The anti-flood system has been triggered means that water remains in base because leakage or overflow. In this case, in order to prevent flooding, drain pump running continuously.
Remedy: you should first remove the water from the bottom of the dishwasher and determine leakage.
If you work around the dishwasher, you always take care that appliance must be disconnected from the power supply.

The bottom "Y" 3 point hose at the bottom connected to main motor is of poor quality and does have 3 wire clamps. The hose does perforate and small pin hole causes water at the bottom to trigger the anti flood system with warning lights flashing and pump motor on ...

The problem was solved by opening the machine and finding that the bottom "Y" pipe that has 3 inputs is of extremely poor quality and perforates with pin holes allowing a small amount of water to squirt out. This triggers the anti flood and error status lights flash. The outlet pump is activated and machine does not do anything. You need to replace this hose or like I modified it to work from a 32mm Y plastic junction available from most hardware shops. The wire clamps for this was replaced by "jubilee" screw tight clamps.
I worked on a table and also removed the "Brick" placed at the bottom for balance purposes by cutting the back plastic down with a saw. This made the job very easy...

Testimonial: "Thanks, this was the correct answer and solved the problem. "
Easy fix, had same problem on our. behind the red lights there is the electrc stuff, when you open/close the machine the solderings crack. remove screws until you can get off the panel, then there is some small hooks that hold the board, loosen all contacts and take out the board, check the solderings around the relais and re-solder them, i resoldered all spots on our board.
