When you press the coffee button , and the top and bottom lights are flashing, that means the grinder is either jammed or out of order. If the machine is less than 2 years old, the service center will replaced it under warranty.

Have a rental property with F&P two draw dishwasher aprox five years old. Apparently bottom draw is holding water - what do you think?


Could be many reasons for the bottom drawer to hold water.

It could be leaky top drawer causing water to collect in the bottom drawer. Check if water collects when top drawer is running.

It could be blockage in the bottom drawer drainage which can be fixed by cleaning the filter plate and the drain sump. If the drain pump is not running during drain cycle then you will have to replace the drain pump motor.

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.

I am assuming one of the drawers has caused water to leak into the base of the dishwasher cabinet

Disconnect the mains power connection.

Extend the bottom drawer out as much as possible. Use towels and hair dryer to dry out the base - especially the flood switch that is located towards the back middle of the base.

Leave it open until the moisture disappears. Reconnect mains power and try to start one of the drawers.

The water can leak due to kink or crack in hoses or simply too much foam from detergent.

Hope this fixes the problem - hopefully nothing to replace.

One drawer leaks can cause this problem. If you don't fix it. One day it will turn on the pumps from both units without any one touching them since the floor sensor at the bottom housing detects water and it will run for ever until you unplug the power cord. This dishwasher is a state of art in design and replacing parts is very simple once a person has enough understanding of its mechanism. If the tech fail to find the problem then he is not qualified to touch this dishwasher. When there is a leak, it is a problem with the lid seal from the top not closing down tightly so during the wash cycle, water shoot up and leaks through the top opening then collecting on the bottom housing of each unit. Let say the top draw is leak, so the bottom housing of top draw if full of water then it overflows to the bottom drawer unit then the floor. Here is the idea of how it happens. The top lid is pulled down by 2 actuators from both sides at first start. That is why you can hear the motor noise turning on at the beginning of the wash cycle. That is the noise from the actuators. If the actuators are bad. only one side works then the lid can not be sealed properly there is a leak. If bothe of actuators are week the gear worn out so they can not hold the lid down during the wash cycle then it can cause a leak. You can pull each tube out and access from the left side at the bottom to touch the bottom housing to fell the wetness. Put in tower to dry them out. If there is a weteness from the bottom housing upper tube it doesn't mean the bottom drawers is leaking. It is wet just because the top is leaking. However you have to dry the bottom in order to continue use the bottom dryer. If you ignore my advice then your circuit board at the bottom housing of lower drawer will be damaged and it is not cheap. With the information that I provided you can interview a tech claiming know about the this type of dishwasher before letting him coming into your house. Good luck.

F1 flood keeps going off all the time on the top drawer and every other time on the bottom drawer. About 3 years old. No hose leaks that we can see, not flood switch any ideas?


About 3 years either the lid seal is going bad or the actuators had a problem. These things prevent the seal from properly seal on the top of your tube then causing a leak to the bottom hosing of each drawer. If you pull out the tube you can see the bottom housing is wet. Based on what you described, I can see the bottom is on the top drawer. When it leaks so much, part of the leak is coming down to the lower one. The flood at the lower bottom housing is less then from the the upper one.
