    If your
    dishwasher has a digital readout and you see an error code, it may
    indicate a problem with the unit. If this happens, look up the error
    code in your owner's manual to find out what the problem is.

    If it doesn't work at all

    If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

    Power from the house
    Door switch
    Wiring
    Timer or selector switch



    Power from the house

    Is
    there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test,
    because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical
    circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a
    blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.




    Door switch

    The
    door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher
    won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel
    cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective,
    you need to completely replace it.




    Wiring

    Often
    the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and
    breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be
    repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the
    wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower
    part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken,
    burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade
    wire and connectors.




    Timer or selector switch

    Although
    it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If
    so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these
    can be repaired.

Powerpoint dishwasher IDW12 is displaying the error E4 with an error tone. The machine will not operate. How can this be fixed?


Hello there.

This is a well known fault with this particular dishwasher, error E4 and the audible alarm means you need to contact whoever you purchased the dishwasher from and ask them to repair it.

It needs serviced.

Hope this helps.

Where do i put the salt


Hello Maria,

The salt goes in the salt compartment in the base of the washing compartment. Unscrew the lid of the salt compartment (counter-clockwise), pour in salt until the compatment is full or nearly full then screw the lid back on firmly, but do not overtighten it.

belectric_138.jpg
If the dishwasher is new and you are using it for the first time, pour about 1 litre of cold clean water into the salt compartment before adding the salt. If you spill any salt or the water spills over the top of the salt compartment, it will wash/drain away the next time you use the washer.

The most important thing is to only use dishwasher salt. The salt is used for water-softening and only salt sold specifically for dishwashers can be used for this purpose.

The picture above is from a Bosch dishwasher. You may have another brand or model of dishwasher, but the salt compartment will still be in the base of the washing compartment and will have a cap which you unscrew as above.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please let me know the brand and model number of your dishwasher.

Regards,
BElectric
