Having problems with your Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers ?

Fisher Paykel Double Drawer DD601v2. Half way thru a cycle the alarm went on both drawers even though the top one was not inuse or switched on. The error on both drawers is F1. If we push the power button on both after a few seconds they both start up making a whirring noise and both drawers flashing. We have to unplug the machine to stop the irritation. What is wrong and how can we mere mortals fix it ?


Answers :

Hi,

The F1 error means that the sensor that is located in the pan at the bottom of the machine has sensed water.

It does not want either machine to run with a leak so it will shut down the operation of both drawers.

First thing to check is if there is water under there or not. If you open the bottom drawer all the way you should be able to peek behind the back of it and see the 'floor' of the dishwasher. The sensor is near the back under a plastic cover.

If you do not see water the sensor board has failed. It is not too hard to replace but takes a bit of time and patience.

If you do see water then the hunt begins, you will have to find the source, it could be the lid seal or one of the hoses, but since the top drawer was running that would be the place to start. Let me know how far you feel comfortable in taking this and I will walk you through what I know.

Hi :) Hope you can help. I have a double drawer fisher & paykel dishwasher. In the middle of the night a couple of weeks ago it started up making very loud whirring noises. We could not turn the power off, my flatmate who is an electrician had to remove the fuse to get it to turn off. We have never had problems with it previously. Is this common? Pls help. Thank you. Donna.

Maytag mdb9150 dishwasher stopped at some point last night--found it this morning with flashing lights--I think "clean" and "heated dry", not sure.  I used "drain/off" to make sure there was mechanical noise--there was, so I don't think the machine is dead.  Purchased on 2001 with 5 year warranty, so out of luck there.  I tried turning off the electricity to the unit for a few hours; nothing improved.  When you start it (or think you have!) it makes noises for about a minute that sound promising

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!

Both dish drawers emit loud wails ( almost siren like) when started. Repairmen have not figured it out. It happened in the lower dishdrawer first and the impeller was replaced. This did nothing. Now the top drawer makes even louder noise when the wash cycle seems to start.

I have a mdd8000aws dishwasher. After a power outage (2 days) the power came back on, and the bottom drawer no longer works. It still make the chiming noise when the drawer is opened, but the control panel is not fully lit up and the washer will not start in any mode. The lights seem to flicker for a short moment and then they all stay very lightly lit up. Is this just a bad control panel or is there some other circuit that needs replaced? BTW, the top drawer works perfectly.

Service Manual Dear Sir, We are in the UK and although my double drawer dishwasher is branded Whirlpool ADG2900, I see that it is made by Fisher & Paykel. The top drawer motor started making a different noise about 3 months ago and now there is some dirty water left in the drawer after the cycle completes. The pots remain dirty. If you could get me the service manual I could try and sort it out. Please help! Thanks, RP.

Baumatic (BKD62SS or BKD62W .3) Dishwasher will not do a normal load but will run in a strange start up mode I found. When I press the power button, select a cycle, then press start the dishwasher will no longer do anything. 5 seconds after pressing start it will make a light hum noise, a little like heating water. After about a minute the dishwasher won't have done anything. It will then beep 30 times with the third led on the set of four (don't know what it means) will flash a lot. The beeps t

Fisher & Paykel DW60. Fault: Will not start regardless of program selected. E.g. if "heavy duty" pressed, only light will flash, if "normal" is pressed, only this light will flash etc. All hoses (water and drain) have been checked and no crimps or blockages found at either end. All usual methods tried (e.g. cleaning strainers and filters, turning power off for a while etc). Finally, while lights are working, the machine makes no noise at all when a pogram is selected.

When I start the dishwasher, it sounds normal. A few minutes after it starts, it makes a loud, thumping noise that lasts for several minutes. After a while, it stops making noise, but about half way through the cycle, it starts making the loud, thumping noise again. It's loud, annoying, and does not get our dishes clean. We have to wash several dishes by hand AFTER we have run the dishwasher.

Hi I have a mdb6601awb maytag dishwasher. Sometimes when it starts the wash cycle it will make a loud squelling noise. Then if you pull on the handle and stop it, the machine will start and sometimes the noise will be gone. Or you may have to do this 3 or 4 times before it will stop making the squelling noise. I do notice when I pull up on the handle to stop the machine it makes some clicking noises and then the noise goes away. Thank You for any help you may be able to give me!!!
