T​he DR code means the system is DRY or not detecting proper or adequate water flowing through the heater. This may be caused by the sensors being inoperative or faulty. An easy way to determine if the sensor is the problem is to bypass the sensor and see if the error goes away, if so bad sensor, if not then the problem is elsewhere and you will need to continue troubleshooting and diagnosing the cause. If you have an bubbles trapped in the system you will need to purge those out as they can also set the sensors off.
