Deloghi dw67s dishwasher, drain pump on continuously, showing E4 and no water in washer. What is used to detect the overflow?


Hello

There is a slight leak somewhere or the machine keeps overfilling causing the drain pan to activate via the flood switch.

remove all dish trays from washer, unscrew and remove lid off salt softener, almost and thoroughly remove as much excess water as you can, it could be the vacuum switch/water level float.. do the tip over again, and be sure you get it all,

replace all trays and softner lid and machine should work again.

Dishwasher: danby ddw1806bsl. Getting error code E4 "too much inlet water". How to fix that?


There is a tank with an overflow sensor on the right side of the dishwasher. The tank needs to be drained of water to reset the sensor. If necessary remove the insulation on the lower front corner of the machine and drain into a cup or container by removing the black rubber plug at the bottom of the plastic tank.
Consult the manual for detailed procedure.
The error can occur from excessive foaming.

I have a Delonghi dishwasher DW67S/W which shows an E4 overfill message. Is there a way to reset this as the only Delonghi recommended service people are hundreds of kilometres away


After a bit more perserverance we managed to solve this problem ourselves. The machine had been drained of all possible water but on moving the machine to try and find the float device ourselves a further load of water ran out from underneath it. After this water had dislodged itself the machine started to run correctly.

Problem with Candy CDI45, Error E4


The instruction manual defines E4 as "overfilled", a possible reason being too much inlet water. What helped with our machine - removed all dishes inside, then let the machine's pump run briefly to make sure as much water was drained from the system as possible. I then unplugged the device, placed a large towel on the floor around its base, and tilted the machine front-ward, until all water had run out. Lifted the machine back upright, plugged it in, switched on - and voilà! it's working as I speak.

I had E4. Initially couldn't get it to clear.

In desperation, switched it off, turned it on it side and drained it onto the floor.

The E4 disappeared and the dishwasher is working normally.

Error messages on a EuroTech EDW154E dishwasher??


Eurotech Dishwashers are notorious for the E1 and E4 faults. The problem is with the solenoid they use for filling the dishwasher. The problem is something called the "Venturi Effect". The Venturi effect is the reduction in fluid pressure that results when a fluid flows through a constricted section of pipe. The fluid velocity must increase through the constriction to satisfy the equation of continuity. while its pressure must decrease due to conservation of energy. The gain in kinetic energy is balanced by a drop in pressure or a pressure gradient force. I know, a lot of big words. To put it simply, the orifice within the solenoid is smaller than the inlets and outlets. Even more simply put: Not enough water is getting into the dishwasher. It's a design flaw and I'm not certain there are many ways around it. Just make certain that you have a good water feed to the dishwasher (no kinks, valve on completley etc.). One thing you may try is reducing the feed pressure (i.e. slightly turn down the water valve supply to the dishwasher). Doing so may diminish the venturi effect by equalizing inlet pressure. It's worth a try.
