HI. There is no control switch located under the unit. Only the pump and monitoring thermistor and hoses are located in that area. With that said, the (F2) code will be the result of a high water level occurrence. There are two areas of concern here when this occur. The first will be a faulty water inlet valve. The last area of concern will be a plugged or defective water pump assembly. The only way the kill the power in this case is to either unplug the unit form the outlet, or you could shutdown the appropriate circuit breaker for five minutes. This will force the control to reset. If the (F2) returns after the reset, start by testing the inlet valve for proper functions. If the inlet valve proves to be in good condition, move on to the sump area and inspect for a clogged pump assembly. The entire unit will need to be removed to access the pump, but you may be able to access the sump form inside the unit without removing it. Inspect the fine particle screen first then the pump after that. I will post the inlet testing procedure below. This will most likely be the culprit.

Water inlet testing procedure:

To access the inlet valve remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel. The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it. One hose will lead from the valve to the pump/motor assembly in the center of the dishwasher. Check that the hoses are securely connected to the valve and that there are no kinks in the hoses which could restrict water flow. There are two wires (four, if it has two solenoids) connected to the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced. Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. If your valve has two solenoids, test the second one in the same way as the first. If the solenoid is working properly, move on the the water pump assembly and inspect it for clog's at the filter screen and sump assembly.

No power to my dishwasher

A diswasher is normally plugged into a non-switched outlet under the sink. Make certain the power cord hasn't been knocked out ot the outlet.

Most homes today come pre-wired for a garbage disposal, as well. Normally there will be one duplex jack under the sink, one jack "always on", the other controlled by a wall switch above the counter. If you don't have a garbage disposal, make certain the dishwasher is plugged into the "always on" jack.

Dishwasher does not drain

If you cannot get the diswasher to drain there is some obstruction in the drain line going to the disposal. First turn the power off to the diswasher at the breaker panel then open doors under sink and follow drain line to the disposal there you will find a hose clamp(silver) that you must loosten with a flat blade screw driver ( get a bucket under the disposal) pull the drain line loose and dump out excess water and debris inspect area going into the disosal to make shure it is not clogged up

reverse your proceedure and reconnect the drain

Before trying the dishwasher take some ice cubes and run thewater then put in disposal and turn on that should clean the disposal

try your dishwasher I forgot to mention that theri is a strainer at the bottom of you dishwasher that you can remove to be sure it is not clogged up I assume that you have aready checked that

good luck
