Fisher-paykel dd203 started filling with water with drawer open
The bottom drawer was beeping so i opened it and it started filling with water and wouldn't stop. i turned off the breaker to the machine. before that i had put a long handled spoon in the silverware basket and closed it. i noticed that it sounded like the spoon did not clear so i opened the drawer and removed the spoon. then i started beeping and i opened the drawer and the water started pouring into the drawer. what can i do?

What you can do is take a baster and empty out the water; then check and see if anything is at the bottom of the machine inside meaning under the thing that twirles and anything that is long put on top rack.Because you can something that is stuck or gunk that is blocking the way

It is the drain water from bottom drawer that is finding its way to the top drawer. This could be due to incorrect drain hose height. Check in installation manual. Alternatively you will have to buy an air gap kit and connect the two drain hoses separately to the kitchen sink.
As the drawers share a common outlet to the kitchen sink drain, it is the drain water from bottom drawer going to top drawer. Can happen if the drain hoses are not following the correct specifications for installation. An air gap kit is available to solve the problems.
The flood switch has turned on. There is a leak into the base of the housing. Turn mains power off. Open bottom drawer and dry the base using towels etc. Need to find the source of leak. Lid seal or hoses.
Sorry did not see your problem report earlier. If you have checked the sensor under the bottom drawer and it is dry, then F1 is caused by top drawer power filter fault. This means the bottom drawer controller is giving the F1 error but the top drawer controller has no power. Can you confirm this.
There could be several reasons for the beeping. The dishwasher checks for sensor to make sure it is in good health before it starts. Most likely the drawer close sensor is detecting fault. This is to ensure the drawer is closed fully to avoid water leaks when dishwasher is on. Sometimes sensor itself has failed and has nothing to do with position of drawer. Open top cover carefully to make sure the drawer is travelling ok on the rails. TAKE MAINS POWER CABLE OUT BEFORE WORKING ON DISHWASHER.
The drawer door seal is locked in. This could be either because the controller has lost power or the seal actuator motor is faulty.
You will have to force open the drawer before you can do anything. (Turn off the mains power when you work on the dishwasher)
Let me know if you can handle electric/ mechanical repairs so that I can guide you further. Otherwise you should call a technician. If you are getting beeps then most likely the door seal system is the problem.
Are you able to use the top drawer?
When it stops and beeps can you tell me all lights that are on when you open the drawer cheers. also check to see if the water in the tub is hot if not you have a heating issue. either a faulty element or Mtr Controller module. try swapping the Mtr Controller module (computer board) from the top drawer to the bottom drawer and see if that moves the fault. cheers
1. Unplug machine. 2. Slide drawer open, remove two pegs that secure front panel to drawer (one on each side of drawer) 3. Slide front panel down and out, remove green ground wire. 4. Depress tabs that hold bottom plastic cover on bottom of drawer and remove entire cover, being careful not to break the tabs. 5. Disconnect tan water fill hose from rinse dispenser. 6. Disconnect two wire harnessess at control board. 7. DIsconnect drain hose from pump base. (might want to put a pan underneath to catch water) 8. Depress tabs on hose/harness coupler at bottom rear of drawer and dis-engage the coupler. 9. Lift drawer off slides.
