Pull the unit out and tip it carefully to one side. (put some rag down first to mop up the water) then stand the unit back up.
Make sure you can see the back of the unit. put some tissue paper behind the plastic pipe that runs up the back centre of the machine. Turn the unit on and put into cycle. after a few minutes carefully remove the paper if its wet (even a little) the chances are the star shaped lock nut inside is loose or the pipe is damaged. A replacement is readily available and should cost less than a tenner to buy. just make sure you order a new seal as well and get a 20-25mm jubilee clip to replace the one installed.

The F2 error means the tray underneath the unit has filled with water. You will need to pull out the dishwasher (remove 2 screws at top left/right when door open that prevent tilting). Unplug and pull out dishwasher. Remove 4 screws on bottom rear panel and you will see tray underneath. Sponge out water and F2 error will reset.
However, you should not get water in this tray. There may be a faulty valve, pump or leaking pipe. Run diagnostic mode (described in user manual) to see if leak occurs during filling, draining or circulating.

Shorting out and Leaking


Hello,

Just looking at that model on the Electrolux site and the wash pump would cost $167.73,and the manifold pipe would be about $25.I dont know what they mean by feeder pipe.but you have the hose to the machine cost $34.60 or the hose down by the pump which would cost $20.50.I would be inclined to get a second opinion or source the parts yourself.The fault on these machines normally was that the rigid plastic water feed manifold pipe would tend to split on the thread just inside the corner of the unit and water would run down onto the heater and the pump.Normally after replacing the pipe and drying out the electrics the machine would be ok again.

Hope this helps.

My 6 year old Kenmore Elite DW has started leaking and has a musty smell. The dishes are clean but food residue is left on the inside door and black gunk builds up on the bottom of the dishwasher.


Use a wet/dry shop vac to clean out the strainer and drain from the inside of your machine. A musty smell is a sure sign that food particles have clogged your drain BUT can also mean that your wash/spray heads have become clogged as well. Use a pipe cleaner on the spray heads and run water over the jets to make particles flow to the big hole in the center of your wash heads, then reassemble. Don't forget to put those little plastic looking rings back exactly the way you found them or your wash heads wont turn properly. They are usually made of teflon to lubricate the spray heads.

Hello,
It sounds like the leak is coming from the water intake hose.
The water intake house is located at the bottom sump of the dishwasher. To get to it the dishwasher has to be taken out and put on its back and the floor plan needs to come off. The intake hose runs from the inlet valve under your sink and attaches to the sump with a metal keeper. Overtime the part of the hose where the keeper is cracks (Normal wear and tear). As I recall the intake hose runs approx. $129.99 from Miele direct. It comes with an inlet valve on the hose. there is no separate or substitute hose you can use.

Good luck

Water is coming out of the bottom of the dishwasher. We can't tell exactly where it is coming from and there is black goop on the inside near the gasket that was recently replaced.


The washer was probably leaking when the seal was put on. Not enough time to dry. You will have to let machine completely dry, clean the area that the seal goes to, and purchase a silcone sealent to put inside this seal. If possible, use clamps to hold the seal. Let dry couple days. day and a half.

It won't turn on and F1 is flashing


There is a leaking from the top lid causing your bottom tray wet. Need to pull out the tube to dry out the bottom tray by putting in the small tower to soak it dry. Need to unplug power cord for 24 hour to have sensor dry out. However if you don't fix the leak, as soon as it run, water leak coming down to the bottom tray will activate the wet sensor then the same problem is happening again.

Leaking water


Your waste pump might not be clearing the water from the machine. When you open the machine, is there a visible pool of water at the bottom? Check that your waste pipe isn't blocked, and check and clean the filter basket underneath the bottom dish tray.

Dishwasher f1 problem on fisher paykel


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.
