    Same problem, can seem to see any difference in product that would cause this. It fills up, drains and then i get E4. Literally used this 4 times prior. I used it correctly each time. :( Someone Help! The Danby manual doesn't say what this is or why it occurs!

E4 is overfilled condition.
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.

Water not draning

If kitchen side drains are clear then there might be some blockage in the pump system. Check the drain pump is working during drain cycle. If you can hear the pump but the water does not go away then you need to check filters at base of dishwasher. Beyond that you will have to open the pump assembly to look for debris.

see these instructions which might be helpful.

Our dishwasher does not progress beyond the wach cycle to the rinse cycle. It will run for hours and still has soap in it.

I'm positive of this, but your dishwasher may qualify for a somewhat recent recall. Call bosch to see. If you can get it to drain manually and put into rinse and hold manually, but it won't progress on it's own, then it's the control board. Hope this helps.

Kenwood dishwasher Comes up E3

I do not know the Kenwood dishwasher, hence I do not know what the E3 error is, but many dishwashers require a sustained pressure of at least 30 psi.
Can you please post the model number of your Kenwood dishwasher?

Sounds as though the drain is blocked partially. E4 is the overfill code. Try cleaning out the drain.

Kenwood dishwasher kdw8st2a

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.

The E4 code means - Overfilled. To much inlet water. Remove water manually from the tank pan and try operating a new cleaning cycle. Good luck !
