Question about Dishwashers
I just bought a brand new Danby DDW497W dishwasher. This is only the second time I have used the dishwasher, and it shut off in mid cycle after about 20 minutes with the message E3 flashing on the digital display.
I have no idea what is going wrong! Any advice?
Same issue here so I just got off the phone with Danby. They said the E3 means the water is not hot enough when it goes into the machine. Now I dont know your guys situation but I let the water run hot until I cant touch it anymore, then I turn on the machine and plug it in. So it sounds like the heating mechanism is not working properly and does not heat the water to the appropriate temp to continue with the cycle. I will say that their support was really friendly and she informed me that since it was purchased less than a year ago it would be covered under the warranty. She gave me the number of a local repair shop. Lets just hope they dont tell me nothing is wrong with it because my water temp is fine. I will let ya guys know. Here is the number for Danby that I called. General office: 419-425-5052. Good Luck!

If you are unable to effect repairs yourself.
Please call our CUSTOMER HELP LINE
"1 800 26 DANBY"
and ask for assistance.
What I wil ask you to do is look for any tape or packing material in the bottom of the unit. If there is any tape on the float or flood sensors it will give you an error.
I note that there is no mention of P2 errors in the user's manual here:
