Can I open the dishwasher while it is running?

"Most dishwashers are equipped with a water stop, making the program stop immediately when the door is opened and meaning no water will come out. With some models this can cause problems over time. With built-in dishwashers it is possible that frequently opening the dishwasher while running may cause water damage to surrounging cabinets because of the steam that is released."

I opened it by mistake and now the message “PAUSED” appears. What can I do? Kind regards and thanks in advance.

If I believe there is a problem while in a programme can I stop and restart or does it go back to the beginning of the programme?

wqp4-tg1 keeps leaking water. It seems that the water stop system is broken. How can it be repaired?
