F2E2 is a failure to communicate with the user interface board. This is caused by either a faulty user interface (the board with the buttons) or quite commonly it can be the main wash pump as the main control uses the same wires to communicate with both and a bad pump will interfere with that communication.

There is no easy way to tell which one is the problem but i have found that any evidence of a leak on to the wash pump will cause it to fail.

I am guessing this is a Sears Kenmore Elite Dishwasher were dealing with ?? If so follow below if Not what are we talking about?

The FUNCTION CODE 2 is for a USER INTERFACE issue. The PROBLEM CODE 2 can be:
User Interface cannot communicate with main control Panel. (A).Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power. (B). Check connections of gray wires between LCD display module and P12 connector on the control Panel:
Loose User Interface connection. (A). If connection(s) loose, then reconnect.
Faulty User Interface. (A). Disconnect power and replace LCD display and console.
Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.
If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a technician.

I researched this a little bit and You need to check for any signs of water spray a cheap hose clamp seems to be the cause of a lot of this problems also corrosion some DIY individuals have removed the cable to the main control panel found corrosion and cleaned it up now working fine while control panel has a fault in Communication their is No Diagnostic Mode Available because of lack of communication , hope this helps

My kenmore dishwasher is flashing E2 F2 what do I do.

Since you didn't add the model number for your dishwasher, I can't detail any specific fixes. The F2E2 error usually means that the display panel (user interface panel) isn't communicating with the main control. This could be a sign of a bad panel, a wiring problem (loose wiring harness or the wrong panel being installed) or moisture inside the dishwasher. Unplug the dishwasher then you can check the unit.

A common source of the moisture problem is actually loose hose clamps at the pump. That lets water get into the control wiring. The error will reset after the entire unit dries (2+ weeks). You might find the moisture when you pull the unit out of the cabinet for a built-in model. For the other problems, you open the cover and check the grey wires between the LCD panel and the P12 section on the main control.

If your dishwasher is under warranty or are uncomfortable with electrical wiring, you should contact Sears for service before opening the cover to access the wiring.

I hope this helps.

How do I get error code f2e2 off my dishwasher?

"F2 - A water leak, which if detected will stop water from entering the dishwasher via the inlet valve. You will probably experience the dishwasher not filling properly during a cycle. Possibly caused by a faulty water level indicator, you can also try cleaning the filters and drain if you notice a lot of standing water remaining in the dishwasher basin."

"Look in the bottom of the unit. Something has it stuck, like food."

sorry if this doens't solve your problem. This is what turned up with your keywords in a quick search engine query.
