Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

AFTER A BRIEF POWER OUTAGE DUE TO ELECTRICAL STORM THE F1 CODE FLASHES AND PUMP RUNS CONTINUOUSLY. TURNING POWER OFF ONLY STOPS IT FOR SEVERAL SECONDS. TURNING OFF POWER TO DW AND BACK ON DOES NOT RESET. I HAVE REMOVED THE BOTTOM DRAWER AND CHECKED FOR WATER, BUT UNIT IS DRY. IS THERE ANOTHER WAY TO RESET THE SWITCH?


Answers :

Hi there,

The f1 fault is cased by a leak on the dishwasher.
It is activated when water gets to a dangerous level in the base of the appliance near to the PCB.

The main reason this happens is putting cups on the drop down shelves and when the lid comes down to seal the drawer it can't and leaks. If you look at the drawer when open there is a lip around it, if anything is proud of this lip the lid will not shut properly.

You need disconnect the power and remove the bottom drawer and the dry up all the water in the base. If you leave the appliance long enough it will dry out by itself.

Once you have done this and the problem still comes back you will need and engineer as there is a problem with the lid motors or the seal’s.

Hope this helps

The tap does supply water I've check and with more than sufficent flow and pressure! ...Help .....Thanks Gary


Hello Gary,\015\012\015\012You didn't specify the brand or model number of the dishwasher, but I suspect it's a Bosch, in which case the E:15 error with the flashing tap sign and the drain pump running continuously means the anti-flood pr ... Dishwashers

I have a General Electric Potscrubber dishwasher. When the cycle is finished, the water does not drain into the sink.I turned the unit upside down to look into the bottom. The motor turns freely. The instruction sheet I found in the bottom of the unit said to remove the filter screen and check the piston valve. I looked at what I thought was the piston valve, but I'm not sure how to check it. The line to the sink seems to be clear. The model of my unit is GSC3230Z03WW. The serial number is AZ627

Hi, I have a Fisher Paykel DD603I (integrated) dishdrawer unit. The bottom drawer soap dispenser has water in it after it runs (and leftover soap), and there is a small amount of water sitting in the bottom of the drawer. The dishes don't get totally clean. I have removed and cleaned the spray arm, drain filter, filter plate and bottom of tub. Found nothing clogged or particularly dirty. Put all the parts back in and everything moves freely. Ran it empty, and same problem occurred.


Hi Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doe ... Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers

SHX46B I have a 4 year old Dishwasher that filled up with clean water on it's own and leaked on the floor. There appears to ba a float switch switch on the very bottom of the unit that runs the pump if this happens. It won't stop until I remove the water caught in the plastic base on the very bottom of the unit. Drain is clear and this machine has worked fine until now. I'm thinking it may be a bad or leaky fill valve but how can I check?

Bosch Exxcel model number SGS46E12GB had the check water light on a week ago, checked supply and cleaned filters, all good. light still on, got upset and slammed the door, light off. since then the unit will either wash stuff, or not. didn't seem the arms were spraying very well when I opened the door, so I bypassed the door switch tonight and put it through a pre rinse cycle. (I ran it with the bottom filters removed) upshot is the pressure of water was really poor. also, when I first turned

AEG Favorit - model F86050UM The dishwasher was disconnected and moved whilst new timber flooring was being laid. On reconnection it was evident there was some water in the base of the unit, this was removed by tipping the unit over to drain. Now there is no power display on the door.Power outlet checked OK. Your assistance would be appreciated in this seemingly simple problem. Murray


What has happened is that you have tripped the overflow/anti flood device switch when you upended the machine. You most likely need to empty out the salt container, and to reset the antiflood give the machine a few sideways tips and try to shake fre ... AEG Dishwashers

Bottom unit does not always seal and causes water to collect in bottom pan which throw unit into f1 status. Sometimes it stays sealed and is difficult to pull drawer out. Is there a way to reset the unit properly? I know how to pull the drawer and fix the f1 problem but it seem like the seal issue is becoming more frequent. Thanks

My Samsung DMR77LHS dishwasher has lost power completely near the end of a cycle. About an inch of water remains. I have power to the unit. I checked the 15 amp fuse in the unit - it had blown. I replaced it, but still no luck. The fuse is not blowing, but there is no power to panel. Nothing happens when you hit the power button - no lights or anything. Unit acts as if ther is no power at all. I have seen similar posts. Any thoughts?


Hi, whenever a fuse of that magnitude, or any fuse really, Blows, you should never just replace it, as to have any device, blow a fuse, trip a breaker, requires a major fault, they do NOT blow spontaneously ever. So you have had a major short circu ... Samsung DMR77LHS Tall Tub Dishwasher

WP DW Mod # GU1200XTLS0: this unit filled with water and just stopped running. I have power to the unit. The control panel does not light up at all.

Oddly it seems like the line power to DW goes all the way thru the unit and back through the nutural wire. Could the motor windings be burnt out?

The upper and lower dish drawers leaves a puddle of water under each (maybe 6" in diameter) after the shortest cycle. There is a small amout of water left in the clear protective housing on the underside of the upper drawer. There is a hole at the bottom of the housing that lets the water out. Maybe there is a slightly loose hose? If so how do you get the housing off and tighten it? I presume the lower drawer may be doing the same thing, but I can't see it with out removing the drawer.

I own a GE Profile GSD 4330 dishwasher. Recently it has been leaving some water in the bottom of the tub. This water accumulates over time until the entire bottom is filled. I have checked the air vent, garbage disposal unit and the filter in the bottom of the dishwasher (which was filthy). I cleaned the filter and everything else looks okay, but it is still leaving some water in the tub.
