SOURCE: flood switch fault

Turn the power off.
Open the drawer as far out as possible. get a towel and hair dryer and try to dry the base of the cabinet.

Turn power on and see if fault goes away. If not then you may have to repeat but get the drawer out from the cabinet.

Causes can be several - water leakage from the inlet or drain hoses, kink in the drain hose or broken actuator link that keeps the hoses taut when you pull in/ out the drawers.

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.

Hello

Most faults can be referred to the fact that the Anti Flood Overflow device has activated.

Modern day dishwashers like those manufactured that have a built in safety feature protecting the dishwasher against flooding. The technical term is 'Anti Flood Device'.

In the base of the dishwasher in the plinth there is a float switch. This is your 'Anti Flood Device'. In the event of your dishwasher over filling, the plinth fills with water, the float rises and actuates the switch.

Firstly, it will send a signal to the programmer device to notify there is a fault and output a message in the form of a code to some sort of display.

Secondly, the pressure switch acts as the water level indicator for the sump of the dishwasher so when the water level rises the pressure switch will activate the drain pump.

So before you consider throwing good money at new dishwasher, try doing a bit of fault finding your self and you might save yourself a ton of money.

Hi - unfortunately my good friend it cannot be reset as one would like quite easily anyhow... water has found its way to the base of the drwaers and have activated the flooding switch - one could pull it apart to dry it - tip the water out from the base but if the leaks not repaired you will have the same problem later and will be on-going.

Error Code FL


The FL (Over Fill) error code indicates that the flood pressure switch is open (tripped). It is likely that you are getting the LD (Long Drain) fault code because the control detects that the flood pressure switch will not reset after running the drain pump. Your likely failure is in the flood pressure switch

Tapping on the flood pressure switch with the handle of a screw driver may reset it. Reassemble the washer and see if it will work properly. If not, then you will need to replace the flood pressure switch. The part number for the flood pressure switch is 8054767. You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the flood pressure switch is 8054767.

F1 fault shows flood switch activated, how to


Hello there
This is how i did mine
saved about 300 dollars
First thing I did was pull the front panel off the drawer, batch%2010-23-04%200031.jpg
Fisher Paykel DD602 dishdrawer with the front panel removed.
With that front panel off, I pulled the wire harness connectors off the main control board (lower right-hand side) to inspect for gookus. None found--my quest continued.
The next step to remove the botton drawer from the unit so I could inspect the flood switch. In order to do this, I had to remove the wire harness cover on the underside of the drawer. This is what the underside of the dishdrawer looks like with the botton cover panel removed:
batch%2010-23-04%200041.jpg
Fisher Paykel DD602 dishdrawer, looking at the underside of one of the drawers with the wire cover plate removed.
With the bottom cover off, I could unclip the wire harness, fill hose, and drain hose. Then I unclipped the linkage at the back of the drawer and lifted the drawer off the slider arms. All this to expose the flood switch, shown on the left-hand side of the bottom panel in the picture below:.
batch%2010-23-04%200051.jpg
Fisher Paykel DD602 dishdrawer with the lower drawer removed. The flood switch in mounted on the base, left hand side.
After noting the positions of the wires on the flood switch and removing them, I unclipped the switch housing from the base panel. The switch housing contains one switch for each drawer. The switches are wired normally closed (NC) and each switch has three spade connections, so it's important to note where the wires went. With the switch housing out, I could ohm out both switches and both checked good. I inspected the contacts and noticed that one of them was oxidized, evidenced by discoloration.
and clean off the contacts. That'll restore the current flow for that circuit. ." So I cleaned the contacts and reassembled the dishdrawer. I ran the top drawer and...no F1 error code! I ran it several more times just to be sure.

FI error message from both drawers. We had a


F1 indicates flood fault. There is no reset, machine thinks it has flooded. If machine was running OK until electrical storm, then it could have shorted the mains filter control board (DD603 models-this mains filter board also acts as flood switch), although this is unlikely to have shorted. More common is dishwasher has had a leak causing F1 fault, or corrosion on mains filter board . Open bottom drawer and shine torch underneath to see if there is any water in the base of the cabinet- if yes, machine has leaked and activated flood switch. If not, flood switch board may be faulty.
Unfortunately, access to this flood switch control is permitted only by removal of the bottom drawer- recommend calling technician unless very keen!! If keen, read on!!
-To remove drawer- there is a tag at the bottom front on each side of drawer when you open it -just below the round plastic plug. You need to push this tag in and slide backwards on each side, then drawer will lift out-Careful as hoses and wiring still attached, but long enough to allow access. Mains filter control board is located under plastic cover at left rear- press tag on plastic cover and slide to the right- you will now see small electronic board. This is the mains filter board that doubles as the flood switch. It is held in place by 1 screw- you need to remove wires from board before removing it). Check circuit board for corrosion or evidence of short circuit- if so, replace circuit board.
Good luck, but advise seeking professional help unless you very confident!!

Pump continuing to run -Asko D3100


Micro switch was actually faulty,moisture had entered the switch and caused internal tracking and shorting out the micro switch ,making the pump run continually as it thought it was still in flood mode.
Flood appears to have been caused by a pin hole in the water fill hose in the base of the dishwasher,causing water to spray on the micro switch and eventually biuld up in the base of the machine.
