Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher
My child accidentally put regular dishwashing liquid in dishwasher rather than dishwasher powder. Excessive foam was produced and the machine's warning alarm sounded, F1 "wrench" symbol showed and washer tried to keep going but then stopped. Poured water into drawer to disperse foam but no chageTried to work it again over the next few days but no change:alarm still sounding and trying to work.
I am assuming this F1 error is coming in only one drawer and that you are able to run the second drawer as normal.
In the case of your dishwasher the F1 error occured because the foam would have overflowed over the drawer top into the base of the unit. This would have triggered a flood switch which is there to protect water damage to the dishwasher. You can either wait a few more days until the base of the dishwasher drawer unit dries up or you can dry it yourself.
To dry the base, extend the drawer as far out as possible (turn mains power off first). The use a few towels and push them on to the base. Pull the towels out and dry the base especially the centre of it with a hair dryer.
The F1 should disappear once you put power back on .
Hope this helps. You have a very helful child who sets the dishwasher up. I have to keep pushing my children to even empty it.
