I have a Fisher & Paykel dw, Model DD24DCHTx7 that gave me an E1 flood error on the top drawer. I have followed great Fixya advice, but need clarification before I continue.
I have cleared the drain and the drain to sump passage, and cleaned the stainless pan and seal. Still getting E1 error. almost immediately after cycle begins. Bottom drawer is working without any problems.
I am looking at the motor but need to confirm something I read earlier in some Fixya advice. The blue and white impellers are moving together one to one, but the gray piece underneath the white impeller can be spun independently around the magnet without either impeller moving. Does this mean I need a new motor, or should I move on to check the drain and inlet lines for the leak source? Thanks for the awesome advice. I love my dishwasher!

F1 (or E1) is a "Flood" fault and means there is water in the bottom pan. This is beneath the bottom drawer. The sensor is in the left, rear corner of the base pan. Any kind of leak, including over sudsing or split hoses or or lid not down fully due to tall items in tub, can cause this. Remove the lower drawer, dry the water from the pan bottom, reinstall the lower drawer and check operation. If this error recurs you must find the leak and correct it.
Not sure what the actual model number is but usually the F1 error with Fisher and Paykel dishwasher means water has entered the flood switch located at the base. This could be due to leaky hoses or water leaking through the door or lid seal. Wait for a day or two until the water evaporates and try again. Otherwise you will have to dry out the flood switch and then try again. Location of flood switch will depend on your model. For double drawer dishwasher you will have to take the bottom drawer out from the housing and the switch is on the floor of housing. But make sure you take the mains power chord out before touching the insides of dishwasher. Will also need to find the cause of the leak. Other reason for F1 could be loss of power to top dishdrawer if you have double drawer. But in that case the top drawer will have no lights on. The power board is located on the base of housing under bottom drawer. Once again do not touch inside of dishwasher without shutting off mains power.
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.
there is no e 1 error in dd603 , maybe u1 or f1 , u can call 1800650590 nd ask hem to send the use nd care manual , or download it from fnd p website ,
If it is U1 its saying taps not turned on , more than likey u have a F1 fault which is a flood sensor error , which means u need a new mains filter board around $50 to buy
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!!
Josh, you will need to have a Tech out to look at it... F/P will not sell you parts to repair it. The F1 indicates that the flood switch has been tripped. There are many possible causes for this but probably the upper drawer link support has broken and is getting stuck between the lid and the drawer in which case you will need a new lid and link support.
Fisher-Paykel DD603 DishDrawer shows F1 fault code. The Flood Switch has been activated. I need instructions on how to re-set the flood switch. I have two drawers that are possitioned one above the other and the are both giving the error of the activated flood switch. Any advice or instruction is greatly appreciated.
From what you describe, drain water from the top drawer is getting into the bottom drawer or waste water from the disposer is backing up into the bottom drawer.
1. Each drawer has its own drain hose. Each hose should terminate at the drain point with a 'Y' adapter. 2. Inspect the drain point (under the sink where the drain pipes are) to make sure this 'Y' adapter is present. (you should see two drain hoses from the DW). If not present, then the DW drain lines are not installed properly. (Someone took a shortcut and installed the 'Y' adapter behind the DW) 3. If terminated properly, make sure the drain hoses extend upward as they leave the drain point.
It is important the drain lines are connected properly to ensure proper drainage from the DW. Consult the installation manual for complete details.
