Start button pressed , it starts to drain, you can see the water being drained but it does not cycle to wash


I'm presuming that the empty pump just runs constantly? If that's the case, then this is an anti flood protection. Water from a spill has got into the base of the machine and tripped the flood protection sensor. To cure the immediate problem, pull the machine out and tip it on it's side or back about 45 degrees and the water in the base will run out and the flood protection will reset. The real question is though, how did the water get INTO the base? Most common is that someone used household detergent instead of dishwasher powder or tabs and the foam it created worked its way into the base and then turned back to water as it settled. If this is the case, the tip sideways will be a permanent fix. If not, you will need to trace and cure the leak

Neff dishwasher continues to pump


Firstly if you haven't already you should probably check the flood switch with a multimeter, it may move freely but the contacts inside could be fused closed. Only the flood switch activates the drain full time otherwise it is directly controlled by the board so if its not the flood switch its probably the board. If the board has shorted you will likely see evidence of burnout on it.

Our fisher and paykel dishdrawer won't wash. It comes up with F1 and flashing light on control panel.


the dynamo dishwashing stuff has caused foaming which reached the base of the dishdrawer unit causing the flood switch to trip. This gives F1 error.
Not sure how much foaming has occured.

Best to turn off power and take power cable out from socket. then empty the drawer using towels. pull out the bottom drawer and wait a day or so to let the foam disappear from the bottom of dishwasher (under the bottom drawer). Connect the power and see if F1 had gone. If not, you need more work. Post a comment based on the above suggestion and I will guide you further if required. Always use Finish dishwasher power only (recommended quantity) as the drawers are small and don't need much detergent.

How to reset the flood switch on a fisher & paykel


Hi - unfortunately my good friend it cannot be reset as one would like quite easily anyhow... water has found its way to the base of the drwaers and have activated the flooding switch - one could pull it apart to dry it - tip the water out from the base but if the leaks not repaired you will have the same problem later and will be on-going.

F1 fault


F1 code would mean the flood switch is activated.

In Nautilus people have found this to be caused by a faulty door seal.
Water seeps under the diswasher base panel and finally the flood switch (a protection) activates.

The solution is to replace door seal after drying out under the base panel.

You can unclick the top part which gives better access to the lower part with the blockage. Hot water, pipe-cleaners, cable ties, bits of wire can all be employed to get the grease out.

How do I reset my dishwasher


Sounds to me like you have put the dishwasher into flood mode, this happens when there is water in the base panel, try leaning the dishwasher back and see if any water comes out. :)

Here are the eco related error codes for your washer..
1)Light 3 (eco) flashes. Water is present in the flood catching tray at the bottom which usually indicates that there is a leak somewhere. More often than not this is just a pipe with a poor fitting and simply tightening the clip is enough to stop the leak. Our machine had a very slow leak from one pipe (not enough to trigger the alarm) which was fixed in this way. The leak is detected by a small float switch located in the flood catch tray.

Undo 4 screws on the metal plate under the dishwasher 3 at the front 1 at the back, this reveals The pump check the seals are in place on the waste pump.

2) Wash indicator lights 3 + 5 (eco + pre) flashing rapidly. Filter is clogged. Pull out the filter and clean it.
3)Runs for approx. 3 minutes and then stops. Lights 3 + 4 (eco and fast) flash. Probably caused by being plumbed into a hot rather than cold water supply. The incoming water is hotter than required for the wash which causes the machine to cut out. Plumbing the machine into a cold water supply will fix the problem with no apparent long term problems.

this sounds as though it is in "flood mode" and may have a water leak into the base. unplug unit and check for leaks by tipping the dishwasher at a 45degree angle backwards and seeing if any water seeps out from the base. if it does you have a hose/ pump / seal leak.
