What kind of dishwasher do you have? F2 error in each brand is interpreted differently.

SOURCE: DD603 upper drawer pump rotor will not turn - F2

Maybe you dont have to remove anything else.. try the rotor from the bottom drawer first. If this works just buy a new rotor..

SOURCE: My F&P dishwasher showed F2 and when checked

Hi

F2 error is displayed when control won't sense motor to be rotating, usually occurs due to frozen/bad motor or stuck motor rotor or the RPS sensor or a bad stator assembly. As the motor is replaced so I believe the issue is with the RPS sensor or the stator assembly that should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hi

F2 error is displayed when control won't sense motor to be rotating, usually occurs due to frozen/bad motor or stuck motor rotor or the RPS sensor or a bad stator assembly. If the motor rotor spins freely and both impellers are securely attached then the issue is with the RPS sensor. If the motor won't rotate then it is the motor rotor that has to be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

How do I repair F2 error


F2 error means the rotor is not functioning. Make sure there is nothing jamming the rotor arm. If the arm is clear, remove the wire trays, spray arm and bottom filter, then unscrew the blue housing that holds the rotor. Arrows indicate the direction to unscrew. The rotor can be lifted out. If it has seized you could try some WD40 or similar. There was a recall some years ago so you may be able to get free replacements.

I have a Fisher Paykel 605 double DD. I have an F2 error message. There was a frozen rotor, likely from disuse over the winter. I replaced the rotor and it still stops and shows the F2 display. There


Not sure if you have fixed the F2 problem yet. The rotor cavity may look clean but sometimes there is a piece of bone or seed stuck inside the channel connecting rotor cavity with pump sump. Take the rotor out and the drain filter out. Take a rigid thin wire and run it inside the channel connecting the two.

Also get some white vinegar and with a tooth brush rub it inside the rotor cavity to ensure all dirt is removed. The rotor speed sensing is done by the hall sensor sitting underneath the cavity. It is not visible from top. The sensor could be reading incorrectly. IF still no luck then Run in diagnostic mode - (but make sure you do not try any other function than what is mentioned here otherwise you could damage dishwasher).


DishDrawer Diagnostics can
only be entered in Power Off mode, ie. When there is no display on the LCD or the
badge LED's are off. Diagnostics is entered by holding the
Keylock and Start/Pause buttons simultaneously for 5
seconds. Ensure that
Keylock is pushed first.
All LED's and LCD segments (except keylock) are illuminated. Press Power button and display shows HO in red background. Press Start/ Pause. You are now in hardware diagnostic mode. Open drawer so that you can see inside. Press Start/ Pause a few times until FU shows on display. At this point press Keylock and water should flow in. Press Keylock to turn inlet valve off after water is collected under the wash arm (don't cover wash arm). Press Start/ Pause again and P1 will display. Press Keylock to turn rotor motor on and water will swish around. Press Keylock to turn motor off within a few seconds otherwise flooding could occur. Next press Start/ Pause once so P2 displays. Press Keylock to run rotor again but this time it will pump out. Let it run until the water is pumped out. Press Keylock to stop pump. This should test the rotor in both forward and reverse direction.
PRESS POWER BUTTON ANYTIME TO EXIT DIAGNOSTIC

If the hardware test worked ok then turn mains power to dishwasher off and on and start normal wash cycle. If there is still an F2 problem then hall sensor is faulty and needs replacement. Not easy to do and best left to technicians. By the way each dishdrawer has separate controller - so one drawer could be working fine and the other not.

F2 error code won't drain


The problem is with rotor assembly of the drawer that is causing the F2 error. Turn power off. Empty water using a small container and towel to dry base.


Remove the washer arm and drain filter sump cover. Twist the rotor at the base out from the socket gently but firmly.
Clean the cavity and check the rotor for damage. Put everthing back in and turn power on.If F2 does not go away then replace rotor.

The top drawer of our F & P dishwasher is showing and F2 fault, I have just fitted a new front control unit. F2 is the pump I believe, where on the unit do I find that?


The F2 fault implies there is a problem with the motor rotor which is located under the drain plate at the bottom right in the centre of the drawer. The rotor is actually driving the wash arms.

F2 does not necessarily mean you have to replace the rotor. It is also possible there is some debris inside the rotor cavity which is preventing the rotor from rotating at the normal speed.

Remove the racks and the wash arm. Twist the centre ring so that it disengages the drain plate. You can then pull the rotor out with a few back and forth twisting motions. Check if the cavity is clean. Re-insert everthing and start the wash cycle. If F2 comes in again, you will have to eliminate the cause by using the rotor from the bottom drawer and see if it makes any difference. You may then have to buy a replacement part.

good luck

My dishwasher is not working and has an error code of F2. How can I fix this problem?


F2 means that your rotor isn't moving properly and will need to be replace or it needs to be removed and check for something blocking it. Below is a link to a video that will show you how to take your dishwasher apart and repair your Fisher and Paykel unit.

Good luck.

I have a f1 come up and a f2 on my dishwasher what is it


f1 = Flood Code

This means that the dishwasher most likely has a leak

There is a float switch in the bottom of the machine and when water gets down there it trips the code

F2 = Roter not moving

you can remove the basket and spray arm and pull the roter out and make sure its clean and give it a try.

We have the error F2 showing on our dish drawers


normally the F2 showing on both drawers is unusual.

It is a rotor fault. Which means either the rotor that drives the wash arm and also works as a pump is either faulty or there is some rubbish stuck in the rotor cavity.

Lift the fiter plate out and open the rotor ring. Get the rotor out and inspect. If it looks ok or there was no noise when the F2 error showed up then the hall sensor mounted on the underside of the drawer is faulty.

The hall sensor can be hard to replace unless one has good experience in repairing dishwasher.

F2 showing on panel of F&P single draw dishwasher. When turned on (pushing the start button) it just makes a clattering noise.


F2 means that the motor has not been sensed as rotating. By the chattering sound i would say it is quite likeley that there is something obstructing the rotor. Check the rotor by removing the racking from the draw, removing the filter plate by turning the locking ring in the centre anti clockwise and lifting it out and doing the same for the rotor assembly. Once you'v got it out you should be able to see if something is blocking it. Maybe a bit of bone or glass. It may have snuck back into the channell between where the rotor and the filter sits so poke something through there to dislodge anything that might get sucked back into the rotor when it sucks. So yeah thats what i reckon. Give it a go.

Hope this might help
