It sounds like the flood protection system has been activated. This is most likely due to water in the bottom of the dishwasher (under the washing compartment) or it could be due to a faulty float or float switch.
The first thing to do is check the float inside the dishwasher. It's the dome/mushroom shape plastic part in the bottom of the wash compartment. Have a feel around under the dome and check there isn't anything trapped underneath it (maybe cutlery or a build up of waste). If something is stuck in there, simply removing it should be enough to get you running again.
If it's clean underneath try pushing the dome down gently in case it's just stuck in the up position. If it pushes down, lift it up and down a few more times, clean underneath it and make sure it drops down on it's own when you lift it and let go. If it falls freely, you're good to go.
If there's nothing under the float and it moves up and down freely, next check for water in the bottom of the washer. To do this, tilt the washer forwards then backwards to about 20 degrees. Obviously, if it's under-counter you'll need to pull it right out before doing this. If you see a pool of water on the floor then you have water leaking into the bottom of the washer!
There are several possible causes of this - some are simple and easy to correct - but you should do these checks first, then post back here for further assistance.

It is possible there is a short in the electric system in the dishwasher. There are two possibilities
1. there is a leak to the earth due to some water leakage and this causes the earth relay to trip.
2. the dishwasher motor coil or capacitor is shorted and drops the circuit breaker.
If it is related to 1, then best to take the dishwasher out from the cabinet and check with multimeter if power plug Live is showing short with Earth connection. You will have to find source of the water leak onto the power board.
If it is related to 2, then isolate the motor capacitor and try again. But 2 is unlikely if the breaker trips even if the dishwasher is not turned on.
F1 code indicates an overfill condition which may cause when dishwasher can’t pump out dirty water due to a plugged drain hose.
open dishwasher fully ,dry up as much water as possible then put a hair dryer on hot and direct into the back of the cabinet you will see a grey plastic cover on the bottom floor this is the sensor run on full for about 5 - 10 minutes making sure the heat go into that area. Also don’t overheat your hair dryer, when finished close the dishwasher shut and start your normal cycle.
The dishwasher doesn't have to be between cabinets, but it does have to be enclosed on both sides, and it can't support the countertop. You can put an end panel there, which is just a finished panel with trim on the front to match the cabinets. Make sure it is straight and securely attachedd to both the floor and the countertop. Also make sure that you can route the water and drain lines out the other side.
Step1 Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely. Step 2 If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary. Step 3 Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet. Step 4 Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement. Step 5 Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.
