A failure in the Start/Resume button also can cause this problem Door switch assembly, Control panel, Electronic control board

Check incoming water temperature. If incoming water temperature is below 120 degrees, the heating element may not heat the water to 150 degrees. If incoming water temperature is above 150 degrees the heating element may not stay on for 10 minutes so the sanitation error may occur. If incoming water temperature is okay, check the heating element for damage. Replace the heating element if it's damaged or it doesn't heat Heating element
