It would be helpful to know the reason why you changed the circuit board.

Is the bottom drawer working ok now?

There are several reasons for F1 to show up including the water flood at base.

May have to ask a few more questions when you post your response to above.

Hope we can fix this soon.

Hi,

Unless you keep using the wrong detergent or keep putting dishes that are to tall in there. i would have to say your actuators are bad and its not letting the lid go down to seal it all the time.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!



    Before you check on actuator on this model,quick read the below mentioned :-



    F1 means there is water in the base pan under the bottom drawer. You
    need to pull the bottom drawer forward and there are 2 square push tabs
    just behind the front panel near the bottom on the right and left side.
    Push on on these tabs and you can pull the drawer out further so that
    you can get behind the drawer and soak up the water in the base pan.
    When all the water out of the base pan, the F1 error will not return
    after you press cancel.



    I thought you have done the basic troubleshooting :(



    Follow the above and let me know unless we could always go on checking actuator.



    Let me know,if needed further assistance.



    Hope i helped you.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa.
F1 error means that the flood switch has been activated. You’ll need to reset it by powering off the breaker or by unplugging the unit from the power socket and mains for more than five minutes. Please check that there is no blockage in the drain hose and it is not raised higher otherwise the water will run back to the dishwasher. Also perform the following procedure---

    • Unplug power and remove bottom dish drawer
    • Use a Sponge and dry all the excess water underneath
    • Remove circuit board cover
    • Dry all around and underneath as much as possible
    • Apply hairdryer for 10-15min

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved else post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

F1 means there is water held in the bottom of the machine. You can remove the bottom plastic panel and dump the water out. Make sure everything is dry and it should work. Make sure it unplugged for quite a while also so it can reset. Fisher and Paykel seem to have lots of problems.

    Is there no water coming in the water valves? Have you tested the power to the water valves? If there is power to the valves and valves aren't operating correctly, then valves are faulty. Have you tested the new cicrcuit board for power?

F1 Error code


F1 is flood error. basically water has arrived at the bottom board. you can unplug the dishdrawer, remove the bottom drawer and dry the board at the bottom, maybe with a hair dryer carefully. this will reset the fault, but this is a fault that may appear again. replace the actuators that close the lid of the drawer that is leaking (look for signs of water running our of one of the drawers).

Have an f1 error that comes up , says it is a flood switch doesn t seem to be any water in the area around the dishwasher. Any ideas?


The flood switch is at the base of the dishwasher housing under the bottom drawer.

Do you have the F1 fault displayed in both drawers? If so, or if you have single drawer, then turn power off and take the bottom drawer out. Dry the base with towels and use hair dryer on the small circuit board at the base.

Put everything back and turn power back on. The source of leak could be lid seal, kink in hose or ruptured hose.

If you have 2 drawer unit and the F1 error is in top drawer only then the bottom drawer has lost power. Could be due to thermal fuse blown on heater plate.

Hope this helps find the problem.

We have a 23" Fisher&Paykel dishwasher and got


The F1 error coming on top drawer when operating bottom drawer is due to the thermal fuse blowing up on the bottom drawer and shutting controller power.

The thermal fuse could have blown either as a normal component failure or heater over heated due to thermostat failure. In any case this can be repaired by replacing the whole heater assembly as all the parts are integrated.

This is at the underside of the drawer and will need a technician to replace unless you are very familiar with repairing electronic dishwashers. The part look like this.

The way you have described the onset of the F1 error is not due to flood switch. You can confirm that the lights on the bottom drawer are out even though the top drawer is showing F1 and beeping.

If problem was flood switch then both drawers would show F1.

F1 error


The heater unit in the bottom drawer is blown. This causes power to shut off to the controller. The effect of this is the F1 error on the top drawer.

If you get the heater on bottom drawer fixed, that should take care of the F1 error in the top drawer.

No power in the dishwaher (it is plugged and yes power On)


If you didnt transport it home in an upright position,residual water may have gone down to the bottom of the cabinet and activated the flood switch(F1 =flood switch activated)To fix-FIRST UNPLUG FROM THE MAINS,so you dont get inadvertantly electrocuted.Remove the bottom drawer(there are tabs on either side of the draw that you need to push in and slide back about half way and lift the draw off the runners(refit by reverse procedure)
Carefully place draw to one side and on the LH side of the now exposed cavity you will see a grey ,white or black flattish plastic cover that will slide to the left and lift off to expose a credit card sized printed circuit board.on the LH end of that circuit board is the flood switch (the board is an upside down "L" shape and the flood switch is on the shorter part of the "L" that protudes down towards the floor(lowest point on the floor to detect any water in the event of a flood)remove the + shaped screw and CAREFULLY unplug the wires(noting their position down on a piece of paper )there is a latch that you have to push first before lifting out the credit card sized circuit board that is on the LH side of the board.Once removed mop up excess water on the floor of the cabinet and dry thoroughly the circuit board and wet cabinet area with a hairdrier.Then once totally satisfied its all completely dry,Refit the circuit board ,all the plugs(double checking they are correct and none missed out!)Refit the cover and refit the draw,Plug back in and hopefully that will solve the problem!

F1 alarm keep coming back on both drawer


I just had the same issue as a result of "mother-in-law" using regular liquid dish detergent in both drawers. After numberous attempts of cleaning out each drawer it still was beeping and attempting to drain both drawers even when the water was drained it continue to run and beep.
My presumption of what occurred is the wrong soup caused so much suds that it triggered the flood sensor. I removed both drawers and discovered water in the base area and moisture throughout. After disconnecting the power to the unit I removed the white plastic cover and exposed the small circuit board. I disconnected the power leads and the screw holding the board in place and lifted it up a bit. I then used a hair dryer for about 15 minutes until the entire area was dry and put it back together and has worked just fine. You will see a service diagram taped to the back pannel when you remove the bottom drawer. It has additional information on various error codes and the instructions on how to trouble shoot problems. I would also remind you to run water in the units if the cause was due to the wrong type of soap as the residue will continue to recreate the same problem.

I hope this helps.

F1 code on Fisher and Paykel dishdrawer


Just had the same problem, removed the excess water from the drawers, turned off the power, removed the bottom drawer by pushing in the lugs at the bottom of the drawer where it butts up to the drawer front and pulling out the drawer. Then had to mop up with 4 t-towels and half a roll of kitchen roll the water in the bottom of the machine housing. The water gets into the electronics at the rear of the housing and obviously warns you of this by the F1 code?. I removed the white cover over the electronics with a screwdriver by pushing it into a slot then sliding the cover across to the right, it is indicated on the cover how to remove it. I also then removed the screw on top of the PCB (printed circuit board) and lifted up the grey plastic base and wiped under that and the under side of the PCB. The PCB unclips on the left hand end of it and lifts out, try not to pull the cables out though. I then used a hair dryer as suggested by someone else on here to dry out any excess that you could not wipe dry, my daughters Hello Kitty hair dryer didn't last long though, she's not impressed! So try not to stick the dryer right in the housing to avoid overheating it. About 5 minutes did the trick for me, then re-assembled everything, turned it on and hey presto! It worked!!!! Its not that hard, good luck!!!
