My Kenmore HE2t washer is stopping about 8 minutes into the cycle (any wash cycle)..completely turns off. I can run rinse and spin then and it completes the cycle. No error codes when it turns off. W

htc sensor isnt working i would recon
perhaps the element isnt getting power
did it trip your circuit breaker
some times the htc fails
all you get is machine stop because the heater is not detected

if it spins rinses and empties in a timely manner
then all thats left is the heater system

My Candy DFI Plan shows E3 and stops washing after 10-15 minutes. The problems started because electronics( I swithed with new) than I change the water pump, the heater, the thermostats and when is on,...

E3 - Water heating time out or fault

The dishwasher has failed to heat with water in a reasonable time or has failed to detect the water heating element.

Check water heating element wiring
Check water heating element
Check wiring to main control module

Does not dry dishes..still wet and spotty after cycle ..already have replaced control it reads HE

The reason it would not be drying is because either the rinse aid is low or the heater element is faulty. Not sure why you replaced control panel.

HE means the heater circuit is tripping. if you are using hot water direct from the tap then the water temperature could be too hot. If using cold water then the heater element could be faulty.

You can try some diagnostics if you are confident to do so. The details are in the service manual

The dishwasher starts and initially rinses the dishes without heated water. In the next part of the cycle, the water is supposed to heat to a certain temperature.Beginning this morning, in this second part...


The issue is with the heating element of your dishwasher, it is withdrawing very large amount of power and thus, the circuit gets overloaded and circuit breaker trips. You'll need to check for any short circuits around the heater element. And, also the resistance of the heater element, it should be around 1.4K ohms to 1.8K ohms.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and Revert for further assistance.

Candy cs455 m dishwasher tripping out power

if what you mean is that it trips the circut or fuse in your home then the circut that you have it pluged into is not sufficent to hold for the elctrical load that the dishwasher needs. you can do one of two things. change the circut that the dishwasher is on ( plug it into a circut that has nothing else on it or verfiy that the circut can handle a higher amperage .. if thats the case change the fuse / circut breaker to a higher amperage.

peace ... jk

Candy Dishwasher Power Trip Problem...........................

Hi Adam,

Those are tough questions, it depends on accessibility of the parts in question, and the tools you have available to you.
It’s worth remembering that 80% of d/washer faults are mechanical in nature (even the electrical ones). I know that sounds like a contradiction in terms, however I am referring to things like loose connections, broken wires worn parts etc.
First thing to do is have a good look and weigh the job up (English colloquialism) A bad Neutral connection to the heater element would give you these symptoms. An open circuit heater would likely do the same. Moisture in an inappropriate place could also give similar problems.
After gaining access to the business end of the element, check for corroded connectors. If all seems well, and you have access to a multimeter, set it to ohms and measure across the two heater terminals with the wires disconnected. If you get no reading, then the heater element is open circuit and requires replacing. If you do get a reading, and still think the element is suspect, you could try disconnecting both feeds to the heater (not the earth) taping them up with good quality electrical tape so as to isolate them, then try your dishwasher on a cycle where the water would normally be heated. If it doesn’t trip the RCBs then heater is suspect.
This is a good starting point, and will enable you to assess weather you feel comfortable tackling replacing it or not (assuming it is faulty). If you don’t feel comfortable, may I suggest that you purchase the element from a spares supplier yourself, there are many good suppliers on line. Then have a service engineer fit it. This prevents your friendly repair man charging you $90.00 for a $20.00 part.
Of course, it goes without saying, that all these tests should be carried out with the appliance disconnected from the mains supply.

Good Hunting!
