Question about Dishwashers
Error code E4......I have the definitive answer.
All the recommendations to tilt the machine are totally wrong!!!!! It may work in the short term but is a bodge-fix and covers up the "real" problem - you have a water leak- its as plain as that.
There is nothing wrong with the Kenwood and it has a 'Flood Sensor' that is filling with your leaked water.
I too was suckered into this quick fix but it didnt work for me; then I spoke to a neighbour who is also a dishwaher repair man.
We removed the machine , removed both side-panels (yes its easy for a DIY), dried out the water from the bottom pan (the sensor sits in a small recess right in the middle of the bottom pan). The machine was switched on and we checked for a leak; now there are many pipes and you need to observe just where the leak is. In my case the water was pouring from a broken pipe, but worse still it was leaking right onto the mains electricity !!!!!!!
So DONT mess with bodge fixes - they may kill you!!!

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.
