You need the control panel to reset before anything else can happen. To do this TURN OFF THE PLUG SOCKET FIRST AND UNPLUG. Then you need to drain ALL the water from the machine. Turn off the water supply feed and place the wastage pipe as low to the floor as poss ( 1-2" off floor). Water will gush out so use a large shallow tray and keep emptying the tray. Tilt the dishwasher over slightly to make sure all the water is out.
This will allow the control panel to reset itself which wouldn't normally happen if the base of the dishwasher was holding even a small amount of water.
Re connect the water, plug back in , select the RESET setting on the dial and close the door and switch on.
Leave for about 20 seconds and then turn off.
Rotate the selector switch to "A" Intensive wash and switch
I found this on another site and it really did work for me

I've never found personal ranting to work myself. However F1 is meant to be a flood warning, there's a sensor in the bottom of the drawer unit that stops the dishwasher if water accumulates in the casing, not the drawers!
So the error could be caused by a leaky hose, a broken or fouled lid or a blocked drain hose stopping the drawer from pumping out, at least these are the problems I've heard of or had.
TURN THE POWER OFF BEFORE TRYING THE FOLLOWING.
To see if you have water in the unit you need to remove the lower drawer, to do this open the lower drawer and you'll find the drawer release clips on each side of the drawer in the corner to the front and at the bottom. When doing this always support the front of the drawer in one hand while releasing the clips with the other. To release the clip push it in and slide it back 3-4cm while gently lifting the front of the drawer (don't try to lift it out, you only want to make the clip slide back easier!). Repeat this with each clip.
The drawer is on telescopic side rails, so while supporting the front you need to slide each side back, the clips you released are at the end of each rail and you can slide these easily by feeling just under the edge of the drawer. When they're both slid to the back you should find that the drawer will slide further forward and you can lift it out but don't try and pull it right out because all the hoses and wires are connected, just have a towel or something that you can put on the floor to protect the drawer and leave it there.
You should now be able to see into the base of the unit and see if there's water there. The sensor is attached to the bottom panel in the casing, if there's water puddled here you may have a hose or lid leak, you'll need to dry the casing out (thorougly, probably with a hair dryer before you can clear the F1 error).
On older models the lid motors on either side of the unit (they were white) did have a reputation for breaking, if you see water splashed around the sides it might be one of these that's gone, check for tell-tale signs for leaky hoses too (that would be water where it's not meant to be).
To replace motors and hoses is up to you.

The LE error code can mean that the impeller is damaged or there is some debris blocking the the sump area underneath the filter or the wash motor has failed. In that order.
Remove the spray arm and filter (9 phillips screws) - inspect impeller for damage, with flashlight, look everywhere for debris (watch out for broken glass!) Reassemble and test.
If problems continue, schedule as service call focused on the wash pump/motor.
