This is such an easy repair, you'll be shocked and surprised! The reason this is happening is that the computer or timer has detected a "flood" condition and has permanently energized the drain pump to clear the "flood".
What you'll need to fix it...
1.) Shop-Vac (for vacuuming water) with a crevice tool (like one of these)
2.) T20 Torx bit with a driver. Torx sizing here. (You can get a set at Home Depot or Lowes)
All you gotta do now is get down on the floor and remove the kick panel. Then remove the screws holding the water valve and lift it up out of its' plastic holding. Now your shop-vac w/ crevice tool can be used. Stick the crevice tool in there (about 10") and vacuum up all the water that's been trapped in the basin. (you may need a flashlight to see what's going on back in there...) After the water is gone, your DW will work fine.
Here's how it works... About 10" behind the inlet valve is a "float" made of styrofoam. When water gets into the basin, the float rises and eventually trips a "flood condition" switch. This switch shuts the unit down and will only allow the drain pump to operate. So what you want to do is get the water out of the basin.
There may be a reason for the basin flooding, though. Suds (caused by too much (or the wrong) detergent), an actual water leak from the valve, etc... So after you get the water out of there and the unit is working again, you may want to monitor it (like, only run it when someone is home) for a while just to make sure that a real flood does not occur.
Hope this helps.

When the machine is runing, the water is spraying bottom tube up to wash the dishes,
The lid is supposed to seal from the the top to prevent the leak. When you pull out the drwaer, you see the top groove, this is for this purpose. touching inside of the edge top lid , you will feel the seal around the edge, if this is bad it causes a leak.
However if this is good but the actuators from both sides left and right didn't not function by holding the lid down at the begining of the wash cycle, it also causes a leak.
I'm sure you have a leak, and the leak activate the floor switch to cause the pump keep running as long as the power is plig in. I didn't have to replace the floor switch after waiting for 48 hour drying out unplug power. Now the problem is to fin out whether the Lid seal or the actuator. To do that we have to fix the Draining problem so we can access the troubleshooting.
1- Un Plug the power.
2- Pulll the drawer halfway.
3- Dry out under the top lid seal as well as the enire surface if possible.
3- Put in a small tower from the left below the bottom drawer to dry out the wet area. There is only small access from the left, since the right will not have enough room to access.
3- Try to dry out all the surface area as far as you could reach.
4-After it is done, wait for 48 hours so the floor sensor can be dry out itself before plugging the power cord.
At this time No more pump noise is in running mode. Your problem is fixed as stated.
However, do not operate it since the root cause of the problem has not addressed yet, As soon as you run it, the same problem will happens again.
Let me know the progress and we can proceed to next level. I don't want to put the long procedure here to discourage you. Good luck.
BTW your current parts were from the first original design. The replacement parts will be from a better design point of view, and hopefully they will be the better ones.

Howdy. Flashing light on the switch, shows a glass? At any rate your overflow protection switch is activated. Probable cause; plugged or defective exhaust hose that does not allow pumping to go faster than water coming in, too high a water level. Clean the entire system first!
Is your exhaust hose going up to about threequarters as high as the machine? You must have this uphill twist and turn in the drain system.
A little water remains in the sensor and it thinks you are flooded. Force air through the pump in the floor until all is clear, a clean plumber's helper is ideal. Keep doing this until you get the last bit of water out of the sensor. When you get it running watch the machine (First time) carefully. You do not want a flood, that's why Asko put this safety device in place.

Hi berniekeenan - Error code CE typically indicates a communication issue between the user interface and main control board. Try unplugging the unit or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the refrigerator back on. If the error code continues, I recommend scheduling service so a technician can accurately diagnose and repair your refrigerator.

Hi twillli62 - Typically error code CE indicates that the unit has detected a communication failure. A professional will need to check the wiring between the main control board and the user interface board. Depending on the actual diagnoses from the certified technician, either part will need replacing.
