ok, the machine flooded and the water has leaked into the bottom of the machine, 1st turn off the machine at the power point. 2nd- open the top drawer and remove the suds from it. 3rd. open the bottom drawer and look under it to the bottom of the cabinet . that is where the water will be. use a torch if you have to. now you need to dry the water up. you can do this with a hair dryer or a fan heater. the reason the machine is flashing F1 is because the water has triggered the flood switch and you need to dry up that water. please reply 4 more help.once dryed F1 will disappear. please make sure all the suds are removed from the top drawer. good luck
By the information you've supplied, I'd guess you burnt out the coil in the water/fill valve by running it without a water supply to the valve. Are there any other unusual symptom's or error codes ? i.e. drain pump running none stop ? Can you put water into the tub manually and run a rinse cycle without issue ?
In any event the valve is pretty inexpensive, usually about $30 or so. The part # 425458 works on all bosch, thermador, gaggenau, and siemens dishwasher built since the early to mid 90's up to present day.
Hope this was helpful to you. Thanks for visiting "fixya" today.
Try unplugging the machine for 30 minutes then plugging it back in. I am worried that the pump is bad due to the fact that it needs water to add resistance to work properly and without water the pump spins so free the it burns itself out. But first try unplugging the dishwasher first
