Fisher Paykel dishwashers encounter the F2 error code often.  This error code is saying that the wash rotor has failed and isn’t moving anymore.  Fisher Paykel dishwashers use a rotor that is powered by a stator motor.  Several things can happen that cause the F2 error code to appear on the dishwasher LCD screen such as a locked rotor, a jammed rotor, or a chipped rotor.  Fisher Paykel makes it easy to remove and clean or replace the rotor.  If you don’t know how to remove the rotor the link below is a video that explains how.

Start by removing the screws that go around the inner door liner and control panel. Bosch dishwasher have two screws that hold the panel in place that enter from the side. With the front panel removed the soap cup dispenser will be visible. Bosch uses metal flanges to hold the dispenser in place.  First the wires will need to be unplugged. Remove the wires that connect to the motor or solenoid and also the rinse agent chip if equipped.  Use a small flat head screw driver to lift the metal flange up enough to slide the dispenser through the front panel.

Now the the soap cup is out you can install the new one. If you still have questions, you can use the forum link below to speak with a Bosch trained appliance technician.

With the front removed, the control board will be located in the top right corner of the cabinet. The board has two prongs on either side that pivot the control in and out of position. The board is held into position with a tab on the  side. A flat head screw driver works well to depress the tab releasing the control board.  The wires that plug into the side of the control board are also held down with a clip. Use a small flat head to release the wire harness.
