Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1055XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Response to suggestion.

Thank you for the suggestion and we would remove the dishwasher if we could. Unfortunately we had a flood a few years ago and the floor was replace and built up another 12 inch. We have tried to remove the dishwasher but it won't quite come. So consequently I have tried to unclog from within the dishwasher and agree with you that it could be the hose close to the pump at the back. My husband has put the end of the hose which is in the basement ( where it is connected to the water source) in CLR but this doesn't go up to where the hose connects to the dishwasher. He is going to try and fill the hose with Clr and see if it then reaches. Any suggestions would be appreciated

Re: response to suggestion.

I was talking about the water inlet line going to the fill valve. The fill valve is located on the right hand side with the bottom panel removed. From the fill valve there is a water inlet line running into the SIDE of the dishwasher tub, NOT the pump in the back. The two pumps on the dishwasher are used for the cycling of wash water and/or draining the tub. Neither pump are used for the FILL cycle. Having an inlet line under the kitchen sink would make things easier. CLR would probably do the trick, but I'm afraid that gravity is going to keep you from accomplishing what you need to do.

Expert: Tyler Z. replied 3 years ago. Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Unfortunately your dishwasher is stuck in "flood mode". What that means is that water has worked it's way down into the base pan below the dishwasher tub causing the unit to do nothing but drain. This is normally caused by the drain being clogged or too many suds in the tub causing the tub to overflow a bit. Either way, you'll need to uninstall the dishwasher and tip it forward at a 45 degree angle to drain the water out of the base pan. Be sure to put a towel under the dishwasher first so that the water is soaked up in the towel instead of going all over the floor. Once you've drained all the water out of the base pan, reinstall the dishwasher and start a new cycle and the error 1 should be gone.

Flood switch will not reset

The lid seal is damaged and it lets water go through and collect on the flood switch which may be triggering F1.

You will have to replace the lid seal. It is item 8 on page 14 of this diagram.

Hi - unfortunately my good friend it cannot be reset as one would like quite easily anyhow... water has found its way to the base of the drwaers and have activated the flooding switch - one could pull it apart to dry it - tip the water out from the base but if the leaks not repaired you will have the same problem later and will be on-going.

My dishwasher is empty and last used, successfully, 2 days ago. The motor has suddenly started running as if to empty. the only way to stop it is to switch off the electric supply

This sounds like the anti-flood device is activated which would suggest a leak,if the tray underneath has water in it then a float switch would activate and the dishwasher would constantly drain out.You will have to remove the dishwasher and remove side panels and determine where it is leaking.If you tilt the dishwasher backwards to drain out the water then mop up the water then restart the dishwasher you may see with a torch where the leak is coming from.

Hope this helps.

Anti flood system triggered Favorit 40660 dishwasher

The problem was solved by opening the machine and finding that the bottom "Y" pipe that has 3 inputs is of extremely poor quality and perforates with pin holes allowing a small amount of water to squirt out. This triggers the anti flood and error status lights flash. The outlet pump is activated and machine does not do anything. You need to replace this hose or like I modified it to work from a 32mm Y plastic junction available from most hardware shops. The wire clamps for this was replaced by "jubilee" screw tight clamps.
I worked on a table and also removed the "Brick" placed at the bottom for balance purposes by cutting the back plastic down with a saw. This made the job very easy...

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
