Touch sensitive buttons on my

Hi,
If water is in the bubble, you will not be able to change cycle. Open drawer, hit power, close drawer, reopen drawer and try again. If water is in bubble your your finger is wet, the board cannot sense your finger. This button is not s button, its a sensor, just slid your finger across, its designed to detect your current in your body, not the touch of a finger.
Good Luck I’m happy to help further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/gere_bf68e6055dd61249

F1 code. No water left in machine nor on the

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... Please post back if you need more information.

My F&P Nautilus d/washer shows

Hi David - most of the F & P diswahers are accessible thru the bottom front panels or the side panels. The flood switch is located on the base plate of the dishwasher the chances are there is a leak somewhere which you need to sort otherwise it will come back to haunt you again.

Its a NC circuit - what happens the H2O cause the foam to rise activates the microswitch into a NO position hence the F1 error...

Have fun

Have Kleenmaid "Super silent system"

Dishwasher Doesn't Fill

1) First make sure the water is turned on. Check the hot-water supply stop valve, normally located under the sink. Open it all the way by turning it counterclockwise. If there is no reason this would have been turned off since the last time the dishwasher worked, go on to the next step.

2) Turn off the power to the dishwasher.

3) When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher; this is usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring-loaded).

Lift out the float mechanism, and clean around the float tube. Many floats must be disconnected from below; to do this you'll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, replace it in the tube, and make sure it moves up and down freely.

4) If you're experienced with minor repair work, shut off the hot-water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher's bottom front panel; disassemble the valve to reveal the screen; clean debris from the screen; and reassemble. If the screen doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson (he or she will probably need to replace the water intake valve).

5) If none of this helps, call a repairperson. Any of several parts-including the water inlet valve, pressure switch, and the timer or selector switch-may be faulty.

I have a Fisher and Paykel Dish Drawer dishwasher.

it is likely the lid seal is stuck. You will have to get the drawer out and check the underside of the cabinet at the top.

The lid seal is a rubber lining which is actuated by a pair of motors. If the motors are faulty or the power is to the motors is lost, then the seal will not go up to let the drawer sit properly.;

What does f1 mean

The F1 error refers to 'internal flood.'
You may wish to reset the power of the unit, this may clear the error code.

One common cause is too much or 'wrong' detergent causing too many suds. In this case, giving the unit time and a reset is all you need to do.

You may wish to check under the unit to look for a tray with a widget floating in it. If you find such a tray, empty it & cycle the power to reset the F1 error.

I hope that helps.

Troubleshooting problem with two drawer fisher & payke dishwasher

F1 is a flood code and is an indicator that water has escaped from one or both drawers. It is usually caused by placing too tall of a dish in the drawer or from failed parts such as the older style "link supports" or a faulty lid motor. It also can be a chronic problem if the machine is not installed correctly.

Hi. Our DS603I dishwasher starts

Dishwasher Repair Guide: How To Fix a Dishwasher - ACME HOW TO.com
http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/ecart/item.php?item_id=244
sounds to me as though you have a main controller or indeed some sensor has failed, with this symptom is it a bit hard to exactly pin it down.. The best thing to do if you wish to DIY, is obtain a service and repair manual, and work through the troubleshooting steps to isolate your issue with a view to repair, also the SM has parts numbers too.
The below may NOT apply to you... however it has helped many many times...so if you think it is worth a try... give it a go.. nothing to loose?
so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle.This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

Flooding in both drawers of

I suppose "flooding in both drawers of ..." implies water is not draining out. Is that right?

It is a very little information to give you any clear solutions.

Did the water get into the drawers without starting any wash program? Most likely it is the backflow from kitchen sink back through the dishwasher drain hose. Does your kitchen sink plumbing have an air gap sowehere. If so, is it clear?

If the water is the back flow then it is likely to be smelly and you do not want to run it through the dishwasher. I would suggest take the drain hose out from under the sink downpipe and drop into an empty bucket. Then take all the fixtures out from the drawers and empty out water using a small container.

Put the washer arms back and run each drawer on a short rinse cycle collecting the drain water in the bucket. If cycle runs clear, then get plumber to check the kitchen downpipe.

Reconnect drain hose.

Hope this helps.
