This may seem like a silly question, but have you checked the vent. If it is clogged or blocked, the sensor is going to prevent the element from coming on.

I had the same problem with a Whirlpool ADP 6515, led flashes 6 times, pause and repeat.
Open the door, remove the 2 screws that hold the control panel (1 top left, 1 top right). Gently lift the control panel up and away from the door to reveal the wiring, controllers etc. My controller was a Flextronics UCB-IC-EBL-P7-M3-HE1. Look at the connectors, one of them is marked on the controller as NTC and has 2 blue wires, push down on the white plastic tab below it and disconnect it (pull it horizontally away from the controller)..
I used a multimeter on 200k range and measured the resistance by probing those 2 blue wires and the NTC temperature sensor measured about 50k ohms +/- 5k depending on the room temperature. And that is correct for that NTC. (I knew the NTC was good as I had removed it from underneath the machine previously and measured the resistance whilst holding it under the hot tap as it went from cold water to hot. It's a Negative Temperature Coefficient sensor so the resistance reduces as it gets hotter).
So problem was definitely not that.
Solution was simple, on the connector itself, just use a very small flat bladed watchmakers type screwdriver to clean the pin contact faces and then gently pinch the pins of each wire closer together so that they bites tighter onto the controller.when you reconnect it.
Refit the control panel and problem solved.
Conclusion; the contact resistance of the connector to the controller added to the total resistance of the NTC and made the dishwasher think that the water was below the safe activation of the motor cycle, e.g. it thought the water was iced up.
Job done !

Simplest answer is a blockage in the pipe from the dispenser to the Drum.
If you take out the dispenser draw, sometimes little tricky, there is normally a lip at the back that stops you pulling it out accidentally, you just need to depress this or wiggle it out. once out Clean it, some dispensers have a cap over the softener dispenser. you should be able to pull this off, if it does not work, put in the sink and poor warm water down the whole on the other side of the softener dispenser.
Once water flows through, clean the rest of the draw and where the draw fits and pop it back in and you should be good to go.
Keep it clean, say once every few months.

According to the manufacturer, the error means the door could not lock. Check the door for obstructions when you close. To remove error, reboot the washer.
