When water accumulates in the bottom it triggers an error code and it keeps running. There is a water sensor in the bottom. I pull out the bottom drawer, mop up the water and use a hair dryer to dry the water (the more you mop up the less you need the hair dryer). Be careful to not get any of the plastic too hot. Kill the power before messing with the unit. The first time I did this it took 20 minutes to dry out. I have gotten more proficient and it take about 5 minutes now.

I had a water leak which was due to the rinse agent cap not being completely sealed. Water leaked out of a small hole in the front (I'm guessing an air vent but don't know for sure) and flooded the bottom.

I also had a leak due to having too tall a dish in the drawer and the top not sealing. I currently have a leak on the top drawer of unknown origin, but the bottom drawer still works.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: dish drawer leaks

The f1 is a flood error. There is a sensor in the bottom reading water. You have to dry it out before you can do anything or the drain pump will just keep running. Check the lid of the drawer you where using to see if anything may have been holding it up or if the seal is torn. If that looks ok you will have to check the lid actuators to see if one is not working. I would replace both right and left if one is out.

F1 error on Fisher and Paykel Dish Drawer


Sorry did not see your problem report earlier. If you have checked the sensor under the bottom drawer and it is dry, then F1 is caused by top drawer power filter fault. This means the bottom drawer controller is giving the F1 error but the top drawer controller has no power. Can you confirm this.

Yes ,you may be able to restore function by completely drying the area and PC board located under drawer.Use a hair dryer.
However , you will still have a leak and the problem will return.Usually the leak is drawer lid not closing properly. Suspect lid actuators have failed.Very common.Or some kind of obstruction.The drawer can be removed easily by removing 2 large plastic scews at drawer front.If lid actuators have never been replaced go ahead and do that.It is normal for other drawer to work fine.

Hope this helps you

Showing f1


The f1 fault is cased by a leak on the dishwasher.
It is activated when water gets to a dangerous level in the base of the appliance near to the PCB.

The main reason this happens is putting cups on the drop down shelves and when the lid comes down to seal the drawer it can't and leaks. If you look at the drawer when open there is a lip around it, if anything is proud of this lip the lid will not shut properly.

To rectify this problem you will have to disconnect the power and remove the bottom drawer and the dry up all the water in the base. If you leave the appliance long enough it will dry out by itself.

Once you have done this and the problem still comes back you will need and engineer as there is a problem with the lid motors or the seal’s.

Good luck hope this helps..
