Fisher and paykel DD-603 dish drawer

My dishwasher has flooded from a blocked drain filter. The flood switch has tripped and is showing "F1 with spanner" on the display. The pump is constantly running on both drawers. I am hoping someone can tell me how to reset it. Regards Paul

Hi there, If you have had an F1 you need to dry out the product in order to reset the flood switch. This is a simple process as follows: 1. Ensure product is disconnect from wall so that it has no power. 2. Open the bottom drawer and put your hand in through the gap where the bottom of the bottom drawer comes out and feel the base of the cabinet that houses the drawers for water. 3. If there is water present dry it out as much as you can with paper towels or old rags. This machine is designed to drain all water to the front of the base of the cabinet away from the flood switch that sits at the back left corner of the cabinet base that the drawers are fitted into. 4. When you have base of the cabinet dry you need to ensure that the switch has not moisture on it in order for it to reset and allow you to start using the product. This can be done 2 ways: 1. leave bottom drawer open for 24-48 hours to allow natural air circulation to dry out the connection. or 2. position a hair dryer to blow air into the back left corner of the base of the cabinet and dry it out quicker. This still make take up to 6 hours as the flood switch had a protective cover over it to try to prevent F1's for small spills. 5. When the product had been dried out, important that you make sure it has, when you switch on the machine the F1 should be gone and ready to use. Please run each drawer seperately on a rinse cycle to confirm to yourself that it flooding was possibly caused by something blocking the sprayarm, or something stacked too high or something got stuck in the pump temporarily stopping it from draining effectively or the product suddsing too much from spilt rinse aide in one of the drawers. If each drawer runs successfully you should be in the all clear to start using it again. Please note though: if something blocks the spray arm that is directly linked to the pump your drawer will flood as a result. If you have something stuck in the pump peventing it from draining effectively ie a toothpick or piece of broken crockery this will cause your product to flood, but you will hear an louder than normal sound when the pump is running. And finally if you spill rinse aide in your drawer when filling it clean all spilt rinse aide to prevent unit from over sudsing when running. Regards KAR-Ltd

I am a 61 year old woman who had just tried to call a service repairman to come out and look at my F1 and wrench icon. Luckily no one answered the phone. I read this page and after work went home to tackle the job myself. 1. Turned off circuit breaker (which had been off for a couple of days as this happened on a weekend. 2. Followed instructions on sliding out bottom drawer. Took Flash light to inspect and found water on bottom. 3. Got towels and got as much water as I could out. 4. Took hair dryer and put on low and turned on for about and hour. Changing direction of air flow and insuring it wasn't getting to warm. I lifted some cables and made sure the water was gone in all the crannies. 5. Put drawer back in. 6. Flipped circuit breaker back on. 7. Shabam it did the trick F 1 disappearedand didn't cost me a dime only time. If I can do it so can you. Just follow the instructions. Saved me a minimum $150 service call. Submitted by: Ms. FX F1

I have just managed to reset this switch. My problem included water in the bottom of the unit - haven't found the source yet - which when cleaned out and dried led to reset. I tried switching off etc but now I would assume that the polystyrene float may still be raised in your case.

HAD SAME PROBLEM TODAY WTH MY FISHER & PAKEL DD603SS. THE DRAIN UNDER THE FILTER WAS BLOCKED WHICH ALSO CAUSED DAMAGE TO THE IMPELLER. THIS STOPPED THE MACHINE FROM DRAINING PROPERLY CAUSING THE FI(SPANNER) FAULT. I UNPLUGGED THE MACHINE TO STOP THE FAULT SHOWING. THEN PLUGGED IT BACK IN AGAIN,IMMEDIATELY I SET A PROGRAM TO RUN.THIS HAS CLEARED THE FAULT. BEFORE DOING THIS MAKE SURE YOU HAVE CLEANED ALL DEBRI FROM UNDER THE FILTER.

The F1 error coming on top drawer when operating bottom drawer is due to the thermal fuse blowing up on the bottom drawer and shutting controller power.

The thermal fuse could have blown either as a normal component failure or heater over heated due to thermostat failure. In any case this can be repaired by replacing the whole heater assembly as all the parts are integrated.

This is at the underside of the drawer and will need a technician to replace unless you are very familiar with repairing electronic dishwashers. The part look like this.

The way you have described the onset of the F1 error is not due to flood switch. You can confirm that the lights on the bottom drawer are out even though the top drawer is showing F1 and beeping.

If problem was flood switch then both drawers would show F1.

Flood switch activated, intermittent beeping, motor will not turn off


Please confirm if it is a single or a double drawer.

How do you know the flood switch is activated? Do you have a display on your dishwasher and what is it showing? If no display then which lights if any on the panel are on?

Motor will not run if flood switch is activated in the fisher paykel drawer dishwwasher.

ok , F1 means your flood switch has activated, which is underneath the drawer. now they show the F1 fault because of 2 reasons.1st there is still water underneath drawer causing switch to activate. 2nd your activator board which has the flood switch attached is faulty reading your posting it has been about 15 days since the fault happened. the water should have dryed around switch by now. if there is power to the unit and it is still coming up with F1 fault then possibly you have damaged the activator board. please reply and tell me if you have power on or off at the present time. to fix the problem it is alittle bit involved but i can guide you thru it when you reply .good luck

Th dish washer that we have is the 2draw dd-603m


A lot depends on how it happened. Is this a new installation or everything was working well until now? F1 error implies the float switch in the drawers is activated as the inlet water soneloid could not turn off. This prevents the units from being flooded.

Are you using the correct pressure setting for the water supply. Check the user manual for details. IF you don't have one, download from the fisher & paykel website.

E-mail for Fisher Paykel DD603 manual


Josh, you will need to have a Tech out to look at it... F/P will not sell you parts to repair it. The F1 indicates that the flood switch has been tripped. There are many possible causes for this but probably the upper drawer link support has broken and is getting stuck between the lid and the drawer in which case you will need a new lid and link support.

Fisher and paykel dd-603ss


F1 is a flood code meaning excessive amounts of water have collected on the bottom catch basin. If a flood condition is detected, both draws will activate the drain motors and flash F1. Remove the bottom drawer and dry the catch basin.
There are three possible scenarios; 1. Defective lid motor(s)...Each drawer has two lid motors that pull the lid tight to the drawer when the cycle is started. (this was very common on early models) 2. Something too tall was placed in the drawer preventing the lid from closing completely. OR 3. (only seen this once) the drain hose developed a crack causing water to leak only when draining. Hope this helps....
