Re: need users manual, (f2) fault
Hi and welcome to FixYA! F2 means the motor is not being sensed to be rotating. Lift off the wash arm and see if you can spin the blue impeller by hand. If it won't turn, it may be frozen of ajmed by an object like broken glass. Sometimes also if you let the drawer sit unused for a long time (some people only use the top drawer) the rotor will freeze up. The part number is a 525884P if you need a new one, it requires no tools to change it. As for the user guide, you can get one free here: http://fisherpaykelparts.net/index.php?blockitemid=29

The problem is linked to rotor operation during discharge cycle. By replacing the rotor with bottom will only address part of the problem. There is very likely some obstruction in the pump cavity. This is the small channel connecting the drain sump and the pump cavity. Grab a thin but rigid wire and clear this channel. Usually a bone chip or some seed. Also confirm if the top rotor worked ok when you moved it to the bottom drawer.
The F2 fault implies there is a problem with the motor rotor which is located under the drain plate at the bottom right in the centre of the drawer. The rotor is actually driving the wash arms.
F2 does not necessarily mean you have to replace the rotor. It is also possible there is some debris inside the rotor cavity which is preventing the rotor from rotating at the normal speed.
Remove the racks and the wash arm. Twist the centre ring so that it disengages the drain plate. You can then pull the rotor out with a few back and forth twisting motions. Check if the cavity is clean. Re-insert everthing and start the wash cycle. If F2 comes in again, you will have to eliminate the cause by using the rotor from the bottom drawer and see if it makes any difference. You may then have to buy a replacement part.
I am slightly unsure if your double drawer dishwasher is the prefinished model (self standing with LCD display) or the integrated model with no LCD display.
The spanner symbol on the top drawer is telling you that a fault code is actuated. But I am not sure where this symbol is on your unit if it is built -in (integrated model).
You will have to check which red light (from the left) is coming on.
I assume there are 5 lights on the inside of drawer.
With the bottom drawer - again you will have to check which light from the left comes on sometimes as you mentioned.
If you have a user manual you should be able to tell what Fault code it is - something like F1 or F2 etc. Is it continuously beeping when the red light is on? How do you turn the beeps off?
The scrubbing bush symbol on bottom drawer may not be a problem. It appears the drawer is programmed to a particular option. But I am not sure where this symbol is showing if you do not have an LCD display panel. You can reset the option - possibly auto lock or auto power or dish cleaned (depending on your model) if you follow the user manual.
happy to take you through a possible cause of the problem if you post answers to my questions above.
Ok this is what you do you need to swap over the motor rotors from top drawer to bottom drawer. check for anything jammming the rotor etc when you take it out. if it works with the other drawers rotor then you need a new motor rotor. cheers
Craig, we had virtually the same situation. The repair man came and it took 2 minutes to fix. The problem was that the bottom drawer had not been used for a couple of years and thus the impellor had jammed. to fix it take out the basket, lift off the rotor arm and unscrew the knob. Then just work the impellor around with your fingers until it frees. It then worked perfectly. We will use the bottom often from now on to prevent this happening again.
By now the left over pumpkin pie will be a bit green!!
Same thing just happened to me. There was a slight leak from the top drawer and it wet the tray on the bottom which caused a short and the circut board and the plug to the top drawer melted. I need to replace the board and wiring harness and am looking for a manual to find out how to remove the faceplate on the top drawer. What you should do first is remove the bottom drawer and check dry the bottom tray if it is wet. There are two circles on the side of the drawer on either side. Turn these with pliers and release the plastic clips on the ends of the drawer slides. you will then be able to pull out the drawer and inspect. Good luck
Could be the little non return valve mounted underneath the top drawer. Lie down on the floor under the top drawer, remove the main plastic pannel covering the bottom to expose the black drainage hose (you may need to cut away a cable tie). Remove the drainage hose from bottom of the drawer - at the start of the drainage hose there will be a small rubber type flap - if it looks broken or worn out, it will need replacing - call F & P for a replacement, approx $5 + postage for a pair (one for the top drawer and one for the bottom)
Hope this helps
