    Hi Ginko

    Thanks for the Advice. The above what you have sugested I did already. I have tested all of the components seperatedly and all are funktioning. If all els fails I believe then that the Main PC board got dammaged. So I will replace the PC board and that should sort the problem.

    Thanks

Hi.

Error 4 is internal leakage (overflow).

when this happens often the dishwasher starts with the pump running continuously.

Switch off the power from main circuit breaker, drain the inside of the appliance and clean the drain filter in the bottom panel of the tub. If problem persists, check the drain hose at the back. Ensure that it is not kinked, and that height is as from installation manual.

If that does not work, then the machine is faulty. Repair is done removing the kickplate at the base of the appliance, checking for water leak in there. Disconnecting pump hose and removing debris, testing the overflow switch by running a cycle with its contacts jumped. The inlet valve must also be checked to ensure that it is not leaking.

Turn off power and remove water from inside the appliance. Usually that is enough to sort out the problem.

Regards.

    Hi David.

    If you are sure that you have tested all the rest, replace the control module. When the control module fails, most of the time the appliance doesn't work at all. Replace the module ONLY when you are sure that all the rest is fine and that there is no additional problem.

Hi
E2 error code is a temperature sensor error code.

Remove the plastic black cover on the back and you will see the control board.
On the board you will see a wiring block with 4 thin wires going to it.
Test the 2 wires on the left and the 2 wires on the right with a multi meter. The reading in Kohms (kiloohms) should be the same.
If any are faulty then they will need to be replaced.
If the readings are the same, replace a faulty control board to be rid of the E2 error and your problem.

We have an Error 4 on our KD12DSS-2 Kelvinator Dishwasher, the manual says that there is to much water in the machine, how do i go about cleaning it out, so the error can go away?


Unplugthe power cord to your dishwasher. You can do this by manually removing thedishwasher from the wall and unplugging it, or you can flip the power switch toyour kitchen at the circuit breaker (although you will need light to drain thedishwasher hose). 2 Put on your gloves,and, using your screwdriver, unscrew the screws from the kick plate of yourdishwasher. The kick plate is the panel just below the door of your dishwasher.3 Place your bucket on the floor in front of the dishwasher. 4 Unhook the drainhose by pinching the ends of the clamp and sliding it down the hose. Remove theother end from the pump. There will be two hoses in your dishwasher. The drainhose is the one that leads from the pump to the underneath of your kitchensink. 5 Point the hose into your bucket to drain any debris. Twist and scrunchthe hose to help remove the waste. 6 Test the hose by running water through it,and then reattach your hose in the same manner in which you detached it fromyour dishwasher.
