F1 code on Fisher and Paykel dishdrawer

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!!!

Fisher paykel dishdrawer bottom drawer washes fine leaves water in top drawer

At some point the two drawers individual drain hoses are joined using a "Y' type connector. Check this, and everything beyond this point for restrictions or blockage. It sounds like the bottom drawer is pumping its drain water out normally, but some of that water is backing up to the upper drawer. This is an installation or plumbing problem that is external of the dishdrawers.

Fisher paykel drawer dishwasher is stuck open and

Hey I dont know if you have this problem, but with mine the gasket seemed to be blocking the opening, so you could close it, but you had to shove a lot. The FP help line said to just unplug and replug in the unit. I did it and lo and behold it worked fine again. It did seem to leak a little bit the first time I reran it, but that seems to have gone away. Hope this helps

My fisher/paykel dishwasher does not complete a cycle

It is possible the delayed start option has been set by mistake.

The way to cancel that would be to press the power button off and then on.

However, I am assuming this problem is with only one of the two drawers.

But I am not sure how much of the wash cycle is done before it goes to pause, eg. do you hear the water flowing in, do you hear the washer arm moving and throwing water around?

If it does not get to the stage of water coming in but you do hear some sounds as soon as the start button is pressed then it is likely the door seal is not setting properly which causes the dishwasher to stop.

Anything you see on the display or lights (if no LCD display)? Trying cleaning the door seal with a clean damp cloth. If problem still there then you need to get the door seal serviced. It is slightly sophisticated part with seal and two motors which require some expertise to replace.

Happy to guide you if door seal replacement is needed. Post me a comment on what you find.

How do I fix F9 fault for Fisher & Paykel

This is a controller fault and could be due to number of reasons. Either the controller itself is not sensing the sensors or some sensor is faulty. If it is occuring consistently and turning mains power and on is making no difference, then it is something a techniician will have to look at.

My Fisher and Paykel Dishdrawer is not draining at all.

If both drawers are having the problem then it is unlikely the drain pump is the problem. You may need to check the blockage in your kitchen drain or if using garbage disposal unit then ensure it is clean and not blocking the drain.

Water won't drain

To determine if your pump works, before attempting access from the bottom of the top drawer or from the bottom of lower drawer: You can manually pump the water out by doing the following:
1- Press the Power button to turn off the display.
2- Press the Lock button and then the start button the same tim. Hold them until the display showing up.
3- If the display is not clear with all the characters, press power button to see clear the display.
4- The first display is bL, then Er,Ld..dd, FU, P1, P2...by pressing the Start button to go by the sequence until P2 (drain). If you miss, be patient to continue press and release the start button to get back to P2.
5 When is is at P2, press Lock button to tun on the drain. When you hear the water flowing to the drain, you could pull the top drain to see how the water is draining.
6- When the water is out, press the lock button again to stop it.
7-When it is done, press the Power button to get out of manual mode.

If this is working, then your water is there because you are running the bottom and your air gap allow back flow to the top drawer and or you are running the top and your air gap allows a back flow to the bottom drawer.
Please let me know if this is not the case.

Dishwasher beeps 3 times and won't start

I finally solved this problem by doing the following:
I removed the front plate, this can be done by removing the two round plugs one on each side of the lower front of the washer just above the rack. once you do this the front comes off, then you remove the ground wire. From the front upper right there is a photo sensor in two plastic tube, make sure they are in correctly and not slipped out of position.
My washer, it appears the plastic casing that is holding the circuit board and the sensor broke off on one end, I simply taped it to the main body by using electrical tape and made sure it was secure.
I put everything back and now my washer doesn't stop anymore.

Dishdrawer Door Switch DD601 v2

i had teh exact same problem, pull the face of the door off (by the plastic screw pins either side of the drawer) remove the face and open the plastic box which contains the circuit boards, on the lower right you will find the actuator, and i bet you will find the crappy quality plastic has broken, you will have to either source out one of these or do as i did and made one out of copper which works perfectly

DW60CE dishwasher - E6 fault flood switch activated. Unit has not been use

DW60CE dishwasher - E6 fault flood switch activated. After tipping the dishwasher on its side & it releasing its water from its tray, the fault cleared. I removed the bottom cover & inspected its internals for traces of a leak or evidence of leaking. I could follow the calcium or detergent trail from the rear water duct connection near the top feeding sprayer arm, down the back of the dishwasher & into the tray. The lock nut on the duct where it enters through the inside S/S skin had become loose & simply needed to be tightened.

How to replace fisher and paykel dishdrawer inlet hose

Thank you so much to Greg for his advice. I had pulled out the motor and put back in with no result but after reading his post, I found that the tube from the sump to the pump was blocked and once that was cleared, all good. Saved me the cost of a serviceman as the last dishes that I had washed had fish so the water was rapidly becoming rancid and I had to solve the problem quickly.

My fisher paykel top draw does not close fully and

check the draw on the sides at the front as the draw sits on runners and there are tabs on the runners at the front which hold the draw on. hold the plastic tabs both sides and slide the draw past the slots on the bottom sides of the draw.
