The E1 error code indicates a water inlet error. Do you still have your manual to test for this?

Operation of machine wash, rinse, spin


at the end of the wash does it empty ok it needs to before it can move on to take on water for the rinses if it doesn't check the pump is not blocked if it does empty the issue may be water valve for cold water also on the wash cycle does the machine heat up if not it will just sit there washing forever

All my clean dishes have a coating of salt


Check that you rinse aid and dish washing salt is full, it could be that you didn't pack the unit correctly and that one of the propellers got hooked on a dish or something, if not put it on full heat and put only a few items in and see what happens

Dishes are not always dry, even after sitting overnight


hi

make sure you are using rinse aid as this helps to evaporate the water at the end of the cycle in the drying stage. I know tablets have rinse aid built into the tablet but this can wash away on some wash cycles and do nothing so even if you are using tablets i reccommend still using rinse aid.

I have a Kenwood KDW12SL3A and have used it about 5 times and now it flashes up E1 near the end of the program. What can I do?


i had an e4 error and after lookin itup i tilted it forward after i done this i got an e1 error after playing about for a bit and checkin all hose's and connection , i came to the conclusion it was an air lock so i put on a 8min rinse mode and when it counted down to 7 mins paused it and toped up the bottom of the dish washer with boiling water from the keetle and started the rinse again. straight away you could hear the air lock movein once rinse mode fininshed i put onto a 2hr 36 min wash and is workin fine now. so make sure your machine is level and try this it may work

Will fill but not wash or spin


Does the motor run?  Does the water get pumped out at the end of wash cycle or during the rinse cycle or when you turn the dial by hand to the end of a cycle?  If the water gets pumped out then the motor is OK but the clutch is not working.  If the motor is not running then that is the problem.  If the water fills and then nothing happens (the dial does not turn by itself) the timer is bad.  If the timer is bad but you turn it by hand the other actions (wash, rinse, etc. should work indicating no problems with motor and clutch).

Can you see water in the drum ?,No water = no action Check water supply

If there is water in the drum does it drain out at some point.

Sequence = Fill, Agitate, Heat, Wash, Drain, Spin etc.

If it fills then it may be a belt has snapped and the drum cannot turn , need to take the covers off to look.

Remove power before taking covers off !!!!

If the belt is OK then it may be the heater which has gone open circuit, try a cold wash or a rinse cycle to test that.

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

Water Softner Dispense wont empty - Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 HE3t


I'm sure you heard a small motor running from time to time during a cycle. That moves an "arm" which sends water to the different chambers during a cycle. Fabric softener is dispensed when water goes to that chamber and dilutes the fabric softener. That chamber then empties by a siphoning action.
If you want to narrow down the problem a little to help trouble shoot -- put some wet rags in and run the Rinse and Spin cycle with some fabric softener. If the softener is not dispensed, then you know that the water isn't being sent to that chamber properly.
If you are intrepid enough to take the top off your washer, do that and see if the arm appears to be moving during a normal cycle. Maybe the arm got dislodged or broken during the move.
If water isn't being diverted properly, I think this calls for a real repair person.
