gagaweaver, couple of things you want to check here. Check the upper spray arm for any clogged holes or cracks along the edges. Position it in the 12:00 position and run the dishwasher for a little, open the door and verify that it has rotated. Make sure the water entering the dishwasher is min. 120 degrees, use a thermometer. Makes sure that there is no large pans or dishes blocking the upper spray arm from spraying onto the inner door. If all that checks out. You will have to remove the lower spray arm, filter cover and chopper cover to make sure the chopper screen is not coated or plugged up. If it is, it will prevent a good flow of water to the upper spray arm. Catriver..post back.

I've had the same problem on my Indesit (IDL-730, IDL730) and after pouring in salt until full for ages, without the light going out, I finally decided to do the reverse.
I left it to run down the salt over a couple of months, until well empty (not ideal, but I was getting desperate!), and then finally refilled it.
Problem solved - salt error light was no longer on
All I can figure is that a blockage had set in and casued the issue. Leaving it to clear over time sorted it.
Hope this helps in your situation.

If the dry cycle has a problem, check these:
Heating element Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes. If the element is burned out, the dishes won't dry properly, and you need to replace the element.
Drying fan Many high-priced dishwashers have a small fan that blows air or heated air into the dishwasher to speed up the drying process. If the fan is defective, you need to replace it.
Thermostat Some dishwashers have a thermostat that monitors the drying temperature. If the thermostat is defective, the heating element may not cycle on or off properly. If that's the problem, you need to replace the thermostat

the heating element is probably bad.
i have a idl 600 here in naples italy and it would fill up and go into alarm light 2 and 4 and pump out the water.
heating element cost 28 euro and i changed it out.
had to change the clamps as well.
if you ohm the element it should show about 100 ohms.
if it is open its bad.
the mother board does some checks and if anything fails it alarms out and drains the water after a few minuts

Check the rinse aid dispenser is set properly to release a small amount of rinse aid not full and not off but the first click should be fine,then under the bottom rack there are filters remove then and clean them regular,also remember to wash the dishes the same night that you use them ,leaving them over nite will result in the food going hard and you will need a hammer and chizel to remove some dried food,last please remember this is a dishwasher not a food disposal unit you need to rinse the dishes and scrap off loose food before washing
