Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

This is an error stating that the dishwasher can't drain or water is in the base pan below the tub. You'll need to remove the kick panel and the access panel behind that to soak up the water in the base pan with a towel so that the error goes away. Either that, or uninstall the dishwasher and tip it forward to drain out the water. If the water comes back, then you either have a leak or the drain isn't working and the hose is either clogged or the pump has failed and will need to be replaced.
