Dishwasher is beeping. Also has an F1 with a spanner sign. It has done this previously and I switched it off overnight and it started up with no problem in the morning. This time it just keeps beeping. What do you suggest. thanks

here is link to F&P repair video. This video explains how to repair a F1 error code and replace the rotor
I am assuming the F1 fault is showing on both the drawers.
This is normally due to flood switch at base of dishwasher housing getting set.
This is due to water leakage from the drawers into the base. To clear it you need to turn power off. Take out the bottom drawer and dry the base of housing with towels and hair dryer. The flood switch is mounted on power board at the base.
Put drawer back and turn the power on. The drawer removal is done by taking out 2 plastic plugs one on each side of drawer and taking front cover off. Then pull drawer out and unclamp from rails. Pull out carefully without damaging houses and wiring a the back. Put back in reverse.
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.
I am slightly unsure if your double drawer dishwasher is the prefinished model (self standing with LCD display) or the integrated model with no LCD display.
The spanner symbol on the top drawer is telling you that a fault code is actuated. But I am not sure where this symbol is on your unit if it is built -in (integrated model).
You will have to check which red light (from the left) is coming on.
I assume there are 5 lights on the inside of drawer.
With the bottom drawer - again you will have to check which light from the left comes on sometimes as you mentioned.
If you have a user manual you should be able to tell what Fault code it is - something like F1 or F2 etc. Is it continuously beeping when the red light is on? How do you turn the beeps off?
The scrubbing bush symbol on bottom drawer may not be a problem. It appears the drawer is programmed to a particular option. But I am not sure where this symbol is showing if you do not have an LCD display panel. You can reset the option - possibly auto lock or auto power or dish cleaned (depending on your model) if you follow the user manual.
happy to take you through a possible cause of the problem if you post answers to my questions above.
The F1 error means a flood switch has been activated in the drawer. The spanner means you need to call a technician.
The possible causes are that the solenoid that controls the water inlet does not shut off or the sensor that detects the water level is not working. Also it is possible the water pressure is not optimum for the setting on your unit.
the f1 is the flood sensor....a leak has accured....either a dish to larger or lid motor has failed. will need to remove bottom drawer and soak up water and then let air dry for a day or two....turn off the breaker this will keep it from beeping and running the pumps....after drying unit will run, but need to watch the dishes you put in drawers.
