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)

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.

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!!
