How do I stop the F1 error even after assessing there is no water in the bottom tray and dried it with hair dryer just in case


There should be F1 on both displays. "If power fails to the bottom tub it will cause the top tub to go F1. Test heater plate." (from the service manual).
If there is F1 on both displays it could be a faulty flood switch or PCB.

Fisher & paykel fault "F1" is displayed on the top


hello
F1 means the flood sensor senses water at base of machine at PC board.
You need to take out bottom drawer and check for water puddle under where the drawer was.If there is water you can get the machine going again by comletely drying it out(F1WILL CLEAR),but it still means you have a leak.With bottom drawer out you can really see whats going on.Once F1 is clear you can actually run upper drawer and see if it leaks.Most likely culprit are the lid actuators.Replace all 4 . It'll run like new.Don't overload drawer .That can cause lid leak too.Also the PC board may be damaged and may start to go crazy giving fake F1 codes.$80 easy fix.
good luck

How to reset the flood switch on a fisher & paykel


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.

Dishwasher beeping and displaying F1 on screen. HELP!!


F1 error means that the flood switch has been activated. To reset the flood switch you need to remove the bottom dish drawer to be able to access the reset buttons. To remove the drawer you press in the rectangle buttons and slide them back under the drawer, they are located right behind the front panel at the bottom of the drawer. It may help to have someone help hold the drawer for you. Once they are slid back all the way place the bottom drawer on the floor to the left side of the washer as you look at it. This will give you the access you need. Lie down on the floor so you can see in the bottom. There you will see a white coloured plastic box on each side, one is for the top drawer the other is for the bottom drawer. Make sure the power is off to the dishwasher. Place your finger underneath the box and you will feel a small pin/lever. This is attached to the magnetic flood switch and resets it when you click it one way and then the other. Once you have done this turn the machine back on before you put in the bottom drawer as if it does not work then you will need to activate it maybe a couple of times. Once the F1 alarm disappears you are good to go. Place the drawer back in the opposite way to removal. Slide one rack forward and rest the drawer on it. Then slide the other side out and it will snap lock into position.

Soapy water caused machine to stop f1 switch came on?


I am assuming you turned off the mains power. Turning the power back on should reset the machine.

Its showing f1 error when machine is turned on


too have had this problem and looking at fixing it. I found a google cached thread on a different website that may assist you:

http://72.14.207.104/search?q=cache:B0R4JOEfwBAJ:serviceeveryday.com/forums/showthread.php%3Ft%3D124%26goto%3Dnextoldest+fisher+paykel+fault+code+reset&hl=en&gl=au&ct=clnk&cd=8
(copy and paste the entire line in your address bar)

Using the thread above, this is what I'll be trying tonight:

1. Check the drain hose and make sure there is no blockage. Also ensure the hose isn't raised too high as water might run back to the machine.

2. Check the port hole and make sure it's big enough for drainage. If not I'll be either bashing it or drilling it out to make it bigger.

3. Reset the machine by powering off the breaker for a few minutes. Turning the power off at the wall doesn't work.

4. Last option would be to use the advice from Fisher & Paykel themselves and leave the door ajar for 5-7 days.

I'll let you know how I go. Anyways, hoped I've helped and good luck!

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!!
