SOURCE: Danby dishwasher E3 error

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!

SOURCE: Is there a quick fix

Refer the user manual for your dishwasher. Error codes are given on page 7.

e3 means the heater is not working or the thermostat (which checks the water temperature) is faulty.
Not sure there is any quick fix other than to replace. If the heater is showing some reading on an ohm meter then it is likely the thermostat is faulty. In any case it will be easier and cheaper to replace the thermostat first.

You will need to call Danby service closest to you for advise on getting the parts or servicing it.

My danby countertop dishwasher ddw497w turns on, drains the water in the tub, refills and right before it usually fires up. click and nothing. just sits there with no fault code. any ideas before i sm


Hey Derrick,

According to the manual:

http://www.danby.com/cms/documents/pdfs/en/DDW497W_EFSOM.pdf


The most likely cause is the appliance not being leveled properly. Apart from that, I have found no useful information.

If you have a smart phone, try using one of the various, 'Surface Level' apps which will allow you to set your phone on the top of the appliance and then adjust the level until the bubble is centered in the crosshairs.

Hope this helps.

What does an E3 code mean?


hello,

what this mean is an indication of a problem detected b the sensor

Some models of washers come with a digital readout display that informs the operator of the unit's function and any errors.

Error codes indicate that a problem has occurred and should be addressed. Different models of washers may vary in their fault displays.

Some washer models use flashing lights at the unit's start, door lock, wash, rinse, final spin and control indicators to display error codes.

thanks

Danby ddw497w will only be about 5 min into cycle when digital code E2 appears it then starts beeping 2 min after this it just stops the unit is only one day old it ran once yesterday fine now i get this...


I just spoke with the Customer Service rep from Danby... She said tht an E2 error has to do with the hoses. Usually it means that the hose is too high to drain properly, there is a kink in the hose or the pump is faulty.

Hope this helps!
