OK you need to check that you have no blockages to the pump and that the pump is actually working. First thing to do is start it on a program, for the first few seconds it should be pumping out (to clear the dirty water out of the sump area), start it up and tell me if you can actually hear the pump running, if it starts to fill without filling then switch it off. Come back to me with your results. Ironically E1 on Kenwoods is usually a fill error. - Ian
