Thanks Michael for the quick response but I'm still a bit confused.
Just to clarify it is a dishwasher, just in case I wasnt clear about it earlier.
The manual seems to point this code 'F8 E1' being a drain hose / filter / syphon hose connection problem.
There seems to be if anything 'not enough water' and certainly no suds in the washer because it stops 60 seconds into the cycle.
We use the same cycle and use a tablet all the time btw.
Do you think the inlet hose could just kink or block spontaneously after 2 yrs?
