The heater unit is faulty. This is located at the base of the drawer and can be replaced by taking the drawer out.

The heater unit is available from FP in USA.

My dishwasher has f3 on the display and is beeping and none of the buttons on it are working what is wrong

if its a F3 error on a 2 draw fisher paykel, this means the temp sensor has detected that the water is hotter than 85 degrees celcius either the water coming into the machine is too hot, that or the heater plate has shorted possibly causing it to stay on for to long or the the temp sensor itself is faulty and giving false readings, if none of these things you will be looking at a control board

Have the same problem with brand new, unused DMS500TR dishwasher. Rang Samsung, they said F3 is a water leak error.

I have a whirlpool sixth sense dishwasher and

F3 error fault code
The heating cycle is not working. The error is indicated after several electronic checks are done over a 25 minute period. Therefore if the heater heats too slowly or the heater is open circuit or indeed the electronic control PCB is defective, each of these will indicate F3. The twist is, if the NTC is fluctuating in its reading it also can indicate F3 and not F1.
