These dishwasher fault codes will displayed as a digital code, exactly as you will see below, in an LED or LCD panel or display on the dishwasher door.
Please remember to support our site by buying spares from our spare part store here and, if you decide that you really need an engineer please support the local dishwasher repairers that help make this site possible, you can search for a dishwasher repairer using the engineer search.
Like other fault codes these written for dishwasher repairers and not for the general public by Midea and they assume a certain level of competence on the part of the user in diagnostic routines. We have added some notes to try to assist you in determining the nature of the fault you have but, you will still need to investigate each failure on its own merits. For more help and advice on fault finding on a dishwasher please refer to our basic fault finding guide from this link before you begin.
Please check that any dishwasher spares recommended are suitable for use on your particular model and production code or serial number. If you are unsure about the suitability of any spare part please ask to ensure that you get the correct spares for your washing machine. Please, don't guess or assume as spares can be altered on a production run with the same model number having several different alternative components used.
E1 Filling time out
Ordinarily this would point towards a problem with the water supply system. That could be as simple as a lack of water supply through the tap being turned off to a faulty water inlet valve and so on.
E2 Drain timeout
This will almost certainly be either a blocked drain pump or a faulty drain pump.
E3 NTC or element fault
Essentially this fault code is telling you that there is a fault on the dishwasher's heating circuit. This could mean a number of things and the only way to find out is to systematically check each component in the heating circuit for any failures.
this can be caused by several things however the use of 3, 4, and 5-in-one tablets is strongly not recommended in these machines as on some programs it can lead to excessive foaming, especially if you also use salt in your dishwasher.
These dishwashers have a nasty habit of also leaking into the base due to this and it can cause a lot of damage to the dishwasher.
E5 Cannot switch off automatically
E6 Open circuit Thermistor
E7 Short cicuit thermistor

You must understand certain things before you begin or attempt any repairs on your own and we want to make these points very, very clear to anyone that decides to investigate one of these or any other washing machines:
Please do note that manufacturers can and do change fault codes without notice and we cannot guarantee that these error codes will apply to your particular model as all codes apply to a wide range of appliances and not normally any one specific model. To determine if these fault codes do apply to your particular dishwasher model please post a request to confirm this in the forums.
Please note that this list is not exhaustive and may not be 100% accurate as the factory in China do not publish the models that fault codes apply to. It is therefore not possible to say with complete certainty that these codes will apply to every model number listed nor is it possible to say categorically that they may apply to more models than are listed.
