Hi, welcome to FixYA!
Don't use a Y-connector with a single air gap, it will end up having cross-drain issue down the road if not right away.
Your double dishdrawer is two machines in one enclosure. Do it right and install a dual air gap, which as separate connections for each drain hose and the water from one hose can never end up back-draining thru the other and back into the machine.

You can order dual ais gaps here:

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.

I have a small piece of plastic stuck in the drain hose of my fisher paykel top dish washer drawer. I have tried cable wire but it does not budge after about 3 inches. Is there a way to remove the bottom...


There are two pieces of drain house in a double drawer FP dishwasher. The one from top drawer, the one from bottom drawer which then merge into a U adapter before hoing as a single hose into the kitchen sink.
I don't think anything can be achieved by taking the bottom drawer out. If the obstruction is in the top drawer drain hose, you will have to take that out and turn it over and disengage the hose from the bottom of the sump. Your best bet is to refer to this install guide on removing the drawers. Refer page 7 step 2.

Use reverse method to put it back in. Make sure you keep a stool nearby to hold the drawer in place and not let it fall on the floor. The cables and hoses are very tight and need care when handling.

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.

I have a fisher pakel double drawer dishwasher and it keeps pausing a couple of times through the cycle how do I stop this


Pausing - how long? The pause means the wash motor keeps halting as it is waiting for the water temperature to increase to the right wash selection. If the heater is sluggish then it will take longer to heat. Try a simple rinse cycle and see if there is any difference. (Rinse cycle will use cold water to complete)

Fisher Paykel double drawer built in top drawer stops mid cycle.


It would help to know which LEDS are on when it stops. Are you able to open the lid etc. Does this happen with the short rinse cycle as well?

I have a Fisher and Paykel 2-drawer dishwasher. The top drawer is stuck in the rinse cycle and I cannot change it to another cycle. Please advise.


Assuming the controller of the top drawer is still ok, take a clean damp cloth and wipe the top panel where the program keys are located.

If nothing happens, you will have to check if the controller connector is not loose. Take the front cover off and check the controller connectors.

Please rate this solution to help fixya serve you better in future.

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!!

Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher leaked


From what you describe, drain water from the top drawer is getting into the bottom drawer or waste water from the disposer is backing up into the bottom drawer.

1. Each drawer has its own drain hose. Each hose should terminate at the drain point with a 'Y' adapter.
2. Inspect the drain point (under the sink where the drain pipes are) to make sure this 'Y' adapter is present. (you should see two drain hoses from the DW). If not present, then the DW drain lines are not installed properly. (Someone took a shortcut and installed the 'Y' adapter behind the DW)
3. If terminated properly, make sure the drain hoses extend upward as they leave the drain point.

It is important the drain lines are connected properly to ensure proper drainage from the DW. Consult the installation manual for complete details.
