This means the rotor driving the impeller and wash arm is faulty or the rotor cavity has some obstructions. You will have to remove the rotor and clean the cavity or replace the rotor.

SOURCE: Bottom drawer shows code F2

The motor rotor is faulty or something is stuck in the rotor cavity.

Remove the filter plate and twist the rotor out to check. If it needs replacement you can get it from this site.

Also check the channel between the rotor cavity and the drain sump to make sure nothing is stuck.

This should fix the problem.

F2 code on Fisher Paykel dishwasher


The problem is linked to rotor operation during discharge cycle. By replacing the rotor with bottom will only address part of the problem. There is very likely some obstruction in the pump cavity. This is the small channel connecting the drain sump and the pump cavity. Grab a thin but rigid wire and clear this channel. Usually a bone chip or some seed.
Also confirm if the top rotor worked ok when you moved it to the bottom drawer.

The top drawer of our F & P dishwasher is showing and F2 fault, I have just fitted a new front control unit. F2 is the pump I believe, where on the unit do I find that?


The F2 fault implies there is a problem with the motor rotor which is located under the drain plate at the bottom right in the centre of the drawer. The rotor is actually driving the wash arms.

F2 does not necessarily mean you have to replace the rotor. It is also possible there is some debris inside the rotor cavity which is preventing the rotor from rotating at the normal speed.

Remove the racks and the wash arm. Twist the centre ring so that it disengages the drain plate. You can then pull the rotor out with a few back and forth twisting motions. Check if the cavity is clean. Re-insert everthing and start the wash cycle. If F2 comes in again, you will have to eliminate the cause by using the rotor from the bottom drawer and see if it makes any difference. You may then have to buy a replacement part.

good luck

We have the error F2 showing on our dish drawers


normally the F2 showing on both drawers is unusual.

It is a rotor fault. Which means either the rotor that drives the wash arm and also works as a pump is either faulty or there is some rubbish stuck in the rotor cavity.

Lift the fiter plate out and open the rotor ring. Get the rotor out and inspect. If it looks ok or there was no noise when the F2 error showed up then the hall sensor mounted on the underside of the drawer is faulty.

The hall sensor can be hard to replace unless one has good experience in repairing dishwasher.

My dishwasher is showing signs of a spanner


I am slightly unsure if your double drawer dishwasher is the prefinished model (self standing with LCD display) or the integrated model with no LCD display.

The spanner symbol on the top drawer is telling you that a fault code is actuated. But I am not sure where this symbol is on your unit if it is built -in (integrated model).

You will have to check which red light (from the left) is coming on.
I assume there are 5 lights on the inside of drawer.

With the bottom drawer - again you will have to check which light from the left comes on sometimes as you mentioned.

If you have a user manual you should be able to tell what Fault code it is - something like F1 or F2 etc. Is it continuously beeping when the red light is on? How do you turn the beeps off?

The scrubbing bush symbol on bottom drawer may not be a problem. It appears the drawer is programmed to a particular option. But I am not sure where this symbol is showing if you do not have an LCD display panel. You can reset the option - possibly auto lock or auto power or dish cleaned (depending on your model) if you follow the user manual.

happy to take you through a possible cause of the problem if you post answers to my questions above.

F2 flashing on lower drawer


F2 means "motor not sensed to be rotating"
You said "very rarely used" also. The two go hand-in-hand in most cases. If you leave the drawer sit unused for months and months, this can ruin the motor rotor. The rotor comes out with no tools. Remove the dishrack, the wash arm (both simply lift off) and then the stainless steel filer/cover. This is removed by rotating the collar counter-clockwise and lifting it up. Now rotate the collar for the rotor counter-clockwise and lift the motor rotor out of the pump base. See if it spins freely. it;s probably frozen. You also can try swapping the rotor from the upper drawer into the bottom and see if that will work for you. if the rotor is bad, it is a part number 525884P and you can get them here:

If you find this info to be accurate and correct, please rate my answer as a FIXYA.

Need users manual, (f2) fault


Hi and welcome to FixYA!
F2 means the motor is not being sensed to be rotating. Lift off the wash arm and see if you can spin the blue impeller by hand. If it won't turn, it may be frozen of ajmed by an object like broken glass. Sometimes also if you let the drawer sit unused for a long time (some people only use the top drawer) the rotor will freeze up. The part number is a 525884P if you need a new one, it requires no tools to change it. As for the user guide, you can get one free here:

Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawer won't run, beeps F2 error code


Craig, we had virtually the same situation.  The repair man  came and it took 2 minutes to fix.  The problem was that the bottom drawer had not been used for a couple of years and thus the impellor had jammed.  to fix it take out the basket, lift off the rotor arm and unscrew the knob.  Then just work the impellor around with your fingers until it frees.  It then worked perfectly.  We will use the bottom often from now on to prevent this happening again. By now the left over pumpkin pie will be a bit green!!
