The E3 error means that the control sees an issue with water level. It is too low.

  • Is the water supply turned on and does it fill even a little?

1. Low water pressure - check for clogged hose strainer; ensure the site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures.

2. Make sure probes are clean. (See Cleaning.)

3. No water pressure - main water supply valves may not be working.

4. Anti-siphon valve - located in the lower left area of the chamber just above the water line. Drain the machine and insert toothpick or similar object into hole to verify ball (3⁄16" OD) is free to float.

5. Delime machine.
