Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!

The dishwasher is in a flood routine. If you access the mechanical area below the tub, you will find water in the base of the machine. Once that water is dried up, it should restore normal operation. Of course, if it leaks again, you will need to address the source of the leak.

ok, it seems to drain ok though? I manually put some water into the machine and it drained the water fine.
Expert:  Kelly replied 8 months ago.

Does it drain straight away once you put it in?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No the water sits there until I start the machine.
Expert:  Kelly replied 8 months ago.

So when you start the machine, it just drains, though, no other action?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
just drains. Then four flashing lights and a persistent beeping noise and the cycle does not start.
Expert:  Kelly replied 8 months ago.

Okay, so you need to dry out that base. Let me know what you find.
