Having problems with your Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers ?

It's showing F-1 on front panel of two drawer dishwasher. The front panel on both dishwashers is giving me the F-1's.

\015 In the manual it says to shut off power and water, which I did, and call for service. I've shut off power and water a few times and then turned them on again in the hope the computer would reset. To no avail. Is it significant that both drawers are misbehaving in exactly the same way? We have only been using the top drawer, which we had just cleaner using baking soda. I haven't checked the drain hoses. Could they be plugged?\015

Answers :

F1 in both drawers means the base of the dishwasher (under bottom drawer) has flooded. Not sure what procedure you used to clean the top drawer with baking soda. It is likely there was a leak through the lid seals due to over frothing which has caused the flood switch to trip. If the frothing was minimal then the unit should work again as soon as base dries up. Otherwise you will have to take bottom drawer off and dry the base. Make sure the mains power to dishwasher is turned off before you work inside it.

I have a Fisher and Paykel drawer dishwasher and I'm wondering if there's a way to put a panel on it to make it look like and integrated dishwasher. It would need some way of the panel moving to start the dishwasher because the controls are located on the front. I plan on putting it in an Ikea Akurum that is 24" deep. The dishwasher is 22-9/10 deep, so that looks like it would leave some space for the dishwasher to sit back in the cabinet so the door panel could be flush with the cabinet. I'm no

Dishwasher Leak I found water on the floor in front of my dishwasher one morning so I removed the panel and ran the dishwasher to check for leaks and found none. I did check all the gaskets on the inside and they appeared okay. I again ran the dishwasher and had no leaks at that time, however, the last two mornings after I have found water in front of the dishwasher.

I just purchased a G.E. dishwasher with a black front panel that is glossy. My daughter used a mister clean sponge to clean it and is now full of scratches, is there anything I can use on it to get them out without having to replace the panel. I also have a G.E. frig with a different finish on it, it has a rough texture it never marks or shows finger prints best refrigerate I have ever owned, and was wondering if I could get that finish on the dishwasher door panel.

We have a MDB4651AWW dishwasher. It is very loud, we have the bottom front panel that seals the dishwasher at the floor but cannot figure out how to install it. One way it does not fit, the other way it won't let the door open and close properly. The noise is terrible and it has been that way for three years. We don't believe there is anything wrong with the dishwasher, figure the bottom panel will deaden the sound. can you show us how it goes?

I have a Bosch SHU8805UC/14 dishwasher. I took the front door panel off to install it better but ended up with two extra pieces that look like either part 935400 Door Guard, or 935526 Support. I cannot seem to find any place on the inside of the door where these pieces would fit. The dishwasher works fine but seems like it got noisier after I put it back together without these two parts. Can you help me locate the proper place for these 2 plastic parts?

I have the two drawer dishwasher. It's about 10 years old. The top drawer continues to work OK but for the last three attempts when I run the bottom drawer water gets out into the drip pan below and gives the F1 signal. I can dry the drip pan out and clear the F1 signal so the top drawer works. But running the bottom drawer causes water to leak again with the resultant F1 signal. There is very little water in the bottom drawer (just a little in the filter bowl) so I think the pump is pumping

GE Potscrubber 650 Dishwasher, 13 years old. We want to take the front lower panel off to move the motor fan by hand, as you described for glideston'es post, but we can't figure out how to get the panel off. A repairman told us to remove the three screws at the top of the lower panel -- but they are too close to the upper door panel. The space between the two panels is not big enough to fit a screwdriver or any other tool we can think of. How do we remove the lower panel?

I have a Bauknecht dishwasher GS 835 S purchased in 1986. Since moving it while having kitchen refit there are two small leaks. One is from the hose that goes into the bottom of the machine towards the front, and the other is a drip that comes down between the front facia panel and the machine door. Possibly the door seal is slightly perished? I do not want to pay the earth for callout charges etc; if spares are not available. If they are where can I get them, and will they be very costly. I
