Switch the main power off and on after a short time. If the error does not go away then you have water collection in the base of the dishwasher under the drawer.

Take the bottom drawer out and try to use a couple of towels to dry out the base plus use a hair dryer. (make sure the power is turned off at the mains switch). This should dry out the flood switch.

Now about the reason for water collection - could be kink in drain hose, water leak from drawer seal, foaming due to incorrect detergent.

You have not mentioned if the error is occuring in both drawers or just one.

Flood switch will not reset


The lid seal is damaged and it lets water go through and collect on the flood switch which may be triggering F1.

You will have to replace the lid seal. It is item 8 on page 14 of this diagram.

Dishwasher beeping and displaying F1 on screen. HELP!!


F1 error means that the flood switch has been activated. To reset the flood switch you need to remove the bottom dish drawer to be able to access the reset buttons. To remove the drawer you press in the rectangle buttons and slide them back under the drawer, they are located right behind the front panel at the bottom of the drawer. It may help to have someone help hold the drawer for you. Once they are slid back all the way place the bottom drawer on the floor to the left side of the washer as you look at it. This will give you the access you need. Lie down on the floor so you can see in the bottom. There you will see a white coloured plastic box on each side, one is for the top drawer the other is for the bottom drawer. Make sure the power is off to the dishwasher. Place your finger underneath the box and you will feel a small pin/lever. This is attached to the magnetic flood switch and resets it when you click it one way and then the other. Once you have done this turn the machine back on before you put in the bottom drawer as if it does not work then you will need to activate it maybe a couple of times. Once the F1 alarm disappears you are good to go. Place the drawer back in the opposite way to removal. Slide one rack forward and rest the drawer on it. Then slide the other side out and it will snap lock into position.

Flood switch activated, intermittent beeping, motor will not turn off


Please confirm if it is a single or a double drawer.

How do you know the flood switch is activated? Do you have a display on your dishwasher and what is it showing? If no display then which lights if any on the panel are on?

Motor will not run if flood switch is activated in the fisher paykel drawer dishwwasher.

The flood switch has been activated on our Fisher & Paykel 2-drawer dishwasher. How do we reset the button?


Turn off the main power to the dishwasher.

I am assuming you are getting F1 error code flashing (if your drawers have LCD display) or the LEDs are flashing if you have intergrated drawers.

The flood switch is located at the base of the drawer tub. You will have to either extend the drawers out fully or take them out depending on the amount of water that would have collected at the base of the tubs. Get some towels and dry the base out. You may also need a hair dryer.

Once the flood switch dries off the drawer should work ok when you turn back the power.

The causes of the flood switch trriggering is either too much foam in detergent (use recommended detergent) or leak in water in or drain pipe.

Please remember to rate the solution if it helps or post a comment if not.

F1 fault shows flood switch activated, how to


Hello there
This is how i did mine
saved about 300 dollars
First thing I did was pull the front panel off the drawer, batch%2010-23-04%200031.jpg
Fisher Paykel DD602 dishdrawer with the front panel removed.
With that front panel off, I pulled the wire harness connectors off the main control board (lower right-hand side) to inspect for gookus. None found--my quest continued.
The next step to remove the botton drawer from the unit so I could inspect the flood switch. In order to do this, I had to remove the wire harness cover on the underside of the drawer. This is what the underside of the dishdrawer looks like with the botton cover panel removed:
batch%2010-23-04%200041.jpg
Fisher Paykel DD602 dishdrawer, looking at the underside of one of the drawers with the wire cover plate removed.
With the bottom cover off, I could unclip the wire harness, fill hose, and drain hose. Then I unclipped the linkage at the back of the drawer and lifted the drawer off the slider arms. All this to expose the flood switch, shown on the left-hand side of the bottom panel in the picture below:.
batch%2010-23-04%200051.jpg
Fisher Paykel DD602 dishdrawer with the lower drawer removed. The flood switch in mounted on the base, left hand side.
After noting the positions of the wires on the flood switch and removing them, I unclipped the switch housing from the base panel. The switch housing contains one switch for each drawer. The switches are wired normally closed (NC) and each switch has three spade connections, so it's important to note where the wires went. With the switch housing out, I could ohm out both switches and both checked good. I inspected the contacts and noticed that one of them was oxidized, evidenced by discoloration.
and clean off the contacts. That'll restore the current flow for that circuit. ." So I cleaned the contacts and reassembled the dishdrawer. I ran the top drawer and...no F1 error code! I ran it several more times just to be sure.

ok , F1 means your flood switch has activated, which is underneath the drawer. now they show the F1 fault because of 2 reasons.1st there is still water underneath drawer causing switch to activate. 2nd your activator board which has the flood switch attached is faulty reading your posting it has been about 15 days since the fault happened. the water should have dryed around switch by now. if there is power to the unit and it is still coming up with F1 fault then possibly you have damaged the activator board. please reply and tell me if you have power on or off at the present time. to fix the problem it is alittle bit involved but i can guide you thru it when you reply .good luck

"F1" Flashing on Control Panel on my Fisher Paykel Dish drawer DS603. User manual says Flood switch has been activated and to call Authorized Service. Can I fix it instead myself? If so, how?


Thanks - your expert pointed me in the right direction. Never found a leak, but I dried up the water in the tray, which may have been from condensation, and dishwasher seems to work fine now.
