SOURCE: Integrated dishwasher DW009,

If this is an asko dishwasher , most times this problem is caused by water getting into the base pan and setting off the float switch. Turn off the power and take the toe kick off, behind there is a pan runs under the motor and sump if there is water in it clean it out. that will take care of the problem. but you will need to watch and see if you can tell where the water came from sometimes on those unit its just from too much detergent

Customer support 1 800 297-1023 told me that this means the base unit is defective and can't be repaired. I also was told that none of my remote units are compatable with other models.

SOURCE: error code e4 on kenwood kdw12st3a dishwasher too much inlet wate

HI there,
I have had the same problem as most of you. I seem to have fixed it by 
1. Bail out all the water from the inside
2. Remove the filter and 2 x mesh pieces.
3. Continue to bail out the water from the filter well.
4. You will probably find pieces of food or fat/debris in the bottom of the well. Remove these.
5. Tilt back the dishwasher at 45 degrees for 30 mins or so to drain and dry the flood sensor.
6. Boil a kettle and pour it down the well. Immediately put the dish washer on a eco wash (no tablets or anything) with half load (ie half water) and this will ease the water pump. 
7. Let the dishwasher run its cycle. 
8. Clean the filter again and the filter well.

It sounds quite long winded but with a £250 item you need to take care of it. Make sure you rinse most plates before loading in the future. 

Hope this helps!!!
Good Luck!!!

What is code E4


E4 means the overflow sensor has activated.

Under the washer is a pan - with a sensor. If it gets any sort of water - it activates.
You can remedy this issue by pulling out the dishwasher, and tilting it up to about a 45 degree angle to empty the catch pan.

This should solve your problem.


Thanks for using FixYa!!

Error code on iron man cycle


There are two black plastic covers on the front of the base of the machine, it is easy enough to get a sponge in and mop out the sump when it happens. The covers are hard to flip out, but a simple modification with a file has made them more readily removable for mopping out. That's nearly as easy as emptying a drip dray.
The level sensor that causes the E4 error. Its at the middle front of the sump pan, and consists of a polystyrene foam float that trips a micro switch. it only needed a small (say 3mm) movement to operate.All back in place and will work again.

Continuous beeping and code E4 on display


"E4" code relates to the overflow detector There appears to be an internal sump. Lean the machine back about 35-45 degrees to remove the excess water from the dishwasher. It might be messy so be prepared. By design the sump collects water from condensation i.e. (Cold outside machine wall, hot inside machine wall) hence condensation builds up and is suppose to and should evaporate in the right environment. Placement and installation locations play into a big part of the design.
You will notice by observation just in the center there is a polystyrene float. This is what activates the overflow switch which throws the error code.
This problem is simple to fix, just take off your kitchen plinth and turn off the dish washer power. then at the base of the dishwasher there are 2 plastic clip access panels, take a blunt screw driver or knive to help you ease out the plastic panel. once this is off, simple take a dish cloth out mop out the water, particularly from the left hand side as this is where the sensor is. Once dry (ish) replace the panels and switch on - DONE! its that easy

Kenwood Slimline Dishwasher KDW8ST2A


I have a Kenwood Kdw8st2a and have been constantly plagued by the E4 overfill error.

Lifting the front of the dishwasher and tilting it backwards seemed to clear the E4 error only for it to come back after the next wash.

I found eventually that the connection to the U bend under the sink was too narrow and was almost blocked hence the dishwasher was not emptying properly.

I disconnected the dishwasher waste pipe and ran the waste into a bucket for about 6 cycles and it worked fine.

Eventually drilled through the kitchen wall and fitted a lower direct waste pipe to the drain. Overkill maybe buit it hasn't done an E4 since.

Error mesage E4


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.
Thanks
