Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher
F2 means that the rotor (PN 525884P) is sensed to not be turning, It could be a small piece of food debris, a tiny fragment of a shell or broken glass, has gotten lodged in the wash impeller, or it could be a seized bearing. The buzzing sound is most likely a burr on the lower portion of the wash rotor. Remove the rack, then the filter plate (the large silver plate with all the holes in it), and then the wash impeller (the blue finned "fan" in the middle). While looking at the lower rotor, be sure that its fins are crisp and sharp with no flashing or burrs. Remove burrs with a razor blade. Does the fan spin freely? If not, try a few drops of lubricating oil on the bearings while working the rotor back and forth trying to free it up. Is there anything in the cup that would prevent the rotor from turning? (fragment of glass, shell, etc)

Looks like you do not have the user manual for this dishwasher.
Refer this site.
on page 24. F2 means the motor is having some problems.
You can easily take the motor rotor out for checking it. I am assuming the dishwasher was making some grinding noises before the fault appeared. It could be just a simple thing as a hard food waste item sitting in the cavity. (a bone piece or seed). Go to page 21 of manual and remove the filter plate. The rotor is attached to the impeller. Get it out and inspect. Also check the channel between the drain sump and rotor cavity. Use a thin rigid wire to clean it.
A replacement rotor can be got from this place if you are in US.
