SOURCE: flood switch

I had the same problem and I fixed mine. It wasn't hard at all. First, make sure power is off either unplug or shut off breaker. Next, open the lower drawer and on the sides toward the bottom you will see a circular recessed pin with a flat slot. Without forcing, wiggle the door down. When you get it off you have to remove the wire harness, just unplug it. Now, on the sides at the bottom, you will see where the drawer fits on the slid rail. Push the plastic button slightly to release the lock for the slid rail to the drawer and push the slid rail all the way back as to release the drawer fronm the rail. Be carefull when you release one side as to hold it up still while removing the other one. Now, flip the drawer on its side and try to get it as far out of the way as possible to the right of the unit. You will now notice a plastic cover at the back left of the unit. This is where the flood swith is. Remove this cover by sliding to the right. The will be water under the circuit board you see. Soak up as much as possible and you can use a hair dryer to get the tough spots. Now try to find the resson for the water. I had a mouse living under mine. Look for a break in one of the hoses. After all dried up turn power back in before reinstalling lower drawer. If dried properly, the dishwasher should stop beep beep beeping. Now turn water back on and run upper drawer. Inspect hoses again. 50/50 chance. If now water, reinstall lower by replacing plastic cover, place drawer on rails and slide all the way back. It should click back in if on rails correctly. Now install the door face, line up tabs into drawer, and slide up. Align holes for recessed circular pins and just push them in. Test lower. Thats all I got, Hope it helps.

My sonicare toothbrush starting beeping during the night and kept beeping.


Probably two reasons for this. 1) the contacts at the base of the brush are not clean which will prevent proper charging , the low battery beep is telling you to recharge.2) the battery needs replacing.

Flood switch 920 model


Not sure what the actual model number is but usually the F1 error with Fisher and Paykel dishwasher means water has entered the flood switch located at the base. This could be due to leaky hoses or water leaking through the door or lid seal. Wait for a day or two until the water evaporates and try again. Otherwise you will have to dry out the flood switch and then try again. Location of flood switch will depend on your model. For double drawer dishwasher you will have to take the bottom drawer out from the housing and the switch is on the floor of housing. But make sure you take the mains power chord out before touching the insides of dishwasher. Will also need to find the cause of the leak. Other reason for F1 could be loss of power to top dishdrawer if you have double drawer. But in that case the top drawer will have no lights on. The power board is located on the base of housing under bottom drawer. Once again do not touch inside of dishwasher without shutting off mains power.

It's showing F-1 on front panel of two drawer dishwasher. The front panel on both dishwashers is giving me the F-1's.


F1 in both drawers means the base of the dishwasher (under bottom drawer) has flooded. Not sure what procedure you used to clean the top drawer with baking soda. It is likely there was a leak through the lid seals due to over frothing which has caused the flood switch to trip. If the frothing was minimal then the unit should work again as soon as base dries up. Otherwise you will have to take bottom drawer off and dry the base. Make sure the mains power to dishwasher is turned off before you work inside it.

Top drawer on F&P dish drawer stuck on cycle & continuously beeping


You could isolate the top drawer by taking the controller power cable out. DIsconnect mains power to dishwasher, open top drawer and remove front cover carefull after removing 2 plastic pins on each side with plier. Controller box is on left top side, remove bottom connector and cover with insulation tape. Put things back and turn power back on.

But if you want to find the fault with top drawer then that is very trick if there is no fault code on panel except beeping First clean the top panel inside door with a clean damp cloth. If this does not change the situation, then it is very likely the controller is detecting some faulty sensor - and will need to find one by one. Are you ready for it?

Flood switch activated, intermittent beeping, motor will not turn off


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.

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.

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.

Hi We have a problem with our Fisher &


First is to make sure there is no leak. Pull out the lower tube, access from the left side only this side you can put your hand in with a small tower to dry out the wetness if there is. If it is wet dry out really good then unplug the power cord for 24 hr. After that plug power cord back. Hold the lock button while press the Start button until you see a display appears. Press the Power button to see a clear display. Then hit Start button one by one until you see Ld ( it stands for Lid down) If you miss it, keep going until it comes back in a loop. When at Ld hit the lock button. Wait until the noise is stopping. Hit the lock button again. Wait until the noise is stopping. Now you can pull out the top drawer and press the power button to get out this manual mode. Good luck.

Dishwasher beeps constantly and gives fault code that the flood switch has been activated. Neither drawer will trun off. It seems the fan keeps going, and is very noisy. It worked fine last night.


Hello there:
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
