The f1 is the flood sensor....a leak has accured....either a dish to larger or lid motor has failed. will need to remove bottom drawer and soak up water and then let air dry for a day or two....turn off the breaker this will keep it from beeping and running the pumps....after drying unit will run, but need to watch the dishes you put in drawers.

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

Have an f1 error that comes up , says it is a flood switch doesn t seem to be any water in the area around the dishwasher. Any ideas?


The flood switch is at the base of the dishwasher housing under the bottom drawer.

Do you have the F1 fault displayed in both drawers? If so, or if you have single drawer, then turn power off and take the bottom drawer out. Dry the base with towels and use hair dryer on the small circuit board at the base.

Put everything back and turn power back on. The source of leak could be lid seal, kink in hose or ruptured hose.

If you have 2 drawer unit and the F1 error is in top drawer only then the bottom drawer has lost power. Could be due to thermal fuse blown on heater plate.

Hope this helps find the problem.

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.

We have a 23" Fisher&Paykel dishwasher and got


The F1 error coming on top drawer when operating bottom drawer is due to the thermal fuse blowing up on the bottom drawer and shutting controller power.

The thermal fuse could have blown either as a normal component failure or heater over heated due to thermostat failure. In any case this can be repaired by replacing the whole heater assembly as all the parts are integrated.

This is at the underside of the drawer and will need a technician to replace unless you are very familiar with repairing electronic dishwashers. The part look like this.

The way you have described the onset of the F1 error is not due to flood switch. You can confirm that the lights on the bottom drawer are out even though the top drawer is showing F1 and beeping.

If problem was flood switch then both drawers would show F1.

Disherwasher double drawer has a F1 fault have turned off power and back on again and has stopped beeping but faultF1 and spanner logo still showing ,help please


I am assuming the F1 fault is showing on both the drawers.
This is normally due to flood switch at base of dishwasher housing getting set.

This is due to water leakage from the drawers into the base. To clear it you need to turn power off. Take out the bottom drawer and dry the base of housing with towels and hair dryer. The flood switch is mounted on power board at the base.

Put drawer back and turn the power on. The drawer removal is done by taking out 2 plastic plugs one on each side of drawer and taking front cover off. Then pull drawer out and unclamp from rails. Pull out carefully without damaging houses and wiring a the back. Put back in reverse.

Dishwasher showing wrench symbol after using dishwashing liquid


I am assuming this F1 error is coming in only one drawer and that you are able to run the second drawer as normal.

In the case of your dishwasher the F1 error occured because the foam would have overflowed over the drawer top into the base of the unit. This would have triggered a flood switch which is there to protect water damage to the dishwasher. You can either wait a few more days until the base of the dishwasher drawer unit dries up or you can dry it yourself.

To dry the base, extend the drawer as far out as possible (turn mains power off first). The use a few towels and push them on to the base. Pull the towels out and dry the base especially the centre of it with a hair dryer.

The F1 should disappear once you put power back on .

Hope this helps. You have a very helful child who sets the dishwasher up. I have to keep pushing my children to even empty it.

F1 fault


Hi . F1 means your machine has triggered the flood alarm. either you have a leak on one of your drawers or water or soap suds has escaped throe the overflow. now the 1st thing to do is turn your machine off at the wall. then leave it for a couple of days to let it dry out. then turn it on and try the lower drawer throe a cycle,if it doesn't go to F1 then try the top drawer. if it doesn't go to F1 then it might be fixed.if it does go to F1 on any drawer then please reply and tell me which drawer it is and i can help you further.

F1 in F&P 2 drawer dishwasher


You will need to be a bit more specific when you say "no flood".

Are you having this F1 fault in one or both drawers?

What did the engineer do when he was there last time?

Does the F1 code flash with beeps?

What happens when you turn the mains power off and on after a short delay?

Please provide the actual model number of your fisher and paykel 2 drawer dishwasher.
