My DW67s also did this. I assume they are very similar models. According to the instruction manual, E3 means longer than usual water heating time or water not heating.
The heating element is not like the conventional one like what resembles the element in an electric oven. Instead, the element wraps around a water pipe and heats the water while one of the pumps circulates the water. That pump can become stiff due to lack of use because of a rubber seal which can get dry and tight if not used for long periods of time. Ensure the machine is unplugged, tap is off and emptied of dish racks and water before laying it on its side. Access is via the underside cover. Simply free up the pump again by rotating it with your finger. A sensor which is screwed onto the side of the pump can be removed for finger access. If you feel much resistance in the rotation of the pump at first, then after it becomes looser, then you have probably solved the problem. If it is really jammed then perhaps you have a chicken bone or something stuck in it and requires further disassembly. If it was already freely spinning and the problem isn't solved then perhaps the water heater itself isn't working or the pump motor is burnt out or an electrical connection somewhere is faulty.
