F1 and beeping


F1 means the drawer lid is not closing properly - (lid seal leaking) which caused water to splash out when you started the wash cycle. The flood circuit on base of dishwasher housing (under the bottom drawer) has tripped. You will have to find the source of leakage and also dry the base of dishwasher housing. Make sure the dishwasher is unplugged form mains socket when you work in it.

F1 code


F1 is a flood sensor fault code. The problem sometimes comes from loading the machine above the top of the drawer. When the inside lid comes down before the dishwasher starts, it cannot seal completely and water can spray into the outer cavity. The water accumulates in the inner bottom where there is a sensor. The sensor protects the electronic components from getting wet by warning you of the water which you cannot see. The solution is to remove the bottom drawer and wipe out, then dry the compartment with a fan or a small space heater. Once dry, the machine will function as usual.

The locking lid mechanism is malfunctioning. It clicks three or four times then the letters FL are displayed.


this is what I suggest to you.

F=means Failure
"L" persists in washer display Lid lock failure Replace switch, linkage, lock solenoid or control board.
good luck to you.

F1 code coming up on my Oasis HE washer


YES! Serious problem...more annoying than anything else. Wait until your machine stops at the spin cycle and displays "F1" again. We just had a repair tech out today and received a quote of $384+ to fix/replace the circuit board. Kenmore & Sears are fully aware of this problem and have issued a recall on a model that is one digit off of the model I have yet they will not do anything about this even though it is the same problem. These machines are huge dogs!

Fisher Paykel DD603 Problem. Top drawer shows F1 and pump runs continuously. Lower drawer does nothing, no display. I think the Electronic Controller in lower drawer is fried and maybe the Mains Filter...


Yup, definately the bottom drawer controller, for some reason you can run a DD603 with no board in the top, so long as you have a board in the bottom, but not the other way around. This is the fault you get, constant F1 from the top drawer. If you are stuck try removing the display cable from the bottom controller, this may help, so long as you leave the chassis harness in.

F1 Error on Fisher & Paykel Nautilus


It leaked before leading to this.
1- Unplug the power.
2- Dry out the leak.
3- Before taking off the lid seal, check if Lid actuator working by going to diagnostic mode. 4- Select LD.
5-Pull the drawer half way out so you can see the lid going down or not when you turn on by pressing lock button.
6- Press the lock button again to release the Lid.
7- Most the time it is a Lid actuator problem and your seal look good, then you replace the Lid actuator only.
8- If it is a problem with the Lid actuator and your seal look bad then replace all .

Kenmore Elite Oasis HE getting F1 code. What does this indicate?


your board is confused and cannot read water level, very easy fix, pull off console(three screws on rear) and remove clear hose on right side of main control. blow into with your mouth and clear tube. reconnect hose and try, if F1 continues main control will need to be replaced, Sears is offering this for free if your unit falls within a certain serial number range, Also a biggie.....You must use he soap only with the oasis....no exceptions.....

My washer starts and stops a few seconds later with a FL code


Hello donaldwoulla,
I’m an owner of a FAV6800AWW not a GURU, this forum automated rating system is way too generous, I will try to help. Do you feel OK to try some troubleshooting? The following troubleshooting assumes you want try a possible DIY fix.
“FL” code is Failed to lock, we will try a few troubleshooting steps. The following test will be done by selecting the Spin Only cycle. First test will be done in service mode.
1. This is from SM; Press Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for 3 seconds to activate Service Mode. Access Board Output Test by pressing the Delicates key. Display shows “ot” and the lid locks should actuate locking the lid. Does this happen, do you take the “FL” fail code in this process? Hit OFF button to cancel this test.

2. I want to make sure you signal an “OP” alarm to the display. Can you select Spin Only cycle with the lid open press start. Do you signal the “OP” alarm, lid open to the display? If it does close the lid and the “OP” alarm should clear, does it? I’m checking that the lid magnet is in place and the signaling connections are working thru the left lid lock back to the control board.

3. With spin only cycle selected and the lid closed press the Start Button do both lid locks try to close and lock the lid? From your initial post I believe you throw a “FL” to the display very quickly, that is the left and right lid locks do not actuate several times before the control board displays the “FL” fail code. Is that correct?

4. This step requires you to raise the top off the washer you will need to the move the washer out several inches and you should have a helper available to hold the lid up for you. Unplug the washer from the 120VAC outlet. Use this info and the FAV6800A/9800A Service Manual to assist you. To raise the top of the machine, insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point. We are going to reseat the Left Lid Lock plug a couple of times into the Left Lid Lock. We are checking to see if there might be some corrosion on the plug contacts. Take a look at page 34 of the SM. Top right of the page Lid Lock/Reed Switch Removal where the persons thumb is. This is the plug we want to remove and reseat a few times. It may be difficult to do remove so be careful. Mine was very difficult to remove the first time. This lid lock is near the bleach dispenser and other owners have had corrosion issues with this left lock causing issues. After doing this and you have reseated the plug into the left lid lock a few times power up the washer and give it a try.

Just to let you know don’t worry about the right lid lock, it’s signaling and control functions are in parallel with the left lid lock. I’ve had mine disconnected since mid Dec. The left lid lock is the important lid lock. It has the dual functions of signaling the control board that the lid is open/closed by the magnetic reed relay in that lid lock and the lid is locked by contact closure back to the control board in that lid lock. If this doesn’t help resolve the issue we will try removing the left lid lock to inspect if you feel OK to continue. Good luck. Rich

Fisher paykel dish drawer


The motor impeller is located inside the tub.
To remove/inspect:
1. Remove dishrack and filter
2. Twist the strainer lock ring counterclockwise to disengage.
3. Lift and remove strainer and lock ring assembly
4. Remove impeller, inspect for damage and/or debris in sump.
Hope this helps....

The F1 code is retained in memory as the most recent fault (may have happened awhile ago) and may not be related to the current issue.
However FYI

F1 code can be caused by several things:
1. Defective lid motor(s)...Each drawer has two lid motors that pull the lid tight to the drawer when the cycle is started. (this was very common on early models)
2. Something too tall was placed in the drawer preventing the lid from closing completely.
OR
3. (only seen this once) the drain hose developed a crack causing water to leak only when draining.

Error - LiD


Probably something wrong with the lid lock system. You should here a good sized click and the lid lock light should come on. If not, its probably a bad lock system. Good Luck!!!! Jim
