Turn power on wall off and pull the cable out. Get the bottom drawer out from the housing and carefully rest it on soft padding like a cushion on the floor. Take towels and dry the base of the main housing. Take a hair dryer to do the rest. Put things back in.
Sometimes foaming due to too much detergent can also trip flood switch.

Hi there, If you have had an F1 you need to dry out the product in order to reset the flood switch. This is a simple process as follows: 1. Ensure product is disconnect from wall so that it has no power. 2. Open the bottom drawer and put your hand in through the gap where the bottom of the bottom drawer comes out and feel the base of the cabinet that houses the drawers for water. 3. If there is water present dry it out as much as you can with paper towels or old rags. This machine is designed to drain all water to the front of the base of the cabinet away from the flood switch that sits at the back left corner of the cabinet base that the drawers are fitted into. 4. When you have base of the cabinet dry you need to ensure that the switch has not moisture on it in order for it to reset and allow you to start using the product. This can be done 2 ways: 1. leave bottom drawer open for 24-48 hours to allow natural air circulation to dry out the connection. or 2. position a hair dryer to blow air into the back left corner of the base of the cabinet and dry it out quicker. This still make take up to 6 hours as the flood switch had a protective cover over it to try to prevent F1's for small spills. 5. When the product had been dried out, important that you make sure it has, when you switch on the machine the F1 should be gone and ready to use. Please run each drawer seperately on a rinse cycle to confirm to yourself that it flooding was possibly caused by something blocking the sprayarm, or something stacked too high or something got stuck in the pump temporarily stopping it from draining effectively or the product suddsing too much from spilt rinse aide in one of the drawers. If each drawer runs successfully you should be in the all clear to start using it again. Please note though: if something blocks the spray arm that is directly linked to the pump your drawer will flood as a result. If you have something stuck in the pump peventing it from draining effectively ie a toothpick or piece of broken crockery this will cause your product to flood, but you will hear an louder than normal sound when the pump is running. And finally if you spill rinse aide in your drawer when filling it clean all spilt rinse aide to prevent unit from over sudsing when running. Regards KAR-Ltd

F1 indicates a problem with the Flood sensor. I cleaned all the filters etc. removed the drawer viewed under the drawer, it was dry. There is nothing further I can do, so called the Appliances repair person and booked an appointment for him to determine if an outlet hose is blocked or has a hole in it or whatever. Thanks for all the suggestions Blokes. I'm technically challenged. Happy New Year

It leaked before leading to this.
1- Unplug the power.
2- Dry out the leak.
3- Before taking off the lid seal, check if Lid actuator working by going to diagnostic mode. 4- Select LD.
5-Pull the drawer half way out so you can see the lid going down or not when you turn on by pressing lock button.
6- Press the lock button again to release the Lid.
7- Most the time it is a Lid actuator problem and your seal look good, then you replace the Lid actuator only.
8- If it is a problem with the Lid actuator and your seal look bad then replace all .

I suppose you want to get to the flood switch at the base of the dishwasher and dry it out.

Make sure the mains power is turned off.

please confirm which model do you have 820 or 920.

I am assuming this is the one without display.

most likely cause is the flood switch at the base has actuated. This means water has leaked through the door gasket.

One way to check is to turn power off and draw the dishwasher out from under the sink. May have to disconnect the electric and water inlet.

Tilt the dishwasher to one side and wait for about 1 hour. Try the power on and see if the beep goes away.
You can access this switch by opening the chassis. It is item 5 on page 10 of this parts catalog. You can use a hair dryer to dry the circuit board.

If no help then you have to call the technician as there is not much service information readily available for this model.

See this user manual if you do not have one.

F1 Code for both Drawers


F1 could mean several problems. However when it occurs on both drawers it means the flood switch at base of dishwasher under the bottom drawer has triggered. This is caused by water leakage. Make sure the dishwasher mains power is turned off to avoid damage to dishwasher. You can attempt to dry the water and find the cause of the leak. Usually foaming due to incorrect or too much detergent, leaky lid seal or hoses broken.

Hello, I have a Fisher and Paykel DD603I and both drawers have a red light on the play/pause button and won't stop beeping. Can you please help me with a solution to this problem?


Hello,
It sounds like the dishwasher is in flood mode. You would need to dry up the water in the base pan and test. The link below is a video that explains how to repair your fisher paykel dishwasher.

F1 in F&P 2 drawer dishwasher


You will need to be a bit more specific when you say "no flood".

Are you having this F1 fault in one or both drawers?

What did the engineer do when he was there last time?

Does the F1 code flash with beeps?

What happens when you turn the mains power off and on after a short delay?

Please provide the actual model number of your fisher and paykel 2 drawer dishwasher.

Hi Both drawers show error F1 flashing beeping with rinse light on and both pumps run after power is applied to machine


F1 error indicates flood switch in base has activated, meaning machine has leaked. This causes machine to drain continously, and can only be stopped by switching off power. Not easy to fix if you don't have experience- bottom drawer has to be removed to access flood switch, then machine needs to be test run and checked for leaks. Best to call the professionals!!

We have the Q 2 drawer dishwasher stopped working.


the f1 is the flood sensor....a leak has accured....either a dish to larger or lid motor has failed. will need to remove bottom drawer and soak up water and then let air dry for a day or two....turn off the breaker this will keep it from beeping and running the pumps....after drying unit will run, but need to watch the dishes you put in drawers.
