Kept on getting this same code, and pump was very loud. Discovered that drain hose can get crimped or flattened like a garden hose at the rear of the dishwasher, causing the pump to work very hard to drain the tub. Especially since the dishwasher is on a counter top and gets moved from everyday use, and pushed into the wall. Pull the washer away from the wall, and reshape the hose by hand to fix. Once crimped it wants to go that way again, might use some hose clamps to hold the house open at the flattened area.

    I am sorry, but you are not helping at all... I copied your link and it explains how dishwashers work, not how to solve this problem... I have the same problem and, of course, Danby is closed... I guess I will have to wait until tomorrow to get an answer...

Its 8.2.16. I just experienced this. According to the manuel its a water inlet issue. None of my hoses where crimped or pinched or kinked...the dishwasher just kept sounding like it was trying to drain but it couldnt. I took the hoses off the back and low and behold it had gotten a piece of plastic like an earring back stuck in it! ( my son must have knocked it into the dishwasher when he was loading and loading.) But once i cleaned that out it drained and started working like new!

Hi, my dishwasher worked then it decided not to wash anymore. The water comes in and out but the actual wash.... nothing happens. No spraying. Please help.

Your danby dishwasher has 2 motors. One for draining and one for washing. Sounds like your washing pump went bad since u said water goes in and out

My Danby countertop dishwasher won't wash-the dishwasher detergent is never used at the end of the wash and nothing is clean

Was it working before, and now has stopped working? If so, it sounds like it has poor water circulation. It might be caused by a leak. If you have not noticed a leak, it might be clogging due to hard water deposits. Do you live in a region with hard water?

DDW396W how to take it apart manual Imy dishwasher will not drain, and I dont know where to start on taking it apart.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Since this a brand new unit you should be in direct contact with the manufacturer here:

If you are unable to effect repairs yourself.

Please call our CUSTOMER HELP LINE

"1 800 26 DANBY"
and ask for assistance.

What I wil ask you to do is look for any tape or packing material in the bottom of the unit. If there is any tape on the float or flood sensors it will give you an error.

I note that there is no mention of P2 errors in the user's manual here:
http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000069317.pdf

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I get an E4 error message when I turn on the machine.

The first thing I would check is to see if you turned the water valve on under the sink.
