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.

Well I have a Fisher & Paykel Nautilus single door Dishwasher about 10 years old or more. All of a sudden we started getting F1 error and what sounded like a pump trying to pump out water. I read these posts the poured water in bottom of dishwasher and it sucked the water out, but pump kept running. I took the metal filter out from inside base of machine and cleaned it ...was dirty. oops... then tilted machine and water drained out of somewhere in the bottom of machine....put everything back and its now working perfectly. Thanks for all those that gave me the guidance..YOU ROCK!

SOURCE: The flood switch has been activated on our Fisher

Turn off the main power to the dishwasher.

I am assuming you are getting F1 error code flashing (if your drawers have LCD display) or the LEDs are flashing if you have intergrated drawers.

The flood switch is located at the base of the drawer tub. You will have to either extend the drawers out fully or take them out depending on the amount of water that would have collected at the base of the tubs. Get some towels and dry the base out. You may also need a hair dryer.

Once the flood switch dries off the drawer should work ok when you turn back the power.

The causes of the flood switch trriggering is either too much foam in detergent (use recommended detergent) or leak in water in or drain pipe.

Flood switch will not reset


The lid seal is damaged and it lets water go through and collect on the flood switch which may be triggering F1.

You will have to replace the lid seal. It is item 8 on page 14 of this diagram.

E6 fault unable to reset all cycle lights showing


E6 is "Flood switch activated."


Turn the water off and disconnect power to the dishwasher, then empty water from the inside. Clean drain well and check the drain hose at the back. If that does not work, then the water pressure switch is at fault. Call your Fisher & Paykel dealer or Authorized Service Center.

Flood switch activated, intermittent beeping, motor will not turn off


Please confirm if it is a single or a double drawer.

How do you know the flood switch is activated? Do you have a display on your dishwasher and what is it showing? If no display then which lights if any on the panel are on?

Motor will not run if flood switch is activated in the fisher paykel drawer dishwwasher.

Fisher and Paykel f1


Hi

Error F1 on your fisher & paykel means an overfill condition. One of the most common causes for an overfill fault is that the dishwasher cannot pump out the dirty water due to a plugged drain hose. Check the drain hose if it is clogged. Now remove the bottom drawer from the unit to inspect the flood switch. Remove the wire harness cover on the underside of the drawer. With the bottom cover off, unclip the wire harness, fill hose, and drain hose. Then unclip the linkage at the back of the drawer and lift the drawer off the slider arms. Now’ you’ll be able to look at the flood switch. Note the positions of the wires on the flood switch and remove them. Then unclip 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. Now clean the contacts and let it dry.
Hope this helps...

Dishwasher dial flashing F1


the flood switch at the base of the dishwasher cabinet has activated. This occurs if moisture has leaked into the base of the dishwasher.
There are several posts on the fixya.com site on causes and solutions.

If unable to find please post a comment and I am happy to guide you on this.

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!!
