Hi my name is ***** ***** E3 is a water heating error, if the water is not heated up to the required setting in 60 minutes the microprocessor indicates an error. This is usually just a heater failure - fit a new heater.
Would you now kindly rate the information given by selecting from the star rating system at the top of the page, thank you for using JA and if you need further help come back to me.
hi there, i have had people talking about a thermostat limiter. is there one which i could test first before getting an element.
Best thing to do is check continuity across the heater element contacts - that will tell you if the heater is faulty. Its fairly rare for a thermistor to go faulty but if you give me about an hour I will get you some readings both are in the base of the appliance.
hi there. there is continuity through the element but not through the reset thermal limiter
Are you referring to the thermal cut-outs on the side of the heater assembly?
hi there, no this is a toc which screws to the underside of the machine.
OK reset the toc and try the appliance - see if you now get the water heated. Take not though that if the thermal cutout has tripped out you may have a problem with either the operating thermostat or quantity of water in the wash cavity during the wash cycle.
