Unplugthe power cord to your dishwasher.

Hi.

Error 4 is internal leakage (overflow).

when this happens often the dishwasher starts with the pump running continuously.

Switch off the power from main circuit breaker, drain the inside of the appliance and clean the drain filter in the bottom panel of the tub. If problem persists, check the drain hose at the back. Ensure that it is not kinked, and that height is as from installation manual.

If that does not work, then the machine is faulty. Repair is done removing the kickplate at the base of the appliance, checking for water leak in there. Disconnecting pump hose and removing debris, testing the overflow switch by running a cycle with its contacts jumped. The inlet valve must also be checked to ensure that it is not leaking.

Turn off power and remove water from inside the appliance. Usually that is enough to sort out the problem.

Regards.

I have just reeived a Kelvinator dishwasher KD12WW. I have only a cold water outlet can I still wash with it


I found a site that is important for you to down load the site is ns323666.ip-37-187-156.eu
It is a pdf version of the instruction manual for the dishwasher
I notice that one of the instructions is quote" when using your dishwasher , you should prevent plastic items from contacting the heating element" un quote
most all dishwashers heat their own water above what human hands can stand so from that statement you can use cold water inlet only and the machine will heat it to operating temperature
I got that site by going google and typing in --kelvinator kd12ww dishwasher
then I selected site manual-kelvinator kd12ww dishwasher clicked on that and that address came up with the pdf manual
there are other sites that have parts manuals and heaps of other information
call your local kelvinator service agent and ask them about a heating element

Why are two brand new dishwashers giving me the same error?


as it is under warranty I would have the service agent back again and this time either fix the machine properly or replace it under the terms of the warranty or get a refund of the purchase price for the machine
it is obviously not fit for the purpose if two machines do the same thing
one thing to be aware of, if the elements are not getting hot enough, it may be advisable to check the power voltage into the machine at the power point as the mains voltage may be too low for the elements.
