Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

We just installed a Fisher & Paykel DD603 dishwasher. Intially it would not drain correctly. And, proceeded to flood the bottom and set off the F1 error code. I dried out the bottom to get the F1 code to stop, which it did. After adjusting the leveling the dishwasher drained both drawers correctly, once. A few minutes after the rinse cycle had finished and the drawers were empty of water the F1 code started again. Now it will not go away unless I unplug the machine. I dried out the bottom very w


Answers :

HI. The original code(f1) is in reference to a overfill condition. This may be a clogged drainage Assembly. This condition will usually cause the control sector to short out if not corrected, due to the flood switch malfunction. There are flood switches located on the bottom of each drawer. You will need to inspect the flood switch contacts for oxidation(use a ruby red eraser tip for cleaning the flood switch contacts, if needed). You can also check for proper resistance at the switches, as well. If the flood switch ohms out ok and the contacts are free of oxidation, simply clear any obstruction that can be found in the hoses and pump assembly. Clean the fine particle filter, if needed.

  • NOTE_ Try to reset the main control by shutting down the appropriate circuit breaker for five minutes. Once the five minutes are up, re- introduce power to the unit, and try to initiate a command. If the main control board dose not respond after the hard reset, it will need to be replaced, asap.

\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012for using FixYa. F1 error means that the flood switch has been activated. You’ll need to reset it by powering off the\015\012breaker or by unplugging the unit from the power socket and mains for more than\015\012five minutes. Please check that there is no blockage in the drain hose and it\015\012is not raised higher otherwise the water will run back to the dishwasher. Although\015\012you have already dried out the bottom please once again perform the following\015\012procedure---

I have the two drawer dishwasher. It's about 10 years old. The top drawer continues to work OK but for the last three attempts when I run the bottom drawer water gets out into the drip pan below and gives the F1 signal. I can dry the drip pan out and clear the F1 signal so the top drawer works. But running the bottom drawer causes water to leak again with the resultant F1 signal. There is very little water in the bottom drawer (just a little in the filter bowl) so I think the pump is pumping

We just purchased a used Fisher and Paykel DS 603-i. After installing and running the normal cycle there was a lot of water left on the bottom of each drawer. We ran the bottom drawer (water stil siiting on the bottom of the top drawer) and part way through the main wash cycle we got what I think was a F1 error code (we do not have the LCD version but the Rinse light was activated). I took out the bottom drawer, dried out the basin and then took out the washer and reattached the drainage pipes t

I have a dishdrawer (2) and following the use of a dishwasher cleaner, the bottom drawer appears to have developed a blockage. It will not empty, gets to the pump out part of the cycle and shows the red error code F3, to which there is no reference in the trouble shooting guide. The top drawer has also developed minute leak, sufficient enough to leave dribble marks on the lower drawer and over time, a white deposit on the floor. Is there anything we can do for the blockage problem before reso

Hi My F&P dishdrawer flooded. Dried it all out etc, the top drawer doesn't complete the cycle and it beeps continually even when it's not running.

I have a 13 month old Bosch SHE58c dishwasher. The pump runs constantly and will not refill the tank. There are no error codes thrown on the control panel, but not sure there are error codes for this model - the manual doesn't mention any. So I have removed the side panel and can see the bottom pan is bone dry and I made sure the overflow drain switch was not bound and operates freely. Is there some type of reset button or other task I can perform to continue troubleshooting this problem? Repair

I have a maytag jetclean quiet pack dishwasher. The top dishes are not getting clean. The glasses always have sandy residue in them and sometimes orange juice etc at the bottom of the glass isn't removed. I have added jet dry, this doesnt work. I ran the rinse cycle today and opened it up during the cycle and I didn't see the middle pop up spin thing in the middle of the bottom shelf doing anything. It should be spraying during the rinse cycle correct? Thanks for your help
