Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

F2 means that the dishwasher is in "flood mode" so it will continue to run the drain motor until the issue is fixed unless you turn the circuit breaker off. You will need to remove the lower front panel below the door and look below the tub in the base pan to see if water has collected. If you see water, just try it all up using a paper towel after you flip the circuit breaker off to the dishwasher. Once it's all dry, start another cycle and just watch closely to make sure something isn't leaking.

On the other hand, if you don't see pooled water in the base pan below the tub, then that means that your pressure switch has just failed and will need to be replaced. Below is a link to a video that shows the location of the part that will need to be replaced.
