Question about Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers

2 Answers

Fisher Paykel Double Drawer DD601v2. Half way thru a cycle the alarm went on both drawers even though the top one was not inuse or switched on. The error on both drawers is F1. If we push the power button on both after a few seconds they both start up making a whirring noise and both drawers flashing. We have to unplug the machine to stop the irritation. What is wrong and how can we mere mortals fix it ?

    OK Silverdragon



    The manual managed to diagnose the prroblem thus:

    "Machine may be

    syphoning and has

    topped up too

    many times

    Check non-return

    valve and drain

    hose height"



    I need to know how to effect a DIY solution I have no idea how to check the non return valve or even where it is ! What does drain the hose height mean and what does "topped too many timres" mean?

Hi,

The F1 error means that the sensor that is located in the pan at the bottom of the machine has sensed water.

It does not want either machine to run with a leak so it will shut down the operation of both drawers.

First thing to check is if there is water under there or not. If you open the bottom drawer all the way you should be able to peek behind the back of it and see the 'floor' of the dishwasher. The sensor is near the back under a plastic cover.

If you do not see water the sensor board has failed. It is not too hard to replace but takes a bit of time and patience.

If you do see water then the hunt begins, you will have to find the source, it could be the lid seal or one of the hoses, but since the top drawer was running that would be the place to start. Let me know how far you feel comfortable in taking this and I will walk you through what I know.

The likely reason for top drawer not starting wash program when you press start button is the drawer home sensor is either faulty or the drawer is misaligned. This means controller thinks the drawer is open and does not start the cycle.

F2 code on Fisher Paykel dishwasher


The problem is linked to rotor operation during discharge cycle. By replacing the rotor with bottom will only address part of the problem. There is very likely some obstruction in the pump cavity. This is the small channel connecting the drain sump and the pump cavity. Grab a thin but rigid wire and clear this channel. Usually a bone chip or some seed.
Also confirm if the top rotor worked ok when you moved it to the bottom drawer.

We have a 23" Fisher&Paykel dishwasher and got


The F1 error coming on top drawer when operating bottom drawer is due to the thermal fuse blowing up on the bottom drawer and shutting controller power.

The thermal fuse could have blown either as a normal component failure or heater over heated due to thermostat failure. In any case this can be repaired by replacing the whole heater assembly as all the parts are integrated.

This is at the underside of the drawer and will need a technician to replace unless you are very familiar with repairing electronic dishwashers. The part look like this.

The way you have described the onset of the F1 error is not due to flood switch. You can confirm that the lights on the bottom drawer are out even though the top drawer is showing F1 and beeping.

If problem was flood switch then both drawers would show F1.

The dishwasher top drawer is leaking all over the floor during the cycle. When the top drawer is running, It fills up the the bottom of bottom drawer with water also and then neither drawer drains...


Fisher and Paykel design a air gap kit to prevent the water back flowing to the other while one is running. it really works and worth of your money. You need to change the lid seal and a pair of actuators from the top drawer. Because of the leak then the floor switch activated not allowing a complete cycle. Need to dry out the wetness from the bottom housing of both top and lower drawers by pulling the tubes out and accessing from the left side with small tower until it completely dry. Here is a link to buy air gap kit http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/product/WT50/WT50-Dual-Air-Gap-Kit/

Fisher paykel DD603 top drawer starts cycle then stops and beeps and doesn't go thru cycle


When it stops and beeps can you tell me all lights that are on when you open the drawer cheers. also check to see if the water in the tub is hot if not you have a heating issue. either a faulty element or Mtr Controller module. try swapping the Mtr Controller module (computer board) from the top drawer to the bottom drawer and see if that moves the fault. cheers

Need Fisher Paykel DD603 SS-USA repair manual


Downloaded operator manual from fisherpaykel.com. This is not the repair manual I sought.
I was able to fix problem of top lid not clearing drawer by removing drawer, lubricating rubber gaskets, slides, and hoses with Armor All, then reassembling and cycling the timer at 12 minutes.
The lid then opened fully and did not hang up.
