    Same model same problem. Had the Issue before and it goes away after a few days.



    Checked hose etc all clear, it generally happens after a E3 message (filter blocked) first time. I suspect there is a water sensor thats tripped by the rising water after the filter block. Takes time to reset (possibly due to evaporation).



    If I knew where it was located I would give it a go but dont.



    Hoover services will seng an engineer out to reset it (at cost) but will not supply a solution beyond that.

E4 Error on other machines (eg. Baumatic) means that the bottom catch tray (condensate trap) below the machine has too much water in it. This condensate is supposed to evaporate away, but too much will mean it builds up over a period of time. There is a float that trips a microswitch in my Baumatic which detects this, it only needs 2 - 3mm of water before the microswitch is activated.

If this is the problem with your machine (try it annd see), there are several solutions posted in forums - best seems to be to remove plastic access hole caps from base and mop out the tray with sponge. TURN OFF AT MAINS BEFORE POKING AROUND INSIDE THE BASE. May have to repeat at regular intervals to.

What causes it ? - I think it is excess condensate from steam inside the wash cabinet, follow the manufacturers advice to open the door as soon as the wash cycle has ended to release as much steam as possible to stop it condensing inside the machine.

Peramnent solution ? - I don't think possible - My guess is it's just a bad design.

E4 means that water is not discharging properly, check the hose, filters etc

Why does my Fisher and Paykel DD605SS stall part way through wash cycle?


I'm not sure of this, because the manual does not have an error with a E. I can fine error F4. It says it encountered a faulty temperature sensor or element. If the heating element burned through the night you circuit breaker tripped (Sure it was not the ground fault circuit breaker?), then the dish washer can't heat the water, so the program can't continue. The program stops (waits) till the chosen temp is reached. If the water stays cold the program can't go on.
So also check the heater in the machine. I hope you are aware everything in the machine runs on high (or at least dangerous) voltages, so be careful not to work in the machine when it is still connected.

My Dishwasher has a rapid flashing light


I get the same problem with a pepeating beep warning. Only solution I've found is to switch it off using off button then switch it back on. It waits a few seconds then finishes the program and drains. The dishes still seem to be quite damp after. Hope this helps

Try checking the water level, and level switch? Is the outlet hose high enough of the floor? If you tip the machine back you should see one or two clear plastic tubes, take one end of these and blow through them and the do it the other way round.
