My Kenmore Elite dishwasher is showing code F2E2..What does that mean?

I can't turn on the dishwasher and it leaked water.

F2E2 code led me to exactly what Joe Drive said. The hose had come off just above the white box. Sears had told me I needed a recirculation motor for $160. I replaced all those cheap clamps with radiator clamps( $4.00), dried the white box by blowing it off with my air compressor and using a hair dryer on it, put it all back together, dried up the mess created by the clamp coming off, reset the circuit breaker I had tripped and it worked great. I can only guess what a Sears tech would have done or said but I imagine it would have cost me a lot of money and I would never have know about the clamp and still had those other cheap clamps on my machine.

Joe - I have the exact same issue with the same unit. Can you please provide some detail on where the hose and white box are? Is it in the front, or do I need to pull the whole thing out? And then how do I enter the 123 code? (There are no numbers on my control panel.) Thanks!!

I would also like to know the answers to Jason's questions. Anyone know?

The first example you give, connection in the console. Is this inside the door where I find the 6 pin connector??? I dont have any water leaking, so I dont believe it is a clamp issue.

All this is very helpful. Thank you all. My Kenmore elite dishwasher is also showing the F2E2 error code. I pulled the circuit breaker and let it sit for two months to dry out while I was away. Now I'm trying to fix it. When I reconnected the electricity, the code is still displayed - it did not "reboot." I cannot pull the machine out. I removed two screws on the sides that were hidden by plastic caps, but I can't find any other fasteners and there is resistance to lifting it out. Also, how do I reset the machine?
