Why does a fisher and paykel DD-603 randomly gives f1 code even when not in use


Fault code F1 can come from a number of different sources and can remain on as long as the machine has power (does not need to be operating). Once a fault is repaired it can be cleared by pressing the Power button. If the fault is still present then it will not
clear. The service manual says: The faults are displayed in the LCD as one of 5 F (fatal) faults or 1 U (user) fault along with the symbol of a spanner. A fatal fault will usually require the assistance of a qualified service person...

Fault Code Description:
Fault Code: F1
LED Display: Rinse LED
Fault: The flood switch has been activated for more than six seconds

_ Damage to the fill or drain hoses
_ Heater plate damage (chipped enamel)
_ Seals/O Rings (pinched, contaminated or poor join)
_ Dispenser (seal, diverter valve or weld leak)
_ Lid area (lid motors not functioning correctly, lid off yoke or foreign object interfering with lid seal)

    4.Question: Are the lid actuators functioning correctly? Yes: Go to Question 5. No: Check the lid actuators are assembled correctly on the slides and yokes. Check the plugs on the RFI board and the terminals on the lid motors. If the lid actuators look slow replace them.
    5.Question: Is the water level in the tub high? Yes: Go to Question 6. No: Go to Question 8
    6.Question: Is the water inlet valve leaking? Yes: Replace inlet valve. No: Go to Question 7
    7.Question: Is the DishDrawer priming correctly? Yes: Go to Question 12. Go to Question 8

    10.Question: Is water leaking from a split inlet or drain hose? Yes: Replace split inlet or drain hose. No: Go to Question 11
    11.Question: Is water leaking around the heater plate 'O' rings? Yes: Replace or refit 'O' rings. No: Go to Question 12
    12.Question: Is the drain hose blocked? Yes: Clear drain hose of blockage. No:Go to Question 13
    13.Question: Is there condensation or foreign matter around the flood switch PCB? Yes: Clear flood sensor of condensation or foreign matter. No: Go to Question 14

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.

How to reset the flood switch on a fisher & paykel


Hi - unfortunately my good friend it cannot be reset as one would like quite easily anyhow... water has found its way to the base of the drwaers and have activated the flooding switch - one could pull it apart to dry it - tip the water out from the base but if the leaks not repaired you will have the same problem later and will be on-going.

Fill Fault appears during wash cycle.


Is the filter in the hose where it screws onto the tap clean?, if this is okay then most likely the valve.

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!!

I have a fisher paykel soft touch dishwasher about 10 years old. The F1 message came on and we have taken out the inside filters and cleaned enitirely., Was working fine until it came on by itself during...


The flood sensor is located below the bottom drawer. If you take the bottom drawer out and there is water in the pan then the flood switch is probably tripped. Soak up the water with a towel and apply a hair dryer towards the rear left corner of the cabinet. The flood switch is part of the Mains Filter control board and should not be messed with (even with the dishwasher unplugged)... There is an underlying problem that caused the F1 fault and you should have a technician look at it.

The dishwasher was full of soap suds but most of the water drain


Suds? If you use dishwashing detergent you shouldn't get suds. If a small amount of sink type dish soap is left on a dish before loading it into the dishwasher this can happen. I would use several rinse and drain cycles with the racks and dishes removed until the suds are gone.

Never use any type of liquid dish soap made for sinks. The same thing that makes suds in the sink will make even more in the dish washer.

Hope this helps!

Oh No


ANTI-FLOODING CONTROL SYSTEM ALARM [A L 4] Leds [LD9] + [LD10] This control system is operative during the washing phases only, and not in the water fill phases, in which case is it connected to the safety device (see paragraph 7.4.1 ?Water Fill Time-out?).  A float-actioned mechanical sensor positioned on the bottom of the appliance trips a microswitch which is connected in series to the fill solenoid, thus disconnecting the solenoid.  Intervention of the sensor is detected by the electronic control board, which actions the drain pump for 1 minute, after which an alarm condition is generated. Possible causes: a. Water leakage from the tub/sump seal b. Water leakage from the various couplings (motor, OR on the duct to the upper spray arm, etc.) c. Floating sensor jammed mechanically/microswitch faulty

Fisher and paykel DD-603 dish drawer


Hi there, If you have had an F1 you need to dry out the product in order to reset the flood switch. This is a simple process as follows: 1. Ensure product is disconnect from wall so that it has no power. 2. Open the bottom drawer and put your hand in through the gap where the bottom of the bottom drawer comes out and feel the base of the cabinet that houses the drawers for water. 3. If there is water present dry it out as much as you can with paper towels or old rags. This machine is designed to drain all water to the front of the base of the cabinet away from the flood switch that sits at the back left corner of the cabinet base that the drawers are fitted into. 4. When you have base of the cabinet dry you need to ensure that the switch has not moisture on it in order for it to reset and allow you to start using the product. This can be done 2 ways: 1. leave bottom drawer open for 24-48 hours to allow natural air circulation to dry out the connection. or 2. position a hair dryer to blow air into the back left corner of the base of the cabinet and dry it out quicker. This still make take up to 6 hours as the flood switch had a protective cover over it to try to prevent F1's for small spills. 5. When the product had been dried out, important that you make sure it has, when you switch on the machine the F1 should be gone and ready to use. Please run each drawer seperately on a rinse cycle to confirm to yourself that it flooding was possibly caused by something blocking the sprayarm, or something stacked too high or something got stuck in the pump temporarily stopping it from draining effectively or the product suddsing too much from spilt rinse aide in one of the drawers. If each drawer runs successfully you should be in the all clear to start using it again. Please note though: if something blocks the spray arm that is directly linked to the pump your drawer will flood as a result. If you have something stuck in the pump peventing it from draining effectively ie a toothpick or piece of broken crockery this will cause your product to flood, but you will hear an louder than normal sound when the pump is running. And finally if you spill rinse aide in your drawer when filling it clean all spilt rinse aide to prevent unit from over sudsing when running. Regards KAR-Ltd
