All the information that I have found about this particular problem indicates that the "F1" error is a flood or overflow alarm. It's generally caused by a clog in the drain line and/or tub not sealing properly when closed.

If this is a drawer style dishwasher there is a lid in the equipment cabinet that must seat properly on the drawer when it is closed. If you place items in the dishwasher that are too tall for the drawer lid to seat properly, it will not seal and water will splash over the sides of the tub during the wash cycle.

Another common problem is a clogged or kinked drain line. Remove the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged. Check it at BOTH ends.

The alarm is activated by a float switch in the bottom tray of the dishwasher. Look to see if this is any standing water in the bottom tray. If there is any water, or signs of wetness, the alarm will not clear until it is dried out. I found a couple of recommendations to clear the alarm. The first involved removing the dishwasher from where it is installed and tilting it at a 45 degree angle to pour any standing water out. Another method is to dry the bottom out with towels as best you can, and then use a hair dryer to dry any residual water. I hope I'm on the right track with this and I hope this solves your problem. Post back if you have any further questions.

CAUTION: UNPLUG the dishwasher or turn off the breaker BEFORE servicing inside the cabinet.

I found the problem on my F&P Nautilus dishwasher was caused by a faulty door seal allowing water to leak into the bottom of the unit where the pumps and overflow / leak sensor dit. I found this by removing the front panel from the dishwasher. The float switch (see photo) had activated. Replacing the door seal fixed the problemdishwasher f1 problem on fisher paykel - c41ee23.jpg7bad7be.jpg

    Thanks for this, I had to move my dishwasher outside while we had our floors polished, and when I moved it back in I had this error. Opened up the front, and inside was all dry, so clearly not a problem with water in the wrong areas. Found the float, and gently pushed it down a little, could feel the switch going on and off if I lifted back up. Now working perfectly. Think the moving must have shifted the float a bit, and just a little moving of it freed it up again. Thanks.

The drain in my sink was a bit blocked, in that the water in the pipe was higher than the drain tubes coming from the machine, once this was all cleaned out it has worked fine.

My F&P machine F1 problem got cleared after not operating the machine for 3 days & allowing the flood switch to dry on its own! The rubber seal needed a bit if cleaning up (I believe the water leaked from this & flooded the machine ). Now its working fine!! San.

Well instead of going through all the wires i turned the tap off and electric on and pressed off on the washer (O) screen was black so i closed and it starts (if there is water in there) and it will drain all the water after that i started it and it was working. i lator found its the ballon the stops the door from opening was blocked so it cant seal by a cup/big plate so it cant drain it so now i never let it go near 3cm near edge so it can seal and is problem free since (6 months)

U1 code 920 model filter is clean no hoses bent or kinked ? can it be fixed ? hans


The U1 code means:-
Dishwasher attempted to fill to correct level but failed. = Water tap not turned on. Turn the water tap on.
Too much foam. Rinse aid setting too high or has been spilled. = Turn the rinse aid dial to a
lower setting or wipe the spill. Incorrect detergent. Ensure that you use a detergent that is intended for a domestic automatic dishwasher. Egg yolk. Place an extra tablespoon of detergent in the dishwasher door for pre-rinsing.
Too much detergent. Use the recommended quantity of detergent
Wash pump faulty. Call your Fisher & Paykel Dealer or Authorised Service Centre.
Dishwasher not draining. = Drain hose bent or kinked. Straighten drain hose so water can flow through. Strainer blocked. Empty out the strainer and ensure the filter plate is clear of food
particles..

My fisher & paykel dishwasher - nemo model - won't stop beeping. There are no lights flashing and not even turning it off at the wall will help... What is the likely problem?


please confirm which model do you have 820 or 920.

I am assuming this is the one without display.

most likely cause is the flood switch at the base has actuated. This means water has leaked through the door gasket.

One way to check is to turn power off and draw the dishwasher out from under the sink. May have to disconnect the electric and water inlet.

Tilt the dishwasher to one side and wait for about 1 hour. Try the power on and see if the beep goes away.
You can access this switch by opening the chassis. It is item 5 on page 10 of this parts catalog. You can use a hair dryer to dry the circuit board.

If no help then you have to call the technician as there is not much service information readily available for this model.

See this user manual if you do not have one.
