Asko 1885 Dishwasher fills and drains but won't wash

Is this the sign of the circulation motor gone bad and needs replacing???

Either that, or check the pump by removing the toe panel at the bottom of the unit, The circ pump is the big one at the back.

I have replace the circulation pump motor on the Asko Diswaher 1885 and that works fine. Have run a cycle and dishwasher washes fine with no leaks. Problem I'm having now is when the cycle is finished all the LED lights on the control panel blink along with an "F2" code. The manual states the "F2" signifies there is a high level of water.
However, only a sliver of water remains in the drain cup and the sound of the motor just keeps gurgling (not sure if this is circ pump or drain pump) The only way I can stop the blinking of the control panel is to kill the power to the dishwasher at the breaker box.
In earlier troubleshooting..I let the dishwasher sit for a while (say six hours or so) and re-apply the power and this seems to reset the control panel. After another wash the same thing happens.
What do you suggest oh Master of Appliantology???

What I do notice is that if I turn the power off of the unit..let it sit overnight... then turn the power back on.. the LED lights are not flashing anymore, and I can run any wash cycle until it finishes which then gives me the "F2" flashing light sequence again.
It's as if it's not getting an exit code and the control panel doesn't know it's complete.
I can't simply turn it off and reset the panel. It will flash the "F2" code again when the power is turned back on. Only when it sits overnight..or longer than several hours that it will reset back to normal.
What's this all aboot , eh?

Oh.. Master of Appliantology... how insulant I have been for doubting your pearls of wisdom!!!! I took the kick plate out as you suggested.. turned a cycle on and voila!!!! A leak !!!
Where the plastic flange meets the bottom of the diswasher tub ( that surrounds the drain inside the diswasher) water gushes out during a cycle. But of course does not when cycle is off.
Is there a sensor that detects this water leakage and gives the "F2" code?? If I interrupt the cycle before it finishes I can restart as many times as I need to. Just can't let it finish on it's own.
Does this mean a washer or impeller is bad that allows the water to leak through? If so How do you get to it and make repairs???
Your humble servant...

OK...I see the white lock ring that has to come off clockwise. I can turn it approx. 1/4 turn but because of all the soap grit or whatever I can't seem to turn it anymore than that. As you know it has 4 plastic prongs on the inside of the ring.
Is there a special tool or specific tool to use to unscrew this ring so I won't injure myself??
Again... many thanks....

After replacing the "O" lock ring in the bottom of the Asko dishwasher...I still see water coming out underneath the drain area under the tub. This only happens during the drain cycle.
The Asko dishwasher washes a cycle fine but when the drain occurs then you can see the water coming out from around the bottom of the drain. Of course this puts the washer in "F2" code - which indicates high water level...
What else could it be?
