Customer Question

hi there, I have a built in ikea renlig dw45 dishwasher. I was wondering if there is anyway to turn off the anti-flood (I believe that is the issue) without having to unscrew it and pull it out (I am currently on crutches).
JA: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?
Customer: Tried running a few test cycles and it always stops about 5 minutes in and starts beeping also, I've reset the machine and turned the power off and on
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: I do yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I threw a lot of bowls in there that were full of water so I assume it's due to that

If water has gotten in the area below the tub and activated the flood program, that water will need to be dried out. You may be able to remove the access panel from below the door to get limited access to the base and suck it out with a wet vac or soak it up with towels. Are you able to remove that lower access panel?

There is no way to reset it without accessing the area below the tub or, at the very least, pulling the machine out to tip it.
