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!
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.
$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.
I would check tosee if your water meaning hot water temp is hook up correctly. i have seen cold water going to machine and causing the machine to do funny things. 1 the unit drains.2. it fills.3.it washes if the water is cold there is your problem .make sure b4 you start machine the water going in is hot. let me know how you made out maybe we can further check. p.s im a old bosch tech:)
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.
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.
