The detergent tablet dispenser door is energized by a solenoid wired directly to timer control board. The drawer will normally open releasing the tablet when the machine starts filling.

If the Drawer does not release the tablet, then either dispenser solenoid is faulty, or timer board mast be replaced.

If the machine is functional but does not release, then the technician will probably need to replace the detergent table dispenser solenoid, that often is built in with dispenser assembly.

You can call support ringing the number listed at the end of the owners manual.

On completion of cycle -dishes cold and v/wet.Tablet partially dissolved, dishes nearly clean!!

It is no longer heating the water. It could be a blown fuse on the heater circuit, or a failed temperature sensor, but more likely the heater element itself has failed.

If you are in any doubt about the ability to properly clean your dishes etc, then get an engineer to check it out.
You could always wash the dishes yourself?

I packed the dishwasher, switched it on the water was running in and after about a minute the tap symbol came on and the dshwasher kept going the for a a couple of hours with no dishes being washed. there...

Its possible that water is entering the base of the machine below the washing chamber and therefore the machine thinks it is flooding so it tries to drain continuously and will not let the wash pump come on.
There are a lot of reasons why the base could be flooding ranging from a blocked delivery pipe to a faulty inlet valve.
Pull the machine forward. Remove left hand side cover and look into the base of the machine. If water is found then it is leaking there from somewhere. Then the fun begins finding how its getting there.
Might be a Technician job from there on.

Not cleaning the dshes. Material lrft on dishes. Suspect poor water flow.

Fill with salt. Clean out all rotary arms. And put a dishwasher cleaner through. The rotary arms get blocked with lime scale.

I've had this issue; the software drivers that make your tablet work aren't installed. Go to Wacom's site (I've provided a link) to download the software for your tablet.

Dishes are wet and the not drying

Try using just the rinse aid in the tablets, don't put anymore rinse aid in the dispenser(This may take a while for it to empty) this should help with the drying.
failing that look at manual that will tell you how to put the extra heat programme on
