I'm getting an E:15 on my new Bosch dishwasher and nothing works, how do I fix it?


E15 means that water has gotten into the base pan below the dishwasher and it is now in flood mode. You've probably noticed that the drain pump will run all the time now as well. What that means is that water has worked it's way down into the base pan below the dishwasher tub causing the unit to do nothing but drain. This is normally caused by the drain being clogged or too many suds in the tub causing the tub to overflow a bit. Either way, you'll need to uninstall the dishwasher and tip it forward at a 45 degree angle to drain the water out of the base pan. Be sure to put a towel under the dishwasher first so that the water is soaked up in the towel instead of going all over the floor. Once you've drained all the water out of the base pan, reinstall the dishwasher and pour a gallon of water in the dishwasher. If it drains it out right away and doesn't wash or refill, you still have water left in the base pan to try again, otherwise you're good to go.
Now if you don't want to do all this work just to get your dishwasher working again and you have time, let the dishwasher just sit unused for a week and the water in the base pan will evaporate as time goes on and the dishwasher will start working again after a week.

Samsung Dishwasher model DW80F800UWS with Error code 5E or "SE" error code.


The 5E error code on this Samsung dishwasher means a drain error. Most often this is caused by a clogged drain hose, or some foreign object getting caught in the drain pump impeller. But it can also mean you have a bad ECS sensor. If this is Greek to you, then you should probably call a professional dishwasher repairman.

Why do i get f5 code on my samgung dishwasher


The F5 code means that the machine is not draining.
Either there is something blocking the drain line or the drain pump is defective!
first check the filter then the drain line!

What does samsung dishwasher error code se


SE (or 5E) on a Samsung DishWasher means Drain Error - Water not draining. Check the drain pump and drain hose for an obstruction; If that's okay, you will probably need to replace the ECS sensor.

Samsung error E5


I don't know about a E5 error; are you sure it's not a 5E error? That means a drain error or "water not draining" error. Check the drain pump and drain hose for an obstruction. If that's okay, and the dishwasher drains water, then you probably have a bad ECS sensor.

Hotpoint fdw60 4th and 5th lights flashing - water wont drain away - any advice please??


That is a trouble code from the dishwasher indicating the computer ran into an unexpected problem.

This link has a pretty technical discussion of your exact problem: http://www.ukwhitegoods.co.uk/forumsphpbb3/dishwasher-forum/hotpoint-fdw60-error-codes-fast-eco-t23513.html

Your problem is a "drain time out error", which means the dishwasher waited for the water to pump out and it never happened (sounds right!).

There are a few things you can check, but unless you're very handy you will probably need a professional:
1) Is the drain line from the dishwasher to the drain plugged by anything? It could be clogged with debris that's been washed off your dishes over the years.
2) Is the drain inside your dishwasher plugged? You'll have to scoop out the water inside to see.

If neither of those, it sounds like either the onboard computer has failed and needs to be replaced, or the pump is plugged or wrecked. In either case, paying for the repairman's time will probably be more expensive than the parts themselves.

Error 3 message


Call the company and get advice. Probably the wash motor overheating.

Error code E4 is on our display of our KDW243A dishwasher - what does this mean please?


Error code E4 means there is an overflow. Water is probably trapped. If you get error code E4, just tilt the machine back about 45 degrees and let the water drain out. It should come out on both sides. Then, you should be good to go.

Roaches in circuit board of whirlpool dishwasher


They are there for the food supply of course.

Take the front panel off and spray the interior where no electrical connections are with a contact killer roach spray. Do the same with the inside of the dishwasher and then leave for a couple of days with the door closed.

Before using the dishwasher again run it empty with detergent and about 3 cups of vinegar. Do this two or three times to make sure you get all the insecticide out.

You may have to do this more than once as they lay eggs which are not affected by the contact spray.

Read the label on spray or powder to see what company says about toxicity. Boric acid is probably one of the safer things you can use and is effective against roaches (at your pharmacy in powder form). And don't skimp on cleaning the dishwasher after as the idea is to kill the roaches not yourself.

Either that or replace the whole unit.
