Disconnect the power to the unit. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher. You will probably find it is full of water. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water. There is a float that will stop the operation of the unit and run the pump if water is in this tray. Test the unit. If there are no leaks, check the drain hose under the sink. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO ABOVE THE TOP OF THE MACHINE THEN TO THE DRAIN. If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overflow into the tray under it.
If there is no water in the pan under the dishwasher there may be a problem with the pressure switch at the side of the pump housing but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.

The Aqua-Stop function is a flood protection feature. You really don't want to be "bridging it"!
It works by using a float switch to detect when the water level gets too high in the wash compartment. It over-rides any wash programme and starts the pump to empty the water out.
Also if water leaks into the bottom of the dishwasher (under the washing compartment) the float will rise with the water level and when it reaches a critical point, it will over-ride any washing programme and run the pump.
However, the pump cannot remove water from under the washing compartment, but as it over-rides the wash programme, it prevents the washer from continuing with any wash cycle, thus preventing any more water from leaking into the bottom of the washer and flooding your house.
For this reason, you should never attempt to "bridge" (whatever that means) modify or disable the aqua-stop feature. If it's been activated, you have a problem which needs to be resolved before you continue to use the washer.

Testimonial: "Thanks the detailed informations."
SOURCE: Hello, i have a Siemens
It's possible that the Aqua-Stop flood protection system has been activated. I can probably help you, but I really need more information.
1. When you start a wash program, can you hear the pump running? - This will be a low pitch humming sound.
2. There is a dome/mushroom shaped plastic protrusion in the bottom of the washing compartment, located behind and between the salt compartment cap and the drain. Can you lift this up (be gentle) or is it already up and can only be pushed down?
Please post this information and I will try to assist you further.
