This error F51 means that your water heater relay isn't engaging. Now typically that is due to the circulation pump not running which makes since because you said the dishwasher hasn't been run for 6 month which can cause the circulation pump to seize up. You can try to break the impeller free and below is a video that shows you the process. If that doesn't work, you need to replace the circulation pump I'm sorry to say.
