Re: moved into house with no manual...
The user manual is available at this site. But won't say much about F1 error except the flood switch has triggered. This means water has collected under the drawer in the main housing.
As the dishwasher was not used the drain hose must have cracked or the water inlet is leaking.
Water inside the dishwasher needs to be dried even if you fix the leak. check the installation manual on page 7 to find out how to take the drawer out. Then inspect the housing drains etc and the inlet water connection tap. Get a few towels and dry the base and then put the drawer back and test.
If drain hose is crackedt then these need to be replaced.
Make sure you leave the mains power cable disconnected when handling the inside of the dishwasher.
Hope this works for you. It is a nice dishwasher but needs a good deal of care.Do post a comment to let me know.

the dynamo dishwashing stuff has caused foaming which reached the base of the dishdrawer unit causing the flood switch to trip. This gives F1 error. Not sure how much foaming has occured.
Best to turn off power and take power cable out from socket. then empty the drawer using towels. pull out the bottom drawer and wait a day or so to let the foam disappear from the bottom of dishwasher (under the bottom drawer). Connect the power and see if F1 had gone. If not, you need more work. Post a comment based on the above suggestion and I will guide you further if required. Always use Finish dishwasher power only (recommended quantity) as the drawers are small and don't need much detergent.
F1 can mean two things - depending on which drawer it is coming in.
It is a sign that the water is leaking from the drawers into the base of the housing and tripping the flood switch.
To fix this you will have to take the drawers out and dry out the flood switch at the base of the housing. Use towels and hair dryer. Most like the dishwasher detergent is foaming or the door seal is leaking or the outlet drain is cracked. Make sure the mains power is turned off when you are working on the dishwasher.
The other reason is if the thermal cutout is blown in the lower drawer that can cause the F1 to appear in top drawer. But if both drawers are flashing F1 then this is unlikely.
F1 on your dishwasher is the fault code for leaking inside the machine. the water has caused the flood switch to activate. have you put any detergent rather than your normal dishwasher detergent into the machine? if you have, the water probably leaked out of your overflow, if not, then you have a leak on the top drawer or bottom drawer. the easiest way to check is to leave the machine off for a couple of days until it drys then turn on the bottom drawer to go thru a cycle.if the F1 comes up again then the problem is on your bottom drawer. if F1 does not come up then try the top drawer. please reply if you require further help.
There is a leak causing the bottom housing wet so the floor sensor triggers. Dry out the bottom housing F1 will be disappear. However if the leak is not fix, the sam problem will happen again. The leak is from improperly being sealed between the top lid down against the top edge of the tube during operating.
F1 code is water leaking.
1- Dry out the bottom housing to make the F1 disappear.
2- Replace Actuators and the lid seal to prevent this happens again.
The actuators is pulling down from the left and right sides to hold the top lid against the top surface of the tube groove to seal water from coming out during the wash cycle. When actuators are bad, they can not hold the lid down or make the lid tilted to one side hence the leak is coming. When the lid is tilted for a long time the seal is distorted then it has to be replaced since it is out of tube groove shape
F1 flashing means the flood switch is activated. This is located at the base of the housing under the bottom drawer. YOu will have to find if there is water collected at the base by extending out the bottom drawer. Make sure the power is turned off.
Use towels and hair dryer to dry base out. The terminals of the switch will have to dry out as well. Quicker way would be to get the bottom drawer out and fix it back after the drying operation.
Next you will have to find the source of the water collection. Cracked hoses, broken actuator link arm (that holds up the wires and hoses to allow the drawer to move in and out without getting entangled) or foaming inside the drawer due to use of incorrect detergent.
There is a water leak in the bottom housing and a leak sensor detects to give a F1. Pull out the tube and put your hand in the front from the left ( only on this side has enough room to access) with the small towel to dry out the water on the bottom housing. After dry out, unplug the power for at least 24 hours so the sensor can be dried out and reset. However, make sure to fix the leak from the top seal, otherwise, it keep happening.
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.
