Check the hose from the detergent tray to the drum to make sure that it is free from debris.

First take the top off by removing 2 screw in the back(Top right and Top left). Slide the top off and underneath the tray, feel around the tube to see if there is any blockages. You may have to pull the hose out.

SOURCE: water is pouring out of my dispenser drawer

I have read other folks say that this has happened to them when a sock or wash cloth gets stuck behind the rubber seal of the door. There is a pipe that drains the water from your detergent tray and it may be clogged with a sock. Try feeling around behind the rubber seal in proximity to the detergent tray and see if there is a piece of clothing stuck in the pipe that drains the detergent tray. Also remove the tray and check the pipe from that end too.

Ds603 flood switch has been activated


The flood switch is at base of dishwasher housing under the drawer. Water leakage has occured to trigger this. Turn power off to dishwasher and take the power chord out. Pull the drawer out and use towels and hair dryer to dry the base. Put drawer back in and reconnect. Should work. Need to find the cause of leak. Either damaged lid seal or leaky hoses. Sometimes too much foam in detergent can cause it. Use recommended detergent and appropriate quantity per user manual.

Fisher & Paykel DD24DCTB6 top drawer beeps instead of starting


It is very likely the two problems are not linked. Use small quantities of power detergent (Finish works best) to avoid foaming. The foaming usually triggers flood switch and shuts dishwasher. If the beeping is constant then most likely the flood switch is triggered. But if you get one or 2 beeps when you press start, then it is likely some sensor in drawer is faulty. Usually the drawer close switch is not working.

Keeps coming up with fault "F1"


Is that in one drawer or both?

Generally it means the flood switch under the drawer (inside the housing is activated). This means water is leaking from somewhere - foam in detergent, cracked or crinked hoses, door seal leak etc.

To fix, take the drawers out from housing and dry the flood switch located in the centre of the housing base. Need towels and hair dryer.

Make sure the power is turned off.

Fisher Paykel Dish Drawer flood alert switch


Switch the main power off and on after a short time. If the error does not go away then you have water collection in the base of the dishwasher under the drawer.

Take the bottom drawer out and try to use a couple of towels to dry out the base plus use a hair dryer. (make sure the power is turned off at the mains switch). This should dry out the flood switch.

Now about the reason for water collection - could be kink in drain hose, water leak from drawer seal, foaming due to incorrect detergent.

You have not mentioned if the error is occuring in both drawers or just one.

F1 error


Not sure if you are getting the F1 error in both drawers or just one.

This is a result of flood switch activating and is due to water getting under the drawer into the housing. Turn the power off at the mains and pull the drawer out as much as possible. Take a few towels and dry the base of the housing under the drawer. Use hair dryer if possible. Wait for an hour or so to make sure the flood switch is dry. Turn on the dishwasher. Do this in both drawers if necessary.

Reason for this is either too much foam in detergent or leaky drain hose or water getting from leaky drawer gasket.

Code F1 keeps draining constantly


Turn off the main power to the dishwasher.

I am assuming you are getting F1 error code flashing on the LCD display. This occurs if the flood switch is activated.

The flood switch is located at the base of the drawer tub. You will have to either extend the drawers out fully or take them out depending on the amount of water that would have collected at the base of the tubs. Get some towels and dry the base out. You may also need a hair dryer.

Once the flood switch dries off the drawer should work ok when you turn back the power.

The causes of the flood switch trriggering is either too much foam in detergent (use recommended detergent) or leak in water in or drain pipe.

Please remember to rate the solution if it helps or post a comment if not.

The flood switch has been activated on our Fisher & Paykel 2-drawer dishwasher. How do we reset the button?


Turn off the main power to the dishwasher.

I am assuming you are getting F1 error code flashing (if your drawers have LCD display) or the LEDs are flashing if you have intergrated drawers.

The flood switch is located at the base of the drawer tub. You will have to either extend the drawers out fully or take them out depending on the amount of water that would have collected at the base of the tubs. Get some towels and dry the base out. You may also need a hair dryer.

Dishwasher keeps flashing F1


F1 on your dishwasher is the fault code for leaking inside the machine. the water has caused the flood switch to activate. have you put any detergent rather than your normal dishwasher detergent into the machine? if you have, the water probably leaked out of your overflow, if not, then you have a leak on the top drawer or bottom drawer. the easiest way to check is to leave the machine off for a couple of days until it drys then turn on the bottom drawer to go thru a cycle.if the F1 comes up again then the problem is on your bottom drawer. if F1 does not come up then try the top drawer. please reply if you require further help.

Doulbe Draw model receiving an F1 error message.


F1 indicates flood switch has been activated. I wouldn't advise you attempt repair on these drawers- they really require an expert to disassemble (I worked for F+P for 10 years!!). Depending on which model you have (DD603 or DD601v2), repair varies. 603 has a small circuit board that acts as flood switch- located in base beneath drawer- requires drawer to be removed for access. 601v2 model has polystyrene float that acts as flood switch-leaks usually caused by split lid seal(tricky to access- drawer has to be removed) In either case, a leak has occurred and activated flood switch. These drawers are very sensitive to detergents (don't use tablets!!), and the way they are loaded.
Would suggest you get service technician to remedy F1 fault
