Top right corner: it means the bad right actuator could not pull down the lid seal on that side causing a leak. The actuators are sold in pair. They are not expensive. Replace both of them when you order them in. Need to inspect the rubber seal around the top lid since if it is distorted another 60 bucks to get a new lid for replacement also. The new lid comes with the york to engage with the actuators.

Our fisher and paykel dishdrawer won't wash. It comes up with F1 and flashing light on control panel.


the dynamo dishwashing stuff has caused foaming which reached the base of the dishdrawer unit causing the flood switch to trip. This gives F1 error.
Not sure how much foaming has occured.

Best to turn off power and take power cable out from socket. then empty the drawer using towels. pull out the bottom drawer and wait a day or so to let the foam disappear from the bottom of dishwasher (under the bottom drawer). Connect the power and see if F1 had gone. If not, you need more work. Post a comment based on the above suggestion and I will guide you further if required. Always use Finish dishwasher power only (recommended quantity) as the drawers are small and don't need much detergent.

Fisher & paykel fault "F1" is displayed on the top


hello
F1 means the flood sensor senses water at base of machine at PC board.
You need to take out bottom drawer and check for water puddle under where the drawer was.If there is water you can get the machine going again by comletely drying it out(F1WILL CLEAR),but it still means you have a leak.With bottom drawer out you can really see whats going on.Once F1 is clear you can actually run upper drawer and see if it leaks.Most likely culprit are the lid actuators.Replace all 4 . It'll run like new.Don't overload drawer .That can cause lid leak too.Also the PC board may be damaged and may start to go crazy giving fake F1 codes.$80 easy fix.
good luck

Hi, have twin drawer dishwasher which out of the blue suddenly started making a terrible noise and showed F1 on the window. Wasn't in use at the time


You have a leak in the dishwasher. The F1 alarm along with beeping sound is showing flood switch has tripped.
The inlet water hose is most likely developed a leak.

Turn the power off and disconnect water connection from under the sink.

You will have to dry the flood switch located at the base of the dishwasher housing under the bottom drawer.

I have a Fisher and Paykel DD603 which was working well however i ran through some service tests. Whilst doing so i managed to flood the unit. F1 initial came on the lower drawer, then both drawers. Now...


The power filter board at the base of the dishwasher has gone faulty or you may have dislocated a connector on the filter board at the base of the dishwasher. This is the same board that has the flood switch on it.

The connector provides power to the drawers. If this is not the case then the filter board itself will have gone faulty with the water falling on it.

This part can be got from this site. The worst scenario is that you ran the heater on the lower drawer with no water causing the heater fuse to blow. This cuts the power to the drawer controller. This is very expensive to replace as the fuse is integral to the heater. Unfortunately you will not will be able to get rid of the F1 on top drawer until the power to bottom controller is restored.

The reason water spilt out is because you did not have the lid seal on when you ran the wash pump.
Make sure the mains plug is taken out when working on the dishwasher.

Fisher Pakel dish drawer sends F1 alarm flashing. It usually happens when there is a drop or change in water pressure. Have had 3 repairs on this disappointing product. Only repair person for Fisher...


F1 is a flood fault ir happens when the machine detects water on the base of the unit, to clear this fault you can remove the bottom draw and use a towel to clean up the water this should clear the fault, But usually there is only water on the base if the lid is not closing properly, this can happen due to you putting long utensils in and the lid cannot pull down or you have faulty lid actuators witch is probably the case and they wont pull the lid down correctly, So if the lid wont come down properly water splashes over the top and floods the base. :)

How to shut off dishwasher? F1 is flashing on control panel.


Hi now F1 mean that your machine has triggered the flood alarm. there are two reasons this happens-- 1st-- there is a leak on one or both of your drawers. they leak because you might have a hole in one of the hoses or your lid is not shutting properly etc. the 2nd reason is that some water or soap suds escaped from the overflow. now i would like you to turn the machine off at the wall and leave it off for a couple of days to dry it out. then turn it on and use the lower drawer for one cycle. if it does not go F1 then try the top drawer for one cycle and see how it goes. if it continues to flash F1 then reply back for further help. good luck.

Dishwasher keeps flashing F1


F1 on your dishwasher is the fault code for leaking inside the machine. the water has caused the flood switch to activate. have you put any detergent rather than your normal dishwasher detergent into the machine? if you have, the water probably leaked out of your overflow, if not, then you have a leak on the top drawer or bottom drawer. the easiest way to check is to leave the machine off for a couple of days until it drys then turn on the bottom drawer to go thru a cycle.if the F1 comes up again then the problem is on your bottom drawer. if F1 does not come up then try the top drawer. please reply if you require further help.

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!!
