Charles :

Hello, and thanks for your question! My name is XXXXX XXXXX Im happy to assist you today!!

Charles :

The error code 3 is the error code that indicates the heating element is not heating or the temp sensor is not reading the temp correctly

Charles :

Hi

Customer:

Thanks for the info Charles.

Customer:

Is there a way to fix this?

Charles :

your very welcome

Charles :

how old is your washer?

Customer:

about 5 year old

Charles :

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX has had some pretty serious issues.

Customer:

grea news...

Charles :

The error code 4 also

Charles :

It could just be the heating element

Charles :

Are you thinking of trying the repair yourself?

Customer:

ok but I knew that already after enquiring/looking for info online....

Customer:

if possible yes :-)

Charles :

When you look in the washer, the element should be located at the bottom.

Customer:

which element?

Customer:

the heating one?

Charles :

The heater element. It should be a thin metal tube

Charles :

that runs in a loop

Customer:

The dishwasher's temperature seems to be fine when in cycle as it reaches about 65 degrees...

Charles :

Ok, If the water is heating up then its probably the sensor.

Customer:

That was my first thought...

Charles :

They run about $30 US

Customer:

so what should I do then?

Customer:

I've have quite a few issues with this dishwasher over the last year or so...

Charles :

My honest opinion would that if the washer is giving you several issues then I would replace it. These appliances are only designed to last between 8-12 years on average. If your having this many issues with it, it will probably continue to give you more issues

Charles :

I wish I had better news for you

Customer:

the issues I had were error code 4 (twice..and that I fixed) and now error code 3

Customer:

my mistake. we've only had it for 3 years not 5

Charles :

ok, thanks. Im trying to locate a schematic for you. brb

Customer:

ok

Charles :

I cant seem to find a break down on your washer,

Charles :

Would you like to try and locate a sensor for you?

Charles :

sorry, would you like ME to located the sensor for you

Customer:

it'd be great indeed.

Customer:

Thanks

Charles :

www.bigwarehousespares.com

Charles :

here is the best I found.

Charles :

You should be able to get to the sensor by removing the bottom panel located at the front bottom of the washer

Customer:

Is this website in australia?

Charles :

Yes it is

Customer:

i think it is rather http://www.bigwarehouse.com.au

Charles :

Your right, sorry about that

Customer:

no worries :-)

Charles :

been a long day, lol

Customer:

I know exactly what you mean :-)

Customer:

So you think this sensor definitely is the cause of the problem?

Charles :

I cant guarantee it without actually being there but that is what I am thinking it is.

Customer:

All right so the best thing to do would be to call a diswasher repairer ...

Charles :

I would just to be sure. I would hate to see you replace parts that are good.

Customer:

I would hate that for sure (and so would my wallet!)
