Having problems with your Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers ?

An F1 code is appearing on my fisher and pakel dishwasher because I put in washing up liquid in it instead of dishwasher powder


Answers :

F1 means that the flood switch has activated, You need to check for water in the base of the dishwasher, You can pull the dishwasher out and tilt it backward and you will see water coming out the back lower corner if there is water in there, If you remove most of it this way the heat from the operation of the dishwasher will dry out the rest but the best option it to get in there and dry it out, Just be sure to unplug it first.

One other additional cause depending on exact model of dishwasher is it may have soap suds in the pressure tube and the electronics have not registered a change in water level because of this, To fix this issue you need to remove the tube from the pressure sensor and blow down it back into the sump of the dishwasher.

I have a fisher & Pakel dishwasher and it appears to have brown a fuse inside the machine which means it does not work at all and the problem occurred during the wash cycle. This means the seal (which is a top piece that's lifted and lowered by two motors. When the seal is in the lowered position it creates a complete seal but it also locks the drawer (single drawer dishwasher) so it cannot be pulled out. I repaired the dishwasher two years ago.
