F 1 is a flood code meaning excess amounts of water have collected on the bottom catch basin.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The E4 error on your dishwasher indicates an overfill has occurred. This can potentially occur due to excessive detergent (accumulitive over time) or mineral deposit in the filters and sump as well.

**Your dishwasher has an overfill protection device which could automatically shut off the inlet valve and starts the drain pump if the water overflows and subsequently display the error. If this occurs, turn off the main water supply before calling a qualified service agent. If there is water in the base pan because of an overfill or small leak, the water should be removed before restarting the dishwasher. This can be done by way of tilting it back (while unplugged of course) and allowing the water to drain from the base**

NOTE: Hard Water conditions will adversely affect wash ability performance of your dishwasher. Hard Water conditions will also contribute to "Lime" (white film substance deposits and/or "Scaling" on the stainless steel surface of the dishwasher tub and "Heater Element" located in the sump underneath the removable filter screen. To assist in minimizing these conditions, it is recommended to periodically operate/rinse the inside of the dishwasher (empty) using 1 cup of white vinegar (at least once a week).

Let me know how this works for you and I'll try to assist you further if necessary. Good luck and thank you for choosing FixYa.

Hello, We have a Fisher & Paykel dishwasher m# dd602 znwn showing After we fixed a hole in the drain line an F1 code still appears and the pump keeps running. What should I do from here?

F1 means that your dishwashers have flooded. You can download the video in the link below to see how to get rid of the error and fix your dish drawer for numerous other problems. If your drawer is noisy you may want to replace the rotors at this time as well.

Hi Both drawers show error F1 flashing beeping with rinse light on and both pumps run after power is applied to machine

F1 error indicates flood switch in base has activated, meaning machine has leaked. This causes machine to drain continously, and can only be stopped by switching off power. Not easy to fix if you don't have experience- bottom drawer has to be removed to access flood switch, then machine needs to be test run and checked for leaks. Best to call the professionals!!
