I pulled the dishwasher , on the left side if it about halfway back down near the bottom you will see a plastic resovoir like , it has two hoses hooked to it , I took it off being careful not to break the seal, then I used a pipe cleaner to get the crud off of the float that is inside the flat looking plastic container . it works like a champ now !

If it is a Samsung, which I imagine it is, then you have too much water getting in to your dishwasher during the fill cycle.
The two most common reasons for this error are: 1) too high of water pressure for your house (it should be about 50 to 70 psi, or thereabouts---Note: You'll need a plumber to fix your PRV valve if your water pressure is above 80 psi) or, 2) your water inlet valve on the dishwasher is bad and letting too much water come in during the fill cycle.
Try to reset the error by turning off the circuit breaker for your dishwasher for about 5 minutes, and then turn it back on and see if that clears out the error. Then, try running another load and if you get the error again, check your water pressure and your water inlet valve.
Step 1: Make sure you have 48 ounces of white vinegar on hand. You will also need an empty sink and a ceramic mug (Do not use a paper cup.)
Step 2: Empty the water in the water reservoir B. Fill and Clean
Step 1: Pour the vinegar into the water reservoir and fill it to the top edge of the clear viewing area.
Step 2: Place a ceramic cup in the drip tray and run a brew cycle. DO NOT USE A K-CUP...just press the large cup button. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the water reservoir is empty, pouring the contents of the cup into the sink after each cycle. Remember to open and close the lid between each cycle.
Step 4: Now fill the reservoir with fresh water and let the brewer stand for 4-hours while it is still on. C. Rinse
Step 1: Ensure the water reservoir is filled with fresh water.
Step 2: Place a ceramic cup on the drip tray and run a regular brew cycle. Once again, DO NOT USE A K-CUP...Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the water reservoir is empty.
Step 4: You may need to perform additional brew cycles if you notice any residual taste.
This is almost certainly the filter to the empty pump blocked. When you power up the machine, the first thing it does is make sure there is no water left over in the tub, if it can't evacuate any water it finds there, it won't go any further. Same on a spin, if after a set time the water hasn't emptied the empty cycle will stop but the spine cycle wont start because there is still water in the drum.

You need to prime the machine with water. Fill the water tank. Plug the
machine in and turn the power on. Instructions state the lights will
flash, but they won't. Blue water drop will illuminate indicating the
machine is empty (the water tank is full, but the pipes in the machine
are empty until you do the following). Place a cup under the steam
wand, and rotate the steam knob fully to the "on" position (fully
clockwise as you view it from the side until you hit the hard stop). No
need to use force, just rotate until you hear the pump turn on. At this
point, you'll hear a pump running, and after 10-30 seconds, water will
be ejected from the wand. Continue until the blue light goes out and
you're ready to brew. At this point, I think the lights flash and it
comes up to temp. One more thing, when using the steam wand, always
turn the knob until the pump engages, or you run the risk of emptying
the water line. Hope this helps and enjoy!
Most diswashers have a complete cycle that lasts over an hour. The machine fills with about 1.5-2 quarts of water, rinses the dishes for a few minutes, then empties the water, then fills again with new water and rinses for a few more minutes, then empties. This is to get a good bit of the looser gunk off the dishes, and to soften up any other stuff that has dried on there. Then the machine fills a third time, the soap door pops open, and it washes for a much longer time to hopefully dissolve away pretty much anything left on the dishes. Then it empties, and does a rinse the soap off cycle, and usually a final cycle that rinses again with a little bit of rinse agent to help them dry quickly.
Jimbo, you are going to need a new inlet valve. This is very easy to change out. Remove the 3 torx screws in the back for the top. Slide it off toward the back. The valve will be on the inside top left. Two quick connect harnesses, a couple of hose clamps and your done. I don't have the part number on hand but you can find it on the tech sheet located behind the bottom panel. Three screws to take that off. Or you can go to repairclinic.com, enter your model number and hunt it down from there. Once you change the valve, your leaking problem will be over. Catriver.
Every cycle has its own water measurements for example: Heavy Wash : 7.2 gal.
so check the manual for further information. And don?t worry there is an Overfill Protector, so you won?t do any damage.
