You have probably figured out by now that the only way to stop it is to unplug it. The F1 code means that the Mains Filter flood sensor has been activated. There are a few reasons this may occur. 1. there was a large pan or dish that prevented the lid from closing fully, thus flooding. 2. the lid actuators, motors, did not close the lid completely and they need replacing. 3. the Link Support (holds the wires and hoses in place behind the drawer) has broken and is impeding the lid from closing fully. It and the lid would have to be replaced. These are the normal causes for the F1 error code. You will need to get a Tech out to have a look to determine the cause. Good luck.

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!

DD603 Does Seal need replacement? F1 Error Code


F1 error code appears because moisture has been detected by the flood switch on the base of the housing under the drawer.

If you think the door seal was not fitting properly then that too can cause moisture leak into base of the unit where the flood switch is located. Steam condensation would also lead to moisture.

Best option might be to replace the door seal for the top drawer. This is not a trivial thing as the unit has motor actuated door seal which can be tricky to fit back in.

Also avoid foaming in the detergent by using the correct powder and not tablets.

Please rate this solution if you are satisfied otherwise post a comment.

My Fisher & Paykel dishdrawer dd603 is flashing f1


the flood switch at the base of the dishwasher has been activated. This means moisture has gone into the base (under the drawer).

Turn power off, and extend drawer to expose bottom back of the base. Use towels / hair dryer etc to dry it out.

Likely causes are - you used a wrong detergent (too much foam) or the hoses at the back are leaking or the actuator arm that supports the hoses when you pull or push the drawer is broken and the hose is kinked.

Hope you can fix it.

Doulbe Draw model receiving an F1 error message.


F1 indicates flood switch has been activated. I wouldn't advise you attempt repair on these drawers- they really require an expert to disassemble (I worked for F+P for 10 years!!). Depending on which model you have (DD603 or DD601v2), repair varies. 603 has a small circuit board that acts as flood switch- located in base beneath drawer- requires drawer to be removed for access. 601v2 model has polystyrene float that acts as flood switch-leaks usually caused by split lid seal(tricky to access- drawer has to be removed) In either case, a leak has occurred and activated flood switch. These drawers are very sensitive to detergents (don't use tablets!!), and the way they are loaded.
Would suggest you get service technician to remedy F1 fault

E-mail for Fisher Paykel DD603 manual


Josh, you will need to have a Tech out to look at it... F/P will not sell you parts to repair it. The F1 indicates that the flood switch has been tripped. There are many possible causes for this but probably the upper drawer link support has broken and is getting stuck between the lid and the drawer in which case you will need a new lid and link support.

My f & p dishdrawer model DD603 has fault code F1:


Yes, you need to gain access to the inside bottom panel of the dishdrawer and drain/dry the water in the bottom panel. When all of the water is gone the polystyrene block will lower and turn off the flood system. You then need to find the reason the unit flooded and rectify it or the unit will just do the same thing again.
