Thanks!  It is a DD603B.  It looks like FP sent me the wrong part.  Thanks for your help.

Very True.  But my experience with these units is that on occaision, should someone overfill, the soap dispenser, or (god forbid) use even a little dishwashing liquid the F1 will occur.  Foam will build up in the drawer and overflow to the cavity.  Causing the sensor to trip.  it has been 7 months and running since the last fault on this unit.

We are having the dreaded F1 problem with our FP single door dishwasher - model number FP920.

Any help with this model would be appreciated.

 Thanks again for the advice.  I installed the retrofit link support kit today.  Total time: about 30 minutes.  Total savings: about $350-$400 which is what the FP Service guys quoted to install it.

We repair at least 10 Fisher and Paykels a week here in San Diego.
 
 Of all the F1 codes we see on them,   more than half are repaired by drying  out the components under the bottom drawer carefully with a blow dryer or hair dryer.

IF it's not repairable,  then we unfortunately have to order parts.    I love talking to those people in New Zealand (but the parts come from Huntiongton Beach hahaha)

 Just my 0.02

In the past, I have had solved my F1 beeping problem by following the excellent directions in the first page of this topic. Last week, I was out of town on business. My maid was at my house and at some point during the day, she called the maintenance man in my condo because the dishwasher was leaking. The maintenance man told me that when he got to the apartment, "the botton drawer of the dishwasher was open and it would not turn off." He turned off the circuit breaker. (I think that the dishwasher was just making the error sound it makes when it leaks and F1 occurs.  I don't think it was actually running when the maintenance man can to the apartment.)
This morning, I asked my maid why the bottom drawer of the dishwasher was open if the dishwasher was running. She said that the dishwasher was leaking and she pulled the door open to try to see what was wrong.

Tonight, I took the bottom drawer out and dried the area will with a blow dryer. I replaced the bottom drawer and started a rinse cycle on the bottom drawer. Shortly after I could hear the begin to turn, I noticed that there was some water leaking out the right side of the dishwasher onto the floor. I stopped the bottom drawer and opened it. There was water all over the outside of the right side of the drawer. (i didn't look at the outside of the left side of the drawer. Maybe it was wet too.) It seems like the seal at the top of the drawer is no longer good. The spray is shooting onto the top of the drawer and leaking out through the seal. I then opened the bottom drawer as far as I could so that I could see the bottom of the dishwasher behind the drawer. I then started the top drawer. As soon as I could hear the spray arm turning, I noticed water running down the back wall. I stopped the cycle. It seems like on both drawers the seal at the top of the drawer is no longer good. I don't understand how BOTH dishdrawers are leaking through the top seal. I feel like my maid must have done something drastic to cause this problem, but I can't imagine what she could have done. I looked at the seals on the top of the drawer and they both look normal to me. Yet water is leaking as soon as the spray arm starts spinning.

If anyone has any suggestions as to how I might try fixing this problem, I would be very appreciative.

Rob
