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.

WHICH BUTTONS DO I PRESS
Just run the shortest wash cycle and check if it empties in the end. If not, then you have some blockage in the filter sump.
Go to the part of the user guide which explains how to clean drain filter and filter plate.
Hope this solves the problem.

Fisher paykel drawer dishwasher is stuck open and
Hey I dont know if you have this problem, but with mine the gasket seemed to be blocking the opening, so you could close it, but you had to shove a lot. The FP help line said to just unplug and replug in the unit. I did it and lo and behold it worked fine again. It did seem to leak a little bit the first time I reran it, but that seems to have gone away. Hope this helps

F1 code on Fisher and Paykel dishdrawer
Just had the same problem, removed the excess water from the drawers, turned off the power, removed the bottom drawer by pushing in the lugs at the bottom of the drawer where it butts up to the drawer front and pulling out the drawer. Then had to mop up with 4 t-towels and half a roll of kitchen roll the water in the bottom of the machine housing. The water gets into the electronics at the rear of the housing and obviously warns you of this by the F1 code?. I removed the white cover over the electronics with a screwdriver by pushing it into a slot then sliding the cover across to the right, it is indicated on the cover how to remove it. I also then removed the screw on top of the PCB (printed circuit board) and lifted up the grey plastic base and wiped under that and the under side of the PCB. The PCB unclips on the left hand end of it and lifts out, try not to pull the cables out though. I then used a hair dryer as suggested by someone else on here to dry out any excess that you could not wipe dry, my daughters Hello Kitty hair dryer didn't last long though, she's not impressed! So try not to stick the dryer right in the housing to avoid overheating it. About 5 minutes did the trick for me, then re-assembled everything, turned it on and hey presto! It worked!!!! Its not that hard, good luck!!!

How to replace fisher and paykel dishdrawer inlet hose
Thank you so much to Greg for his advice. I had pulled out the motor and put back in with no result but after reading his post, I found that the tube from the sump to the pump was blocked and once that was cleared, all good. Saved me the cost of a serviceman as the last dishes that I had washed had fish so the water was rapidly becoming rancid and I had to solve the problem quickly.
