    We have a MJD3000aaw with the same problem. It is the heating element I think and if we put it on 45 C wash it works but we can not find a service person.

    I've got this problem too, only got the Jetclean (not II) - this is driving me crazy - it just won't finish it's cycle. 
    Anyone have any update? I've just put it on the 45c cycle as per the advice above.

The E1 or E2 error code is an Auto-Stop Protection Error, indicating an issue detected by a sensor. This error code will require service. The E3 error code displays when an Abnormal Operation Protection Error has occurred, and activates to protect the unit from damage. This error code will require service.
In this case, you need to drain water and remove the laundry. Then, run the rinse mode to clean the drum. Next, start the technique to make sure that the OC error has disappeared. If the washing machine is not correctly connected to the drain hose, OE, OF, E3 will appear on display.

My dishwasher gives an E3 error

The E3 error code is not a defined error for this dishwasher. If you are sure it is E3 then best option is to give the controller a reset. This is done by

Press the Delay Start + Normal + Power keys at the same time for two seconds to enter Service Inspection Mode.
- "ALL" is displayed for the first three (3) seconds and then "t1" is displayed.

Press OFF at this stage. Do not attempt to run the inspection as this could damage the dishwasher unless you are familiar with the what each mode does.
If the Error E3 keeps coming back then call the Samsung technician.

Error code E3 on Samsung DMS500TRW dishwasher

3E error in Samsung dishwashers normally relates to high temperature error. This means the dishwasher is detecting over 80deg C water temperature. However if it is 5E that means drain error. If your dishwasher is draining correctly then please check the error again.

E3 Error

the E3 error is a result of water temperature not getting to a nominal value within a particular time. This could be caused by several factors like heater faulty, wash pump not working well, wash arms not circulating water as required. Need model number to help you further pin point if possible.

Refer this site for 60 inch dishwasher and this site for 45 inch ones.

What does E3 mean?

E3 not hot enough. This defect can be caused by, but not only, a defective element or clogged spray arms.

Danby dishwasher E3 error

Same issue here so I just got off the phone with Danby. They said the E3 means the water is not hot enough when it goes into the machine. Now I dont know your guys situation but I let the water run hot until I cant touch it anymore, then I turn on the machine and plug it in. So it sounds like the heating mechanism is not working properly and does not heat the water to the appropriate temp to continue with the cycle. I will say that their support was really friendly and she informed me that since it was purchased less than a year ago it would be covered under the warranty. She gave me the number of a local repair shop. Lets just hope they dont tell me nothing is wrong with it because my water temp is fine. I will let ya guys know. Here is the number for Danby that I called. General office: 419-425-5052. Good Luck!
