Tip & How-To about Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers
F1 is a water leak error, it means water has filled the base of the unit and shorted across the filter board flood sensor (this how it is intended to function), now can be a number of different things, we will start with easy stuff, 1. to much detergent can bubble over the overflow hole in the draw and run into the base take note if there is excessive suds in the draw you should have only a thin layer on the surface of the water. 2. the lid that comes down when you close the draw to seal off the draw is being held up by something that is too high (you shouldn't put anything in that is taller than the handle of the cutlery basket) either that or the seal itself or the motors that pull the lid down are faulty, 3. you may have a leak through the heater plate seal (easy to check open the draw and look underneath it, on the bottom of the draw there will be a plastic cover protecting the coils and heater plate simply look at it to see if any water is pooled in it or if there is any dried soap or water. 4. if not any of these you will be looking for a leaking pipe or water hose. 5. and on the rare occasion your filter board itself may be corroded from water contact making it think it is permanently being touched by water
