Are you sure of the model?? flash a U3 the following is from The FP Manual on the DD-603 Model...........

The last two faults are logged into EE memory.
The other U (user) faults have been removed. The old U2 fault, which was the tub forced open during a cycle, has
been removed completely. Instead if the tub is forced open the product simply pauses as if someone had pressed
the start/pause button. The old U3 fault, which indicated a failure to drain i.e. water left in the tub, will not show up a
fault and the DishDrawer will continue through the cycle

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.

Fischer and paykel drawer dishwasher has no power to drawer, power at outlet, was flashing F1 prior to shutting down, thanks


If you have a double drawer unit then please confirm what is happening with the other drawer. Most likely the base of the dishwasher under the bottom drawer has flooded and brought down the power with it. The power board sits under the bottom drawer. BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE DISHWASHER BEFORE SWITCHING OFF THE MAINS POWER SUPPLY TO THE DISHWASHER AS THE CIRCUIT MAY BE LIVE AND GIVE A SHOCK. You will have to take the bottom drawer out and see what is happening under it.

What does U3 mean?


U3 can mean quite a few things depending on when it occurs and which drawer it is.

It could mean Lid fault and will show up as soon as you start dishwasher.

It could mean drain problems if it occurs later in the wash cycle and there is water left behind.

It could mean the wash arm is not sitting properly if it occurs during wash cycle.

Disherwasher double drawer has a F1 fault have turned off power and back on again and has stopped beeping but faultF1 and spanner logo still showing ,help please


I am assuming the F1 fault is showing on both the drawers.
This is normally due to flood switch at base of dishwasher housing getting set.

This is due to water leakage from the drawers into the base. To clear it you need to turn power off. Take out the bottom drawer and dry the base of housing with towels and hair dryer. The flood switch is mounted on power board at the base.

Put drawer back and turn the power on. The drawer removal is done by taking out 2 plastic plugs one on each side of drawer and taking front cover off. Then pull drawer out and unclamp from rails. Pull out carefully without damaging houses and wiring a the back. Put back in reverse.

F1 flashes on my DD-603SS dishwasher, what does it mean and how can i fix it?


Do you get the F1 on both drawers or just one - which one?

The cause is flood relay turning on. This means water has got into the base of the housing under the drawer. This could be due to foaming by use of incorrect detergent or usually leak in door seal or water hoses.

Get the lower drawer out and dry the base with towels and hair dryer.

Make sure the mains power is turned off first.

Then put the drawer back and start dishwasher.

Machine powers on by itself both drawers.. with the error message


F1 can mean two things - depending on which drawer it is coming in.

It is a sign that the water is leaking from the drawers into the base of the housing and tripping the flood switch.

To fix this you will have to take the drawers out and dry out the flood switch at the base of the housing. Use towels and hair dryer. Most like the dishwasher detergent is foaming or the door seal is leaking or the outlet drain is cracked. Make sure the mains power is turned off when you are working on the dishwasher.

The other reason is if the thermal cutout is blown in the lower drawer that can cause the F1 to appear in top drawer. But if both drawers are flashing F1 then this is unlikely.

U3 error code


I believe U3 error on your model of dishwasher could also mean a couple of other things like either the drain hose has an obstruction (kink) or the inlet water pressure is not correct.

Hope this helps in finding out what could be the actual reason. T

o find the kink if any, pull the drawer out as much as possible and feel the hose. Might be better if you took the bottom drawer out from the casing and inspect the hose completely. As the problem is limited to upper drawer you do not have to worry about what is under the bottom drawer. Check the water pressure setting is same for both drawers. If so then that is not an issue as bottom drawer is working ok according to your description. See your manual for instruction on how to check the water supply pressure setting on your dishwasher.

Top drawer works but bottom drawer shows code u3 and bottom drawer started leaking water before the u3 code showed up


U3 code generally relates to drain pump blocked. This could mean the water is not able to drain out. Leaking of water is not a good sign. Shows the vacuum seal is not working.

Clean the drawer door from inside and make sure the seal lining is sitting properly. Also the filter plate and the motor cavity needs cleaning. You will need to see the user guide on how to do this.
