Question about Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers

1 Answer

Hi, I've got DS 603 single draw dishwasher Ser. No. CPM 739878, It has given a fl code for the flood switch. I have removed the draw and made the observation that the lower steel housing has partially flooded, hence the code. I intend to replace the flexible hoses Input and discharge hose. I am wondering once I replace the hoses, dry the housing and associated printed circuit bourd area should the fault code reset its self or is there further tech. assist required. The draw was manafactured in 2001 and to date has done a good job. Any assist would be greatly appreciated. John.

In the catch basis there is a printed circuit board that contains a sensor that detects moisture. Once throughly dry however, the sensor will no longer sense moisture and the flood code will cease and desist.
BUT before replacing the hoses, (alot of work) please, please consider these points....
There are three possible scenarios for a flood code;
1. Defective lid motor(s)...Each drawer has two lid motors (one on each side of the drawer) that pull the lid tight to the drawer when the cycle is started. Lid motor issues were very common on early models
2. Something too tall was placed in the drawer preventing the lid from closing completely.
OR
3. (only seen this once) the drain hose developed a crack causing water to leak only when draining.

Hope this helps.....

Let me know if I can be of any further assistance

My dish draw **** up with a service code f 1 , what does this mean


This can mean several things. If you have double drawer dishwasher then you need to confirm if you get the F1 message in both drawers or just one.
If both drawers then it is caused by water leakage and flood switch activiates. If only in one drawer then the power supply to the other drawer is blown.
For single unit drawer it means flood switch triggered.

Flood switch will not reset


The lid seal is damaged and it lets water go through and collect on the flood switch which may be triggering F1.

You will have to replace the lid seal. It is item 8 on page 14 of this diagram.

Sounds like an extreme case of oversudsing! The flood switch located at the back on the bottom pan under the bottom draw. To remove bottom draw you need to push the runner clips in on each side and slide back. The runner clips are located on each side at the front just behind the front panel. Once the draw is out, Remove the excess water from the pan (Throughly) and presto!

How do i reset. F1 fault code is on. i fixed the flooding


then u havnt fixed it, if you fixed the flooding it should automatically stop showing the error if you have dryed the water from the base of the unit under the draw when u take it out and it still saying F1 then your mains filter board has been cooked as they use a small circuit board as the flood sensor with a little tab that sticks out to sense any water touching it if the leak was pretty major the machine may hav not been able to stop it before the board went under water, they have actually made upgraded filter boards with a gel coating over it to prevent such things from happeing

How do you know the flood switch is activated? Do you have a display on your dishwasher and what is it showing? If no display then which lights if any on the panel are on?

Flood switch is at the very bottom underneath the bottom draw in the base floor.Unplug cord.Open bottom draw all the way & squeeze a towel or sponge under the draw & soak up the water..The washer should work now..Why did it flood in first place?
Check that dishes are not stacked higher than top edge of the draw otherwise it can't seal.this can happen when children are asked to stack the dishwasher.Another cause is some models the seal is an inflatable tube that seals the top edge of the draws,it gets cut or sliced buy a plate that was stacked to high when you closed the draw.there should be no clunk of dished hitting when the draw is closed.

ok , F1 means your flood switch has activated, which is underneath the drawer. now they show the F1 fault because of 2 reasons.1st there is still water underneath drawer causing switch to activate. 2nd your activator board which has the flood switch attached is faulty reading your posting it has been about 15 days since the fault happened. the water should have dryed around switch by now. if there is power to the unit and it is still coming up with F1 fault then possibly you have damaged the activator board. please reply and tell me if you have power on or off at the present time. to fix the problem it is alittle bit involved but i can guide you thru it when you reply .good luck
