Do not buy. Viking dishwashers are made by Asko and are prone to the same issues, which are numerous; if you have the cash go for Miele.

What does the code F1 means?

On Fisher and Paykel.

F1 on a fisher paykel is in fact a water/flooding issue. But in your case you said it was running fine at the old location and now you have problems. Just be sure of a few hings.
1. The drain hose does not rise above the machine.
2. The drain hose doesn't just run straight down from the bottom of the machine.
Make sure your drain hose is mounted at a level that is a little above the middle of the dishwasher. High hoses cause back flow and too low of hoses can cause constant draining.
I think you may be constantly draining the machine. just be sure the hose is positioned correctly let it come from the bottom of the machine rise almost to the top and then back down. in a hump shape. (this should be mounted like this from the factory on the side of the machine but just check to make sure.)
Also be sure your water is on. I know this sounds obvious but it happens more often than people think. The f1 code could be coming from you not getting any water in the machine. There is a water level sensor built into it. and if the water valve is open for a while and then detects no water after a while it will throw the f1 code. mainly because the machine thinks its filling but the water level sensor says its not therefore the machine thinks it is leaking out.
Check your water.
Check your hose.
Check to make sure there isn't anything plugging the hoses.
Check that there isn't any water sitting under your machine by all its motors and wires.
Check that you have it level
If all this checks out good then you may have an actually problem machine. But i think its just fine. You may have just overlooked a step while installing it. get it all adjusted and you'll be golden. Hope this helps you!

We just found out that our 2-year-old GE Profile 18" dishwasher (PDW1800NBB) has a puncture in the back stainless steel wall. The leak (over how much time I don't know) has damaged the floor and cabinet...

Sounds lie it might have happened at the factory or from whatever establishment you purchased it from, call the company I would, tell them of your concerns, and the damages, if they do not offer some sort of recourse in your favor, it becomes a civil matter, or try you renters or home owner policy, as I am sure your deductible is way lower than what it will cost to fix this mess, have your insurance company go after the ge people or they probably will just take care of it for you and bag the civil thing, I mean really that's what insurance is for, good luck

Hi just read your posting,I know these machines well.When you purchase the new panel you get the membrane or touch buttons and the rest of the components eg---control board,door handle--etc--- you must take off your old panel and refit them to the new panel.Before you attempt this job unplug the power point first.If you require additional help please reply and I can guide you throe the refitting of the panel.Looking forward to your reply.

My dishwasher is 6 months old. It was very quiet

Hello. Call the store where you purchased this machine, or the installer. This unit is still under warranty and you do not want to work on it yourself as this will void the warranty. Joe

Water pump gone on our d1796 and asking $450 to fix also rinse aid broken as well. Washer is 7 years old. Is it worth fixing. Thanks, Greg.

$450 Wow.... 7 years old, in my humble opinion.. NO WAY. It is better to put your money into a new one rather than have "Fixed" one that may break down again, once things start going... well.. you know the story I am sure.

Your dishwasher was manufactured in November of 1986. Uh...its actually 23 years old, which could be why I had a hard time locating a manual for you. I was able to find a manual at the following link:

There's an Owner's Manual and Installation guide listed.

If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Replace a dishwasher

Hopefully there's enough slack in your water supply hose for you to just pull out the machine and unscrew the hose.  Be sure to turn off the water before you unscrew it.  You might be able to unscrew the bottom plates to access the supply connection from the front.  Your new machine will probably have a 3/8" female connection.  I'd suggest having a 3/8" street elbow and an adapter for 3/8" male to whatever your plastic pipe.  The other thing to watch for is whether your machine is hardwired for electricity or has a cord and plug.  You can use your old cord and plug on the new machine, if the new one doesn't have one.

Dishes and inside the washer are not drying

Make sure that the drain hose is connected as per manufacturer instructions, and that there isn't a direct run down from the sink u-bend to the machine. The rinse agent effects dishes dry but has nothing with the water remaining in the machine. Good luck!
