Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher Paykel Intuitive Eco Washer IWL15
Was it the same error last time? This problem is of course only suppose to be fixed by a calling your authorized service center. If you give me the actual model of your unit I can assist you further. There is a service manual online available. It may not be your exact model but it should be very close and the fault codes should be the same.
F7 is Communications Time-Out error. The motor control micro has crashed and is not responding to communications requests. The hardware communications link from console to motor micro has broken. An external device is holding the communications line low.
Once I have more information and the actual model I can assist you further. If that is your model then you can review the exact steps the service technician would take to trouble shoot the problem. For this fault it says to replace the electronic controller.
Though I would contact the service center as there are specialized tools that they may be able to reset the electronic controller with, and that may save you money. If you need their contact info or have any other questions please let me know.

Hi Steve. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this brand is problematic. Since the problem is the same as 6 months ago call the tech and complain. The part should be good for a year. Sounds to me like the fill drain sensor is bad again. Find out up front if he will come back for nothing or a small set fee. If he won't cooperate get his name and then ask to speak to his supervisor. If you don't get satisfaction threaten and do report them to the better business bureau. If you get no satisfaction let me know and i will talk u through changing the fill drain sensor again.

HI, this is a communication link code. The best case scenario is a broken hardware communications link from the console to the motor microprocessor. This could be a bad wire harness, or maybe a defective Main control board as well. you can confirm by tracing all wiring harnesses inside the unit. make sure all wires are connected to there respective contacts tightly and securely as well. check the drawer limit switch for tight wire connects as well. if the harnesses all look ok and they are connected securely, this will confirm a defective Main control board. replace it in this case. it has failed.

This could be the issue with your Drain hose that is either clogged or kinked and you need to clean them.Use the diagrams in the manual to locate your dishwasher's drain hose.
You should see this under the sink. Check both connections to see if there is any water dripping, which is a sign of a possible drain-hose clog. Check the outside of the hose for any visible bulges. If the hose is broken or decayed, you will need to replace it. Disconnect the drain hose at both connection points. You may need a small adjustable wrench to do this. Stagnant water may be trapped in the hose, so remove it carefully and pour any trapped water down the sink. Straighten the hose and look through it. If you can see obstructions, the drain hose is likely the cause of your drainage problems. Flush out all of the debris with very hot water from the sink, and then replace the drain hose, tightening it well at both connection points.
If thats no the issue then the problem could be because of water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. If the fault appears again then unfortunately you'll need to contact Authorised Repair Technician.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
