Hi guys I am new to this forum. I picked up this second hand dishwasher and it is now giving me the error code FAE5 after about 30 seconds of running. I didn't even to get to run one load of dishes yet. There is no leaking water and the machine will not go into a wash cycle with this error code showing. I have the technical manual, but cannot figure out how to trouble shoot this code. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers.

On this model you can't order the diverter motor separately, it only comes with the complete sump pump/motor assembly:

Here's the main control board for your model: W11506012

Check for a loose connection at the main control board, like @Storyteller12 found here:
