I had the same happen to me this morning the F1 code came up, after looking around for a manual on what code was what I found this site , reading what had been posted here I gave it a go
I tilted the washer backward to drain the water and what do you know it worked again.
test run
after the first cycle it flooded again, this time I removed the water feed pipes from inside, removed the fine s/steel screen and any other parts that could be removed,
What I found was that after many years of service of washing including jars that still had the paper labels, it was the paper that turned into paper pulp blocking the drain screen
so after cleaning and re-installing everything I started a new wash test cycle

The dishwasher works better now than it has for a long long time

So when you get the F1 code don't just call for the service guy to come out , take it apart yourself and just give everything a good clean and it will work like new again

Good luck

I had the above problem also just last night. I have lost my manual, so turned off the power and basically just dried the interior using a sponge and finished off with the hair dryer (as suggested) and she's all go now. Thankyou so much for saving me $110.

I had the F1 error in the window and the dishwasher would not turn off.  The owners manual says to shut power off and contact service technician.  The house call is $110 and they can't get out for a week.  I followed your advice about drying out the bottom, and it works fine now.  Thanks. 


P.S. It would be nice if the manufacturer would offer this solution in the owners manual.

Do you have a F1 and wrench in the window? If so you have water inside and beneath the second drawer. Check it out and if so dry it out with towels and hair dryer. Re-assemble and see if that works. Both bottom and top were going on and F1 showed up in the window. Drying out interior bottom fixed problem.

In case you don't have one, here is a downloadable Users Manual from the Fisher & Paykel website: --> The one thing you can always try to do with an electronically controlled appliance such as this one is to "unplug" it for an hour or so and see if that resets the electronic controls to their factory defaults and makes them work again. Since a dishwasher can't simply be unplugged, you will have to shut off the circuit breaker that goes to your dishwasher, which does the same thing as "unplugging" it. Any dishwasher _should_ be on it's own circuit, so this will most likely not shut off power to anything else in the house (such as the kitchen lights). If that doesn't work and it still has problems, then I'm sorry to say that you will simply have to call a repair person to come look at the unit. Like most modern electronically controlled appliances, they would probably just have to replace the controller circuit board in the machine. Sorry if that's bad news, but I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that a "power down" will simply make it work again! ;)

Bosch Axxis WTE86300US turns itself off after ten minutes, won't turn back on for a few minutes after that

I would bet you have a bad sensor. There are a couple of sensors that monitor heat. When it gets too hot they shut it down as a safety precaution. Once it is cool enough it will start up again.

I think the heater has gone in our dishwasher WC370IN it's just over a year old, is there anyway of checking the element?

Hello, and to answer your question yes there is a way you can if you shut off the power first using a multimeter perform a continuity test on the element itself to assure that the element is good in the unit. If you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick

Switch dishwasher on and starts up ok but when it comes to pumping water in it stops and does not do anything else.


Investigate these five areas if your dishwasher won't fill with water:

As water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. When the float reaches a predetermined level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Check your float assembly. Replace it if you need to.

The water that fills your dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with your dishwasher's filling ability.

Your dishwasher may not be filling with water simply because the water valve's filter screens are dirty and debris-filled. Gain access to your water inlet valve and try cleaning it out. This might be enough to solve the problem. You can learn how to access your water inlet valve in the replace a dishwasher water inlet valve section.

Alternatively, your water inlet valve could be defective altogether. That could be the reason your dishwasher is not filling. Test it for continuity. If it is not functioning as it should, replace it.

Your dishwasher's drain valve is regulated by a drain solenoid. If the solenoid is malfunctioning, it may not allow the drain valve to funtion properly, which in turn could be the reason your dishwasher is not filling with water. Investigate your drain valve and test the solenoid. If the solenoid is faulty, replace it.

Hello my tricity bendix dishwasher won't take in water, it will pump it out and when I turned water off at the mains and disconnected the water pipe and put it in a bucket turned mains back on the...


When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Hobart LX 30H shuts off and turns back on by itself

Hello Jon,

I work in the product service department for Hobart Corp. and work mainly with the Hobart dishwashers. The most common problem with what you have going on is a faulty keypad on the front of the unit. This is the component with the actual on/off/wash buttons on it. If the problem is very frequent, then you could contact your local Hobart service office and they could come out and troubleshoot the problem to be certain that this is the faulty part before just buying a part and hoping that it works. If you would like to discuss this a bit further or need assistance as to a contact for your local Hobart office, you can contact us at 937-332-2525, and press option #2.

Have a great day!

Delay Start doesn't function

Does the power go off in your house from time to time? Have you tried to do a 2-hr delay during the day so you can watch it? Keep checking every 15 min. or so to see approx. when it shuts off.
