I have an error E1 on a Kenwood kdw45x16. I don't have a manual. How do I fix it

E1 is a filling error. If you remove the unit from under the counter, on the right side is a thin hose that connects to a switch, disconnect one end of the hose and blow it out to be sure that nothing is stuck in it. The connect it back and unhook the end away from the switch and blow air in it again and listen for the switch to click. The service manual is here:

I have a Kenwood KID60S15 dishwasher and it is showing an F1 error. Can you please advise how I fix this problem?

F 1 is a flood code meaning excess amounts of water have collected on the bottom catch basin.

My. GE dishwasher is showing E8 code. What does it mean?

means that the unit thinks the water coming into it isn't hot enough. It can be reset, but here is the way to avoid this problem. Run the hot water in the sink until it comes out hot. Then the unit shouldn't give this error.
All dishwashers require at least water of 140 degrees or higher

Where is the distributary valve?

that is a very good question
i cant find a "distributary valve" for sale

lots of water inlet valves hot and cold single units

almost every dishwasher user manual and has code e8 mentioned and faulty distributary valve

why the fault
.If the distributary valve have worked for 150
seconds, and could not reach right
position during wash cycle,after the cycle is finished, the dishwasher will shut off all
loads, the alarm buzzer will ring for 30 seconds and the window will display "E8" at rate
of 1Hz in 30 seconds, and then display "E8" , drain water for 2 minutes meanwhile

Error code E8 appears mid wash, heater is working ok, machine has been hooked up to the hot water instead of cold. I have since directed cold water through water valve.

hot water form the house takes less power to bring up to machine temperature so by hooking it to cold water will increase the power consumption
call a service center and get the explanation for the error codes and that will explain what is faulty
you didn't mention the make and model of the unit and every error code appears different
for example in a fulgor milano machine code 8 is failure of orientation of distributary valve ===causes open circuit or break of distributary valve
for hoover nextra e8 is dishwasher has failed to heat with water in a reasonable time or has failed to detect the water heating element===causes check water heating element/wiring--check wiring to main control module
go google and type in-- dishwashing machine error code 8-- and see if there is any site for your machine to get the error code and causes
other than that get in a service technician for a correct diagnosis and fix

My kenwood KDW12SL3A dishwasher dysplays E3 error every time I use it. dishes don't get cleaned properly. Can I fix it myself? if not how much will it cost me to get it fixed by a professional? thank you


E3 error code neans the water is not being heated to the required temperature in the machine.

This may be either a defective heating element or faulty thermostat.

It is unlikely you can fix this yourself.

Depending on what is wrong it might cost you around $150

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


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?
