professional technician come out and properly diagnosis your dishwasher. This will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

How do I find out the error codes?

Good Afternoon Delia Collins, thank you for your post!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is flashing an "ER" error code on the panel. Typically, the "ER" stands for an error code sometimes to help clear out a false error code you can perform a reset on your dishwasher. In order to do that you would need to disconnect power from your dishwasher for approximately ten minutes.

If you continue to experience an issue with the error code I would recommend contacting a technician for proper repairs. The technician will be able to properly diagnosis your dishwasher and this will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

My kenmore dishwasher not working code f4e1 came on

I checked the website, and according to them, it is a 'motor communication issue.' In order to get more details, you have to create a login, and it was taking forever to complete that, so I gave up.

Try flipping the circuit breaker, leave it off for 1 minute, then turn it on again. Do you still get the error code?

Okay, I finally completed the sign-up process. Here is some more info from an actual repair technician:

The F4E1 is a code that signifies a WASH MOTOR
issue. Specifically, no Communication. This is usually caused by: A loose connection in Wash Motor Circuit, Motor Communication Circuit and/or an open wash motor. 1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power. 2. Check all connections in Wash/Rinse Circuit and Motor Communications Circuit with meter. Fix/replace an open connection/part. Motor fuse on control open. 1. Start Service Diagnostics Cycle using keypad and advance through the error code intervals to interval 19. ( shown on image below ) 2. Listen for 2 relay contact clicks at the start of interval 19 (to confirm both the pilot and motor relays are turning on.

NOTE : These relays provide power to the motor, but the motor does not start until it receives a start command later in the cycle). If hear only 1 or zero clicks and wash motor does not come on later in service cycle, and there were no loose wire communication wire connection when checked above, then unplug dishwasher or disconnect power and replace control.

Faulty wash motor. 1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power. 2. Use inspection mirror to inspect for water leakage and/or overheating on the wash motor. If evidence of overheating exists, replace wash motor. If evidence of moisture exists, check seals and hoses.f you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

How to fix leak in miele dish washer g1202 svi has F70 fault and small leak into catch pan

The reason the pump keeps running when F70 fualt appears is that the water leak circuit has tripped which causes the dishwasher controller to empty the dishwasher to avoid flooding of the motor and pump area.

The sources of leaks could be many, to start with hoses and water inlet valve. If you feel you can handle such repairs then go ahead otherwise call a technician.

Make sure the mains power is turned off when you are working with the dishwasher internals.

Before calling service technician, open following link for troubleshooting resources, including possible manual, and Rheem chat.

The remote control might give you an error code. Error code is a starting point for troubleshoot.

Error messages on a EuroTech EDW154E dishwasher??

Eurotech Dishwashers are notorious for the E1 and E4 faults. The problem is with the solenoid they use for filling the dishwasher. The problem is something called the "Venturi Effect". The Venturi effect is the reduction in fluid pressure that results when a fluid flows through a constricted section of pipe. The fluid velocity must increase through the constriction to satisfy the equation of continuity. while its pressure must decrease due to conservation of energy. The gain in kinetic energy is balanced by a drop in pressure or a pressure gradient force. I know, a lot of big words. To put it simply, the orifice within the solenoid is smaller than the inlets and outlets. Even more simply put: Not enough water is getting into the dishwasher. It's a design flaw and I'm not certain there are many ways around it. Just make certain that you have a good water feed to the dishwasher (no kinks, valve on completley etc.). One thing you may try is reducing the feed pressure (i.e. slightly turn down the water valve supply to the dishwasher). Doing so may diminish the venturi effect by equalizing inlet pressure. It's worth a try.
