    Hi. I will buy you a beer using paypal. Meanwhile, the dishwasher is
    showing F8 and E01 error again, although it was really late in the cycle
    (before I cleaned, the water didn’t get in anyway). What else can I do? The
    machine works better if I put it away from the wall and the hose is “flat”.
    If I put the machine close to the wall, the erros show up immediately. Ty!
