Without the manufacturer and model number, it is very hard to help much. If this dishwasher is several years old, this may be the beginning of many, many problems so you may want to consider replacing the entire dishwasher.
It you want to attempt a repair, you start with removing the door panel screws around and near the door gasket. When you get it open, take some pictures of what you see. Closeups to hep you reassemble.
Zero in on the rinse agent dispenser reservoir and look for leaks. Identify what has failed and order either locally or on line.
Good Luck!

The easy way to fix it would be to empty it and run a quick wash. hopefully the latch is just stuck and it will open up.

Please remember to rate me.

usual cause is rinse agent not being taken. check that level of rinse agent lowers over time

1. No waterMake sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.

It sound like a pump issue. The pump is attached to the motor and forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. Look if the pump's impeller (a round plastic fan blade-type of device) spins around. In case it doesn't spin, look if it doesn't blocked or stuck from any other reason. Good luck

There is a pan under the base of the machine with a sensor in it. You have a leak, but you can't see it because it is in the pan.

E4 means that the dishwasher thinks there is water below the tub in the base pan. Make sure you don't have a leak from one of your hose connections and if that all checks good, call warranty since the unit is brand new because either your control board is bad or there is a leak from the factory if it is in warranty.

Does it cycle i.e. fill, wash, rinse, and drain?

If yes, then heater relay likely has failed (closed).

What model number?

GE Dishwashers | Answered on Jan 18, 2020

Sooo with my model just for anyone looking this up. My son loves pushing buttons and one of his favorite is the “delayed start” button. After researching, cleaning out the filter, unplugging the dishwasher and most everything short of pulling my hair out, I found out that the little nugget had pressed the delayed wash button. Which, you would think would reset when you reset the machine but evidently not. Pushed the delayed start button and cycled through 12 hrs and bingo, it ran....

Not a fun way to spend the night but at least I saved money by not having to call out a repair man. ??
