It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Check if motor spins. In case it spins, the problem is with the pump ,in case it doesn't spin it could be a motor problem or a motor and pump problem. Good luck

SOURCE: Danby dishwasher E3 error
Same issue here so I just got off the phone with Danby. They said the E3 means the water is not hot enough when it goes into the machine. Now I dont know your guys situation but I let the water run hot until I cant touch it anymore, then I turn on the machine and plug it in. So it sounds like the heating mechanism is not working properly and does not heat the water to the appropriate temp to continue with the cycle. I will say that their support was really friendly and she informed me that since it was purchased less than a year ago it would be covered under the warranty. She gave me the number of a local repair shop. Lets just hope they dont tell me nothing is wrong with it because my water temp is fine. I will let ya guys know. Here is the number for Danby that I called. General office: 419-425-5052. Good Luck!

I have had a similar problem numerous times, a couple of which required
manoeuvreing it into a place I could work on it, and a laborious
removal of the covers. Each time, up until this current incident, the
solution that worked, at least temporarily, was quite simple. The
recurrent problem was at least consistent: every 6-8 months I would
find that the pump would work but the spray arm was not moving. The
solutions always seemed to be something different: once all I
needed to do was to prime the pump, other times it seemed like calcium
and lime build-up was clogging up the parts so a little C.L.R. got me
on my way.
This most current incident was more baffling, as my standard solutions did not work. However, I think I finally got to the root of the problem.
Look inside the dish compartment, to the right, near the top. There are two little nubby holes. Their function is to allow air to enter/exit either the spray arm pump tubing or the water filling tubing. Remove the one zillion screws from the cover to access the innards. Pull off the tubing and unscrew the washer (it will be tight due to the sealant on it). Upon inspection, I found that the air hole for the spray arm pump was clogged with food residue. A tiny screwdriver will clear things out nicely - you should be able to see through it. If you clear it out a little but, but still can't see through it, then I presume you're just going to have the same problem back again.
It is important that this be clear so that the water can displace the air while filling is occurring and allow for good suction. Actually, it looked like a manufacturing flaw - there was still some residual plastic from the original molding on the inside, and food was getting caught on it.
