F1 light flashing with a picture of a wrench

Both my drawers are flashing the "F1" symbol and a picture of a wrench as soon as I turn the power on (I turned the breaker off, left it off for 20 minutes) then turned the breaker back on. BOTH drawers start flashing and the sound coming from them is horrendous! A grinding noise that is so loud...I think they are going to take off to outer space. Help! My model is the DD603

Unplug or cut circuit breaker Remove your bottom drawer using side slide release as shown in your owners manual. Stainless steel enclosure requires complete drying of excess water with towel. Place hair dryer inside to dry out for 30 min or more, use low heat and do not let it get too hot. After it is completely dry place drawer back in and plug in power. It worked for me. Not alot of water will trigger this. Use a flash light to ensure all water has been wiped up or dryed by hair dryer.

Getting f1 flashing light and a picture of a wrench. how do i turn it off


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa.
F1 error means that the flood switch has been activated. You'll need to reset it by powering off the breaker or by unplugging the unit from the power socket and mains for more than five minutes. Please check that there is no blockage in the drain hose and it is not raised higher otherwise the water will run back to the dishwasher. Also perform the following procedure---

    • Unplug power and remove bottom dish drawer
    • Use a Sponge and dry all the excess water underneath
    • Remove circuit board cover
    • Dry all around and underneath as much as possible
    • Apply hairdryer for 10-15min

Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Flashes F1 and a wrench symbol... water doesn't drain


Assuming you are getting the F1 error in both drawers.

This means there is water at the base of the housing under the bottom drawer.

Turn power off and take the drawer out. You will have to pull out the plastic pins on either side and get the front cover off. This will enable you to pull the drawer out from the slide bar for better access. Use towels and hair dryer to get rid of all the water. The flood switch is mounted on the power board. Use hair dryer to dry this out.

Put everthing back and turn power on.

Post a comment if this is not fixed or the F1 is only coming in one of the drawers.

Dishwasher showing wrench symbol after using dishwashing liquid


I am assuming this F1 error is coming in only one drawer and that you are able to run the second drawer as normal.

In the case of your dishwasher the F1 error occured because the foam would have overflowed over the drawer top into the base of the unit. This would have triggered a flood switch which is there to protect water damage to the dishwasher. You can either wait a few more days until the base of the dishwasher drawer unit dries up or you can dry it yourself.

To dry the base, extend the drawer as far out as possible (turn mains power off first). The use a few towels and push them on to the base. Pull the towels out and dry the base especially the centre of it with a hair dryer.

The F1 should disappear once you put power back on .

Hope this helps. You have a very helful child who sets the dishwasher up. I have to keep pushing my children to even empty it.

Showing f1 and a wrench picture shows up


The flood switch at the base of the dishwasher (under the drawer) has triggered.

You will need to turn the power off (at mains) and extend the drawer as much out as possible. Use towels to dry the base and if possible use a hair dryer.

Turn power back on and try.
Possible causes are kink in drain hose (or crack), foaming detergent (use recommended powder).

Please rate this solution if satisfied otherwise post a comment.

F1 display flashing?


Flashing wrench means a fault code has been triggered.
F1 is the fault code when flood switch at base of dishwasher cabinet turns on.

This can occur due to several reasons when moisture gets to the base of the drawer cabinet.

You will have to turn the power off and extend the drawer out as much as possible to expose the back of the cabinet. Take towels and a hair dryer to dry the base. Once the flood switch gets dry the problem will go away.

The main thing is why did the water get there. You could have a crack in the hose or simply the detergent may have caused too much foam.

"Wrench" symbol and won't power off


I would suspect there is water getting under the machine and tripping the overflow. You're going to need service to determine the cause of the problem. sorry

F1 code on Fisher and Paykel dishdrawer


Hi,

It would seem to be in an endless loop (firmware glitch). Initially, pls try:
  • unplug from the mains or switch off the breakers for a couple of minutes;
  • plug back in/switch on the breakers say after 20 minutes;
  • press POWER to turn drawer on;
  • Press and hold (at the same time) both the POWER and ECO buttons for a few seconds;
  • a five minute demonstration wash cycle will come on;
  • press POWER again to put unit on standby, all the LCD segments will start flashing (and light up);
  • press and hold START/PAUSE for a few seconds to hear confirmation beep/tune.
Alternately, should you have the two-drawer, open any drawer and look at the wash intensity/economy buttons. Now press them, one at a time, alternating between the two, at even timing.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
