Re: Dishwasher fault

I got this with another dishwasher. On that one it meant the water wasn't feeding into it (tap switched off, kink in inlet tube, etc.)

Have an f1 error that comes up , says it is a flood switch doesn t seem to be any water in the area around the dishwasher. Any ideas?

The flood switch is at the base of the dishwasher housing under the bottom drawer.

Do you have the F1 fault displayed in both drawers? If so, or if you have single drawer, then turn power off and take the bottom drawer out. Dry the base with towels and use hair dryer on the small circuit board at the base.

Put everything back and turn power back on. The source of leak could be lid seal, kink in hose or ruptured hose.

If you have 2 drawer unit and the F1 error is in top drawer only then the bottom drawer has lost power. Could be due to thermal fuse blown on heater plate.

Hope this helps find the problem.

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.

Dishwasher keeps flashing F1

F1 on your dishwasher is the fault code for leaking inside the machine. the water has caused the flood switch to activate. have you put any detergent rather than your normal dishwasher detergent into the machine? if you have, the water probably leaked out of your overflow, if not, then you have a leak on the top drawer or bottom drawer. the easiest way to check is to leave the machine off for a couple of days until it drys then turn on the bottom drawer to go thru a cycle.if the F1 comes up again then the problem is on your bottom drawer. if F1 does not come up then try the top drawer. please reply if you require further help.

F1 in F&P 2 drawer dishwasher

You will need to be a bit more specific when you say "no flood".

Are you having this F1 fault in one or both drawers?

What did the engineer do when he was there last time?

Does the F1 code flash with beeps?

What happens when you turn the mains power off and on after a short delay?

Please provide the actual model number of your fisher and paykel 2 drawer dishwasher.

I have a single draw Fisher and Paykel dishwasher. I stupidly put washing up liquid in the dishwasher which resulted in a F1 problem. Water started leaking under the draw and onto my floor. I turned the...

ok , F1 means your flood switch has activated, which is underneath the drawer. now they show the F1 fault because of 2 reasons.1st there is still water underneath drawer causing switch to activate. 2nd your activator board which has the flood switch attached is faulty reading your posting it has been about 15 days since the fault happened. the water should have dryed around switch by now. if there is power to the unit and it is still coming up with F1 fault then possibly you have damaged the activator board. please reply and tell me if you have power on or off at the present time. to fix the problem it is alittle bit involved but i can guide you thru it when you reply .good luck

I have a Fisher & Paykel Model #DD603 double dishwasher it is coming on with a code F1 with a little wrench Whats going on ?

An F1 fault means that the Mains Filter board on the bottom pan has detected water, a leak. There are, unfortunately, a few possibilities of the cause of this. Most likely it is bad lid motors (the motors that lift and pull down the lid to seal the drawers) or a broken Link Support. This is the plastic piece that hold all the hoses and wiring out of the way when you open and shut the drawers. A portion of this Link breaks free and gets lodged in between the drawer and the lid causing water to pour out into the lower pan when the unit is running. You'll need to have a Tech out to take a look at it, if you can find one. Good luck.

We have the Q 2 drawer dishwasher stopped working.

the f1 is the flood sensor....a leak has accured....either a dish to larger or lid motor has failed. will need to remove bottom drawer and soak up water and then let air dry for a day or two....turn off the breaker this will keep it from beeping and running the pumps....after drying unit will run, but need to watch the dishes you put in drawers.

RE: Fischer paykal F1 code

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

Asko 1776 dishwasher error message

open up the underside of the dishwasher and check the 2 terminals that connect to the heater element. Sometimes they burn off and it is a quick repair to just put a new terminal on the end. Also make sure the water going into the dishwasher is hot, as that can cause this problem too. Hope this helps
