I had the same problem and changed the
two thermostats on the base and got it working. You can get them from
partmasters.co.uk (thermostat protector) cost 17.99. They just screw in
and are dead easy to fit

E3 fault is caused by the water reaching the required temperature or taking too long to reach temperature. It will be either a malfunction of the temperature sensor or something wrong with the heating element.
Baumatic E4 error is caused by a float switch triggering in the sump of the machine. Anything over about 1/2 a pint in the bottom of the machine will lift the polystyrene float and the fault code will show. If the water has been caused by over enthusiastic cleaning or a drip or two over time then all that is required is for the water to be removed. For a built in machine (DISCONNECT THE POWER) then just unclip the front bottom right hand black plastic cover (behind your kitchen kickboard). Using a jcloth or similar mop up and the fault will clear. Replace the cover and restore the power and kickboard.
E3 is heater related fault - either heater itself or the small thermostat right at the back in the middle of the machine screwed up into the base of the tub. This thermostat being open circuit is a common fault. Also check for the door loom chafing on the poorly finished lower panel where the wiring leaves the door into the base of the appliance. Give me your model number to say how to change thermostat.
