The dishwasher still has water in it.  Lean dishwasher back at least 45 degrees and water should drain out through overflow pipe.  It could be caused by the dishwasher not being level.  Otherwise from reading reviews online it seems to be a common fault with this dishwasher and lots of people have returned and purchased different.

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.

SOURCE: Maytag dishwasher won't drain

Drainage problem of some sort is usually the cause. Could be blockage before your drain pump, in your drain pump, or in your drain hose. One possibility is that you just installed a garbage disposal and forgot to remove the "knock-out" plug for the dishwasher drain line. Another cause can be that you have not looped your dishwasher drainline under your sink and water from your sink is flowing back into you dishwasher. You must attach your dishwasher drain line under your sink so it is higher then your sink drain lines, creating a trap for your dishwasher. Your drain sump could be plugged, not letting the water get to your drain pump easily. This is caused by not getting loose or hard debris off your dishes before putting them in the unit. Also make sure your drain pump is getting the right voltage when it is supposed to.God bless youfa618d8b-d0fd-412a-b0d5-a88d44bf89d3.giffb1320dc-7bec-4cb0-98ed-c24cf54e5e3b.jpg

My dishwasher says E4


Hi,


The error code E4 means selector switch pads is stuck.
First try a hard reset. Unplug the unit for 10 minutes and then switch on the dishwasher. Most cases you won't get the error message.
If you still get the error message then you need to take to service center to get it repaired. Mostly, the inner connectivity between the pad and circuit board is loose/bad.

Hope this helps.

Error code E4 for KDW243A - what does this mean


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
It is telling you that either it is not draining properly or that the drain time was excessive. First check all drain lines from the pump all the way through the last sink connection including BOTH the Air-Gap and Garbage Disposal. (if either are installed) The Air-Gap and Garbage disposal areas are where most drain restrictions happen. Pull the top cover off of the Air-Gap and removed the inner cap nut NOTING the installed position of the inner cap. It will only fit one way! Remove any debris in the cap area and use a flash light to check for obstructions deeper in the Air-Gap. Re-assemble same. Remove the hose from the sink / Garbage Disposal connection and check the drain port for obstuctions. Clear any obstructions.

Give this a try first and if it does not get you going... then the problem is internal of the dishwasher where drain passages are clogged. Prior to this incident you probably noted cloudy or spotted post cycle dishes..... that too is an indication of a drainage problem.

You will have to remove as much water from the machine as possible for the control to reset the error code. You may even have to turn off power to the dishwasher for longer than 20 minutes for it to reset. Some of them reset as soon as the drain is cleared.. others are really fussy. Action of last resort is to tip the unit onto the back and wait for all water to drain into the back of the inner cabinet. Then towel / wipe up the water before righting the dishwasher. (yes had to do this routine too sometimes)

Hopefully you have enough information here to correct this yourself.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My Kenwood dishwasher keeps displaying error message E4 but there is no mention of this in the user manual. Can you explain what this means


Hello,

Some models of Frigidaire washers come with a digital readout display that informs the operator of the unit's function and any errors.

Error codes indicate that a problem has occurred and should be addressed. Different models of Frigidaire washers may vary in their fault displays.

Some washer models use flashing lights at the unit's start, door lock, wash, rinse, final spin and control indicators to display error codes.

Hope this help?

Thanks.

What men cod e4 on dishwosher kenwood kdw12st3a


Hi

Error e4 on Kenmore usually occurs when there is drain clogging or due to debris stuck in the bottom of the dishwasher. Drain out the excess water from the dishwasher, now remove the mesh and the filter. Now, check and remove any food material or debris stuck. Now pour 1-2 litres of luke warm water and let this water drain. After this replace the parts and run the dishwasher on eco mode without any tablets or soap. Try this 2-3 times and then reset the dishwasher by unplugging it for 5-10 minutes.

Please post back for any further assistance.

E4 error after attempting to fill and get to temp


This is what I found for the E4 code...hope this helps...and thanks for rating my effort...The Fang.


Machine won't fill or won't fill high enough(LX18, LX30 display shows "E0," "E2," "E3," or "E4")

1.Low water pressure — check for clogged hose strainer; check that site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures.
2.Make sure probes are clean.
3.No water pressure — main water supply valves may not be working.
4.Drain valve open - turn machine off to drain machine, then on. Repeat twice (this assists in clearing any drain valve obstructions). Wait for machine to reach READY mode and press WASH. Slowly open door several seconds later and note water level. Close door; 30 seconds later, open door slowly and check that water level is the same as it was. If not, repeat the
OFF-ON procedure.
5. Delime machine.

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