Hello, my name is George..

You have water in the base of the appliance... you need to remove the dishwasher from its housing and tilt the dishwasher backwards slightly to remove the water.. The dishwasher should then work.. however, the problem may re-appear; if it does you'll need to find the source of the water ingress.

Please rate the assistance & kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

Once rated, further assistance will be given if needed and possible

Yes sorry Lorna.. It is the same problem..

Water ingress into the base of the appliance has tripped the anti flood system.. you need to discard the water and then your appliance will be ok, unless you have a leak... If it happens again you need to find the source of the water ingress and solve it.
