I have an S51E50X1GB/03 dishwasher. I opened the door mid-cycle

Customer Question

I have an S51E50X1GB/03 dishwasher. I opened the door mid-cycle because I am a fool. I then pressed start again before closing the door. It didn't start again and has not been sitting with water in all night. I've just bailed it, checked the filter basket and tried to reset using the 3 second hold on the start button. To no avail. I've powered down at the mains and switched back on. Runs through a couple of start-up noises but nothing more. Ideas? How do I reboot completely? It's now cleaned out and empty.

Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

Are there any error codes or flashing leds?

When you start any new cycle, the drain pump should run first for about 45 seconds, does this happen? If so, what happens next?
