    I had a problem with the whirlpool APD5966 showing a fault code F8.
    If you clean the bottom of the dish washer , unplug it for 10minutes, turn it on .. it will show the fault code F8 .. then just hold the start button in until the dishwasher starts... it worked for me.

Does anyone know how much it costs to fix a samsung dishwasher that shows e3 code? Is it a big fault or simple fix?

you may have a problem on the draining system. Previous cycle not fully drained and holding off the new cycle.
remove the drain line from its discharge position and hook up a 5 gal container for it to drain in ( maintaining the necessary height for the anti syphon loop )
Select programme 7 which should allow the drain pump to kick in straight away
You should be able to hear the pump running at the bottom of the machine and observe a discharge from the hose.
The chances are the pump needs removing and cleaning.
or - the drain line where the machine discharges is backing up and not allowing a free discharge.

Miele LaPerla Dishwasher showed fault code F174 at 27 hours operation. How can I get a copy of the Miele fault codes? I pay for Remote Monitor and did not receive an alert. What is fault code F174?

Hi - I have not come across a fault code F147 on a miele dishwasher, the highest being F112, are you sure its not F47 instead, this relates to a faulty electronic controller unit.

From what I know of LaPerla the model G2830 series and even the faults does not have a F147 amongst the chart.

A 11 is a heater problem. It is given a certain amount of time to reach the proper temp then the fault code A 11 comes on. The heat element may not be working. If you select no heat (if available) it may not show the fault.
