F1 fault means the flood switch on the base of the dishwashers has been activated.
nine times out of ten its the lid motors.
You can remove the two kick plates on the bottom of the dishwasher.
Dry out the water in the base with a sponge.
only one draw will be leaking water??
This allows you to use the second draw until a serviceman shows up.
Dry the base out A.S.A.P, because you have a electronic board that sits on the base. cheers
I have a dd603ss the bottom drawer is leaking at the top of drawer the seal looks good. the drawer slides are rusted and corroded I think that the lid is not closing all the way and has been leaking for some time on the left side, the side that has water on it after washing. the F1 code alerted me to the situation.

Not sure if the flood sensor will trip if the water is splashed into the mains plug. F1 can also occur if the power to the top drawer has failed. Flood sensor trips when water collects at the base of the dishwasher housing under the bottom drawer. I think the problem you mention has caused the power to the top drawer to fail due to a spike when the splash on the power plug occured. This is very easy to see. Check if the display on top drawer is blank.
then u havnt fixed it, if you fixed the flooding it should automatically stop showing the error if you have dryed the water from the base of the unit under the draw when u take it out and it still saying F1 then your mains filter board has been cooked as they use a small circuit board as the flood sensor with a little tab that sticks out to sense any water touching it if the leak was pretty major the machine may hav not been able to stop it before the board went under water, they have actually made upgraded filter boards with a gel coating over it to prevent such things from happeing
F1 means that the flood sensor has been tripped. Remove the bottom draw and dry the water out. Mop the majority out and use a hair dryer to get it all nice and dry. This should clear the f1. There may be underlying issues of why the unit has leaked but see how you get on.
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
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.
NO POWER TO LOWER DRAWER, CHECK POWER AT BOARD IN LOWER BACK CORNER BEHIND DRAWER,CHECK FOR BROKEN WIRE TO LOWER DRAWER,CAN ALSO BE THERMAL FUSE ON HEATER PLATE,COULD ALSO BE CONTROL BOARD IN LOWER DRAWER.GOOD LUCK there is a drawing taped inside behind the drawer. oops sorry about all caps [email protected]
