remove and clean pump

There is a pan under the base of the machine with a sensor in it. You have a leak, but you can't see it because it is in the pan.

E4 means that the dishwasher thinks there is water below the tub in the base pan. Make sure you don't have a leak from one of your hose connections and if that all checks good, call warranty since the unit is brand new because either your control board is bad or there is a leak from the factory if it is in warranty.

Does it cycle i.e. fill, wash, rinse, and drain?

If yes, then heater relay likely has failed (closed).

What model number?

GE Dishwashers | Answered on Jan 18, 2020

Sooo with my model just for anyone looking this up. My son loves pushing buttons and one of his favorite is the “delayed start” button. After researching, cleaning out the filter, unplugging the dishwasher and most everything short of pulling my hair out, I found out that the little nugget had pressed the delayed wash button. Which, you would think would reset when you reset the machine but evidently not. Pushed the delayed start button and cycled through 12 hrs and bingo, it ran....

Not a fun way to spend the night but at least I saved money by not having to call out a repair man. ??

The one way flapper in the drain pump has broken off.

Did you install it, or did the vendor install it?
If it is brand new, contact the vendor for assistance or replacement under warranty

E4 means dishwasher sensor is detecting the dishwasher is over filling. First thing I would check is the float. You will want to make sure it travels up and down freely. Open your dishwasher door all the way. Look on the right hand side (could be in a different location on your model) you will see a round thing. Kind of looks like a air hockey pusher. Try moving it slowly up and down making sure it’s not stuck open.
If this didn’t work then I would lean towards a faulty sensor.
It’s possible you could have a faulty board as well.
It is my opinion unplugging it will have no effect on this particular issue.
I hope this information has helped. God bless and have a great day.
