This error code may occur due to a drain issue resulting from combined (and not fully proper) use of the dishwasher and garbage disposer. Check the drain hose and the disposer’s inlet. The former should be placed higher than the latter. If not, water from the disposer may drain back into the drain line, carry debris into it and cause a clog. Take steps to clear the clog (if any).
