The fault is indicating an inlet valve fault.

Either the valve itself is defective, or there is no power to the valve.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have already replaced the inlet valve. Water is entering the dishwasher when the program starts to run.

Is the water flow stopping at the correct level?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The water starts to fill and then after a few seconds the discharge pump starts.
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Does the pump remain running or does it stop after a short while?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Pump remains running and water remains entering until you turn off power
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Turn off the appliance and unplug it from the power socket.
Tilt the appliance backward at an angle of approx 60degs to see if water comes from the base and to expel any waters from the base if it exists.
If there is water, once it is expelled, turn the program on to check if it is working.

If the problem happens again thereafter then you'll need to remove the right-hand side panel to investigate for leaks.

No water in base of machine no leaks

Well then Check the heater and check the pressure switch.. If those two are ok then I would say you have an issue with your timer module
