Question about Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher
Disconnect the power supply for few minutes, say 15 minutes and then turn it on.If the same error displayed, read below :-
Your appliance has experienced the ubiquitous F1 flood error. The only way to stop the beeping is to remove power. Your course of action depends on the next step. You need to look BEHIND the lower unit drawer. Remove power, then open the lower drawer all the way, and press those plastic tabs (down at the sides, along the bottom and just below the round buttons)- inwards. Now slide the drawer out a couple inches more. You can now see behind the drawer.
Is there water in the catch pan? If no, the Mains Filter Board beneath that plastic cover in the back is bad. It thinks it's flooded while in fact it is not. Replace it.
If there IS water back there, you need to find where it's coming from. Usually, the fill and drain hoses are NOT at fault. Go into Diagnostics Mode, and operate the water fill valve (FV), and look for leaks at the valve and along the fill hose as the tub fills.
(You'll want to remove that large plastic cover in the back to see the valves and hoses coming from them. Lift the drawer off its rails and set it off to the left if there's space for it. Upper drawer, set it on top of the bottom drawer).
Operate the drain pump (P2) and look for leaks in the drain line. If no water is seen leaking from those sources, go on to the Lid Motors and the Link Supports.
First inspect the link support (that white plastic rod that spans the tub service lines). They typically snap in two at the mid span point. If it's snapped, there's your problem. Replace it with the updated link support. Also run the Lid Motors (LD). As they transition up and down, do they respond strongly, or do they sound weak and labored? If the motors are in a white plastic case, you have the old motors and they will need replacing soon anyway. When they grow weak their ability to pull the seal down strongly is diminished.
Should you get an F1 error code on the TOP UNIT ONLY, it means that the LOWER UNIT has experienced some failure in the Water Heating Circuit. You will need to test those components to detect what has failed. Get out the schematic and your multimeter!!
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
