Hi,

The ERROR 4 indicates that the machine is flodded...

Sounds like the base of the appliance has flooded,Unplug the appliance and drag it out.

Tip it rearward about 45 degrees, water will run out of the rear corners so a couple of towels would be handy.

Once drained, try the machine again.
You'll need to leave the machine switched off and allow it to fully dry out.

Once drained, the machine would work perfect and this should solve your issue

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

    Hi, my dishwasher does exactly the same thing. But after I drained the water out and left it to dry I switched it back on and after 2 min it does the same thing. What else could be the problem?

Run the dishwasher through a test mode


Test Mode


Make sure the appliance is empty of water before running Diagnostics as it does not pump out before starting to fill and therefore you could overfill the appliance.
Open the door and set the program to the first program. (Normally rinse).
Turn the power off.
Press and hold the start button and while holding turn the power on.
After a little while the start button will flash, release the button.
Press the start button once and close the dishwasher door.
The machine will now run through a diagnostic routine.
Should take about 20 mins.
The machine will stop during diagnostics if an error is found and will display the error code. If no error is found it will complete the diagnostics and end the programme.

To exit diagnostics at any time just press and hold the start button till the programme is cancelled

I've got a Kelvinator dishwasher KD12MM bought second hand, the machine goes on but does not pump water. Please help


Possible that the pump has clogged or is jammed with dirt. you will need to remove the pump and clean the pump assembly for a good spray pressure. If this wont work then the pump is faulty and needs to be replaced.Check this link for tips:

Whirlpool dishwasher adg 642 not working start light flashhin 4 times


Hello Faye,
The F4 error code is a drainage error and it means that the control board did not detect a drop in the water level in the tub so it thinks it didnt drain.
The things that could cause this are a clooged filter on the pump asm, a blockage in the drain pump or hose or even a defective control board if in fact all the water has seemed to drain out of the tub.This is how ya set the diagnostic test to clear the codes and see if it reoccurs
  • Make sure the appliance is empty of water before running Diagnostics as it does not pump out before starting to fill and therefore you could overfill the appliance.
  • Open the door and set the program to the first program. (Normally rinse).
  • Turn the power off.
  • Press and hold the start button and while holding turn the power on.
  • After a little while the start button will flash, release the button.
  • Press the start button once and close the dishwasher door.
  • The machine will now run through a diagnostic routine.
  • Diagnostic takes about 20 mins.
  • The machine will stop during diagnostics if an error is found and will display the error code. If no error is found it will complete the diagnostics and end the program.
  • To exit diagnostics at any time just press and hold the start button till the program is cancelled.

    A KD12DSS-2 KELVINATOR DISHWASHER WITH FAULTY ERROR 4 CODE


    Hi.

    Error 4 is internal leakage (overflow).

    when this happens often the dishwasher starts with the pump running continuously.

    Switch off the power from main circuit breaker, drain the inside of the appliance and clean the drain filter in the bottom panel of the tub. If problem persists, check the drain hose at the back. Ensure that it is not kinked, and that height is as from installation manual.

    If that does not work, then the machine is faulty. Repair is done removing the kickplate at the base of the appliance, checking for water leak in there. Disconnecting pump hose and removing debris, testing the overflow switch by running a cycle with its contacts jumped. The inlet valve must also be checked to ensure that it is not leaking.

    Turn off power and remove water from inside the appliance. Usually that is enough to sort out the problem.

    Regards.

    What is causing the drain pump to continue running


    C1 - Partially Blocked Drain - This error will occur when dishwasher was unable to pump out water in less than 95 seconds. Check drain line for debris and blockage. If clear, check for a restricted drain valve in the pump. Check the pressure sensor for correct operation as it sounds like it may be defective and thinks that the machine is still full of water after it has emptied.

    E1 error code on my kenwood dishwasher [kwd243a


    Hi
    The E1error code indicates a water inlet error.
    To access test mode: press and hold Normal+Eco, and press Power. Release buttons. Then press Start(display n:01).Press Start again (display shows water level frequency-not important). Press Start again-(display n:03-motor will be running). Press Start again (display n:04-drain pump will run). Press Start again (display n:05-inlet valve will come on and machine should fill with water). You have now tested major components are working-if you keep pressing start you will scroll thru and test other functions, like heater, dispensor etc, but not needed for your fault.
    If Machine didn't fill with water in test mode, you probably have a faulty inlet valve (test resistence should be approx 3.7-4 k ohm).
    If inlet valve has tested OK ie machine filled with water in test mode then:
    Disconnect from power.
    Remove side panels (need to remove top, and bottom front panel to then be able to remove sides)
    - Check no water in base of machine-water in base will indicate machine has leaked and activated the safety device which shuts off inlet valve.
    - If OK, you probably have a faulty flow meter(measures water intake). Located left hand side of machine, large plastic compartment, which has a sensor at the bottom with 3 wires (red,white,black) that go up to control board. Replace entire flow meter assy-relatively inexpensive part.
    - If you still have problem, then control board is faulty, it is much more likely to be flow meter .

    Error code AO1


    Error message A01 means -Acqua stop operated due to a leak or overfill. Check if there is still water in the machine after it stop pumping. In case you still have water - your problem is with the pump or with a blockage drain line. If there is no water in the machin, it might be a water level sensor issue - stuck physically in the high level position or become defective. Try to reduced the water presure and leveled it up by the water entrance tap to the machine, it might solve your problem. Goog luck !!
