Hotpoint aquarius fdf784 dishwasher displays fault code A-1

Customer Question

Hotpoint aquarius fdf784 dishwasher displays fault code A-1 - do I need a service engineer or is there something I can do? We had a flood in the house after torrential rain, the machinne was off at the time when the electricity tripped and when I reset the RCD the machine started flashing A-1.

Hi this error means this Flood protection activated.lay dishwasher on its back for 10 min and let any water run out then retry.could be a leak or blockage if it happens again soon after
Also check pressure switch and Check wiring.
