Question about Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers
Followed reset as described in manual - doesn't do anything
From the service manual:
E7 = Detergent diverter fault
• Check harness connections
• Coil is open circuit
• Coil is short circuit
• The electronic controller has failed
The 02 part means:
• Wiring to detergent diverter valve
• Open circuit coil
If you are not happy testing electrical circuits and replacing parts yourself then you will need to contact an engineer.
Otherwise, I have a copy of the service manual if it is need, just need to find a link where I got it from.

SOURCE: error code AO1
Error message A01 means -Acqua stop operated due to a leak or overfill. Check if there is still water in the machine after it stop pumping. In case you still have water - your problem is with the pump or with a blockage drain line. If there is no water in the machin, it might be a water level sensor issue - stuck physically in the high level position or become defective. Try to reduced the water presure and leveled it up by the water entrance tap to the machine, it might solve your problem. Goog luck !!

SOURCE: f3 error showing
F3 means the Dishwasher thinks it's water temperature in the tub is over 80oC. So when the unit stops see how hot the water is. The unit has a temp sensor which is part of the element which maybe faulty, the element maybe faulty or the Motor controller module is faulty. I'd try the Motor Controller module first as replacing the element can be a tricky job if you haven't done one before. If you have a double dishdrawer you can swap over the Motor Controller modules (main computers in the front of each drawer) as the top and bottom are the same part, inturn you will prove 100% if this is the fault or not without buying a new controller.

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.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description, "clean light stays on" this is actually an error code as you may or may not know associated with the heating process. What typically happens is poor water circulation preventing the water from heating properly.
To resolve this, I'd start with the following...the wash pump area. You`ll need to follow these steps to clean it.
1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.
2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.
3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".
a ) lift to depress the rear tab, i.e.
b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.
4 ) Now you can remove the center nut...
Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out.
Below the filter you`ll find food debris, undissolved detergent etc, but also a cover with a single #10 torx head screw to remove and the cover will pull straight up and out. the arrows from left to right in the image indicate...
1) screw location
2) tab to pull up on
3) the latch you may need to twist to the left to remove the cover
Now you should see the chopper and screen assembly, it too can be clogged up pretty bad, clean it best you can...you don`t really want to remove this part.
If my explanation is not clear enough, here`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.
Once these actions have been performed you'll need to clear the error code. to do so is as follows. Press the following buttons in this sequence...
HEATED DRY - NORMAL, HEATED DRY - NORMAL, HEATED DRY - NORMAL
This diagnostic cycle may take approx. 15-20 minutes to complete. Let it proceed through to completion and you should be good to go...unless the heater itself is at fault or a wire has vibrated loose from the heater...those are steps to follow if OR when necessary.
Let me know how you make out, please keep me informed if you need further assistance or anything is unclear. Please take a moment to rate me assistance and a short testimony is appreciated as well.
Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

SOURCE: I have a two drawer
This is a flood error code. The bottom drawer needs to be removed to dry up the water. The video below explains how to do this. It's actually pretty easy.
