Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
Usually this symptom also shows an F7 error code. You will need to remove the lower wash arm (NOTE INSTALLED POSITION) Also you will need to remove the metal grate under the wash arm tower. Inside there is a glass tube that senses debris. Clean out the sump area and wipe the glass tube clean. Reinstall everything exactly as your removed it. The installation of the lower wash arm can be fussy.
While your cleaning things also check the entire drain hose from the sump to the sink connection for kinks or obstructions. If you have an Air-Gap remove the cover, (Note again the installed position of the air gap upper plastic cap that has an internal U shaped water passage) unscrew the plastic nut in the top and check for debris inside the air gap water passage. At the sink connection be it a plumbing connection or a garbage disposal connection make sure the drain port is clear. This should stop the repeated start button routine.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
