SOURCE: 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

How do I replace the outlet hose?

The exact steps depend on the make (brand name) and model of your dishwasher, but in all cases, you will have to pull the dishwasher out from under the counter. If it's an "American" dishwasher (Whirlpool, Kenmore, KitchenAid, GE, Frigidaire, etc.), you will see the hose clamp that connects the drain hose to the dishwasher, and it will be easy to disconnect the hose from the dishwasher. But if you've got a "foreign" dishwasher (Samsung, LG, Bosch, Fischer-Paykel), replacement is much more difficult and should be left up to a professional dishwasher repairman.

How to take dishwashing liquid out of aid dispenser

I read a few tips on this site about the above problem.
Then rang Fischer and Paykel. My dishwasher is a two drawer.
They suggested using chux rolled up and pushing down aid dispenser.
After pulling out, throw out and keep doing this with a fresh rolled up piece of chux.
I did it about three times. Then I slowy poured some water in. Used fresh chux rolled up. Repeated the process a couple of times. Then repeated with dry chux, till it was all dry as much as possible. Then I poured half a cup of white vinegar onto the bottom of dishwasher and did a rinse cycle, checking for foam, every now and again.
The white vinegar stops the foam.
All seemed good.
Then I did an empty full wash "test". All good at the end. No froth at all during cycle.
After the "test" wash, I filled the aid dispenser with "rinse aid" not dishwashing liquid.

All up it took me about 20 minutes.
Thought I would pass on. And don't panic, (like I did). The woman at Fischer and Paykel was so helpful and said it is a common thing, so I didn't feel so bad.

Keep blowing fuses

This means there is water collected on the base of the dishwasher cabinet under the bottom drawer. You will need to disconnect the dishwasher mains plug and take the bottom drawer out to dry the base out. Follow instructions in this manual (page 7 step 2) to remove the drawer.

Fischer and paykel drawer dishwasher has no power to drawer, power at outlet, was flashing F1 prior to shutting down, thanks

If you have a double drawer unit then please confirm what is happening with the other drawer. Most likely the base of the dishwasher under the bottom drawer has flooded and brought down the power with it. The power board sits under the bottom drawer. BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE DISHWASHER BEFORE SWITCHING OFF THE MAINS POWER SUPPLY TO THE DISHWASHER AS THE CIRCUIT MAY BE LIVE AND GIVE A SHOCK. You will have to take the bottom drawer out and see what is happening under it.

F1 code on my Fischer Paykal drawer dish washer . This is the flood sensor . It was. tripped when water was splashed in a plug that shares the same Circuit. How do I reset the sensor?

Not sure if the flood sensor will trip if the water is splashed into the mains plug. F1 can also occur if the power to the top drawer has failed. Flood sensor trips when water collects at the base of the dishwasher housing under the bottom drawer.
I think the problem you mention has caused the power to the top drawer to fail due to a spike when the splash on the power plug occured. This is very easy to see. Check if the display on top drawer is blank.
