Publicly available information suggests the following:
Try "admin" and "admin",
"root" and "default" and,
"blank" and "blank" (none)

You will need to log into the console using the username "maintenance"  

There is an option to reset the Admin password only.  The password will be reset to th factory default which is "admin"

Qlemo,
The information/procedure are well established - as both Experts posted.
I suggest a split.
Thank you.

The publicly available suggestions above are simply the defaults. Once someone has configured the unit, those are worthless on the F5 systems.
However, logging in with "maintenance" worked.

Thank you.
