The F1 error on a Fisher and Paykel dishwasher means the flood switch was activated for seven seconds or longer. ... You might not realize it if the water was flooding into the compartment under the sink instead

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!!!

Its a most common problem in this kind of model. The reason for F9 display in your washer is that due to a electronic malfunction that occured in your unit. You cant replace any of the faulty part in your washer and its very difficult to identify the faulty area in your unit. So if you think you can do it by your own then the answer is "NO"..
Best way to fix your problem is that call your authorized service centre and they will fix your problem for sure..

We had this problem a few days ago. We called a repairperson, who recommended unplugging the unit, then replugging. It seemed to reboot it — closes as it should and works fine.

Fisher & Paykel have many different models, not all the same. Some have a bottom seal that can't be replaced. What model number is yours?

Hi - here are the instructions to help with your project

1. Isolate from power.

2. To remove the outer door panel, remove the eight screws securing it to the inner door panel. Be careful of sharp edges.

3. To remove the handle, remove the six torx drive screws securing it through the inner door panel.

4. Refit in reverse manner.

Note: 230 volts is still present at the detergent dispenser and electronic P.C.B. unless power is isolated at the plug outlet or mains.

Location: The door handle latch is located within the centre of the handle moulding

and is retained by a pivot latch. The microswitch is situated on the side of

the latch and is clipped in.

After isolating the machine from the power supply:

1. Remove outer door and handle (refer Section 6.2).

2. Remove the latch by sliding it away from the P.C.B. console.

3. Unclip the microswitch from the latch.

4. Ensure the springs and microswitch lever are fitted to the latch when re-assembling.

Refitting: Refit in reverse manner.

Sorry I cannot provide a sketch for public view, I may get into trouble.

We just had this problem, the dishwasher filling, then humming with a slight burning smell. It would drain ok if turned off then on again. It was the capacitor. The part cost $27 and the repairer charged $73 to fit it.

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!!

Hi hope this helps...cheers

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.
