Hi
Is the drain pump running all the time when you turn it on?

yes

Ok when you took apart the draining system water may have leaked out and collected in the base of the dishwasher and has activated the flood switch.
Lie the machine on its back and see if any water comes out from the base. You may need a towel for that part.
Once that's cleared stand it up right and retry the dishwasher again and see how it goes from there.
Finger crossed it will start to fill from there and work again.
Let me know how it goes.

washer is built in. how do i tip it up, sorry?
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 1 year ago.
You need to pull it out from under the unit to do this. Sorry with you saying you took a part the drainage system I assumed you removed the pump from there.
What you need to do is pull it out from under the unit and then you can lie it on its back from there.
