Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

I have a kenwood dishwasher KDW12ST3A. It is coming up with the code E4 and apears to be working but not emptying. I am assuming it is blocked. It mentions in the instruction manual that I have to ensure that the water outlet valve is open, however it does not discribe how to do this? can you explain how I should do this and best advise me how to unblock it. I have undone the filters and have not found anything, water is slowly coming out the outlet pipe in to a bowl. I broke a glass some months ago. I would be so grateful if you can give me some advice on my 13 month old dishwasher as I begrudge paying approx £100 mearly to have it unblocked. Thanks Jacqui

SOURCE: error code e4 on kenwood kdw12st3a dishwasher too much inlet wate

HI there,
I have had the same problem as most of you. I seem to have fixed it by 
1. Bail out all the water from the inside
2. Remove the filter and 2 x mesh pieces.
3. Continue to bail out the water from the filter well.
4. You will probably find pieces of food or fat/debris in the bottom of the well. Remove these.
5. Tilt back the dishwasher at 45 degrees for 30 mins or so to drain and dry the flood sensor.
6. Boil a kettle and pour it down the well. Immediately put the dish washer on a eco wash (no tablets or anything) with half load (ie half water) and this will ease the water pump. 
7. Let the dishwasher run its cycle. 
8. Clean the filter again and the filter well.

It sounds quite long winded but with a £250 item you need to take care of it. Make sure you rinse most plates before loading in the future. 

Hope this helps!!!
Good Luck!!!

Hi

Error e4 on Kenmore usually occurs when there is drain clogging or due to debris stuck in the bottom of the dishwasher. Drain out the excess water from the dishwasher, now remove the mesh and the filter. Now, check and remove any food material or debris stuck. Now pour 1-2 litres of luke warm water and let this water drain. After this replace the parts and run the dishwasher on eco mode without any tablets or soap. Try this 2-3 times and then reset the dishwasher by unplugging it for 5-10 minutes.

Please post back for any further assistance.

HERE IS A LEAK AND IT IS BUILDING UP IN THE BOTTOM DRIP TRAY!. It is filling up the drip tray and tripping the micro switch. Remove the lid(2 screws at rear),givng access to screws on top of right side panel,remove right side panel, you will have to remove plastic cover on bottom front first to give access to screws on side panel. This gives access to the hoses and such, where the leak is most likely coming from. I would buy some inch and a half to 2 inch hose clips first, as the clips on the machine are not really reusable.The machine will have to be put on its left side, you may have to remove the bottom drip tray also, this holds the micro switch and the polystyrene float. You may have to run the machine to see where the leak is coming from, It is time consuming, but very "doable", remember electricity and water do not mix,unplug and make sure everything is dry, particularly yourself!.

Kenwood dishwasher KDW12SL3A


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

We have a kenwood kdw12st3a dishwasher - ever since we have had it, it has been nothing but trouble. It constantly flashes e4 so we have tipped it and drained the water out of the bottom (as advised) and...


To clear the fault you need to remove the two baskets from the dishwasher.

Slide it out from under the worktop and lean it forward to about 45 degrees.

If it is already full of water, turn on the power whilst pushing the programme button, this sets up a pump out program

Kenwood Slimline Dishwasher KDW8ST2A


I have a Kenwood Kdw8st2a and have been constantly plagued by the E4 overfill error.

Lifting the front of the dishwasher and tilting it backwards seemed to clear the E4 error only for it to come back after the next wash.

I found eventually that the connection to the U bend under the sink was too narrow and was almost blocked hence the dishwasher was not emptying properly.

I disconnected the dishwasher waste pipe and ran the waste into a bucket for about 6 cycles and it worked fine.

Eventually drilled through the kitchen wall and fitted a lower direct waste pipe to the drain. Overkill maybe buit it hasn't done an E4 since.

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.
