F1 and beeping


F1 means the drawer lid is not closing properly - (lid seal leaking) which caused water to splash out when you started the wash cycle. The flood circuit on base of dishwasher housing (under the bottom drawer) has tripped. You will have to find the source of leakage and also dry the base of dishwasher housing. Make sure the dishwasher is unplugged form mains socket when you work in it.

Our fisher and paykel dishdrawer won't wash. It comes up with F1 and flashing light on control panel.


the dynamo dishwashing stuff has caused foaming which reached the base of the dishdrawer unit causing the flood switch to trip. This gives F1 error.
Not sure how much foaming has occured.

Best to turn off power and take power cable out from socket. then empty the drawer using towels. pull out the bottom drawer and wait a day or so to let the foam disappear from the bottom of dishwasher (under the bottom drawer). Connect the power and see if F1 had gone. If not, you need more work. Post a comment based on the above suggestion and I will guide you further if required. Always use Finish dishwasher power only (recommended quantity) as the drawers are small and don't need much detergent.

3 problems: 1. lower drawer is hard to close; seems to be sticking on something. 2. lower drawer retains water (2 inches) after completing a cycle. 3. F1 fault code on both drawers with alert...


ok where to start, first thing the bottom draw is hard to close because they use 2 little motors on either side to pull a lid with a seal on it down on top of each draw when u start it to keep the water in, if its hard to close the motors are damaged and arnt lifting the lid back up when the cycle finishes making it hard to open and shut, now the F1 fault means the filter circuit board in the base of the machine has been activated basically a flood sensor (and controls minor components ie lid actuators), the unit should beep and flash and go spaztic and you should hear the drain pump come on continuously til u turn it off at the wall thats its way of trying to stop a leak by removing any water it can but will not actually remove the water from the base where the switch is, you will probably find it will work now as the water will have dried and stopped triggering the switch but wont stay like that for long, that machine has major issues its leaking bad from somewhere and id say it leaked onto the lid motors and fried em, the parts you will most probably have to replace is the filter board in the base, both bottom draw lid actuators (small motors), probably the bottom draw lid if you damaged the seal pulling the draw in and out and whatever is leaking and if any other componets where damaged by water, so if its outta warranty id go buy a new 1 with 5 year extended warranty

Lights come on with f1 spanner sign flashing and bleeping


There is a leak causing the bottom housing wet so the floor sensor triggers. Dry out the bottom housing F1 will be disappear. However if the leak is not fix, the sam problem will happen again. The leak is from improperly being sealed between the top lid down against the top edge of the tube during operating.

Can anyone help me with my fisher and paykel DD603 the top draw is showing F1. fault 1. thanks


When F1 is showing up then there is a leak. The leak is causing by the top lid seal not close down tightly to the opening tube surface groove. Pull out the tube, put in tower in the bottom housing accessing from the left side. Only this side you can have room to put your hand in drying out the bottom. Do the same thing with the bottom drawer since the floor sensor is at the bottom and when it detects water then there is some water at the bottom housing of lower tube also. After Drying it out you can use You can use the lower tube wile ordering parts for the upper tube. Need to order 2 upper actuators and a lid seal with YOKE, if you want to do it yourself. Otherwise, have a F&P serviceman come in and diagnose the problem, not any handyman since the F&P dishwasher is not like others.

F1 error code on both dishwasher drawers.


Unit is in flood protection mode (caused by leak), can be cleared by removing bottom draw and drying the residual water around and under the Rfi/flood sensor board. This problem is usually caused by iether the support that suspends the wiring and hoses behind the draw and tucks them out of the way when you open and close it snapping and jamming between the tub and the lid or the actuators that close the lid wearing out. Both parts on both draws can (and should) be replaced even if it is only one that has caused the fault as they are all problematic. Replacement parts have been modified to be alot more reliable and will need to be retrofitted. Unless the unit is of the later issue which already has these parts fitted from factory, (you can tell if it has by the link supports being a pivoting stainless steel type instead of white plastic, and the lid motors being black instead of a creamy colour) in which case you have probably stacked something too high which stopped the lid from closing properly causing the leak and you have already solved this by drying the base! Phew!
Always remember to unplug you appliance if you are having a tinker.

Hope this helps

Deskjet 5650 broken door latch


I have seen this problem with this series of printer. (all the ones shaped like this ie. 5150) The lid will not close all the way on the right side (this is where the lid triggers the door open/close sensor flag). Somehow the sensor flag gets out of alignment over time where the top can't close properly to trigger it. The simplest solution is take something and wedge it where the tab from the lid would come down and make contact with this sensor flag. Print with the lid open or set the lid down on whatever you use to trigger the sensor flag. Hint: when testing and problem solving in house, I use a small piece of paper folded up several times to trigger door open/closed sensors that way I can watch the printing process and diagnose problems.

F1 is a flood code meaning excessive amounts of water have collected on the bottom catch basin. If a flood condition is detected, both draws will activate the drain motors and flash F1. Remove the bottom drawer and dry the catch basin.
There are three possible scenarios; 1. Defective lid motor(s)...Each drawer has two lid motors that pull the lid tight to the drawer when the cycle is started. (this was very common on early models) 2. Something too tall was placed in the drawer preventing the lid from closing completely. OR 3. (only seen this once) the drain hose developed a crack causing water to leak only when draining. Hope this helps....

Dish drawer leaks


The f1 is a flood error. There is a sensor in the bottom reading water. You have to dry it out before you can do anything or the drain pump will just keep running. Check the lid of the drawer you where using to see if anything may have been holding it up or if the seal is torn. If that looks ok you will have to check the lid actuators to see if one is not working. I would replace both right and left if one is out.
