    Follow this procedure, it might help: Do u sure the fault code is E4



    1. Disconnect the power to the unit

    2. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher (you will probably find it is full of water)

    3. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water

    4. There is a float that should stop the operation of the dishwasher and run the pump if water is in this tray. Check this pump to see if it is functional

    5. Test the dishwasher

    6. If there are no leaks from the dishwasher into the pan, check the drain hose under the sink

    7. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO THE TOP OF THE UNDERSIDE OF THE COUNTERTOP THEN DOWN TO THE DRAIN. (If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overfill the tray: E4 code will appear

Constant beeping when switched on.E4 on programme


E4 would suggest a leak or spillage of water into the base of the appliance.- Unplug the appliance.
- Put some towels around the rear of it and tip it rearward about 45 degrees.
- Drain the water out of the base at the rear corners.

Once drained, try the machine again. If it fails very quickly then it would suggest a leak and you would need to drain it again, take the panels off and watch it working to locate the source of the leak. Cure the leak to stop the fault.

Hope this helps.

Error code E4 is on our display of our KDW243A dishwasher - what does this mean please?


Error code E4 means there is an overflow. Water is probably trapped. If you get error code E4, just tilt the machine back about 45 degrees and let the water drain out. It should come out on both sides. Then, you should be good to go.

Kenwood dish washer showing E4


Hi

E4 is a flood warning. It is doing what its meant to, if water enters the base of the dish washer.

You need to turn the electric off. lean the machine back at 45 degrees and allow the water to drain away. I appreciate you may have done this before, but you need to get it back running.
Make sure the base under the tub is completely dry.
Then you will have to remove the sides and sit there patiently watching it while it washes, untill you see where the leak is from.
Restting it is not the answer, you have to find where its leaking from and fix it.
The discharge pumps on these are prone to leaking, so might be worth a look.

Error code e4


This might be a re-badged generic dishwasher - on my Baumatic E4 error caused by floatswitch in bottom catch tray. Some (supposedly small amount) water collects here and should evaporate naturally. If it accumulates, float rises and stops machine.

TURN OFF THE POWER

try to find a way into the machine base catch-tray to sponge it out - on the Baumatic there are two large black plastic plugs on the front of the machine base that can be forcibly flipped out.

failing that, take machine out and tip it up to get rid of water

The dishwasher still has water in it.  Lean dishwasher back at least 45 degrees and water should drain out through overflow pipe.  It could be caused by the dishwasher not being level.  Otherwise from reading reviews online it seems to be a common fault with this dishwasher and lots of people have returned and purchased different.

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

E4 error on new conia dishwasher


Had the same problem. First you will need to tilt dishwasher back 45 degrees and tip out all excess water. A couple of towels on the floor are a good idea.

Second check that the little nozzle on the elbow under your sink where your overflow attaches is drilled out.

This fixed my problem after fussing around for a day and I was starting to disconnect everything to take it back.
