F1 fault shows flood switch activated, how to fix??


Answers :

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. As you know
F1 error means that the flood switch has been activated.You’ll need to reset it by powering off the breaker or by unplugging the unit from the power socket and mains for more than five minutes. Please check that there is no blockage in the drain hose and it is not raised higher otherwise the water will run back to the dishwasher. Also perform the following procedure---
\015\012
    \015\012
      \015\012
    • Unplug power and remove bottom dish drawer
    • \015\012
    • Use a Sponge and dry all the excess water underneath
    • \015\012
    • Remove circuit board cover
    • \015\012
    • Dry all around and underneath as much as possible
    • \015\012
    • Apply hairdryer for 10-15min

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Hello. The flood switch is under the tub. You will need a big syringe and a long tube to get under there where there is still water causing the flood switch to be activated. Joe

I recently had the e4 error code on my new world dw60 dishwasher. I have since opened it up and replaced the heater element, which appears to have resolved that issue. However, in the process of doing this I incorrectly installed the flood switch back into place, meaning that it was in its closed position (i.e. the position it would be when activated by a flooded base) when I went to turn the dishwasher back on. I have since opened it back up and correctly installed the flood switch, but I ca

My question is this: once the flood activation switch (F1 error code) has been activated due to water in the tray, will the switch self-set once the lower board area has dried sufficiently, or does it require a board replacement? I have found (I think), and will be correcting the leak, but wanted to make sure the water sensor is healthy or not.

I have a similar problem to another person. The drain on the dish drawer was blocked. The unit now shows an F1 error code ( flood?) and the pump runs continuously even after I've unblocked everything. I've tried switching it off for ages and drying everything out. When I switch it on again it shows the wash programme but then reverts to F1 and the pump motor runs continuously. Any ideas to cancel the F1 code?
