The water tap error means the unit thinks water is not entering the tub. If the dishwasher isn't adding any water at all, you need to make sure the dishwasher gets water from your house. If that checks good then replace the electronic water valve on your dishwasher which is the part mounted below the tub where the water supply line connects.

Now in the case that water does enter the dishwasher but you're getting the water tap symbol, it means that your flow meter in the intake assembly isn't sensing properly and the flow meter would need to be replaced.
