F01 is a very straight forward error and unfortunately it's not good I'm sorry to say. F01 means that the main relay power control board has an internal short. This is not something you can just reset, the board will need to be replaced. The board is mounted below the top panel against the left side wall. Depending on the model number it usually costs about $200-250 for the part but if you're handy you can definitely replace the part yourself because it's all plug and play.
