Kenwood diswasher kdw243a/a e3 fault code?

e3 means there was a longer heating time but not reaching required temperature could be a malfunction of temperature sensor or of heating element. E3 is a temperature error. There are two theromstats, 90 degrees and 78 degrees. I suggest you to call the competent person to substitute either of these thermostats.

My Kenwood KDW243A built in dishwasher is desplaying what I assume is an error code, E3. What does this mean? The washer is not washing properly.

E3 means the base is full of water. A quick fix is to tilt the machine back for 10 mins or so but you need to find the cause of the leak and repair it

Had the same problem (apart from the code) and the answer is to stop putting plastic in the machine ! It seems the dishwashers need the heat radiated from the Ceramic plates, stell knives etc to help dry. The plastic simply absorbs some water and then your dishwahser spends most of its drying time trying to get that water out again. Also Plastic doesn't radiate any heat to help. As soon as we stopped putting plastic plates and tupperware containers in, hey presto the dishes are drying again

Hi my kenwood dishwasher kdw243a is not releasing the tablet door and not getting hot ?

It sounds as though the heater has failed. I would expect an error code such as e3 to be displayed. It should be possible to test the heater element with a multimeter set on ohms.

E3 showing on Kenwood model KDW243A

E3 means longer heating time. Usually this indicates the heater element has failed.

The dishwasher still has water in it.  Lean dishwasher back at least 45 degrees and water should drain out through overflow pipe.  It could be caused by the dishwasher not being level.  Otherwise from reading reviews online it seems to be a common fault with this dishwasher and lots of people have returned and purchased different.
