Check to see if you have any switches on your dishwasher that could by pass a rinse cycle. Use a hotter temparture when washing, Check your water level,check your filters on your inlet hose top and bottom. When it gets to a rinse cycle you should hear it drain out and bring in fresh water. you could change to a liquid detergent. Dont over load your dishwasher. make sure you are using rinse aid and try adjusting it up one setting. Shiney glasses means your rinse add is working. NZL

SOURCE: dishwasher issue

Have had this problem twice on my DWI614. First time engineer came out and I watched what he did and asked questions. He removed panel at bottom of dishwasher (2 screws) after removing facia panel from kitchen as it is a built in dishwasher. To the right is the drain pump. Remove 1 retaining screw and hose retaining clip. Ease out the drain pump and make sure to have some cloth beneath as residual water will flush out. Before I did this the second time I removed as much water from inside with a small cup first. Both times I had blockages in the drain pump. First was a piece of glass and second some food. I also pulled the drain pipe forward and blew through to make sure path to sink was clear. Clear out and reassemble. Start a simple program before putting the front back panel back on and you can touch the drain opump and feel it working as the water drains properly. That was my fix both times, good luck.

Sounds like you need a new water inlet valve. It's not shutting off completely, so water slowly enters the machine even while it isn't running.

SOURCE: dishwasher leaving a white film on dishes after wash/dry cycle

Well, that usually happens if the water in the area has too much alkali metals, such as calcium and magnesium.
Try putting some salt together with the detergent before you start the cycle.
And if it still does, try washing the finished dishes again with clean water, i mean, without detergent...

My kenwood kdw1274w is leaking from under it can you help and bit a lot of water


Check your hoses underneath the dish washer. After a while, they sometimes start to leak where they connect to the pump, etc. Also, sometimes they can crack and start leaking. I would replace the hoses, unless they look fine. Then you should just tighten the clamps on the hoses, if you can.

My kenwood KDW12SL3A dishwasher dysplays E3 error every time I use it. dishes don't get cleaned properly. Can I fix it myself? if not how much will it cost me to get it fixed by a professional? thank you


Hi

E3 error code neans the water is not being heated to the required temperature in the machine.

This may be either a defective heating element or faulty thermostat.

It is unlikely you can fix this yourself.

Depending on what is wrong it might cost you around $150

SHOWING E3 ON DISHWASHER


Had the same problem (apart from the code) and the answer is to stop putting plastic in the machine ! It seems the dishwashers need the heat radiated from the Ceramic plates, stell knives etc to help dry. The plastic simply absorbs some water and then your dishwahser spends most of its drying time trying to get that water out again. Also Plastic doesn't radiate any heat to help. As soon as we stopped putting plastic plates and tupperware containers in, hey presto the dishes are drying again

Kenwood dishwasher flashing E3 towards end of programme and not finishing cycle


As far as I know, E3 on a Kenwood is related to the temperature sensor, when you open it, are the dishes warm?

E3 showing on Kenwood model KDW243A


E3 means longer heating time. Usually this indicates the heater element has failed.

My Kenwood Dish washer KDW243A has the Code E3 showing, its working but not heating up the water


If you inspect the heating element at the bottom of the dishwasher, you will probably find damage. Replacing the element is the next step.

Good Luck!

Kenwood dishwasher Comes up E3


I do not know the Kenwood dishwasher, hence I do not know what the E3 error is, but many dishwashers require a sustained pressure of at least 30 psi.
Can you please post the model number of your Kenwood dishwasher?

Sounds as though the drain is blocked partially. E4 is the overfill code. Try cleaning out the drain.
