We have an 8 year old Gorenje GV60010 integral dishwasher which today started beeping when on an economy cycle. On opening the door an error code E2 was showing with standing water in the bottom and the tablet still within its flap. The filters had been cleaned at the weekend. I emptied the water out completely and set the rinse and hold cycle. The machine filled set off on its cycle but then it sounded like the drain pump was try to run but with a quiet rumble and then beebs started. Opening the door the bottom was full of water again.
Are there any other investigations a DIYer can do bearing in mind getting to the back of the machine is impossible due to being built in? Will disconnecting the waste pipe from the combined sink waste and try to drain any water out help/the problem?
Hello, my name is George..
On a Gorenje, E2 usually refers to a blocked or faulty drain pump.. If you can lower the drain hose to a low position, that will allow the water to drain from the appliance into a bowl.
Switching off the appliance at the wall, you could remove the lower front panel to try access the pump to remove the blockage.. however, this is not too ease on these machines and should be left to an engineer.
If you need an engineer, please give me your postcode that I may try assist you in finding one.
Please rate the assistance given by me..
Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.
