Question about Dishwashers
SOURCE: Error code FA diplomat model
This fixed mine, the base was flooded. I took off the bottom front pannel and discovered it full of water and sludge, I mopped it out and cleaned it the best i could and made sure that none of the wires/connections were wet. (I unplugged it first ! ). Then put the cover back on and tried it.
Works like a dream now.
I know this is better late than never but i've been searching half the morning for an answer and only just found a suggestion that steered me in that direction. So i thought i'd answer this so that someone else might not waste the morning like i have.

Tips for a great answer:
It is possible that the
machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from
the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must
initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work
when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these
points must be checked or the fault
relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a

water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there
is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What
is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch
must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the
motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be
good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn
around to inject with pressure. If so
the pump must be checked for clogging.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water.
