How do I know if there is a fault?

Your dishwasher will self-diagnose and let you know by beeping continuously.

If there is a fault in one of the drawers:

The drawer indicator of the drawer with the fault will flash red, and the fault code will flash in the display. If the fault is on a non-selected drawer, the display will revert to the flashing fault code for the affected drawer.

Note:

  • If a fault occurs in one drawer only you are still able to use the other drawer.
  • if you have paused a drawer and the drawer indicator was flashing red, and the other drawer then faults, the paused drawer indicator will switch to flashing white.

If there is a fault in both drawers:

  • the selected drawer indicator will flash red and the fault code will flash in the display.
  • the drawer indicator of the other drawer will also flash red.
  • Press the ‘∏’ button to scroll between the drawers and note down the fault codes for each drawer. There may be the same code flashing for both, or two different codes flashing, depending on the faults.

What should I do if there is a fault?

You may be able to fix some of the faults yourself – with others, you will need to contact Fisher & Paykel Customer Care to organise a visit by a service technician.
