Resolved Question:

I have a viking professional dishwasher which is flashing a "Light China" error code. I went on viking's website and it says it is a state (iu) error & to try resetting. I have tried resetting (holding down start/stop butting), turning power off, and unplugging dishwasher to reset and nothing is helping. This happened a couple weeks ago and I was able to reset and it worked. It's only 3 years old. The dishwasher sounds like it's going to start, then quits after maybe 30 seconds.

Thanks for your help!

UI error means your control board is detecting an internal short in the control board. If it doesn't reset by resetting the power, you will need to replace the control board unfortunately.
