You need to clean the filters and coils on this unit so the error code will go away and the unit will work like it should. If it can't get clean air across the coils it will freeze up and not circulate any air. Most common issues are dirty filters and dirty coils that prevent air flow. Is the fan working to blow air? this code could also mean the fan is not working. Check on these and let me know.

What does E3 mean?

E3 not hot enough. This defect can be caused by, but not only, a defective element or clogged spray arms.

E3 means water is "not heating" for this model. Check the heating element, thermostat/thermistor or printed circuit board with power OFF.
