Is there water in the base?
yes underneath the dishwasher
E15 indicates water is in the base. If the code keeps coming back then it means you have a leak somewhere and will need to find it to fix it.

Very hard to determine where the leak would be without being there. Check hoses for pin holes or anything. I need the model number to let you know where the float is.
Okay give me a minute to locate that model number.
Okay on the left side do you see the chamber where the water goes into?
yes, it should have a white plastic rod that is connected to it and goes to a small microswitch.
No you dont need to remove the door or I haven't never. DOes the rod move freely?
There should be no water in the chamber so clear all that out as well. Make sure the rod moves freely and is connected and the switch is not stuck.
The rod is connected to the chamber or should be.
Can you post a picture please?
Okay, that disc is the float. Make sure it is not stuck and nothing obstructing it.
Here is the float switch here is the float
Did you check that the float is not stuck?
This is the pressure chamber, do you see it?
Yes. Here is a video that will help you. Not your model but will give you an idea where it is.
Yes, it is possible that the switch is faulty and could also be the control board.
Do you have a multimeter?
okay, test the switch for continuity
No. Remove the kick panel to get access to the float switch. Pull off the wires from the float switch terminals. Remember to label the wires by pulling them one by one. This will help you if you need to replace the float switch. Set the switch in ON position by pulling down the lever.
It should look like this.
Hold the probes of the multimeter at the switch terminals. Your multimeter should read zero or slightly above zero. If you get any other reading, you have a bad float switch.
Did it have 2 or 3 wires connected?
was that in the up position? What does it read while in down position?
Okay, the switch is bad and will need to be replaced.
Not a problem. Glad I could help.
