Does it open the lid?... and does the display flash, as if paused?... if so, just clean the closed sensor lenses, top right hand corner of the drawer, and the little piece of plastic they shine into on the housing.

Craig, we had virtually the same situation.  The repair man  came and it took 2 minutes to fix.  The problem was that the bottom drawer had not been used for a couple of years and thus the impellor had jammed.  to fix it take out the basket, lift off the rotor arm and unscrew the knob.  Then just work the impellor around with your fingers until it frees.  It then worked perfectly.  We will use the bottom often from now on to prevent this happening again. By now the left over pumpkin pie will be a bit green!!

Just run the shortest wash cycle and check if it empties in the end. If not, then you have some blockage in the filter sump.

Go to the part of the user guide which explains how to clean drain filter and filter plate.

Hope this solves the problem.

You cannot disable, as in turn off, permanently, but you can turn off with the power (left most) button and then lock the control (right most button) by pressing and holding it for approx. 3-5 seconds. The lock symbol will illuminate. Now the lower drawer cannot be operated - unless the lock is released. You cannot disconnect the lower drawer as this will cause a U4 or similar error and both drawers will shut off.

There are no wires underneath the rotor - it is just suspended in the cavity. So you cannot do any damage except make scratches around that area. Maybe take a straightened wire coat hanger and insert from the side hole in the filter sump area. You might be able to push the rotor up to an extent and then grab it with pliers.

Fault code F5 is a lid fault error. It could be one of many issues and generally will need a technician to fix it. The problem could as simple as the lid seal that seals the drawer being displaced or the actuator motors that bring the seal down being faulty. Turn the mains power off to the dishwasher and back on. This should bring the actuator motors to start position. If this does not fix it then check under the top housing for any signs of lid seal break. If it looks ok then you have to call technician to fix it. The fix involves taking the drawer out carefully without damaging the wiring and hoses underneath and checking the lid seal assembly underside of dishwasher housing.

The Problem is Related to the Dishdrawers Motherboard Control Center This usually happens when water condensation sits on the board to long and Short Circuits controls.

In order to reach MOST of its components front facia have to come off. (so you can remove its bottom cover under the drawer).
This machine is VERY sensitive to leaks, so be very careful!

Fault code F1 can come from a number of different sources and can remain on as long as the machine has power (does not need to be operating). Once a fault is repaired it can be cleared by pressing the Power button. If the fault is still present then it will not
clear. The service manual says: The faults are displayed in the LCD as one of 5 F (fatal) faults or 1 U (user) fault along with the symbol of a spanner. A fatal fault will usually require the assistance of a qualified service person...

Fault Code Description:
Fault Code: F1
LED Display: Rinse LED
Fault: The flood switch has been activated for more than six seconds
Possible Causes
_ Inlet hose to inlet valve connection loose
_ Inlet valve body leak
_ Damage to the fill or drain hoses
_ Heater plate damage (chipped enamel)
_ Seals/O Rings (pinched, contaminated or poor join)
_ Dispenser (seal, diverter valve or weld leak)

Not sure if you have managed to fix the F1 problem with your dishdrawer. This is a common problem and occurs mainly due to water leaking into the base of the dishdrawer under the bottom drawer.
But if it is occuring only in one drawer then the power filter at the base of dishdrawer is faulty and needs replacement.

Otherwise make sure the mains power to dishdrawer is turned off. Pull out the bottom drawer and stack in some towels behind it if you can to remove the moisture sitting on the base. The flood switch is located there. Then take a hair dryer and run it down behind the drawer to dry things. Push drawer back and turn power back on. Now if you cannot reach the back of the drawer then you will have to pull the drawer out from its rail. Refer the installation manual for this. See link page 7.

Hi Anonymous, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Please describe the problem.

Fisher and... | Answered on Jul 31, 2014


Try disconnecting power to the dishwasher by turning the circuit breaker off. Leave power off for 15 minutes or so then power back up. Try the program and switch again. Sometimes this procedure reboots the program and solves the problem.
