There is none.
You have to dry the base of the dishwasher housing where flood switch is located. Make sure the dishwasher is plugged off before you attempt any work on it.
Take the drawer out and use towels and hair dryer to dry the base under the drawer. The cause of the leak needs to be determined. Perhaps broken lid seal or leaky hoses.

One of the common reasons for an F1 fault is stacking the dish drawer too high. This prevents the drawer sealing properly, water leaks on to the bottom tray, and the F1 fault displays.

You can open the bottom drawer and reach in behind it to feel the moisture (make sure the unit is UNPLUGGED). You can dry it like this with a hair dryer but much better to take the drawer out. Simply remove two round plugs (don't twist them) and release two tabs at the bottom front of the slide. The drawer lifts out.

I had this problem with no obvious source of a water leak. It turned out to be the drawer not sealing properly. It was easily fixed by winding up the drawer seal actuators a couple of turns. Best to download the service manual from the Fisher and Paykell site to see how to do this. The explanation looks complex but it's really quite simple to do.

I have a EIDW6105GS1 all of the light flash! it did it once before and I thought I reset it somehow! but I cant remember! can you help?


There might be a possibility of resetting by pressing High Temp button 5 times. But I don't think this may solve the problem.

All lights flashing could mean a flood detection. This means water is leaking into the base of dishwasher. The flood switch has to be dried to make it work again. Also need to find the source of the leak. Make sure dishwasher is disconnected from mains power before attempting to work in it.

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.

Error Code FL


The FL (Over Fill) error code indicates that the flood pressure switch is open (tripped). It is likely that you are getting the LD (Long Drain) fault code because the control detects that the flood pressure switch will not reset after running the drain pump. Your likely failure is in the flood pressure switch

Tapping on the flood pressure switch with the handle of a screw driver may reset it. Reassemble the washer and see if it will work properly. If not, then you will need to replace the flood pressure switch. The part number for the flood pressure switch is 8054767. You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the flood pressure switch is 8054767.

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.

Water in bottom of dishwasher, how do i drain & reset?


Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You shouldNEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

E9 error on a smeg dwf 66 dishwasher. Can't find pressure switch/pressostat?


http://www.ukwhitegoods.co.uk/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=45951 click the link directly also click this link directly to get the exact picture http://www.ukwhitegoods.co.uk/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=102 --------------- also try this open the door, switch it off, switch it on and immediately press the program button 4 times within 3 seconds. (Don't wait for any lights when you switch it on, just quickly press the button 4 times).
The two end lights should light up. Press the program button and one of the lights should go off.
Switch it off for about 20 seconds, switch it on, switch it off for about 20 seconds, switch it on and it should be reset.
If resetting doesn't cure it, check that the base isn't flooded and the anti flood device activated.
If you're getting any other error code don't do the reset, just post the lights that are flashing, 1 being left and 5 being right.
------------- Check for water in the base of the machine, not the tub.
Drain the water from the base, if there is any, and the machine will reset itself.
If there's no water follow the reset procedure as previously described.
You must get the two end lights lit first before you can carry out the rest of the reset procedure.
If you can't get the two end lights lit then it's possibly a faulty pcb.
----------- if by chance its faulty pcb then Faulty PCB.ne pcb costs £120 + VAT + call out charge so not worth doing
