Tip & How-To about Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers

F2 faults

Yeah F2 is the code for the control board not detecting movement in the motor rotor, with these draw dishwashers you must make sure they get regular use even if you dont need to use it, run it through a fast cycle at least fortnightly to monthly as the motor rotors lock up from the water and other gunge drying on and around it as the motor rotor itself is constantly submerged in water it also doubles as your drain pump with the help of a diverter valve, they are really simple to remove simply take the basket/dishracks out of the draw now all you will see is a round stainless steel dish covered in little holes with a grey ring in the middle if you look close there should be arrows on the grey ring twist the grey ring in the direction indicated and you should be able to lift it up and remove it from the draw now all you have left is your motor rotor in the center, to remove it simply twist it the same as the grey ring thing and it should pull out, then to check if ok simply hold the outside ring (the part you held to remove it) and attempt to spin the rotor (center peice with the little propellers on either end) it should spin freely like a smooth bearing if it doesn't or doesnt move at all and is hard to even force around then you will need a new 1, get back to me if you have any questions

FISHER & PAYKEL dd24 , i CHANGED THE ROTOR MOTOR BECAUSE OF THE F2 CODE AND IT WAS BURNT, BUT THE CODE STILL POPS UP AT START UP ?


Need to clean the pump sump and the drain sump to make sure there is no debris left. Most likely a bone chip or seed inside the channel connecting the two sumps. Use a thin rigid wire to clean.

Dishwasher DD605 f2problem motor has been replaced


Hi.

F2 means "Motor rotation not sensed". If the motor has already been replaced , then either the hall sensor that detects the rotation is not working, the rotor is jammed, the control board is defective, or there is a wiring problem.

• Foreign object has jammed the rotor.
• The rotor has failed.
• Hall sensor connector or wiring fault at hall sensor or controller.
• The hall sensor has failed.
• Motor stator winding or connection open circuit.
• The electronic controller has failed.
• PCB mains filter has failed.

we have DD603. rarely use lower drawer. today we tried and nothing happened F2 appeared. we ahve a lot of calcium in water. could inflow be an issue if rarely used. suggestions?


Hi there Larry, F2 relates to a problem with the motor. I would start by removing the motor unit from the inside of the draw (you will find it under the spray arm) and checking for signs of damage or a blockage please let me know if this helped. Regrads Gary.

F2 showing on panel of F&P single draw dishwasher. When turned on (pushing the start button) it just makes a clattering noise.


F2 means that the motor has not been sensed as rotating. By the chattering sound i would say it is quite likeley that there is something obstructing the rotor. Check the rotor by removing the racking from the draw, removing the filter plate by turning the locking ring in the centre anti clockwise and lifting it out and doing the same for the rotor assembly. Once you'v got it out you should be able to see if something is blocking it. Maybe a bit of bone or glass. It may have snuck back into the channell between where the rotor and the filter sits so poke something through there to dislodge anything that might get sucked back into the rotor when it sucks. So yeah thats what i reckon. Give it a go.

Hope this might help

Lower drawer not working. Comes jup as F2 in red


If this is a dishdraw. F2 Means that the motor has not been sensed as rotating so iether a foreign object has jammed the rotor (most likeley), the rotor has failed, the hall sensor has failed or the electronic controller has failed. Check the rotor by removing the racking from the draw, removing the filter plate by turning the locking ring in the centre anti clockwise and lifting it out and doing the same for the rotor assembly. Once you'v got it out you should be able to see if something is blocking it. Maybe a bit of bone or something. It may have snuck back into the channell between where the rotor and the filter sits so poke something through there to dislodge anything that might get sucked back into the rotor when it sucks. So yeah thats what i reckon. Give it a go.
