Please check at both ends of the drain hose and confirm that you do nit have a leak. Also, please confirm that water is not leaking directly under the dishwasher.
If you are certain that you do not have a real leak, check the impeller (under the mesh filter in the sump area beneath the lower dish rack) is not damaged and is firmly in place.
The E1 error code is a Leakage Error, detected by the motor spinning faster than it should if the unit is filled with water.
Please report back with what you find. Good Luck!

Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
Hope this helps!

doubt he actually back flushed the line. I bet that after he cleared the filter and removed debris under the filter, he started a quick cycle, then after the dishwasher was filled, he pressed the two buttons together that make up "Cancel" , held for 3 seconds and the unit automatically began to pump the water out and prepared to shutdown.
The cancel button can be used that way anytime it is needed.
Hope that helps.
