    I have a hotpoint dishwasher with an f01 fault , I have checked all hose thèy are fine no leaks replaced sump unit as I thought the gasket might be gone. Tested it with a 30 min cycle and it was fine , put it on a 2hour cycle wash and an 1hour in and the fault has come back . , I noticed the water coming through the black mat/cover on the base of dish washer in the void area . Any ideas helpful. Thanks
