Fisher Paykel Dish Drawer F1 Problem
Posted 07 May 2005 - 07:53 PM
p.s. I got the F1 fault, I believe, when my wife loaded a pointy dish in the bottom of the machine that may have obstructed the spray arm. Just a guess . . .

I'm not sure what F1 is on a dishdrawer, but if you ask in the AUS/US forums on UKW (see sig) one of the Whirlpool boys on there will know for sure.
What I can tell you is that if you put cups or glasses on the top trays, the fold up ones for *cups*, that are too tall the lid doesn't close right and it can cause a leak. Invariably this can lead to a very expensive electronic control card needing replaced as it's shot.

- Lid not sealing correctly.
- Water level in tub too high.
- Leaking water inlet valve.
- Dishdrawer not priming correctly.
- Split spray arm.
- Spary arm not turning freely.
- Water leak from the drain hose.
- Water leaking around the heater plate o-rings.
- Drain hose partially blocked or restricted.
- Condensation around the chassis flood switch PCB.

Unplug it and dry all the water below the bottom drawer - then see if it's any happier.
The heater ring and electronic control module are both pretty wimpy on this model.
They are surrounded by - and destroyed easily by water.
These are beasts for the home handyman.
If drying and resetting does not do it.
I would call samauri and pay his planefare to repair it.

To remove the cover, push in the clip in the middle front edge of the cover with a flat blade screwdriverand slide the cover foward a bit, then put the screwdriver under the clip and twist up, the cover should now pull off to the right. Spend a couple of minutes drying the board with a hair dryer and mop up any remaining water ( be careful of the board again). Refit the cover and switch back on ( you shouldn't need to force the cover on, just slide it on from right to left , but you may have to push down the cover just above the clip to get it to lock once it is located correctly). If it doesn't F1 again ,all good, if it does , remove cover and redry, and repeat until it doesn't.
To refit drawer, slide out L.h. rail and sit drawer on it, then lift right side of drawer and slide out other rail and sit other side down. If the rails don't want to slide foward and lock, lift the drawer at the front while sliding the rail fowarduntil the front edge of the rail is just at the clipping gap at the side of the drawer, then make sure the drawer is sitting down firmly on the rails and pull clips foward to lock. If the drawer has been clipped in correctly it will slide in and out nicely, if not , look at the back edge of the drawer when it is fully open to see where it is sitting too high and rectify by refitting the rail on the affected side/sides. By this point if any part of the bottom drawer was broken ,you would have seen it. Also check the top drawer by releasing it and pulling it foward,shine torch in and have a good look.
Hopefully it won't leak again unless ther is a faulty part not visible to the naked:shock: eye, check by running one drawer for a couple of minutes, stop the cycle and open the drawer and check the outsides for water ( don't be too worried if you see water in the bottom between the drawers as it will drip from the roof, unless the drain or fill hoses are split ) ,if ok, run the other drawer and check.
Remember, if you get to a point where you don't feel confident with what you doing or you think you might break something, leave it and call a professional to do the job, you may save money in the long run and if you going to expose wires or connections always switch off and unplug before removing the cover, you dont know whats underneath:poison:.
I hpoe this helps someone.

I was sad and thought i was going to have to trash my Fisher & Paykel Dishdrawer after only 2 years of loyal service, which is totally pants quite honestly! It was making an awful beeping noise, but after reading the actions mentioned regarding how to clear the fault, i'm now going to be happy again, once i've dried it out!

I did as you instructed Master, and all went well. I was thrilled, but pride come before a fall and I come again to seek enlightenment.
I ran through the instructions and popped everything back together. As planned no nasty beeping and I put the bottom unit on to a 12 minute cycle. I let it run to the end and no issues.
I proceeded to repeat with the top unit. Sadly, about a minute or two into the cycle water started pouring out of the RHF corner. I opened the drawer and found the top edge of the unit to be very wet on the RHS. The LHS was much dryer. I have removed the upper unit and the inside of the chassis is soaking, but only on the RHS. It appears that the lid or top is not closing properly on that side. (At this stage both units were empty, so no chance of a large object holding the lid up and preventing a seal.)

guess what,he IS a repairman !!! and how much did he charge you?? not enough if you haven't yet donated to the beer fund.
Thanks so much for the instructions -- my husband followed them and everything works! I can only imagine what a repairman would have charged!

So, does the double beeping indicate anything? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Phone F+P customer services local office PH# (should be availiable on the web site, but the Canada # is 1-888-936-7872 ). Ask them to send you 2 link supports, and they might just do it!! It always pays to do both at the same time as the new style support is much stronger.
