how do I check my dishwasher when the E-24 for error code is explainn? when the E-24 error code is explainn on your dishwashers display please switch off and unplug your appliance. This error code means that there is a water drainage issue.
The first step you need to take is to check that the inlet and outlet hoses behind the appliance are not trapped or kinked.
If the dishwasher is built in, you will need to access the cupboard from the side.
If you’re not sure how to do that please follow the mounting and installation instructions of the dishwasher. When replacing the dishwasher pull carefully on the hoses as you push the dishwasher back into position so that they are not trapped because this will restrict the water flow Dishwashers are usually connected to the household drainage system and this also needs to be checked.
unscrew the collar detach the hose and check it is not blocked by any residues then unscrew the spigot and also check that this is not blocked either check that the end of the spigot has been cut off during installation and the blocking plug inside has been removed.
reattach the spigot securely and then the hose ensuring it is tightly connected using the collar the third check you need to make is the wastewater pump which may be blocked and causing the error it is located below the filter inside the dishwasher near to the lower spray arm.
Unscrew and remove the filter unit from the base of the dishwasher please use protective gloves as sharp objects such as glass fragments can collect in the pump area.
Use a tea spoon to unclip the pump cover.
pull it out and lift it away then check the pump area and remove any objects which might be preventing the pump impeller from rotating Finally, check that the pump impeller can turn freely and all obstructions are removed The pump cover can then be replaced back into position. You will hear a click sound when it is secured. replace the filter unit and twist clockwise to ensure the marker and the arrow line up and the cover is properly engaged. You can now plug in turn on and use the appliance. Test it using the pre-wash program Please check and follow these steps.
