After 2 minutes top washer blinks. Water does not drain
We have had the dishwasher for about 8 months in our new home. It had been working well. Then we noted that the top drawer would start to blink at about 2 minutes when the screen would start beeping and blinking on and off. We would then have to hit the power button. When I opened the top drawer the water seems to be accumulating in the drawer and no water is draining. The drain tube appears normal and not kinked in any way.

In a consumer cycle, the appliance is indicating F8 E1 (slow/no draining). This is because of wrong signals from the circulation pump read by the control board and interpreted as "water present", when there is no water. During draining (and in fact, there is no water), the failure occurs.
1. Check if drain hose is not closed/clogged
2. Drain pump faulty, harness or wiring faulty, control board faulty
3. If machine is equipped with OWl, issue might be caused by damaged or dirty OWl. Clean the sensor lenses then , if issue is not solved, replace OWI (optical water indicator).
I understand that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire washer, model# FWS1339A, draining water. Here are a couple of suggestions that you can try.
1)Check the drain hose for any kinks or clogs. Also, make sure that the drain hose is only 6-8 inches down in the drain pipe. If the drain hose gets backed up with water this error can occur.
2)Make sure that the actual drain pipe, where the drain hose goes into, is only a maximum height of 8 feet. If it is longer than 8 feet, you will need to cut some of the pipe off.
3)Make sure that your homes drain pipes are not clogged. If they are, you will need to unclog them. Call a plumber if necessary.
After checking the above suggestions, reset your washer by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When you restore power, start any cycle on your washer. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.
Thanks for using FixYa. F1
error means that the flood switch has been activated.You'll need to reset it by powering off the
breaker or by unplugging the unit from the power socket and mains for more than
five minutes. Please check that there is no blockage in the drain hose and it
is not raised higher otherwise the water will run back to the dishwasher. Also
perform the following procedure---
Unplug power and
remove bottom dish drawer
a Sponge and dry all the excess water underneath
circuit board cover
all around and underneath as much as possible
hairdryer for 10-15min
Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or
else revert for further assistance.
use only cascade complete cleaner, clean unit remove basket motor cover chopper cover clean and vac out trash washer all screens increase water temp. to 130 degrees if no children in home if children in home not over 125 degrees temp. monthly run dishwasher cleaner product through waser cost around 10 $ at lowes
I would check tosee if your water meaning hot water temp is hook up correctly. i have seen cold water going to machine and causing the machine to do funny things. 1 the unit drains.2. it fills.3.it washes if the water is cold there is your problem .make sure b4 you start machine the water going in is hot. let me know how you made out maybe we can further check. p.s im a old bosch tech:)
Hello, I have just installed a similar model, and took the side panel off to see how it was put together ;)
The drain hose goes in the back of the dishwasher, then loops up the right side (as you are looking at the front)(this is to act as a "trap" to keep sewer gases from coming back into your washer, I assume), and then connects to the drain pump under the washer.
In order the change the hose, you will need to remove the left side panel, and the bottom panel, and this will give you access to the entire hose....
Stew, Im not really sure what model you have 665, 587, 363 or what. If it's a 665, it sounds like the wash motor is not getting power. Remove the toe panel and look at the start capacitor. See if one of the wires came off during the reinstallation. Should be on the left side of the wash motor. If one of the wires is off, wash motor won't run. If that's ok, check the main harness to the motor. Catriver
simple one this, just clear out the waste pipe and the inside food filter and the outlet pump, also check the outlet where the pipe goes (under the sink?) its a simple blockage somewhere, if i have helped rate me, and work safe remove the plug etc
