I just had the same issue as a result of "mother-in-law" using regular liquid dish detergent in both drawers. After numberous attempts of cleaning out each drawer it still was beeping and attempting to drain both drawers even when the water was drained it continue to run and beep.
My presumption of what occurred is the wrong soup caused so much suds that it triggered the flood sensor. I removed both drawers and discovered water in the base area and moisture throughout. After disconnecting the power to the unit I removed the white plastic cover and exposed the small circuit board. I disconnected the power leads and the screw holding the board in place and lifted it up a bit. I then used a hair dryer for about 15 minutes until the entire area was dry and put it back together and has worked just fine. You will see a service diagram taped to the back pannel when you remove the bottom drawer. It has additional information on various error codes and the instructions on how to trouble shoot problems. I would also remind you to run water in the units if the cause was due to the wrong type of soap as the residue will continue to recreate the same problem.

I hope this helps.

F1 code


F1 is a flood sensor fault code. The problem sometimes comes from loading the machine above the top of the drawer. When the inside lid comes down before the dishwasher starts, it cannot seal completely and water can spray into the outer cavity. The water accumulates in the inner bottom where there is a sensor. The sensor protects the electronic components from getting wet by warning you of the water which you cannot see. The solution is to remove the bottom drawer and wipe out, then dry the compartment with a fan or a small space heater. Once dry, the machine will function as usual.

3 problems: 1. lower drawer is hard to close; seems to be sticking on something. 2. lower drawer retains water (2 inches) after completing a cycle. 3. F1 fault code on both drawers with alert...


ok where to start, first thing the bottom draw is hard to close because they use 2 little motors on either side to pull a lid with a seal on it down on top of each draw when u start it to keep the water in, if its hard to close the motors are damaged and arnt lifting the lid back up when the cycle finishes making it hard to open and shut, now the F1 fault means the filter circuit board in the base of the machine has been activated basically a flood sensor (and controls minor components ie lid actuators), the unit should beep and flash and go spaztic and you should hear the drain pump come on continuously til u turn it off at the wall thats its way of trying to stop a leak by removing any water it can but will not actually remove the water from the base where the switch is, you will probably find it will work now as the water will have dried and stopped triggering the switch but wont stay like that for long, that machine has major issues its leaking bad from somewhere and id say it leaked onto the lid motors and fried em, the parts you will most probably have to replace is the filter board in the base, both bottom draw lid actuators (small motors), probably the bottom draw lid if you damaged the seal pulling the draw in and out and whatever is leaking and if any other componets where damaged by water, so if its outta warranty id go buy a new 1 with 5 year extended warranty

Dishwasher showing wrench symbol after using dishwashing liquid


I am assuming this F1 error is coming in only one drawer and that you are able to run the second drawer as normal.

In the case of your dishwasher the F1 error occured because the foam would have overflowed over the drawer top into the base of the unit. This would have triggered a flood switch which is there to protect water damage to the dishwasher. You can either wait a few more days until the base of the dishwasher drawer unit dries up or you can dry it yourself.

To dry the base, extend the drawer as far out as possible (turn mains power off first). The use a few towels and push them on to the base. Pull the towels out and dry the base especially the centre of it with a hair dryer.

The F1 should disappear once you put power back on .

Hope this helps. You have a very helful child who sets the dishwasher up. I have to keep pushing my children to even empty it.

F1 fault


Hi . F1 means your machine has triggered the flood alarm. either you have a leak on one of your drawers or water or soap suds has escaped throe the overflow. now the 1st thing to do is turn your machine off at the wall. then leave it for a couple of days to let it dry out. then turn it on and try the lower drawer throe a cycle,if it doesn't go to F1 then try the top drawer. if it doesn't go to F1 then it might be fixed.if it does go to F1 on any drawer then please reply and tell me which drawer it is and i can help you further.

Default code F1


if you physically forced door open then started f1, its possible that there is no issue and you can reset it. F1 is a code for water leak... if you can remove the lower drawer from the cabinet, youll find water in the lower tray, youll need to dry up this water in order to have the f1 code stop

Dishwasher problem


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.

F1 error on the 1 draw dishwasher


I've never found personal ranting to work myself. However F1 is meant to be a flood warning, there's a sensor in the bottom of the drawer unit that stops the dishwasher if water accumulates in the casing, not the drawers!

So the error could be caused by a leaky hose, a broken or fouled lid or a blocked drain hose stopping the drawer from pumping out, at least these are the problems I've heard of or had.

TURN THE POWER OFF BEFORE TRYING THE FOLLOWING.

To see if you have water in the unit you need to remove the lower drawer, to do this open the lower drawer and you'll find the drawer release clips on each side of the drawer in the corner to the front and at the bottom. When doing this always support the front of the drawer in one hand while releasing the clips with the other. To release the clip push it in and slide it back 3-4cm while gently lifting the front of the drawer (don't try to lift it out, you only want to make the clip slide back easier!). Repeat this with each clip.

6670bb4.jpg
The drawer is on telescopic side rails, so while supporting the front you need to slide each side back, the clips you released are at the end of each rail and you can slide these easily by feeling just under the edge of the drawer. When they're both slid to the back you should find that the drawer will slide further forward and you can lift it out but don't try and pull it right out because all the hoses and wires are connected, just have a towel or something that you can put on the floor to protect the drawer and leave it there.

78ff033.jpg
You should now be able to see into the base of the unit and see if there's water there. The sensor is attached to the bottom panel in the casing, if there's water puddled here you may have a hose or lid leak, you'll need to dry the casing out (thorougly, probably with a hair dryer before you can clear the F1 error).

751d9aa.jpg
On older models the lid motors on either side of the unit (they were white) did have a reputation for breaking, if you see water splashed around the sides it might be one of these that's gone, check for tell-tale signs for leaky hoses too (that would be water where it's not meant to be).

To replace motors and hoses is up to you.

F1 code on Fisher and Paykel dishdrawer


Just had the same problem, removed the excess water from the drawers, turned off the power, removed the bottom drawer by pushing in the lugs at the bottom of the drawer where it butts up to the drawer front and pulling out the drawer. Then had to mop up with 4 t-towels and half a roll of kitchen roll the water in the bottom of the machine housing. The water gets into the electronics at the rear of the housing and obviously warns you of this by the F1 code?. I removed the white cover over the electronics with a screwdriver by pushing it into a slot then sliding the cover across to the right, it is indicated on the cover how to remove it. I also then removed the screw on top of the PCB (printed circuit board) and lifted up the grey plastic base and wiped under that and the under side of the PCB. The PCB unclips on the left hand end of it and lifts out, try not to pull the cables out though. I then used a hair dryer as suggested by someone else on here to dry out any excess that you could not wipe dry, my daughters Hello Kitty hair dryer didn't last long though, she's not impressed! So try not to stick the dryer right in the housing to avoid overheating it. About 5 minutes did the trick for me, then re-assembled everything, turned it on and hey presto! It worked!!!! Its not that hard, good luck!!!
