Question about Hotpoint Dishwashers
The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.
The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the detailed reply. I will investigate further. I am getting some water in the base after each cut-out but only a few thimbles full but assume that this could be explained by any of the defects you have listed."
That particular code is an input flow sensor error and could be caused by several things. The likely problems in order of ease of fixing are:
1) Inadequate flow of water into the dishwasher: This could be caused by a blockage in the water line. Check the input strainer and the shutoff valve for debris.
2) Bad flow sensor: In the event of adequate water flow, the input flow sensor might be sending a faulty signal to the control board. In such a case the flow sensor will need to be replaced.
3) Bad control board: If neither of the problems above solve the problem, then the problem is most likely a faulty control board which will require replacement.

I managed to clean the filter inside the dishwasher and drain a little residual water. I then re-plugged in the appliance and the anti-flood device seemed to reset and I have n't had any problems since.
