Neff dishwasher continues to pump


Firstly if you haven't already you should probably check the flood switch with a multimeter, it may move freely but the contacts inside could be fused closed. Only the flood switch activates the drain full time otherwise it is directly controlled by the board so if its not the flood switch its probably the board. If the board has shorted you will likely see evidence of burnout on it.

Flood switch activated on dishwasher DW60CSWI


Please clarify the model number. i am assuming you have a standard height single door dishwasher. It is likely the flood switch assembly itself is faulty and giving false results. Check the base of the dishwasher - item 95 in on page 10 in this manual. The microswitch could be faulty or the spring might be stuck.

Please confirm if it is a single or a double drawer.

How do you know the flood switch is activated? Do you have a display on your dishwasher and what is it showing? If no display then which lights if any on the panel are on?

Motor will not run if flood switch is activated in the fisher paykel drawer dishwwasher.

Error Code FL


The FL (Over Fill) error code indicates that the flood pressure switch is open (tripped). It is likely that you are getting the LD (Long Drain) fault code because the control detects that the flood pressure switch will not reset after running the drain pump. Your likely failure is in the flood pressure switch

Tapping on the flood pressure switch with the handle of a screw driver may reset it. Reassemble the washer and see if it will work properly. If not, then you will need to replace the flood pressure switch. The part number for the flood pressure switch is 8054767. You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the flood pressure switch is 8054767.

The flood switch has been activated on our Fisher & Paykel 2-drawer dishwasher. How do we reset the button?


Turn off the main power to the dishwasher.

I am assuming you are getting F1 error code flashing (if your drawers have LCD display) or the LEDs are flashing if you have intergrated drawers.

The flood switch is located at the base of the drawer tub. You will have to either extend the drawers out fully or take them out depending on the amount of water that would have collected at the base of the tubs. Get some towels and dry the base out. You may also need a hair dryer.

Once the flood switch dries off the drawer should work ok when you turn back the power.

The causes of the flood switch trriggering is either too much foam in detergent (use recommended detergent) or leak in water in or drain pipe.

Please remember to rate the solution if it helps or post a comment if not.

I have an f1 fault on the display of the dish drawer dd-603ss which i believe is the flood switch activation would you be able to help me reset it


Have you checked that there is no water remaining in the base of the dishwasher? There is probably a float attached to a microswitch in the base of the machine. A cup of water left in the base of the washer could be enough to trip the flood activation switch.

You could try tilting the dishwasher through 45 degrees to see if there is any water left inside the base.
