It leaked before leading to this.
1- Unplug the power.
2- Dry out the leak.
3- Before taking off the lid seal, check if Lid actuator working by going to diagnostic mode. 4- Select LD.
5-Pull the drawer half way out so you can see the lid going down or not when you turn on by pressing lock button.
6- Press the lock button again to release the Lid.
7- Most the time it is a Lid actuator problem and your seal look good, then you replace the Lid actuator only.
8- If it is a problem with the Lid actuator and your seal look bad then replace all .

Check at bottom housing both top and bottom drawers for leaks.
Pull the tube out, on the left side below the tub you can access to touch the bottom housing. Dry it out with a tower. Un plug the power cord at least 24 hor so the flood sensor can be dried out before pluggin it back.
However, if you don't fix this leak, the sam F1 problem will happen again.
There is not much clogging up in filter. If you expect something clogged up, you have to take the spraying arm off then take out the bottom stainless steel with a lot of holes out to see the impeller clean or not. Good luck.

Turn off the main power to the dishwasher.
I am assuming you are getting F1 error code flashing (if your drawers have LCD display) or the LEDs are flashing if you have intergrated drawers.
The flood switch is located at the base of the drawer tub. You will have to either extend the drawers out fully or take them out depending on the amount of water that would have collected at the base of the tubs. Get some towels and dry the base out. You may also need a hair dryer.
Once the flood switch dries off the drawer should work ok when you turn back the power.
The causes of the flood switch trriggering is either too much foam in detergent (use recommended detergent) or leak in water in or drain pipe.
Please remember to rate the solution if it helps or post a comment if not.
