The sensor is a flood switch at the base of the housing under the drawer.

The flood sensor is located below the bottom drawer. If you take the bottom drawer out and there is water in the pan then the flood switch is probably tripped. Soak up the water with a towel and apply a hair dryer towards the rear left corner of the cabinet. The flood switch is part of the Mains Filter control board and should not be messed with (even with the dishwasher unplugged)... There is an underlying problem that caused the F1 fault and you should have a technician look at it.

Hello, I have a Fisher and Paykel DD603I and both drawers have a red light on the play/pause button and won't stop beeping. Can you please help me with a solution to this problem?


Hello,
It sounds like the dishwasher is in flood mode. You would need to dry up the water in the base pan and test. The link below is a video that explains how to repair your fisher paykel dishwasher.

Both drawers not cleaning well. Glassware comes out cloudy. Have cleaned all filters, taken out rotors etc. Some detergent remains in dispenser after wash cycle complete. Now 5 years old and was working...


Try running a hot wash without anything in and just use some dishwasher cleaner (normal cleaner).
Also make sure your water softness is set correctly and that your salt dispenser is full.

I have a 10 year old dishdraw (Model No DD601v2). It is displaying a fault message "F1" on the top draw display and will not start. What fault is this indicating?


Normally F1 should display in both drawers.

But this is a bit unsual. Please confirm if you are still able to operate the bottom drawer.

My Fisher & Paykel DD 603 has the fault code


Check at bottom housing both top and bottom drawers for leaks.
Pull the tube out, on the left side below the tub you can access to touch the bottom housing. Dry it out with a tower. Un plug the power cord at least 24 hor so the flood sensor can be dried out before pluggin it back.
However, if you don't fix this leak, the sam F1 problem will happen again.
There is not much clogging up in filter. If you expect something clogged up, you have to take the spraying arm off then take out the bottom stainless steel with a lot of holes out to see the impeller clean or not. Good luck.

Fisher & Paykel single drawer dishwasher F1 flashing.


F1 indicates a problem with the Flood sensor. I cleaned all the filters etc. removed the drawer viewed under the drawer, it was dry. There is nothing further I can do, so called the Appliances repair person and booked an appointment for him to determine if an outlet hose is blocked or has a hole in it or whatever. Thanks for all the suggestions Blokes. I'm technically challenged. Happy New Year
