HiE1 error code is a time out filling.What you need to do is check the water supply is fully turned on and the water pressure is good.Then pull the dishwasher out and check the fill hose isn't linked at the back as this could cause the error code.If all the above is fine then it's possibly either the water valve itself faulty, pressure switch or the control board.But check the above first and see what you find and let me know.Regards
Customer: replied 3 months ago. are the connections at the back of the dishwasher. I've checked the water pressure and that's ok.

If the hoses at the back are fine and and its still giving the error code then you need to check the water valve and pressure switch if you can and see if theres a fault on them.

To access them you need to remove both side panels then you can access the parts from underneath.
