Fisher Paykel F1 error / double dishwasher drawer

Our dish washer is beeping and flashing F1. It appears the lid was not closed completely based on a plate obstructing it's proper closure. There was some water under the lower unit.

    F1 is the flood sensor... water is leaking from one of your units. Check and see if the top is seal during running.

    Ran the bottom unit and the top filled with water. Than, the F1 alarm started to flash on both units. Tried to drain but the beeping error will not go away. Any ideas on how to fix?

Flood switch 920 model


Not sure what the actual model number is but usually the F1 error with Fisher and Paykel dishwasher means water has entered the flood switch located at the base. This could be due to leaky hoses or water leaking through the door or lid seal. Wait for a day or two until the water evaporates and try again. Otherwise you will have to dry out the flood switch and then try again. Location of flood switch will depend on your model. For double drawer dishwasher you will have to take the bottom drawer out from the housing and the switch is on the floor of housing. But make sure you take the mains power chord out before touching the insides of dishwasher. Will also need to find the cause of the leak. Other reason for F1 could be loss of power to top dishdrawer if you have double drawer. But in that case the top drawer will have no lights on. The power board is located on the base of housing under bottom drawer. Once again do not touch inside of dishwasher without shutting off mains power.

F1 and beeping


F1 means the drawer lid is not closing properly - (lid seal leaking) which caused water to splash out when you started the wash cycle. The flood circuit on base of dishwasher housing (under the bottom drawer) has tripped. You will have to find the source of leakage and also dry the base of dishwasher housing. Make sure the dishwasher is unplugged form mains socket when you work in it.

F1 error on Fisher and Paykel Dish Drawer


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.

Fisher Pakel dish drawer sends F1 alarm flashing. It usually happens when there is a drop or change in water pressure. Have had 3 repairs on this disappointing product. Only repair person for Fisher...


F1 is a flood fault ir happens when the machine detects water on the base of the unit, to clear this fault you can remove the bottom draw and use a towel to clean up the water this should clear the fault, But usually there is only water on the base if the lid is not closing properly, this can happen due to you putting long utensils in and the lid cannot pull down or you have faulty lid actuators witch is probably the case and they wont pull the lid down correctly, So if the lid wont come down properly water splashes over the top and floods the base. :)

Showing f1


The f1 fault is cased by a leak on the dishwasher.
It is activated when water gets to a dangerous level in the base of the appliance near to the PCB.

The main reason this happens is putting cups on the drop down shelves and when the lid comes down to seal the drawer it can't and leaks. If you look at the drawer when open there is a lip around it, if anything is proud of this lip the lid will not shut properly.

To rectify this problem you will have to disconnect the power and remove the bottom drawer and the dry up all the water in the base. If you leave the appliance long enough it will dry out by itself.

Once you have done this and the problem still comes back you will need and engineer as there is a problem with the lid motors or the seal’s.

Good luck hope this helps..

Hi Both drawers show error F1 flashing beeping with rinse light on and both pumps run after power is applied to machine


F1 error indicates flood switch in base has activated, meaning machine has leaked. This causes machine to drain continously, and can only be stopped by switching off power. Not easy to fix if you don't have experience- bottom drawer has to be removed to access flood switch, then machine needs to be test run and checked for leaks. Best to call the professionals!!

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 by pulling the lock pins on each lower side corner. Slide down and remove front cover. Release the drawer slide clips and remove drawer then dry the catch basin.
There are three possible scenarios for this error code;
1. Defective lid motor(s)...Each drawer has two lid motors, attached to the cabinet on either side of the drawer, 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.
3. (only seen this once) the drain hose developed a crack causing water to leak only when draining.

Dish drawer leaks


The f1 is a flood error. There is a sensor in the bottom reading water. You have to dry it out before you can do anything or the drain pump will just keep running. Check the lid of the drawer you where using to see if anything may have been holding it up or if the seal is torn. If that looks ok you will have to check the lid actuators to see if one is not working. I would replace both right and left if one is out.
