Look carefully at your dishwasher keyboard, to see what key is nearest (above or below) the lighted lock symbol. Usually it's the Heated Dry button. Whatever it is, press and hold that key for 5 seconds. That should unlock you dishwaser and you can now use it normally.

The manual lists that error code as faulty water supply. I am guessing your heater may be malfunctioning. Try to run it on cold and see if it works.

The first thing to do is visually check to make sure the water connections from the sump assembly to the top spray arm is all in good shape and connected, also make sure the spray arms ports are clear of any foreign material. Make sure that the top rack is seating properly to the water tube in the back of the machine. If this is all good it is possible that the diverter valve is malfunctioning. If it comes down to the diverter valve I would recommend that an authorized repair company assist you as they can be a trick and quite involved.

If you broke a glass, the odds are that a piece of glass has jammed the impeller on the drain pump and the buzzing you hear is the pump trying to run. In order to fix this the dishwasher will need to be removed and tilted back. Be careful not to damage the floor or countertop and the unit should be disconnected from power for safety. Once the unit is pulled out and tilted back the drain pump is easily accessed. Put a cakepan or something under the drain pump to keep the mess to a minimum. Remove the drain pump and remove your broken glass. If you do not feel comfortable with a job as such please use and authorized repair company.
I hope this helps

The first question I have is did this issue start after a garbage disposal was installed? There is a plug in a new disposal that needs to be removed. If this is not the case the easiest thing to do is pull the dishwasher out. Be careful not to damage the floor or countertop. Tip the dishwasher back and put a cakepan or something under the drain pump to keep the mess to a minimum.
Remove the drain pump. Make sure you check the impeller is not loose on the shaft or broken and of course clean the ports.

I hope this helps.

This is a job that you can do, but take your time. First there is a pedal repair kit that you will need. I have attached a link that will help you with that.

As the compactor is heavy be careful not to damage the floor when you remove it and of course make sure it is unplugged before starting for safety. I recommend sitting it on a packing blanket or rug. Then remove the kick/toe panel and follow the directions in the repair kit. Plug in and test before reinstalling.
