Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

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!!

Just run the shortest wash cycle and check if it empties in the end. If not, then you have some blockage in the filter sump.

Go to the part of the user guide which explains how to clean drain filter and filter plate.

Hope this solves the problem.

Just had the same problem, removed the excess water from the drawers, turned off the power, removed the bottom drawer by pushing in the lugs at the bottom of the drawer where it butts up to the drawer front and pulling out the drawer. Then had to mop up with 4 t-towels and half a roll of kitchen roll the water in the bottom of the machine housing. The water gets into the electronics at the rear of the housing and obviously warns you of this by the F1 code?. I removed the white cover over the electronics with a screwdriver by pushing it into a slot then sliding the cover across to the right, it is indicated on the cover how to remove it. I also then removed the screw on top of the PCB (printed circuit board) and lifted up the grey plastic base and wiped under that and the under side of the PCB. The PCB unclips on the left hand end of it and lifts out, try not to pull the cables out though. I then used a hair dryer as suggested by someone else on here to dry out any excess that you could not wipe dry, my daughters Hello Kitty hair dryer didn't last long though, she's not impressed! So try not to stick the dryer right in the housing to avoid overheating it. About 5 minutes did the trick for me, then re-assembled everything, turned it on and hey presto! It worked!!!! Its not that hard, good luck!!!

This could be the control board that has failed, the door latch switch is bad, the solenoid in the valve is open. So if you post the model we might be able to get more info for you .

These use a claw type catch that rotates on a fixed loop catch receiver. Try removing the dishwasher lid, and remove the catch receiver to allow the door to open, With care you can then free the catch, and it will need to be adjusted correctly to prevent over rotation again. In the worst case, you may need to remove the inner door panel to free the door catch / receiver.
