I have a Error message E4 which will not clear, have tried emptying the salt compartment, although did not manage to completly empty it ( it contained water, is this correct) checked the water inlet which appears to be ok, tried turning it off, but no change, if water is placed in the bottom of the dishwasher, on startup the pump pumps all water clear. Tried to reset it by switching it off. The manual only says that it is an overfill problem, but says it could be a number of cause`s. Do you have any suggestions???
E4 commonly means an overflow detected in the bottom over flow tray - try removing the kick board from the front of the machine - you should see 2 plastic black panels about 4 inches wide each, using a flat edged screwdriver pop the panels off and you will see the mechanics of the machine - the base is classed as the over flow tray - when water fills this tray a polystyrene float is pushed up and an E4 error code is detected - tilt the dishwasher back and allow the machine to dry out before trying it again - this should work unless the water seal around the filter basket is broken - in this case an engineer should be called to replace this part. Hope this Helps.
Instead of taking the appliance out of the housing to tilt it I took the two plastic plates off and put a towel in to soak up the water, it did the trick and all is working well now. Hope this helps.

the unit is not draining properly. unplug it from the current outlet, check behind there should be two places to drain the machine. unplug the two drain plugs in the back and let the water empty out. the e4 error message comes up when the unit is filling up with water.
The float switch might be tripping. Pull the dishwasher out (if it's under-counter) and tilt it forward gradually to about 20 degrees. If you see a pool of water on the floor, it means that water is getting into the bottom of the dishwasher underneath the washing compartment.
This can simply be caused by a loose retaining nut on the salt compartment. Unscrew the cap from the salt compartment and you will see a large plastic nut underneath. If it's loose, tighten it - you'll need a large pair of waterpump pliers or stilson for this.
Assuming this was the problem, make sure you empty all the water from the bottom before you put it back by tilting it forwards until water stops coming out.
To stop the problem returning, DON'T over-tighten the cap on the salt compartment. Make sure it's on firmly, but if you overtighten it, it will grip the nut and loosen it the next time you remove the salt cap. If the nut is loose, water can get into the bottom of the washer.
E4 says the ink is empty, sometimes you can print if you just press and hold the OK button for a few seconds, but if the error doesn't clear, you will have to replace the color ink before you can print in just black.
Try removing all dish trays and salt softner lid, check if the salt softner compartment is full of water, if so place the machine on its side and allow all the water to drain from the compartment, once this is done your machine should be good to go. This is how i resolved my problem. The salt softner is located next to the water drain filter.
Empty cartridges may cause this error. Here is the error code list for your printer

If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
This error message is because the water tank is full. Just empty it out
and put it back in and the AC will start to work again. If that doesn't
work then I don't know what the problem is, but I just had the E4 error
and did that and the problem was solved.
