SOURCE: Not enough water
Be aware that you should remove dishwasher's power cable before touching wires or making resistance measuring !!! Check that the inlet valve get power. In case it does and no water entering the tub, check with multi-meter for solenoid's resistance (disconnect first the wires to it),if no measurement result, you should replace the valve. In case you have a measurement result, remove the solenoid from the valve and check that it's clean from any dirt. In case there is no power to the inlet valve - check that the float switch works. This is usually a small switch attached to a float. The float (usually a cylindrical) located inside the dishwasher at the bottom. As the water level rises, the float rises too. When it reaches the certain height, the float activates its switch, which cuts the electricity to the water inlet valve. If the switch is defective (stuck in the disconnected position)it will prevent power from the inlet valve. The switch is an On/Off switch and you can check it easily by a multi-metr. Good luck !!

Sounds like a bad heating element. This is located in a stainless steel tube under or around the main control box behind the cover around the tub. It is not hard to replace but should be done by a pro. The part is avaliable online.

check to see that the flow switch is working properly, it may not have enough flow on low speed to allow the heater to turn on. Make sure your filter/s is/are clean. If you have a pressure switch instead of a flow switch, it may need to be adjusted or replaced.

SOURCE: Error code reads
'Sn' is a general error message relating to the temperature sensors.
Assuming that you have a Balboa spa pack (M7 version), turn off the power and remove the spa pack cover, you'll find two temperature sensors mounted in the top of the heater tube one at each end. Follow the wiring from the sensor to the plug(s) on the PCB and check that the connections are good, they have a habit of devekoping a poor connection.
If you have a multimeter you could also check the resistance of the two sensors. They should both be the same. If they aren't the same you'll probably have to replace them.
One final thing just to check... Ensure that there are no blockages within the heater. Unless you have service/gate valves you will have to drain the hot tub, unscrew the unions and check inside the heater for debris within the heater assembly.
If you're from the UK I may be able to help regarding parts etc.

SOURCE: the heater isn't heating the
PRS means that the heater is not sensing pressure in the plumbing.
Make sure that the pump basket is clean.
Make sure pump is flowing freely as it should (no blocked skimmers or returns)
Make sure filter pressure is where it should be. If this is a cartridge filter, remove and clean the cartridges. If its a sand filter or a DE filter just do a long backwash.
Make sure any heater bypasses are closed.
If you know the water is flowing freely, and you still see this code, you must replace the pressure switch. It should cost about $35 for the part at a retail store. It is located on the top side panel opposite of the water connections. It looks like a round disk screwed into the header, with two wires coming from it. Just unscrew the old part, and using teflon tape, screw in the new part.
Connect wires, and restart the heater. It does not matter in which place you put the wires.
