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.

The Machine is flashing a F1 fault code the manual say's to turn off power and water supply and ring service centre. Is there a code sequence to get it back to start.


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.

Dishwasher keeps flashing F1


F1 on your dishwasher is the fault code for leaking inside the machine. the water has caused the flood switch to activate. have you put any detergent rather than your normal dishwasher detergent into the machine? if you have, the water probably leaked out of your overflow, if not, then you have a leak on the top drawer or bottom drawer. the easiest way to check is to leave the machine off for a couple of days until it drys then turn on the bottom drawer to go thru a cycle.if the F1 comes up again then the problem is on your bottom drawer. if F1 does not come up then try the top drawer. please reply if you require further help.

I have a single draw Fisher and Paykel dishwasher. I stupidly put washing up liquid in the dishwasher which resulted in a F1 problem. Water started leaking under the draw and onto my floor. I turned the...


ok , F1 means your flood switch has activated, which is underneath the drawer. now they show the F1 fault because of 2 reasons.1st there is still water underneath drawer causing switch to activate. 2nd your activator board which has the flood switch attached is faulty reading your posting it has been about 15 days since the fault happened. the water should have dryed around switch by now. if there is power to the unit and it is still coming up with F1 fault then possibly you have damaged the activator board. please reply and tell me if you have power on or off at the present time. to fix the problem it is alittle bit involved but i can guide you thru it when you reply .good luck

F1 fault


F1 code would mean the flood switch is activated.

In Nautilus people have found this to be caused by a faulty door seal.
Water seeps under the diswasher base panel and finally the flood switch (a protection) activates.

The solution is to replace door seal after drying out under the base panel.

F1 fault on a ds603


The reason for your F1 fault code in your dishwasher is due to the flood switch that has been activated in your unit. The best way to solve your problem is to turn off the water supply and power supply to your unit and call an authorised service centre. These problems cant be fixed on your own.

F1 display flashing?


Flashing wrench means a fault code has been triggered.
F1 is the fault code when flood switch at base of dishwasher cabinet turns on.

This can occur due to several reasons when moisture gets to the base of the drawer cabinet.

You will have to turn the power off and extend the drawer out as much as possible to expose the back of the cabinet. Take towels and a hair dryer to dry the base. Once the flood switch gets dry the problem will go away.

The main thing is why did the water get there. You could have a crack in the hose or simply the detergent may have caused too much foam.
