Hello Debbe,

Does the dishwasher fill with water, or is full and fails to drain?
Can you provide additional detail so that we may accurately troubleshoot? Also include the complete model number. It should be etched or stamped on a plate inside the door, or elsewhere on the washer.

Thank you!

How many cycles have you attempted? It may take a few cycles before the detergent pack becomes soft enough to run out and allow the latch to function properly.
Otherwise, if you can reply back with additional information such as model number, someone here on Fixya will be able to provide assistance.

Best regards,

Check the door seal carefully for accumulated food debris or grease build up. If its a built in model with a wooden door panel, make sure the door gasket closes fully before the wooden panel makes contact with the cabinet - sometimes poor adjustment here prevent s the door gasket from closing fully. Water or rinse aid leaks from the machine must be treated seriously and mended, as they pose a significant fire risk. Rinse aid tends to dissolve electrical wiring insulation!
You may need to adjust the door catch on integrated machines to ensure the door closes correctly.

The problem is insufficient water.
There are a few issues that cause this, and most are pretty easy to fix. Check this site for instructions and pictures:

I know nothing of dishwashers but such check valves are usually included to prevent syphon-back when there is no air-break in the discharge.
Personally I prefer a high discharge with an air-break but many prefer a permanently fixed discharge which is usually low and in some conditions syphon-back can happen. In this case a check valve is advisable even if local building regulations don't require it.

Check drain pump spins freely by hand, then check for voltage to pump. If voltage present then most likely drain pump faulty.If no voltage present then most likely relay fault on pcb
