Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! That error means that the valve that changes to distribute the water to the upper and lower spray arm is not able to change position. Is the pump area clean of any debris and hard water mineral deposits? Those are most common to cause those valves to fail.

Kelly thank you for the prompt response. I had checked around the pump etc to no avail, I will now try a dishwasher cleaner, I am not sure where else to check ?

If a good cleaning does not restore function, the diverter valve will likely need to be replaced. This valve is mounted under the machine and will require a good deal of disassembly to replace.
