Question about Hoover 24 in. HD98E Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher Hoover HD98E

Hi, My problem is that when I start a cycle the proframme starts and goes through its normal pgramme for a while but then stops and E3 Starts to flash on the display and when I open the machine the waste water is still there. I start it again and the waste goes away so there is no problem with the waste pipe. I wonder if anyone out there knows what E3 being displayed is and what is going wrong. Mick

    It is the same problem, but an engineer has told me the heater element and the thermostat are working fine as he has tested the temperture whilst it was running.

    However periodically the E3 error is still reported. is this something I can fix?

    My dishwasher is producing a pervasive odour like mouldy dankness....during wash cycles it will seemingly randomly produce the E3 message and then if you put the machine onto a cycle it will clear and be fine, until the next time. It also frequently does not correctly release the tablet leaving the flap open but the tablet stuck, al wet and gummy, to the door

E3 means water is "not heating" for this model. Check the heating element, thermostat/thermistor or printed circuit board with power OFF.

Arms not rotating

pull out washer disconnect lines unplug it open the door pull out the racks(room to work) look for any stray parts laying at the bottom(small black belt,srews any metal debris)if you find any of that try to find where it came off of.it sounds like a pump problem easy fix connect hoses to pump and mount the pump.check all hoses and spray tips thoroughly

Dishwasher starts for seconds but, then shuts off

Check that water supply is available and that water inlet valve is operational. Filling unit is usually the first step of any wash program and dishwasher is shutting down because float valve is not actuated.

you have probably flooded the base of the machine and it now is in flood mode take side panel off and have a look and drain water away common fault


It's probably the heater element that has gone, but it could be a simpler fault like the pressure switch not activating. See this video it should give you the general idea
