DL630 Light 1 is flashing rapidly after start of cycle and no water is entering dishwasher compartment. I've cleaned the filters, what does the error message mean please?
Light 1 flashing is the anti flood error code. Water has leaked into the base of the dishwasher and has activated the flood switch which stops the dishwasher from filling with water.
What you need to do on this is pull the dishwasher out from under the unit and lean it backwards and the water will drain out from the base there so you may need a towel for that part.
Once the water is out stand it up right and retry it and that should stop the light from flashing and allow the dishwasher to work again.
Then see how it goes from there as if it does it again then theres a leak under there which you need to find and fix to cure this.
That's what the error code means so try that and see what you find.
Just wondering how you got on with the dishwasher as the question is still open?
Do you need anymore help on this?
