Question about Fisher Dishwashers

My dishwasher keeps flashing F1 error message

I can't get a wash out of my Fisher & Paykel Nautilus DW920 dishwasher. It works for 5 minutes and then beeps constantly and flashes F1 error code. I'm sick of mopping my kitchen floor and I'm so disappointed in the 'fixes' I've googled. Is there a permanent fix?

The f1 code is caused moisture in the electronics part most likely in the door.see if there is any way that you can see where moisture might get in and plug that spot up. In the case of the f1 code when not using the dishwasher leave the door propped open to help dry out the electronics.

How do i reset a fisher and paykel dishwasher model dw920. Code F1 appeard found out i had a blocked drain, fixed it but still beeps and flashes F1. Have also disconnected power from mains but still the...


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa.
F1 error means that the flood switch has been activated. You’ll need to reset it by powering off the breaker or by unplugging the unit from the power socket and mains for more than five minutes. Please check that there is no blockage in the drain hose and it is not raised higher otherwise the water will run back to the dishwasher. Also perform the following procedure---
    • Unplug power and remove bottom dish drawer
    • Use a Sponge and dry all the excess water underneath
    • Remove circuit board cover
    • Dry all around and underneath as much as possible
    • Apply hairdryer for 10-15min

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

F1 fault


F1 code would mean the flood switch is activated.

In Nautilus people have found this to be caused by a faulty door seal.
Water seeps under the diswasher base panel and finally the flood switch (a protection) activates.

The solution is to replace door seal after drying out under the base panel.

F1 Error on Fisher & Paykel Nautilus


It leaked before leading to this.
1- Unplug the power.
2- Dry out the leak.
3- Before taking off the lid seal, check if Lid actuator working by going to diagnostic mode. 4- Select LD.
5-Pull the drawer half way out so you can see the lid going down or not when you turn on by pressing lock button.
6- Press the lock button again to release the Lid.
7- Most the time it is a Lid actuator problem and your seal look good, then you replace the Lid actuator only.
8- If it is a problem with the Lid actuator and your seal look bad then replace all .

I think if you push the heated wash and heated dry buttom several times until all the buttoms light up this may fix your problem.
You may have different kind of light flashing indicator, but the same solution.
Possibly check the sequence switch
