Fisher & Paykel dishwasher top drawer is filling up with water when bottom drawer is ran.


It is the drain water from bottom drawer that is finding its way to the top drawer. This could be due to incorrect drain hose height. Check in installation manual. Alternatively you will have to buy an air gap kit and connect the two drain hoses separately to the kitchen sink.

Tip

Solve cross-draining problems with your Doule-Dishdrawer permanently!


Are you experiencing cross-draining problems with your older Fisher Paykel double dish drawer? Have you had a succession of technicians and service companies try to solve this problem, only to have it return again?
There is a reason this is happening to you and there is a way to fix it FOREVER.
In most cases, this problem can be traced to an improper installation. Fisher Paykel double-dishdrawers are in effect TWO dishwashers with two seperate drain hoses. Often times they are installed with an "air gap" which is required by many municipalities for code compliance. Installers who are used to installing "single" dishwashers often install a "single air gap" with a Y-adapter that connects both drawers to a single air gap, and to be fair, this is shown in the install instructions for the product. However it will usually not work for very long. The reason being, there is a small neoprene "check valve" in the base of the pump on both drawers. It is designed to keep the water from the last drain cycle from running back into the machine once the cycle stops. It was never designed to prevent the cross-drain condition. Over time the pressure from the water that wants to come from the other drawer will weaken that flap, causing it to "leak" and the result is when one drawer is run, the dirty water from one drawer drains partly into the other drawer. (YUCK!) Most techs will replace the flap, thinking they have solved the problem, and for awhile, yes, it will.
But this can get kind of expensive having to call for repairs every year or so.

The proper and permanent fix for this situation if to install a DUAL AIR GAP which can be purchased from Fisher Paykel parts: http://fisherpaykelparts.net/index.php?categoryid=1&productid=7

This device is totally "co-axial" in design and will not allow water from one drawer to get into the other. It also is "kosher" in that some Jewish families have a "meat" and "dairy" dishwasher and the two can never be mixed. If there is cross-draining going on, that is "not Kosher!" (pun yes, reality also!) This part will insure no cross-contamination.
These dual air gaps come with everything you need to replace a single air gap, and fit in the same hole. You can even transfer most decorative style covers that the customer may have on the single air gap (such as Bisque/Brushed Aluminum/Brass etc.) The feedback we have gotten from our own customers after instaling one of these is extremely positive, some going so far as to say it is like they have a new appliance, as it is now cleaning better than ever and there is no longer an objectionable odor coming from the drawer.

This is an excellent and PERMANENT code-compliant solution for cross-draining on older Fisher Paykel Dishdrawers. Try it. You'll like it!

Fisher paykel cross draining


As the drawers share a common outlet to the kitchen sink drain, it is the drain water from bottom drawer going to top drawer. Can happen if the drain hoses are not following the correct specifications for installation. An air gap kit is available to solve the problems.

F-1 error message


Hi


F1 means the flood switch was activated for more than 6 seconds. This error is due to excessive water in overflow pan of the dishwasher. To remove this error you'll need to remove the excessive water. For this you'll need to take out the bottom overflow ray and remove all the water in it, you will see a grey plastic cover on the bottom floor this is the sensor. Turn on your hair-dryer and blow the air on this area for atleast 5-10 mins. You can remove the bottom drawer by pushing in the clips on side of the drawer. Please post back for any further assistance. Daniel

Water is on the bottom of the top dishwasher


The 2 drains from both tube was connected to the same air Gap causing a back fill. the rubber flapper inside the dishwasher drain outlet is a poor design not strong enough to resist the pressure from the back fill. Don't waste money to buy these flappers for replacement, since they don't work. What you need is to buy a Air Gap with built in divert valve to install at the drain hoses from both tube to the air gap. Youe will have no problem like that afterward.
Here is the link to order.

The dishwasher top drawer is leaking all over the floor during the cycle. When the top drawer is running, It fills up the the bottom of bottom drawer with water also and then neither drawer drains...


Fisher and Paykel design a air gap kit to prevent the water back flowing to the other while one is running. it really works and worth of your money. You need to change the lid seal and a pair of actuators from the top drawer. Because of the leak then the floor switch activated not allowing a complete cycle. Need to dry out the wetness from the bottom housing of both top and lower drawers by pulling the tubes out and accessing from the left side with small tower until it completely dry.

My Fisher Paykel pushes water from one drawer to the other? How do I get it to drain completely?  Have cleaned filters.


Hi, welcome.
Cross-draining usually is because there's a single air gap connected to both drawers, which have individual drain hoses. The only way water goes from one drawer to the other is because the hoses are connected at the end of the line. There is a small "flapper" valve on each machine that is supposed to allow water to flow only out of the drain, but they are small and not designed to hold back the flow of a pump.

You have two option. One is to install a standpipe under the sink and make sure the drain hoses point down into it, (expensive)
or replace the single air gap with the proper style "dual air gap"
You can get them here and it will positively solve the problem:

Floods top drawer when washing bottom


The machine is not installed correctly, as it probably has a single air gap and the hoses for the two drawers are sharing that single air gap. These are basically two seperate dishwashers. There is a fix from fisher paykel parts:
