Welcome and thank you for trusting your technical issue with Just Answer Pearl!
I am Tech Michael and I will be assisting you today.
I have some questions for you in order to assist you the best way possible.

How old is your dishwasher?
Also how did it flood?
Did it just overfill?
Thank you
Tech Michael
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Machine is 26 months old.
It did not overfill, I think.
I put an item in which had washing up liquid on by mistake, water leaked from bottom of door. I then put some vinegar in to disperse the big amount of foam.... Lights were flashing but I could reset it and it all drained out...
When I opened the door again no water was /is in the machine but the same lights ( 3 red and 1 blue) are flashing and I can't stop it....
Which means the overflow and or anti leak system has been activated....
How can I reset machine.... As I was told I have to do.
Thanks
Rita

Hi Rita thanks sorry for the delay but we had a power outage here.
Try this before we go further.
Please turn off power to the dishwasher at the mains, then wait 10 full minutes and then turn it back on and please let me know if that helps?
If it does great! Please rate favorable. If not please dont rate yet simply respond to me so I can advise you further on this:-)
Thank you

Sorry, that did not work…….


Switched it off at the mains


When switched back on all the lights had stopped flashing,


But when I switched on a washing program the same lights started flashing again…….


Other ideas?

Expert:  Michael replied 3 years ago.

Hi Rita, this may very well be the main control going bad, but it could still be the float switch or even a clogged salt line.
Let me check into this for you and I will have the answer for you in the morning:-)
Thank you for your patience.
Tech Michael
