Bosch SMS Series Dishwasher Fault Codes E15
Water in base
Float sensor in the base has been activated. You can try to empty the base and restart the dishwasher as you will find noted many times in the forums but, if there is a leak this error code will simply be displayed again, you must find the cause of the leak.

but if you have a different model it can be something else

First the source of the leak needs to be identified. pull the machine out from under the counter and remove the left side panel exposing the blue float assembly. Turn the machine on and observe the fill cycle. if water comes out anywhere on the fill mechanism then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. once the machine has filled and begun to cycle cancel the program and drain the unit. observe closly where the leak is happening. a leak during drain usually indicated a leaking drain hose.

You didn't mention what brand dishwaser you are talking about, but if it is a Bosch, they are known for having the impeller (which is in 2 parts) coming apart, so the part of the impeller that has the blades doesn't turn. In other dishwashers, I've seen the holes in the wash arms get clogged, especially if you don't have the removable filter installed correctly, or (if it's a GE), the filter plate on the bottom gets warped, allowing bood and debris to get in the wash arms and clog up the holes. We really need to know the brand and model number of the dishwasher (or any appliance) to be able to help you accurately.

For the manual, try Googling (Hisense)(h12dme)(manual) without parens.

Is the water Hot? ( check in mid cycle using the eye glass method)
the 2180 Model is a bit old but I am sure all parts are still available - Rinse aid ( or Rain Ex as we refer to it) to me is the most important

Yes - the Johnson air gap is common and used with a wide variety of machines
