Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries - OK how handy are you with handtools? What we have to do is take the appliance out first.

Power & water off first, you then need to get the base or a side panel off and mop up the water in the base which once dried out will reset the flood protection device. Once this is done you need to run a number of pre-wash programs through, as these are only cold programs it wont foam up and you should be able to start using the dishwasher again ~ Ian
