All the information that I have found about this particular problem indicates that the "F1" error is a flood or overflow alarm. It's generally caused by a clog in the drain line and/or tub not sealing properly when closed.
If this is a drawer style dishwasher there is a lid in the equipment cabinet that must seat properly on the drawer when it is closed. If you place items in the dishwasher that are too tall for the drawer lid to seat properly, it will not seal and water will splash over the sides of the tub during the wash cycle.
Another common problem is a clogged or kinked drain line. Remove the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged. Check it at BOTH ends.
The alarm is activated by a float switch in the bottom tray of the dishwasher. Look to see if this is any standing water in the bottom tray. If there is any water, or signs of wetness, the alarm will not clear until it is dried out. I found a couple of recommendations to clear the alarm. The first involved removing the dishwasher from where it is installed and tilting it at a 45 degree angle to pour any standing water out. Another method is to dry the bottom out with towels as best you can, and then use a hair dryer to dry any residual water. I hope I'm on the right track with this and I hope this solves your problem. Post back if you have any further questions.
CAUTION: UNPLUG the dishwasher or turn off the breaker BEFORE servicing inside the cabinet.

you have to remove the bottom drawer and remove the water from the base.theres two push in tabs on the bottom sides dd603 or if its a dd602/601 theres plugs that pull out remove them and the front panel the drawer will lift out far enough to get access.but you may find its leaking.hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a Fisher Paykel
just had the same F1 error message. I figured the drain lines were clogged so i hooked my compressor up to them and blew air in the lines for about 5 seconds at 60 psi. It is not giving me the error message anymore and seems to be running fine.

It means your filter is dirty. Remove metal plate at bottom & scrub with a toothbrush. Clean arms as well.
Clean all around the door & pull out the lift out filter, scrub clean with a toothbrush.
