I wish to remove the entire unit from the cove to repair the water damage to the floor tiles. Both drawers can not be disconnected from the body of the unit, due to the hoses and elec cables.
What is the best way to remove the unit?
I removed all internal pieces from the drawers to make them as light as possible. Then removed the securing screws, 2 each side at lower drawers. (These secure the unit in position in its cove. Slide out bottom drawer and loosen height adjust screws each corner to lower unit and then slide out. I taped the drawers closed so they wouldn't open as I moved it. I lifted the front and put a heavy rag under the front legs which helped me draw it out. It helps if you have a second pair of hands. As you edge it out, ensure power and water supply hoses are clear of any obstructions. it's not that heavy just unwieldy. Chers, Craig from OZ.

F1 is flood error. basically water has arrived at the bottom board. you can unplug the dishdrawer, remove the bottom drawer and dry the board at the bottom, maybe with a hair dryer carefully. this will reset the fault, but this is a fault that may appear again. replace the actuators that close the lid of the drawer that is leaking (look for signs of water running our of one of the drawers).
Not sure if you have managed to fix the F1 problem with your dishdrawer. This is a common problem and occurs mainly due to water leaking into the base of the dishdrawer under the bottom drawer.
But if it is occuring only in one drawer then the power filter at the base of dishdrawer is faulty and needs replacement.
Otherwise make sure the mains power to dishdrawer is turned off. Pull out the bottom drawer and stack in some towels behind it if you can to remove the moisture sitting on the base. The flood switch is located there. Then take a hair dryer and run it down behind the drawer to dry things. Push drawer back and turn power back on. Now if you cannot reach the back of the drawer then you will have to pull the drawer out from its rail. Refer the installation manual for this. See link page 7.
is this dishwasher a dishdrawer unit or is it a freestanding unit. if it is a freestanding unit it has a pressure switch. if it is a dishdrawer it relies on how many amps it takes to turn pump. hope this helps. what is the problem with your unit? please reply 4 more help.
By no power you may be implying there is no display etc and the swithces are not working. Most likely the controller of the top drawer has had it. The controller is mounted on the front of the drawer behind the door panel. Hope things are better than that.
This is very rare in any dishwasher. I use to repair most all dishwahers. First check your door seal for any cracks, cuts or splits. The water inside is under great pressure and can push out from the top of the door if that is is weak, flat, or has anykind of cut or crack. If the leak indeed is coming from the top then you will need to get someone to help you pull out unit and check top for cracks or splits. This entire housing is plastic and may have come with crack. If your washer has a hose at the top, then check it good. While its out from under the counter run it and watch to see if you can tell where leak is coming from. I may have missed something. Remember, always unplug this from wall outlet or turn off breaker if you are indeed moving it in or out. Good luck.
you have to remove the bottom drawer and remove the water from the base.theres two push in tabs on the bottom sides dd603 or if its a dd602/601 theres plugs that pull out remove them and the front panel the drawer will lift out far enough to get access.but you may find its leaking.hope this helps.
