Let's try to rest the issue. Press and hold the start button for 5 seconds to reset the cycle. Now close the door and let it go through the 2 minutes drain sequence. Now open the door and turn the power off. Wait 15 seconds and start a normal cycle like you would. See if the error occurs again when you start a cycle. If you're sure you have water pressure going to the dishwasher, then the electronic water valve in the back left corner of your dishwasher will need to be replaced because the valve is restricted and needs to be replaced.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
