I had the same happen to me this morning the F1 code came up, after
looking around for a manual on what code was what I found this site ,
reading what had been posted here I gave it a go
I tilted the washer backward to drain the water and what do you know it worked again.
after the first cycle it flooded again, this time I removed the water feed pipes from inside, removed the fine s/steel screen and any other parts that could be removed,
What I found was that after many years of service of washing including jars that still had the paper labels, it was the paper that turned into paper pulp blocking the drain screen
so after cleaning and re-installing everything I started a new wash test cycle
The dishwasher works better now than it has for a long long time
So when you get the F1 code don't just call for the service guy to come out , take it apart yourself and just give everything a good clean and it will work like new again

I had the above problem also just last night. I have lost my manual, so turned off the power and basically just dried the interior using a sponge and finished off with the hair dryer (as suggested) and she's all go now. Thankyou so much for saving me $110.

I had the F1 error in the window and the dishwasher would not turn off. The owners manual says to shut power off and contact service technician. The house call is $110 and they can't get out for a week. I followed your advice about drying out the bottom, and it works fine now. Thanks. P.S. It would be nice if the manufacturer would offer this solution in the owners manual.

Do you have a F1 and wrench in the window? If so you have water inside and beneath the second drawer. Check it out and if so dry it out with towels and hair dryer. Re-assemble and see if that works. Both bottom and top were going on and F1 showed up in the window. Drying out interior bottom fixed problem.

There is a water sensor in the base that detect water (leaking due to lid not closing properly or other reason. You have to remove the bottom drawer and throughly dry base of d/w

Tips for a great answer:
When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
