Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you.

ERR3(Error 3) indicates there is fault with the water temperature.

It means the water temperature might be very low and would not be adequate enough for cleaning your dishes.The ideal water temperature required is about 55 to 70 degree Celsius.Check the temperature..

If the water is entering at that temperature and the temperature is not maintained inside the dishwasher it is an heating element failure , if not the problem is from the hot water coming to the dishwasher and it would be a big job to fix it,

thank you for answering. Yes, temperature is always around 40 degrees so I connected hot water tap but not working. do you think I can fix myself or ask someone?

Well a heating element is not hard to replace at all its just take out and put in if you have any local hardware or appliance repair ships near you you can pick the part up there.
