The 6-1 error code means the unit sees no water entering in the dishwasher.

So are you saying that your not able to program the unit and press start and close the door and it will not do ANYTHING but give you this code?

Or are you able to program and get it to count down and after a few minutes you get this code?

And is the water supply turned on to the dishwasher?
