Theres a small filter attached to the hose that connects into the dishwasher. It could be clogged. Clean it out, usually its just muck from the old water.
Thats what happened to us. no wonder no water was going through. and EI was flashing each time water tried to go into the dishwasher.

The only parts that usually leak are the motor shaft seal or the fill valve connector. The fill valve seal is usually lower than the motor, try putting in a small amount of water manually and increasing the level until the leak shows up. The device that is then covered in water is the leaker

Asko D1606 won't fill, and sounds like pump is running


Hi,

This means the unit has taken on water to the base pan and will not allow you to do anything until the water is removed. Once the water is gone you will need to locate or fine why water reached the base pan to correct this problem. Most common reasons, too much subs, leaking hose, leaking drain hose behind the unit and traveled back into the unit. Without seeing the unit the cause would just be a guess. I hope this helps. If you unplug the unit allow 2-3 days to dry out, this may allow you to run the unit and locate the original cause of your leak. good luck

Is it possible for the homeowner to fix a Samsung dishwasher that has the "heavy" light blinking and will not run? The manual says it is a leakage problem but no leakage is detected.


You are correct, the HEAVY light blinking indicates a leakage problem. Remember that the Samsung DW's (dishwashers) have a base that holds the water so it doesn't run out on your floor. You will have to pull your DW out so you can remove the right-side metal panel. Pull the insulation up so you can look inside. You will see the floor of the plastic base has a low spot in it, and the water sensor is located over that area. That area must be completely dry (1/8" of water will trigger the error). Once you sop up and dry all the water there, you can start up the dishwasher and watch for leaks. The most common places are the drain pump (also visible on the right-hand side) or the drain hose. And sometimes, there is no leak, but water got in there because you used too much detergent (or the wrong detergent), and it caused it to overflow into the base.

Flood switch 920 model


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.

My Blomberg dishwasher wont stop drain cycle


A common cause of this condition results from water in the base pan. This may result from a leak in the dishwasher or the drain hose (to the sink drain) backing up. First check the base pan (the very bottom assembly that all other components are mounted within) for any moisture - this can be difficult as there are only narrow openings between the tank and the base pan; a mirror can help or you might have to pull the unit out from the cabinet to access the sides. If there is moisture in the pan this problem must be corrected as the unit is just trying to protect against water damage from a leak. If the base pan assembly is dry, look at the float assembly (behind the water fill valve) as insects or rodents can sometimes interfere with the proper operation of this sensor. That causes the control to think there is a water leak. When this fault occurs everything is turned off and the drain pump runs continuously to eliminate any water from inside the dishwasher.

The error code is Thermistor/when/thermistor module failed


Hello patbauns - Typically the turbidity sensor, or thermistor, is located in the base of the unit. If water is leaking from the door, it is possible that water has made its way into the base of the unit and potentially shorted the thermistor. At this point, I would strongly recommend consulting a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause. You can often locate a qualified service provider through the manufacturer website.

Fault code f1


This could mean a lot of things depending on what the last state of the dishwasher is. For a double dishdrawer unit it could mean the power to the top unit has blown. But more commonly there is a water leak causing the flood switch at the base of the dishwasher housing to trip. The leak could be due to damaged lid seal, cracked hose or using very strong detergent which causes foaming. Assuming the power to both the drawers is ok. Let us work on the flooding problem. Remove power to the dishwasher (take power chord out). Extend the lower drawer out and use towels to mop up the base (under the drawer, hard to get to). Then take a hair dryer and run it inside. Give it an hour or so to fully dry and connect power and try again. Good luck.

Dishwasher won't power on- no lights. My husband just cleaned out the appliance- could he have knocked something loose?


Hello, welcome to Fixya. When you state your "husband just cleaned out the appliance" what do mean exactly. I would suspect a poor line connection at the junction box where the power enters the dishwasher, or a broken wire in the door panel at the point it bends as the door opens & closes is common...based on what you've described. Let me know by posting a reply what you find and what you meant. **Make sure the breaker is OFF before attempting any repairs** I'll try and assist you through a diagnosis and repair if need be. Good luck macmarkus :)

Hi Both drawers show error F1 flashing beeping with rinse light on and both pumps run after power is applied to machine


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!!

Leaking dishwasher


Sorry about the delay in time in getting back to your problem if not already resolved heres what you can try. Remove the bottom panel and run through a load, to see exactly where leak is coming from, most common place for leak is through the heater hold down brass nuts. They crack and need to be replaced
