Sounds like the condense pump is bad. Replace it, or look if there is lint in it. ;)

SOURCE: Condenser on Hotpoint Aquarius dryer not collecting water

I think that I have already suggested some possible reasons for the prob you are experiencing with your dryer, but I don't think I have mentioned the fact that the pump could be fauty, you should be able to hear it running, just a thought , you never know.

SOURCE: zanussi tumble dryer does not get very hot

Hi, I take it from the description taht you have given your T/dryer is a condenser? If this is the case you could be looking at several problems? 1 it could be the large filter underneath the tumble dryer this could be blocked with fluff causing it not to condense quick enough! 2 it could be the water collection pump? Can you her it running? 3 It could be that half the heater has failed causing it not to get hot enough to dry?
Try these hopefully it should steer you in the right direction!

SOURCE: water in top drawer

I am not a repairman but have installed several duel drawer dishwashers. Most dishwashers have a check valve preventing backflow. Water under pressure will always follow the path of least resistance and in your case it is going into the upper drawer. Be sure the drain is open and flowing easily under your sink whether that be the disposal or a TEE. It may help if the drain line is elevated as high as it can go under the sink just before it reaches the drain. How often do you use the top drawer? Perhaps run a cycle on the hottest cycle without dishes to attemt to clean or force through any contaminants in the check valve through into the drain. Hope this helps, Ken

Have a rental property with F&P two draw dishwasher aprox five years old. Apparently bottom draw is holding water - what do you think?


Could be many reasons for the bottom drawer to hold water.

It could be leaky top drawer causing water to collect in the bottom drawer. Check if water collects when top drawer is running.

It could be blockage in the bottom drawer drainage which can be fixed by cleaning the filter plate and the drain sump. If the drain pump is not running during drain cycle then you will have to replace the drain pump motor.

Our Fisher & Paykel single dish drawer unit (6 months old) is leaking limited water from its base down the front of bottom drawer below the unit's base onto the kitchen floor. One inspection by a...


One drawer leaks can cause this problem. If you don't fix it. One day it will turn on the pumps from both units without any one touching them since the floor sensor at the bottom housing detects water and it will run for ever until you unplug the power cord. This dishwasher is a state of art in design and replacing parts is very simple once a person has enough understanding of its mechanism. If the tech fail to find the problem then he is not qualified to touch this dishwasher. When there is a leak, it is a problem with the lid seal from the top not closing down tightly so during the wash cycle, water shoot up and leaks through the top opening then collecting on the bottom housing of each unit. Let say the top draw is leak, so the bottom housing of top draw if full of water then it overflows to the bottom drawer unit then the floor. Here is the idea of how it happens. The top lid is pulled down by 2 actuators from both sides at first start. That is why you can hear the motor noise turning on at the beginning of the wash cycle. That is the noise from the actuators. If the actuators are bad. only one side works then the lid can not be sealed properly there is a leak. If bothe of actuators are week the gear worn out so they can not hold the lid down during the wash cycle then it can cause a leak. You can pull each tube out and access from the left side at the bottom to touch the bottom housing to fell the wetness. Put in tower to dry them out. If there is a weteness from the bottom housing upper tube it doesn't mean the bottom drawers is leaking. It is wet just because the top is leaking. However you have to dry the bottom in order to continue use the bottom dryer. If you ignore my advice then your circuit board at the bottom housing of lower drawer will be damaged and it is not cheap. With the information that I provided you can interview a tech claiming know about the this type of dishwasher before letting him coming into your house. Good luck.

Dishdrawers just started flashing F1. What do I do?


Looks like the flood switch at the base of the dishwashwer has actuated. This is likely to have been caused by moisture collecting at the base under the bottom drawer.

Try to extend out the bottom drawer as much as possible to expose the back part of the base. Turn off the power. Use towels and hair dryer to dry the base and switch on. If still not ok then you may have to take out the bottom drawer and dry out the base.

the likely causes are - too much foam in detergent, a kink or crack in the water hose or a broken actuator arm that supports the water hoses when the drawers are pulled out and in.

Hope this helps.

Top drawer stopped first with F1 and would not turn off. Now 2nd drawer is the same ,Had to turn off power to diswaher .


F1 means the flood switch is activated. This is located at the base of the housing under the bottom drawer. You will have to find if there is water collected at the base by extending out the bottom drawer. Make sure the power is turned off.

Use towels and hair dryer to dry base out. The terminals of the switch will have to dry out as well. Quicker way would be to get the bottom drawer out and fix it back after the drying operation.

Next you will have to find the source of the water collection. Cracked hoses, broken actuator link arm (that holds up the wires and hoses to allow the drawer to move in and out without getting entangled) or foaming inside the drawer due to use of incorrect detergent.

Good luck

Bottom unit does not always seal and causes water to collect in bottom pan which throw unit into f1 status. Sometimes it stays sealed and is difficult to pull drawer out. Is there a way to reset the unit...


These dishwashers are very sensitive to grime collecting around the drawer edges. Try cleaning with a damp cloth by rubbing along the top edges and the sides where the drawer door sits flush with the body.

Also trun off power at the mains and then turn back on after a short wait.

I have in indesit tumble dryer model no;-IS70C.When i hit the start button the machine cuts out right away and trips the main socket RCD in my fuse box.Sometimes the machine starts and then cuts out again...


Hiya drodger, i had the same problem with my hotpoint dryer, (same company) if this is a condenser dryer make sure the drawer is collecting the water there is a small hole at the bottom of the drawer if you have a straw poke it in and clean it out, also at the back of the dryer there is a clear plastic pipe and a black one take them both off and clean them, your problem is exactly the same as mine so you will probably have to buy a new heating element (they are a lot cheaper from ebay) they are so easy to fit just 2 clips (i did it and im not dead yet!) hopefully you will then find the dryer will work perfectly, word of advice though clean the collecting drawer out at least once a month.
Hope this helps

Indesit condensair dryer


Hi,

I have had a similar problem, my wife tried drying clothes that were too wet, causing the machine to flood. Even though she emptied the tank, the empty water light was always on!!

What I did was take the electrical plug out and tip the machine to one side, you probably will find there will be a collection of water in the base, which will leak out. Once you think you emptied it, plug it back it back in and try it.

It worked for me!

Bosch tumble dryer


I've sorted mine this morning. First, disconnect from the mains - VERY important! Pull out the metal condenser unit at the bottom, and behind it, there's a small hatch in the bottom to the reservoir. This can get gunked up with water, and is very difficult to clean - HOWEVER - I've found a really easy way of cleaning it. I've got a VAX carpet washer with a hose attachment, and I simply sucked all the water out using that. If you don't own a carpet cleaner maybe borrow one. I did this this morning, and my tumble-dryer's still running happily after an hour! It is possible to clean it out without vacuum, but it takes a LOT longer, and the vacuum of the cleaner pulls out gunk that is hard to access. Another place where gunk collects is behind that hatch right at the back - there's a tube up to the right. I pulled out quite a long chunk of lint. However, that wasn't the solution on it's own, I still had to clean out the reservoir as above.
