Re: dd603ss c?tting power
"If your not a technician etc this could be a dangerous and tricky job" Ok you need to replace the RFI module (lower PCB/flood sensor) there could also be a fault with one motor controller module you'd need to unplug one drawer at a time then turn on to see which ones faulty. Then you'd also need to stop the leak? repalce the lid actuators, Link supports and the lid if seal is damaged. cheers

Not sure if you have managed to fix the F1 problem with your dishdrawer. This is a common problem and occurs mainly due to water leaking into the base of the dishdrawer under the bottom drawer.
But if it is occuring only in one drawer then the power filter at the base of dishdrawer is faulty and needs replacement.
Otherwise make sure the mains power to dishdrawer is turned off. Pull out the bottom drawer and stack in some towels behind it if you can to remove the moisture sitting on the base. The flood switch is located there. Then take a hair dryer and run it down behind the drawer to dry things. Push drawer back and turn power back on. Now if you cannot reach the back of the drawer then you will have to pull the drawer out from its rail. Refer the installation manual for this. See link page 7.
Page 26 shows blinking Heavy light means there is leakage in the dishwasher. Most likely there is water in the base under the drain sump which could cause the flood switch to trip. Turn mains power to dishwasher off. Pull it out from under kitchen bench without breaking the hoses. Put some towels on the floor and turn dishwasher back and forth on incline to get water out. Wait a little and turn on. If no difference then you need to dry the base and find the source of the leak. More likely the door seal.
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.
F1 can mean two things - depending on which drawer it is coming in.
It is a sign that the water is leaking from the drawers into the base of the housing and tripping the flood switch.
To fix this you will have to take the drawers out and dry out the flood switch at the base of the housing. Use towels and hair dryer. Most like the dishwasher detergent is foaming or the door seal is leaking or the outlet drain is cracked. Make sure the mains power is turned off when you are working on the dishwasher.
The other reason is if the thermal cutout is blown in the lower drawer that can cause the F1 to appear in top drawer. But if both drawers are flashing F1 then this is unlikely.
There is a water leak in the bottom housing and a leak sensor detects to give a F1. Pull out the tube and put your hand in the front from the left ( only on this side has enough room to access) with the small towel to dry out the water on the bottom housing. After dry out, unplug the power for at least 24 hours so the sensor can be dried out and reset. However, make sure to fix the leak from the top seal, otherwise, it keep happening.
Disconnet Dishwasher, Remove lower dishdraw, soak up excess water with a towel, use a hairdryer to dry water especially under grey plastic cover. Then check seal on either dishdraw and make sure they are not kinked or leaking as this has most likely caused the problem. Power up problem should be resolved. Don't leave dishdraw unattended till you validate problem definately fixed.
F1 fault means the flood switch on the base of the dishwashers has been activated.
nine times out of ten its the lid motors.
You can remove the two kick plates on the bottom of the dishwasher.
Dry out the water in the base with a sponge.
only one draw will be leaking water??
This allows you to use the second draw until a serviceman shows up.
Dry the base out A.S.A.P, because you have a electronic board that sits on the base. cheers
