The flood switch has been activated. This can happen if a hose busts or something, but more often than not it's because you put something too tall in, and the lid that seals the drawer could not close all the way.
If you don't want to pay a technician you can probably solve the problem by drying it out yourself.
Switch the unit OFF at the mains.
Open the lower drawer. There is a tab on each side that you click and then can slide the drawer off its runners.
Use a towel to mop up as much water as possible, and then get a hair dryer onto it to dry any remaining moisture.
Then slide the drawer back in and let the tabs click back into place.
If the F1 still shows there may still be some water, OR you could have a busted hose or something.

On most laptops there is usually a symbol of an antenna or
something along those lines to illustrate wifi connectivity on the funtion keys
(F1, F2, etc..) Press the function key 'Fn' and the key with the wifi symbol
Sometimes there is a switch located along the front of the laptop or on the sides, otherwise the way to activate/deactivate Wireless is by pushing a combination of the Fn Key (Generally in the very bottom left of the keyboard) and a designated "F" key. If you look at all your F keys (F1 to F12) there should be a small symbol representing Wireless, it's generally a small Antenna emitting radio waves.
Once you've found the key, hold down Fn and tap that key and you should notice a small picture show up on your screen regarding the state of your Wireless.
Assuming you are getting the F1 error in both drawers.
This means there is water at the base of the housing under the bottom drawer.
Turn power off and take the drawer out. You will have to pull out the plastic pins on either side and get the front cover off. This will enable you to pull the drawer out from the slide bar for better access. Use towels and hair dryer to get rid of all the water. The flood switch is mounted on the power board. Use hair dryer to dry this out.
Put everthing back and turn power on.
Post a comment if this is not fixed or the F1 is only coming in one of the drawers. Please rate this solution.
I am assuming this F1 error is coming in only one drawer and that you are able to run the second drawer as normal.
In the case of your dishwasher the F1 error occured because the foam would have overflowed over the drawer top into the base of the unit. This would have triggered a flood switch which is there to protect water damage to the dishwasher. You can either wait a few more days until the base of the dishwasher drawer unit dries up or you can dry it yourself.
To dry the base, extend the drawer as far out as possible (turn mains power off first). The use a few towels and push them on to the base. Pull the towels out and dry the base especially the centre of it with a hair dryer.
The F1 should disappear once you put power back on .
Hope this helps. You have a very helful child who sets the dishwasher up. I have to keep pushing my children to even empty it.
Flashing wrench means a fault code has been triggered.
F1 is the fault code when flood switch at base of dishwasher cabinet turns on.
This can occur due to several reasons when moisture gets to the base of the drawer cabinet.
You will have to turn the power off and extend the drawer out as much as possible to expose the back of the cabinet. Take towels and a hair dryer to dry the base. Once the flood switch gets dry the problem will go away.
The main thing is why did the water get there. You could have a crack in the hose or simply the detergent may have caused too much foam.
