F1 code on Fisher and Paykel dishdrawer
Just had the same problem, removed the excess water from the drawers, turned off the power, removed the bottom drawer by pushing in the lugs at the bottom of the drawer where it butts up to the drawer front and pulling out the drawer. Then had to mop up with 4 t-towels and half a roll of kitchen roll the water in the bottom of the machine housing. The water gets into the electronics at the rear of the housing and obviously warns you of this by the F1 code?. I removed the white cover over the electronics with a screwdriver by pushing it into a slot then sliding the cover across to the right, it is indicated on the cover how to remove it. I also then removed the screw on top of the PCB (printed circuit board) and lifted up the grey plastic base and wiped under that and the under side of the PCB. The PCB unclips on the left hand end of it and lifts out, try not to pull the cables out though. I then used a hair dryer as suggested by someone else on here to dry out any excess that you could not wipe dry, my daughters Hello Kitty hair dryer didn't last long though, she's not impressed! So try not to stick the dryer right in the housing to avoid overheating it. About 5 minutes did the trick for me, then re-assembled everything, turned it on and hey presto! It worked!!!! Its not that hard, good luck!!!

Bosch dishwasher has e24 error code and does not
An error 24 code on your Bosch dishwasher means that you have a clog or that your pump is bad. Check and clean out your airgap. If that doesn’t work and your machine is still under warranty, call Bosch. Bosch won’t tell you what the error code means, only that you need a service call, and they will then give you some phone numbers for Bosch authorized appliance repair places, one of which was Mr. Appliance. The appliance repair place will want to put in a new part whether you need it or not so that they can get paid by Bosch. I found this out the hard way. Hey Bosch, be smart and tell your customers what the error codes mean so that they are informed and you don’t look like you are trying to rip them off. Leave that to Mr. Appliance. You can always remind the customer that working on the actual dishwasher voids the warranty. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out how to clean out the airgap, which isn’t a part of the dishwasher, but rather part of your plumbing connected to the dishwasher. I suspected this to begin with, but because you told me I needed a service call, I had to assume it was beyond basic owner maintenance. Great way for you to flush money down the toilet and look bad doing so.

Dishwasher not draining
I had water at the bottom of my 4 year old plus dishwasher and of course I thought the worst. Did the pump go out, bad impeller, or what else could it be! I started with the easy stuff first and disconnected the drain lines. The drain line runs from the dishwasher to an air gap mounted to my sink, which keeps the drain line from getting an airlock. From the air gap device another larger line runs to the garbage disposal. I used an 8MM wrench to loosen the clamps enough to pull the drain lines off and drained them into a bucket. There really wasn't any resistance to water flow and no real chunks, I was disappointed.
I then took the actual air gap out of the sink by removing a large plastic nut and pulling the devise out from underneath the sink. When I inspected the air gap I saw a wad of hairy, feathery plastic stuff blocking the flow of water. I took the chunk out, reassembled everything and it works like new again.
It is a very easy fix and now even the area under the sink is clean to boot.

My Bosch dishwasher has an
We read on google that a lady had this problem and we copied her instructions to see if it worked and am so pleased to say it did.
OUR PROBLEM WAS WE HAD E15 AND NO WATER IN THE BOTTOM OF OUR DISHWASHER, BUT THE PUMP STILL KEPT GOING ON AND OFF. EVEN WHEN THE ON/OFF BUTTON ON THE DISHWASHER WAS OFF.WE PULLED THE DISHWASHER OUT AND TILTED IT BACKWARDS (WHILST STILL ON), AND AFTER A MINUTE THE SETTING RETURNED TO NORMAL.So do try this before you call an engineer.
