Having problems with your Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher ?

Hi f1 label is lit up in red on both washers and is making a alarm sound wont turn off


Answers :

F1 = The flood switch has been activated for more than six seconds.

The flood switch is in the bottom of the whole unit, so it will have water in the tray of the carcass.
It will dry out eventually (or you can pull out the unit and tip the unit to empty the water), then the unit will stop beeping. However, it will just do it again unless you address the cause, which is any of the following:

Inlet\015\012 hose to inlet valve connection loose
Inlet valve body leak
Damage\015\012 to the fill or drain hoses
Heater plate damage (chipped enamel)
Seals/O\015\012 Rings (pinched, contaminated or poor join)
Dispenser (seal, diverter\015\012 valve or weld leak)
Lid area (lid motors not functioning correctly, \015\012lid off yoke or foreign object interfering with lid seal).

It's most often the last one.
A 603 drawer can leak - and cause an F1 - just \015\012during normal use.
Because the lid comes down after shutting the \015\012draw, if the user has stacked a pan or utensil in the draw that almost \015\012touches the top, it can prevent the lid from coming down and making the \015\012seal. So it will leak just for that wash.

This scenario never \015\012happened with the 601 models because they didn't have a lid that came \015\012down to make a seal. (They solved one problem but caused another!)

Alternatively...
On\015\012 a 603 model, the lids get wound down when you close the draw. It's \015\012possibly a dead lid-seal motor. There are 2 worm-drive motors on either \015\012side, connecting to the lid via a yoke. F&P cocked up with the \015\012earlier 603 and used poor quality motor drives. These earlier inferior \015\012ones are beige in colour, whereas F&P recommend replacing with a \015\012superior black coloured drive. If yours are beige, it's quite likely \015\012that you might need to replace both or just one.

The dishwasher makes a humming sound when turned on. No matter what cycle it is turned to, it continues the humming sound and does nothing else. I thought I could reset it by unplugging it, but as soon as it is turned on again, it continues the humming sound.

My Delonghi Dishwasher keeps turning off. The dishwasher is turned on at the power point. The water is turned on. Okay When I press the POWER botton on the front it wont stay on. I have to keep my finger on the POWER button and then press the START button for washer to work. If I do this it will then pump out any water in the bottom and start to work. ***BUT when you take your finger of the POWER button the washer just turns off and stops working. Do you have any idea what could be the problem p

Motor makes noise shortly after starting, makes normal sound level during main body of wash, then makes noise again during what I'm guessing is the rinse cycle. Not sure if it is a pump or motor problem. Slight electrical smell noticed after finishing the ''cancel/drain''. Water does not seem to be sprayed around washer during normal cycle, even though water has been in the washer.


Make sure the sprayer arm is turning freely, check for something stuck in the base of the sprayer arm (food or utinsel) preventing it from turning. ... Dishwashers

I have a Siemens Dishwasher. I'm not sure of the model but it is built in, has concealed controls and was purchased about 6 years ago at Best Buy. It sort of looks like the SL85. When started, it runs for a few minutes and then starts to make a horrible sound. ALmost a grinding sound but may also be like water trying to get through a small opening. The sound does not stop even after turning off the DW and even the power to it. Only turning off the water supply does it stop. Help?

Hi. Our DS603I dishwasher starts on the Rinse cycle on its own - it beeps, red light flashing and no water entering the tub. It does this even if it is open. Similarly, when we try to turn it on to do a normal or heavy cycle, it starts (making quiet a loud noise) and then goes to the Rinse cycle, beeping, red light flashing, no water going into the tub. The pump wheel is turning. We can't find any blockages in the tubes. We have power-cycled it many times. Please help!
