Here are the error codes from Samsung's website:

Error Codes spacer.gif If your dishwasher is displaying an error code, please refer to your users manual for an explanation. If you don't have your users manual on hand, you can download it from Samsung's Download Center. To go to the Download Center and download the users manual for your dish washer, click here.
Common error codes caused by installation errors are:

  • 5E which indicates a kinked or bent drain hose
  • 4E which indicates that the water supply valve is closed or not fully open
  • LE which indicates a leak.
I hope that this helps!

SOURCE: Water does not drain away properly. What should

Hello there:
Normally if you have already checked the filters the next step for you is to check the drain hose and make sure that it is clear and if it is than you will hve to remove the side panel off the machine and check the extraction pump they can get clogged really easily this is what normally happens to these machines
And when they do this is what normally happens when it starts not to drain right
so please try all of these solutions and i think you wil find that the pump is clogged and needs to be removed and cleaned ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

SOURCE: Delonghi DW 47s dishwasher shows E3 error code

My DW67s also did this. I assume they are very similar models. According to the instruction manual, E3 means longer than usual water heating time or water not heating.

The heating element is not like the conventional one like what resembles the element in an electric oven. Instead, the element wraps around a water pipe and heats the water while one of the pumps circulates the water. That pump can become stiff due to lack of use because of a rubber seal which can get dry and tight if not used for long periods of time. Ensure the machine is unplugged, tap is off and emptied of dish racks and water before laying it on its side. Access is via the underside cover. Simply free up the pump again by rotating it with your finger. A sensor which is screwed onto the side of the pump can be removed for finger access. If you feel much resistance in the rotation of the pump at first, then after it becomes looser, then you have probably solved the problem. If it is really jammed then perhaps you have a chicken bone or something stuck in it and requires further disassembly. If it was already freely spinning and the problem isn't solved then perhaps the water heater itself isn't working or the pump motor is burnt out or an electrical connection somewhere is faulty.

Bosch dishwasher doesn't work. water not coming


Hi Gilgol, The link below is a Bosh Dishwasher list of error codes, I believe your error code is E3....CHEERS..
http://removeandreplace.com/2015/10/09/bosch-dishwasher-error-codes-how-to-clear-what-to-check/
Bosch Dishwasher Error Code E3
Fault Condition: Not filling with water
Repair or Check: If the water supply cut-off valve on the dishwasher is completely open but the dishwasher will not fill with water then shut off the water supply and unplug the dishwasher. Remove the water fill line and check to see if the water inlet screen valve is plugged up. If so then replace the water valve. Cleaning the screen can make the issue worse so always replace if the screen is clogged. The valve can get stuck open from gunk and therefore flood or overfill.

My dishwasher gives an E3 error


The E3 error code is not a defined error for this dishwasher. If you are sure it is E3 then best option is to give the controller a reset. This is done by


Press the Delay Start + Normal + Power keys at the same time for two seconds to enter Service Inspection Mode.
- "ALL" is displayed for the first three (3) seconds and then "t1" is displayed.

Press OFF at this stage. Do not attempt to run the inspection as this could damage the dishwasher unless you are familiar with the what each mode does.
If the Error E3 keeps coming back then call the Samsung technician.

Error code E3 on Samsung DMS500TRW dishwasher


3E error in Samsung dishwashers normally relates to high temperature error. This means the dishwasher is detecting over 80deg C water temperature. However if it is 5E that means drain error. If your dishwasher is draining correctly then please check the error again.

Take the water hose off the shut off valve under the sink. If you can't completely shut off the water, the rubber washer has broken off small pieces that will travel up the hose. Check for a partial blockage.

E3 water drainng error


Some drain problems come from the washer drain hose not being high enough to allow for the water to fill in the dishwasher. Make sure the hose is held as high as the washer top as possible before it drains into the sink drain pipe. A good example is your cloths wash machine the drain hose comes from the bottom of the machine then it goes up to the drain that is higher than the basket. This keeps the water level high enough to wash clothes. The dishwasher works the same way. The drain hose must be slightly higher or as high as the needed level in the machine to work. In most cases as high as the dishwasher top or close to it. Simple raise the drain hose.

Hobart lx30 E3 error


Error Code E3 relates to a problem with the fill. Specifically that the water level has not been recognized at the middle water sensor. This can be caused by a problem with the drain system as you describe, or by low water pressure to the machine (should be 15-25psi flow), or bad wire connection to this middle sensor.
Check for proper water pressure first (should be a gauge on the machine) during the fill. Then check / repair drain as needed. These will probably eliminate the problem
