Hi,

The major reason for error code F3 is due to some issues with the Tub Seals. Please perform the following troubleshooting to resolve the error.
Remove bottom drawer you will find water has leaked and the flood switch has been activated. Remove power to unit and dry up tray with towels and hair dryer. Check drain hose and fill valve for leaks. The most common problem I have found is the tub seals. With unit back together and running pull on drawer and see if it comes out. (It should not come out) The boards may be burnt by this point. The bottom tray in the back has a plastic cover over control board, remove cover and inspect board for damage.
Thank you for contacting www.Fixya.com

Have an f1 error that comes up , says it is a flood switch doesn t seem to be any water in the area around the dishwasher. Any ideas?


The flood switch is at the base of the dishwasher housing under the bottom drawer.

Do you have the F1 fault displayed in both drawers? If so, or if you have single drawer, then turn power off and take the bottom drawer out. Dry the base with towels and use hair dryer on the small circuit board at the base.

Put everything back and turn power back on. The source of leak could be lid seal, kink in hose or ruptured hose.

If you have 2 drawer unit and the F1 error is in top drawer only then the bottom drawer has lost power. Could be due to thermal fuse blown on heater plate.

Hope this helps find the problem.

I have a single draw F&P Dishwasher and get the error F1, turned off the power and still same problem, but in the last 2 or 3 loads of washing dishes not all the water has been gone, always about 2cm...


most likely you have a leaky drain hose.
Have you checked if sink drain is clear (no back flow)
Turn dishwasher power off.
Empty all the water using a small container and towels.
Get the drawer out (remove front cover first by taking the side pins out and carefully lifting it).

Check behind to see water lying on the floor of dishwasher housing. If leaky drain hose you will have to replace it.
Dry the base of the dishwasher (towels and dryer) otherwise F1 will not go away.

F1 fault


Hi . F1 means your machine has triggered the flood alarm. either you have a leak on one of your drawers or water or soap suds has escaped throe the overflow. now the 1st thing to do is turn your machine off at the wall. then leave it for a couple of days to let it dry out. then turn it on and try the lower drawer throe a cycle,if it doesn't go to F1 then try the top drawer. if it doesn't go to F1 then it might be fixed.if it does go to F1 on any drawer then please reply and tell me which drawer it is and i can help you further.

Son put normal dish washing liquid in top draw!


ok, the machine flooded and the water has leaked into the bottom of the machine, 1st turn off the machine at the power point. 2nd- open the top drawer and remove the suds from it. 3rd. open the bottom drawer and look under it to the bottom of the cabinet . that is where the water will be. use a torch if you have to. now you need to dry the water up. you can do this with a hair dryer or a fan heater. the reason the machine is flashing F1 is because the water has triggered the flood switch and you need to dry up that water. please reply 4 more help.once dryed F1 will disappear. please make sure all the suds are removed from the top drawer. good luck

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 means that the flood sensor has been tripped. Remove the bottom draw and dry the water out. Mop the majority out and use a hair dryer to get it all nice and dry. This should clear the f1. There may be underlying issues of why the unit has leaked but see how you get on.

Have f1 fault cant get bottom draw out to check for moister build up


The reason that you are getting F1 fault might be the dishwasher drawer is flooding. The drawer not opening is perhaps due to either the keylock being activated or the controller has gone into some unkown state.

Try turning the mains water inlet water tap off and also switch off the power. Turn everthing back on and then check if you can open the drawer. If you have water inside the drawer you may need to empty it manually with a small container. If it floods again, then the solenoid that turns of the power or the water level sensor might be faulty.

Dishwasher problem


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.
