Most likely the lid seal of top drawer is damaged. Need to replace using following kit. Not an easy job and may need a technician who understands the model.

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher leaked

From what you describe, drain water from the top drawer is getting into the bottom drawer or waste water from the disposer is backing up into the bottom drawer.

1. Each drawer has its own drain hose. Each hose should terminate at the drain point with a 'Y' adapter.
2. Inspect the drain point (under the sink where the drain pipes are) to make sure this 'Y' adapter is present. (you should see two drain hoses from the DW). If not present, then the DW drain lines are not installed properly. (Someone took a shortcut and installed the 'Y' adapter behind the DW)
3. If terminated properly, make sure the drain hoses extend upward as they leave the drain point.

It is important the drain lines are connected properly to ensure proper drainage from the DW. Consult the installation manual for complete details.

SOURCE: dish drawer leaks Fisher Paykel

When water accumulates in the bottom it triggers an error code and it keeps running. There is a water sensor in the bottom. I pull out the bottom drawer, mop up the water and use a hair dryer to dry the water (the more you mop up the less you need the hair dryer). Be careful to not get any of the plastic too hot. Kill the power before messing with the unit. The first time I did this it took 20 minutes to dry out. I have gotten more proficient and it take about 5 minutes now.

I had a water leak which was due to the rinse agent cap not being completely sealed. Water leaked out of a small hole in the front (I'm guessing an air vent but don't know for sure) and flooded the bottom.

I also had a leak due to having too tall a dish in the drawer and the top not sealing. I currently have a leak on the top drawer of unknown origin, but the bottom drawer still works.
Hope this helps.

LP is a setting for Low pressure. To reset your pressure to HP, hold the Programme and Eco touch switches simultaneously for 5 seconds. Once the setup mode is entered a beep is emitted and
the LCD is red with ‘HP’ or 'LP' displayed. Push the Start/Pause button to alternate between HP and LP. and push the power button to exit.

SOURCE: I have a Fisher Paykel dishwasher with water in top drawer

You need a Air gap kit designed by Fisher and Paykel to address this problem. It is pricey but it is worthy. I used this and very happy with it since no back flow problem from one while other running. Here is a link to order it.http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/product/WT50/WT50-Dual-Air-Gap-Kit/

F1 error on Fisher and Paykel Dish Drawer


Sorry did not see your problem report earlier. If you have checked the sensor under the bottom drawer and it is dry, then F1 is caused by top drawer power filter fault. This means the bottom drawer controller is giving the F1 error but the top drawer controller has no power. Can you confirm this.

Our fisher and paykel dishdrawer won't wash. It comes up with F1 and flashing light on control panel.


the dynamo dishwashing stuff has caused foaming which reached the base of the dishdrawer unit causing the flood switch to trip. This gives F1 error.
Not sure how much foaming has occured.

Best to turn off power and take power cable out from socket. then empty the drawer using towels. pull out the bottom drawer and wait a day or so to let the foam disappear from the bottom of dishwasher (under the bottom drawer). Connect the power and see if F1 had gone. If not, you need more work. Post a comment based on the above suggestion and I will guide you further if required. Always use Finish dishwasher power only (recommended quantity) as the drawers are small and don't need much detergent.

I have the fisher and paykel dish drawer DD630 and on both of the dish drawers the F-1 signal is flashing... and will not shut off. I do not know where my power supply is..I thought i would take all...


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa.
F1 error means that the flood switch has been activated. You'll need to reset it by powering off the breaker or by unplugging the unit from the power socket and mains for more than five minutes. Please check that there is no blockage in the drain hose and it is not raised higher otherwise the water will run back to the dishwasher. Also perform the following procedure---

    • Unplug power and remove bottom dish drawer
    • Use a Sponge and dry all the excess water underneath
    • Remove circuit board cover
    • Dry all around and underneath as much as possible
    • Apply hairdryer for 10-15min

Thanks

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.
