Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, I can help you with this. You have water under the lower drawer from a leak or most likely an overflow due to a blocked drain pump. Remove the lower drawer by pressing in on the side tabs and lifting the drawer up and off the rails, then to the left. You can then remove the water in the machine base pan. This will resolve the F1 error code. Then you will need to run the machine and see if it will drain. If not remove the pump and go from there. If it drains ok, check for leaks. Let me know if you end up needing the pump part number or if you have any other questions.
Thanks. Dad will be here in a minute to try and see how he goes
What is the lower drawer? Is it the metal panel on the bottom at the front?
no problem, let me know what you find.
Or do you mean the wire rack?
Some units are two drawers on top of another
This must be a single, then
Its just a standard looking dishwasher
This is not he drawers version?
No it doesnt have draws
Sorry I misread the model number. You will need to remove the kick-panel on this version and find the leak.
The kick panel is below the door.
OK - will do that. Should it be easy to find the problem?
It may not be. If the fault is not caused by the flood switch (water in the base pan), then it could be the heater or the water temp sensor. At that point I would call a pro.
Sorry, I have to go. I'll let another tech help you further. Please post and it will be seen by all techs. Thanks
Is anyone able to help me further
We've pulled the kick plate off, shone a torch in, and can't see any water anywhere.
I just rang a local repair man. He asked us to turn the machine back on to test the pump and it started pumping out the water straight away. The pipe was blocked under the sink - nothing wrong with the dishwasher.
