Thanks for the answer. This happened back in August and the dishwasher has been unplugged and unused since then. Where can I find this sensor since there seems to be no water to be found and had plenty of time to sit and dry out? I plugged it in a little bit ago and recieved the same fault code.
i watched video and cannot get the machine to enter diagnostic mode. motor continues to run and LCD readout continues with F1 code
Holding the Start button and lock button for 5 seconds only locks and unlocks the controls. Any other idea how to access the diagnostic to see if actuators are the issue? Remember as soon as I plug it in, it flashes F1 code and begins running the motor. I also noticed the light inside shows it is on Rinse mode.
