Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher
Flood switch activated - first 4 lights conitnually beeping, have switched off for 3 days and still doing it. All spray arms and filter are clean and clear
Please clarify the model number. i am assuming you have a standard height single door dishwasher. It is likely the flood switch assembly itself is faulty and giving false results. Check the base of the dishwasher - item 95 in on page 10 in this manual. The microswitch could be faulty or the spring might be stuck.

Remove the bottom drawer by pressing in the tabs on either side of the drawer (bottom edge towards the front).
Dry out the compartment with towels and let air dry.

here is some ideas that will help you clean off the flood switch thatis causing the error
first unplug the power going to the machine
If you by accident overloaded the top drawer and this will allow water to get into the base an trigger the flood switch. which causes the error that you get .
Take the bottom drawer cover off first then took the whole drawer out and gently manuevere it to where u can get into the bottom of the unit.
use a towel and dry up any visible water.
use few paper towels to get into and under tight spaces.
now Take a blow dryer and blow the in the base for about 10 minutes. once there is No visible signs of water any where
put it back together and it should work . ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards MIchael

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.
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.

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.

Please confirm if it is a single or a double drawer.
How do you know the flood switch is activated? Do you have a display on your dishwasher and what is it showing? If no display then which lights if any on the panel are on?
Motor will not run if flood switch is activated in the fisher paykel drawer dishwwasher.
