SOURCE: dishwasher f1 problem on fisher paykel

All the information that I have found about this particular problem indicates that the "F1" error is a flood or overflow alarm. It's generally caused by a clog in the drain line and/or tub not sealing properly when closed.

If this is a drawer style dishwasher there is a lid in the equipment cabinet that must seat properly on the drawer when it is closed. If you place items in the dishwasher that are too tall for the drawer lid to seat properly, it will not seal and water will splash over the sides of the tub during the wash cycle.

Another common problem is a clogged or kinked drain line. Remove the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged. Check it at BOTH ends.

The alarm is activated by a float switch in the bottom tray of the dishwasher. Look to see if this is any standing water in the bottom tray. If there is any water, or signs of wetness, the alarm will not clear until it is dried out. I found a couple of recommendations to clear the alarm. The first involved removing the dishwasher from where it is installed and tilting it at a 45 degree angle to pour any standing water out. Another method is to dry the bottom out with towels as best you can, and then use a hair dryer to dry any residual water. I hope I'm on the right track with this and I hope this solves your problem. Post back if you have any further questions.

CAUTION: UNPLUG the dishwasher or turn off the breaker BEFORE servicing inside the cabinet.

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel dishwasher model dd602 error code F4

Hi there,
It means your filter is dirty. Remove metal plate at bottom & scrub with a toothbrush. Clean arms as well.
Clean all around the door & pull out the lift out filter, scrub clean with a toothbrush.

SOURCE: we have F1 light appearing and cannot remove

Hi,

I am Sorry to hear regarding this Error. But, i am afraid that you need to call a technician as this Error refers to Faulty Control Board. It has to be replaced.

You could try to Press Cancel / Clear buttons, if any to check if that could improve the situation or keep the Dishwasher unplugged for few minutes, and then turning it ON, say after 30 minutes to check if that could fix the problem. ( You would be lucky if you could get it fixed by this ).

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

No water going into machine


If the kitchen inlet tap is open, then you have couple of issues - water pressure setting (high or low) is changed and is not same as mains pressure or the inlet valve in dishwasher is faulty.

U1 code 920 model filter is clean no hoses bent or kinked ? can it be fixed ? hans


The U1 code means:-
Dishwasher attempted to fill to correct level but failed. = Water tap not turned on. Turn the water tap on.
Too much foam. Rinse aid setting too high or has been spilled. = Turn the rinse aid dial to a
lower setting or wipe the spill. Incorrect detergent. Ensure that you use a detergent that is intended for a domestic automatic dishwasher. Egg yolk. Place an extra tablespoon of detergent in the dishwasher door for pre-rinsing.
Too much detergent. Use the recommended quantity of detergent
Wash pump faulty. Call your Fisher & Paykel Dealer or Authorised Service Centre.
Dishwasher not draining. = Drain hose bent or kinked. Straighten drain hose so water can flow through. Strainer blocked. Empty out the strainer and ensure the filter plate is clear of food
particles..

F & P DD603 starts to wash then beeps & flashes U1 - Fill Fault. I have cleaned both drawers & replaced all parts correctly, still comes up with U1.


Have you checked whether you are getting the water supply to the dishwasher. Check if there is no kink in the water hose.

If no problem with water supply then check the water pressure rating is OK for the dishwasher.
