Having problems with your Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers ?

How do I turn off the flood switch sensor on a fisher and Patel double drawer dishwasher


Answers :

Unfortunately there is no way to turn the flood sensor switch off, you need to pull the lower drawer all the way out and check for any water in the base or other items affecting the flood switch, If you have a 601 series you need to pull the 2 round pins out on the front sides of the drawer to enable you to pull the drawer out enough to get to the flood switch, If you have a 603 series you need to push in the 2 locking tabs on the front side of the drawer which will allow you to pull the drawer out enough to check the switch. Make sure you unplug the dishwasher before doing this,

I have the "rinse" error code on my kitchenaid double drawer dishwasher kudd01dppa1. I've turned off the power, then it worked for one load and the code reappeared on both drawers again. What should be a next step? it says in the manual that the "rinse" error code means that something happened to the flood switch...? Can this be fixed without calling out the kitchenaid technicians? thanks

I've had a Miele G892 SCU PLUS dishwasher for a long time. Today a problem started that results in a flooded floor. Water keeps flowing into the dishwasher - even when the unit is turned off. It seeps in very slowly, but within15 minutes there is enough to overflow & flood the floor. My guess is that there must be some kind of sensor that isn't working, or the coresponding mechanical switch that shuts off the water is worn or slightly stuck open a bit? Anything I can do / check, short of the re

The top drawer of my fisher paykel dishwasher stops during the cycle and shows an icon of a tap with a line threw it (assume that means no or low water pressure). the bottom works fine so I assume water pressure is not the issue; is there a sensor that could be bad? Also, I did switch the controllers between drawers (good instructions on the fisherpaykelparts.net website) but the problem stayed with the drawer, ruling out the controller.

I have a Fisher Paykel Dishwasher Model 920 that floods (F1 fault) since the Inlet soloniod was replaced. What determines the water level? I dont see any detectors other than the flood switch sensor in the base.


Just had the same F1 error message. I figured the drain lines were clogged so i hooked my compressor up to them and blew air in the lines for about 5 seconds at 60 psi. It is not giving me the error message anymore and seems to be running fine. ... Dishwashers

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.

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

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 ?
