To fix essentially you need to reboot... unplug at wall - wait about 30 seconds - 1 min then replug. should reboot and be back to normal.
if you can, pull drawer out at end of cycle so condensation does not cause this problem going forward... ours does this when it's higher humidity

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.

SOURCE: My fisher & paykel dishwasher

please confirm which model do you have 820 or 920.

I am assuming this is the one without display.

most likely cause is the flood switch at the base has actuated. This means water has leaked through the door gasket.

One way to check is to turn power off and draw the dishwasher out from under the sink. May have to disconnect the electric and water inlet.

Tilt the dishwasher to one side and wait for about 1 hour. Try the power on and see if the beep goes away.
You can access this switch by opening the chassis. It is item 5 on page 10 of this parts catalog. You can use a hair dryer to dry the circuit board.

If no help then you have to call the technician as there is not much service information readily available for this model.

See this user manual if you do not have one.

SOURCE: My dishwasher keeps flashing F1 error message

The f1 code is caused moisture in the electronics part most likely in the door.see if there is any way that you can see where moisture might get in and plug that spot up. In the case of the f1 code when not using the dishwasher leave the door propped open to help dry out the electronics.

E6 error code on fisher and paykel dishwaher



The code E6 is for the flood switch

Pull the appliance out, tip it back about 45 degrees and see if water runs out of the base.
If it does, drain the base (under where the tub) completely and the anti flood should reset.
If there is an aquastop device on your fill hose, after draining the base, turn off the water supply, disconnect the aquastop device and allow it to de-pressurize. Connect it back up and try again.
If it happens again, you'll need to check for a leak.
The normal cause is over foaming, using multifunction tablets and rinse aid, or just spilling rinse aid.

DW60CE dishwasher - E6 fault flood switch activated. Unit has not been use


DW60CE dishwasher - E6 fault flood switch activated.
After tipping the dishwasher on its side & it releasing its water from its tray, the fault cleared. I removed the bottom cover & inspected its internals for traces of a leak or evidence of leaking.
I could follow the calcium or detergent trail from the rear water duct connection near the top feeding sprayer arm, down the back of the dishwasher & into the tray. The lock nut on the duct where it enters through the inside S/S skin had become loose & simply needed to be tightened.

E6 fault unable to reset all cycle lights showing


E6 is "Flood switch activated."


Turn the water off and disconnect power to the dishwasher, then empty water from the inside. Clean drain well and check the drain hose at the back. If that does not work, then the water pressure switch is at fault. Call your Fisher & Paykel dealer or Authorized Service Center.

F1 error on top and bottom. Power won't shut off until unplugged.


Generally it means the flood switch under the drawer (inside the housing is activated). This means water is leaking from somewhere - foam in detergent, cracked or crinked hoses, door seal leak etc.

To fix, take the drawers out from housing and dry the flood switch located in the centre of the housing base. Need towels and hair dryer.

Make sure the power is turned off.

Hi Both drawers show error F1 flashing beeping with rinse light on and both pumps run after power is applied to machine


F1 error indicates flood switch in base has activated, meaning machine has leaked. This causes machine to drain continously, and can only be stopped by switching off power. Not easy to fix if you don't have experience- bottom drawer has to be removed to access flood switch, then machine needs to be test run and checked for leaks. Best to call the professionals!!
