The controllers get very brittle & can break away from their housing, the reason it's rapidly beaping is because it thinks the door is open. PLEASE TURN IT OFF FIRST AT THE POWER POINT. Take the front draw panel off by pulling the plugs situated on the front behind the draws, the controller is at the top right hand side if it is loose then thats the problem, double sided tape will work but lots of it or try a wedge type arrangement. I know this is an old post but people refer to these for solutions much later.

If this is a double drawer dishwasher and bottom drawing is functional but top drawer won't open means the controller on top drawer is faulty or power circuit is locked. If turning the mains power off and back on makes no difference then controller could be the problem. One way to test is to take the controller from bottom drawer and replace that in the top drawer. This requires a lot of patience and experience with electronic stuff. If you are not brave enough to test then call the technician. The controller is about $200 to buy. Make sure the mains power socket is taken out before working on the dishwasher internals.
Sorry did not see your problem report earlier. If you have checked the sensor under the bottom drawer and it is dry, then F1 is caused by top drawer power filter fault. This means the bottom drawer controller is giving the F1 error but the top drawer controller has no power. Can you confirm this.
If you find the dish wash makes the noise like the draw has been open and its mainly at night you most likely have cockaroaches. The dishdraws have infared sensors to tell it that the draw is open which works like a beam of light. When the beam of light is broken the draw thinks its open. When a cockie runs across the beam it blocks the light and the draw thinks its open. Get a good qulity surface spray and spray right around the door as they enjoy living near the warm CPU board. Most people don't realise they have cockies there untill i pull the draw cover off and show them.
The error was a flood fault, water was not draining from either of the drawere, I removed the bottom drawer, dried drip pan and used hairdryer to dry fault sensor, the dishwasher then reset itself and works fine.
I'm not really sure. With the double drawer configuration, I know the top drawer is larger than the bottom drawer. If I had to take a guess, I would say the single drawer might fit in the top of the double drawer.
The bottom drawer just beeps and wont work please help.
