Candy 2012-80 Dishwasher not emptying

Hi Polarix,
The test is in two parts, the first displays any error code, the next runs a test program. Follow instructions as below.

Passive Test
Turn the M/C off, open the door and close the soap dispenser, Note dishwasher door remains open during this test.
Press & hold down P1, while still holding down P1 turn the M/C on, Release P1 & press it again twice within 10secs, if successful P1 & P2 should light up then go dark again for 5-6 seconds. After which the last error code stored in the Eeprom should appear, (P1&P2 flash in a repeating sequence, note the number of flashes. Turn the M/C off to exit.

Active Test Program
Close the soap dispenser then Run the above instructions again, When you get to the end of the procedure,, close the door, (don't switch the M/C off) A test program should run, you will hear a wash cycle action, let it complete (about 2.5min's, the water should empty) & note any error codes. Read the rest of the forum for additional advice.

I'm not able to find error table.

Can you help me ?
Hello Polarix,
Zipper gives this answer to error code 8 (seen in this forum)

E8 signals a heating error. It can have more than one cause so start by checking the heater resistance & the wiring to it. The heater terminals are at the lower rear of the machine behind a plastic cover. You may be able to get rid of the excess water by lowering the waste hose to floor level & drain it into a bucket or bowl.

Try it and good luck.
