the E3 error message tells you what you already know ..the water temp is not reaching its intended value ... that could be a bad temp sensor or the trouble could be the heating element itself or the electronics that power it ... the heating element can be tested with an ohm meter .. it should have low resistance (not open) ... if its good then i would suspect the electronic module that controls it or the heat sensor unit .. .. sure sounds like a design problem to me .. since there are a lot of these machine with the same trouble .. the factory seems to be having trouble fixing them .. they often give up and offer a new machine at a reduced price ..

Testimonial: "Thank you for quick reply."
On the BDW13 Baumatic dishwasher I had the same problem, as I fix gas boilers I ohm tested the heating element, which was ok, I then tipped the machine on its side and took the bottom off, be careful, always disconnect the electric and water, underneath there are two thermostats, I know them as thermistors on a boiler, they screw into the brackets that hold the element in place inside the dishwasher, I unscrewed them after removing the wire connectors(pull off) I then ohm tested them and found one was an open circuit(faulty) the problem is, the one that was faulty is a non-self-resetting type, which means it has to be replaced once it has tripped, which is a real pain, the other one resets after it has cooled down.
