F04 indicates the drain pump (the one that pumps the water to the bottle) is running when it shouldn't be.
This is normally a fault with the main control board.
Unplug the appliance.
Take the top and side panels off.
Check the connections to the main board.
Unplug them, plug them back on.
Try the machine again.
If still the same, you'll need to have the board changed and then programmed to the appliance (this requires special programming equipment).
sorry, not good news or a simple fix.
Check it out, see what you find and get back to me.
Hope this helps
